Trump’s report card: 10 of the worst things that he has done

Begin quote from Trump’s report card:

This list could be much, much longer, but here are 10 of the worst things that Trump has done this year.

1.  Promoted Bigotry And Racism

This is the very worst: Trump’s bigoted and racist views have encouraged other like-minded people to emerge and be proud of their hateful attitudes. Consider his response to the participants in the August Charlottesville protest, organized by white supremacists and neo-Nazis carrying Confederate and Nazi flags: Trump called them “very fine people.” 

2. Destroyed The Environment

It’s hard to know where to start with this one, since Trump has made it a priority to get rid of every regulation President Obama put in place to protect the environment. One of Trump’s first actions was to announce the repeal of the Clean Power Plan, one of the toughest actions against global warming ever put in place by the U.S. It’s never taken effect and hasn’t been repealed yet, but that hasn’t stopped the Trump administration from reducing regulations around vehicle emissions, toxic waste, methane leaks and the pollution of drinking water. And let’s not forget the denial of climate change and the withdrawal from the Paris Peace Accords.

7. Lined His Own Pockets

Trump has used the presidency to enrich himself from day one, whether it’s Trump hotels welcoming foreign dignitaries or the $91,655,424 that American taxpayers have spent on his golf trips. And now Trump will likely be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the tax bill that he signed into law last week. No wonder he wanted to celebrate. Since he hasn’t released his tax returns, it’s impossible to say how much he will gain, but it will undoubtedly be in the millions. Oh and other members of his already-wealthy family like his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner also stand to save millions.

8. Made America Less Great

In a survey conducted annually by the Nation Brands Index, the U.S. has lost its top place ranking as the country with the best international image. The top spot is now held by Germany while the U.S. has dropped to sixth place. The poll questioned public opinion on 50 countries, asking questions about governance, culture, heritage, exports, tourism, investment and immigration. Countries ahead of the U.S. were France, the U.K., Canada and Japan. Those were the overall rankings, but in the area of governance, the U.S. has dropped from 19 to 23 under Trump.

3. Encouraged Police Brutality

Yes, really. Trump received applause when he addressed a group of police officers on Long Island in July and instructed them to “Please don’t be too nice” when throwing suspects into the back of a police car. He went on, “Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody, don’t hit their head, I said, ‘You can take the hand away, OK?’” 

4. Abandoned Puerto Rico

Last October, when Trump visited Puerto Rico after the island’s devastation by Hurricane Maria he tossed rolls of paper towels at its residents and promised his administration would provide all kinds of aid and would write off Puerto Rico’s $72 billion debt. He also sought to downplay the severity of the destruction in the island, compared to that wrought by Hurricane Katrina. But the debt has not been written off, around 1,065 people died on the island in September and October, on par with the Katrina deaths and now, three months after the storm, thousands of these American citizens still have no power, no homes and no access to potable water. 

5. Pushed “Fake News”

Trump, along with the flunkies like Mike Pence who attempt to outdo each other in obsequious praise of their master, is waging a war on the truth with his constant declarations of “Fake News” whenever a critical voice is raised against him. Trump cannot stand to be criticized, even when the truth is obvious, as in the size of his inauguration audience. While Trump decries the truth as fake news, Kellyanne Conway came up with “Alternative facts.” This authoritarian approach to any events that don’t match Trump’s prescribed opinions and policies is extremely dangerous.

6. Authorized More Arrests By ICE

It started early on: In the first weeks of Trump’s presidency, immigration arrests went up 32.6 percent; Trump had pledged that he was only going after the criminals but in fact ICE arrests of non-criminals doubled. As if that weren’t horrendous enough, the Department of Homeland Security has come up with a plan to separate families: When officials detain undocumented immigrants near the border with Mexico, the children will be handed over to Child Protective Services while their parents will be sent to detention centers. 

7. Lined His Own Pockets

Trump has used the presidency to enrich himself from day one, whether it’s Trump hotels welcoming foreign dignitaries or the $91,655,424 that American taxpayers have spent on his golf trips. And now Trump will likely be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the tax bill that he signed into law last week. No wonder he wanted to celebrate. Since he hasn’t released his tax returns, it’s impossible to say how much he will gain, but it will undoubtedly be in the millions. Oh and other members of his already-wealthy family like his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner also stand to save millions.

The poll questioned public opinion on 50 countries, asking questions about governance, culture, heritage, exports, tourism, investment and immigration. Countries ahead of the U.S. were France, the U.K., Canada and Japan. Those were the overall rankings, but in the area of governance, the U.S. has dropped from 19 to 23 under Trump.

9. Stirred Up Violence In The Middle East

Earlier this month, Trump declared Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel, a move which provoked immediate protests and violence in the region and brought condemnation from around the world. (Not to mention, why does a U.S. president have the right to name the capital of another country?)  Incredibly, Trump called his announcement and the decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem “a step to advance the peace process” between Israel and Palestine. To no one’s surprise, Israel’s Netanyahu called this a “historic landmark” while Palestinian President Abbas said the U.S. was making a “declaration of withdrawal” from peace process negotiations.

10. Lied Hundreds Of Times

As a teacher who tries to hold students responsible for telling the truth, this is especially galling to me. It’s hard to insist on truth and integrity when our president will say anything as long as it makes him look good. The Washington Post has been keeping track of Trump’s lies: By the middle of November, after 298 days in office, Trump had made 1,628 false or misleading claims. That’s about six a day, but that’s only what the Post’s reporters have access to, so the number is probably much higher.

All of this means that we must keep resisting as we head into 2018 and fight for changes in the November 2018 elections so that we can begin to take pride in the U.S. again.

  1. My God! This is all liberal BS. . ICE going after non criminals . Who do they arrest ? Wetbacks. Are wetbacks here “legally” ( notice the word legally)? No. Okay. Kinda looks like they’re criminals . Are you on the pipe? You gotta be smoking crack. 91 million dollars for golf trips. Get the f–k outta here. Let’s talk about how much money the darkie cost us with his gorilla wife. She and the kids took separate planes when they’d go somewhere. Her fat ass couldn’t wait 4 f–kin hours,so they left before Barry . Yeah that set us back a few bucks. Causing trouble in the Middle East ? They’ve had troubles over there ,since man first walked upright. Gimme a break on that one. Destroyed the environment ? How? All he did was lift restrictions on drilling. He freed up oil reserves in Alaska and off the east coast in the Atlantic so we can drill. All the crybabies that go on about that,still drive cars. They take airplanes when they go somewhere. So that makes them hypocrites. Until they take a bike or ride a horse,they need to shut the f–k up. Global warming? Ha! What a joke. The 2 guys that originally wrote that paper,admitted they lied. Back in 2012 or 2014,they had a global warming conference in Amsterdam . How did all those idiots get there? That’s right. Private jet. How did the get around when they got there? By car. Trump abandoned PR? If I remember correctly,a hurricane hit along the Gulf Coast. Barry didn’t visit there. He was too busy playing golf. Trump promotes fake news ? BS! CNN is so guilty of that. Lined his pockets ? You mean like Barry and Hilarry lined “their pockets”? Every politician lines their pockets. Let’s talk about that black bitch Maxine Wayers. Calling for Trumps assassination . Why isn’t her black ass in jail. If someone did that with Barry ,FBI would’ve been on them like stink on shit. I’ll bet a dollar to a donut,all this BS you’ve presented here,came from liberal crybaby sources. Hilarry lost . Get the f–k over it. Stop your damn crying. While we’re at it. Don’t sit and tell me libs ain’t racist. BLM. Black Panthers. Ring a bell. The libs support them. They ain’t nothing but racist niggers. You need to also go back and see how badly Barry destroyed our military while you’re at it.

  2. FG

    You obviously have a deep-seated hate for Trump and I can understand by some of the things that he does but you have to understand that the way Trump is presented in the media is all negative there’s nothing positive about him. Even a broken clock is right twice a day so maybe you should think about what positive things has come out of him being a president. I think that he is moving on the immigration issue which is a big problem and even though I don’t agree with his views of Jews and Jerusalem and all those type of things I think that he’s definitely better than Hillary because she was a crook and a murderer and a thief so Trump has not killed anybody but the Clinton’s were behind a lot of people being killed so I think you’re being very unfair about Trump but again you have your opinion. The whole thing with us revisionist is how is Trump’s leadership going to affect us that’s the thing that I’m concerned about. I really don’t care about anything else about Trump and what he’s doing because again he’s in there and I think he’s being influenced by a lot of the Jews so the only thing I care is how we are going to be dealt with on Free Speech issues and things of that sort and that’s what I think you should be concerned about.

    • You wrote: “[Trump is] definitely better than Hillary because she was a crook and a murderer and a thief so Trump has not killed anybody but the Clinton’s were behind a lot of people being killed so I think you’re being very unfair about Trump but again you have your opinion.”

      Whom did Hillary murder? Whom did she cheat when “she was a crook”?
      From whom did Hillary steal?

      • Hilarry stole from the American people. How about that little scandal she and Billy boy were involved in. While we’re on that . She’s married to a draft dodging piece of shit. Who disrespects the office of the president,by getting a BJ in the Oval Office . Let’s not forget all our good people that were murdered in Benghazi,because of her and her worthless ass boss. They’re both spineless ass crybabies.

      • The Clinton Foundation stole from citizens who donated, conducted a “pay-to-play” scheme for foreign diplomats and dignataries who donated for favors, and generally laundered millions of dollars they made in facilitationg contracts and sell-offs (research Uranium One) and shaking people down through their false front “charity.”
        Charles Ortel is the expert on Clinton Foundation malfeasance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECb_4VxEQdk. Look over to the right of the YouTube page for other You Tube channels where Charles Ortel has been interviewed about this. Since FG seems to be oblivious to the rise of the alternative media which is replacing the mainstream media as the preferred source of news for everyone 70 years old and under, I would suggest getting up to speed on this by following Lionel Nation on You Tube (real name Michael William Lebron). He has become a bellweather between the old media and the new media and his career straddles both. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjLoqu_X540

      What people, who were killed, were the Clintons behind the killing?

      • If Jimbo ain’t got a list,I do. Start with Ron Brown. Supposedly died in a plane crash. Pathologist said there was a hole in his skull,resembling a gun shot. Ed Wiley. Found dead with gunshot wound to the head. Remember Mary Mahoney? She was murdered a couple day before she was gonna go public with her story about WH hijinks. James McDougal. Supposedly died of a heart attack. Gimme a break. What they all have in common. They’re all around the Clintons somehow. Your buddy Barry doesn’t exactly have clean hands either. Well. Can’t expect too much out of a couple disloyal f–ks. Don’t forget. They protested the war in Nam,while in Moscow. Like I said. He’s a draft dodging piece of shit. His wife is the way she is,cause she hangs around a draft dodger.

    • Jim,
      I pointed out in Aug of 2015 that Trump would be the POTUS (unless, at that time, the jews wanted a jew in office, then they would allow Sanders the win… he was obviously beating Clinton). Following up shortly thereafter, I made it clear that Clinton was a non-starter, but would be forced to run against Trump, who was acting as the white man’s savior to garner the vote. The military was key, because they would never follow Clinton’s orders for more Israeli directed wars in the ME (and elsewhere that serves the jews’ interests), but they will do anything the ‘God Emperor’ directs.

      To me Clinton is a horrible person with no real leadership skills. She has taint and disorder all about her.

      When the Dem elections took place, it became obvious that Sanders was hoo-dooed by the machine. All of this was to force Trump as the POTUS.

      My disdain for Trump is because he is the most obviously jew-led person that has ever held the office of the POTUS. Do I have to say here that this is the LAST thing we need in America.

      I will say here for all to see… Trump is the hammer the jews will use for anti-semitism laws, etc.

      Trump supporters (I call them Drumpfters) have been hoodwinked and now support their own demise, but are seemingly too stupid to yet see it.

      My saying for anyone who participates in these sham R vs D sElections, especially the cult followers of POTUSes that systematically lie and destroy what we have.

      a Drumpfter = an Obama Maniac = a Bushie = a Clintonista

      No Difference at all.

      Never an R or D Again!

      Stop the Hope BS. The system is broken and owned by jews. It cannot be fixed or used with success.

      • I pretty much agree with what you said.
        I don’t have any hope in any politician that rules because for them to get there they had to get there by the Jews in some way some more than others.
