It's not his job to micromanage every problem in the US. His job is to point out areas where the US is failing and delegate the task of solving those problems to the government civil service.

Problem is that most civil servants in place today were hired during the Obama and Clinton years and are woefully incompetent.

America please impeach or vote out this cretin in the next election.

False flag - nobody is accusing Trump of micromanaging. Try again, lol

And back to reality. This author appear to be unable to distinguish between career government type who actually do create and perpetuate problems from CEO type who causes problems to be fixed and relatively quickly

CEO type who causes problems to be fixed and relatively quickly

Donald Trump doesn't appear to be one of them. He just seems to cause problems and claim that he's fixed them when in actual fact he hasn't.

Trump the dumper and president MEGAGOB. Disrupt and put nothing in its place.

Create some type of crisis or emotional moment, solve it by backing off, move on to the next one (turn in next week to find out)....

This is governing by reality TV show standards, designed to increase ratings - it's not effective or good governance.

The US government is not "The Apprentice", but our Impostor President hasn't the intellectual ability to realize that...

Time for Trumpers to understand that before this Dimwit tries to up his ratings by causing a war with Iran in which thousands could be killed.

Send him back to his TV studio, the one next to "The Kardashians"...

What does this ay about the 40%+ of Americans that voted to make a reality TV hack their President?

This man is making America Great; a great circus and the laughingstock of the globe. This man will lead the world into another war and US citizens don't know how to control him.

Congress voted yesterday to strip him of his power to declare war unilaterally. Mueller testifies before Congress next week. He may be implicated in the Epstein scandal. Link to the video deposition by “Katie Johnson” detailing her “social” interactions with Trump and Epstein, in 1994, when she was 13 years old.  http://bit.ly/2NJy2e6 (29:00)

It's funny how no presidential candidate ever says that in their election campaigns then, isn't it.

So these civil servants were hired under Clinton, then they left for Dubya's 8 years, came back for Obama's 8, then hung around for Trump? Sounds legit. If only there were a more obvious reason for the incompetence of the Trump administration....

Gee, can't think of one... no, hang on, there's a clue in the photo at the top of the article....

If the past 2 and a half years are an example of what he means by making America great, heaven help us for the next 1 and a half year.

The self proclaimed “genius” isn’t. The current occupant of the White House is a complete farce and the biggest threat to U.S. national security and global stability.

My parents were immigrants. This is use has divided my home. I’m fully for finding who’s who. Why not? Isn’t security in great part achieved by knowing who our neighbors are? We have IDs for a reason. We don’t want illegals in our midst, get them jobs and security at home. Who’s responsible for wealth imbalance? Peace will not come within US borders, it’ll come at home, wherever it may be.
