Honest question, how (caused by Trump)?
Three main things (in order they happened):
- Puerto Rico. Wife’s extended family has a member from there (who’s family is still living there). His handling was a absolute disgrace of American lives.
- Racial tensions. It’s no secret America has deep rooted racial issues. Trump has given a voice for them to be heard and act. It’s a fucking joke he’s let it get to anywhere near this point without attempting to calm the storm. He’s a bigot, and in turn, has made large section of the public show their true colors and I see/hear it daily. That sucks.
- COVID: couldn’t have stopped it. But didn’t have to lie. In fact, I was convinced it would help him get re-elected. Coming anywhere near not screwing up his handling of it would’ve United the country against a common enemy, similar to a war. But he’s too dumb and egotistical for that. So he just held pressers and didn’t listen to the doctors/scientists. So, here we are, still can’t go to a restaurant and get a beer without ordering food in half the states.
