Quality Objection

March 28, 2017

My objections to the Trump presidency, like my objections to his candidacy, are not rooted in politics, but in something more fundamental: Qualifications and Experience.

Donald J. Trump seems not to have any clear political philosophy guiding him.  To the extent he has any philosophy at all, it seems to be narcissistic:  Trump first, second, and third.  In fourth place is anyone or anything willing or able to serve his first three priorities.

This makes for a Presidency open to manipulation by a variety of bad actors.  His very lack of political experience or other mitigating qualifications, combined with his lack of any sort of principled vision of governance , opens our country to attack from within and without.
