All I ever think about with Trump is that his biggest resume item he relies on as a presidential candidate has been his business acumen. He (albeit his companies) have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy four times in the last 25 years. Now yes Chapter 11 can be a shrewd business move, and it is not always based off of bad business decisions or bad leadership; however, Trump can’t have this both ways.
As a President of the US you must ultimately be in charge. You must own up to your decisions and choices and take ownership. As Truman said “The buck stops here.” Donald often spouts how HE is personally responsible for the growth of his empire…well, then you must also be responsible for its failures too.
So…its a or b…
a) He is a figure head who has no control or authority in his empire and he is neither responsible for the success or failures therein.
b) He is the ultimate authority and in control of everything and any success is due to his leadership and every failure is also due to his leadership.
In either case his sole claim to “I’d be the best president because…” is bunk. It is exactly why he would be a TERRIBLE president.
