If you voted for Trump here are some ways he's conned you

Ben Mallicote

You voted for Trump because Clinton was going to be in Wall Street’s pocket. Trump wants to repeal Dodd-Frank and eliminate the Fiduciary Rule, letting Wall Street return to its pre-2008 ways.

You voted for Trump because of Clinton’s emails. The Trump administration is running its own private email server.

You voted for Trump because you thought the Clinton Foundation was “pay for play.” Trump has refused to wall off his businesses from his administration, and personally profits from payments from foreign governments.

You voted for Trump because of Clinton’s role in Benghazi. Trump ordered the Yemen raid without adequate intel, and tweeted about “FAKE NEWS” while Americans died as a result of his carelessness.

You voted for Trump because Clinton didn’t care about “the little guy.” Trump’s cabinet is full of billionaires, and he took away your health insurance so he could give them a multi-million-dollar tax break.

From what I've seen the fundamental motive of Trump voters was to end the Cheap Labor policies of the last decades: sending manufacturing overseas, allowing unchecked immigration, importing guest workers under a variety of visa programs, and opaque and disadvantageous trade pacts.

Cheap Labor has savaged the working class with decreased opportunity and lower wages and less freedom. It has led to a huge shift in wealth to the upper class as well as disorder, crime, and addiction across the country, particularly in urban areas. These policies were pushed by both the dems and the neocons.

Now why don't you post an article of how Hillary and Barack have conned THEIR voters???? That would be the fair thing to do.

Aye, hubert, let's rev up some wholesale accounting of the neoliberal con. Trump is strictly retail.

The Trump protests are fine, as far as they go, but the game will shift only when angry liberals invade the genteel corporate offices of shitbag Democrats like Pelosi, Schumer, Murray, and Kaine. Pelosi has to be the worst in Congress right now. Superannuated mediocrity on policy that routinely wins with 80% of vote. That's the takedown that needs to happen.
