There are many questions and concerns that are still swirling around the Robert Mueller investigation.

However, I would like to submit these documented facts for your consideration: Donald Trump promised to eliminate the budget and trade deficit. The federal budget deficit, in February, was $234 billion, the largest on record. The trade deficit, in 2018, set its own record at $891 billion. In 10 years his tax cut will increase the budget deficit by $2 trillion, unless Democrats take control of the presidency in 2020.

Trump wanted to try destroying Obamacare again, but heeded warnings from Republicans about doing it during campaign season. Had Trump been successful, “twenty million Americans” would have lost their healthcare. Trump has absolutely no plans, of any type, to replace Obamacare. Trump said, “Vote (on Obamacare) will be taken right after election when Republicans hold the Senate and win back the House.”

Trump has cancelled future sanctions on North Korea and curiously claims he “fell in love” with Kim Jong-un, who is developing atom bomb armed missiles that will be able to vaporize American cities.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal has “legally” requested the IRS release six years of Trump’s tax returns. Trump continues to “shamefully undermine American tax law, and urges defiance of the law,” by fighting it. What is in Trump’s financial and business life that he doesn’t want us to be aware of? President Barack Obama always released his taxes, even when they were being audited.

Those of us living outside the “Fox News Bubble” know that eligible Republicans have their monthly Social Security payments electronically deposited into their bank accounts and have Medicare pay their medical expenses and yet these same people hate the Democratic Party, the very party that gave them these important benefits.
