Donald Trump is with no doubt the most incompetent president of the USA. Not only is he a far-right sexist, he is a racist and a liar. Mentally it is said that Trump is unstable and doesn’t know how to handle the presidency. The people installed by the Administration also show incompetence, but they are his henchmen and have to be stupid. Trump wants people at his side who are uncritical. As a narcissist and pseudo-billionaire (which Donald Trump is not) the president claims he is a ”genius” and a superman. This is why capitalists are the best dictators. Trump cannot think like a democrat because he was absolute master over the Trump Organisation. Now as president, Donald Trump thinks he has the same absolute control over the USA!
The man in the White House is a piece of shit, a capitalist exploiter who played on the deep hatred of working class people towards the political establishment. Trump used a populist agenda to win the 2016 presidential elections. Now after sitting on the throne of U.S imperialism for a year, we know what that man has done. In the first five months in office, Donald Trump did:
- Fired the director of the FBI for failing to demonstrate personal loyalty to him.
- Tried to intimidate his former FBI director into silence by threatening to release secret recordings of their conversations.
- Encouraged America’s intelligence chiefs to undermine the FBI’s Russia probe.
- Undermined international cooperation on climate change
- Mendaciously accused London’s first Muslim mayor of being indifferent to terrorism, hours after a terrorist attack in London.
- Praised a foreign leader for his policy of sanctioning the extrajudicial killings of thousands of suspected drug dealers and users.
- Released a budget with a $2 trillion math error.
- Shoved the prime minister of Montenegro out of his way, so that he could stand at the front of a group of NATO leaders.
- Allowed the Justice Department to prosecute a woman for laughing at Jeff Sessions.
- Knowingly hired a paid agent of the Turkish government as his national security adviser.
These are only 10 things the ”Leader of the Free World” did from early to mid 2017. Among the more serious politics of the U.S government is the ending of Internet Neutrality in December 2017 and the deregulation of environment laws. It is sad that Trump has quietly ended over 30 environmental rules, that prevent capitalists from pollution nature with their toxic waste products. The Keystone XL pipeline has been allowed to be build by Trump, despite protests from native Americans. Trump and the Republican Party claimed to it create new jobs for working class people. Reality is that 30.000 people are needed for construction, but only 3.000 will be hired permanent. Stories are already coming out that oil is spilling from cracks, polluting the native lands. But Trump does not care about that, he never cares about anything but his own pocket!
On the BIG FAT WALL Trump wants to build between the USA and the UMS (United Mexican States), it seems that the American tax payer will pay for it. Because Mexico will never pay for that fucking wall. Trump had no choice but to ask congress for the billions needed to pay for a Berlin Wall type. So all those people who voted for Donald Trump in the hope that Mexico would pay for a wall, they now face reality. That wall maybe build, but they will pay for it and not the UMS!
In January 2017, Trump had an approval rating of 45,5% in favor to 41,3% not in favor. After one year in office, his popularity has severely dropped to 54,5% disapprove to only 39,1% approve. No other president has been so unpopular after only 12 months in office. Even George W. Bush did not get this low approval rating in his first year. This shows that a clear majority of the American population is rejecting the presidency of Donald Trump. Understandable because that old capitalist is not working for them. He is a president of the 1%, the establishment that owns all the wealth of America. The only reason why Trump won the presidency was because of Hillary Clinton. That woman is the queen of the political establishment, love by capitalists and right-wing politicians. Even the Republican Party could work with a Clinton presidency as she supported many Republican ideas. Trump played the role of the outsider who would shake the establishment. Too many were misled into thinking he would change Washington DC. It turned out he is a incompetent idiot who only looks after his own!
The rise of the Donald is a byproduct of the crisis in which the capitalist system is in. It does however allowed for working class people to look beyond the propaganda of the ruling class. Socialism is not longer a ugly word, the youth is more supportive of socialist ideas as Bernie Sanders demonstrated. He maybe a social democrat, but what Sanders is saying is largely true. Americans need a revolution against the ruling elite. This revolution however cannot happen through the Democratic Party. This is where revolutionary socialists differ with Sanders and the Democratic Socialists of America. Despite growing to 20.000 members, the DSA is not yet braking with the Democrats. To think that you can reform a right-wing party is wrong. The Democratic Party was never leftist nor progressive!
Three more years await us with president D. Trump. Three more years with this ultimate capitalist exploiter and his far-right party in office. Voting for Democrats is not the answer. A new party must be created to fight the political establishment. Socialists are fighting for this to happen. If the working class of America is able to rally in millions against Trump, they can defeat him. The far-right president may claim to speak for ordinary workers, but what good as he done for the 99% in 2017? Only the most brainwashed idiot remains loyal to a pseudo-billionaire like Trump, who is not fighting for working class interests!
