OBSERVATIONS ABOUT DONALD J. TRUMP – 45TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. (Part 2)
I know very little about Donald Trump personally. Most of what I know about him is derived from personal observation of him during his public appearances as reported on television news and biographical information and reports in the press.
Donald Trump was born in 1946. His father Fred Trump was a business man involved in real estate. It has been reported that upon his death, Donald Trump inherited a substantial amount of money which he has managed to parlay into several billion dollars over the years. Reports say that he managed to achieve this by surrounding himself with savvy people as well as through legal maneuvers which allowed him to declare and file for bankruptcy as the expense of his lawful creditors.
Donald Trump considers himself a shrewd, even smart business man, able to reach deals through negotiation. However, not many people have stepped forward to endorse that idea. And somewhat expectedly has not overwhelmingly demonstrated this skill during his first 126 days in office.
Coming to his campaign for election, one almost gets the impression that he was talked into announcing his candidacy for the office of POTUS. If that supposition were true, then the next obvious question one would ask oneself is this: who were the people and what were their motives for pushing his nomination forward?
And, while we ponder that last question, let us look at some of the people he has appointed to key positions and at the same time look at the people jockeying for prominence in the White House.
The most remarkable point of course is that not one of his appointees have any real experience either in government, diplomacy or foreign affairs from a political standpoint. And sadly while claiming that he was going to “drain the swamp” he had no real understanding about how the senate and the Congress and Washington DC for that matter, works His disdain for the career government staff reinforces the notion that he is both ignorant and that his underlying trait is that of a controlling person. Donald Trump seems to be under the impression that as president, he now gets to call the shots. Perhaps it’s time for someone, a friend who cares for him and for our country, to take him behind the woodshed for a “Come to Jesus” talk.
