It’s no secret that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been a nightmare for both liberals and many conservatives. In addition to spewing bigotry and condoning hate, Trump is also very politically inexperienced.
As a real estate mogul and businessman, Trump has afforded himself an affluent lifestyle that has been revered by many people for decades. However, that doesn’t mean he has what it takes to run the entire country! He has proven this fact on countless occasions along the campaign trail and continues to make himself sound like a buffoon on a regular basis.
Last week, Trump spoke to “Morning Joe’s” host Mika Brzezinski about foreign policy. Brzezinksi asked him whether he had a foreign policy team yet to which he replied, “Yes, there is a team. There’s not a team. I’m going to be forming a team. I have met with far more than three people.”
As if that wasn’t bizarre enough, Brzezinski gave him another chance to answer the same question as well as an inquiry about who he consistently consults with regarding foreign policy. Trump offered another very convoluted, ambiguous answer that contained a copious amount of narcissism.
“I'm speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I've said a lot of things. I know what I'm doing, and I listen to a lot of people, I talk to a lot of people, and at the appropriate time I'll tell you who the people are. But my primary consultant is myself and I have, you know, a good instinct for this stuff."
This idiotic man is on track to becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee; he has received endorsements from some of his former opponents who have called out his inexperience on numerous occasions while running against him. He is reckless and completely insane if he believes that his “good brain” contains all the knowledge and strategy necessary to deal with foreign affairs as the commander in chief of the United States.
In reality, he probably has no one to consult with or advise him because foreign policy leaders want nothing to do with him. Nearly 100 Republican foreign policy veterans came together to sign an open letter criticizing Trump’s stance on America’s role in international affairs.
"Mr. Trump's own statements lead us to conclude that as president, he would use the authority of his office to act in ways that make America less safe, and which would diminish our standing in the world," the letter stated.
Max Boot, one of the letter’s signatories, even said he would rather work for North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un than for Donald Trump! That statement speaks volumes.
As terrifying as it is, a Trump presidency is very quickly becoming a realistic possibility, which means voters need to pay close attention to the political moves he will try to make as president. If he can’t even answer a simple and direct question about foreign policy strategy, he is absolutely not suitable to lead this country.
