In school, at work and at home, when you tell a lie, what happens? Or what should happen? You lose trust. Now, please tell me why when Donald Trump tells an “alternative fact” (lie), people continue to support him?
I am a freshman in high school, and I can see there is something wrong here. This man, who is our president, should have lost all our trust. He says one thing, and when people start to question his words, he says he never said that. The problem is, his own words are archived on places such as Twitter and on recordings of TV interviews. It’s easy enough to see that they contradict each other. Even after the constant discrepancies, people still seem to trust in him and ignore the words he actually said in the first place.
I do not understand how people can deny the truth and still put their trust in him. If it were me, those same people would not only be disappointed in me, they’d hold me accountable for my actions. The golden rule should apply to our shameless leader, too.
