100 days and not much to show. Apart from u-turns on almost every proposal made during the campaign. Not that this were a bad thing.
POTUS45 is not having a fun time. And this is also ok. I hope, his frustration tolerance level is high enough to not come up with something utterly stupid that involves a lot of danger for many people. Like kindling a war somewhere. Just to sidetrack the public from flops in policies back home.
On the positive side: he seems to be a quick learner. NATO is no longer obsolete, to give just one example. I am sure, you follow the comedians worldwide, making a good living of pointing his volte-faces out explicitly. But this also means, he is adapting. To the normative powers of the factual. Non-fake factual, this time.
His daughter Ivanka was visiting Berlin on occasion of the Women 20 Summit recently. Because Mrs. Merkel invited her. Sly move from Mrs. Merkel, who was not so keen on Daddy, by the looks of it. The First Daughter had a hard time at the summit, to explain (and defend) her father at a public discussion at the W20. The audience actually booed her. I can appreciate her pains. She is his daughter, what did they expect? But she is also a summa cum laude graduate, a business woman of sorts and did well for herself, so far. I am not a fan of hers at all (in fact, I wouldn’t even know of her existance, if her dad weren’t POTUS45), but do acknowledge, that all this does not come by itself.
But what I like most is the fact, that there are Summits like the W20 at all. It is high time, that women of all nations come together to talk. And find ways to further the interests of female entrepreneurship in this world.
