The Last Thing America Needs Is A Fighter In Chief
Today, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who has been plagued by investigations into abuses of power, endorsed the candidacy of Donald Trump for President today. “There is no better fighter than Donald Trump,” Christie said.
Christie meant that as a complement, but I can’t help but regard it an as indictment. Our country has been devastated by the consequences of the violent impulses of the last Republican President, George W. Bush, who was all too eager to fight.
We don’t need a Fighter-In-Chief. Instead, we need a wise and balanced leader who has the ability to regard challenging situations in a nuanced way, and come up with complex, diplomatically sophisticated solutions. Donald Trump is profoundly ill-equipped to provide us with this quality of leadership.
Donald Trump is very good at picking fights. That’s why he will not receive the support of responsible adults.
