Lack of accountability
President Trump is emerging as increasingly uncontrollable, unethical and impulsive during the current crisis. He recently allowed the Secretary of the Treasury, Steve Mnuchin, a $550 million purse, to spend without oversight or record. This situation is a major setback for American government which is built on accountability. The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, should act to put an end to this show of irresponsible government.
Choice of Treasury Secretary
Steve Mnuchin made his fortunes in California off foreclosed homes. Many feel that the people who lost these homes should instead have had government intervention to restructure, lower interest rate or extend the time needed to pay off the homes – some kind of life raft to those drowning financially. Mnuchin who benefited from the misfortunes of those ordinary Americans in California instead became our nation’s purse-holder.
The President has questionable judgment
By appointing Mnuchin to Treasury Secretary, Trump has demonstrated questionable judgement. In light of the nature of Mnuchin’s involvement in the California real estate saga why would he be trusted with such a major relief plan without a paper trail? This only further demonstrates that Trump judgement is questionable.
What Mnuchin should be busy with
I am quite certain that there are other Americans who agree that Mnuchin should instead be in legal battles dealing with what he has done in the past instead of handling our country’s purse. That he is not is unnerving and revolting.
Our choice of leaders
We should support candidates like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren who have demonstrated the willingness and outlined credible plans to fix this broken nation. Americans should sanction Trump in the next elections.
