“Great” -Answering to Trump’s first speech as the president

<<great>>; adjective that describes amount, size, degree, importance or superiority

“We share one heart, one home and one glorious destiny.”

You say we are transfering power from Washington D.C. and giving it back to us “the people”. You say this moment belongs to all of us, the people, that this is our country and that it should be controlled by us, the people.

“We are one nation, and your pain is our pain, your dreams are our dreams and your success will be our success.” 

But who exactly do you mean with “the people”, if you hate at least half of America’s population?


“From this day forward a new vision will govern our land, from this day forward it is only going to be America first, America first”

But how are we supposed to follow your two simple rules; “buy American and hire American” if everything nowadays is made in three-world countries because businessmen like YOU don’t want to spend money on raw materials? 

How are inmigrants supposed to be “stealing our companies and destroying our jobs” if, under the conditions they mostly work, no American would like to be hired for those?


“We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries” 

How do you want to “unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism” if you are completely isolating your country?

When are you going to understand that, today, in the 21st Century, nations aren’t supposed to “put their own interests first”, but instead have to work TOGETHER so the world is a more balanced place?


“I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never ever let you down”
 

What fight exactly are we taking part in? What do you want to win, “to win like never before”? What are we even supossed to be “totally unstoppable” for if the only one who wants to fight is YOU?

“We will make America great again” “We will not fail”

Oh so, compared to the countries all over the world, it isn’t already great? It isn’t already the most important Great Power?

“We will make America great again” “Our country will thrive and prosper again”

What is “again” supposed to mean? When was it better than now?

“We will make America great again” 

Says the man that wants to ban inmigrants from a country MADE by inmigrants. 

The world needs less walls and more bridges.


“We will make America great again” 

You know what? Hitler, the man who’s responsible for the death of more than 11million innocent people and for wasting $68.000.000.000 in six years for that purpose, he wanted to make Germany great again as well.

You are using racism to rise to power just like him. You are proposing mass deportations. You think Muslims should wear special ID’s, just as Hitler made Jews do. And you are blaming inmigrants for America’s problems, just as he blamed Jews for Germany’s problems. 

“Together we will make America strong again. We will make America weatlhy again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And yes, together we will make America great again”

I’m sorry, but with racism, sexism, homophobia, self-interest, prejudice and hate leading the country, I truly doubt it.
