|Trump's home planet.|
Trump claims he would have won the popular vote had 3,000,000 people not voted illegally. His own legal team disputes this 'alternative fact' yet Trump will not back down from his baseless assertion.
Tom Barrack, Jr., a friend of Trump, spoke on CNN about how the new president needs to let go of the campaign trail & start focusing his energy on governance. I say: Good luck with that!
If Trump can't not respond almost immediately to every perceived slight (-inaugural numbers, anyone?), then I don't see him retraining his gaze on more meaningful issues anytime soon.
And what he is honing in on does not bode well for many Americans. For all Trump's talk of helping all Americans and making us 'great again', he's already managed to begin targeting some of the more vulnerable among us within hours of taking office.
Mortgage Fee Cut
One of Trump's first executive orders inked makes it now impossible for low-income, first-time home buyers to receive a five hundred dollar annual reduction in mortgage fees. The mortgage reduction scheme, put forth by former President Obama, was to have come into effect Jan. 27.
Affordable Care Act
The Affordable Care Act, responsible for insuring tens of millions of Americans, is currently in the process of being dismantled by the new government. Many of Trump's supporters had not realized that their insurance provided compliments of the ACA is actually the so-called Obamacare they despise (Google: Trumpgrets). These same people are now seeing their 'fearless leader' acting directly against their hopes of remaining insured. The MAGA crowd say: Lock up Clinton & build that wall, but don't take away our ACA!
Unfortunately for them, it looks like the one thing Trump will actually act on is the one thing Trump supporters really don't want to come to pass.
