I would say he has the same understanding and interest in policy issues as his fan base. That's one of the reasons they love him. The British had a nice nugget that summed up the attitude perfectly:

"Wogs begin at Calais."

Actually, the quiz is cheating. Sometimes Trump quotes the others. Donald Trump Quotes Mussolini And Says “What Difference Does It Make?" He's done it more than once.

All of the other autocrats are more articulate than Trump.

Or, perhaps, you are refusing to see the corporial entity in front of you? Trust me, I don't want to believe it either! But, I am a creature of evidence, and the evidence (as I've noted earlier, and you've not disputed) is overwhelming.

Under George Bush the United States was directly attacked, relations with our allies soured, we engaged in a war that had no basis in reality, incompetent and ideological jurists were elevated to the Supreme Court and the economy tanked as a direct result of the policies he pressured. And he, at least, has been a Governor. Trump is far less experienced, less interested, less competent, and more prone to dangerous utterances unrelated to the real world. Can we really expect his presidency to fare better? Based upon what evidence?

In six months Trump has done more to tarnish American values and reputation than Bush did in 8 years. We won't make it to the midterms without disasters and deep wounds. Can you name A SINGLE positive thing he has done for the nation? Just one. I'll wait.

DT took US out of the Paris accord. A great feat I wish he will follow up on in other areas.
We've talked about this some time ago and the evidence is just piling up that CO2 is no threat to the climate, mankind cannot influence climate, the small changes measured are all natural variation.
All claims to the contrary are research fraud, fake news and propaganda.

That's certainly a discussion stopper. And you think that science supports your beliefs?

I would be interested in a discussion about how folks decide on what the "best" science is and what the motivations are to believe one theory over another.
