I seem to recall Trump whining about how Obama was not a strong leader. Well here we see Trump's version of what a real leader should do - flip flop. He cannot make up his mind whether to give another tax break, whether to lower or raise tariffs on China, whether to bomb Iran, and whether to require more background checks on guns. He says one thing one day and the next he tweets the opposite. For such a stable genius he sure has a hard time keeping his mind straight.

He hit the nail on the head over the weekend: "I second guess every decision I make". That's a really special trait in the leader (sic) of the free world.


Can u imagine if he was a field general or had to make other "go/no go" decisions?


It is no wonder people in his administration simply ignore his orders. They change so frequently (the orders, not the people (but that is another matter) that if you just wait a couple of hours you will be in line with his reversal of the reversal of the reversal of an order.

One thing we knew about Trump going in, he wasn't grounded in policy. McConnell voiced his concern early on saying Congress don't know which way he's going.
Maybe something to do with how an executive doesn't show his hand which is the opposite of what you want in politics.
With Trump you don't know where he's going until it's decision time.

Trump never knows where he's going. He throws crap out there, see how it affects the market or his approval, and then will flip flop accordingly, all the while saying that he didn't say what he said. Gaslighting at its finest.

He farts into the air and sniff the stench to figure out what he should do...

So, hmmmmm, didn't you guys call it "evolving" when someone on the left flip-flopped? Yes, I think you did....

I woke up this morning and Hillary Clinton still wasn't the president. I said a prayer of thanksgiving to God for that. Even if President Trump flip and flopped twice in the same day I'm glad he's is the President. We know that no politician has ever flip flopped before.

"Flip-flop" doesn't do justice to explain his indecisive behavior, lack of leadership skills, and failure to grasp basic policy issues or consequences of his botched decisions. He is essentially and totally incompetent and utterly unprepared to be president.

Naw, you and yours are just p*ssed off because he is seriously addressing the illegal immigration problem. You fool no one. None of what you have claimed above is true.
