He's an absolutely pathetic leader. His entire Presidency has been built around trumping up this catastrophic piece of shit and he doesn't even have the stones to fully implement it.

“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
