Trump promised that 2018 would be fantastic and as evidence, he offered the fact that 13 million Americans are going to be losing their health insurance.
Trump said, “We’re going to have a great year. We’re goIng to have a fantastic 2018. We’re off to a very good start, as you know, with the great tax cuts and ANWR and getting rid of the individual mandate, which is very, very unpopular, as you know. But we are going to have a tremendous year.”
The President went on to show just how out of touch he is with the struggles of people who have to work for a living by talking about the stock market. Trump bragged about his accomplishment for the year. All the things that he listed above came from the same piece of legislation that was negotiated behind closed doors and passed in a partisan fashion.
The President Of The United States seems to have no idea what is going on, but the fact that he thinks next year will be fantastic because people will be losing their healthcare suggests that he and 13 million people have very different ideas about what the word fantastic means.
