When you consider the recent demeanour of President Donald Trump, especially as it relates to his downplaying of the current COVID-19 health crisis as well as his refusal to be forthright about his relationship with Russian Pres. Putin, you can’t help but wonder if he is trying to sabotage his own re-election. Trump must realize that the actual number of his diehard loyalists are not enough to secure another win and yet he seems to be unwilling to reach out to the undecided. Maybe he is anxious to return to his real estate business as he has surpassed his best-before date.
When Trump leaves office, hopefully this November, historians are not likely to portray him anything other than an overall failure. Perhaps the usual presidential library and museum that is made available for all presidents could include a “Twitter” and “Fact Checking” section.
The next U.S. president will have a lot of fence mending to do, not only at home but around the world.
