Donald Trump was always about that very thing….
People voted FOR Joe Biden because they where tired ….
President Biden has not disappointed those who choose him…
And now the new American President is going on the road to sell his vision for American to as many people as he can reach….
NOT just those who voted for him…
Trump was not a successful president. But as a form of punishment, he was everything conservatives dreamed of, and they loved him for it.
Throughout his term in office, and even after his electoral defeat, Trump proclaimed to his admirers that he was all that stood between them and annihilation, cultivating a sense of existential dread among the conservative faithful. On January 6, the former president warned his supporters that “our country will be destroyed” if Joe Biden were allowed to take office, minutes before they went on to sack the Capitol building.
Whereas Trump entered office and immediately sought to use the power of the state to crush the rival party’s constituencies, Biden and the Democratic Party will be deploying that same power to ensure that Americans, regardless of partisan affiliation, will receive the necessary vaccines to contain the coronavirus pandemic, and have enough money to feed their families, stay in their homes, and keep their businesses afloat. The passage of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 symbolizes more than an ideological divergence on public policy; it reflects a radically different theory of governance. The Democrats are no saints, but they’ve come to believe that both the viability of their party and the sustainability of American democracy depend on their capacity to broaden their appeal to right-leaning voters. Trump wanted to punish his enemies; Biden must convince Trump supporters that he is not their enemy. Defeating Trump was but a battle; defeating Trumpism is the war….
Trump exploited many of the failures of American governance to fuel his rise; only a successful federal response to the coronavirus recession can seal Trump’s fall. The slow and uneven recovery from the 2008 financial crisis left widespread economic suffering. Trump responded by heaping blame on religious and ethnic minorities as the cause of America’s decline. Partisan polarization, combined with the American system’s structural bias toward sparsely populated states, allowed him to win the presidency without winning a majority of the votes. Republicans can cling to power with a smaller group of voters, by stoking their fears; Democrats can improve their future prospects only by winning over some of those Republican voters.
Biden’s rescue bill uses the state as an instrument of broad prosperity rather than as one of vengeance….
