The very serious danger with Trump as President is that he grew up in such a narrow world of business and corruption that he only nows the value of winning – at all costs. He thinks, I surmise,
that those who do not have those values are just cowards. Such a view is dangerous because the power of the Presidency, especially nuclear, leads to a willingness to take very large risks. The logic goes: ok, big risk. If we win, great big deal.. If we lose, so that’s life. Put 10 million down on a project (golf course, hotel), borrow another fifty million, could go great. If it doesn’t, well that’s life But if I win I will be the hero for life. If I lose I’ll just be another idiot.
Winning is big. Life is just the right to play the game. Other people are either on the team, enemies, or bystanders. I hate them all.
Trump is dangerous. But we mostly all benefitted from the screwed world that put him in the presidency. Lots of repairing to do.
