Donald Trump is now, officially, running for President in 2016. With all the buzz happening with the Republican, questions arose about Trump’s diplomacy capability, or lack thereof.
Donald is known for his outspoken, hold-nothing-back demeanor. You’ve seen in many cases that he’s excessively judgmental. Trump even has a show where he gets to fire people so the world can see.
That’s fine for non-political life. However, when stepping over into such a sensitive arena, Donald would need to pack on the filters. Can you remember a time when Trump was ever “politically correct”? There’s a reason why that phrase is coined as such.
Diplomacy is, likewise, correctness and sensitivity — which is not a character trait Donald appears to exhibit. Oxford Dictionary offers two definitions of the term.
- “The profession, activity, or skill of managing international relations, typically by a country’s representatives abroad, and
- The art of dealing with people in a sensitive and effective way.”
Sure, Trump definitely has the “effective way” down. But it’s harsh, straight-forward and non-diplomatic. And such a countenance won’t sit well with other countries — nor many people of this country. It’s one thing to watch his commentary for entertainment. However, it’s another to watch it jeopardize this nation’s stability.
Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell had a spat back in 2006. Instead of him handling things in a sensitive way, he kept to his own brand of delivery. Entertainment Tonight reports the public interview, where he gave his unfiltered thoughts about the talk-show host.
“It’s not the chubbiness. Rosie is a very unattractive person, both inside and out…
… If I were running The View, I’d fire Rosie. I’d look her right in that fat, ugly face of hers, and I’d say, ‘Rosie, you’re fired’.”
As reports NBC News, Trump has mentioned that he’s going to be firing back at and roasting other Republicans, as well. He’s not “taking one for the team.” He’s out for himself. In an interview, Donald mentions that Republican Jeb Bush shouldn’t even be in the running.
“I think Bush is an unhappy person. I don’t think he has any energy, and I don’t see how he can win.”
According to the same source, it reports that 74 percent of Republicans say that they won’t support Donald Trump. While diplomacy may not be in Trump’s personal nature, it is a huge part of the United States’ foreign relations nature.
Moreover, he’s not even being forthright in his actions from the start of his 2016 Presidential campaign. As the Inquisitr reports, Trump paid people to cheer for him during his campaign announcement.
Regardless of any antics Donald pulls, he’s cool to watch — entertainment-wise — yes. However, as a presidential candidate, he’s simply too much of a hot-head. And his ego would be too much for the United States and its people to bear in that particular office. He’s already highly offended the Hispanic community with his recent words about “Mexican rapists,” has he not?
