America's Trivial Pursuit of Political Trivialities Extends Much Further Back - President Trump Merely Revealed How Bad

in response to reader comment: The short term blame goes to Trump, Biden and circa 2020-democrats

It amuses this American citizen how easily politics can be misleading and how those that play in the swamp of polluted politics are content to do so: if they would let the rest of us live our lives in peace, it would be so much easier to enjoy life. But they won't: and why not?
Here is the fallacy of the contention that President Trump was a short term proximal cause of how badly American politics ahs taken the wrong turn: he did not set it up; he merely got in the way.
Ask the question: who requested the Ukrainian leader to call off the Ukrainian prosecutor: and why does the current American 46th Chief Executive's office keep pushing the Ukrainian buttons in the face of the Russian threat: payback?
This compels this citizen to recall a similar situation of nukes in the western region, but sooooo much closer to the American homeland and people wondered how America would react to Russian intervention?
Then there was Russian intervention in Afghanistan in the eighties: did America start that: or who ended it?
But look, now: American is finally out of Afghanistan: who do we thank for that?
To be sure, the trivialities of American politics has a lot of issues that apparently no one can solve: but remember, Donald J Trump only served 4 years; the current occupant has decades of American political experience and tell us how he had/has not been able to figure out how to make it work?
