US electoral deceit has a long tradition
All of Trump’s decisions following his election prove beyond doubt that he has consciously deceived his voters, most of them victims of the ongoing economic downturn in the US. He never planned to improve working people’s living conditions. He used the common man’s despair, frustration, his rage and his lack of education to assume power and will use his presidency in order to implement measures that will only serve himself, his ilk and, above all, the financial industry which he has always been part of.
Such electoral deceit is not new in the US. During his two election campaigns in 2008 and 2012, Barack Obama promised to end all US wars, close Guantanamo, stabilize the state budget and end the social divide.
