On Friday, Dec. 27, you printed a column written by Steve Chapman of the Chicago Tribune titled “As North Korea shows, Trump is a terrible negotiator.”
Silly me — I would have thought President Trump’s bankrupting of not one, not two, but third time’s not quite the charm, three companies, long before he ran for president, should have proved his lack of skill in that department. Were those bankruptcies done intentionally to play the system? Might releasing his financial records show dirty dealings, and that’s why he won’t let us see them? Only the POTUS knows, and God, if you believe in that. President Trump makes a fairly good show of believing, but I think his god is truly money and power. Something that should really disturb people is Trump’s propensity for cozying up to murderous dictators who think nothing of killing or torturing not only hundreds of their countrymen (Putin as Soviet KGB head) but even their own family members (Kim Jong Un’s murder-for-hire of his half brother; for all we know there could be others).
Does anyone besides me think that trusting these kinds of people is beyond foolish? If Hitler were still around, would President Trump be praising his efficient train schedule, his art collection, and his highway-building? Autobahn, anyone?
