How do you assess the Trump administration so far?
Carter: Trump Administration is suffering from a lack of experience with a high turnover , personal issues , tweeting and Russian problems. Trump and his administration is morally and ethically incapable of leading this country. We need a president and administration that understands, no man is greater than the office of presidency This administration is reactive not proactive, like giving teachers guns . if teachers wanted guns they would have become police officers or building a wall. We should building a relationship with Mexico, economically and securities. We tried being isolationistt as result World War II. The president does not have a understanding of world history or anyone in his cabinet. Being President of the United States is great honor with lots of responsibilities, an example for our children and its citizens and the world. Being a Ceo or business owner is very different from being president.. Ceo/Businees owner is about profit , loss and sales . Being President, the Constitution and the rule of law , leadership, domestic and foreign affairs, President Trump and his administration has failed on all levels. I do not wish for the president and his administration failure because it will be a failure for our would country, I love.
