Memo to Donald Trump

72 years ago, as you were beginning your life, the Battle of the Bulge began. It was the bloodiest battle of WW II. American losses: 19,000 killed, 47,000 wounded, 23,000 missing. You need to get a lot smarter, get off Twitter, develop some impulse control, become more nuanced, value America’s Intelligence Community, and get “briefed” daily. If you don’t, you just may lead America into conflicts far bloodier than the Battle of the Bulge.

Experience matters

When you’re not adequately prepared for the job, bad things happen. Trust me I know this from a very personal perspective. Trump does’nt seem capable of managing the transition from campaign to actual governing. Thank you New York Times for your report and lead headline, “Firings and discord put Trump transition team in a state of dissary.”
