During the 2016 presidential election, then-candidate Donald Trump unfurled his campaign slogan: Make America Great Again. Personally, I never bought into the ballyhoo surrounding this slogan.

For me, America has always been great. The ideals of America, those of freedom and liberty for all, have always shone bright around the world through even the darkest of strife.

Unfortunately, given the recent natural disasters which have befallen America and its citizens, it appears that not even President Donald Trump believes his own ballyhoo. If he did, he certainly would not be berating and castigating, the fine citizens of Puerto Rico during their time of need. Instead, he would be thinking of positive and creative ways for making this part of America strong again.
