Will Trump Win the 2020 Election?

That's the billion dollar question

Back in the day, not so long ago when America was naive to the real Donald "You're Fired" Trump, I predicted to my friends and family that he would win the presidential elections. I have always had a strong intuition about these types of things, but my nature always made me lean towards the underdog regardless. Trump was no underdog, so my assertion baffled my loved ones, though in that race neither Hillary nor Trump was an underdog so my intuition took over and I just knew he would win. As we are well into what is now definitely a government shut down I have to wonder will 2020 spell victory for Trump once more? If the midterm elections are anything to go by, I would say there is a 50-50 chance and here's why:

Everyone thought the midterms was a slam dunk, well everyone on the left at least. I have to admit with a President at war with the media it is getting difficult to decipher what is fact and what is fiction. Needless to say, the state of affairs remains poignant. The tension is palpable to all. And for this reason, I expected a landslide for both the Senate and the House in favor of the Democrats but this was not the case.

Why?

1. No president is perfect. Some have come close though in my opinion; most have embodied that all endearing quality of being "Presidential". Trump does not. He, in my opinion, is the antithesis of "Presidential".

2. Most Presidents try to be inclusive to represent, make or support laws and or changes that will benefit the majority at large. Trump does not. He supports or makes laws that support one type of majority and it definitely does not look like me or anyone considered ethnic.

3. Most Presidents tell the truth or some version of it centered in reality. Trump does not. The weirdest thing is Trump operates on the cut your nose to spite your face precedence. Case in point the current government shut down. And his supporters seem to operate on the same cut your nose to spite your face premise. First, Mexico was going to pay to build the wall, now Americans are going to pay for it with our tax dollars. The best part of it is that Trump just lies and states that Mexico is paying for it through the USMCA Trade Deal. Why did I say his supporters operated on the same premise, I bet many who are affected by the government and those who will be most affected by the upcoming recession will still stand by Trump bolstering his 2020 chances.

4. Most Presidents have an ego but Trump trumps them all (pun intended).

I could go on and on but I won't. Why? Because it seems that despite these obvious flaws and I have named only a handful, people love Trump.

And that is why he may have a chance to win again. To me, Trump signifies the white male in America. In corporate America, white men already have all the odds stacked in their favor but if you've ever encountered a bad boss, you may find more often than not those drunk with power are hell bent to corrupt the system, cheating and destroying their way to the top. I mean Trump only had a 1.5 million dollar loan from his father to start out? Delusional much?! But still insists on putting in place backhanded deals that continue to stack the chips in his favor to this day.

At home and in American neighborhoods, the white male life matters. Revered and looked upon with respect. Can walk through stores with the assumption of being non-threatening and the assumption that he always has the money to pay, whether that be the case or not. Even when a white male poses a threat to his life matter. You have seen videos of a white male with a gun and mental problem posing a real danger and cops shoot but once to disarm him. But again white lives matter.

What has all of this got to do with his 2020 campaign. Well, my point is with all these character flaws and even though he has every silver spoon and advantage a person can inherit, he would still lie, cheat and destroy his way to power. So Presidential. Trump's 2020 coming to you soon. Make America Grace-Less Again for another four years

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
