60% of Americans Want Trump Sued For 'National Emergency'

60% of Americans Want Trump Sued For ‘National Emergency’
Americans overwhelmingly disagree with Trump’s fake national emergency, and they want him sued for his actions.

Americans Hate The Wall and Trump’s ‘National Emergency’

According to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll:
–61 percent disapprove, 36 percent approve Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall along the U.S.- Mexico border. (85 percent of Republicans approve, 84 percent of Democrats disapprove, 63 percent of independents disapprove)

–60 percent think his decision should be challenged in the courts, including 60 percent of independents

–58 percent do not think there is a national emergency at the border. (84 percent of Republicans and 90 percent of Trump supporters think there is. Democrats and independents don’t.)

–57 percent think Trump is misusing his presidential power. (89 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of independents think he is, while 80 percent of Republicans don’t).

The ‘National Emergency’ Is All About Trump’s Base

Trump said during his rambling Rose Garden announcement on February 15 that the declaration of a ‘national emergency’ to get his wall had nothing to do with keeping a campaign promise to his supporters, but the poll shows that decision was all about pleasing his base. Donald Trump is really bad at electoral math because instead of taking actions that could expand the pool of voters who might support him in 2020, this president has chosen to appeal only to the 36%-38% of the electorate that makes up his base of support.

In a two-candidate 2020 general election, Trump won’t be able to win with 36% of the vote.

Republicans have been warning Trump about this reality, but he refuses to listen.

The NPR/PBS/Marist poll says it all. 60% is against this president. Every action he takes only serves to dig the hole deeper. By appealing only to his base, Trump is losing ground for 2020, as a president who governs for only some of the people is destined to fail.

2. A friend posted something mocking on Facebook

One of his friends tried the "whatabout" game, completely misspelling Pelosi's name, and why did she go off on vacation during the government shutdown, and everybody needs to get to work.

I looked up this alleged vacation that Pelosi took. It was during the Christmas break, and she went to Hawaii with her family.* I responded to the knucklehead asking why it was up to the House Minority Leader (which is what Pelosi was at the end of last year) to clean up the mess the Trump, McConnell, and Ryan had made? The House was in recess and as the minority leader, Pelosi didn't have the power or the authority to call the House back into session.

No reply yet.

*Naturally, the Republicans and their water carriers in the media demanded to know if it was appropriate for Pelosi to be taking a break during the Christmas recess. Pelosi reminded them that she was in Hawaii, one of those there United States of America, and could have been back in Washington in a matter of hours if her presence was required. But it was still pretty scandalous for her to go on vacation. Because shut up, that's why.

4. 20+ Years Of Right Wing Propoganda

All those years of being glued to Fox “News” or listening to Limbaugh have changed the brains of millions. They believe in all those “Alternate Facts”. You cannot get through that I’ve tried.

I have the DVD from the History Channel about the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich in Germany. We are currently in the “rise” phase, we need to stop it ASAP.
