Dollars under the Donald

For those of us Americans abroad, beyond the constant unenviable task of explaining why Trump is president (I have a whole slew of answers in Arabic that I won't bother translating), we have the other uneviable effects of his presidency: the diminishing dollar.

The dollar has literally plummeted 10 percent in value since he took over in January 2017.  Trump has been an albatross on good ol' American greenbacks, and a tenth of the dollar's value has been shaved off while he has been at the helm.

Make America Great Again?  How about you make the dollar great again first.
