In a matter of just two years and 47 days, Donald J. Trump, businessman, billionaire and the 45th president of the United States, has broken down or, dare I say, decimated the very sanctity of the position of our nation’s leader.

President Trump has crushed the integrity of this country to a fine and worthless dust, and the snake oil salesman our great leader is, continues to shovel that dust into the mouths of his worthy disciples one lie at a time.

The treachery of Donald Trump’s public political action is merely the tip of the iceberg of contempt that is his presidency, and to plead ignorance to our president’s wrongdoing is to contribute to the nullification of honorable and respectable politics in this country.

In a matter of two years and 47 days, Donald Trump has crushed the integrity of this country to a fine and worthless dust, and the snake oil salesman our great leader is, continues to shovel that dust into the mouths of his worthy disciples one lie at a time.”

Trump’s legacy as the force which halted constitutional American politics began before his presidential run even started. Dating back to the 1980’s, Trump has nearly 20 different accusations against him of sexual misconduct against women. From groping their genitals to kissing them without consent, our man in office has a history of getting a little too touchy with seemingly any female within his immediate vicinity.

This disgusting behavior has been described  by Donald as “totally false,” and Trump has referred to his accusers as “liars” in the midst of rallies and public events. These abhorrent allegations and the pitiful efforts to dismiss them have been nothing but one of many nails thus far in the coffin of Trump’s presidency, and the amount of women stepping forward against him continues to climb.

Another stain on President Trump’s record is one that insists upon not only the illegality of his campaign and presidency, but also of the nature of his minimalist sense of honor, political integrity and disloyalty to his own fundamental premises.

During his presidential campaign and tenure in office, Donald Trump has lied countless times to the American people, his business dealings, international relations and his overall political agenda are all encased deep within a shell of dishonesty stemming directly from the president himself.

In news as recent as February 27th, it has been revealed by Michael Cohen, most notably revered as Trump’s “fixer,” during congressional testimony, that Donald Trump has been a direct conspirator in instances of criminal wrongdoing.

Cohen brought claims of tax evasion to the floor yesterday during his hours long testifying against President Trump, claims that are likely to be much more heavily investigated going forward due to the nature of questioning from New York State Representative, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who, during Cohen’s testimony, addressed the secretive nature of Trump’s tax returns.

Donald Trump has, since his campaign in 2016, refused to present his official tax return documentation under the pretenses of an ongoing audit into such tax returns. While an IRS audit does not prohibit the public release of tax documents, President Trump is quoted as saying that, as of November of 2018, “I didn’t say it prevented me, I said lawyers will tell you not to do it.”

However, the IRS were not, and are still not, conducting an audit of Trump’s taxes. This was a lie. Despite Trump’s claims of being under audit during his campaign and presidency, Cohen presumes that President Trump was simply concerned with the nature of his tax returns and the possible information that could be obtained from such documents. Cohen, unable to obtain a copy of Trump’s supposed audit, stated very plainly during testimony, “I presume he is not under audit.”

Trump’s misdeeds do not end with his private matters however, they simply become much more tangible. In a single concrete declaration on February 15th, 2019, Donald Trump issued a state of emergency for the purpose of gaining funds to permit the construction of his proposed border wall, funds that congress refused to turn over. This act was a blatant and alarming abuse of power on behalf of our president.

To allow the institution of a state of emergency in the case of the border wall is to dispose of all aspects of a dignified and respectable legislative system. Donald Trump did not act under the fairness of the constitution and as such, this executive action should be overturned.

To allow the institution of a state of emergency in the case of the border wall is to dispose of all aspects of a dignified and respectable legislative system. ”

The scare tactics and fear mongering instilled into our nation by those in the highest positions of power are not rectified by entirely unconstitutional acts. Congress did not permit the funding for the border wall and the backlash seen in recent days only further solidifies that our president is acting upon the interest of himself and not that of our delegated officials, his own colleagues in office nor that of the american people.

Many Republican party officials have voiced their own negative opinions of this order from the president, further proving the disapproval of such action from all sides of politics. Republican senator Rand Paul of Kentucky stated in a recent speech that, “I can’t vote to give the president the power to spend money that hasn’t been appropriated by Congress.” this was followed up with, “We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn’t authorize it. If we take away those checks and balances, it’s a dangerous thing.” This is one clear indicator of Trump’s unconstitutional actions. Senator Paul is right, to take away the fundamental system of checks and balances is truly dangerous to the core values of the United States government.

Trump’s juvenile actions do not display the traits of a real american leader, but those of an impulsive, temperamental and weak minded man. His own party isn’t backing him, his opposition are fighting him and the nation is only further divided, Donald Trump has done the furthest thing from making America great again, Donald Trump has turned the American political body into, if I may pay homage to our great leader and his ever so eloquent wording, a real sh*thole.

Donald J. Trump: sexual predator, deceiver, and the 45th president of the United States, in less than 700 days will, as our history’s biggest political failure to date, leave the oval office and continue his life of luxury only to leave his mess for our next president to clean up.

    No politician acts on behalf of the American people anymore, democrat or republican. The government is just too big for its britches.

    I’m not going to argue about the majority of what this article is, because your mind won’t be changed and what I say will go through one ear and out the other. I will argue against the sexual assault allegations though. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty, you are criticizing a man for defending himself from an accusation. You are confirming that this happened, without any proof, just accusations.

    “President Trump has crushed the integrity of this country to a fine and worthless dust.” Integrity in politics is an oxymoron. This is the same country that Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon have served as president in.
    First step of the plan- Impeach trump.
    But then what? Complain about Mike Pence being president, and about how America should have stuck with Trump?
    Review your options, my man. Are you trying to form a better America, or continue to push a political agenda that has been forced down your throat the day you began watching the news?

    I don’t care what he does, if don’t make my family life harder so just give him a chance or not that’s your guys choice. 🙂

    to be honest Trump is doing a good job and this whole Russian collusion thing is just utter nonsense and just a hoax.

    All I heard were opinions. And it seems to me your very politically uneducated. I want you to edit this and give me facts. Not opinions. Trump isn’t racist. African American and Hispanic unemployment rates shattered the record low with Trump in office. Trump also housed and clothed several homeless African Americans. And I asked you what trump has lied about. I can’t recall anything. And I do lots of research. And I wonder why eagle eye approved this. Because this isn’t any interesting news. Because it’s fake news. People should stop listening to mainstream media because their minds are being wiped of real-world events. And FACTS! Facts are no longer with people like you. You try to pass your opinions on to others. I want you to watch the news once in a while. Not Bias news like CNN. Watch FOX. And watch Ben Shapiro. Then you will truly understand Trump is not the man you portrayed him to be in this article.

    crick, our opinions are what make a democracy

  13. Brandon Escala on April 4th, 2019 8:16 am

    @christian imler the first time Trump was introduced to the mainstream media, he was being sued for being racist during a housing project during the Nixon administration!!! Not to mention the fact that you just used the classic “I know a person of color’ defense. and you’re against politically bias news, yet you preach for people to watch a station that is known for being hard-right.

  14. ... on April 4th, 2019 8:25 am

    This is an editorial, it’s an opinion based article. *everyone in the comments* KnOw yOuR FaCtS!!! *Doesn’t know their facts*

  15. Nick on April 10th, 2019 2:09 pm

    The fact is, he won. He is our president. He didn’t cheat, Russians didn’t hack the system and give him more votes. He won. People wanted him over the other republican candidates and then people wanted him over Hillary Clinton.
    Also, doesn’t anyone know you’re not supposed to ask someone how much money they make. That is basically the same as asking for a tax return. Just saying. And if the IRS isn’t auditing him, then they obviously have some proof he pays taxes.

    If you want non-biased news read NPR. Also, Border control needs under control don’t illegally pass the border nor is it fair that you bypass the people that have been waiting to get their visas now for children you can get your daca.
