Progressive Politics in Minnesota, the Nation, and the World

No Longer A Proud, Exceptional Country

Category: Donald Trump

I have paid attention to the political world for a long time. But I have never been so exasperated by an administration like this. And what is even more frustrating is that the Republican party - the so called fiscally conservative party, the law and order party, the moral values party - yes, that party, has become a completely unrecognizable party with little or no core values anymore.

Trump has debased political language even further than it was before...and it was bad. He has taken no responsibility for anything. He has made no secret of his core racism. He makes money off the presidency. He has turned our foreign relations into a hodge podge of who is better at complementing him and our core allies have no idea where they stand.

It is increasingly clear that no matter how many times he says there was no collusion.....there was. And the cover ups, the lies, the distortions....they are reckless and dangerous...and few take the word of the White House as even close to the truth.

How can we call this a democracy? How can we call this actual governance? Trump does not care about tradition, human rights, equal opportunity, or the basics of the middle class. This is all about enriching those who are already rich. And about holding power at the expense of relationships with other countries.

Who would look up to a country run like this? What moral example are we sharing? What is exceptional about our country with corruption so evident?

It is hard to know what to say. As long as Trump is our President, there is little to be proud of about America.

This must be changed.
