Trump and his team have a very sketchy history with the media...and with good reason: he doesn't want you to know the real truth, he wants you to think his lies are the truth.
Want an example? How about his rally the other day in Harrisburg. Trump described the crowd as record-breaking for the arena. The truth is a little bit less than that. In fact, lots of empty seats. Trump doesn't want you to know he lied a bit there.
There's a lot of other things he'd rather you didn't know, but the bottom line that I'm afraid of is that Trump and his team are threatening to make freedom of the press a thing of the past.
Take away the ability for news outlets to tell us what's really going on, and we'll be forced to take Trump's word for it.
Combine this with the worrying tone of his ambitions, mix in a little self-delusion on the part of his supporters, a healthy dollop of family in the regime, and add a dash of repression of the press. Bake for 4 years, and you've got yourself a <fill in the blank here...'Republic', 'Secretariat', 'Democratic People's Republic', you get the idea>.
Clearly, after inviting Duarte to the White House, praising Putin, Trump is excited by the concept of being a strongman.
We should all be terrified by this. Trump has demonstrated he's not supporting the little guy, doesn't give two figs about delivering a good health plan for the voters, or any other nonsense. He simply wants to make rich folks richer.
If he muzzles the press, and disbands the judiciary, he and his sycophantic Congress will be unstoppable. They could stand to do real damage to the US and its way of life.
It's not too late. Again, I implore you, speak to your Congressman and Senator. Let them know that you want the government, and the President, to be thinking about you, NOT out to make a quick buck for himself and his friends.
