I Don't Understand How People Can Support Donald Trump As President Of The United States

A break-down of some his offensive comments on Twitter.

Growing up in the political climate of the twenty-first century has been nothing short of interesting. With presidents accused of being non-American Citizens, and some having conspiracy theories chasing them it is no wonder politics in America is a joking matter. The main event of the joke happens to be Donald Trump. When Trump was elected into presidency the world as we knew it ended. Our president's main form of communication became tweets, his wife stealing speeches from previous first ladies. In this article, I won't be taking a political stance on what Trump has done to this country the good nor the bad.

I will be coming at this article from a humanistic approach and preach out morals because a man without morals is no man to follow.

Let us start with misogynistic comments, shall we? In 2018 Trump had a rampage of tweets following the Stormy Daniels showdown. He tweeted calling her a "horse face" among countless other offensive tweets. In 2015 during his campaign, he bashed Clinton with awful comments about her appearance, "Look at that face. Would anybody vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?" from September 9, 2015. Trump is someone who will say whatever to get the attention off of him and in the end, be a bully while doing it. It seems as though he never graduated from elementary school where name calling should have stayed.

Moving on to his complete idiocy, his stance on global warming. With articles and reports being published year-round of the dangers of climate change, and the effects on the planet from PLOS Biology and "The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science" anyone who disagrees with climate change is disagreeing with evidential facts based off of years of research. The fact that our president took his time to tweet out a mockery of climate change, implying that he believes Global Warming is only, in fact, the warming of Earth.

Trump also took America off the table for the Paris Climate Deal in 2017.

Finally, we can talk about all of the unspeakable laws that Trump has passed? In 2018 there was a tsunami of reports of the immigration camps that Trump signed an executive order on a policy to detain entire families together in these "camps" ignoring the legal time limits on the detention of minors.

The only counteract for this is that Trump is putting America first, but this can be slapped back into the Trump supporter's face. Trump is turning his back on American soldiers after tweeting in 2017 that he would ban trans military service. The Trump administration will be able to enforce its ban on transgender people serving openly in the military. Trump backed his ban up by stating that "Our military must be focused, cannot be burdened with the disruption that transgender in the military would entail." Trump's ban allows transgender soldiers to fight, but only if they enlist under their biological gender.

All of these tweets and horrible comments are just a pinch in the bowl full of questionable things that the president has done during his short term so far. None of these include the racist comments that the president has made or even the rape and sexual assault allegations by more than thirty women. The president has done a few things that have benefited our country but the questions that I keep coming back to are is the good outweighing the bad? And what if he wasn't a white wealthy man? I encourage you to do your research, to ask yourself questions, and to take a stance for this country because after his presidency Trump will go back to a multi-billionaire, while we have to stand back and try to fix what is left of our broken country.

I Might Have Aborted My Fetus When I Was 18, But Looking Back, I Saved A Child’s Life

It may have been one of the hardest decisions of my life, but I wouldn't be where I am today if I hadn't had done it.

Due to recent political strife happening in the world today, I have decided to write on a very touchy, difficult subject for me that only a handful of people truly know.

When I was 18 years old, I had an abortion.

I was fresh out of high school, and deferring college for a year or two — I wanted to get all of my immature fun out so I was prepared to focus and work in the future. I was going through my hardcore party stage, and I had a boyfriend at the time that truly was a work of art (I mean truly).

Needless to say, I was extremely misinformed on sex education, and I never really thought it could happen to me. I actually thought I was invincible to getting pregnant, and it never really registered to me that if I had unprotected sex, I could actually get pregnant (I was 18, I never said I was smart).

I remember being at my desk job and for weeks, I just felt so nauseous and overly tired. I was late for my period, but it never really registered to me something could be wrong besides just getting the flu — it was November, which is the peak of flu season.

The first person I told was my best friend, and she came with me to get three pregnancy tests at Target. The first one came negative, however, the second two came positive.

I truly believe this was when my anxiety disorder started because I haven't been the same ever since.

Growing up in a conservative, Catholic Italian household, teen pregnancy and especially abortion is 150% frowned upon. So when I went to Planned Parenthood and got the actual lab test done that came out positive, I was heartbroken.

I felt like I was stuck between two roads: Follow how I was raised and have the child, or terminate it and ultimately save myself AND the child from a hard future.

My boyfriend at the time and I were beyond not ready. That same week, I found out he had cheated on me with his ex and finances weren't looking so great, and I was starting to go through the hardest depression of my life. Because of our relationship, I had lost so many friends and family, that I was left to decide the fate of both myself and this fetus. I could barely take care of myself — I was drinking, overcoming drug addictions, slightly suicidal and living with a man who didn't love me.

As selfish as you may think this was, I terminated the fetus and had the abortion.

I knew that if I had the child, I would be continuing the cycle in which my family has created. My goal since I was young was to break the cycle and breakaway from the toxicity in how generations of children in my family were raised. If I had this child, I can assure you my life would be far from how it is now.

If I had carried to term, I would have had a six-year old, and God knows where I would've been.

Now, I am fulfilling my future by getting a BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, having several student leadership roles, and looking into law schools for the future.

Although it still haunts me, and the thought of having another abortion truly upsets me, it was the best thing to ever happen to me. I get asked constantly "Do you think it's just to kill a valuable future of a child?" and my response to that is this:

It's in the hands of the woman. She is giving away her valuable future to an unwanted pregnancy, which then resentment could cause horror to both the child and the woman.

As horrible as it was for me in my personal experience, I would not be where I am today: a strong woman, who had overcome addiction, her partying stage, and ultimately got her life in order. If I would have had the child, I can assure you that I would have followed the footsteps of my own childhood, and the child would not have had an easy life.

Because of this, I saved both my life and the child's life.

And if you don't agree or you dislike this decision, tough stuff because this is my body, my decision, my choice — no one else.
