A whiny businessman once said, “One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace. Good people don’t go into government.” Trump validates this claim given the fact that he is now working in government. A good person knows how to:
- condemn hatred,
- show kindness,
- tell the truth,
- obey the law,
- and keep their mouth shut.
Donald Trump has failed to do all the above time and time again.
His comments this past week on Charlottesville, violence, racism, history, leftist ideologies, conservative dogmas, and fringe political groups have been especially troubling. He failed to unequivocally condemn racists and neo-Nazis, and then proceeded to blame both sides for the violence in Charlottesville. Instead of trying to bridge divides like past presidents, Trump does the opposite.
Donald Trump will be remembered very differently than all his predecessors because of his failure forcefully condemn hate and unite Americans. He has consistently divided us since the start of his campaign. When he is not distracting us or refusing to take accountability for his mistakes; he attacks people for their gender, appearance, ethnicity, etc..
It is fair to question whether Donald Trump is a good person. And more of our country is beginning to recognize this and question his morality and ability to lead.
