As a business man, Donald Trump obviously walked all over whomever her wanted whenever he wanted. This is how he made it big in the business world. However, he is continuing to walk all over everyone as President of the United States and this is troublesome. In reality, this is more than troublesome. This is a nightmare and the rest of the ruling government in America needs to stop coddling Trump and do something before he takes the world to the point of no return.
Trump has constantly done whatever he wanted to do, from firing people who may end up bringing down his presidency (Sally Yates, James Comey), to releasing government secrets to foreign governments, too much, much worse. Attacking the media constantly when all they are doing are reporting the truth. Truth, Donald Trump does not like, but the truth none-the-less. He has been called a bully and many feel that is just scratching the surface.
Showing off his golf courses, taking his family, who he has placed in government positions, into meetings they really had no business being in with foreign leaders, only to find out later that their business ventures suddenly received major concessions from these same foreign governments. Things look real fishy on the outside, and, chances are, smell real fishy on the inside too.
However, it just gets worse. During Trump’s first official visit overseas, he acts smug and like he is the answer to the world’s problem, yet he shoves another world leader out-of-the-way for a photo-op. Back home, over the Memorial Day weekend he acts childish during the playing of the National Anthem during a ceremony at Arlington, swaying back and forth, partly singing, just an embarrassment.
The government is having a hard time handling Trump. Sometime praising him on the rare occasion that he does do something good, but not verbally condemning him when he puts the United States in danger. Allowing him to retain his personal cell phone, which is not 100 percent secure like the government issue phones, but allowing him to use his personal Twitter account to attack the press, attack the constitution, attack the security of the United States is crazy. And allowing him to give that number out to foreign leaders to contact him whenever they want, bypassing security protocols puts the world at risk, according to the Washington Post.
Donald Trump fired Sally Yates, the United States Attorney General, because she warned the incoming president that General Michael Flynn, his choice for National Security Advisor had lied about personal contacts with Russia, and Yates’ choice to not defend the president’s travel and immigration ban. She would not do what Trump wanted, so he fired her. James Comey was leading an investigation by the FBI into Trump administration ties to Russia during and following the campaign, and the president fired him, hoping that would put an end to the investigation.
Looking at Trumps first 100 days, the President has not followed through on one single item he promised the American people with the exception of a Supreme Court nominee. Trump, who came up with his first 100 day plan then questioned who made the decision that there should be a 100 day plan. Donald Trump did, that’s who.
While this article only touches the surface of what the president is doing, it should be obvious to anyone that he is putting the security of the United States at risk on a daily basis. Congress and the U.S. Senate need to act and act now to reign in Donald Trump before he does something that ends up harming the people of the USA.
