I'm waiting for those with true backbone to stand up and say "enough" to Trump! I'm not trying to offend. I don't believe most congressional Republicans agree with Trump. I believe they have their own agendas. I simply wonder how long they can "not" look in the mirror while this president tries to destroy America. Praising Putin is dangerous because there are many people that buy into this because of Trump's supposed "tough talk." He writes executive orders that may not be implemented because they have little or no basis constitutionally. I believe he attacks the press, as do his aides, with innuendo and alternative facts. He does this to destroy freedom of speech and freedom of press, so his words and Pence's agenda will be all we'll hear. Thank God for independent thinkers and those who have wisdom to know we're rapidly losing "our America"' to billionaires and hate at a time when we could be rebuilding America. I wonder how people can defend this man and his cohorts and deny our financial collapse when Bush was in office was due lack of regulatory power with big banking and dishonest executives and the Iraq war. Trump wants to reduce regulations that helped pull us out of the hole, he wants to reinstate golden parachutes for greedy companies who rob American workers and families. He has the most billionaires in cabinet posts of any president and he gleefully robbed working people. To those who voted for him, you gave him a pass to continue to do so! I could say people choose ignorance and they must have to give this man, and his personal code of ethics, the presidency. Or I can say this-is your hate more important than the lives of our people and decency? Well is it?
