Opinion: Please Stop Talking About Donald Trump. There Are Worse Things Happening

I’ve been following American politics since 2015.

Yes, I was fourteen years old. But it drew my interest with Donald Trump trying to become President.

But ever since it has become a big mess to be fair. Whenever I now open my news application or just any social media platform it’s just drama all the time. We’re in an eternally enduring cycle of crises.

And if that weren’t enough, we’ve got a former president keeping confidential documents at his house in Florida.

The FBI is now searching for nuclear weapon-related documents, sources say.

Attorney General Merrick Garland has been talking about the Mar-a-Lago raid for the past week as well and has dropped a statement again.

“The Department filed the motion to make public the warrant and receipt in light of the former president’s public confirmation of the search, the surrounding circumstances and the substantial public interest in this matter,” Garland said.
“Faithful adherence to the rule of law is the bedrock principle of the Justice Department and of our democracy. Upholding the rule of law means applying the law evenly without fear or favor. Under my watch, that is precisely what the Justice Department is doing.” he added.

The Justice Department really wants to figure out what’s going on inside those hidden boxes that Trump took from the national archive.

But realize that this, of course, diverts attention from the real issues. The whole country is in an uproar right now because Donald Trump is withholding classified documents but in the real world there are people who can no longer pay their bills, are being evicted from their homes, can’t find a home at all, or worse.

After suffering from the covid pandemic for more than two years, war broke out in Ukraine in February with all its consequences. Higher fuel prices, food shortages, and a gigantic stream of refugees through Europe while we can’t even house the wave of refugees from Africa and the Middle East together.

Now two new problems are looming in Monkeypox and threats from China thanks to a foolish move by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who decided to visit Taiwan while China was “severely discouraging” it. They even threatened to shoot her plane out of the sky.

And then we have a gigantic crisis of confidence in contemporary politics. Not just in the United States but all over the world. After all, Joe Biden doesn’t solve problems either. Inflation is rising through the roof and people are only getting poorer as the economy shrinks.

And finally, we’re talking about Donald Trump again. The man who disappeared from view two years ago. Many of us were was happy to see him disappear from the White House but we just can’t stop talking about him. Stop caring.
