President Trump will go down as one of, if not the most, controversial POTUS to date, and for good reason. His decision to run for President and his campaign alone shocked the nation and sent people into a frenzy. He doesn't seem to care what anyone thinks of him but oddly seems to care what everyone is saying about him.
I truly cannot imagine the pressure of being the leader of the free world. The endless decisions he has to make, the sleepless nights, and the constant criticism have to take such a toll on this man. My question is, who cares? He is the one who chose to run for POTUS, he is the one who makes the racist and idiotic remarks that cause people to dislike him so greatly, he is the one that did this to himself.
As you may be able to tell already, I have not grown to like this man in the slightest.
In fact, I have grown to dislike this man even more than before. There is little to no reason he should've been able to run for this position, let alone become POTUS. He was barely qualified at the time of announcing his campaign and ended up winning against arguably the most qualified candidate to ever run for POTUS, Hilary Clinton. Obviously, she has her flaws, but C'MON people, how did we let this happen?
Watching his blatant disregard for any walks of life besides wealthy white males among other things is truly barbaric and simply disheartening as a citizen of this nation. We, as a nation, managed to elect an official to run our nation who has been accused of sexual assault by over a dozen women, infidelity, and a man who tells constant lies to the public become the leader of our nation.
Nothing ever happened with any of these women. Totally made up nonsense to steal the election. Nobody has more respect for women than me!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1476556162.0
Nice defense, Donald! Everyone totally believes you now! Not. We absolutely should not believe a word this man says. According to the Washington Post, in the first 649 days of his presidency alone, President Trump told the public 6,420 false or misleading claims. So much for "fake news" when it's coming from the man who coined the term.
a person who has an excessive interest in or admiration of themselves.
Just thought I'd throw that in there. Anyway, did I mention he was responsible for the longest government shutdown in history because he didn't get what he wanted and threw a tantrum? Beginning on December 22nd, 2018, President Trump decided to shut down the U.S. Government upon not receiving funding for his border security wall he wants to be built on the southern border of the U.S. as soon as possible. This wall was a major promise in his campaign in 2016 when he claimed he would make the Mexicans pay for it to keep themselves from entering our country illegally. (no seriously anyone that actually believed that was going to happen, I'm worried about you). After not receiving funding for this wall and starting the government shutdown, denying thousands of government workers their paychecks, he continued to throw a hissy fit for over a month. The shutdown eventually ended on January 25th, 2019.
Moving on, regarding the wall, President Trump believes that the best and ONLY effective way to keep illegal immigrants out of our country from the southern border is to build a wall. He has claimed that the people coming into our country from Mexico are "rapists," "drug dealers," and "criminals," when in fact, the numbers for these crimes in the U.S. are dominantly U.S. citizens. The wall is estimated to cost billions of dollars for construction and labor. If Mexico is not paying for it, the U.S. taxpayers aren't paying for it, and the U.S. Government won't give him the funding he wants so badly, how is he planning on building this wall?
There are very few things to like about this man. Perhaps you can find one? No? Me neither. Since becoming the leader of our nation, my dislike for this man has only increased. He has gotten away with far too much since becoming POTUS, and I hope to see repercussions for his actions in the near future.
