Donald Trump recently vented through social media by questioning President Barack Obama’s mental health, because of his handling of the Ebola crisis. One reason for ridicule is that Obama will not stop flights to and from West Africa from entering the US, despite a growing number of inquiries to do so from members of Congress. But then again, maybe The Donald is wrong on this one. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has argued that sealing the borders could actually undermine the effort to track the sick and stop the spread of the disease. Nevertheless, The Donald said his experience as a savvy businessman means he is able to understand people better than most, no matter what side of the argument they are on. However, in this case, he cannot seem to understand the other side of Obama’s reasoning.
In the past, the White House had said a czar was not necessary, but now they have retracted that statement after being criticized that US hospitals are not truthfully equipped to handle an epidemic such as this. The US government has failed again and again to properly assess this situation and to make adequate and effective decisions that produce positive results in regards to the Ebola epidemic overseas. As the leading authority on buying, selling, and improving businesses, I always qualify the clients I work with so that I am better educated on the most appropriate and effective course of action. Appealing to both the buy side and the sell side of businesses can be quite conflicting and I work hard to be fair to both parties. As a guide in the buying and selling process, my interests always reside with my clients. Why can’t the government work similarly? Before I open my mouth, I make sure I know what I am talking about. Why doesn’t Obama do the same? He’s a casual observer and a good talker whose lack of action speaks volumes louder than his words for educated individuals. The man states the US does not need a Ebola czar, but now that the man has been forced to do his research he is finally facing the facts and has finally caved in to the pressure by naming a political supporter of his as the Ebola czar.
Ron Klain is a former chief of staff to both Vice President Joe Biden and former Vice President Al Gore. He is tasked with protecting Americans from the disease and making sure the response is coordinated with the U.S. effort to stop Ebola in West Africa, but is the man qualified? Why would Obama appoint Klain, who has been serving as the general counsel for an investment company as the director overseeing one of the world’s biggest health crises in history? It makes absolutely no sense, and goes to show just how incompetent the president is at the heart of his administration; and so with that in mind I may have to ultimately side with The Donald on this one…there is something seriously wrong in this political game the president is playing. He should play for the sake of our health. Instead, I am honestly not sure what type of political game our president is playing, since he is supposed to be workingfor us–not playing us.
