The Unimaginable Happened…Trump Was Elected President — Here are the FACTS

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

ovaloffice1Many Electors and Americans believe Trump will be a disaster as president. His cabinet picks, refusal to attend daily briefings, or divest himself from his companies, continue to reinforce that idea. His involvement with his children as close government advisers while they run the business is wrong and possibly unconstitutional. We need to work as hard as we can to reach out to the Electoral College TODAY to work together to do what is right for every American. We can’t let bigotry, racism, sexism, xenophobia, misogyny, white supremacists and others affect the outcome of the 2016 election and the future of our country.

FACT: The election isn’t really over until Dec 19 when the Electoral College meets. If we can convince enough of the Electorates to vote for Clinton, who won the popular vote by more than 2.7 million votes, our country would have a stable and sane president that would save us from his dangerous views, and bring hope to those who aren’t in the 1%.

FACT: After the 2016 election is resolved, we need to dismantle the archaic Electoral College, or at least make their vote proportionate to the vote in each state, not winner take all .

FACT: Rather than praising NATO and our allies, Trump praises Putin. Does he want a dictator style of government and Putin is his role model? Does Trump have ties with Russia that will influence how he operates as President?

FACT: Trump refused to release his taxes. Why? Will these documents show he has paid no taxes? Will they show that he actually does not contribute to charities? Will they show he has substantial business and financial dealings with Russia and high-ranking Russians? How much does he owe to Russia and China?

FACT: He isn’t putting his businesses in a blind trust, but rather appointing his children to the helm while he is in office. By choosing this path, Trump can pass laws that are in his best interest, not the country’s. It is unprecedented for a president to do this.

FACT: FBI Director James Comey was wrong for reopening the Hillary Clinton email investigation 11 days out from the election. He had no evidence; it was a deliberate attempt to sway the election for the Republicans.

FACT: President Obama was wrong not to then release the evidence that Russia hacked our election to influence it in favor of Trump prior to the election. Why didn’t the FBI release this info instead of what they did on Clinton?

FACT: Trump University was a fraud and 3500 lawsuits are still pending by unpaid workers. Do we really want to pay for all of Donald’s bad conduct? Are the taxpayers the ones who will pay his legal bills for these suits?

FACT: He chose to use his Trump Foundation donors’ money to buy personal items and pay off legal bills, while contributing zero to the charity. Why isn’t this being investigated by the IRS or the DOJ?

FACT: He has no foreign or domestic governing experience. No Trump has served in the military, as Donald got numerous deferments. How can he be an effective Commander-in-Chief?

FACT: He, along with a GOP Congress and his big corporation cabinet selections, will cut taxes for the wealthy and social services for the elders, disabled, and needy, while driving up our country’s debt and deficit. His controversial cabinet will destroy our public schools, the EPA (our water, land, and air), our energy potential, and healthcare.

FACT: People are protesting peacefully for a different result—they want to protect the EPA, bank regulations, raising the minimum wage, public education, religious freedoms, voters’ rights, healthcare, and a fair Supreme Court.

FACT: Immigrants, minorities, and women are all under attack by Trump and his Alt-right campaign manager.

FACT: Women’s right to choice including Roe v. Wade will disappear, as will funding for Planned Parenthood. Same-sex marriage will no longer be legal, as well as the destruction of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

FACT: It is important to question whether we want an unstable, thinned-skinned person to have his finger on the nuclear code after saying he likes war and more countries should have nuclear weapons. Do we want a president that continually criticizes our world-class military and their covert operations, as he selects three generals to be in his cabinet?

FACT: Gerrymandering, voter ID laws, claims of fraud, voting site closures (868), suspension of early voting days, and abuse of legislature powers federally and statewide will intensify with no checks and balances by the judicial or executive branches under this administration.

FACT: Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, yet Americans don’t get the president they voted for…again! (In 2000 Bush v. Gore, Gore got more popular votes, but the Supreme Court gave Bush Florida, and the presidency.
