Every time I turn around, I discover some damage that Trump inflicted that I had not been aware of. One of the results is that President Biden doesn’t get the credit he deserves because so many of his achievements have been to undo some harm that Trump did.
According to websites that regularly ask me for a contribution, Trump’s worst sins have been encouraging Russian interference in our elections, threatening Ukraine to dig up dirt on his political opponents, cozying up to Kim Jung Un and other foreign adversaries, abandoning our closest allies, defunding the Post Office, proposing $30 billion in cuts to Social Security, caging migrant children at the border, attacking freedom of the press, building a racist border wall, inciting the January 6 capitol insurrection, threatening state officials to rig the 2020 election, imposing a transgender military ban, and denying the severity of COVID-19.
One of the worst offences Trump has been guilty of is his claim that the 2020 election was fraudulent. At the end of February, during the annual Conservative Political Action (CPAC) Conference, Trump repeated his claim and made at least 23 other immediately provable false claims. That continues his record. While president, he told 30,573 lies, all proven to be false statements, according to the Washington Post’s Fact Checker.
I am still astonished that Americans ever elected Trump to the presidency and am even more amazed that so many still support him. Their numbers are a testimony to the unreliability of the American population.
