Republicans are raising deficit, ignoring infrastructure

I just came across something really sickening. It was a picture of a Neo-Nazi website founder wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. This man and thousands like him supported Donald Trump in the 2016 election. If this doesn’t bother you, then you aren’t paying attention.

Trump blames the Democrats for the government shutdown, after saying that he would be the one to shut it down and not blame the Democrats. He actually thought that the Democrats would give him the $5.7 billion for his pet wall. Where is all of the Anti-Trump speeches by the Republicans on his wanting to raise the deficit by building this wall? Do they remember that they blamed the Democrats for the huge deficit, but since Trump has become president, it has skyrocketed.

What about the infrastructure? Trump promised $1.5 trillion toward it. The $1.5 trillion went to the richest Americans, and now there will be nothing left for the infrastructure.

I’ll really be surprised if Trump lasts all the way up to 2020. He has too many items going against him not to be impeached. If he makes it to the 2020 elections, hopefully the American people will see that this man cannot continue to be our president.

Hey! Where’s Mexico’s first payment to build the wall?
