6 Reasons Why Donald Trump Will Never Be as Great as FDR

Ara is a Journalism graduate from California State University Northridge who is always looking to explore his writing opportunities.

Donald Trump Versus FDR

President Donald J. Trump is once again very much a part of the American pop culture scene. Actor Alec Baldwin portrayed him again on an episode of Saturday Night Live on the night of December 3, 2016. However, the objective of this written piece is to show the reasons why Donald Trump will never be as great as Franklin D. Roosevelt. Please note that at the time that this article was first written, Donald Trump had not taken the oath of office yet. Note: as of July 2020, an additional reason will be added to this article thus here are six sufficiently explained reasons why Donald Trump will never be as great as FDR. Below are six reasons that demonstrate why Trump will never be as good a president as FDR.

Reason #1: His Overuse of Twitter

We now have a President that loves to use Twitter and he uses it so much that I refer to it as his overuse of Twitter. An article titled “Trump Tweets SNL is Unwatchable after Sketch about His Tweets” by Jillian Sederholm was published on the online edition of NBC News. The article is about Alec Baldwin mocking Donald Trump and making fun of him as he turns to the use of Twitter.

The sketch features then President-Elect Trump seated inside of Trump Tower with Kellyanne Conway (played by Kate McKinnon) as he is being questioned during a security briefing but he loses his focus and turns to using his mobile phone instead! As he brags about the latest greatest tweet, one of the advisers in the sketch informs him about the seriousness of the security briefing, the fact that Pakistan has become increasingly unstable, and that North Korea is working on its nukes again. Trump in the sketch asks questions which have nothing to do with the issues. Just an hour after the end of the sketch, the real Donald Trump came on Twitter and wrote a tweet “calling the show unwatchable and biased," (Sederholm 2016).

Donald Trump Has Become Very Much A Part Of American Pop Culture

The reason that this event is significant and part of American popular culture is because the sketch is trying to show Donald Trump’s fascination and love of Twitter as he tweets in order to criticize and demean those that point out his flaws and mistakes. Donald Trump is very much a part of pop culture not only because he “won” this year’s 2016 Presidential Election but he has always been in the public eye and with his Twitter rants, he shows that he is not very presidential at all.

I believe that Alec Baldwin is mocking Donald Trump to try and bring awareness to the American public at how unfit Trump is for the American Presidency. The sketch also shows that in a way, Donald Trump cannot live without Twitter and this social networking giant has been a tool that he uses to go after his opponents.

Reason #2: Trump Has Zero Political Experience and Low Approval Ratings

Through his use of Twitter, Donald Trump has expressed his views about certain things while even making spelling errors. For instance, do you remember that time where he was supposed to write the word unprecedented, yet he wrote “unpresidented” instead? How is it possible that a now 74 year-old businessman, real estate guy and father of five can make such obvious spelling errors?

This is one of the reasons that he will never be like the great FDR. Franklin could have at least done spelling much better than this rich, spoiled New Yorker! It was Trump who mentioned during the campaign that he would be the greatest jobs president since FDR. That is a very tough task considering that “The Donald” has absolutely zero political experience.

I warned about the dangers of voting for Donald Trump but now that he is set to take office on January 20th, he will go into Washington DC having the lowest approval rating for his transition team in the history of the Gallup Poll. According to a poll that was done by Gallup, 44% of Americans approve of the way that the transition team is handling things while 51% disapprove of this. This is terrible news for Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Rex Tillerson (if he is approved), and Steve Bannon and the rest of that team. It takes a certain kind of knowledge to have if you want to bring more jobs back. Donald is a businessman but the Presidency of the US is not like a business and it certainly is not a reality show.

Note: as of April 26, 2018, Mike Pompeo is now Secretary of State. Before this appointment, he served as the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from January 2017 through April of 2018. He replaces Rex Tillerson.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Reason #3: He Lacks the Personality and Character

The third biggest reason why Donald Trump will never be as good as FDR is because even though his proposed Muslim ban is similar to the way that FDR put Japanese Americans in internment camps, Donald Trump does not have the personality or the character of an FDR. It was FDR who rose to popularity by way of his radio fireside chats. He took the time to meet with people in their homes and to listen actively to their concerns. Donald Trump will not do this simply because he does not care about us. He will only care about his rich buddies and friends while the average person in the Rust Belt States will be left to care for themselves. He may have meant well when he sent that New Year’s message through Twitter but he also ended up insulting over 54% of those that did not vote for him in the General Election. A cardinal sin in politics is if you call those who didn’t support you “enemies,” Donald Trump will only draw more division and anger across this country.

It was FDR himself that gave a speech in 1936 in which he warned about the dangers of what he called organized money. He said: “We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob. Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me — and I welcome their hatred,” (Tognotti 2015). The Trump nominees for his cabinet are like a mob of men who are very much insiders. Although Donald Trump vowed to “drain the swamp” during the campaign, he is part of the problem. I hope that we do become an economic giant like we were after World War 2 but it will be extremely tough and slim to do this with a man of Donald Trump’s caliber. Donald Trump will never be another FDR because he is simply too busy using his mouth to hurt people like actress Meryl Streep who did not even mention his name on the night of the Golden Globe Awards. FDR would never have done such a thing through the radio because he had a good heart and he cared about people! Donald Trump even went after Bernie Sanders calling him a socialist and communist. He also said that Sanders would tax people at 90% and take away everything. Sanders would have only taxed the richest of people in this country. The bottom line is that Donald Trump proves that he has no clue what he is talking about and shows himself to be a big ignoramus.

Reason #4: Donald Trump and the GOP Don't Care About Those in Need of Help

And the final reason why Donald Trump will never be like FDR is because he is thinking of repealing Obamacare (The Affordable Care Act). This is a program that Mr. Obama and his cabinet spent so much time trying to pass just so people in this country especially me that has cerebral palsy can have access to health care. FDR introduced Social Security which is something so many of our seniors require in order to live. We also have Medicare and Medicaid which that fool Speaker Paul Ryan wants to privatize. If they repeal Obamacare, they will end up throwing 20 or 30 million people under the bus! This is not something to be proud of. Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, losing your health care means that you will have to cover the cost of any medical expenses from your own pocket!

Donald Trump will not be as great as FDR but he will most likely become a president worse than any in US history and he may be judged by historians as the worst only to be tossed into the ash heap of history. Most of the Midwest and South who voted for Donald will see after about two or three months that he will not do anything for them. The answer is to resist this unqualified, spoiled businessman from New York while remembering what America is good for. The United States used to elect honorable men as President of the United States but that will not happen until at least 2020 or god forbid longer. FDR is a man who had character, heart, tenacity, and a willingness to help those in need. Donald Trump will only help his family, closest friends and his ego!

Reason #5: He Shows No Real Sign of Being a Leader

Let us add yet another reason why Donald Trump will never be as great as Franklin Delano Roosevelt. That reason has to do with the fact that it is being reported that he was out golfing yesterday August 4, 2019 while this country was still busy recovering from the incident in Dayton, Ohio. It shows that he is showing no real leadership even though he did address what happened in Texas and Ohio however, this gesture will be seen only as lip service. If Trump wanted to show leadership, he could have at least tried to reach out to the people that have suffered as a result of the incidents in Texas and Ohio.

Reason #6: Bad Handling of the Corona Virus Pandemic

This last reason may be the clearest example of Trump’s failure and why he will never be as great as FDR and this reason has to do with his response to the COVID-19 pandemic. I know that FDR came onto the political scene at a totally different time but had there been a pandemic in his day, he would not have botched the response to the pandemic as badly as Trump has. Before some of you try to point out that this is biased and exaggerated, let me explain that what you are about to see here is actually factual. Vox reports that at a rally in South Carolina on February 2020 Trump accused the Democrats of politicizing the corona virus! Nothing could be further from the truth. Here is the rest of what Donald Trump actually said about what he called the “new hoax: “One of my people came up to me and said “Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia, that didn’t work out too well. They couldn’t do it. They tried the impeachment hoax that was on a perfect conversation. They tried anything, they tried it over and over, they’ve been doing it since you got in… And this is their new hoax,” (Peters, 2020). There is no hoax involved here when you have over 143,000 Americans now dead because of this pandemic. I could go on and on but the response by the Trump Administration to the biggest health problem affecting the world has been absolutely abysmal.

Donald Trump Ranked as Worst US President Ever

Update: it is now November 2020 and not only will Donald J. Trump not be as good of a President as FDR was but he has now been ranked as the worst president ever according to a survey by CSPAN, which polled 91 different historians. Historians ranked these presidents by judging them based on categories such as economic management, international relations, and crisis leadership. In this survey, Trump was ranked as worse than James Buchanan. This is just one survey but it shows how far Donald Trump has fallen and cemented his place in history as the worst president ever.

I noticed you had written about it. I just kind of skimmed through it but will be happy to take a look.

Ivan Hernandez on February 04, 2018:

He has over 20 million followers, and every follower is listening to Trump. They are blinded by his rage. I want you to take a look at my latest article Called 5 reasons Why the stock market will Fall in 2018.

It's in this link.


The 2018 is cut off. Sorry about that.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on February 03, 2018:

Yes I heard about the stock market going down. As for Robert Mueller, even if he is fired, the word is that Congress will more than likely intervene and reappoint him as an Independent Counsel, a more powerful position than he has now. Trump would be a total imbecile to even consider firing Mueller. What other idiotic things will Trump do? He might just have more Twitter tirades which will only boost his ego.

Ivan Hernandez on February 03, 2018:

Paul Ryan is back, and I fear that Robert Mueller may not be around for much longer. There was a lawsuit against Mueller, but DOJ wants to nullify it. Also, did you hear the stock market going down?

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on January 25, 2018:

Yes, I know that some Democrats are conservative. What I was trying to point out when I meant conservative is that I was referring to conservatives such as Ann Coulter or Sean Hannity. People like this are on the far right in terms of many issues and it is Sean Hannity that has the audacity to call former president Barack Obama a "sick person." I have never been able to really adjust to the fact that Donald Trump is in the Oval Office. There's a good chance that I may never be able to adjust to him and if that's the case, so be it.

Ivan Hernandez on January 25, 2018:

Thank you. I'll tell you a secret. Normally, Republicans are conservative, but I'm a Democrat and I am conservative. Doesn't really fit the bill.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on January 22, 2018:

I am doing pretty much the same thing. I really do enjoy writing on Hubpages (for the most part) and I've even expressed my thanks for it). I really also like the fact that you can communicate with other writers and to put your work out there. The issue that I see with those that have conservative/right wing views is that they don't want to admit that others may have different opinions than them. These people are very rigid, often times analyzing points from one perspective and when that's all they see, the other side isn't visible to them. If someone wants to support the Republican/Democratic/Independent party, that's their choice but I also feel that disagreements about politics or whatever subject should be civil. Ana Navarro who is a political commentator for CNN is a lifelong Republican but she knows about how flawed of a person Donald Trump is. That's the kind of conservatives we need in this country. Thanks again for offering your perspective. I am thrilled to see this article finally getting some views!

Ivan Hernandez on January 22, 2018:

Earning money for a living and Being friends with people and keeping myself busy.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on January 21, 2018:

It is also the first time in US history that a government shutdown has happened when one party controls the entire government (the presidency, House, and Senate). This is unprecedented, yet in a way embarrassing at the same time. If you recall, Donald Trump during the campaign asserted that "I alone can fix it" referring to this country's problems. So much for that fix. The only thing he has managed to do is to sign a tax legislation which is said to benefit mostly high income earning taxpayers. Meanwhile, someone like me has to write articles, constantly keep myself busy, and look for work wherever I can find it. One of the reasons that I write on Hubpages is to raise awareness of what is going on in this country. If you don't mind me asking, what's one of your main reasons for writing on Hubpages?

Ivan Hernandez on January 21, 2018:

Sorry. I thought 99% meant total control. Well, look who fixed my mistake?

Also, this economic rise is accelerating, yet the President's approval rating is 36 percent!!! Not my expectations of a good president. In fact, Trump is the worst president ever.

We have gone from greatness to sh*tiness in only 2 years. This is the first time that a government shutdown has happened during the anniversary of a presidential inauguration in history. Donald trump is the only one who could get us out of this government shutdown, and he's not willing to let that happen. I heard that Donald trump simply can't take no (or yes, I don't remember) for an answer.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on January 20, 2018:

Yes, Charles Schumer has blamed Trump for the shutdown. In regards to 99% of the government being in control of the Republicans, actually the statistics look something like this:

Senate has 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats

The House of Reps has a total of 435 members with 192 or 193 Democrats and something like 240 GOP so that's the math part of it. The GOP does control the government but it may not be that way for much longer. A lot will depend on the 2018 Midterms.

Ivan Hernandez on January 20, 2018:

Reread my Articles



I said in the first link that 99% of Congress would be controlled by Republicans in December 2017 in 2018, and I was right. If you look at the updated second article, I made a callout, mentioning that I predicted an economic shutdown, not a government shutdown. I called this the Trumppocalypse. The Minority leader called this the #Trumpshutdown. Reread the articles, in that order, and tell me what you think.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on January 20, 2018:

Yes, all of them are better than Donald Trump. The thing is I heard today that the president called the government shutdown "a nice present from Democrats." This is yet another reason he won't be as good as FDR. Who in their right mind would actually want a government shutdown? And what do you think Trump supporters would likely say about this? My guess is that they would blame the Democrats for the shutdown. What is your best guess?

Ivan Hernandez on January 20, 2018:

I don't know. If I gave you an opinion, I'd be lying. Besides, Even if Oprah doesn't make it, the other two might. Anyways, all of them are better than Trump, isn't that correct, Ara?

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on January 20, 2018:

I think a lot of the talk about Oprah running for Pres. will help the ratings on the news get higher which leads to more $$$ for the news networks. It is a big marketing tactic as well. I think Senator Cory Booker may be a better fit to run as the nominee than Oprah. He is also African American but since he's a man, even if there's something "bad" discovered about him, people won't pay as much attention to it. And Bernie Sanders is also mentioned as a possible 2020 nominee. Bernie excited a lot of people however there may be questions that may arise because of his age. He will be 79 by 2020. Also, since Sanders is Jewish, would the country be ready for him? That's a tough question. Bernie has the appeal and charisma plus he is a very decent man who would really look after the middle class (something Donald Trump would never do). Maybe Bernie Sanders in 2020? What do you think?

Ivan Hernandez on January 20, 2018:

I would have to agree with you. What if, in the 2020 elections, Donald Trump tries the same tactic on her as he did Hilary? Then we're screwed. I agree. Even The Rock (Movie star, former wrestler) is a better option over Donald Trump if he ran. I just think it's a risky move. What if we get Oprah as president, and she turns out to be a rotten apple.

NAH!! NO WAY!! Oprah's too kind-hearted to go the way of Trump. And Trump calling people of color and sexual orientation "sh**hole" people makes me hate him even more.

Oh, and remember the part about the 99% of the government being under Republican rule in my last article? They've succeeded in creating the ultimate republican mega country. These people will not stop.

To answer your question, yes, it is a huge risk. Overall, the chances of Oprah making the run is slim to none.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on January 20, 2018:

Yes, Oprah Winfrey is a name that has been in the news recently. I do approve of Oprah trying to make a run for president. However, it is also a risky move on her part. She is a woman and there's still lots of misogyny in this country because women candidates are judged more harshly than men candidates. We just had Hillary Clinton make an unsuccessful run for the presidency and look at all the qualifications, experience, and skills she had. I'm still a little skeptical about Oprah's chances of winning even if she were to get the nomination. There are still a lot of men who would resent a woman calling all the shots. Sure, I would absolutely vote for Oprah over that Donald Trump any day. I would even vote for Scarlett Johansson if she ever ran. It has gotten to the point where we are apparently seeing a rise in celebrities trying to run for public office. But back to Oprah, yes I would absolutely vote for her but nominating her is a risk. What do you think?

Ivan Hernandez on January 20, 2018:


Read that Donald Trump Tweet. Tell me what you think?

There's a government shutdown happening. Donald Trump is cracking the government apart. In fact, he has irreversibly shattered it.

There's another Celebrity that wants to run for president. Her name is Oprah Winfrey. Oprah is both dark-skinned and a woman. Moreover, she wants to run against Trump in 2020.

Do you approve of this, because I'd take anybody over Trump at this point. I'd take David Arquette, and millions others over Trump any day.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on January 15, 2018:

Erick: first of all, I'd like to say THANK YOU for understanding my viewpoints and listening to me and being polite. With that said, I think that Trump didn't really want to be president. He just ran for the office for publicity. He wasn't going to be the president of all Americans. My best guess would be that he has such a big ego that he can never be the president for all Americans. His ego won't allow him to. I really miss Barack Obama now.

Ivan Hernandez on December 23, 2017:

Nope. No idea why. If I gave you an idea or theory, I'd be lying.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 22, 2017:

Actually, one common thing that he has tried to do is to say that any news organization that tries to point out his flaws/mistakes is considered fake news while any news organization that praises him and says how great he is doesn't get that kind of backlash. I at least attempted to give this guy a chance for a short while to see what he would do but as soon as he made it clear that he wanted to repeal Obamacare even without a replacement, I knew I could not support him. He said during the Inauguration that he would be the president for all Americans yet he shows the exact opposite now. Do you have any theories as to why this may be the case? Just curious.

Ivan Hernandez on December 22, 2017:

AHA!! THAT'S WHAT I WANTED TO HEAR!!!! A True Anti-Trumpist back up my claims. Trump has Stolen our America for nearly a year, and it's up to us Anti-Trumpists to take back our America. WE WILL NOT LET THAT B*TCH DESTROY OUR WAY OF LIFE!!!! LET'S SAVE AMERICA!!!!!

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 22, 2017:

The thing is that while I was leaving my feedback, it was taking a while for me to comment because my PC is an old one and it sometimes slows down. Nonetheless, I believe the Resistance (those of us that have opposed Trump from the start) will ultimately outlast this Administration. They can't deny the fact that Paul Manafort is now under house arrest and will more than likely head to prison. Steve Bannon is out of the White House and George Papadapolous pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his contacts so there is no way any of them can deny this. They may not allow the information to process but they can't deny any of the above. FDR has solidified his place as one of the best Presidents while Donald Trump has already hit rock bottom in that category in less than 1 year!

Ivan Hernandez on December 22, 2017:

OK, I'll tell you what. Don't comment there. Comment on the other political article, titled "America: A Horrible Place To Live In Because of Trump. Don't let Brad, nor the other extremist Far-Rights, tear you down. Remember, I can handle controversial articles and controversy a lot more than most others (on a good day). There was this one time where all my anger just pooled into my head, and I exchanged words with him for a long time, and it brought so much anxiety that I just stopped commenting. Don't be afraid. Face your fears. Read my RemedyGrove article while you're at it. Then comment on the article in question. Remember, don't forget to comment on my other political articles.

I know it is illegal to promote other articles in other people's articles, but will you do it?

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 21, 2017:

I've commented on there a few times already. I'm not sure I'm even ready to do it again though. Let's see if others can contribute as well. I may do that if I'm ready to do it. This is the one big issue about political subjects: everyone wants to express their views their way and anyone that says something negative or critical about______________ party they just throw a tantrum about it. I've noticed this mainly with the hardcore right wing people. I'm not quite ready to write another comment on that article.

Ivan Hernandez on December 21, 2017:

First of all, thank you for your opinion on this issue. Second, I would like for you to go to my "10 reasons why Donald trump should be removed from presidential office" article and give your opinion there. I made a few updates. just be sure not to attract Brad's attention. He can get a little feisty with me.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 21, 2017:

First of all, only the individual mandate will be repealed not all of Obamacare. No doubt that Vladimir Putin made sure that Hillary Clinton didn't become president because he was scared of her. He knew that she would stand up to him so of course he was working behind the scenes to make sure his buddy Donald John Trump somehow won. I don't like him either but he is still in that Oval Office. Hopefully he'll be gone by 2020. Wow! I did not know that this article would get this much engagement! Feel free to share this article with anyone who could use some more understanding of the issue. The only "good" thing Trump has done so far is to fill in that last Supreme Court vacancy which should have been filled by Merrick Garland but stupid Mitch "I'm from Kentucky" McConnell did everything he could so that the Senate didn't even vote on his confirmation! That's the biggest travesty other than the fact that we have a BAD president now. If Gerald Ford is the accidental president, then Donald Trump is the Russian puppet President. I know that Trump supporters will look at the article as a bunch of left wing talking points but I could care less about them. Most Trump supporters are stuck in their own little world where facts don't matter. Thank you for contributing to this discussion! Let me know if you ever need anything. I'm here to lend my voice to whoever can be helped.

Ivan Hernandez on December 21, 2017:

Trump won again. The tax bill has been passed, meaning the Rick get richer while the poor get poorer, and that's exactly what I said in the other article. Obamacare has also been repealed. Trump is vastly worse than Obama and Hilary would've made a great woman president were the f*cking Russians not hacked into her email account and sent them to Wikileaks, thus ruining her reputation. Now, we got a Russian mob boss-like dictator instead of an actual maternal president. I HATE TRUMP!!!!!! I HATE EVERYTHING HE DOES!!! F*CK HIM!!!!!

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 16, 2017:

So sorry to hear that. I have not been able to adjust to this President either and I tried to give him a chance and see what he could do but I have not been able to. I'm tired of him as well. If only he would have just stopped acting like an immature baby on Twitter he might have been an okay president but he is just getting out of control. Let's hope and pray that Mueller can get to him fast.

Ivan Hernandez on December 16, 2017:

Net neutrality is gone!! I am waiting to pull the freaking trigger on my 27th article. And I am no longer able to contain my anger anymore. I am tired of Donald Trump and his "disease" spending across this country called America (or what Trump would like to call The United States of Trump).

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 09, 2017:

I am confident that Mueller will do his job. It would have been one thing if Donald Trump hadn't fired James Comey but because he did this, that's why a special prosecutor was appointed. Mueller will slowly expose Donald Trump and he will finish off whatever is left of his crumbling presidency.

Ivan Hernandez on December 09, 2017:

The 911 terrorist bombings may have been bad, but the las Vegas shootings were worse. George W Bush did all he could that day, while Donald Trump DID NOTHING DURING VEGAS!!! Mueller better fire Trump. He better.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 09, 2017:

While Trump may try to forcefully manipulate the system for his own plans, he will ultimately fail. There is a system of checks and balances in the USA which Trump can't ignore. As for the impeachment part, if Robert Mueller discovers more stuff which he will, he can somehow force Trump to resign and if that happens, there will be no need for an impeachment process. If Trump is under enough pressure, he may crack and just give up. This is a man that has had something like 6 bankruptcies so anything is possible. He will be remembered also as having been president when the worst mass shooting in American history occurred. I hope that historians will do their job and rank him at the bottom. I have to make this point again to emphasize that even George W. Bush wasn't this bad no matter even if he had tried to be.

Ivan Hernandez on December 09, 2017:

I have autism. In 2017, I predicted that America will have the worst year ever, and IT ACTUALLY CAME TRUE!!! It only took 8 months and 24 days for it to happen. First Harvey, then Irma, which affected Miami with 90 mph wind gusts. I was squarely in the hurricanes eastern side. And then Maria and Las Vegas, not to mention Sutherland and the October 2017 California megafires, and the December 2017 Los Angeles superfirestorm. The weather was Trump's fault for not believing in climate. Ir took me 6 months just to get over it. I really do hope that Trump gets impeached before democracy completely breaks down and becomes a dictatorship. I see usa becoming just like Cuba during the 59 Castro Regime. Communist or dictatirship.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 09, 2017:

Erick: your'e welcome. I have Aspergers which is a form of autism so certain things are harder for me to deal with. At first I was shocked to see Donald Trump win a national election but after some time passed, I began to finally understand why he "won." I actually always thought during the campaign that the only way he could win is if the Republicans stole the election and Vladimir Putin did that work for them because he hated Hillary Clinton and used his powers to make sure that she did not win all the while the Republicans were asleep and did nothing when 17 of our intelligence agencies warned that the Russians were working to undermine America's democracy.

Ivan Hernandez on December 09, 2017:

In 2000, the Simpsons predicted that Trump would be president. In 2016, after the Nice, France attacks, I had a psychic vision that predicted trump winning. In 2016, I had an article, showing what could happen if Trump won. The prediction came true.

Ara, thank you so much for your kind words. It means a lot to me.

Ara Vahanian (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 09, 2017:

Erick: with your comment this morning, that made my day better. I have been having all kinds of trouble dealing with this Donald Trump Administration. Sometimes I will be awake until a late hour anxious about the country's future. With people like yourself, there is hope for this country. Please keep on advocating what is right and just. I hope that we can have a much better President sooner rather than later.

Don't worry. I have that under control. I have a plan. I will expose these trump supporters for the frauds that they are.

Erick Hernandez: I also wanted to mention that try not to reason too much with these Trump supporters because they will never believe what you say while trying to discredit your points. They seem to think that he is the greatest guy in the world who will improve their lives all the while ignoring that he is attempting to take away their health insurance through this proposed tax legislation. Let me know if there is any way I can help you.

Can you comment on my article, please? I know it's against the rules.

Erick Hernandez: you are so right about this! Donald Trump should be looked at by historians as being the worst president ever. I also proudly supported and voted for Hillary Clinton. We were cheated out of a good presidency because of the Electoral College and the fact that Vladimir Putin interfered in our democracy. Donald Trump most certainly does not act like a Christian at all. Your mother was wise enough to warn you against voting for him. I've lived through the administrations of 6 former US presidents and none of them have been this bad. Even George W. Bush was never this toxic. At least he knew how to do this job and he was smart enough to know that Russia could not be trusted. Donald Trump is a pathological liar, conman, and a guy that has a history of abusing women and it is really sad that so many people voted for this fool who doesn't know how to do the job that he is supposed to do. Thanks once again for your comment!

Donald Trump is the worst president ever!!! I voted for Hilary. In 2015, my mom warned me not to vote for him, as he could be the next Antichrist. He certainly is the next antichrist.

Read my article. Comment on it.

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez: thank you for commenting on this article. I had heard Trump say during the campaign that he would be the greatest jobs President since FDR. But you are right, he will more than likely be the worst US President ever.

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez from Philippines on July 06, 2017:

I can't believe Trump said he'd be better than Roosevelt! More likely, he can emerge as among the worst presidents the US has had.
