Theres No Understanding Donald Trump

https://www.theatlantic.com/notes/2019/07/theres-no-understanding-donald-trump/593932/

It’s been barely two weeks since Donald Trump became the first American president to step onto North Korean soil, with all attendant theorizing about what the move meant, or didn’t. Was it the “biggest moment of the Trump presidency so far” and “already a political win,” as some media figures claimed? Was it, on the contrary, another sign of Trump’s “dictator envy” and “authoritarian buffoonery”? Was it a move toward peace—or war, or both, or neither, or simply more uncertainty? Who was outwitting whom?

Although it was just two weeks in the past, that moment feels like two centuries ago, given the nonstop series of crises and “Breaking News!” emergencies since then. For instance: the census showdown; the Epstein/Acosta disasters; the leaked British Ambassador cables; more rumblings about Iran and China; the horrors (sic) of migrant detention-camp conditions, and the long-threatened kickoff this weekend of ICE roundup raids.....

.....the people most accustomed to “analyzing” political actions and decisions—journalists, historians, political veterans, people who pride themselves on figuring out what is “really” going on—are the ones least able to recognize what the world is experiencing with Donald Trump.....

I dunno. I've never had any problem understanding President Trump--perhaps it's because I don't try to, and so it happens naturally.

Instead, I just sit back, kick off my shoes, relax, and get mellow, watching the show.

1. Trump Derangement Syndrome

It still hasn’t dawned on them that most people think Trump is doing a better job than Obama

Because they are becoming openly hostile and aggressive toward Trump supporters his landslide re-election will confuse them even more

3. I do not have any problem understanding President Trump.

It is very simple, no diplomatic bullshit at all.

"America first, Americans first, the rest of the world can kiss our ass."

Pretty simple.
