Newton’s Third Law

Trump always said if some hits you hit them back harder.  Although I start writing about Newton’s Third Law (for every action there is equal and opposite reaction), Trump has 70 years of life’s experience in hitting back at anyone who questions or differs with him.  He is from New York and a real estate developer, and is an old man with life’s experience of hard knocks and hitting back, and more so rebuilding (building and rebuilding) again and again.  No one must like him or dislike him for who he is, as he is the president of the United Sates, and people put him there.  To complain, to keep trying to make him something he is not or doesn’t want to do, is impractical, especially given that he is the most powerful man on earth, leading the USA.

Only referring to previous presidential behavior as presidential is history, and much has changed with each presidency and its time and place.  From Washington to Obama, times are very different in between each president’s time in office.  We certainly are a part of the world that has become more accessible and more violent with each given time and opportunity.

Trump is the 45th president of the USA.  Only 44 men have been in the place he is today, and people supported the election.  He won fair and square according to the US Constitution.  He is not from a political lineage and has no policy experience, nor he was ever surrounded with policy makers.  Trump is not a man of patience and politics.  He simply decides and tries to throw that thought on to the public.  His impatience with political maneuvering and conscious building is non-existent.  He is only supported by the Republican party which was unsure of his words and policies before he got elected, and a clear majority of them are still not sure of the same even after his election, but they support the party’s platform that Trump represents.

Trump doesn’t really care.  He strikes back, and furious about things that doesn’t suit him or his plans.  He has an added burden of his family in the political and business mix.  He loves to say what he feels (always served his purpose), he loves to keep his family around (he always did) and he is impulsive in his actions and words.  The added platform for him is the social media, which he uses constantly to communicate unfiltered comments.  For the president and a man of 70 years, it is impossible to start to be someone different.  Both his age and his position are not something, that someone can provide presidential guidance.  There is no such thing as presidential and Trump is the president and what he is doing in the office is presidential.

America First, is the main verse in every presidential manifesto.  Trump makes it his stump.  Which is a worthy political choice for any politician running for public office.  Each of the presidents implement and find ways to place the nation first, and if we remove the political rhetoric, there is no doubt that all the 44 presidents prior to Trump were all nation first, and people first.  When the nation (or perhaps the world) starts to understand what we have is a president who reacts differently to what the world (anyone) responds to him, then his actions will be accepted as presidential.  We are after all a nation that works on laws.  If we continue to see the president react to each action that (he may or may not like) then just get used to it, as in his time in office, that is what presidential exactly means.


Newton’s Third law:
When one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body.
