In an editorial entitled “Never again” in the Nov. 11 issue of the Kyiv Post, we wrote that U.S. President Donald “Trump, like all liars, will eventually be exposed as the carnival farce that he is.”
Looking back, we should have written “soon” instead of “eventually.”
The signs were all there, as we noted at the time. Trump is utterly unsuitable for the office he now holds. Barely a month into his presidency, his administration is embroiled in scandal, mired in incompetence, and hobbled by failure.
From his ham-fisted 90-day ban on nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries entering the United States, to his spokesperson’s coining of the phrase “alternative facts”; from the president’s pathetic lies about the size of the crowd at his inauguration, to the resignation on Feb. 14 of his national security advisor, Michael Flynn – Trump has been everything that we expected of him: a failure.
