Quite simply, Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” is completely at odds with everything he has said and done.

Completely fabricating and inflating the cost of the contract to build a new Air Force One did major damage to a company’s trading value. That’s not making things great.

Constantly lobbying to end any criticism or satire about him is a direct attack on our First Amendment rights. Damaging the Constitution is not great at all.

Inviting a foreign power to engage in espionage just to help him get elected is anything but great.

Not setting up a blind trust, or divesting himself from his companies when he has business interests in over dozens of countries, virtually guarantees that he stands to financially benefit from even the smallest acts (such as staying in his Pennsylvania Ave hotel) into a violation of Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution. Not even a little great. 

I could go on for pages, but you get the gist. This man sold 49% of voters a large bottle of artificially sweetened snake oil. If we don’t stand up and speak loudly, clearly, and forcefully, we will most certainly lose more then our credibility with the world.
