JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: TRUMP DIDN’T CREATE THE DIVISIONS IN AMERICA – THEY ARE DEEP AND THEY WILL PERSIST UNLESS FUNDAMENTAL CHANGES ARE MADE WHICH BIDEN IS NOT FREE TO MAKE – TRUMP IS MORE A SYMPTOM OF THOSE DIVISIONS THAN A CAUSE, ALTHOUGH HE DID EVERYTHING HE COULD TO CONTRIBUTE TO THEM   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE ALEXANDER PANETTA IN CBC NEWS

Donald Trump gets no political obituary. He, and his legacy, aren’t done

“He polarized his country, changed it and has no plans to fade away”

America was already horribly divided before Trump.

Trump is more a symptom of that division than a cause, although he did everything he could to help it along, including massive tax cuts for the rich.

Biden will not be able to change that reality. He already told a group of very large donors, concerned about some progressive noises from the Democratic Party, that they needn’t worry, the status quo would be pretty much retained with a little wiggle room.

America spends a trillion dollars a year on its military and security to run its empire abroad while being the only advanced country with no national health system.

The scariest aspect about Trump is the fact that just about half of the country still voted for him after all his failures. There are a lot of desperate people out there in America, and they are not going away.
