WHY HATE DONALD TRUMP ??

I hear people say … “I hate Donald Trump and I will not vote for him on November 3rd”, and I wonder why? Is Trump perfect? Hell no! He is cocky, arrogant, controversial and sometimes condescending but he did go into Washington just to piss of the Democratic Party? No … he wanted to shake things up and (in his words) “Drain the Swamp”!  He didn’t need to be President as he was a happily married billionaire but he wanted to change the way politics were handled in Washington and did make a lot of people (both Democrat and Republican) unhappy.

I did a lot of research and want some answers … why do people say they hate Donald Trump?  Here are a few of the things that Donald Trump has accomplished during the past four years. I’m not bashing the Democratic Party or Joe Biden but I can’t understand why people have such blind-hatred towards this man. I know this is a long article but please look it over, keep an open mind.

 

WORLDWIDE

1) He brought home over 40 Americans held in captive (the last one from Iran).

2) Trump made history at the 2018 North Korea–United States Singapore Summit (commonly known as the Singapore Summit) between himself and North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un.  It was the first-ever meeting between leaders of North Korea and the United States.

4) Under Trump in 2018, the USA surpassed Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world’s largest producer of crude oil. U.S. oil production recently reached all-time high so we are less dependent on oil from the Middle East. The U.S. is also a net natural gas exporter for the first time since 1957.

MISC. ITEMS

1) Donald Trump works for FREE donating his salary to various charities.

5) Trump helped win United States bid for the 2028 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and the USA/Mexico/Canada united bid for 2026 World Cup.

6) Trump has made people take a hard look at the media … “Fake News” comes from both the Democratic and Republican parties and all media outlets. The days of watching and having 100% faith in the news is no longer a part of American society.

 

With all of the above items, why is there such blind hated for this man? Is it his hair style? Is it the fact that he has a young, beautiful wife? Is it because he was a rude and forceful television personality and said mean things like … You’re Fired? Is it because he is cocky, a bit crude and stubborn? Is it because of his crazy Twitter remarks? Is it because he was not one of the “good old boys” of Washington and when he was elected he pissed off ALL the oldtimers (Reps & Dems) who hated losing their free rides, crazy perks and cushy positions?  Trump has the guts to speak his mind and that is a unique trait in Washington. Doing this there is NO WAY he can keep everybody happy.

Donald Trump is NOT a racist … he is NOT anti-women … he is not anti-LGBTQ … he is NOT pro Russia … Please tell me why in the world do some people hate him so much???? I do not understand this at all. God knows he’s not perfect but he also isn’t the “Satan” some people make him out to be. No matter what he does there will be people bashing Trump in the media, on the internet and finding bad things to say about him.

Before the Coronavirus our economy was historically strong and the stock markets were breaking records! Things were looking pretty damn good in our country on all fronts. Then Covid-19 hit, George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis and the world stopped.

Those things were NOT Donald Trump’s fault but they have been turned into rallying points for the Democratic Party via protests, riots, city unrest and violence. The Democrats saying Trump hid Covid-19 facts and should have done more … like what??? He did everything possible … he listened to Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx (even when they were proved wrong) … he closed our international boarders … he listened to the CDC and WHO (again even when they were wrong), he gave daily updates and speeches to the public and … did everything he could not to panic the population. Yet, Joe Biden’s ads firmly state that Donald Trump lied and misled the United States and he is killing Americans.  Nobody knew anything about the virus and the President did everything he could to keep people calm and get all the facts he could. He isn’t a doctor and has zero blame regarding the virus that is worldwide – not just here in America!

Donald Trump is pro-police and pro-America … if you feel the police should be defunded, if you feel that the protests and riots in Democratic cities are justified and if you feel our country isn’t the greatest place in the world, then this article will do nothing but get you upset.

That said, when it comes to the election, I have zero faith in Joe Biden leading our country. He has been in the “Washington Political World” for over 40 years and what has he really accomplished? … I think he is too old … I feel he is not in a healthy state-of-mind … I don’t think he has the charisma to lead our country …  his track record shows nothing but double-talk … and I do not like what I have seen from the Democratic Party the past two+ years with the “impeachment trail” that was a joke … blaming  Trump for the Covid-19 Virus (he was ridiculed when he closed our boarders to China and I remember Nancy Pelosi saying,  “Everything is great, Come to San Francisco’s China Town”) …  and watching the violence that has happened in Democratic lead cities and states from coast-to-coast has made me sick to my stomach. Is Joe Biden really the best the Democratic Party could do?

Donald Trump may not be perfect but his track record is pretty damn solid. Before you vote on November 3rd, please think about what I have written and then think about what life will be with Joe Biden as your President.  There is no reason to hate Donald Trump!
