    Sometimes it seems that POTUS is a question of brand loyalty. I'm still trying to decide whether to vote for Coke or Pepsi in November. Maybe Bud Light will come into play, because I'd vote for him in a New York Minute. Right Don? (Henley)

    Although Jimmy Carter wasn't a great president he was largely a victim of circumstances beyond his control and unlike Trump he actually had the courage to make the right decision knowing that it would hurt him politically. Historians had considered Andrew Johnson and James Buchanan the worst presidents in US history. Thanks to Donald Trump they're now second and third in no particular order and they may not even be close to the worst. Using one of the Donald's favorite expressions, Trump is so bad you wouldn't believe.

    Ask the hostages in Iran for 444 days if they were victims of circumstances beyond their control and the courage he had to make the right decisions.

    Carter may have failed as a president, but was still an honorable man. Trump fails at both.

    Carter had the courage to approve a high risk mission to free the hostages. Tragically it failed. Also keep in mind that virtually no one expected the take over of American embassy in Tehran to turn into a hostage situation. Rather than acting as a willing participant in a blatantly illegal act the assumption was that the host country would act in a civilized manner and free the hostages. And let's not forget that unlike the current US embassy in Baghdad, in 1979 no US embassies were designed to be impregnable fortresses.

    Better to keep the thread on topic. I don’t want to respond again and shift the topic.

    Agree. Getting back to the topic, Trump's decision to withdraw from/defund the WHO is another example of the Donald diminishing the role of the US as a leader in the international community.

    And China is going to fill that role. Someone on here said they've pledge $2B just a number of days ago, that is after $30M in April.

    Is he then going to then complain about them trying to take over the WHO as he pulls the US out in a temper tantrum?

    Quite the deal maker.

    And Trump is a known liar who has a pattern of bankrupting his own company leaving others to clean up his financial messes. How anyone ever trusted this guy is with the world's most important economy is simply baffling to 99% of the nations of the world and approximately 50% of this nation. Republicans and Russians are the only people defending and aiding him.

    Self awareness isn’t a strong suit for some on here. Some more than others.
