On 01/28/18, Mike Miller said the following...

MM> Hello Gregory!
MM> Based upon numbers counted by the National Park service. And numbers
MM> reported by Fox News, Reuters, The Associated Press, and every other
MM> media outlet.

It's not the size of the stick, it's how you use it that counts.
The Trump Administration has accomplished many things of greatness to date.


MM> Trump's very words spread hatred and intolerance. He is the great
MM> divider.

Great divider? lets examine that a bit more closely shall we?
Using his own words ..

"Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush,
President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to
rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many,
many years to come. We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But
we will get the job done.

Every four years we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and
peaceful transfer of power. And we are grateful to President Obama and first
lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition.

They have been magnificent. Thank you.

Today's ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are
not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one
party to another , but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and
giving it back to you, the people.

For too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of
government while the people have bore the cost. Washington flourished, but
the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs
left and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.
Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been
your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was
little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is
your moment.

It belongs to you. It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone
watching all across America.

This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of
America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether
our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the
rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.
Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become
part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen
before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists
to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe
neighborhoods for their families and good jobs for themselves.

These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous
public. But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists.

Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out
factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation.

An education system flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful
students deprived of all knowledge.

And the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and
robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage
stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation, and their pain is our pain.

Their dreams are our dreams, and their success will be our success. We share
one heart, one home and one glorious destiny.

The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

For many decades we've enriched foreign industry at the expense of American
industry, subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the
very sad depletion of our military.

We've defended other nations' borders while refusing to defend our own. And
we've spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America's
infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. We've made other
countries rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has
dissipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores with not even a
thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left
behind.

The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then
redistributed all across the world. But that is the past, and now we are
looking only to the future.

But that is the past and now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city,
in every foreign capital and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a
new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it's going to be only
America first -- America first.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be
made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our
borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our
companies and destroying our jobs.

Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you
with every breath in my body. And I will never, ever let you down.

America will start winning again, winning like never before.

We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring
back our wealth, and we will bring back our dreams. We will build new roads
and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our
wonderful nation. We will get our people off of welfare and back to work
rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor. We will follow
two simple rules -- buy American and hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world.

But we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to
put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on
anyone but rather let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to
follow.

We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones. And unite the civilized
world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely
from the face of the earth.

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United
States of America and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover
our loyalty to each other. When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no
room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God's people live
together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreement
honestly but always
pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

There should be no fear. We are protected, and we will always be protected.
We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law
enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand
that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer
accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but
never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can
match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our
country will thrive and prosper again. We stand at the birth of a new
millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from
the miseries of disease and to harness the energies, industries and
technologies of tomorrow. A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our
sights and heal our divisions. It’s time to remember that old wisdom our
soldiers will never forget -- that whether we are black or brown or white, we
all bleed the same red blood of patriots.

We all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great
American flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept
plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart
with the same dreams and they are infused with the breath of life by the same
Almighty Creator.

So to all Americans in every city near and far, small and large, from
mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words -- you will never
be ignored again.

Your voice, your hopes and your dreams will define our American destiny. And
your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.
Together, we will make America strong again. We will make America wealthy
again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And
yes, together, we will make America great again. Thank you, God bless you, and
God bless America. Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America.

Does that sound like a divider to you?
