The USA government is about governance, not profit.

As his 100-day mark in office approaches, (click here) President Trump admitted Thursday that his new job isn’t quite all it’s cracked up to be.

“I thought it would be easier,” Trump said in a wide-ranging interview with Reuters that covered a variety of topics, such as his longing for life prior to the presidency as a business mogul and the possibility of a government shutdown.

The former billionaire tycoon conceded that he thought the presidency would be a much simpler task than that of his former work in real estate.

"I loved my previous life. I had so many things going. This is more work than in my previous life,” he said....

All those populous point of views are hubris and very victimizing. Hardly the truth.

The facts are plain, the USA can always be improved on and to that end it is good to have at least two parties for elections, but, for the waste and fraud there is a very complex set of agencies, employees and rules.

The USA government is about national defense which a CEO rarely worries about. The investments the American people make are important and can't really be toyed with to trim some cost here or reduce budgets there. The USA government is as diverse and complex as its people and its states that have rights as well.

Many of Trump supporters wanted to change the country's rules overnight. The budget was going to be tamed and all issues reduced to simple dynamics and resolved. President Trump the leader of a very volatile group of constituents was sincere to them, the problem is they had measured the country, its structure, infrastructure and governance wrong. The USA is not a kitchen table or a curvy couch. It is a magnificent country developed over 240 years.

It is incredible to realize that 240 years ago a group of colonists, hard as nails, fought a guerrilla war as well as a traditional war against a powerful dynasty and won their freedom from colonialism. They were incredible people. They were statesmen and women dedicated to their own idea of freedom and governance. They, no different than their populous electorate today, wanted to be ruled by no king and paying no more taxes.

The USA is very different than its original 13 colonies. Those people from so long ago would not recognize the country they fought for, but, would be proud of the result of their constitution.

Freedom is elusive and can be lost far easier than it was gained. The freedom provided by our constitutional relatives is still here. We have many liberties. We can develop an economy and make it run. We can rise up against oppressive dictates within our country and demand they all be changed to bring in fairness and equity. That is incredible and a perfect dynamic that survived 240 years. That is no mistake and the checks and balances of this democracy guards this country at every turn.

I am not surprised this populous president has an awakening to the power at the top of the Executive Branch. There is no doubt there is incredible power. There is the power of life and death within the reaches of the USA military. For that reason alone there are checks and balances that bring equity to the people, protections of their constitution and their liberties.

While the dream for this electorate was to transplant the power of "The Apprentice," with Trump's children at his side to protect the power to move forward, it is far more complex than judging the outcome of a project.

At some level I believe President Trump threw his hat in the ring because he could bring change that would benefit Wall Street outcomes and return profits to companies that are waning including majestic hotels and casinos. I am sure Wall Street, especially the financial sector, believes the government of the USA is hideous and bloated. I am sure President Trump is no different than many that line Wall Street and believe the government can be cut and curtailed and reduced. "It can be handled." The fact is "It can't."
