Donald Trump is continuing to divide this country even amid a pandemic that has Americans sheltering at home in hopes of flattening the coronavirus curve. The president, though, has been doing this for a long time, and he has a dedicated base.
At one of Trump’s last rallies, in Hershey, Pennsylvania, his rhetoric was particularly disturbing — and depressing. Right-wing evangelical Christians overwhelmingly support Trump because they believe he’ll bring on the end times. No matter what he says or does, they have backed him all the way — even if he calls for destroying our country, and that’s not just my opinion, it’s Trump’s too, apparently.
It’s important to remember what Trump is saying along the way to November, though.
Trump can use foul language, be seen on tape bragging about grabbing women by the pussy, lie daily, and the “Christians” on the right still have his back. During Trump’s PA rally, he suggested he needs more time in office, otherwise “we will destroy our country,” and not one of his followers blinked after his violent rhetoric.
“At stake in our present battle is the survival of the American nation itself,” he told the crowd. “We will destroy our country if these people get in.”

Now, even if you think he meant something else, he still signaled his base by using violent rhetoric. The stock market, which he touted at the rally, was doing better under former President Barack Obama, who also handed him an excellent economy. The younger generations will now have to pay down our debt while the wealthiest were made more wealthy. Also, he has made us a laughingstock on the world stage.
Obama pulled us out of a recession, then Trump rode his predecessor’s coattails and took all of the credit. Obama created more jobs, but not if you hear Trump’s version of events. Obama halved the deficit that he inherited. In contrast, Trump vowed when running for office that he would not just balance the budget but pay down the entire national debt, but he’s done the opposite.
I noted the aforementioned because Trump is already destroying our country financially, and while isolating us from our allies. After conservatives called Obama the antichrist for years, they then voted in the most morally bankrupt “president” this country has ever witnessed. And by the way, Obama didn’t bang porn stars, and the world never saw his wife naked. We can say the same of all of our past presidents, but not this one.
