Democratic Presidential hopeful and all-around California businessman Tom Steyer poured out his campaign speech Wednesday evening to an appreciative crowd in Carson City claiming that Donald Trump is toxic and largely out of control. Steyer, who is still running for the presidency, but at the back of the pack of candidates, says President Donald Trump is a crook, and a stupid one at that. Steyer went on to call Trump a racist, sexual predator, a failed, if not fake businessman, who went broke trying to transform his casinos into cash machines. Steyer said that Trump still won’t let Americans see his tax returns. And while he gives away a trillion dollars to America’s already wealthy through tax breaks, he’s threatening to cut to Medicare. Medicaid and Social Security.
Steyer says the American economy is working mainly for the already wealthy, and that it’s time to fight back. If elected president Steyer said he’d immediately work to create a very large tax on the wealthy and he would enhance world trade instead of stifling it, Steyer said a fair wage for the average American working family should be $22 an hour, at least. Steyer said he would work to give Americans a choice on their health care by providing either Medicare for all or a public option that would allow citizens to keep their private insurance if that’s what they want.
Steyer also pointed out that two out of the last five presidential elections have been determined by Gerrymandering where congressional district boundaries have been manipulated by political parties within some states – enough to get their candidate elected even if they did not carry the state with the popular vote. He mentioned that in the last election candidate Hillary Clinton got over 3-million more votes that Trump, yet Trump won the election anyway because the Electoral College voted for Trump….not the winner of the popular vote.
Steyer said if elected, he would partner with the American people in rebuilding our inter-state highway system, our schools, water and sewer systems and make college affordable for our young people who are falling farther and farther behind other students in other countries. Steyer said America is in dire need of truly affordable housing, but they’re not getting it.
Steyer is a billionaire and he obviously doesn’t mind spending millions of his own dollars on his own campaign. Steyers is running way-in-the-back of the pack. Right now leading that pack is Bernie Sanders followed by Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobachar, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.
