Letter: Trump's ego would hinder judgment

Sandra Eccles

I can summarize Donald Trump clearly in three points of view. He is controlling, reckless and listens to no one but himself. Certainly he has advisers around him, but how much credence does he put in other’s advice? He is a one-man band and has been his entire life it seems. His huge ego could hinder sound judgment. Building a Trump empire is not the same as sitting in the Oval Office, carefully listening to advisers before taking any steps toward important decisions which could impact the entire world stage.

Another disturbing thought is that we know very little about this man. What have we learned during the time he has consumed the airways with his loud blustering attitude and rhetoric? There are too many unknowns about Trump. What I have observed is that Trump does not have the makeup of a president at all. He lacks restraint, which is the most important part of a world leader. He lacks the ability or just refuses to listen to anyone. That seems to be the way his mind is programmed.

Regardless of which political party one seems to favor, people are questioning and fearful of Trump’s judgment if he were to have the final say in decision making. That is a very scary thought for me as an American.
