Trump is a chaos – not legislation and order – president
Donald Trump isn’t thinking about listening to the considerations of George Floyd’s household – as Joe Biden did on Monday – or the hundreds of thousands of protesters which have been talking out in Floyd’s honor.
As an alternative, the president is pushing a laughable bumper sticker slogan much like his empty “construct the wall” promise of 2016. As a former sport present host and failed businessman, it’s all he is aware of how you can do.
However like his “construct the wall” tagline, Trump’s deranged “legislation and order” declaration by no means comes with any specifics and its solely intent is to divide voters. It additionally doesn’t make a lick of sense provided that the nation has fallen into chaos below his watch.
Fortunately, polling signifies that the American folks can see proper by Trump’s empty slogans as Joe Biden continues to increase his lead with 5 months till the election.
No matter what he says throughout his every day outbursts, Donald Trump is a chaos president, not a legislation and order president.
