Donald Trump–Quitter-In-Chief?

“Donald Trump to stay as Apprentice executive producer”

This is one reason why I agree with Michael Moore’s prediction that Trump may quit before he assumes the presidency. At the very least I don’t expect Trump to serve out his entire term. I think he puts more value on his business investments and his income than he does on being the leader of one of the most powerful countries on earth (in many ways China has become more powerful and Putin’s strengthening Russia by increments to return it to its USSR state).

I’ve believed from the start of Trump’s campaign that he will refuse to sell off his holdings or put them all into a blind trust for the duration. I’ve also said no way will Trump accept a pay cut to be president. Trump has yet to show that he has ANY interest in being president. Look at his cabinet nominees. He’s taken a perverse joy in naming people either totally unqualified for the job or people who hate the agency or department they have been named to head. He plans to install people who will reverse decades-long policies and remove protections we’ve come to depend on. What he plans to bring to the federal government is outright anarchy as well as open rebellion and conflict across America as battle lines are drawn between the far right wing and everyone else. And then he’ll step aside and let President Mike Pence deal with it all.

I expect that if all of these nominees are confirmed by the Senate and President Trump or Pence allows them to ride roughshod over the Constitution and attempt to return the USA to the dark ages of the 18th, 19th, and first half of the 20th centuries, it will once again be the overreach of the GOP which will bring them crashing down along with the country. Huge, severe damage will be done that will take decades to reverse–if we have that much time left. That may mean the end of the GOP as we’ve known it unless they permanently fix the electoral system so that they never lose again.

However, the problem remains that while the implosion of the GOP is still imminent, the Democratic Party implosion already happened, thanks to Hillary Clinton and the DNC. The party has never been the same since the coup d’etat in 1963 when JFK was murdered, followed by LBJ pursuing victory in Vietnam to his own political destruction and that of the country. So, while there’s a vacuum on the Left, Trump is about to create one on the Right. Who will step in to fill it is too worrisome to contemplate now, considering the possibilities we presently have to choose from. Trump is no Hitler but Pence’s successor very well could be.

  1. This man does not want to be president he wants to be emperor

      Fortunately the Constitution will prevent that. I still think he’s going to quit either before or a bit after Jan. 20th. But then I was sure Bernie Sanders was going to fight at the convention for his nomination. I’m really hoping the Repugs overreach–as they always will–and 2018 will show big losses for them–unless them Rooskies and the GOP hackers steal the election–again.

  2. Well Donald does not believe his CIA, so not sure where one goes from there. He will continue to let pence be president de facto for the time being. If or when he finds out how to actually do the job, well then he MAYtake over……. But he doesn’t want to do the job, he just wants the praise and money for his biz …….but boy o boy we now have a real conservative mess of meaness…..so hope all you peeps enjoy your votes or lack there of…..
    I hope we don’t all go down the tubes or get nuked in the mean time……… Scary times folks!!!๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ’ฉ.
