The no deal maker

The first book about Trump, “The Art of the deal” portrayed Trump as a man who could really put people and things together. The real author, Tony Schwartz, admitted regretfully that he painted a very in accurate picture of Trump. He later said he never met anyone with such a short attention span. He was horrified of Trump having to decide on complex issues. Trump can not concentrate long enough to grasp them. 

Trump’s obsession with three sentence tweets show the depth of his mind as Schwartz pointed out.

Now that the Republican Trumpcare has died in its tracks another time, Trump is blaming Congress for not “touting” the great features of the bill. Why didn’t he do it?  As President and alleged deal maker he should have gotten Congress and the American people on board. Instead, Americans oppose Trumpcare by 3-4 to 1. 

The difference between the American people and Trump is that they have read parts of it. They don’t like what they see. If Trump read any of it, he should have pointed out how good it is. But as Tony Schwartz warned, Trump can’t concentrate on anything much.  

Now, Trump wants to repeal Obamacare with no replacement. He doesn’t know why we should repeal Obamacare or he would show us how bad it is. Cutting tens of millions off from health care doesn’t bother his conscience.  He isn’t aware that is what has to happen if Obamacare is repealed with nothing at all to replace it. 

Hopefully, the country will survive this know nothing know-it-all and there will be a day of reckoning for him and the party that put him in the White House.
