Trump doesn’t know problems of average folks

President Trump thinks he is smarter than everyone, including people in the military. Remember the statement he made that the generals didn’t know how to defeat ISIS, but he did?

Trump claims to know what the American people need. He doesn’t have a clue. He has always had everything given to him by his parents: food, medical bills paid, nice home, college education, and one million dollars.

He has never had to worry about where the next meal was coming from, how to pay medical bills, keeping a roof over the family. He has never served in the military or done hard labor to earn a paycheck.

Now he and some people in Congress want to take away the health plan. It may need improvement, but it’s better than what we had. The president, people in Congress and people in high places and their families get their medical needs taken care of at no cost to them. The American taxpayers pay their bills.

I hope when election time comes, people remember who voted to take away their medical insurance.

Trump is always saying what a great American he is and work should go to the American people. When he built the Trump Tower, he used Chinese steel. We had U.S. steel available.

Trump and some people in Congress seem to have an obsession about President Obama. For many years, Trump claimed Obama was not born in the USA. Remember the speaker of the House before Paul Ryan saying, we will not pass anything as long as Obama is president?

Now when things go wrong, Trump blames Obama. I have never seen a president, Republican or Democrat, put this type of blame on the previous president.

It makes one wonder whether it is jealousy because Obama rose from nothing to become president. No one gave him one million dollars.
