SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Former President Donald J. Trump arrived in New York today at approximately 2:27 PM EDT. After arriving at La Guardia airport, Trump jumped into a black SUV and travelled into Manhattan directly to Trump Tower.
Almost eight years ago, Trump announced his plans to run for the U.S. Presidency at the same hotel. A lot has changed since then and the world, if not the U.S., is a very different place from the time that Trump descended the Golden Escalator at Trump Tower.
During the Trump presidency, the people of the United States were divided. Brother fought against brother. Parents disowned children. And lifelong friends stopped talking to one another because they were unable to agree upon politics.
Hate. Violence. Trickery and greed were what we aspired to while Trump was in Office.
We, Americans lost a lot under Trump. Rather than leading the way, we decided that is was better to become a follower. We followed Trump on Twitter. We liked Trump on Facebook. For five years, we hung on every word that Trump uttered, allowing him to think for us rather than think for ourselves.
For many in the fly-over-states, they now listened to someone from New York. Someone, who probably laughed at the men’s accent behind their backs. Someone who saw an attractive woman and believed he could just, “grab them by the pu**y,” and do with them what he wanted, whenever he wanted.
When Trump told us that the American Dream was dead, many of us believed him. When Trump said that our military failed us and were unable to protect our borders, his words cut us to the quick and angered us. So we became Trump’s military.
Once upon a time, The United States was considered a melting pot. Immigrants found their way to the U.S. in search of freedom, life and liberty. Today, we don’t want immigrants coming into our country because Trump told us, “they are rapists and criminals,” he said, “they are not you.”
Who are we these days? What defines America and who are we? Is our best already past?
Tomorrow morning, the U.S. people are going to bear witness to our judicial system in action.
Tomorrow, we could begin the process of healing our country after the January 6, 2021 Insurrection. We could continue to heal after the deadly riot in Charlottesville. We can help one another after the meaningless murders of children and young people by disgruntled and disillusioned people. We could begin to stop the hate that has permeated our country since 2015.
Tomorrow will be the first time a former President of the United States will be indicted. Trump will probably be finger printed. His mugshot might be taken. We as Americans have a right to know what transpires tomorrow. We have a right to know, first-hand, what the truth is. Unbiased, nonpartisan, and unscripted.
For many Americans, tomorrow, April 4th, 2023, is the most important news day since 2001. Tomorrow and the days and weeks to come will define who we are as a country. Are we leaders or followers? Do we place the lives of our children and future generations in the hands of shysters and hucksters who would happily sell you the Brooklyn Bridge?
Our future bright and we have some much to give. So much potential. We just have to put the bad parts of our past behind us.
Starting tomorrow, let’s make American Great Again.
