Thoughts on Trump's first term as President?
In Debate Topics

Anyone who can critically think and are not weak-minded predicted how dangerous he would be if elected. Consequently, he assumed office during one of the most unique periods of American history where competent leadership was needed. He was barely skating by prior to COVID, and his true lack of leadership has been magnified due to the pandemic. Additionally, his desire to divide the nation has spread like cancer in the U.S. and has also been magnified in recent weeks. What is most unbelievable is the notion that this is only what has occurred this year. His constant antics are used to divert the attention of American citizens from other acts of idiocy. Let us not forget that this President was impeached for asking a foreign nation to interfere in our elections. Although some may believe the impeachment is debatable and a"hoax," the American public will never be able to debate about it, because of the spineless Senate Republicans who refused to allow witnesses in his trial. Logically, it would make sense to have a trial with testimonies, but not in the age of Trump and his sheep in the House and Senate. Can you imagine the O.J. Simpson trial without any witnesses? Even those around Trump who have been prosecuted such as Roger Stone had witness testimonies. Additionally, we are talking about a man praises and befriends foreign dictators as the leader of the free world. He took credit for a successful economy and low unemployment rate that was driven by the Obama presidency and makes sure to downplay his predecessor at every chance he gets, thus, manipulating the weak-minded. He has put the United States at risk with his trigger-happy mentality and the need to politically flex for other world leaders. Ironically, his policies do not help the majority of his supporters which might be the most astonishing part about this whole presidency. He is a leech on their emotions and for some, their antiquated belief systems. Hate has never left the U.S., however, he was the key to open the box of letting hate be acceptable. As far as my thoughts on the first term are concerned, I do not believe America can survive a second term if it wants a chance to be the America that the nation and world needs. We were not perfect before, but we are heading towards the bottom and the further we sink, the less likely we will be able to come out of this dark cloud of hatred and tyranny.
