Congressional members are publicly stating President Trump is not legitimate. Former President Obama supports mass protests, and mainstream media is in an outright battle with the Presidency. It has been two months since Donald Trump was sworn in as our 45th President. Members of Congress, political pundits, and major media outlets have been relentless in impeding or slowing down cabinet nominations, encouraging dissent, challenging executive orders and promoting conspiracies. Every presidential nomination, every executive order, every White House action is examined through a lens of negativity and disruption. At the same time, the president himself is not absent of fault. Tweeting on issues before all the facts are available, condemning large swaths of the media as dishonest and fake, and poor communication and execution of executive orders.
All of this has created a hostile atmosphere with little objectivity or popularity. It is an unfortunate state of affairs, and these actions to many American’s are shameful and irritating. But at some point, someone must lead. And who that is should not up for debate.
