CEDAR FALLS --- Our country needs a president who brings people together to accomplish national objectives. Instead, we are more divided. Why? Our current president is obsessed with a need for others to acknowledge his self-perceived super-human qualities. He does spend a lot of presidential time using social media. And then he says what his followers seem to want him to say. Unfortunately, little of what he does really provides long-term solutions. He only respects "winners" and lacks real empathy for "losers."

His followers are led to believe societal problems are due to people who are "different" from "us." Blaming others provides temporary satisfaction but only fosters anger. Individual differences are really a source of strength, not weakness or danger. He promotes himself by verbally attacking others whose qualifications/media attention might rival his own. This leads the public to distrust and even fear other leaders. Presidents do have the power to create their own realities to some extent. Our president is subject to delusional thinking, where there is confusion between what is real and what is hoped for. Either way, his leadership has been harmful to our country.
