Robert Reich: 'He is no longer president. The sooner we stop treating him as if he were, the better'

Fire, pestilence and a country at war with itself: the Trump presidency is over
by Robert Reich

A pandemic unabated, an economy in meltdown, cities in chaos over police killings. All our supposed leader does is tweet

In reality, Donald Trump doesn’t run the government of the United States. He doesn’t manage anything. He doesn’t organize anyone. He doesn’t administer or oversee or supervise. He doesn’t read memos. He hates meetings. He has no patience for briefings. His White House is in perpetual chaos.
.........

Trump’s nonfeasance goes far beyond an absence of leadership or inattention to traditional norms and roles. In a time of national trauma, he has relinquished the core duties and responsibilities of the presidency.

He is no longer president. The sooner we stop treating him as if he were, the better.

Trump Postpones G-7 Summit

“President Trump said Saturday that he will postpone until September the annual Group of Seven meeting of world leaders, which he had wanted to hold in-person by the end of June at the White House as the administration tries to project a return to normalcy amid the coronavirus pandemic,” the Washington Post reports..

“But German Chancellor Angela Merkel had declined Trump’s invitation to come to Washington for the meeting, citing concerns about the pandemic.”

“Trump also said he plans to invite Russia, South Korea, Australia and India.”

Said Trump: “I don’t feel that as a G-7 it properly represents what’s going on in the world. It’s a very outdated group of countries.”

Ted Lieu: Stop making things worse. We need a healer, not a divider.

@tedlieu
Dear @realDonaldTrump: The American people are hurting. We need you to listen to what the people are saying. And we need you to try to calm things down. Except you are doing exactly the opposite by being divisive. Stop making things worse. We need a healer, not a divider.
