In the eyes of the world, we are inhumane, untrustworthy, selfish

“Make America Great Again”? Hah! The world considered Nazi Germany to be the “evil empire” when they locked up Jews in concentration camps. What does this say about Trump’s policy of separating families at the border, families fleeing drought, starvation, and violence, and locking the children up in cages?

Great Britain showed their greatness when, in support of their allies, the Poles, they declared war on Nazi Germany when Germany invaded Poland. So what has Trump done for our allies, the Kurds, who have been helping us fight ISIS? He turned them over to their enemies, the Turks.

As for the crisis that is global warming, while the rest of the world signed on to the Paris Climate Accords, Trump withdrew us. Not only that, he is taking us backwards, opening up our public lands to drilling and mining, rolling back the mileage standards for cars, and gutting the Endangered Species Act.

Does any of this make us “great”? No. In the eyes of the world, we are inhumane, untrustworthy, and selfish. So, at the election in November, please vote Trump and his “evil empire” out, and vote someone in who will be humane, trustworthy, and will work to mitigate global warming.
