Trump's election turns mirror on our country

I continue to be baffled at how some Americans can continue to support Donald Trump. I understand wanting to clean out Washington, hoping that he’d be the man to do the job. I understand voting for Trump because you just couldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton. And I understand voting for Trump because you saw him as an astute business man.

However, 200 days into his presidency, we have become more divided as a country, we are seeing the rise of hate groups and neo-Nazis, deportation has become inhumane, and protections put in place to support and protect the environment are all falling by the way-side. These are not coincidences, folks. These are the direct result of our leadership in Washington, and it is not making America great again! We are becoming the laughing stock of the world, thanks directly to President Trump. He has proven himself to be amoral, egotistical, arrogant, and without dignity or integrity.

Perhaps we need to put a mirror up to ourselves as a country, and finally face what we are becoming. Thank you for that, Donald Trump voters.
