President Trump is not a politician. The 45th President of the United States has bragged and delivered on governing our country like a boardroom executive. That has worked in the past – ENTER COVID-19. In usual Trump fashion, Twitter has been ablaze with his commentary. Meanwhile, members of Trump’s cabinet have been on the move – issuing reports and speculations that can prove dangerous to the federal response to coronavirus, and weaken the White House.
On Monday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin suggested that unemployment could top 20% due to COVID-19 and its impact on our national economy. Both CNN and MSNBC jumped on this headline with vigor – plastering it all over their newscasts. The Liberty Loft has reported the liberal-media and their endless efforts to illustrate an “End of Days” scenario for our country. It is time for our country’s Chief Executive Officer to act more like the Commander-in-Chief.
President Trump, like any successful businessman, surrounds himself with the most brilliant minds available. POTUS and his administration tout industry and national competence against a traditional swamp of lifelong political insiders that are too far removed from mainstream Americans. However, despite their intelligence and consulting, it is time for Trump to take on this national crisis, front-and-center, and completely disallow interior individuals to make exterior comments.
The Power of Presidential Voice
Between 1933 and 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who spoke with familiarity to millions of Americans about the promulgation of the Emergency Banking Act in response to the banking crisis, the recession, New Deal initiatives, and the course of World War II. On the radio, he was able to quell rumors and explain his policies. His tone and demeanor communicated self-assurance during times of despair and uncertainty. In essence, FDR was able to squash misinformation and provide both action and policy updates directly to the American people. During the crisis of war, FDR was able to bring the American people together by his direct-talk and reassurance.
Over the last several weeks, the “mainstream media” has flooded the airwaves with “Doomsday” scenarios, causing mass hysteria. Grocery stores shelves lay bare; markets have spiraled, unemployment has spiked, and our nation fears a national quarantine. During the last several press conferences, our nation’s President seems removed from the policy and discernment of HIS ADMINISTRATION – this cannot continue!
During any administration’s tenure, no President can handle every item of business. However, now, our nation is faced with how to control a virus one-billionth of our size that has killed not only our citizens but also our everyday way of life. President Trump has used unorthodox and often combative communication tactics on social media – this has worked in the past. Now, our President and our People must speak INTIMATELY and REGULARLY about the current state of our country. Where we are and where we are going must come from our Commander-in-Chief, not from CNN newsdesks who are hell-bent on ending his presidency, and the American “Way of Life.”
