The Los Angeles Times posted an editorial on Sunday titled “The problem with Trump.” This is the first of a four part paper that will published under the same title.
The Times decided to slam Donald Trump for his attack on immigrants, his disbelieve in science that caused him to repeal the Obama era regulations aimed at curbing climate change, his failure to come up with a healthcare act that will benefit the American people,and his proposed inflation of the Pentagon’s budget despite a promise to reduce the country’s role in international conflicts.
Despite Trump having trouble with all these issues, that’s not the most worrisome thing about the president.
“What is most worrisome about Trump is Trump himself,” the editorial said. “He is a man so unpredictable, so reckless, so petulant, so full of blind self-regard, so untethered to reality that it is impossible to know where his presidency will lead or how much damage he will do to our nation.”
It added: “His obsession with his own fame, wealth and success, his determination to vanquish enemies real and imagined, [and] his craving for adulation,” although effective throughout his campaign, were “nothing short of disastrous” at the White House.
The editorial went on to speak about Trump’s border security and his plan to deport every single immigrant. And although mostly every single traditional conservatives favor his views, “Trump’s cockamamie border wall, his impracticable campaign promise to deport all 11 million people living in the country illegally and his blithe disregard for the effect of such proposals on the US relationship with Mexico turn a very bad policy into an appalling one.”
Trump has a plan, a plan to throw aside the facts and make people believe what he says is the actual truth. “Whether it is the easily disprovable boasts about the size of his inauguration crowd or his unsubstantiated assertion that Barack Obama bugged Trump Tower, the new president regularly muddies the waters of fact and fiction.”
Trump’s ideas, beliefs, and the way he attacks anyone and anything that opposes him is definitely worrisome. “Nothing prepared us for the magnitude of this trainwreck,” the editorial expressed.
