“Do you think we should rally behind the president?”
He is no longer president elect; he is simply President Donald Trump. Even with all the controversy surrounding him, is it now time to rally behind our president? Or, has he gone too far to go back? Should we live and let live? I mean then again, he did win the presidency. But, on the other hand, he has made some pretty disparaging comments. Some feel his actions have not warranted him forgiveness. Others have felt that Trump tells it like it is, so just let him run the country and stop protesting. Well, let’s observe why he might not need forgiveness from the public.
For starters, his comments he made toward women, Hispanics, and the Islamic community are seen as going too far. People felt that his lack of compassion and empathy does not grant him forgiveness. He also has this view of someone has to lose and someone has to win. Fine if you’re an athlete, but what about president. Having these views can only work against you in the end. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet, but Trump can’t. This is his downfall, and is something he must curb. In addition, Trump need to learn everything does not need a response. And if he does respond, then it shouldn’t be in this sophomoric manner. So with that said, I understand other people’s frustration.
But, on the other hand, why not listen to what he has to say? Didn’t he speak about cleaning the swamp. I agree, aren’t we all tired of career politicians? They make promises and never deliver. So a man who has already signed into an executive order what he promised is living by his word. He is doing what he said he would do. What about keeping our borders safe, isn’t that important? Shouldn’t we be keeping tabs on those who enter the country?
In the end, I think the majority of issues with Trump is not the compaign trail anymore, it’s his now behavior. The way he interacts with the press. He needs to learn to tone it down. He could easily flip around those that don’t like him into liking him. So until the feelings toward him change as well as he personality, then we will see nothing but protest from here on out.
