Daily Mail was running a headline "Trump wipes billions of Amazon" (excuse the young new age internet journo who is reliant on a spell checker).

 

Sub-headings included "He sent the stock price plunging, wiping more than $5 billion off its value and 1 billion off the person (excuse the young new age internet journo who is reliant on a spell checker), personal worth owner Jeff Bezos.

 

So why my tongue in cheek reply? I suspect that Trump believes he is the epitome of a keyboard warrior. And do you know what concerns me most? The stock market reacted to his two tweets. And the younger keyboard warriors will follow.

I believe Trump lacks the intelligence, dignity, grace or humility to resign.

However here's an opposing view:

Trump Will Resign, Says 'Art Of The Deal' Ghostwriter Tony Schwartz
By Catie Keck, International Business Times
http://www.ibtimes.com/trump-will-resign-says-art-deal-ghostwriter-tony-schwartz-2579710

"The ghostwriter of President Donald Trump’s 1987 memoir 'Trump: The Art of the Deal' claimed that the real estate mogul - only six months into his presidency - would soon resign. Tony Schwartz wrote on Twitter Wednesday that 'Trump is going to resign and declare victory' before Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Congress 'leave him no choice.'

Schwartz, a journalist and the CEO of The Energy Project, criticized the president in a string of tweets that claimed the 'circle is closing at blinding speed.' He predicted that Trump’s tenure at the White House would be cut short amid an ongoing investigation into Trump associates who allegedly colluded with Russia to influence the electoral process during the 2016 presidential election.

'Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and congress leave him no choice,' he wrote Wednesday afternoon. 'Trump's presidency is effectively over. Would be amazed if he survives till end of the year. More likely resigns by fall, if not sooner.'

Just a few hours earlier, Schwartz had taken to Twitter to criticize the president’s leadership and his pattern of publicly castigating those who fail to meet his expectations.

'Think of Trump as a toddler w/ reactive attachment disorder, and therefore in a permanent virulent tantrum. His development ended at age 7,' he said. 'Remember that every time Trump criticizes and demeans someone he is projecting his deep sense of inadequacy & self-hatred onto others.'

Schwartz has been an outspoken critic of Trump both on Twitter - his account boasts 108,000 followers - as well as in interviews. During Trump’s presidential campaign, Schwartz revealed himself to be Trump’s ghostwriter after the then-Republican candidate declared that the United States needed 'a leader that wrote ‘The Art of the Deal.’'

'Many thanks Donald Trump for suggesting I run for president, based on fact that I wrote The Art of the Deal,' Schwartz tweeted June 16, 2015. 'No plan to accept a draft.'

In a damning interview with the New Yorker that was widely cited, Schwartz told the magazine that he regretted having penned the memoir for the billionaire businessman.

'I put lipstick on a pig,' he told the magazine. 'I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.'

He added, 'I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.'

Wednesday evening, Schwartz had another message for his followers that seemingly doubled down on his tweets from earlier in the day.

'Trump must be isolated,' he wrote. 'Resistance every day. The end is near but must keep pressure high.'"

Fred99:

 

In One Tweet, Donald Trump Just Spread Fake History, Libeled a Hero, and Admired an Alleged War Crime.

 

+1  From the same source:

 

 

Trump is careening out of control. He says what he wants, when he wants, and neither truth nor consistency nor wisdom nor prudence dictates a single syllable that comes out of his mouth.

 

By many accounts he’s taken to directly defying his advisers simply for the sake of declaring that he’s in charge.

 

This isn’t leadership. It’s a collection of temper tantrums. Unfortunately, those tantrums have consequences.

The Guardian - Trump responds to Barcelona attack by reviving debunked myth

 

 

The tweet echoed a highly controversial claim Trump made at an election rally in South Carolina in February 2016, in which he talked admiringly about a counter-insurgency in the Philippines conducted by Gen John Pershing between 1909 and 1913, when he was governor of Moro province.
