Worrisome President

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARYT DECEMBER 26, 2018

         THE STOCK MARKET HAS FALLEN MORE THAN TWO THOUSAND POINTS SINCE IT’S HIGH OF JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO. PRESIDENT TRUMP BLAMES IT ON THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND THE DECISION BY ITS CHAIRMAN TO RAISE INTEREST RATES.

         THE PRESIDENT IS UNILATERALLY WITHDRAWING TROOPS FROM SYRIA AND AFGHANISTAN WITHOUT CONSULTING ALLIES AND IN OPPOSITION TO WHAT HIS TOP MILITARY PEOPLE RECOMMEND. HE ALSO HAS MOVED UP THE FIRING DATE OF SECRETARY OF DEFENSE JIM MATTIS TO JANUARY FIRST, REPORTEDLY BECAUSE HE IS ANGRY ABOUT THE POSITIVE PRESS MATTIS HAS RECEIVED.

         ANGER AND INSTABILITY ARE THE PROBLEMS. THE PRESIDENT SEEMS ANGRY ABOUT EVERYTHING AND NOTHING. EVEN HIS CHRISTMAS EVE TWEETS – MORE THAN TEN OF THEM – WERE FULL OF HOSTILITY TOWARDS OTHERS. HE WENT TO CHURCH BUT IT DIDN’T SEEM TO BRING PEACE TO HIS HEART AND MIND.

         I’M WORRIED ABOUT ALL OF THIS AND THE REST OF THE COUNTRY IS INCREASINGLY WORRIED, TOO. ANGER AND CRITICIZING OTHERS ARE NOT POLICIES. THE PRESIDENT AND THE COUNTRY NEED OUR PRAYERS MORE THAN EVER. I’M CAL THOMAS.
