Orange is the new POTUS

If Donald Duck Trump can write Tweets in english, I might  as well be able to write my first blog entry in english as well.
I’m still in shock. I still refuse to believe that a man like DJ Trump has been elected President of the United States of America. Usually I don’t care much about which papers have been signed by the President of the US of A and for the first time I visited the website of the White House. It scares me.

„The Trump administration is committed to energy policies that lower costs for hardworking Americans“ probably meaning hardworking Americans like him or very many other leaders of industrial companies since he wants to „maximize the use of American resources […]“ meaning oil.
„For too long, we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry. President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters  of the U.S. rule.“
In other words: make Americas industrial companies great again. And make the world (and America by the way) drown in pollution and contamination of any kind. Americans need to be able to afford the new car made in the US. Don’t give a damn if they die of cancer or any pollution caused disease in their new car. They won’t notice until it’s too late.

Water anyone? Clear water? Nah, sorry – out of clean water. Needed to dump some industrial waste.
Oh and lifting these restrictions will increase wages by more than $30 billion over the next 7 years. Mr. 6 times bancruptcy Trump is able to make such a long term calculation? Suppose he can, that’s 4.3 billion per year. The USA has a working population of about 150 million. I admit, he’s probably not talking about all of the 150 million working people – but if he were, we’d be talking $31 a year.  Okay, let’s be fair. Let’s say we’re talking about 1/4 of the working population, hell that’s what I call a raise! You won’t have clear water, you won’t have fresh air BUT you’ll be able to afford one more coffee at Starbucks once a week. Well, maybe not you, since you’re one of the 3/4 whose income won’t increase at all. Sorry.

I was determined to go through most of the pages of the White House’s website but I just can’t. All I see is a glorification of how great this 45th President is.
„As a lifelong job-creator and business man […]“
„With decades of deal-making, the President also understands how critical it is to negate the best possible trade deals for the United States […]“ (Glad no one before ever came up with that idea)
„By standing side-by-side with America’s workers and businesses, the President’s policies will unleash economic growth, create 25 million new jobs, and help Make America Great Again.“

Seriously?? Don’t get me wrong: the politicians in my country are no saints either and I’ll gladly accept any action taken by Donald J Trump to prove that he’s THE MAN but I’m pretty sure that’s not going to happen.

Live long and prosper, build your borders (need help? Germany has quite some experience concerning walls), keep on tweeting (first things first, then America first).

Best regards,
a german who has to deal with growing racism in his country. Again. And Donald, friend of Wladimir: you’re no help.
