I am legitimately embarrassed by The President of The United States. Mr. Trump is almost 70 years old, but a look at his Twitter feed reveals the emotional maturity of an eight-year-old. Instead of being a leader and attacking an argument solely based on its merits, Donald decides to opt for the personal attack, going after someone personally and calling them names. To make matters worse, Donald decides to do this on Twitter, a social media platform with millions of users. It is the mark of immaturity, as well as insecurity, that causes Donald to do this. Can anyone imagine if Ronald Reagan sent out some of the Tweets that Donald Trump has sent? The outrage would be non-stop, and Reagan would surely not have the reputation he does today. Donald, what joy does it bring you to attack people personally? What good does tweeting out insults really do? You’re the President of The United States, it’d be nice if you started acting like it. You claimed in your victory speech that you wanted to unite this country and bring people together. Your tweets do the exact opposite. They say the best indicator of future behavior is past behavior. If that’s the case, we’re in for a long four years.
I’m urging you, Mr. President.
Put down the phone and start leading by example.
Be a President everyone can be proud of.
