by Stephen Lendman

"(They) won't help the economy, won't create jobs, will visit hardship on a whole lot of people."
He spent four years benefitting bankers, war profiteers, other corporate favorites, and super-rich elites. He did so at the expense of middle America. Others most disadvantaged suffered more.
His administration prioritizes austerity. He wants America's social contract destroyed. Straightaway in office he demanded it. He hasn't changed his mind.
He plays hardball. He wants Republicans blamed for bad policies he supports. They caused enormous harm to millions. He's got much more in mind. He pretends otherwise.
