I’m not the biggest fan of Donald Trump.
I got so much grief for this stance in the Trump years. I smelled a rat even before he was sworn in as president when he started making big moves like appointing Gary Cohn as his chief economic adviser. Throughout the whole Trump era, I was extremely critical of the Trump presidency.
Now that Trump is gone, it feels like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. He isn’t around to demoralize and divide us these days. We don’t have to fight over that guy and his inept administration anymore. There were some diehards who rode the Trump Train to the end and who were left holding the bag after the Stop the Steal movement went south in the Capitol Siege. As his final act as president, Trump did nothing for them and pardoned a bunch of black rappers and the former mayor of Detroit.
There are millions of good people who still to this day adore the man and would happily vote for him again. They figure he was better than Joe Biden and the likes of Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. History might even end up proving them right. Most of those people don’t follow politics as closely as people like us do. If you tuned out of politics in 2016 and focused your attention on everyday life, it understandable that you would be less blackpilled and more motivated to vote for Trump a second time than the ideologues.
It was painful for us to watch Trump swing and miss and squander the mandate that he was given. To be crystal clear, it wasn’t entirely his fault. He was up against the Deep State, the Democrats, the worthless Republican Congress, the Never Trumpers in his own administration, the media, his own lack of experience, and so on. Still though, he did all kinds of shitty things which were avoidable like how he raised over $250 million dollars from his supporters with “Stop the Steal” after he had lost the election.
What happened to all of that money?
Pedro Gonzalez, one of our “Latinx” allies, has been looking into where all of that money went and Jared Kushner’s role in swindling Trump supporters out of millions of dollars.
Note: It wasn’t a total loss. Trump changed the voters which is more important than anything he did as president. By changing the voters, Trump has unlocked a lot of doors for us moving forward.
