My answer to Why doesn't everyone just leave President Trump alone (March 2017)?
Answer by Desmond Last:
Why? He’s a big boy he can handle it. You do not become President of the United States of America to run a Nation of Poeple who accept everything you say. It is not the United Kingdom.
The U.S has a robust defense of its democracy and no doubt President Trump welcomes the opportunity to put forward and implement his vision for America to a People who will let him know if they do not approve.
The U.K is so swamped with half-truths and outright lies and weighed down with an outdated democracy that most people will accept anything – it is too hard to do anything else.
I would rather have Trump who will listen – as proven by the Steve Bannon era – and if he does like what he hears take it on board until proven wrong then Theresa May who is locked in her Ivory Tower and will not listen to anybody.
If I were an American I would be proud of my democracy. Here in the U.K I an ashamed of it. May and the British Establishment stifle debate or try to ‘bury it’.
President Trump is doing ok. Apart from of course Climate Change and Drugs.
But that is only because he has not had the opportunity to listen to my new ideas!
