US President Donald Trump officially used the holidays to “work tirelessly for the American people,” as the White House in Washington announced. In fact, at his vacation resort Mar-a-Lago in Florida, it was probably also about his handicap.
In any case, there were mainly pictures of a golfing man in a white polo shirt and red “Make America Great Again” baseball cap – who took plenty of time between games to leave all sorts of angry and malicious things on the short message service Twitter. Almost as if he wanted to show himself again what handicap means. For eight days, his vacation seemed to be mostly golf and tweeting.
The program was like a feat: Trump expanded the scope of his insults again. This time the target was not only the »fake news«, which he insulted as such – meanwhile almost all media from the liberal »New York Times« to the ultra-conservative broadcaster Fox – and the Democrats, but also his own ranks.
For example, the Supreme Court, for which Trump himself has appointed three judges, was assessed as “completely incompetent and weak.” The current president called the Republican governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, a “complete disaster.” He called the leaders of his Republican Party “pathetic”. And the FBI and the Wall Street Journal got their fat too.
The president, who has since returned to Washington, seems to have completely lost his interest in politics. He still has to endure 20 days before the handover to Joe Biden is imminent. Yet he persistently refuses to acknowledge his competitor’s election victory. Even the newspaper »New York Post«, which has hitherto been one of its busiest and loudest supporters, has meanwhile demanded of the president: »Stop the madness«.
