Since his presidency started, there’s been no shortage of entertainment and I’m really not sure how to feel about that. From the controversial cabinet picks after claiming to want to “drain the swamp”, to the so called “travel ban” he is still fighting for, it just seems to never slow down. The newest “whoops!” coming out of the white house is the “Mar-a-lago” controversy.
Now don’t get me wrong, everyone is entitled to their own opinions on him. Like him or hate him, it is your right and that is what our democracy is all about. Now with that being said, I believe that this recent incident is completely unacceptable.
For those of you who aren’t in the loop on what is going on, Donald Trump was eating at his private Florida resort with the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, when receiving the news about North Korea test firing a missile into the sea, off it’s eastern coast. Instead of moving to a private and secure location, Donald Trump stayed on the patio, where the public had full view. Normally when dealing with countries like North Korea, the president and his team would move to the situation room, or a “Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility” when they are away from the white house. This ensures that no one can eavesdrop.
One of the club members at Donald’s resort named Richard DiAgazio was so close he snapped a picture for his Facebook. He wrote: “HOLY MOLY!!! It was fascinating to watch the flurry of activity at dinner when the news came that North Korea had launched a missile in the direction of Japan,”. He posted this picture:
Mr. DiAgazio also posted a photo of himself with the military aide that carries the nuclear codes. Sadly, we are so used to incidents like this with Mr. Trump, that it will be swept under the carpet. I gotta give it to him though, the guy certainly knows how to entertain.
Like I said before, everyone is entitled to there opinions. I believe he is careless and that just may catch up with him. Please do not be shy, let me know how you feel about this! All opinions are welcome, and let’s be respectful!
