Has Trump given up governing the country?

Fire, pestilence and a country at war with itself: the Trump presidency is over.

                          Robert Reich

A pandemic unabated, an economy in meltdown, cities in chaos over police killings. All our supposed leader does is tweet.

You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t noticed. His verbal bombshells are louder than ever, but Donald J. Trump is no longer president of the United States.

By having no constructive response to any of the monumental crises now convulsing America, Trump has abdicated his office. 

He is not governing. He’s golfing, watching cable TV and tweeting.

How has Trump responded to the widespread unrest following the murder in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for minutes as he was handcuffed on the ground?

Trump called the protesters “thugs” and threatened to have them shot. “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” he tweeted, parroting a former Miami police chief whose words spurred race riots in the late 1960s.

    How do you "give up" doing something you never started in the first place?

    It sure does look like he's just lost interest in everything but eating, tweeting and goffing.

    Don’t worry libs will get their way and takeover the country. THEN you will see total anarchy, starvation, and pestilence.  Besides what do you expect him to do?  It ls the governor's  job to deal with rioters.  Are you criticizing your lib governors? .  You libs back the rioters, and the lib policies that created this mess and then you try to blame Trump. Your hypocrisy is showing.

    If Trump had initiated a federal response to the recent unrest, you'd be calling him a murderer or Hitler.

    Admit it.  You know it's true.

    Trump hates being President and it shows.
