Quote:As it is now, Trump has pretty much tainted the presidency for seemingly ALL of the future presidents (And he clearly doesn't care.). It's really going to be hard to come back from this one.
This last part of your post is missing two important things; Perspective, and support for your statement. I'll provide the first. I'm asking you to provide the second.
a) The Trail of Tears was carried out under President Andrew Jackson. Some estimates are as high as 8,500 people died as a result of this forced relocation. Countless others had their lives horribly ruined.
b) President FDR ordered the forced interment of American citizens of Japanese heritage into camps. Estimates are between 125,000 to 130,000 people were forced from their homes. Some were shot and killed when they resisted. Many others died from poor medical care.
Support for your statement:
You state that Trump has tainted the presidency for all future presidents. Please let me know what Donald Trump has done in his one year as president that has tainted the very role of the president itself for all future presidents ever. Called people names? Pushed for legislation you disagree with? You may despise him as a person (many do), and you may disagree with many of his policies, but to say that he has forever tainted the presidency for all future president to come is an extremely hard statement to provide evidence behind. Keeping in mind the two horrible events above, please let me know what Trump has done that is worse.
