    Yeah YEMEN and Palestine got a good taste of this mans “Hope”

    We’re still seeing his handiwork all over the globe with every child, babies and family that are slaughtered.

    Flint still has no water.

    Poverty is at an all time high thanks to his ‘jobs’ which pay jack sht but apparently having a job = job creation and not the actual specifics of what that jobs actually provides.

    More schools shut down, when they arent rotting. Privatization ie turning this country into a serf system of indentured slaves continues thanks to his 2x Wallstreet bail out, Trumps tax cuts and both of their banking deregulation.

    Oh and did you guys know this guy was dumping radiation into California? Its now in the air after the fires that starts only to get worse because under Obama he allowed fracking and gave the green light to big oil to drill baby drill raising the earth temperatures to what they are now.

    85k Yemeni babies and children have starved to death.

    This man is a sociopath, surrounded by narcissists and sycophants.

    BUT HEY HOPE EVERYBODY!

    The only HOPE he gave was by leaving. Heads up Obama…Libya is still listed as a failed State.
