And the reason isn’t the obvious one.
No, it’s not his vanity, and it’s only partly related to his arrogance.
No, what makes Donald Trump the most dangerous man in the world is that he is utterly untrustworthy, a man whose word means nothing and who will say anything to get his way.
In other words, he’s a unprincipled liar.
And that’s what makes him dangerous.
To Trump, the art of the deal is say whatever works toward his end, and when the deal is done he will brag about the lies he told to get there.
From the Daily Show:
Trump Lets the Truth Come Out Post-Election
While out on his “Thank You Tour,” President-elect Trump smugly admits to lying about his campaign promises to lock up Hillary Clinton and “drain the swamp.”
No foreign leader will be able to trust anything Donald Trump says, and for that reason they will always assume the worst.
And when the stakes are high and the folks on the other side of the table are armed with nuclear weapons, we can only expect the worst.
Scary, ain’t it?
