When Donald Trump walks through doors of The White House in January, not only will he be forced to deal with the disastrous Obama Care debacle, he will discover a long road filled with many potholes that took place during Obama’s watch.
Some of the highlights:
Trump will discover this country spends $11,600 per year per student in education, yet despite this high dollar spending, America ranks 17th in reading, 19th in science, and 26th in math.
Trump will also find almost 95 million of Americans are on some form of government dependency and that expanded by 12 million people during the time Obama was in office.
Trump will discover one out of six young men between the ages of 18 – 34 are either in jail or living in their parent’s home and not working.
Trump will be sad to learn that while in office, Obama accumulated more debt for this country than all 43 presidents before him combined.
Trump will also find America’s foreign policy to be a joke; our borders to be exactly as he said they were when he was running for office – open and mostly unsecured; and in energy, Trump will learn America has enough natural resources that could fuel this country for generations to come, yet Obama never made that a priority.
The list of discoveries will be endless, and the mountain climbing will be very steep for Trump.
