Also, China flew a nuclear bomber across the sea as a show of strength.

I'm having a hard time believing he won't do something so blatantly wrong that congress will have no choice but to impeach him. He has zero self control.

He's used to being a smart, strong-arming business executive.  One thing he doesn't seem to realize is that, in world politics, the people on the other side of "the boardroom" can actually decide to kill you and all the people you represent and they absolutely have the means to do so.  Nuclear escalation is a thing we've seen before and unless someone blinks, the world dies.

The Presidency and DT are just not a good fit.

Anyone can decide to point a gun at his own head and pull the trigger.  Sane people never do that.  Only crazies and zealots do.  Deciding to kill all of us is deciding to kill all of themselves too.

Someone was going to blink in '62.  It didn't have to be Khrushchev.  But it was, and the nuclear missiles getting deployed 90 miles away went away.  You can't be a world leader by being a pussy.  The atom has been split.  That's the way it goes. Doesn't mean we have to duck and cover every time some tyrant tries to push us around.

All I'm saying is that they stakes are much, much higher than anything he's ever been involved in before.  And it's not just nukes, it's the country's and the world's economy.  Not just the financial welfare his own and one or a few other business entities.
