Mr. Trump is very loud on his Twitter account.
I don’t think President Trump understands the power he has.
Many of us have thoughts about our current Commander-in-Chief. Here’s what I would consider as my “two cents” about our president.
The man is a well-established person. He’s a billionaire. He has an entire business empire that has his name slapped on everything.
But I’m not going to judge him based on his life pre-presidency.
I’m judging this man based on what he has done since his inauguration.
Let me state that I believe that everything he does is overly amplified simply because people already don’t like him. According to a recent poll reported by NewRepublic.com, 70 percent of Americans dislike Donald Trump.
At the risk of being called “fake news,” I think there are good reasons to be part of the 70 percent like President Trump’s revised travel ban.
According to The Washington Post, Muslim travelers who already have travel visas won’t have any issues getting into our country. But what if their visas expire? A judicial court froze the first ban which prevented what Trump wanted to do.
Now he has his new Director of Homeland Security John Kelly on his side and he isn’t taking questions on the subject. Judges continue to rule against him. On Wednesday, two more judges blocked a revised travel ban.
None of this has stopped the tweets.
Mr. Trump posted on Twitter that he believes ex-President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones. As baseless as that accusation was, it carried the power of The Office of President of the United States.
Obama’s spokesperson Kevin Lewis had to respond to CNN with the statement that, “President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any US citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”
Nobody is used to taking what Trump says too seriously. Now, we must take what Mr. Trump says very seriously. The Office of President of the United States demands it.
Former Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes pointed out through his Twitter account that laws are in place to restrict a U.S. president from ordering a wiretap.
Mr. Trump, we are taking you seriously. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are taking you seriously. Former President Obama is taking you seriously. We, the people, are taking you seriously.
I hope for my own well-being and that of the American people, over the next four years is that you, President Trump, will take what you say and do seriously too.
