This isn’t the first time America has faced a deadly plague, or an economic depression. And it’s far from the first time America has faced racist police brutality or civil unrest. Most of the problems we’re seeing right now are old problems, cyclical problems, and omnipresent problems. Yet they all have one common theme: they’ve been made drastically worse, and in many instances intentionally worse, by the mere presence of Donald Trump.

We all know this pandemic wouldn’t have been nearly as bad in the United States – and might have been over by now – if the ever incompetent Trump weren’t in charge of the response. The same goes for the economic collapse that happened as a result of the pandemic. And while racism has been around since long before Trump took over, and since long before Trump was even born, we all know that this current difficult situation is being made even worse by the ways in which he’s inflaming it.

There are no easy solutions to most of America’s biggest and longest-lasting problems, which is why most of them haven’t been solved. But when you look at every problem that America is currently facing, the reality is that we won’t be in a position to even try to solve any of them until Trump is gone.

Donald Trump is single handedly making everything in America worse. That’s because he’s a uniquely toxic presence whose only tactic is to pit us against each other for his own purposes. Fortunately, most Americans now seem to have figured out that our biggest problem right now is Trump himself. The only solution in all this is to remove him in November, emphatically and overwhelmingly, in a full scale rejection of the divisiveness that he stands for. Then and only then can we start to make progress on the larger longstanding issues that we’ve always struggled to overcome.
