If you admire the leadership of USA Donald Trump then you are deluded beyond believe.
President Trump promises he will “drain the swamp” if he’s reelected, but many of his appointees have lobbying or corporate ties.
Trump is draining our country of resources and decency.

WHAT DOES DRAIN THE SWAMP MEAN?
Drain the swamp is a metaphor that means to root out corruption. It’s often used in politics. Donald Trump did not coin it …
It’s also been found that the phrase was already in use before Mussolini helped form Italy’s Fascist Party in 1919. So there.
One of the earliest users was Victor L. Berger, a founding member of the Social Democratic Party of America. In a book called Capital Opinion, published in 1912, Berger wrote, “We should have to drain the swamp — change the capitalist system — if we want to get rid of those mosquitos.”
For three years, he’s taken no step toward lasting change. And matters are only going to get worse, if you’re a Trump fan who actually wants the swamp to be drained.
So pity the Trump supporters who want to drain the swamp. There is no prospect of their civic happiness. Insofar as their champion thrives politically, Washington, D.C., will grow only more corrupt. But if Trump is proved to have abused his power, the backlash may inspire reforms, as it did after Watergate. You can fight to drain the swamp or to defend Trump, but not both.
