Donald Trump is now our president.

Progressives, conservatives and independents were hoping his negative rhetoric was used only to gain the attention of a certain segment of the electorate. However, the rhetoric during the time he had run for president has continued.

I do not believe President Trump understands the gravity or the magnitude of the presidency. I do not believe that he really wanted to be president. He not only surprised most people, he surprised himself.

His life has been built around developing his business empire. He cannot leave that life. It is his life blood. He has said that he could do both jobs, the presidency and run his business empire.

He must do only one. The job of president is 24 hours per day and seven days per week. If he does not devote all his time to his elected position he will not be able to continue as president. He will find himself in over his head and make mistakes in judgment that could be very dangerous to the welfare and security of not only this nation, but a destabilizing of the world's nation states.

He is not fit to be president. He will ultimately run into serious trouble and be looking at impeachment and removal from office or he may see the handwriting on the wall and resign.

If he decides to turn over much of the decision-making to his vice president, he is still in charge. The vice president cannot make decisions that are in contrast to the president, especially this president.

The vice-president has his own set of responsibilities and cannot responsibly be burdened with taking on actions that are the president's responsibility only. Therefore that scenario is not likely to take place.

As President Harry Truman famously said, "The buck stops here."

I'm afraid the ship of state has entered dense fog and its navigation equipment is dysfunctional.
