Donald Trump is the President-Elect of the United States. He will be sworn in on January 20th, 2020. He has run a campaign that was based on issues of change and his outsider status. It would seem reasonable to believe that his election represents the rebirth of American democracy.
Trump has already begun his work in the executive branch. He has chosen two very important positions, Secretary of State and Secretary of Labor. He has also named an extremely capable and popular Secretary of Defense, Senator, and Attorney General.
Some have questioned how long the term of the Trump Presidency will last. His initial term in office will start on January 20th. There will be an assumption of the office by the Vice President and Secretary of State until further notice.
While many people are concerned about his inexperience, the President-Elect is not. In fact, he is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. He has accomplished this with the help of good business sense.
As a business person myself, I can tell you that the person that will have the most influence over the success of your business, is the person who knows the ins and outs of the business. He or she should understand the difference between good and bad business, and what is required of him or her in order to succeed. They should have an understanding of market research and analysis.
So the question is, does having business experience make one qualified to be President of the United States of America? The answer to this question is no. He is just another businessman. That is all we know about him, and he is just another member of the general population.
But just as a person who has a certain amount of technical knowledge, but lacks the understanding of the business world is not qualified to be a mechanic and just as a mechanic who has been working for a while without being familiar with mechanics or business is not qualified to be an engineer, so too is the President-Elect. The President-Elect of the United States of America, The Leader of the Free World, and the commander in chief of our military, a person that has some political and business experience, is not qualified to lead the world’s greatest military or nation.
We are a unique nation, and we are all great people. I am confident that if we all continued to follow his example, the United States of America will continue to grow at an unprecedented rate.
Many say that the President Elect’s lack of experience in the business world will only serve to weaken our economy. Indeed I hope not, because if we are going to build our economy we must begin with our citizens and not our businesses. The citizens must feel that they have control of their own destiny and that the decisions that affect them are in their best interest.
I was recently watching some of his speeches and you could see that he was talking down to us as a group of a good citizens. This is not a good way to lead. That is not the type of leadership that we need.
This type of leadership is one that is out of touch with the needs of the people and more concerned with what the corporations, media, or special interests are saying. rather than the citizens of America. That is not a leader that we should be concerned with.
To be sure, this is not to say that there aren’t some very good leaders in America today, and those are some of the finest in the world. But we have lost that leadership that has led by example, and have lost faith in our ability to govern ourselves.
