Is Donald Trump Crushing the American Dream?

trumpAs you might already know, every day there’s something new coming out of Donald Trump’s mouth. When he announced that he was running for president, he caused a grand turmoil around the globe with his comments about Mexicans being rapists. Instead of apologizing, he has kept on insulting, and it seems like he isn’t going to put a halt to his verbal aggressions anytime soon.

Just last week he caused another turmoil with his ‘anchor babies’ comment, as well as stating that Americans need to accept lower wages in order for there not to be so many people unemployed. In case you were not aware, an innumerable number of companies are heading to countries where they don’t have to pay workers as much as they would have to pay workers in the United States.

Currently, they are dealing with a shortfall of no less than $3 billion, and they’ve been arguing over the budget for four months or more just to try to decide what to do about funding the day-to-day operations of the state government. There has been a difference of opinion between the Alaska Senate and the House regarding the amount that the budget could be cut without limiting the services provided to the residents of the state that currently total about 750,000.There are still some significant differences remaining at the forefront regarding amounts to be allocated for the restoring of state workers’ pay raises, as well as the funding of the marine-highway-system, state universities, and public education.
