President-in-Training (unfortunately for the rest of us)

July 23, 2017

When a public servant, elected or other, is willing to sacrifice his constituents for his pride, we do not have a public servant. It becomes exponentially more frightening to me when that public servant is the leader of all US public servants – the president of the United States.

Yes, our current president said, on camera, it’s time to “just let Obamacare fail.” Horrifying and insensitive! Not like that would hurt any ummm – people!

It is his job to own it, not let it fail without an alternative. It is his duty to work it, not walk away from it. It is his moral and political obligation.

What happened to his campaign bravado that he could negotiate and make deals? That he knows how to compromise?

I did not vote for him but I could see a connection between the ability to reach compromise and the need for that in Congress. If he was smart, he would figure out how to leverage his negotiation skills to build those relationships with all Congressional members. If he could do that, he and this country, might reach solutions and achieve progress.

Instead, we are stuck with a tired, ignorant, non-transparent president and administration. So far, they have accomplished nothing except to show us all how untrustworthy they are. All citizens, you know, those of us who are ordinary, hard-working, non-billionaire people, should be frightened and outraged. Current US leadership is wont to do anything for us.

Some days, I think Trump will get up one morning soon and say, “I’m done. I don’t need this. It’s harder than I thought it would be.” (He’s already admitted that the job and health care reform are too hard for him.)

The rest of us knew it was a hard job with difficult issues. We should never have chosen a president-in-training. That’s the VP job. I hope I’m right that he’ll walks away. I won’t hold my breath because he seems intent to destroy our country except for the select 1 percent.
