President Trump keeps violating rules of good manners and presidential decorum. He did it before he was president and this was already bad enough but he is still doing it after being president and that is tragic
Two further examples:
After the Department store Nordstrom decided not to buy his daughter’s jewelry and clothing on commercial grounds, due to its poor sales, President Trump went on Twitter to say:
My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!
When the president says that Nordstrom is unfair, I am sure many of his followers will boycott the store. He is, therefore, using his office for the wrong purposes.
After the judge he nominated for magistrate of the Supreme Court said that Trump’s twitters about judges were “demoralizing” and “disheartening”, President Trump attacked the senator who had met with the nominee and called him a liar. He did not attack the message, he attacked the messenger.
This lack of elegance and ethics now extends to his closest collaborators. Ms. Kellyanne Conway, one of President Trump’s senior advisers, just said the following in a TV interview, in reference to Nordstrom and Trump’s daughter:
"Go buy Ivanka's stuff," Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, told Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy. Ivanka Trump has a "wonderful line," Conway added. "I own some of it. I fully, I'm gonna just going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today everybody. You can find it online."
Again, this is wrong. This lady, in a very high government position, is plugging a commercial brand on television, in a program in which she was acting in her official capacity as Trump’s senior adviser.
This is not the way a president should behave. The Court of appeals just rejected, 3-0, his executive order on the Muslim Ban. He simply twitted a rejection of this decision, while some of his followers already speak of a politicized Judicial System in America. One of the institutions that should be protected and respected by the Executive Power is the Judicial Power. When this respect begins to fail the country is in danger.
While this pitiful drama develops the real political enemies of the United States: North Korea, Russia, Syria, Cuba, Venezuela, are sitting by ring side, enjoying it.
