The answer to this question is never. According to Donald Trump, he is going to be the President of the United States for at least the next seven years.

Donald Trump will never stop making headlines when he appoints diehard, dyed-in-the-wool racists to key positions on his staff. He will never stop making headlines when he makes statements that Barack Obama personally likes him. How could you personally like anyone who spent three years, almost on a daily basis, trying to convince the American people that the President of the United States was not born in the United States?

How can you stop making headline news when you say Putin, the dictator over Russia, is a great leader and a personal friend? It is humanly impossible to stop making headlines when you appoint someone like Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser who allegedly had a conversation with key administrators in Putin’s office, discussing security matters.

Information has come to light that the Department of Justice warned the White House last month about Michael Flynn’s untruthfulness regarding his conversations with the Russians. In his letter of resignation, Flynn apologized to Vice President Mike Pence and Donald Trump. He went on to say, “Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed VP elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador.”

How can you stop making headline news when you appoint Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education? DeVos has no clue about some of the longstanding policies and functions of the department of education such as special education rules and policing for-profit universities. She even admitted that she was “confused” when she did not know that the statute governing special education is actually a federal law.

She is a billionaire investor, education philanthropist, and Michigan Republican activist. She has no personal experience with student loans, and she is unfamiliar with basic education terms. During her confirmation hearing, DeVos was asked how school performance should be assessed, and she showed her lack of knowledge regarding the difference between growth, which measures how much students have learned over a period of time, and proficiency, which measures how many students reach a targeted score.

The final thought is, there are three psychiatrists who are employed with major universities. They have stated on several occasions that once Donald Trump starts to speak, it becomes apparent that his brain may not be functioning correctly. In other words, they contend that he has a mental disorder, and have asked him to volunteer to be psychoanalyzed by all three of them.

Employment went up in the last three months. This was two thirds Barack Obama’s doing, and one third Donald Trump. Regardless of how you personally feel about the president, I think that we all can agree that we hope he is successful. If he is successful, then all of us will be successful.
