Williamson: Trump’s Problem Isn’t His Lack of Government Experience, It’s Something Else

WASHINGTON – Author Marianne Williamson, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, argued that President Trump’s “problem” isn’t his “lack of government experience” but rather “his lack of ethics.”

Critics of Trump often note that he was never elected to public office before winning the 2016 election. Williamson was asked for her response to Democratic voters who are critical of her lack of government experience as well.

“I don’t see the problem with the president as his lack of experience. I see the problem to be his lack of ethics and his lack of visceral taste, apparently, for democracy itself. If the president had wanted to bring in fine experts, political experts and mechanics, he could have and he didn’t. And any that he even got close to the job, he got rid of soon enough,” Williamson said at a National Press Club newsmakers event on Thursday.

“Very experienced politicians took us into Iraq and very experienced politicians agreed with the decision. Very experienced politicians took us into Vietnam. Very experienced politicians brought us here. We are naive to believe that all of these problems were created by Donald Trump. Rather all of these problems created Donald Trump. We need to do more than just not go over the cliff. We need to get out of the vicinity of the cliff,” she added.

Williamson explained that she admires “political expertise,” which is needed for “any successful administration” but argued she would bring “another kind of experience” to the table that’s “lacking in other candidates.”

“Franklin Roosevelt, himself, this is the president who led us through World War II and the president who brought us the New Deal and led us through the Depression. Hardly someone who didn’t understand policies and plans, he said that the most important role of the presidency is moral leadership,” she said.

“He said that the administrative aspect of the presidency is secondary. Do we need political experts? The Democratic Party is filled with them and of course we need them there but in a president we need more than a car mechanic but we need one who should discern what road we are on and that’s what I bring to the table,” she added.

  1. If he is having trouble with “something else” such as (quote) ethics, then WHY is he getting FAR MORE done than ANY DEMOCRAT as of late?!? That’s why Marianne Williamson is NOT POTUS material and should not EVEN be considered by THE DEMOCRATS as a presidential candidate. I wouldn’t want that “INCOMPETENT Supreme” as POTUS, as our Commander in Chief holding the NUKE button. She needs to be interviewing Competent people in his staff to get a real opinion. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great again).

    • If Trump lacks Gov’t experience; we don’t have enough space on this page to mention all the things that these Democraps lack……are you seriously for real..????

    • The ethics problem is most likely that the Democraps and RINOs are not getting the amount of graft they want. How else would they become millionaires right after they are elected/appointed?

      • You hit the nail on the head, William. It’s amazing how wealthy these “expert” politicians get, when elected to a “public service” job!!

    • Trump is an unethical bonehead. Everything is about him, and he doesn’t really care about U.S. troops. They are just a tool that he will use for his own benefit. He has also said after 2024 (his last possible year for him as president), he doesn’t care what happens in America or the world. Is this the type of guy we want as president?

      • Mark. Have you ever been in the military? Have you had any family members give there life for this country? Would you give your life for this country. Do you go to church? Was you raise with a mother and father? You have something missing in you brain to write and say what you have said. I voted for Trump and a few good past presidents. Seen a lot of bad ones. I could vote at the Age of 21 I am now 80 years old. Figure it out. Never voted for Obama he in my book was the worst president ever. GBG6130

        • Hurrah Georgine: Bullseye! I too voted at Age 21 in England and read up all I could from both sides and am now waaaay up there in age and saw right through Obama as I did my research on him. He failed miserably. BTW his birth is recorded in the archives in England for all to view. Kenya did not become independent of the U.K. until three years AFTER Obama was born there! Hence his birth is archived in England which may be why it wasn’t found in Hawaii….

    • Indeed, and well stated J.P. Trump doesn”t have a problem, – a nation who ditched faith in God for man-made ‘political correctness’ does.

    • His ethics are top notch. I love that he speaks his mind and genuinely loves America and puts a Americans first. His business experience makes him successful. I support all his policies and all he has accomplished so far. His accomplishments would be even greater if the Dems didn’t suffer from TDS and weren’t constantly trying to undermine his presidency. Dems should be ashamed of the way he has been treated by them and their cronies in the media. Time for you folks to grow up.

    • JoeyP: Trump hasn’t kept any of his promises. He hasn’t brought manufacturing back to this great nation. He hasn’t brought any mining back. He hasn’t brought back ANY coal. Despite his boasts, which are lies, he hasn’t built an inch of new Wall. And he definitely hasn;t gotten Mexico to pay for it! The fakir-in-chief hasn’t done ANYTHING!

    • Well said! Trump has achieved more than any other president during the last 180 years, including Reagan and Ike! The fact he does NOT have more political experience is a PLUS! Instead of being some two-faced, forked-tongued political hack, he’s focused on getting things done! MAGA!


  3. I agree with our President on all issues. If the Democrats would work with him instead of against him.Imagine how much we could accomplish!!!!

    • I am for Trump 100% don’t care who knows it, I am PROUD to say HE is MY President. But there is something concerning me, (1) who paid the woman to go away? The guy who paid her to shut up about some groping or sexual thing just told that it was paid out of campaign $ and that WOULD be considered unethical if not misappropriation of funds and that (if true and if Trump knew) he could be charged. (2) This is possibly fake news but . I saw comments that DEMs were going to reverse the action of impeachment (because they know they tried this without due process and that they were going after go after him for the misappropriation aspect). As far as ethically maybe I mean if we want honesty we have to give it right? I understand , when he was younger he appeared to be a lady’s man and it cost him 2 marriages but that was then but still the DEMS will stop at nothing to ruin OUR President. (3) Do you think he would resign ?( Pence would then become Pres. and He could pardon Trump. I am still voting for him if he doesn’t dropout!! PRAY THAT HE DOESN”T!!!!! 2020

    • The Demorats don’t work with President Trump because they don’t want the people to think that Republicans know how to do anything. It is not the Republicans that don’t know how to do anything it is the Demorats that don’t know how to do anything. They can’t even run their own lives without drama or blaming someone else for their mistakes.

  4. I agree with Don. We like the president just the way he is. When something is done that is good for our USA he alwsays says “WE DID IT” not I did it. We are the USA and he includes us in the good stuff.

    • Debbie you have it right. The last president. Never said we it was always I. I,I, that is why I didn’t vote for him. No words about god. Trump always says we and uses God. I know his day and the republican
      Start the day in prayer. Every day. God is on there side and ours. Thank you. GBG6130

  5. Trumps lack of being a push over like all the previous four Presidents that only said what the media wanted to hear!

    Trump speaks the truth and truth is not excepted by liars because it Conflicts with that or thinking! The media is just a bunch of socialist and they do not want to hear about the success of America and its economy and saving it from the chaos the last four presidents have have put in place to destroy it!

    Barack Hussein Obama was a student of Saul ALynski Who hated America and wanted it destroyed that communism could be put in its place.
    The first step of taking over a country is using socialism to beat the people into the mold preparing them for communism!

    I think God for President Trump because he has enough nerve to tell it like it is which is refreshing after the last mealymouth Presidents we had!

  6. You know it’s really Pathetic The way this 2 party system, Continues to distort the Constitution. One of the sayings I love about trump is the fact that is not politically correct, And how is it that the democrats can manufacture lies And accusations, When it’s become very obvious to we the people Have a much better understanding Of what trump meant by straining the swap. I believe that the democrats Orchestrated this whole deal with the Russians over the 2016 election and now We are finding out some of the other Things that they were doing that have been absolutely Illegal, So they do what they do best put up a smoke screen the try to keep the people confused and not focus on their wrongdoings, Of course I can remember the republicans doing the same thing this 2 party system is really shameful, They talk about Ethics and Copability and Yet they refuse to be transparent, And they are the biggest Perpetrators Of all that is wrong in Washington. Trump maybe in experienced As a politician, But I think he is done A very good job since hes been in office, I only wish that we Can continue to keep voting him into office even after the 2nd term because he is it only one that really seems to be intrested in the people in this country and he works hard at keeping his promises Even with all of the resistance that he gets from me other side Way the people love trump…

  7. What so many “experts” and opinionated Demonrats ultimately seem to react to is Trump’s blunt, direct honesty of expression. He does not act like a politician. Politicians, by the very definition of the word, are those who “promise” and rarely deliver. Graffiti on the walls of ancient Rome proclaimed the same displeasure of the citizens with the politicians. What the swamp always hates about Trump, is that he does not play their game, and they cannot control him. And knowing this, it is why they all set out to undermine and destroy him from even before he was nominated.

    • I agree. Drain the Swamp for the sake of all Americans and our future. Term limits for all elected officials. Run the ‘crats out of D,C, altogether. They have become nothing but Parasites on the people..

  8. I don’t care what these anti-Trump Democrats say he the best thing that has happened for this country in many years him and the republicans have done a lot for us just think what could have been done if the democrats had quit fighting him and trying to get rid of him and helped instead by doing what they were elected to do we would have got a heck of a lot more done

  9. Andre Stephenson you must be Kidding! Democrats have no idea what Ethics are, I doubt they can even spell the word let alone know what it means. Name one Demon Rat who is Ethical and don’t even think about mentioning Bill or Hillary, Obama, Michelle, Pelosi, Romney, Schuller, Schiff, Biden, Harris, Warren, O’Rourke, Feinstein, Tlaib, Omar or Ocasio-Cortez just to name a Few off the Top of my Head because none of them have a Clue what Ethics are or even what the word means. Of Course none of them know what Morals, Respect, Fair Play, Truth, Dignity or Honor Means Either so what can you Expect from a bunch of Heathens. And there are Plenty more of the Demon rat Party that could be named but I’ll be here All day and night.

  10. When the liberal democrats talk about ethics they mean politically correct which is the opposite of getting the job done in MAGA which Trump is doing.

  11. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to
    be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions.
