Maybe you don’t have to be a politician to be the President of the most powerful nation in the world, but you sure as hell need to play politics while you’re the President of the most powerful nation in the world or any nation so to say.
And that’s what Trump doesn’t know how to do; play politics.
This professional dearth is causing Trump on many grounds. First, his ratings are record-low, and his likability keeps sinking. In other words, he’s the most hated President in U.S history.
Besides all the election drama where Trump was uncontrollably blurting every thought that came to his mind, he most recently reassured us of his political folly in his response to the violence on anti-racism protesters at the white nationalist rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides,” Trump said in response to the violence.
What Trump didn’t know at the time of making the speech is what “on many sides” insinuates. Trump didn’t know that those three words invariably meant that he supported the violence. And as usual, his words were met with disgust from the very people he’s thought to lead.
Comparing his response to that of his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, one can immediately spot the difference.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
As seen, Obama seems to always says the right things, and this is a lesson for Trump to learn.
Politics is not about the idea, but about the candidate.
So instead of Trump incessantly comparing his administration to that of Obama’s, he should look instead to develop himself, bearing in mind that great politicians are not judged by their deeds but by their words.
