Trump’s Divisive And Negative Inaugural Address Was Full Of Lies And Most Americans TRASHED It

Donald Trump delivered his inaugural address on Friday, and it was predictably divisive and negative.

Trump portrayed America as a weak, crime-ridden wasteland where everyone lives in poverty.

“Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation.

An education system flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge.

And the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.”

He also attacked President Obama by proclaiming that “January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again, called our military “depleted,” and railed against America’s crumbling infrastructure.

Of course, Trump left out the fact that Republicans blocked infrastructure spending for eight years. He also failed to point out that Republicans have been attacking education for years.

Also, our military is the most funded military in the world, so claiming that it is depleted is a lie and an insult to our troops.

It should be pointed out that Trump contributed to the shuttering of factories in this country by buying raw materials, like metals, from China to build his hotels with instead of buying it from American companies.

Crime is also down, and millions of Americans were lifted from poverty over the last eight years because of programs like the Affordable Care Act and minimum wage hikes, both of which Trump opposes.

“We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.”

Trump failed to mention that he wants to cut NASA’s budget too, supports the anti-vaccination movement, intends to double down on coal and oil to the detriment of clean energy, and is eliminating a government agency dedicated to researching and developing new technologies to reduce carbon dioxide in our atmosphere.

Seriously, Trump’s speech was totally contradictory to what his administration actually plans to do.

The inaugural address was a shit show and Americans confirmed it on Twitter.

Donald Trump’s speech was full of lies and promises that he won’t keep. He is already attacking education by putting a person who wants to destroy it in charge of the Education Department, and he is slashing the Transportation Department’s budget. Trump is also poised to strip healthcare from millions of Americans, which will make them poorer and more vulnerable. Furthermore, Trump is cutting funds from the Justice Department’s Civil Rights division, which will hurt people of color across the country.

Donald Trump doesn’t care about America. He only cares about himself and what his gullible supporters think of him.
