In other words, he supports workplace violence; loss of public lands; uranium mining near the Grand Canyon; limited reporting on campaign aid offers from non-Americans; moving military funds to the southern border for a wall that experts say will not be a deterrent; requiring arbitration for workplace disputes, even though arbitration almost always favors corporations over workers and customers; drilling off our coast; keeping the minimum wage lower than what’s necessary to make a living; racist remarks in certain situations; no humanitarian aid at our border, one assumes even for children separated from parents; a path to deportation of DACA recipients; limiting disaster relief following natural tragedies; messing up the Affordable Care Act, thereby depriving millions of access to decent health insurance; ignoring climate change; altering internet access to favor the rich; limiting access to voting; and eliminating gun regulation of even the most minimal kind.
