The Trump Administration is just one big colossal Potemkin

In politics and economics, a Potemkin village ... is any construction (literal or figurative) built solely to deceive others into thinking that a situation is better than it really is.

1. What are the odds somebody will build a wooden Potemkin-wall on the border to keep Trump happy?

2. Fits right in with the GOP.

The entire party nothing but one huge Potemkin facade. Welcome to the party, Donny!

What's behind the facade is nothing but pure evil.

3. The tRump campaign

for 2020 has already begun. Just today, i received two calls. One asked "Do you approve of the job president Trump is doing?" WHAT has he done, apart from insult everyone? The first caller asked if I intended to support him in 2020? I hung up on both. Then I read that they are gathering information on any democratic politician who is considering running against him in 2020. Hopefully, he will be behind bars long before then. He honestly believes he can "win" in 2020. He did not win this time, he was placed into office by Putin.
