At the U.N., Trump showed his total unfitness for U.S. presidency

President Trump’s speech to the United Nations again illustrates his arrogance, ignorance and disregard for what is really at stake on the world stage. (“In first U.N. speech, Trump derides Kim Jong Un as ‘Rocket Man’ and threatens to ‘totally destroy’ North Korea,” Sept. 19)

His referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as “Rocket Man” is irresponsible. His continuous bullying tactics put the world at risk for another war. This man has clearly shown on many occasions that he does not have the ability to be an effective leader, and yet in the White House he stays.

The United States is much better than what the world sees and what we are allowing to continue.

Years from now the Trump administration will be seen for what it is: the buffoon presidency. His name will be synonymous with total incompetence.

But should Trump manage to use nuclear weapons, his very name would go down with Attila the Hun or Adolf Hitler. He would be known forever as a curse upon humanity.

If so, the only people who could have stopped him, the Republican Party, will be reduced to a footnote in history that cites the irony of having produced both the greatest American president and the worst.
