Experience or talent- Trump confronts his second term
Posted by: Steve G.

Asked by Sean Hannity for his second-term agenda, Trump replied, “Well, one of the things that will be great — you know, the word experience is still good. I always say talent is more important than experience. But the word experience is a very important word. ... Now I know everybody, and I have great people in the administration. You make some mistakes, you know, an idiot like Bolton.” The president did not mention a single proposal policy, or priority. He did not indicate whether Rex Tillerson, James Mattis, H.R. McMaster, John Kelly, Dan Coats, Scott Pruitt, Ryan Zinke and Tom Price were great people or idiots.

You really should post an attribution - I know you didn't write that - I read it elsewhere

That part of the Hill compendium links to an MSNBC piece, which notes:

“The president's campaign website does not feature an issues page listing any plans or blueprints for the future.

“Even the Republican Party's 2020 platform is just the 2016 platform recycled.

“In August 1979, then-Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) was gearing up to run for president and he was expected to do quite well. His plans ran into trouble, however, when CBS News' Roger Mudd sat down with the senator and asked, "Why do you want to be president?"

“Kennedy struggled mightily to answer. The damage to his candidacy was considerable: the public saw someone who wanted the office, but had trouble saying why.

“Forty-one years later, Donald Trump -- with no vision, no interest in governing, no platform, no policy agenda, no ideas, and little meaningful understanding of events unfolding around him -- was asked about his priorities for the next four years.

“As we discussed the other day, at this point in the campaign, we'd ideally see a battle of ideas, with the major-party candidates critiquing each other's agendas, highlighting their flaws, and promising a better way. Except in 2020, that's effectively impossible: Trump hasn't presented any ideas to assess.”

His campaign being bereft of ideas is actually as his supporters wish it to be. They’ve never wanted him to actually do anything, while claiming he’s done so much.

If he wins, at least it will be easy for him to say that on his very first day he accomplished everything that he claimed he would do.

He won't have to struggle with those pesky details like trying to get Mexico to pay for a wall.
