If only. You've got a geriatric prat who acts like your uncle who hasn't figured out the correct dosage for his medicine, and who has become the world's chief Twitter troll. Oh, and he also commands half the world's nuclear arsenal which he can decide to use all on his own (no, really, unlike in the UK where at least in theory Parliament must OK a first-strike nuclear attack, the U.S. President can override any reservations against the use of nukes).
It may sound like age discrimination, but people his age shouldn't be in charge as their country's top political leader anymore. The best age bracket to be a country's leader is between around age 40 and 60, where you have enough life experience to make mature and level-headed decisions (again, ideally and in theory), and where your cognitive capabilities are still up to scratch. I read something about a study once where they tested different age groups of people for basic cognitive skills and judgement. The poorest performers in these tests were the age groups of 12-16 as well as the over-65s. Indeed, the over-65s tended to have even poorer judgement than many in the 12-16 group.
In other words, there just might be 15-year-olds out there who would be a better choice to be U.S. President than the Donald.
