Trump’s presidency has failed

The only thing that is unbelievable, Mr. Joe Sawchuk, is your flagrant disregard for reality and facts in your constant barrage of misinformation, deflection, and repeating already debunked conspiracy theories, including those about the Clinton’s.

His praise for Trump at this stage of his failed presidency is stunning in his disconnect between what he wants to believe about Trump and the proven disaster of his presidency. By comparison, George Bush, Jr. was a Rhodes Scholar, and thanks to Trump he looks good even though he bungled the economy and got America into two disastrous foreign wars.

Of course, we Canadians talk about Trump more than Justin Trudeau because we are horrified at watching how he is ripping the country apart and making it the laughingstock of the world as he wraps himself up in the flag of the Confederacy.

We are also horrified how otherwise sane people voted for this badly flawed individual in the first place, as he was nothing like the illusion that was created to play to the gullible to put their faith in him. Talk about misplaced faith but I suppose that as Trump is as anti-science, anti-intellectual as they are, it shouldn’t have been unexpected that the deplorables would come out for him (but still lose the popular vote).

I can well believe it when Mr. Sawchuk said that running for president was just a game for him as Trump truly sees himself still in a reality show and it is all about ratings, not good governance as he milks his position for all it is worth to him and his dysfunctional family. November is the chance for Americans to tell this fraud: You’re Fired! If that doesn’t happen, the experiment started by the Founding Fathers is finished.

Preposterous that Democrats were told that they need someone that is a duplicate of Trump. Biden is riding high in the polling, even in Texas, because he isn’t anything like Trump.

By the way, The Clinton Foundation was investigated ad nauseum and the probes were shut down as there was no criminal activity found. Compare that to the Trump Charity Foundation.

And yet Mr. Sawchuk keeps repeating the conspiracy garbage from QAnon as if it were based on facts which is it not. The only thing missing was his failure to bring up the bogus nonsense about George Soros.

As far as how generous Trump is to donate his $400,000 yearly salary, compare that public relations pittance to how his companies, golf courses, and hotels, have profited by tens of millions by his weekly golfing trips which have cost the American taxpayers over $130,000,000 and counting. And that isn’t even adding in the tens of millions that Donnie, Jr., Ivanka, and her husband have profited from Trump’s presidency.

Yes, Mr. Sawchuk, everything you write is truly unbelievable for good reason. It is all just paranoid, delusional thinking on your part.

By the way, I pre-ordered the book by his niece, Mary Trump, so it should be here by the end of the week. It is one thing for the majority of Canadians to call Trump a certifiable nut case and even more dangerous to American democracy then Fox News and Facebook are but as she holds a doctorate in clinical psychology, when she calls her Uncle Don so much damaged goods and tells him to resign, her opinions carry more weight.

I prefer people like Mary Trump who deal in proven facts and not fantasy filled rabbit holes.
