All presidents have an oversized ego, or they would not even run for office. The idea that one man or one woman alone can take on the responsibility of this great nation takes a lot of confidence in oneself. That is why our country’s founders set up three co-equal branches. In their wisdom, they set up checks and balances against the leader of the free world to keep him from moving from the presidency toward a king or a dictator. Out of Donald Trump’s abuse of power and unpresidential power arose a movement.

Trump is kicking off his 2020 re-election campaign in Orlando, Florida. The Orlando Sentinel reminded the nation again that it does not want a monarch. Its editorial board wrote:

‘Enough of the chaos, the division, the schoolyard insults, the self-aggrandizement, the corruption, and especially the lies. So many lies — from white lies to whoppers — told out of ignorance, laziness, recklessness, expediency or opportunity. Trump’s capacity for lying isn’t the surprise here, though the frequency is. It’s the tolerance so many Americans have for it. There was a time when even a single lie — a phony college degree, a bogus work history — would doom a politician’s career.’

The paper’s editorial board continued raking Trump over the coals:

‘Not so for Trump, who claimed in 2017 that he lost the popular vote because millions of people voted illegally (they didn’t). In 2018 he said North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat (it is). And in 2019 he said windmills cause cancer (they don’t). Just last week he claimed the media fabricated unfavorable results from his campaign’s internal polling (it didn’t).’

The newspaper showed just how much of a dictatorial threat Trump has been and will continue to be:

‘Just landed – a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!’

Trump has way over-stepped his position on numerous occasions. The situation the Sentinel noted was especially bad. He wanted to hurt AT&T, because the company owns CNN. POTUS does not like this network:

I believe that if people stoped (sic) using or subscribing to @ATT, they would be forced to make big changes at @CNN, which is dying in the ratings anyway. It is so unfair with such bad, Fake News! Why wouldn’t they act. When the World watches @CNN, it gets a false picture of USA. Sad.’

The paper warned the country about one profound moment:

‘This nation must never forget that humiliating public moment in Helsinki in 2018 when the president of the United States chose to accept Vladimir Putin’s denials of Russian interference in the 2016 election over the unanimous assessment of the American intelligence community. Such a betrayal by a U.S. president would have been the unforgivable political sin in normal times.’

As far as the 2020 presidential election, Trump does not have the Orlando Sentinel’s endorsement. As its editorial board said, “The nation must do better:”

‘The nation must endure another 1½ years of Trump. But it needn’t suffer another four beyond that.’
