aside Let Me Count The Ways Of How The President Turned His Back On His Followers

We already know that the republican President Donald Trump was ready to let down his followers with his recent backing of the republican’s repeal and replacement of Obamacare health care bill where 24 million peoples would have lost access to affordable healthcare insurance, and then there is his proposed tax cut plan which heavily favors the wealthy while exploding the deficit. But there are the many other executive orders that he has executed which also harm his hard working backers.

Here is a partial list of the president’s actions which have either harmed hard working folks or children:

Rollback of Mortgage Insurance Premium Savings

As per a 1/20/17 Reuters article by Sarah N. Lynch, “The Trump administration, hours after taking office on Friday, suspended a plan to cut mortgage insurance premiums on federally insured home loans that the U.S. government had estimated would save eligible homeowners an average of $500 a year.”

Rollback of EPA Climate Change Website for the Public

As per a 1/25/17 Reuters report by Valerie Volcovici, “U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to remove the climate change page from its website, two agency employees told Reuters, the latest move by the newly minted leadership to erase ex-President Barack Obama’s climate change initiatives.”

“The employees were notified by EPA officials on Tuesday that the administration had instructed EPA’s communications team to remove the website’s climate change page, which contains links to scientific global warming research, as well as detailed data on emissions.” (LAST DAY WAS 4/28/17.)

The Fiduciary Rule

As per a 2/3/17 Forbes article by Jamie Hopkins, “At about 1:30 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, February 3, 2017, President Donald Trump signed a memorandum to roll back the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule by asking the DOL to review the rule again and likely to delay its April 10th implementation. y put, the DOL fiduciary rule was designed to make sure that, if you hired a financial advisor to help with your retirement planning and assets, the financial advisor acted in your best interest, avoided conflicts of interest when possible, and was transparent with you about his or her compensation and fees. Many people are surprised to learn that such a rule does not already exist for financial advisors since financial advice, at its core, would appear only to be needed precisely to ensure the best interests of the consumer. ”

The transgender bathroom rule for children

As per the 2/22/17 Washington Post article by Sandhya Somashekhar, Emma Brown and Moriah Balingit, “The Trump administration on Wednesday revoked federal guidelines specifying that transgender students have the right to use public school restrooms that match their gender identity, taking a stand on a contentious issue that has become the central battle over LGBT rights.”

As per the 5/2/17 Hill report by Lydia Wheeler and Tim Devaney, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue took steps Monday to roll back healthy school lunch standards promoted by former first lady Michelle Obama in one of his first regulatory acts.

In an interim final rule, aimed at giving schools more flexibility, Perdue and his department are postponing new sodium reductions for at least three years and allowing schools to serve non-whole grain rich products occasionally as well as 1 percent flavored milk.

The rule allows states to exempt schools in the 2017-2018 school year from having to replace all their grains with whole-grain rich products if they are having a hard time meeting the standard.

  1. Gronda, he has done all that and more. His voters would be more affected by a repeal of the ACA and it looks like he is taking care of his wealthy friends with his tax plan. Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      We know he is adding monies to his coffers day by day. Besides catering to the alt-right, he is serving the needs of his own pocket book and that his wealthy friends with crumbs thrown in for the poor and middle class.

      Ciao, Gronda.


  2. DDT certainly could not fulfill his campaign promises b/c he never intended to. The man never formulated a fully complete, comprehensive plan on any issue, he never thinks anything through, operating on lies and juvenile soundbites, but i believe his followers are becoming disenchanted with his policies and sees through him now. I’m totally opposed to corporate bailouts!

    Blogger Lada Ray had expertly called out DDT after the election win and told his followers that he’s not what he seems, not fighting for the ppl, but trying to keep the status quo for the rich and powerful via tax cuts and corporate cronyism. Just look who he staffed his administration with… Goldman Sachs banksters, oil tycoons, Neocon warmongering Generals from the cold war era!

    He has certainly FILLED the swamp and now it’s overflowing!!!

    The healthy school lunch program had to be revised b/c kids were not eating healthy food and throwing it straight into trash, thus wasting food and money. Kids these days are hooked on junk food, what we need is nutrition classes along with fitness program. Perhaps Melania could fulfill her duties… but she’s above the little ppl to bother.


    • Dear 1EarthUnited,

      As a Mom whose children are grown, I recall joining my son for lunch in 1st grade because I was volunteering there where I witnessed first hand how bad the food was. Any thought about food being tastier should be thrown out the window.Ever since, I made his lunch each day.

      A healthy lunch can be tasty. What the republicans are saying has to do with talking points; lazy bureaucrats and big agricultural companies. We pay now, or we pay later with more obese children; increase in juvenile diabetes etc.

      But I am also a fan of nutrition classes; fitness programs; cooking and sewing classes, shop etc. One elementary school that I toured in Florida had its own organic garden tended in part by the students.

      As for DDT, he is getting richer by the day.

      Hugs, Gronda


  3. It was sad to see REAL PEOPLE–Barack and Michelle, and those beautiful young daughters–represent our nation for eirh (too short) years. The “girls” were only there,coming and going on family vacations, the Easter Egg Roll and Pardoning the Turkey. They are wonderful young ladies that any parents–or Mrs. Robinson–would want to have around them.

    • Dear Cheekos,

      They are sorely missed. DDT will never measure up. The Obama family made this country proud unless one was a racist at heart. Their decency, honorableness, realness and kind generosity is representative of everything DDT is not and all the money in the world can’t buy this.

      Hugs, Gronda
