Listening to and watching President Donald Trump

I hope that President Trump pays much more attention to the imminent threat of Global Warming after what happened in Houston. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and the other brewing in the Caribbean are the worst ever. The terrible attack of Mother Nature on Houston, the oil capital of the world, is a clear message that should motivate President Trump to reconsider his rash withdrawal from the Paris Environmental Accord.   
I hope that President Trump pays more attention to the human tragedies of immigration than to the erection of very expensive walls that will not solve but further intensify the underlying human problem
I hope that President Trump reinforces U.S. bonds with our Asian allies in the confrontation with North Korea, rather than criticizing trade agreements with South Korea
I hope that President Trump stops trying to run the country or decide the fate of the world with the help of 4-5 a.m. twits.
I hope that President Trump stops acting as if he still were a real estate businessman rather than the president of the United States
I hope that President Trump had the elegance of not trying to run the U.S. government with the help of his family. This country has more than 300 million people, many very talented
I hope that President Trump does not listen to Tom Shannon and acts vigorously in Latin America, where a transnational criminal gang financed by Venezuelan oil money has been trying to create a Latin America in the Cuban mold.
I hope that President Trump stops harassing Germany and other European allies, at a time in which the U.S. needs, more than ever before, the cooperation of the European Union
I hope that President Trump selects and dismisses his top collaborators in a different way to the one he used in his TV show
I hope that president Trump realizes that the presidency of the United States is not a trophy to be added to his real state exploits but a great and sacred responsibility that calls for greatness and not for the exercise of strategies common to the business world. In his book: “The Art of the Deal we read: The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big themselves but they can get very excited by those who do. That is why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest, the greatest and the most spectacular.”  This is, perhaps, good real state thinking but not advisable when talking about what to do to North Korea.
For the sake of future generations, I hope that the world can survive this presidency.

The only way to get rid of global warming is to quit using fossil fuels and NO ONE is willing to quit driving (1 billion cars in the world!), using their air conditioning, or curbing their energy lifestyle in any way. The left has no coherent policy to do anything, just a weak, unenforceable plan that establishes carbon credit extortion (pollute all you want, just pay us). Trying to blame this mess on one country or one politician is just creating a scapegoat and a hysteria designed to procure votes for a certain political party. Every time you turn a key in an ignition switch, remember you and your energy habits (and billions like you) are part of the problem. China and India are now massive polluters but are never criticized, nor do they listen to any criticism. The global warming alarmists get rich from books and lucrative research grants, and hop in their private jets to fly to conferences, burning thousands of gallons of jet fuel, and then return to their mansions that have a $2000 dollar a month electricity bill. These are the elitists who will save us? Global warning is you and me times billions. The oil producing countries (like Venezuela) continue to sell their oil to industrialized nations so they can pollute the air with it, yet blame the capitalistic economic system that they are feeding off of for all the world's problems (it would appear that socialism can't really thrive unless there is a functioning market economy in the world that generates wealth to siphon off). Solar, wind energy, thorium reactors, electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cells, these are the ways out of this mess, not scapegoating, bombastic do-nothing hypocrisy for profit, and all the while continuing the status quo because nobody really knows exactly what in hell to do or wants to give up anything.

Y yo espero que, si el mundo sobrevive a la amnenaza norcoereana y a la locura de Trump, no vayan a elegir a un marxista como próximo presidente de USA, como es claro puede suceder, no dicho por mí sino por The New York Times, mejor dicho, por uno de sus colaboradores, en un artículo cuyo link le puse el otro día y no se si lo vio (el link) o si leyó el artículo.

Mr Coronel you sound like a 126 year senile old man that reads and watches and absorbs leftist media propaganda.

Los Marxistas que destruyen al mundo con su locura y estupidez ciegas van a ser decapitados un dia por sus aliados musulmanes. Cierto es. El mundo no aprende nada de los fracasos multiples de esta ideologia y los jovenes no tienen memoria de nada y son faciles a enganar con propaganda llena de mentiras, odio, y promessas vacias.

Mr C. I think you are watching too much CNN.
