Trump is described as being in a state of explosion because he believes that the country has not given him enough credit for handling the hurricanes.
The Washington Post reported, “Frustrated by his Cabinet and angry that he has not received enough credit for his handling of three successive hurricanes, President Trump is now lashing out, rupturing alliances and imperiling his legislative agenda, numerous White House officials and outside advisers said Monday. In a matter of days, Trump has torched bridges all around him, nearly imploded an informal deal with Democrats to protect young undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children, and plunged himself into the culture wars on issues ranging from birth control to the national anthem.”
Trump doesn’t get extra credit for handling (poorly) the hurricanes because that is what the president is supposed to do. 85% of Puerto Rico is still without power. If eighty-five percent of New York or Texas were without power, it would be an around the clock story, but Trump seems to think that the hurricanes are over and the job is done.
Protecting the American people and helping them rebuild after a natural disaster is what the president does.
Trump wants constant love and praise, and if he doesn’t get it, he burns everything around him to the ground. It isn’t complicated or difficult to understand. Donald Trump is not fit to be president. Republicans can keep pretending that Trump is fine, but the majority of America already understands that this man should not be president.
