I voted for Donald Trump. He is not a perfect human being and neither am I. Show me one. As Jesus said, “Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone.”

Donald Trump was elected president four years ago. He came into office as a complete outsider to the Washington establishment. He immediately moved forward to: bring jobs back to America; significantly reduce unemployment, especially in minority groups; bring us the greatest improvement in GDP that we had seen in decades; stand face to face with despots who were trying to destroy America; bring parity of contributions to the United Nations and caused the Middle East to become more peaceful than it had been for many years. He approached his position with no thought of personal gain but with the interests of the citizens of the United States as his foremost agenda.

From day one, he was the nemesis of establishment Washington and for this he was hated by those in power. Since he was an outsider, they found it impossible to grant him credit for his many accomplishments.

Impeachment is the ultimate proof of their total disdain for an outsider who dared to come to Washington and shake up their normal way of doing things. I’m afraid that the USA will never be great again.

President Trump’s policies helped most every American. He created the most vigorous economy in decades, was building a wall to contain massive alien invasion, made the Middle East safer, handled a pandemic, and lowered taxes for most. He had to endure a continuous effort to remove him from office simply because he dared to win an election. Yes, he is flawed just like every one else. Now we see Biden tearing all,of these achievements apart. I hope those on the Left are happy.

Acquittal does not mean innocence of the charges!!

You can point to some positive things that Trump did, but he did think of his personal gain for many (if not most or all) of the things he did. America always been great and will continue to be so. Trump was a stain on America’s greatness. He embarrassed America in so many ways. His legacy is Jan 6, 2021 and the thousands of deceitful and fraudulent lies that he told American people.
