Not too long ago, Charles Barkley imparted some wisdom directed toward Donald Trump about focusing on issues that concern the everyday American. The advice could be directed toward politicians in general. Here is a recap of what Barkley said:
The NBA Hall of Famer told Axelrod he wants Trump to start focusing on the issues affecting everyday Americans.
Washington politicians lost their way long ago. Donald Trump, shortly after his election, lost his way. He quickly became a swamp rat losing touch with the issues important to everyday people.
Actions in D.C. show Trump, and the Washington elite, are simply disconnected. There is nothing about D.C. showing America that any elected representative is in touch with our values, our concerns, and our desires…
The problem in America-it is the D.C. elite against the rest of America.
In 2018 the power of change lies with us, not the elite as represented by Trump, McConnell, Ryan, Schumer and Pelosi.
