“Everything has gone down the drain because of Donald Trump.”
Down the drain means this: The family had sold their house, their car and all their possessions to aid them in their new life. The children were pulled out of their schools. Sharef quit his well-paying job at a pharmaceutical company. And their air tickets cost $5,000.
""Donald Trump Destroyed My Life,’ Says Barred Iraqi Who Worked for U.S."" is from the January 29, 2017 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Sudarsan Raghavan and narrated by Sam Scholl."
