I don’t know about you but there are some things that I expect from a leader and one of those things is that they have some measure of DIGNITY. I also expect a leader to have some measure of SELF CONTROL being careful what they say and whom they say it too. In other words, I expect a leader to think BEFORE they speak. Listening to President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jon Un, however, reflects NONE of my expectations of a leader and, in fact, it’s like listening to two squabbling children! The situation between Trump and Kim has now been reduced to name calling and, frankly, this is what I would LEAST expect not only from two national leaders but supposedly ADULT men! BOTH are acting like children now and it’s embarrassing to see a POTUS engaging in such juvenile activity.
Trump is the reflection of a long and ongoing problem in the United States and that problem is that we just can’t find a REAL leader in this nation nowadays. Sorry but the last election pitting Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump was nothing short of an absolute FARCE! They were our two choices and any potential dignified candidate was weeded out in the primaries, sadly. There were a few candidates that I think would have been far more worthy of the Oval Office than either Clinton or Trump such as Sen Ted Cruz, Sen Marco Rubio, or Sen Bernie Sanders and I’ll include Dr Ben Carson as well in the “worthy” group. But Trump and Clinton? What a sad statement that made to the world as neither one of them have any dignity and neither one of them ever thinks before they speak. Both have a bad habit of just mouthing off without even thinking about what they are saying or whom they are saying it to and in Trumps position now as POTUS that can be very dangerous. International politics can be risky and explosive and that is why a sitting POTUS should be careful what they say either by voice OR via Twitter.
Trump is NOT scoring any points with MOST Americans by his continued rants on Twitter or by engaging in a name calling circus with Kim. In fact, BOTH leaders are looking like absolute juveniles now and their behavior over the past week has made BOTH nations the laughing stock of the entire realm of international politics. Problem is BOTH of these men tend to have explosive personalities and BOTH tend to react without thinking and in terms of war than could be dangerous and disastrous!
I don’t know about you but I expect something MORE and BETTER from a POTUS. I expect him/her to act like and ADULT with intelligence, caution, forethought, and rationalism. Instead what we have is a president who spouts off quickly and emotionally with no forethought, now caution, no rationalism, and apparently no intelligence either. This kind of behavior is going to get our nation in trouble somewhere along the line if not North Korea then somewhere else. And, further, I frankly can’t believe that this is how an ADULT man conducts his “foreign policy.” This is absolutely insane!
