Time for Trump haters to put America First

Once again, President Donald Trump is being scapegoated for societal problems he didn't cause.

They've been trying to remove him since before he was sworn in, and every time they fail, they find another excuse – from the Russia-collusion hoax to Ukraine to the coronavirus to economic hardship from the shutdown to the murder of George Floyd to the subsequent mayhem in our cities.
