Thank God it’s over and it’s time for us Progressives to face the facts and regroup to make sure the Donald Trump administration doesn’t wreak havoc. It will be hard with the WH and Congress in the control of the GOP.
Hillary Clinton carried the baggage that obviously defeated her on Nov. 8, spawning a situation we will have to live with for the next four years. Has everyone forgotten all the things Trump said over the period of the campaign? Things like:
“undocumented immigrants will be deported en masse, Arab Americans will be racially profiled and the United States will “bomb the s— out of ISIS.”
“In Trump’s America, foreign Muslims will be banned from the US, Syrian refugees sent back to their war-torn country and free trade agreements torn to shreds. And, of course, the US will build a ‘great wall’ on the US-Mexico border, which Mexico will have to pay for.”
And even more in the article underlined above. These are not Presidential comments and it is hopeful that the tone of the President-elect reported by Pres. Obama, in their personal conversation today, will prevail in Trump’s governing of this country. I am not yet ready to predict a George W. Bush comeback but the next few months will determine that.
