One of the key themes of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign has been that Washington, D.C., is broken and that he, as an outsider, is the only one who can actually fix it.
Trump’s famous “drain the swamp” slogan has resonated with millions of Americans who think our nation’s capital is in dire need of repair. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas seemed to agree with Trump on Wednesday during a speech he gave, The Hill reported.
“There’s always hope, but this city is broken in some ways,” Thomas said. “I’ve been here now most of my life and I think that we have become very comfortable with not thinking things through and debating things.”
That breakdown in communication in Washington is exactly what has fueled the rise of Trump. People are sick and tired of nothing getting done, at least nothing good, so they want a new leader who can actually accomplish great things.
“I think that we have decided that rather than confront the disagreement and differences of opinion, we’ll just simply annihilate the person who disagrees with us,” Thomas said.
Unfortunately he is exactly right. Both Republicans and Democrats are guilty of preferring to demonize their opponents rather than engaging in meaningful discussion.
This sort of polarization doesn’t help America. All it does is increase the frustration the American people have with Congress when they see nothing happening for years.
Trump has a history of making compromises and hammering out complex deals in the business world. Unlike Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, Trump has a history of making things work.
If Trump can bring about some real change in Washington, he can finally turn this country around.
