TKC MONDAY MORNING QUESTION: HAS KANSAS CITY PROSPERED OR SUFFERED AMID PREZ TRUMP 100 DAY MILESTONE?!?
Quick moment of contemplation and our first open question of the week before we really get into it . . .
HAS PREZ TRUMP INSPIRED KANSAS CITY POLITICAL RENAISSANCE EVEN AMONG HIS GREATEST LOCAL DETRACTORS!?!?
Let's look at the evidence:
Prez Trump Inspires Local Activists To Organize And Mobilize
One protest after the next in Kansas City nearly every weekend have put locals on the street marching and increasing their activism. Like it or not, passionate involvement in the local discourse and the politics of our nation is ALWAYS good for our Democracy.
Prez Trump Budget Kills The Kansas City Toy Train Extension Plan
Controversial Tiger Grants aren't even part of the Democratic Party agenda to fight the Prez on his budget. And so, the prospects of the toy train which depends on Federal Funding have been limited and basically derailed.
Kansas City Politicos Moved To Speak Out Amid The Age Of Prez Trump
Mayor Sly has stepped up his advocacy in the age of Prez Trump and a recent airport bullhorn protest was inspired by the Prez Trump immigration crackdown.
And so . . .
It clear that Prez Trump has transformed the politics of Kansas City . . . And very few people can say if this evolution has been for better or worse.
