Trump’s failure to win the presidency in 2020 was not his fault.
It was the result of a terrible campaign.
Trump won because he had no viable policies or ideas for governing that were effective enough to make a difference in the lives of ordinary Americans.
His political opponents were ineffective, and they were doing more harm than good.
That’s not a bad thing, as long as we are talking about the president of the United States.
Trump has been a disastrous president.
He’s done nothing to help people and has been incapable of doing any meaningful policymaking.
He has done nothing about the rising crime rates, the opioid crisis, the loss of jobs, or the worsening economic insecurity that have afflicted millions of Americans in the last decade.
He is the most polarizing president in American history.
His failure to address issues of economic and social justice is one of the worst examples of political pandering.
This was a mistake that he and his supporters made.
Trump should have been a better candidate than he was.
We should not have let him win the election in 2020.
Trump’s mistakes and failings have left a deep scar on our nation and our politics.
But it is our duty as Americans to take responsibility for the damage that he has caused and to move on from him.
Trump is the president we should have lost.
