Let’s start with Trump’s claim to accomplishments; or those he takes credit…#246

These are just a few, but it is Trump’s “MO”, contemplating the past four years! Only eight days left.

 1. Trump took credit for 3 bills to benefit Native people and took credit. However, the tribal leaders credit efforts in Congress for those bills. The work was done by, Senator Maria Cantwell, a Democrat, and Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a Republican. Senator Tom Udall, Democrat of New Mexico. Senators Jon Tester, a Democrat, and Steve Daines, a Republican.

2. Trump took credit for the finalized creation of Space Force as our 6th Military branch.  However, Trump directed creation of ‘space force’ as sixth branch of military Trump said the new branch would be separate but equal to the Air Force.  But, senior military leaders publicly opposed its creation, including Trump’s secretary of defense, James Mattis, because they argued it would create further complicated bureaucracy and counteract the Air Force’s work to defend the country’s space assets.

3. Trump took credit for a law to make cruelty to animals a federal felony so that animal abusers face tougher consequences. He signed it…But, a bipartisan group in Congress also deserves credit for the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act.

4. Trump took credit for the violent crime rate has dropped steadily since 1999. The rate rose slightly in 2015 and 2016, but the general trend has been a long downward slide that predated his election. This drop begins long before Trump was elected president.

5. Trump signed a bill making CBD and Hemp legal. Congress deserves credit for the inclusion of this measure in the 2018 Farm Bill.

6. Trump’s EPA gave $100 million to fix the water infrastructure problem in Flint, Michigan.  Both President Barack Obama and Trump deserve credit for this allocation, which was set in motion before Mr. Obama left office.  However, people in Flint don’t trust that it is “fixed” because they were lied to; it has not been repaired and is not safe.

7. Under Trump’s leadership, in 2018 the U.S. surpassed Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world’s largest producer of crude oil. However, Domestic oil production has been expanding since 2010, predating the Trump administration.

8. Trump signed a law ending the gag orders on Pharmacists that prevented them from sharing money-saving information. Mr. Trump tweeted in support of this law and deserves credit for using the bully pulpit of the presidency to demand transparency in drug prices. But Congress deserves most of the credit for the unanimous 2018 passage of this transparency law, which prohibits gag orders that prevent pharmacists from sharing prescription drug prices with customers.

9. Trump signed the “Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act” which includes the “Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act” which both give law enforcement and victims new tools to fight sex trafficking. The bill was crafted and pushed through Congress by Representative Ann Wagner, a conservative Republican from Missouri, who thanked Ivanka Trump for advocating its passage.

10. Trump signed a bill to require airports to provide spaces for breastfeeding Moms.  Congress also deserves credit for the Friendly Airports for Mothers Act of 2017, which was championed by Senator Tammy Duckworth, Democrat of Illinois, and former Representative Stephen Knight, Republican of California.

Beginning in 2016 Donald Trump operated like a typical mob boss, in charge of an organized crime family. He surrounded himself with sleazy characters that live in the shadows and commit many different types of crimes, most of which they are never held accountable for.  In 2016, Manafort and Gates indictments read like novellas, filled with plot twists, mystery and intrigue. The indictments against 12 Russian intelligence agents were incredibly detailed, showing Putin and his pals just how much U.S. intelligence agencies know and can prove about their evil activities.

One thing we know for sure is that Donald Trump won the presidency in the Electoral College by the narrowest of margins. We may never know if the crimes that occurred caused Hillary Clinton to Someday; it may become clear that Donald Trump is both a criminal and an illegitimate president.

The House of Representatives impeached President Donald Trump. Following a weeks-long investigation into the president’s dealings in Ukraine, in which Trump allegedly pressured the Ukrainian government to investigate his political rivals, the House officially voted in favor of two articles of impeachment, making Trump the third president in U.S. history to be officially impeached. Rep. John Lewis said on the House floor. “Our children and their children will ask us, ’what did you do? What did you say?’ For some, this vote may be hard. But we have a mission and a mandate to be on the right side of history.”

VOTE, VOTE, VOTE…

Check facts; don’t listen to others from either party, then vote on your findings, and not what someone else told you.
