Several years ago we were in Italy on a vacation. Silvio Berlusconi was their Prime Minister. He could be a clone for Donald Trump. He was a wealthy businessman who ran for office and won. The people were dissatisfied with the leaders who were in office. Berlusconi ruined the country in a short time. He made appointments of people who would work for him, not necessarily the best qualified. Sound familiar? Ever time I see Trump on the news he looks like a deer in the headlights. I hope he will be a good leader but right now he is not staying with the promises he made during the run for office. He has changed or back-pedaled on most of the promises. As Americans we all need to hold his feet to the fire. Not just those who voted for him, but everyone. He is a big fan of Twitter. Contact him and let him know what you expect. He doesn’t care about the media but he does care about public opinion.
