Re: So, Trump. What now?

I can see no flaw in your assessment of his profound incompetence and overall unfitness for the most important job in the world. Anyone who says, "Believe me!", over and over again is someone you know should not be believed. Trump's motto seems to be: "If at first you don't deceive......
