Actions of Trump

Postby pembsexile » May 17th, 2020, 6:50 am

Ok, got to offload this. On another thread the other day I spoke about the merits of democracy against other systems. I said that democracy with all its weaknesses was the best system.

I believe that it is showing its primary weakness in the USA at the moment. The actions of Trump are just indefensible. Here we have a primary narcissist who will not accept any criticism at all. I hope that this Achilles heel of his will eventually lead to his downfall.

We have seen and read of his recent outbursts and probably no need to repeat them again. However he has excelled himself just yesterday. He has no shame or care for others who do not agree with his views.

The Senior government inspector of one of his departments has been given 30 days notice to leave because he does not have the Presidents confidence. This is because he dared to investigate allegations of improper practices against his Secretary of State Pompeo. One of the allegations was that the Secretary of State got his staff to do personal/private work for him. Not allowed. I just hope the democrats follow this through and it doesn’t get consumed by partisan politics.

In a democracy we must have balances and checks against those in power. I will say, thank goodness we don’t have a Presidential system here, although Boris is ‘making a play’. (Actually I feel that Boris is doing his best but is struggling). I just feel that the Democrats and the media must follow this one right through as an abuse of power.

One idea. Why doesn’t one smart journalist pander to his Achilles heel during the regular press briefings. Tell him how wonderful he is and what a fantastic job he is doing. Then let Trump hang himself by his reaction to it. The journalist really, really needs to go ‘over the top’ on this.

I feel desperately sorry for the American people. However, it is his effect upon the rest of the world that concerns me. Whether you agree with it or not, he is the leader of the Western world. Heaven help us.

He's still doing a job he said he would do. He is also still quite high on the favourability reports. He will get re-elected.

Or he ignores them and moves to the next question,if they persist he has their mic taken off them.If too many uncomfortable questions come,he will walk off or,like last week,cancel the conference all together.He surrounds himself with yes men and women,if they doubt him then they get sacked.

I'm truly amazed no-one has considered an assassination attempt on him yet. He seems to upset, annoy, belittle and discriminate against so many American citizens, immigrants and world leaders.

I would never suggest using violence against anyone just because their views are different, or perhaps in Trump's case, ill thought through and dangerous. But he must have upset many people out there who don't have my level of tolerance.

At least his actions are lessened by the US being a federation, something Keir Starmer has in mind for this country.
