This weekend will be Donald Trump’s 3rd weekend away from the White House with a trip down to his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida.
He seems to be making a mockery of his campaign pledge to spend more time in Washington than his predecessor. However, Trump may have a good (to him) reason to be going out of town so much: he’s afraid of having to deal with Washington politicians and bureaucrats.
This should come as a surprise to most people since as a businessman and TV personality, he would have had to deal with all sorts of people. He couldn’t have expected things to be easier as president, but here we are, wondering if he’s just scared to make the hard decisions that need to be made as president of the United States.
Already, we’ve seen him take calls at his resort, in public, over sensitive military matters (North Korea’s rocket launch) and even let his staffers pose for pictures with the public and the nuclear football. It’s clear that he’s scared to do the actual hard work that needs to be done as president. As a businessman, you can delegate just about everything other than waking up in the morning, as president, you wouldn’t be able to delegate nearly as many things.
Why is Donald Trump so afraid of Washington? Is it because he knows that he may not be up to the task of president, or does he have a genuine fear of not being able to handle everything?
