It may not be as easy as ABC to decide whether Obama was better for America or Trump is.
Trump may not be the most loved US President but for all his bluff, bravado and bluster Mr. Trump’s bark has proven much more effective than his bite. His stunningly reckless tweet to North Korea’s Kim conveyed that Trump’s govt. is no less than Obama’s when it comes to giving ultimatums. Trump has put a unique mark on the govt. and many policies you will see reflect his presidency. In addition, Trump has done this with vengeance and is more open with what he feels than being silent.
Paradoxically, the glaring exception to Trump’s Obama is to blame for everything rule is perhaps a president’s most important job. On the question of when and how to use military force, Trump like Obama has shown more risks but not on the life of his troops on which he has been amazingly gentle. Opposite all odds and expectations trump reply to Syria’s civil war was rather cold and similarly to Afghanistan’s Taliban. His strategy for the Syrian civil war was just a slopped up version of Obama’s strategy.
Despite the fact that Trump loves giving ultimatums, he miraculously understands that military strategy and tactics are not in his wheelhouse. Trumps limited use of army in Syria and his obstructions to military in North Korea clearly shows his hesitation in massive killings and deaths.
Unlike Obama, Trump is more of a domestic oriented kind off president and his priorities are all sorted. Making bold moves on international policies is not really his cup of tea. As he said in his recent interview that wasting trillions of dollars on foreign wars brings no peace to his citizens and this, much money can help them have a better life than to drown it in other countries wars.
We can conclude that Trump’s volatile temperament, fragile ego and reckless tweeting is a lot different than Obama has and will surely end up America into some kind of war.
With the amount of bad that he has done, there is no denying that Trump has done some good too. Some of us are just blinded by our hatred towards him that we overlook all his good deeds whereas some of us are also so much in love with him and devoted to him that we are willing to overlook all of his transgressions.
