The most painfully obvious reason that should’ve given us proof that Donald Trump would not make a sufficient president is the fact that he lacks political experience! A huge factor of all his supporting voters is the fact that he is a ¨outsider¨ when it comes to politics. According to Gautam Mukunda, a Harvard Business School professor, ¨Skills are far less transferable than we think they are. Even when you move from one company to another, you face the risk of not being successful. When you run from a company to the government, that’s a larger leap¨ Gautam reports to the Huffington Post (Peck). Trump is strictly a businessman with experience only in money-making and entrepreneurship. He is used to having a goal of just making money; not securing peace and prosperity for millions of Americans. A businessperson would be as good of a politician as a librarian would be a brain surgeon.
Donald Trump’s spot in the presidential race has been looked over upon various times that often causes people to question his credibility to be able to not only represent the country, but also the Republican Party with his plans for the country. Laura M. Brown, Ph.D., an associate professor and the program director of the Political Management Program in the Graduate School of Political Management at the George Washington University, is one of the many believers that suggest the Republican Party would have a greater chance of having one of their candidates win presidency if Donald Trump were to drop out of his campaign. The theory behind this particular idea is to allow other GOP candidates, such as Senator Marco Rubio or Governor John Kasich, to toughen their campaigns to eliminate Trump from the race (Brown). Trump is known to be easily appointed as “unfit for office” by the Democratic Party. Therefore, the Republicans must use Trump’s incapability for presidential office by strengthening one of their other candidates to keep the referendum question pointed towards the Democrats.
The second Super Tuesday occurred on March 15, 2016. Reported by The New York Times Donald Trump raised his total delegate count to 673 with Ted Cruz coming in second with 410 delegates (Andrews). The magic number needed to win, and secure, the nomination is 1,237 delegates, essentially making it a two-person race between Trump and Cruz. The electorate was apparently in favor of Trump, but the Republican establishment was not a fan. The Republicans were hoping for a contested convention to prevent Donald Trump from being nominated. If a contested convention were to occur, delegates had to first vote how they were pledged and if no delegate amount totals to 1,237 then a second round of voting happens where delegates can vote for whomever they choose. The candidate with the majority wins the nomination as explained by Mashable (Cahn). The Republican constituents should be cautioned by the lack of support that has been given to Trump by the Republican Party. The voters shouldve tried to recognize Donald Trump’s inability to be a capable president.
Article 2, Section 1, Clause 8 of the Constitution states the presidential Oath of Affirmation, ¨I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” (The University of Chicago). Donald Trump has had troubles so far being able to uphold the articles, sections, clauses, and amendments of the Constitution. These are the basic principles of being an American that instead of defending and protecting, he will destroy. Trump does not show credibility in his role of President of the United States due to his lack of knowledge in critical positions, respect for the citizens upon the US, and improbable plans for the future country. Is Donald Trump indeed the man that the country deserved to accurately represent the United States as the country’s leader? Imagine being the citizen that will have to suffer from works of the amateur politician, well we are all one.
Donald Trump’s extreme candor, xenophobia, racism, misogyny, and lack of political knowledge exemplify the lack of qualifications that Donald Trump has to be a commendable president. November 8, 2016, will forever be a pivotal moment in American history. The voters will need to made an informal decision to elect Donald Trump as our president of the United States, and the negative impact continues to flow.
