Welcome to the Trump Counterpoints blog. This blog is dedicated to offering alternatives to the Trump version of reality.

Trump is now in a position of extreme power and influence over executive actions and public policy. Because of this power and influence and because his reality and actions are constrained by facts and evidence only when convenient, my objectives are:

  • when appropriate expose the false claims of fact and the illogic that underlie his statements, executive actions/orders and policy directions
  • provide alternative points of view and support those views with evidence, facts and logic
  • Promote discussion of the directions that Trump may be taking us.

I have worked in economics and public policy most of my life and find Donald Trump’s temperament and lack of constraint terrifying.
