Donald Trump Is Not What's Wrong With America

America has many internal networks leading to the divide of the people that Donald Trump is not responsible for.

Donald Trump Is Not What's Wrong With America

Donald Trump and his family have faced adversity since early 2016 when Trump announced his run for President. A successful businessman who has managed to get out of financial problems for his businesses multiple times suddenly had every one of his failures publicized and scrutinized by those who opposed his campaign.

When Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the November election, those who opposed him began to grow extremely absurd in their "resistance" efforts. Flags, T-shirts, bumper stickers, and other paraphernalia openly refuting the President of the United States were acceptable thanks to the First Amendment, but many supporters of Trump viewed this as an act of defiance and "sore-loseredness."

Several major news networks who had been shoveling manure on Trump and his campaign all the while slandering him and his family showed no signs of letting up on their abuse. It seems everything to date that goes wrong, whether it be Charlottesville, Hurricane Harvey, or any other major event that did not directly involve Trump have somehow been his fault. This is absolutely ridiculous. Not only is the President incapable of controlling the weather, but he is also incapable of dictating where the storm goes.

The divide in America is not Trump's doing. Plain and simple. The people have created the divide and they are using Donald Trump as the scapegoat for the issues they have created. Not only are the people causing the divide in America, but the media has become obviously biased as well as social networks such as Google, Twitter, and Facebook.

Facebook has repeatedly been exposed for deleting or blocking conservative opinions while glamorizing liberal viewpoints. Google shows the left wing results and may all but hide or delete the right wing search results to further control the American people attempting to perform political research. Twitter has been deactivating certain accounts such as "The Activist Mommy" among others and such blatant bias does not go unnoticed.

Another issue with America is the education system. The education system preaches freedom of speech is not as important of political correctness and such a stance can be likened to the control of the people in George Orwell's book 1984.

The dumbing down of the English language eliminates words that may be deemed offensive to some and acceptable to others and can destroy the ultimate meaning of free speech. Destruction of free speech means destruction of liberty.

What Americans need to realize is the fact that the problems in the nation today are not Trump's doing. The problems with the nation stem from an inability to respect and acknowledge differences. This is seen every single day. In the news, reporters are always wanting to demonize or vilify someone rather than give hard facts.

On social media, people are far too easily offended to be deemed rational human beings. In public, hype and tension played up by the media and social networking lead to acts of hatred and violence. Granted, there are hate groups out there, but they can only be defeated if Americans of all walks of life stand together.

Logic and reason lies within those who stand together. And with those who stand together, they are strong enough to destroy the wrongs in society today. America must be willing to put differences aside and respect one another, even if they do not agree with the decisions of another. It is perfectly fine to not agree with someone's life choices, but it is not fine to belittle or antagonize them.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
