Why would we want to ‘turn the country around’?

Regarding Herald columnist Tom Burke’s column on how all Republicans in Congress are corrupt and “what’s going to help us turn the country around;” our country currently has the highest employment, lowest unemployment, highest income per capital, better foreign trade agreements, lower illegals entering our country, better boarder security, and a thousand more positive things our country has achieved under the current Republican administration.

So, please explained to me how you want to “turn the country around.” And please include all the positive items the Democrats have ever done for the country in the last 11 years. I remember thousands on welfare and food stamps, low employment rates, bad foreign trade deals, billions give to Iran, corruption by Department of Justice and FBI officials that will be prosecuted this next year. I’m sure you have all the answers to “make America great again.”
