Don­ald ducks

The Sunday Times - - World -

I re­fer to US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s duck­ing many of the ques­tions put to him by the press and the blame he’s al­ways shift­ing to oth­ers.

What hap­pened to the plaque used by past pres­i­dents that stated “The buck stops here”, or the speech by JFK that we should “ask not what your coun­try can do for you, but what you can do for your coun­try?” Trump has re­versed that. Coun­tries are as­sessed by their lead­ers. Three of the last four Amer­i­can pres­i­dents were draft dodgers, yet they had no qualms about send­ing oth­ers into harm’s way, and the lat­est is ca­pa­ble of start­ing World War III.
