Trump presidency lessons

I was going to say 'lessons' learned', but I don't think he or his supporters get it yet.

  • When people question your methods or ideas, attacking them doesn't solve the problem.
  • Lying eventually catches up with you.
  • Blaming everyone else for your problems makes you look weak.
  • You don't need to gloat or belittle your predecessors once you're elected. You won. Now prove it wasn't a wasted vote.
  • You're never going to get other parties to participate in your plans if you keep insulting them.
  • If people accuse you of something, like collusion with a foreign power, assuming it isn't true, the smart thing to do is prove it.
  • Next time you pick a political party to join, don't consider how stupid the voters are (your words), consider how stubborn the politicians are.
  • If you're going to get behind a job creating industry, don't pick one whose days were already numbered (coal).
  • When Elon Musk walks out of your panel, you've done something wrong.
  • Listen to your intelligence community. They know their shit.
  • The people you appoint to positions of authority don't have to agree with you. That's not their job.
