It’s not that he doesn’t want to change the country and make you love him. It’s that he’s simply incapable of doing it.
According to this post at Politico, Trump is having a hard time adjusting to the demands of the position. For example:
Trump often asks simple questions about policies, proposals and personnel. And, when discussions get bogged down in details, the president has been known to quickly change the subject — to “seem in control at all times,” one senior government official said — or direct questions about details to his chief strategist Steve Bannon, his son-in-law Jared Kushner or House Speaker Paul Ryan. Trump has privately expressed disbelief over the ability of judges, bureaucrats or lawmakers to delay — or even stop — him from filling positions and implementing policies.
Ahh, yes, the “baffle them with bulls%^*” maneuver. I’ve seen that in many a presentation by someone who clearly doesn’t know his stuff.
The White House is leaking like a sieve, staffers’ morale is at an all time low and there are a series of palace intrigues going on since the inauguration.
If this is how he runs his businesses no wonder he’s been bankrupt more than once.
And now he’s threatening to make some changes to keep us safe. I already feel safe. Crime is at an all time low, terrorism isn’t likely to take out a city and I’m not worried about illegal aliens raping and pillaging because, as far as I know, that doesn’t actually happen.
Anyway, what’s wrong with the Patriot Act except for absolutely everything?
He’s starting to round up illegal aliens as well. This week, ICE has stepped up its efforts with “unusual intensity”:
U.S. immigration authorities launched a series of raids, traffic stops and checkpoints in at least half a dozen states across the country on Thursday and Friday, sweeping up an unknown number of undocumented immigrants, immigration lawyers and advocates said.
The raids, which appeared to target scores of undocumented immigrants, including those without criminal records, mark the first largescale episode of immigration enforcement inside the United States since President Trump’s Jan. 26 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.
It also appeared to signal a departure from the Obama administration’s prioritized immigration enforcement against criminals. Trump has pledged to deport up to 3 million undocumented immigrants.
Gillian Christensen, a spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), confirmed that ICE agents this week had raided homes and workplaces in Atlanta, the Los Angeles area and two other cities that she declined to identify, as part of “routine” immigration enforcement actions. ICE does not use the term raids.
But immigration activists said Friday that they had documented ICE raids of unusual intensity in the last 48 hours in Vista, Pomona and Compton, Calif.; Austin, Dallas, and Pflugerville, Texas; Alexandria and Annandale, Va.; Charlotte and Burlington, N.C.; Plant City, Fla.; the Hudson Valley region of New York; and Wichita, Kan.
There were also reports of ICE checkpoints, targeting immigrants for random ID checks, in North Carolina and in Austin.
Wait til the media starts showing videos of sobbing children as their parents are hauled away in the middle of the night.
Can we get any colder, more callous and less forgiving as a country?
It ain’t pretty, people. His house of cards is starting to look very shaky.
