To claim that Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing is a huge understatement. More frightening is the fact that he refuses to learn. He is unable to see the ‘big picture’ which includes the needs of all Americans. He is not a leader; a leader moves forward, and Trump’s proposals are regressive.
Trump is too busy tweeting about CNN and “Morning Joe” to realize that the escalating situation with North Korea is a threat to the security of the entire world. He appears not to be concerned, and proven by the fact that he has no plan for alleviating the situation.
Trump tweeted multiple times about North Korea, but failed to include one idea of how America should address the situation.
“Well, I think China has total control over the situation,” Trump responded. North Korea “wouldn’t exist for a month without China. And I think China, frankly, as you know —and I’ve been saying it for a long time, and people are starting to see that I’m right —China is not our friend.”
His only goal has nothing to do with the United States; he obviously believes that this is China’s problem; not ours.
“China could solve this problem easily if they wanted to, but they have no respect for our leaders.” A few weeks later, another tweet: “North Korea can’t survive, or even eat, without the help of China. China could solve this problem with one phone call —they love taunting us!”
In February of 2016, Trump laid out his plan to address North Korea’s growing aggression; he gave the entire responsibility to China.
“I deal with them. They tell me. They have total, absolute control, practically, of North Korea. They are sucking trillions of dollars out of our country —they’re rebuilding China with the money they take out of our country. I would get on with China, let China solve that problem. They can do it quickly and surgically. That’s what we should do with North Korea.”
Is this Trump’s plan for every problem facing our nation; ‘let someone else do it?’
Every president in my lifetime has left office physically displaying the difficulty of the office. Trump is the first president who refuses to work; to make an effort to govern effectively. He golfs and watches FOX Noise. When he’s not playing; he’s tweeting.
“America, we have a problem.” We have a buffoon in the White House, and he’s taking our country down with him.
Trump is leaving for the G20 Summit today. Earlier I wrote an article about the damage he could do to our nation while he is in Germany. After I wrote it, I realized that it could be far worse than I feared. I learned that he made absolutely no preparations for these important meetings.
If there is a god, I hope that he or she will save us from “Trumpenstein.”
Please re-post; thank you.
