Why so glum, Donald? You still hold the power; At holiday table, hold the divisiveness | Feedback

Lee Lucas writes that despite some midterm disappointment, President Trump can consolidate his control of government in 2019.

It seems like 2018 will not end in triumph for President Donald Trump, but will end in a mood of crisis. However, Republicans still control the U.S. Senate and the executive branch, and conservatives are a majority on the Supreme Court.

Next year, Trump can continue to consolidate his power in the bureaucracy and the judicial branch.

Trump needs to fire Robert Mueller and shut down the special counsel investigation into Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign’s possible connection. Trump should have fired Mueller, or had him fired, over the summer. Trump might have done better in the midterm elections if he had done so. He allowed himself to be harassed, which made him look weak in the people’s eyes. 

But, the economy is doing great. Hopefully the unemployment rate will continue to go down. If full employment is achieved, this will boost Trump’s political power. There’s much to do to continue to strengthen the nation.

The owners of the means of production do not want to achieve full employment because it will increase the cost of labor. Much of the elite college-educated class dislikes the American working class. 

The president should avoid talking to the media, which are also owned by an elite class that does not like him. Next year, he needs to continue to eliminate his opposition in the bureaucracy and put in his own people. For most administration appointments, there is nothing Congress can do about it.

Congress cannot accomplish anything at all. It is no longer a power factor in American politics.

At holiday table, hold the divisiveness

On November 22, we will celebrate Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for.

But, in these politically troubled times, there is tension throughout the country. No one takes responsibility for their actions. It’s easy to blame someone else. That is exactly what is happening.  

There is no good reason why this divisiveness should be tearing our country apart.

When you sit down at the Thanksgiving dinner table, say a prayer for all the people of our great country. We are “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

David M. Levin, Vineland
