Donald has done worse than an incompetent job in leading this country through the COVID-19 Pandemic. Thanks to his denial of the Pandemic as a hoax, two critical months went by without mass emergency manufacturing of Ventilators, test kits and Respirators(masks). We are now seriously short of all of these.
Donald’s ignorance is appalling. In Asia, they use masks to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 or Coronavirus. This is done the opposite of Western thinking. Masks prevent the infected from infecting others. Anyone can be an unsuspecting spreader so everyone must wear one. Masks have little value protecting from getting infected except for the N95 that is in short supply and very difficult to use. It is for medical people only.

We are in deep trouble for a gripping analysis by the NY Times as to how bad it is Click. Read down to the “Hot Spots” for how fast it is spreading.
The election of 2020 is the only real way to rid this country of this demagogue and his cult-like supporters. We must remember all the reasons that prove Donald Trump is a demagogue and should be voted out.
The Never Forget List
More will be added
the boom before the bust
Today’s robust economy is being fueled by a trillion dollar plus annual deficit inflated by Trump’s tax cut. The US economy is heading for a cliff in the next recession. There will be much deeper deficits. We are in uncharted water as to how much total debt the Federal government and economy can handle.
Trump started trade wars especially with China by levying tariffs. In spite of his repeated lying that China pays the tariffs, the average US household will pay about $2,000 per year by the end of 2019 according to Forbes canceling out what little benefit the average US household got from the recent tax cut.
“Nobody knew healthcare could be so complicated”
During the election, Trump mumbled how he would fix healthcare by making deals with hospitals. This showed his ignorance as hospitals are a part of our expensive healthcare problem, but there is a lot more to it like unrestricted drug prices; discrimination against pre-existing conditions and the costs of having insurance companies.
Trump pushes for the repeal of Obamacare piece by piece or all at once. A Republican replacement that would have cut off tens of millions from healthcare and weakened protection from discrimination due to pre-existing conditions was voted down by Democrats and a few Republicans with a conscience who read the bill.
If Trump had read the bill, he would have pointed out what was so good about it. Instead, he showed his ignorance and laziness by saying “Nobody knew healthcare could be so complicated”.
The Iran Nuclear Deal Framework
The permanent members of the United Nations Security Council—the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, France, and China—plus Germany and the European Union spent years to put together an agreement to stop Iran nuclear development. Trump decided he knows better than everyone and withdrew from the agreement.
War with Iran
Without any evidence, Trump murdered one of Iran’s top leaders. This is an act of war and violation of the U.S. Constitution. Already 232 have died indirectly from this. Trump is guilty of causing these deaths and future deaths. This is only the beginning. Here’s why.
Syria and ISIS
Trump announced pulling U.S.troops from Syria betraying our Kurd allies and ignoring our other allies. Instead of pulling out the troops he seized oil fields in Northeast Syria.
Build a wall along the US Mexican border.
He is on record for saying Mexico would pay for it, but that was for his cult to fall for. It is being built in small sections with funds siphoned from other departments like the military. The rest would be with borrowed money adding to the federal deficit and national debt load.
There is proof that the wall can be defeated by going over it with ladders, under it with tunnels or through it by cutting holes.
The Paris Climate Agreement
The European Union and 174 states put together and signed a better than nothing agreement to curtail carbon emissions. Trump insists the global climate crisis is a hoax. That he is right and everyone else in the world is wrong.
Without consulting our military commanders and allies, he said he was pulling US troops out of Syria, but took over Syrian Oil fields instead. This at the cost of betraying our Kurd allies and dismaying our other allies.
Ukraine and the U.S. Constitution
By withholding military aid to Ukraine, he pressured the President of Ukraine to do things that would influence the US Presidential election. This jeopardized Ukraine’s ability to defend territory from Russia. It was also a violation of the US Constitution.
Trump has no degrees in science. He just knows that all the carbon and heat generated from fossil fuel burning by 7 billion humans is not affecting the Earth’s weather and climate.
The Paris Climate Agreement
The European Union and 174 states put together and signed a better than nothing agreement to curtail carbon emissions. Trump insists the global climate crisis is a hoax that he is right and everyone else in the world is wrong.
Environmental Protection Agency
Trump proposed cutting the EPA budget 31%, but it was shot down in the House.
Endangered Species Act and Migratory Bird Act
He weakens enforcement of existing environmental laws like the Endangered Species Act, the Migratory Bird Act and Offshore oil rig safety regulations.
Raw economics are all that count while environmental costs are minimized or ignored.
Expand the mining of coal and mining minerals in the Grand Canyon and Alaska.
Repeal of the Clean Water Rule protecting American Wetlands from pollution.
Loosening restrictions on coal-burning plants and extending the lives of old dirty plants. Report by the NRDC.
Build a wall along the US Mexican border that would do havoc to wildlife by blocking migration and access to water.
