A President must be able to write laws

I tried to say this in my book, How to Select an American President by James A. George with James A. Rodger (c) 2017 Archway Publishing. A President's job is to create and amend policy by turning it into actionable legislation. Trump isn't equipped to articulate solutions at a sufficient depth to solve problems and to convert solutions into operational systems. He failed to select the right staff to accomplish that. He doesn' know the federal government business nor the process.

"Painting the President as a political neophyte who has only been in Washington for two months, the source said Trump has become "frustrated with his staff's inability to get this done" and argued that Trump was misled by those staffers who urged him to tackle Obamacare head first and hitch himself to Ryan's plan. 
"He was talked into doing this bill first. It was not negotiated well on his behalf," the source said. "He's relied on his staff to give him good information, and they haven't. And that's the problem." 
The source close to Trump described a president who felt bamboozled by Ryan and his own staff, duped into thinking that passing health care would be the quick victory he needed to make good on a campaign promise central to his election and push forward on other policy fronts."

You must start by having studied the problems and needs of the nation thoroughly before shooting off at the mouth.

Congress must be in the business of doing something and not just defenestration.
