Trump's attempts to demolish the USA (and the world)

edited January 25 in Politics and Society
Here are some things that Donald Trump is doing to help wreck the environment, the USA, and the world - up to his first four days in office:
  1. Nominating science-deniers and corporations (or their proxies) to Cabinet positions (like in charge of the EPA)
  2. Nominating an anti-education person to head up education (keep the plebs ignorant)
  3. Approving the Keystone and Dakota oil pipelines
  4. Silencing (not merely censoring) science and environmental organisations: National Parks, EPA, Department of Agriculture etc
The Department of Agriculture is not even allowed to promote its published research. This, together with his isolationist stance and wanting to bring in high tariffs, will not be good for US farmers and the US agricultural sector. (It will probably help the agriculture sectors in Australia, South America and South Africa, though.)

Trump is not just wanting to build a wall to keep out Mexicans and refugees from the Middle East, he is effectively wanting to build a wall to cut off the USA from the rest of the world. 

He is brow-beating US and international corporations. I wonder which will buck him, and which will be spineless and kow tow to him?

He and his band of old men has just signed the Gag order to kill not just women, but that will deprive needy people of services offered by NGOs around the world.

He also took on the mantle of a dictator, in a gross imitation of North Korea, formally declared his inauration day as "National Day of Patriotic Devotion" - can you believe it? If not, the evidence is here on the Federal Register.

It's reported that he's cut off any means of the public communicating with the White House, too.

One slim ray of hope is that Trump set a new record as the most unpopular President on inauguration.

BTW - the No. 1 best seller in Contemporary Literary Fiction on Amazon today, is George Orwell's 1984 (archived here):



What else have Donald Trump and his henchmen (and a couple of henchwomen) done lately?
