Donald Trump has blamed nearly all of his failures on Democrats. Rather than admit he has failed to provide something he promised his supporters, he further divides the American people with his false accusations. MAGA fans not only believe this rubbish but they just love to parrot the president further spreading the blame. Here’s a complete list of everything Republicans have blamed on Democrats so far during the Trump era.
The Hurricane Maria Death Toll
When Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, Trump was useless. It took him a while to even realize that the beautiful island is a territory of the United States and that we’re responsible for sending them aid. After Trump threw them a few rolls of paper towels and gave himself a pat on the back, reports started to surface that the death toll was far higher than the numbers first indicated. It wasn’t long before Democrats were being blamed for creating these numbers just to make Trump look bad. Republicans seem to have forgotten that we don’t need to do anything to make the man look bad, he does a pretty good job at that on his own.
The Migrant Caravan
When thousands of migrants from Central America started walking to the United States in search of LEGAL asylum, Democrats were immediately blamed. Trump went out of his way to put Dems at fault, even saying that we want criminals in our country. Ummm, who in their right mind would actually want that Donald? Some things he said were, “Democrats believe our country should be a giant sanctuary city for criminal aliens,” “Democrats want to throw your borders wide open to criminals,” and “The Democrats don’t care that a flood of illegal immigration is going to bankrupt our country.”
The Death Of Anyone Murdered By An Immigrant
Every time a murder occurs at the hands of an illegal immigrant, Republicans blame Democrats. They don’t blame gun control laws or the predatory nature of men or even a poorly run system that forces migrants to wait months or years for a response to their requests for asylum. Nope, it’s all our fault. While there are many examples of this over the last few years, the most recent incident inspired an ad (above) developed by the Trump campaign that is being called inflammatory and racially charged.
The Separation Of Immigrant Families
Children are forgetting who their parents are after being separated into different immigration detention centers at the border, and it’s all our fault. Trump put this new policy into effect, but it’s the Democrats who are to blame. In a statement to reporters at the White House Trump said,
“The Democrats forced that law upon our nation. I hate it. I hate to see [the] separation of parents and children. The Democrats can come to us as they actually are in all fairness, we are talking to them, and they can change the whole border security. We need a wall. We need border security. We’ve got to get rid of catch and release.”
So, basically, Democrats are to blame for the separation because we won’t give in to Trump’s border wall demands. What a child!
The Government Shutdown
Another bullying tactic Trump likes to use is to blame Dems for the government shutdown, even going as far as calling it “Democrat Shutdowns.” The pressure isn’t working, nor are his lies about a 115-mile long contract for a section of the wall which was actually for repairs to existing sections of the border. Republicans are blaming Democrats for the effects of a government shutdown as well such as people temporarily being put out of work and going without pay.
When Trump wasn’t able to pass the bill on his poorly planned healthcare system, his first instinct was to blame Democrats for not being able to get the votes they needed. Republicans control the house, so either Trump doesn’t understand how our country’s government works, or he’s counting on the fact that his Twitter followers don’t. He wouldn’t have needed Democratic support to get the bill passed, and didn’t even reach out to them in an attempt to do so. Obviously, their plan just wasn’t well thought out, and instead of admitting this and fixing the problems, Trump will sit around just waiting for Obamacare to fail. Sounds like a great plan! Here’s exactly what he said about the situation:
“We had no Democrat support. They weren’t going to give us a single vote so it’s a very difficult thing to do. I’ve been saying for the last year and a half that the best thing we can do politically speaking is to let Obamacare explode—it’s exploding right now. … What would be really good is—when it explodes—if the Democrats got together with us and did a real health care bill. I’d be totally open to it. I think the losers are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Because now they own it—they own Obamacare. 100 percent. They own health care. This is not a Republican health care. This is not anything but a Democrat health care.”
Ask any Republican, and they’ll likely blame Democrats for any negative press about Trump or his policies. It’s all “fake news” designed to steer votes toward the left end of the political spectrum and get Trump impeached. Apparently, we’ll do anything to get Trump out of office, even if it means neglecting our journalistic duties and flat out lying. I must have missed the big meeting where all of the liberals and Democrats who work in the media came together and decided to neglect the truth when reporting on the news.
Dips In The Stock Market
It would seem that the anticipation of a House in Democratic hands has caused a dip in the stock market. At least, that’s what Republicans would like you to believe. The results of the midterm elections have Trump nervous as evidence of collusion continue to surface, leaving him with little to distract the public with. Blaming Dems for each and every dip in the stock market while threatening a recession might be enough to divert Republican attention for the time being, but the truth will catch up to him eventually.
