Donald Trump didn’t have a clue how the US government worked when he got into the White House – but unfortunately, 9 months later he still doesn’t have the faintest idea. Instead of learning the ins and outs of his new role and acknowledging the major responsibility he holds, Trump has instead opted to play golf nearly every weekend and tweet his time away, prioritizing petty arguments and humiliating America over dealing with core issues.
Trump’s ignorance and incompetence were on full display recently, when he blew up after discovering that US companies are not allowed to pay bribes to heads of foreign governments.
In a profile of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, The New Yorker reported:
In February, a few weeks after Tillerson was confirmed by the Senate, he visited the Oval Office to introduce the President to a potential deputy, but Trump had something else on his mind. He began fulminating about federal laws that prohibit American businesses from bribing officials overseas; the businesses, he said, were being unfairly penalized.”
Once again, Trump proves that he is all in favor of corruption and has zero morals. He has been operating unethically his entire life – of course he thinks US companies should be able to hand out bribes!
This just goes to show how much of a disaster having Trump in the White House is. Here, he is actually throwing a fit because he can’t further corrupt the country he is supposed to be leading. This should be a major red flag to the Special Counsel and all others involved in Trump’s multiple investigations because if Trump thinks paying bribes is fine, he likely has a history of using bribes and breaking the law himself.
America could not be any worse off with this idiot in the White House, and this proves that Trump is going to greatly damage the country if people don’t step in and stop him.
