Trumpism: Tax Cuts Benefit Foreign Businesses, Women's Pay, And Waxing Bigot

Image result for trumpism

Trump policy and a devolving nation (under the leadership of a reality show celebrity who seems to want to be "leader for life." 

Leader for life, eh?  Let's take a quick look at Trumpism with the Brookings Institute as the foundation of the post.

The Trump/Ryan TCJA (Tax Cut and Jobs Act
Women compensation

Despite the white vote and the unexpected support from white women voters (couple with one-third of the voting population who did not vote), it appears women continue to lag well behind men with consideration of ear3end wages (compensation). 
Immigration And A Trump Henchman

Trump's henchman, John Kelly, has again shown why we should never assume attainment of rank in the US Military means the recipients of stellar character. Kelly as Chief of Staff (White House) consistently shows he has tendencies of a Paleozoic Era bigot who doesn't hesitate to tickle Trump's fancy via spew regressive jargon and "bigot speak." 

Early this past week, Kelly for some reason broke his pattern of lurking in the shadows via granting an interview with NPR’s “Morning Edition”.  A question about the Justice Department's policy of "zero tolerance" led to the following remarks. It should be noted in addition to other draconian measures, the policy calls for separation of children from parents deemed an illegal immigrant.
The vast majority of the people that move illegally into United States are not bad people. They're not criminals. They're not MS-13,” Kelly said in the interview. “But they're also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States, into our modern society. They're overwhelmingly rural people.” 
“In the countries they come from, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-grade educations are kind of the norm,” he continued. “They don't speak English; obviously that's a big thing. ... They don't integrate well, they don't have skills.”
He summed up his remarks with a false facade of empathy. His remarks about sympathizing with immigrant "reasoning" for wanting to come to the US..." the law as are the laws?"  To make the comments worse he spoke about the impossible without any regarding form the ages prover Murphy's Law.
Murphy's law is a popular adage that states that "things will go wrong in any given situation, if you give them a chance," or more commonly, "whatever can go wrong, will go wrong." A number of variants on the rule have been formulated, as have several corollaries.
 Kelly's said: (zero tolerance) “is a technique that no one hopes will be used extensively or for very long.”

One aspect of Kelly's remarks stand as words never before spoken publicly by a member of the White House Staff.  Yet, in this age of Trump, he felt most comfortable spewing insensitive and inaccurate remarks as if stand on a stage singing to Trump with a blaring karaoke machine. 
“In the countries they come from, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-grade educations are kind of the norm."
Brookings recently published the results of a study which addresses US immigration in a very detailed way.
Foreign-born immigrants from 2011-2015 have higher education levels than immigrants who entered the US prior to 2011.

Trumpism hands the wealthy and foreign investors a gold mine via the TCJA, women continue to lag regarding wages and a top henchman waxes bigot. 

Another Day in the Life!
