    Destroying America
    Whoever says Trump is doing a fine jobs needs to get their head out of the sand. He has done nothing but destroy America in these 100 days. If we don’t get him out of there, we are having nothing left. He is taking everything away from the ones who need it and giving it all to the ones that are millionaires and don’t need anything. I don’t understand what in the world people keep staying behind something like that. Everybody knows this was a stolen election.
