Dismantling the Only Pro-Trump Arguments

By | September 21, 2020

Dismantling the only two pro-Trump arguments…

–“Trump is a great businessman. Biden will be bad for the economy.”…On what planet can someone say this with a straight face? The Bob Woodward interview proves that Trump knew the risks of Coronavirus and went ahead and downplayed it anyway. He is personally responsible for tanking the American economy with an awful unemployment rate, dozens of major retail bankruptcies (everything from Chuck E. Cheese to Brooks Brothers), shutdowns that have gone on longer than any other country because he refuses to show leadership and a coordinated federal response, not putting pressure on senate Republicans to approve a second stimulus, changing his mind daily on economic matters and coronavirus fighting methods, pumping bogus cures like hydroxychloroquine, and this is all the last six months. 

Even before Coronavirus, his economy was far from stable due to trade wars (that he eventually folded on), the most unpopular tax cut in American history, a battered retail sector (even before CV), and blasting his own Federal Reserve Chairman (Jerome Powell) that he appointed. Even with stocks, the sectors where he meddled most directly (agriculture, retail, manufacturing, and car companies not named Tesla) were all down and the stock market gains were largely tech companies that he had nothing to do with. 

–“Trump is for law and order. Biden will have chaos in the streets.”…Most of the clips Republicans have shown about a Biden dystopia are from Trump’s time in office. They seem very worried about BLM and anti-fa, but those groups have gotten nothing but bigger under Trump. Anti-fa exists as a reaction to Trump. During Obama, there were many protest groups (Occupy Wall Street, and even BLM itself), but they showed no penchant for rioting like they have during Trump’s last few months in office. 

Also, it’s a little strange that the “law and order” POTUS is at war with the FBI, has had the most indicted and jailed administration in history, been impeached for asking foreign governments for election help, refuses to release his taxes, has been sued 1,200 times in civil court (usually for cheating people), ran a Ponzi scheme during the 2016 campaign (Trump University), has had too many corruption scandals to even tally, has said he would not accept the results of this year’s election if he loses, tried to dismantle the Post Office so he could cheat his way into a second term, constantly sucks up to or idolizes America’s enemies while showing distrust of his own intelligence agencies, does not seem to actually know what the law is or does not care, thrives on chaos, bragged about obstruction of justice to Lester Holt, has encouraged his followers not to follow local laws like face masks, encourages militias, feeds off rioters or uses them for political gain, got Herman Cain killed by asking him not to wear a face mask during Tulsa rally, has encouraged violence or vigilantes on a dozen occasions, and may very well attempt to start a civil war when he loses reelection. 

There is no reason to vote for Trump…none.
