Ralph Nader's letter to Trump(1/14/2020)?
"Dear President Trump:
The disabling and dismantling of the federal health and safety agencies under your cruel command has been leaving a trail of American fatalities, injuries, and property destruction without precedent even among past Republican Administrations. Your criminal negligence toward federal agencies like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is an impeachable offense. You are obsessed with corporate profits, obeisant to the corporate CEOs funding your campaigns. You deliberately selected corrupt henchmen to run these lifesaving agencies into the ground, under the guise of “deregulation.”
Constitutional law scholars declare that refusing to “faithfully execute laws” was seen by our Founders to be a major impeachable violation, sufficient for removal from office by the Senate. Your failure to appoint capable leaders, for required Senate confirmation, to head life-saving federal agencies is abhorrent and violates the appointments clause of the Constitution, Article II: Section 2, Clause 2.
Nonetheless, the media has not caught up with the full scope of your lawless commercial drive to “Make America Dread Again...”

It isn't just Nader saying that. The majority of Americans are all saying the same thing. Trump is taking orders from the Republican senators who Trump claims are pressuring him to pass bills that will have a negative impact on most American families. Why-- so they can spend more money on their pet projects and another twenty-year Blood for Oil war.
Trump has added 1.4 trillion dollars to the national debt each year and has nothing to show for it. Trump claims that he spent money keeping America safe. That is BS.
Keep us out of war and out of the Middle East oil wars is keeping us safe. Now, he is cutting the programs that help the low wage earners and kicking the disabled off of disability. Trump cut the funds for SS and medicare. He has signed a bill removing 70% of the environmental protection. He passed laws that Moscow Mitch is demanding as if his life depends upon it. Moscow Mitch wants to put an end to social security, Medicare and Obamacare. This is something that the Republicans have tried to do for over twenty years. Moscow Mitch promised, on national television, "as long as Donald signs every bill he puts in front of him he will do whatever it takes to keep Trump in the oval office". Trump also is claiming that he was pressured by the same Republican to assassinate the Iranian General in a quid pro quo promising to fully exonerate him during the Senate trial.

The letter was 1/14/19, but it's still apt.

uh oh..... looks like we may have another candidate entering the ring to further dilute what little "message" has been able to emerge from the DNC primaries....

Well, none of that is true. What is true is that Trump is canceling Obama-era policies that were > designed < to strangle the USA's economy.

That the same Ralph Nader who called the Corvair "unsafe at any speed"?
Typical of left wing loonietoons. Made a living lying thru his teeth.
*** Notice all the "life saving fed agencies...." he mentions are nowhere to be found in the constitution.....(other than the 10th amendment)
