For nearly 38 months Trump has failed the American people. He has failed to address healthcare, the opioid crisis, immigration reform, and the national debt. Now he is facing another crisis, and failing once again.
44 previous presidents showed leadership during a national crisis. The American people count on the man or woman in the White House to make decisions which will avert the crisis and restore normalcy to our nation. This is not Donald John Trump.
This was his message to the Governors of all 50 states.
Donald Trump is taking “I don’t take responsibility at all” to the next level. In a Monday morning call with governors, Trump told them to find their own ventilators and other desperately needed equipment to battle the coronavirus crisis. “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment—try getting it yourselves,” Trump told the governors, The New York Times reports. “We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”
Throughout his time at Wharton, Daddy took care of him. He purchased deferments to keep him out of Vietnam, and over the last four+ years we learned that Fred also purchased his diploma from Wharton. DJT is not an educated man. The truth is Trump has always had someone take care of him. He is incapable of performing the duties of the President of the United States.
Daddy also gave him 432 million dollars which he quickly squandered.
In 1991 Trump’s real estate business was 900 million dollars in debt, and his casino business was failing. He was also in the middle of a nasty divorce with his first wife, Ivana. Following what has become a family tradition of criminal activity, Fred purchased 3.35 million dollars in chips from one of his casinos and never used them in violation of New Jersey state law. Trump was able to make a huge bond payment.
In 1988 Trump purchased a yacht from the Sultan of Brunei for 29 million dollars. In 1991, Saudi Royal Prince Alwaleed bin Talal bought Trump’s yacht for somewhere between $18 million and $20 million (reports vary). Another loss of between nine and 11 million dollars. However, the amount was enough to ease pressure from his creditors.
According to “Quartz:” “In 1995, Trump was still in deep trouble—and Alwaleed swooped in again. The prince took over Trump’s 51% stake in his beloved New York Plaza hotel. As a result, Trump’s creditors forgave $125 million of his debt.”
In 2005, Trump was once again in debt. After taking the Miss Universe Pageant to Moscow for the first time, he returned to New York and his real estate business began to flourish. You can put the pieces together.
Finally, in July of 2016 Trump’s campaign was running out of money. In August, after Ted Cruz ended his campaign, billionaire Robert Mercer took his money, Steve Bannon, and Kellyanne Conway to Trump’s camp. Although Mercer is secretive about his public and private life, there are several instances when he was seen near or on the company of Russian oligarchs.
Trump and the Trump World are nothing more than a façade. His claims of being a successful businessman and a deal maker are complete falsehoods.
DJT is unfit to be in control of our nation. He and his party are cowards and cannot be allowed to continue harming 330 million people to satisfy their own ambitions.
