Trump’s “art of the deal” involves bullying and intimidation. Statements from some of Trump’s ‘business partners’ have reported how rude and angry Trump became during ‘negotiations’ when they disagreed. With no knowledge about government at any level, is it a surprise that Trump is now admitting that he ‘has a lot to learn?’
I doubt that Trump was aware that there are 535 men and women in congress, and that he must have a majority approval to move his agenda forward.
For eight years we had a ‘do-nothing congress’ thanks to Mitch McConnell. We now have a ‘know-nothing’ illegitimate, and totally immoral president defiling the White House.
If these facts are not proof that political parties destroy effective government, there will never be another opportunity. No form of democratic government can exist without deliberation and compromise. When we have only two major parties, and they refuse to talk to each other, government becomes dysfunctional.
On “Face the Nation” Sunday, Trump expressed his surprise about the workings of government.
“In many cases, you’re forced to make deals that are not the deal you’d make. You’d make a much different kind of a deal. You’re forced into situations that you hate to be forced into.”
This statement proves that he believes he was elected as a ‘king,’ rather than a president. Trump obviously has no understanding about our nation’s ‘check and balance’ system, where each branch has its own cache of incontrovertible powers.
What became apparent almost immediately is that Trump believed that his executive orders, which he previously denounced, were automatically law. Donnie boy, you have a lot to learn, and hopefully not enough time to learn it.
Before the election I frequently wrote that America must not have a man in office who required ‘on-the-job training;’ sadly, that’s exactly what we have today.
If you believe in prayer; pray for the American people.
