Donald Trump may be the next president of the United States, largely thanks donning a baseball cap and marketing himself as the great defender of working Americans.

His concern for American workers couldn’t be phonier. He just recently acquired this concern at the start of his campaign in a miraculous vision while looking down on us from his gilded New York penthouse. It is Trump again just “Making the Deal,” this time with American voters and in particular rural white voters, saying whatever will scare us into voting for him. He has never in his life concerned himself with the well-being of workers or small-business owners in the manner he conducted business or used his great wealth. Instead he has hurt many, the result of his numerous bankruptcies in which contractors were not fully paid and their employees lost their jobs, all while Trump made more money.

When not funded by daddy, his real estate projects were heavily financed by taxpayers, in the form of government tax breaks. His business genius is limited to cultivating and using political contacts to get those subsidies. He is a modern-day robber baron.

How Trump has lived his life shows that he has no core personal values other than self adoration, self-promotion and being rich. It’s always about him. If elected, will he rename the country Trump Nation, like he does with his other real estate holdings?

Trump is unfit to be president of the United States. He will make the problems we face in the U.S. and around the world far worse than if any other candidate on the ballot is elected. The choices this election may be unpalatable, but at least let’s not do greater harm to ourselves by electing Trump.
