Why isn't the presidency turning out to be as easy as Trump expected?


And why did voters believe he could do things as easily as he said he could?

    I'll add something else to yours: he surrounded himself by "yes" men his whole life and often had someone to bail him out of hard times. Also, for years, he enjoyed a lot of good press (yes, he had that years ago). Now, all this has vanished. Alone..

    I think a lot of people saw him this way from the beginning - including me. There also seemed to be nothing to worry about at the time because we all thought most everyone else could see that, too. They did, but didn't come out to vote. *sigh*

    Good one, Mike. Ironically, I think it takes a politician to understand politics. Trump was elected by people who don't understand politics, so they shouldn't complain about his not keeping campaign promises because he doesn't either.

    We have seen this situation before with Democrats in Congress and the White House.

    I think you're right. We had experience with Mike Huckabee, a businessman governor also a Baptist preacher. He kept wanting to pass his religious beliefs as laws, and kept saying he would run the state like a business. He was a one-termer.

    Brad: There are somethings that are run better by the government than corporations: The FDA, FAA, FCC, USDA,, et al. They set national standards that protect us. How is a private corporation going to handle the FAA?
