    Thumbs up It is impossible to be a Good Leader without being a Good Person !

    Trump isn't our 45th American president; he's our 1st Russian one.

    Trump is a selfish and petty dick.

    The slow-rising central horror of "Watergate" is not that it might grind down to the reluctant impeachment of a vengeful thug of a president whose entire political career has been a monument to the same kind of cheap shots and treachery he finally got nailed for, but that we might somehow fail to learn something from it.

    They all had a change of heart and repented, I’ve not seen the Donald dobthat, yet.
    That’s why I’m so screwed up, because I had a father who pushed me so hard,” Trump acknowledged in 2007, in a brief and rare moment of self-awareness.

    It's interesting that a thread about leadership and multiple folks can only think of one (the same) person in the world. No actual thoughts on what leadership entails and if people we consider historical leaders possess these traits...

    We could think of hundreds of leaders to discuss but take Steve Jobs who led Apple to becoming the most valuable company in the world. How many times have your heard nice associated with his name?

    it is difficult to be a good leader and a good person for example jimmy carter was a good person and bill clinton was despite his personal flaws a good leader

    We have a president who robbed his charity. How low can you go? How about the first days in office, Trump and family looted the money donated for the inauguration. We know what Trump is, and it isn't pretty.

    IMHO, yes Jimmy is a good man, clinton is merely a notch above trump, which aint much...

    Oh pls, you know they would have paid back the money~sooner or later, IF THEY HAD TOO & would have already done so if they knew NY state was serious.....

    Those bribes, I mean "donations" were put to good use, as are the "donations" the criminal organization receives via family enterprise daily..

    LOCK HER UP, LOCK HER UP, LOCK THEM UP, LOCK HIM UP, THEM ALL UP!!!

    That really is weird.

    29Whoever brings ruin on their family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise.

    Why do you bring so much ruin to your family by encouraging them to follow the leftist agenda you believe?

    Acts 9:1 - 19 Saul to Paul

    It has a lot to offer.
