    Default New Hampshire's 'Trumpgret'

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/trumps-ha...040439478.html

    MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) When Chad Johansen voted for Donald Trump in 2016, he hoped he was picking someone who could help small-business owners compete with bigger companies. But that hasn't happened, and now the 26-year-old owner of NH iPhone Repair feels what he calls "Trumpgret."

    The Republican president has done little to address health care issues for a small employer, he said, and the Manchester man remains on edge about how Trump's tariffs could affect his business, which employs fewer than 10 people. Beyond that, he said, unrelenting news about bigotry and racism in the Trump administration is "a turnoff."

    "The president's supposed to be the face of the United States of America," said Johansen, who voted for Democrat Barack Obama in 2012. "And supposed to make everyone be proud to be an American and stand up for everyone who is an American. And I don't feel that President Trump's doing that. I feel like it's chaos."

    If you want to “shake things up” or “stick it to the government” Trump is their guy. Promoting the general welfare has no immediate reward for those with power and Trump is all about immediate reward for his tribe, which sure as all hell isn’t middle America.

    IPhone repair - what you do when you can’t build sewers.
    A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative.

    Actually - I know a kid doing it part time & he makes pretty good money. Most of his business is replacing cracked screens.

    An idiot, pure and simple. Migod.

    Well, if he votes against our current president next time, he can stay. Otherwise, " send him back! ".

    everyone is allowed to make choices they regret. It's part of being human. To those who only knew the Donald through "the apprentice" and with how much free press he got during the campaign, he probably seemed a sane(r) choice than Hillary. To err is human, to own your mistakes and correct them is a sign of wisdom
