Trump's presidency is at its absolute lowest today

Trump’s truly deaf response to George Floyd’s death while in police custody in Minneapolis – especially the photo-op Trump holding a Bible outside the church of St. John in Washington – has been widely criticized, including by many former high-ranking White House officials. “Donald Trump is the first president of my life who has not tried to unite the American people – not even pretending to try,” said former Defense Secretary James Mattis earlier this month. “Instead he tried to divide us.”
Another former Trump administration official, national security adviser John Bolton, came out with his time memoir at the White House suggesting, among other things, that Trump sought help from the Chinese president in the 2020 re-election and appeared to be approved of the use of concentration camps by China. Bolton, in an interview with ABC News, said that Trump was not “suitable for the position” and did not have “competence to carry out the work.”
This series of body blows has ruined Trump’s chances of winning his second term. His the approval rating collapses over the past month in the Gallup poll. CNN’s latest national poll shows Trump trailing former Vice-President Joe Biden with 14 points. The state-swing poll shows the same gap widening between Biden and Trump.

Add it all and you get this: In the roller-coaster presidency, this is the lowest Trump ever.

And that even takes into account the impeachment! Why? Unlike his impeachment by the House of Representatives earlier this year, Trump’s actions over the past month (or more) have caused depreciation in his support rather than the effect of a rally between his headquarters.

It is too soon to declare Trump’s presidency over – there are still 138 days before the November election – but there is no question that he now faces a longer chance than before in his bid to win a second term.

As he often did when dealing with facts he didn’t like, Trump turned to lucrative outlets – and to Twitter – to try to create his own reality.

“If you look at the poll, we are far ahead of Joe who is sleepy in terms of enthusiasm,” Trump told Fox News Sean Hannity in a telephone interview Wednesday night. “Actually, we have enthusiasm that they have never seen before. And Joe has the lowest enthusiasm, I heard, recorded.” (Um, no.)
Regarding coronavirus, Trump said: “I don’t even like to talk about it, because it fades. It will fade.” (This week 10 countries reported the most number of corona virus cases since the pandemic began.)
After the Supreme Court’s DACA ruling on Thursday, Trump tweeted this:

“This terrible & politically charged decision issued by the Supreme Court is a firearm in the face of people who are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Judges or we will lose our 2nd. Amendments & others. Vote Trump 2020!”

He then added it in Next tweet: “Do you have the impression that the Supreme Court does not like me?” (Trump has appointed two Judges – Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Chief Justice John Roberts and Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito were also appointed by the Republican president.)

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal released Thursday afternoon, Trump seemed to take credit for drawing attention to Juneteenth, a memorial day to commemorate the official end of slavery in the United States.

“I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous,” Trump said. “Actually this is an important event, an important time. But no one has ever heard of it.” (Forty-seven states and the District of Columbia celebrate Juneteenth as a holiday.)

However, Trump’s retreat to alternative realities will not change the actual reality. No matter how many tweets he sent or how many adored fans he brought to the indoor arena in Tulsa on Saturday, the fact is this: Trump is not only confronted with the worst political views of his presidency but also faces signs of rebellion from within his own party and even among those he had relied on as trusted advisers.

Trump likes to insist that he does his best when all the turmoil around him and when people count them. Now is his chance to prove it – because digging a hole he made for himself will be a big task.

INE statistics show that families spend the most. The figures show that over 1.2 million tons of food was wasted by families this year, followed by catering with over 237 thousand tons, trade and distribution with 214 thousand tons, primary production with over 101 thousand tons and food . industry, about 61 thousand tons.

“We buy too much, we buy bad, we let it go bad. It is unacceptable that a third of what is produced ends up in the trash,” the official said, speaking at a debate organized by the United Movement Against Waste.

Ana Cristina Carrola of the Portuguese Environmental Protection Agency (APA), who also took part in the debate, stressed that the average amount of waste per year per inhabitant in the European Union is 173 kg, less than the 183 kg that is thrown away by the Portuguese.

“This is unthinkable in our day,” he lamented.
