Stop tweet­ing, Trump

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Marc Raim, Bal­ti­more

For over a year, I feared that Don­ald J. Trump, ab­so­lutely the least qual­i­fied and most emo­tion­ally volatile can­di­date ever to be nom­i­nated by a ma­jor po­lit­i­cal party, would win the pres­i­dency. After he, in fact, did tri­umph, I have been cau­tiously op­ti­mistic as his man­ner and speech as well as his poli­cies have def­i­nitely started to tran­si­tion from that of a can­di­date to a pres­i­dent-elect.

How­ever, Mr. Trump’s ap­par­ent ad­dic­tion to Twit­ter and his base­less and ir­ra­tional com­ments con­tained in his tweets are ex­tremely dis­turb­ing (“Drama, dis­putes and false­hoods roil Trump’s tran­si­tion to White House,” Nov. 28).

Per­haps, Mr. Trump should hire an aide to stay by his side and whis­per in his ear: “You ac­tu­ally won the elec­tion. You re­ally will be in­au­gu­rated in seven weeks, and tweet­ing is now be­neath you.”

If this is done, Mr. Trump will have more time to at least at­tempt to pre­pare him­self for a job for which he is presently, at best, only par­tially fit to oc­cupy.
