Short-Tempered & Short-Sighted

Oct 09, 2016

Anyone whose foreign policy mantra is “I love war” cannot be trusted to keep Americans safe. Donald Trump repeatedly proves he’s too immature, too ignorant, and too erratic to be in charge of the U.S. millitary and nuclear weapons.

As far as we can tell, Trump is his own main advisor on foreign affairs. He’s claimed to “know more about ISIS than the generals do” and says he has a “very good brain.” But his bravado isn’t a comfort to American families.

Throughout his campaign, his ego has been a cause for concern as he’s lashed out after even the smallest slight. Trump cannot run America’s foreign affairs the same way he runs his life: short-tempered and short-sighted are not the characteristics voters want for the person with their finger on the button.

Beyond his temperamental issues, Trump’s complete lack of knowledge of foreign affairs, particularly when it comes to nuclear policy, is appalling. Just this week, he appeared to have no knowledge of Yucca Mountain. Previously, he’s failed on questions about the Nuclear Triad, and his go-to solution for dealing with North Korea is to encourage more countries to develop nukes.

If Donald Trump’s campaign advisors can’t even trust him to keep his cool on his Twitter account, how are Americans supposed to trust him with the nuclear codes? Trump is temperamentally unfit to be Commander-in-Chief and should be allowed nowhere near the White House nor the Situation Room.
