Political divisions accelerate, more Americans turning blind-eye

Political energy has surges with every amendment, protocol and Tweet that has emitted from President Donald Trump and his administration. 

Ever since the 2016 Presidential election, the quintessential question ‘is it wrong to separate President Trump from his political policies?’ has been wrestled with. 

With the undeniable division between Americans and the government, it is debated that regardless of which political side one could potentially identify with, injustice has been brewing. 

According to the Desert News, voters within the U.S. remain allies with the president due to the fact that he paints a picture of what a politician should be, and should even be considered a “moral exemplars.”

If we keep this in mind, our “moral exemplars” of a politician, the leader of the U.S. and one of the world’s leaders, is a man who claims a solution of wooing beautiful women, is grabbing them by the p***y. 

On behalf of the Desert News, a consensus among its Trump supporters claim that although the president is hired help, we shouldn’t care whether or not he’s the kind of person you want your daughter to date, given his job performance. 

There are a myriad of excerpts from Trump’s rhetoric, which convey overt sexism, racism and homophobia. 

Do we want this? Do we deserve this? 

The war of words that Trump has presented himself on has been present before he even took office, but it is time to come to terms that it is pointless to debate on whether Trump should  be able to use the rhetorical he did (and continues to use), but to grasp the fact that he does say statements like this. 

We need to take a step back and examine our inner moral compass and condemn President Donald Trump for the myriad of rhetorical attacks he has voiced. 

With this in mind, as impeachment proceedings have begun for Donald Trump, this is the time for the conservative-minded individuals of the country to examine why they believe Trump is above the law. 

Trump overtly stated that he “can do whatever he wants,” regarding abiding by the oaths he has sworn to as President. In result of his allusion of the direct correlation of his rights and the laws of the U.S.,  impeachment approval continues to climb. 

Yes, this is to be considered a victory; a shining light at the end of the tunnel, that is the Trump administration, but this also reveals the already known fact that the Republican members of the current administration are either blinded by their own politics to realize the corruption that lies within their leader, or choosing (and trying with great effort) to continue to separate Donnie from his approach of his Presidency. 

Is anyone else seeing a flaw in this? 

It’s no shock to anyone that we have a divided America, but in the end, Trump’s America is one of the most divided we’ve ever seen. 

At the end of the day, the composite of American people deserve not only a public servant, but a president to serve them in the entirety of their needs. 

According to the Pew Research Center, 53 percent of high schoolers and 58 percent of adults in America oppose building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, yet its creation is still in production. 

With this statistic alone, proves that the Trump administration is not acting as a public servants, the position they were voted in on. 

We must condemn him despite the economy. 

We must condemn him for the people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, women and children of which have been oppressed and silenced. 

We must condemn him for the lives that have been lost, under his presidency. 

Where is the morality? 

A rough estimate shows two-thirds of American Millennials disapproving of the overall Trump administration, while a mere 27 percent approve. 

With this data and the 220 House members who support Trump’s impeachment, shows that the U.S. is speculated to move in the right direction: in alliance with the left. 

As a nation, we are fed up. We should not consider a presidency with a 27 approval rate, a success, nor something to put up with. 

We deserve more.
