We're hearing a lot about taxpayers being greatly disappointed with their tax refunds this year. That's because most remember very well what President Trump said in February 2018 that his proposed “tax plan will give Americans a Christmas present!” (Not so!)

And, when he said he'd “make America wealthy again,” he proved it by giving the wealthiest Americans this year the biggest reductions in the share of their income going to taxes. According to Steve Wamhoff, director of federal tax policy at the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy “the richest 1 percent are getting more than the bottom 60 percent of Americans.”

The fact that President Trump was born into a wealthy family and a recipient of millions of dollars from his parents, one might wonder why he continues to say he “was dealt a lot of bad hands.” (It's when he says he “wouldn't mind a little bow. In Japan, they bow. I love it.” I have to wonder if all that wealth he grew up with is what caused him to embrace this elitist attitude!)

He continues to give himself “an A+” score for his accomplishments. Yet there's little proof of any that actually benefits the typical American man, woman or child!

Having spent countless hours in the law library, I might agree that this country has laws that need correcting and when President Trump says, “we have the worst laws,” a closer look at them indicates that they're mostly benefiting him and his family!

I wholeheartedly agree with one thing he said about what a president should possess: “A president should have tremendous intelligence, smarts, cunning, strength and stamina.” Although he's implying he possesses those qualities, I truly don't see that he does.

Perhaps the Mueller Report should be revealed in its entirety so those who understand the law can explain it to the majority — in easy to understand English — so we can better understand why there is reason to doubt this man who calls himself  “this Nation's Greatest President!”
