How much damage has Donald Trump done to America ??

When this regime has finally departed (We hope soon), will we be able to look back and quantify the damage?

Does a good economy over-shadow all the problems our country is facing? What happens if there is a recession?

How much damage has been done to our relationships with our allies? Very few have any respect for our leaders and are very skeptical that America will ever return to its former self.

How much damage has been done to the soul of America? Outsiders see a country that has surrendered it principles and its leadership to others. They see a country that acts like a third-world country, with constant disregard for a free press and the rule of law. They see an outlaw country, coddling up to dictators like Kim in North Korea and Putin in Russia. They see a country holding children as prisoners on our southern border. They see fears and paranoia whipped up by a demagogic dictator-wanna-be.

How much damage has been done to our institutions and our Constitution? The rule of law is breaking down as we speak and the elected representatives do nothing but talk. They put their broken tooth under their pillows and wait for the tooth fairy. The next election will take care of everything, they tell themselves.

How much damage has been done to the psyche of our people? How do we repair the division and the hatred that has been cultivated by Donald Trump and his followers? Where do we go to get back what we have lost?

1. Incalculable

We won't know the full extent of the damage until Trump and his band of criminals and miscreants are gone. I believe there is so much shit they've enacted behind the scenes that we won't see how much he's diminished our country until we start to try to rebuild it.

Hopefully, there will be something to rebuild.

3. Don't think we will be able to now until we get rid of him and assess.

We should on that and worry about cleaning up his fascist sh(tshow after.


Near as I can tell the sane people are doing their best to stave what he is doing but the vote must be delivered to get rid of him.

4. We won't know all of the damages for years to come. The bad decisions he has made will have an

effect on our standing in the world long after we're gone. Our children and grandchildren will have to deal with his "legacy".

5. He has pushed every weak spot in the system and even

If he doesn't get to full-blown dictatorship, he has layed to groundwork for someone else (right, or left) to do the same.

That damage is incalculable.
