…In 2017, Trump betrayed his own voters by giving the corporate rich a nearly two trillion dollar tax cut instead of fulfilling his promise to invest in repairing infrastructure and expanding well-paid job opportunities… (The cuts) benefited the Trump family…and were largely used to give executives bonuses and let CEOs waste money on stock buybacks. (More stock price manipulation like Elon Musk’s, like real estate price manipulation)…
Trump crushed health and safety law enforcement, unleashing more disease-producing corporate polluters and corporate thieves….The New York Times reported 98 lifesaving regulations were revoked, suspended, or simply replaced with weaker versions. What remains on the books is not enforced… Trump has worked to further punish student borrowers; diminish workplace and auto safety; and remove safeguards against banking, credit, and payday loan rackets…
Trump keeps giving (the rich/big corporations) no-law government, more loopholes for tax escapes ($170 billion more buried in the $2.2 trillion relief/bailout legislation), more corporatist judges to shut you down in the courtroom, and more of your taxes for their endless corporate welfare greed. Big companies… have so many tax escapes… that they’re moving toward tax-exempt status….
Trump’s agencies actually announced that they’re putting their law enforcers on the shelf. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) astonishingly told foreign importers of food and medicine that inspections overseas are suspended. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) signaled similar retreats… Trump is doing whatever he wants. He is getting away with abandoning the rule of law and the dismantling of crucial government institutions as he embraces American-style fascism and nepotism…
The people must stand up to this corrupt politician…

Electing Joe Biden, who is just as corrupt as Trump, won’t bring an end to corporate rule and lax enforcement of regulations on them. The whole power structure has to be changed, and that won’t happen with anything less than a successful general strike. And that’s if we’re lucky.
At least, I see no hope of getting necessary change solely through the electoral process.

Kicked and recommended! Trump’s a lawless asshole devoid of ethical considerations or compassion. He’s is precisely what we do not want in a leader in such a crisis.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

and for those who take a lot of medications, most of them aren’t made in the US, so this is murder. And, as trump poses as a china-hater sometimes, this benefits china — or rather, the lawless & criminal in the chinese production process — as well as benefiting US & european Pharmacorps who ship production overseas for increased profit.
(FDA) astonishingly told foreign importers of food and medicine that inspections overseas are suspended.
They’re all murderers.

of removing the Lawmakers in Congress who would continue to stop the reinstatement of these rules and regulations. This should be addressed at Town Hall meetings during the summer break all over America.
Its our turn to make a State of the Union address this summer.
