Capable leadership doesn’t include Trump

Hardly a week goes by without presidential candidate Donald Trump’s provocative antics capturing the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

From his attacks on his critics and rivals to his inappropriate rhetoric about minorities and the increasing number of reports of ejection of African-Americans and even brazen violence at his rallies, Trump’s behavior comes across as being unworthy of an individual wishing to take the helm at the White House.

At a time when the United States and the whole world needs capable and sensible leadership in the face of escalating economic, political, ecological and security challenges, the need for presidential candidates to behave in a manner that promotes solutions and strategies for a turbulent world has never been greater.

It is glaringly obvious from Trump’s toxic rhetoric the United States – indeed the whole world – deserves a leader better than Donald Trump.
