NIKKI HALEY FOR PRESIDENT
I have been observing Donald J. Trump for many years and these are some of my conclusions:
1. Donald is a very bright dysfunctional 13 year-old living in a 71 year-old adult body.
2. He suffers from a condition called Narcissistic Disorder. This is defined as "excessive admiration of oneself".
3. Donald Trump is the classic bully. He lacks the ability to show empathy toward other people or events. His mind simply will not allow him to express genuine concern for others. He does not know how to do it. He likes a fight, as all bullies do because this attracts attention and feeds his need to be the center of everything.
Donald has survived with this disorder by living in a bubble of money and lawyers. His behavior in response to his condition was to become a con-man who uses charm, money and intimidation to succeed. His business practices included hiring people to work for him, accusing them of some wrong doing, refusing to pay them and threatening to destroy them if they sue for their money. This is how he has gained some of his wealth. It is called STEALING.
Donald loves attention even if it is negative. As a bully he will say terrible things about others just to keep his followers or opponents talking and writing about him. It is how he maintains his power.
As a public figure Donald attracts people who love a train wreck or enjoy watching car crashes; people who want simple answers to complex problems; who want a god-like leader who says "ONLY I can fix it". They want to believe him, because they have no hope; they are afraid of the "OTHERS" out there; they want to be wealthy like him; or they simply want a better life.
The tragedy is that Donald is not capable of fulfilling any of the promises he has made. He and his family apparently believed that if he were President he could get all his ideas immediately put into effect just by the sheer power of his personality. That works in a dictatorship, but not in our democratic form of government. He seems to believe he can use his con-man powers of charm, bullying and intimidation to gets things done. It is not working.
This is a tragedy of monumental proportions for our country and the world. We have a President who does not know what he is doing. The slogans Donald used during the campaign had to be put in the form of policy and legislation. He appears not to want to work on policy or legislation and has discovered that Congress alone will not do his bidding. Thus he uses continuous attacka-tweets going after the other branches of government, the media and people who disagree with him. He does not seem to understand how self defeating this approach is.
I have spoken to Trump's supporters who say "just give him a chance". His behavior is becoming more erratic and scary by the day, He is creating "chaos" and either deliberately or unwittingly, he is playing right into the hands of the Russians and Putin. He is NOT the savior his supporters had hoped for and he is not going to change. He loves being in power, but he does not know how to use it.
The Trump presidency is already a failure and the Republicans know it; but most are quietly hoping for some kind of miraculous rebirth. I believe Donald will not be impeached, but he will leave the White House one way or another before his term is up.
Mike Pence is not equipped to make a good president, so my vote to replace a failed Trump presidency is to elevate UN Ambassador Nikki Haley to the position---she can be our first woman President.
