“Trump didn’t divide America. He just doused us with gasoline and fanned the flames”

DaShanne Stokes

When planning this article, I realized I had tons and tons of material to use. After all, Donald Trump is a never-ending, perpetual trench of nefariousness. It would have been practically impossible to point out all the terrible problems with the Presidentand that’s not being pickyI’m talking about the literal hundreds of devastatingly immoral issues associated with Mr. Trump. I like to split it up into two categories, the things he has said, and the things he has done (luckily we don’t know the things he is thinking). So let’s take a look: there was the time he said that“when Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists”. Or when he shot out, “if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her”. Yes, that too is very disturbing, but how about when he stammered, “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it, you can do anything. Grab them by the p***y, you can do anything”. These quotes speak for themselves, so let’s move on to his actions. The actions he has taken as President of the United States. He has fired the director of the FBI for failing to demonstrate personal loyalty to him, something that was very likely obstruction of justice. He pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, undermining international cooperation on climate change — and America’s credibility on the world stage — for no reason other than spite. The Paris Climate Agreement allows countries to set their own goals and regulations; Trump could have formulated the U.S. emissions targets to anything he wanted, even rewarding the coal industry, all without adding the U.S. to the world’s extremely short list of climate outcasts (Syria and Nicaragua). Equally problematic, the U.S. President found himself unable to assertively condemn white nationalists chanting Nazi slogans and celebrating white supremacist views in Charlottesville, instead mentioning, “I own a house in Charlottesville. Does anyone know I own a house in Charlottesville?”, and later on stating saying how there was “blame on both sides”. I’d love to go on and on, but anyone can google the outrageous things Donald Trump has said and done. What is key here is how he has split on the values that make us American. How he has taken the side of the ugliest bigotry and hatred. How he comes unhinged in a moments notice, spewing hate out of his mouth while his advisers rush to correct him. How he makes so many situations and so many of our nation’s divisions worse. I can say without hesitation, Donald Trump is one of the worst things to happen to America in modern history, and if you’re not speaking out, you’re on his side.

If you’re a true American, you’re pro-Trump. You may not support and adore him as a person. But, I believe that now, everyone should be Pro-President, and therefore Pro-Trump, because there are no other options. The people of this country exercised their right to vote and they elected Donald Trump as president. I am a Republican, I share their beliefs and values, therefore, I support who the republican party supports. I politically agree with Donald Trump on almost all of his political matters. This includes most of his policies, even those that are more controversial such as his immigration policies. I believe our current immigration policies are disorganized, ineffective, and create more problems than they solve. Redesigning the legislation surrounding immigration would definitely help our country progress as a whole. Even if I didn’t agree with him politically, I would still be pro-president. I am also an American citizen and the American people have chosen him to lead. I’m so grateful to live in a country where I have freedoms and liberties that many others are denied. Rights like the ability to write about politics in such a public fashion. He is actually doing what he said he would do. Secondly, He has kept his promises he made during the election process. Regardless of whether or not you agree, one has to recognize this important and somewhat impressive aspect of his presidency so far. He said he would clean out the FBI, and the cabinets, and he has. He said he would get rid of Obama Care, and he is. None of these actions he is taking should be too much of a surprise. Finally, he is doing his job without a salary and even sent some of his own personal funds to aid those affected by the hurricane in Texas. He is doing what he said he thought was best for America, and the population agreed to let him lead. Therefore, I will respect and support him so long as he keeps the laws written in the American constitution. In conclusion, I am Pro-Trump due to my political identity and the gratitude I have for being a citizen of the United States of America.
