The first Republican observers at the Potomac river are about to smooth their criticisms of Donald Trump.
Maybe they have their eyes on some of the 2000 top-jobs when he is elected.
“He will change”. “Now he is like this, later he will have learned.” and so on.
Having been involved in the nuclear strategic community for three decades – including Washington DC – my analysis of Mr Trump is crystal clear:
He is totally unqualified to get his hands on the nukes. If he would be a solider, his commander could have blocked him from any access.
Donald Trump does not have the political know-how, nor the sensibility, nor the style, or the character and the temperament to be close to the button.
He is more a danger to the free world than a saver.
Look into the files of the Cuban missile crisis. What would have Trump done instead of John F. Kennedy: bomb the Soviets out?
There is a real danger ahead: North Korea is working hard to minimize a primitive nuclear device and put it on a missile warhead. For sure we all need a red line to stop it, but is Trump the right man at the right time for this delicate job?
He talks a lot of bombing the IS but he never explained his strategy. Questions like: “how many US soldiers should be sent to Iraq and Syria” or “How to integrate the Sunni tribes in Iraq” have not been answered by him.
Any new president has to act and waste no time.
Can America afford to have an apprentice as Commander-in-Chief?
A man full of hate and anger near the button?
An emotional ticking time-bomb in the Oval Office?
He likes Putin, but does he know the man in the Kremlin is very good in judo and without any mercy with beginners like Trump?
Trump knows how to insult, but does he know how to form alliances? Or strengthen friendships? With the Arabs against IS?
Any American who votes for Donald Trump should only ask one question:
“Would I give Trump a nuke into his hands and feel good”?
