Republican Party no longer the GOP
I do not believe that what was once known as the Grand Old Party is the Republican party of today. It is now the Party of Trump. The GOP I remember stood for the ideals of individual liberty, free markets and a strong national defense. Donald Trump and the current Republicans in power have spawned a new movement known as Trumpism with different ideals.
Trump is infatuated and in love with Vladimir Putin and Kim Jung Un, and from his behavior, he favors an authoritarian form of government over democracy. There is evidence that Trump read Adolf Hitler’s book and could be inspired by it. This should horrify Americans who advocate individual liberty unless they are white supremacist supporters.
Trump’s tariff war with China has cost the American taxpayers billions of dollars to subsidize the farmers. What hypocrisy from one who profits from his hotels here and abroad.
Trump has taken money budgeted for military use so it can be diverted to build the wall that Mexico was to pay for, not to mention him threatening to pull out of NATO.
Americans should not trust Donald Trump and Republicans who would rather invite the Russians to interfere with our democratic elections instead of doing what it takes to stop them. Trumpism isn’t the way to keep America great but a way to bring its downfall.
