If the current political polls are anywhere close to accurate, then Donald Trump will not be re-elected as president of the United States.
That news ought to echo loudly and positively around the world. Suffice to say, the quicker a real leader and a man who respects the office in which Trump currently holds is in place, the better.
One of Trump’s signature promises during the 2016 presidential election was to build a wall that, Trump promised, would prevent Mexicans and people from Central or South America from entering the U.S.
That idea was folly. However, Trump’s four years in the White House will be remembered for the walls he did build.
These walls don’t exist in the physical sense; however, if you look around the world, you’ll see evidence of the Trump Walls.
The U.S. has more coronavirus cases and more deaths from the vicious virus than any nation on earth. As a result, few nations want their people to enter the country, and those same nations have significantly restricted entry of U.S. citizens.
Trump has regularly blasted China, suggesting that Beijing rips off Washington at every opportunity. Opting for tariffs over meaningful talks, Trump has sealed off necessary talks between the world’s two leading economies and doing more damage to the U.S. than to China.
And, yes, there is a Trump Wall at home. When Judge Amy Coney Barrett joins the Supreme Court in the coming weeks, she will become the third conservative justice to join that august body. Mind you, there’s nothing wrong with conservative justices and conservative values, but these are justices who seem to have already determined that America’s social mores need to be shifted further to the right.
No, there is no physical Trump Wall anywhere around the world, but his small-minded thinking has created dangerous barriers to U.S. safety at home and abroad.
Let’s hope those current polls build a different wall: one that will keep Trump out of the White House after Jan. 20, 2021.
