'Chaos President'

When considering how the government will accomplish essential outcomes, several characteristics coincide:

  • Stability
  • Collaboration
  • Consensus
  • Bipartisanship

The first essential outcome is economic security, and that is undermined by risky behavior and chaos that describes Donald Trump.

Today's news is about the necessity of having a showdown with North Korea. Trump's strategy is as transparent as his books filled with one-liners.

The Trump approach begins with confrontation and taking a stand. He just told China that he wants their help in reining in North Korea's nuclear program, and if he doesn't get the cooperation he wants, the U.S. (he) will go it alone.

Yes, war with Korea is an option, yet militarists are deeply opposed to that choice. It would be catastrophic for the region.

Many better alternatives could be discussed off-line and surely not in Tweets. Can Trump do that? Will Congress be able to control their renegade leader, one who is apparently as rogues as Kim Jong-un?

"Donald, you know, is great at the one-liners," said Bush at the final GOP debate of the year. "But, he's a chaos candidate. And he'd be a chaos president."
