Okay, I understand why people like Trump. He’s strong, he knows what he wants, and he’s a successful guy.
But here’s why he would be terrible as president:
He’s immature. He’s never learned the art of diplomacy. He’s not used to talking with reporters or dealing with diplomats, or negotiating with equals. Don’t get me wrong, a guy who knows what he believes is a good thing. But he also has to be polite. And he has to know when to keep his mouth shut. He needs at least an ounce of humility.
He doesn’t know how to take “no” for an answer. He’s used to getting what he wants. Again, something some people admire. But I’ve seen too many of these leaders in action to be a fan. Knowing when and how to take advice is a really good thing in a leader. One man can’t possibly know everything, and to make the best decision, you need to get advice from other people. That’s why dictatorships fail so often. One man, no matter how smart, can’t make all the right decisions all the time.
These two major flaws might be the reason that, despite being one of the richest guys in the world, he’s filed for bankruptcy four times. This might also be a major factor in his failed marriages.
Anyway, I’m no expert, but I love watching leaders and taking notes on what they do right and wrong. And, in my opinion, Trump would be a terrible president.
