Trump-less America?

Brianna Lewis, Op-Ed Writer

Partial youth of America, lend me your ear. Today is the day you should turn your focus to the course this nation is about to take.

Well-known for the potential Russian scandal and apparent bigotry is none other than President Trump.
As many of us know, he may not have been the best candidate for president, but he’s definitely a great one for impeachment.

His most memorable acts of Trump philosophy include the infamous wall that “the Mexicans will pay for” and the Muslim ban put into place to “protect hard-working Americans.”

Not to mention his comments on the Charlottesville protests such as the following: “….you had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent.”

We’ve all witnessed or at least heard of Trump’s misogynistic and degrading statements, his familial background, his scandals, etc.

Even though these things continue occurring, I still don’t think he should be impeached.

Hear me out. I know he’s a tragic president, but what other options are we left with?

If he gets the boot, we get Pence. If you think Trump’s record is ridiculous, his vice president will blow you away.

Pence’s views on women and the way a household should be run have not really changed with society’s values.

Back in 1999, Pence wrote an article about not allowing women in the military after seeing Mulan with his children and posted it to a website he owned.

He claims that the movie was a tactic of a Disney worker to enforce a liberal mindset in the next generation.

As someone who has female friends and family members who are dreaming of going to or are already in the military, that’s not the personality of a high representative I’d like to have in the spotlight.

Trump’s more recent moves include one that really aggravates me: the DACA repeal.

We all know about his tendencies when it comes to basically any minority group, so while this was extremely disappointing, I can’t say that it was much of a shocker.

However, according to the Washington Times, immigration rates are down 46 percent since he’s been in office which tells a completely different story than the 28 percent increase when former President Obama was in office.

There are many areas of his job he isn’t qualified for, but there is still potential for him to improve within the next four years.

During his first few months in office, he’d passed more bills than any other president before him.
If he can get these irrational things passing, imagine what he could do if, one day, he decided to act for all of us.

Ronald A. Klain, former Democratic official, wrote an article about the one area Trump seems to find himself successful.

In said article, Klain states the following: “….President Trump is incompetent at countless aspects of his job….he is proving wildly successful in one respect: naming youthful, conservative nominees to the federal bench in record-setting numbers.”

Yes, some of them may be a little more conservative than a lot of us would like, but the key word here is “youthful”.

Let’s just hope Donnie has something worthwhile up his sleeve before we find ourselves in a predicament involving housewives and a president who feels victimized by an animation.
