Letter: President should try diplomatic approach
I respectfully request the president’s cabinet members inform him of the difference between diplomacy and its opposite meaning.
Diplomacy: The conduct by government officials of negotiations and other relations between nations. The art of conducting such negotiations. Skill in managing negotiations, handling people, etc., so that there is no ill will (aka tact).
Apparently, the president has chosen the opposite of diplomacy — that is, tactlessness, ignorance, bad manners, impoliteness, rudeness and I might add, confrontational. His being a narcissist and egotist and a pathological liar doesn’t help matters either.
The way out of the current darkening climate facing this nation is to take a bold step and impeach our dangerously unhinged President Trump and replace him with a rational public servant before we find ourselves in a catastrophic scenario that could culminate in a life-ending nuclear conflagration where there are no winners.
Diplomacy is worth a try, Mr. President, to “Make America Great,” because your current efforts might Make America Extinct. The situation is that serious!
