Trump believes there will not be shred of accountability for anything the does. He thinks believes the crap that circulates in his child's mind, that the people love him and he is invincible.


Trump Proposes Deep Cuts to Social Programs, Including Education and Trump's $4.8 Trillion Budget Plan Includes Cuts To Farm Subsidies, Food Stamps And Medicaid

If he bankrupts the people even as he ends everything once envisioned as "the Common Good," he will face real consequences! He labels everything and anyone he despises. Labeling social programs as 'socialism' his jaded eyes do not see the suffering of the middle class" and THAT will be his downfall."He does this, as The American workforce is hobbled by deteriorating schools, unaffordable college tuitions, decaying infrastructure, soaring healthcare costs and diminishing basic research.

Trump doesn't understand a basic reality of today's global economy: the profitability and competitiveness of American corporations aren't the same as the well-being and competitiveness of Americans American corporations have no particular obligation to the United States. They're obligated to their shareholders. About 30% of the shareholders of large American corporations aren't even American. As global money sloshes ever more quickly across borders, that percentage is growing.

You can fool some of the people all of the time, but".!
