On August 2, 2016, President Donald Trump tweeted, “President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!”
Well, in February 2018, the New York Times conducted a study where they hired political experts and the results found were that President Trump is ranked as the worst president in U.S. history.
“Where does Donald Trump rank on the list of American presidents? We surveyed presidential politics experts to sketch out a first draft of Trump’s place in presidential history. Since our previous survey in 2014, some presidential legacies have soared (Barack Obama’s stock has climbed into the Top 10). And President Trump? Let’s say that, according to the 170 members of the American Political Science Association’s Presidents and Executive Politics section who filled out our survey, he has at least three years to improve on an ignominious debut,” according to nytimes.com.
As someone who is neither a republican or democrat, my independent, open mindfulness and compassionate persona, was willing to give the president a chance.
At this point, a year and three months after his inauguration, I find it very difficult to take our U.S. head of state serious.
With white house staffers dropping like flies, sexual harassment allegations, to the Russian investigation, making porn stars famous (Stormy Daniels) and his continuous obnoxious comments made on social media and on TV, to openly slamming cancer stricken Senator John McCain, how could anyone be proud of President Trump?
Also, his actions and comments made towards other countries are quite embarrassing, to all of us.
Trump often says the media twists his narrative, but truly, if you’re smart enough, you can control your own narrative. News only publishes what you give them.
Normally I’m optimistic about everything, but my hopes of him becoming a positive leader aren’t going to happen, I realize that at 71 years old, bad habits are already engrained.
Here’s to hoping that the next Republican and Democratic nominees in 2020 are reputable, ethical, and leaders with grace; capable of making positive movements forward.
