Reader would choose pot roast over Trump

As of October 14, Donald Trump has told 13,435 false or misleading claims. At least 25 women have made assault allegations against Donald Trump since the 1970s. He has mocked a disabled reporter and a young woman who has been universally praised for her efforts to save the earth and happens to have Asperger’s syndrome. He has praised brutal dictators, Putin, Kim Jong Un and more. He is on tape admitting to forcing himself on women and grabbing their genitalia without consent. He admitted to withholding foreign aid until a country to whom the aid was intended agreed to investigate a political rival.

The current cost to taxpayers for his golf outings, since becoming president, is approximately $110 million dollars. Donald Trump has spent at least 91 days at Mar A Lago since becoming president with the approximate flight cost, again to us taxpayers, being just over $47 million dollars. He has visited his clubs, on average, once every 4.6 days during his presidency.

As of January 2019, Trump had insulted 551 people (including private citizens), places, and things on Twitter, ranging from politicians to journalists and news outlets to entire countries. He has insulted gold star families.

These are the accomplishments of Donald Trump as president but please, tell me he’s “made America great again.” Sick of all of this? Great. Vote blue for president next year, no matter who is the nominee. At this point, I’d vote for a pot roast over Donald Trump.
