Psychopaths represent about 1 % of the U.S. population. They tend to have no moral or ethical conscience and demonstrate a predatory and parasitic approach to life. Corporate psychopaths are psychopaths who exist successfully in society and work within corporations, usually at the junior and senior management levels. They are characterized as highly career oriented but tend to be ruthless, deceitful, exploitative, and unethical. It is from this proven ground that America’s number one corporate psychopath, Donald Trump, has ascended.
Since the U.S. is the largest corporation in the world, it is no surprise that Donald Trump would seek to be elected as the President or “CEO”. But the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America would be a dangerous endeavor not only to the U.S. but also to the world. Corporate psychopaths, such as Donald Trump, will undoubtedly become destructive to the organization that they work for and to others.
Even though, some corporate psychopaths appear to be smooth, charming, sophisticated, savvy, and successful, they will eventually destroy the organization from within by alienating those people working for him and their partners. They do this by humiliating others, abusing and ridiculing them, manipulating rules and laws to control them, blaming them for their mistakes, bullying and coercing them into doing things that they might not want to do, claiming the good work of others, sabotaging others, and refusing to take responsibility for their own flaws and destructive actions. Finally, they are masters at conning and fooling other people about their supposedly great abilities. They also admire other psychopaths for their power and control over others and have a grandiose belief about their own abilities.
I submit to you the following evidence of Donald Trump’s psychopathic rhetoric as it relates to foreign policy.
Evidence #1 – Alienation Of Others:
China is bilking us for hundreds of billions of dollars by manipulating and devaluing its currency. Despite all the happy talk in Washington, the Chinese leaders are not our friends. I’ve been criticized for calling them our enemy. But what else do you call the people who are destroying your children’s and grandchildren’s future? What name would you prefer me to use for the people who are hell bent on bankrupting our nation, stealing our jobs, who spy on us to steal our technology, who are undermining our currency, and who are ruining our way of life? To my mind, that’s an enemy. If we’re going to make America number one again, we’ve got to have a president who knows how to get tough with China, how to out-negotiate the Chinese, and how to keep them from screwing us at every turn. – Donald Trump
Evidence #2 – Bullying And Coercing Others:
I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words. – Donald Trump
Evidence #3 – Admiration Of Other Psychopaths:
If you look at North Korea, this guy, he’s like a maniac. OK? And you’ve got to give him credit: how many young guys, he was like 26 or 25 when his father died take over these tough generals, and all of a sudden, you know, it’s pretty amazing when you think of it. How does he do that? Even though it is a culture, and it’s a cultural thing, he goes in, he takes over, he’s the boss. It’s incredible. He wiped out the uncle, he wiped out this one, that one. This guy doesn’t play games and we can’t play games with him. Because he really does have missiles, and he really does have nukes. – Donald Trump
Evidence #4 – Grandiose Belief About Their Own Abilities
In the modern world you can’t very easily draw up a simple, general foreign policy. I was busy making deals during the last decade of the cold war. Now the game has changed. The day of the chess player is over. Foreign policy has to be put in the hands of a deal maker. Two deal makers have served as president-one was Franklin Roosevelt, who got us through WWII, and the other was Richard Nixon, who forced the Russians to the bargaining table to achieve the first meaningful reductions in nuclear arms. A deal maker can keep many balls in the air, weigh the competing interests of other nations, and above all, constantly put America’s best interests first. The deal maker knows when to be tough and when to back off. He knows when to bluff and he knows when to threaten, understanding that you threaten only when prepared to carry out the threat. The deal maker is cunning, secretive, focused, and never settles for less than he wants. It’s been a long time since America had a president like that. – Donald Trump
Evidence #5 Manipulating Laws And Rules:
The Muslims, they want us dead, we know that for a fact. The refugees are joining ISIS and are pouring into our country like that. They both hate our freedom and way of life, you can’t argue that. By enforcing and requiring these possible terrorists to wear badges at all time they can be easily identified and tracked if necessary. This is nothing like the badges the Jews had to wear during the Holocaust, that was different, but you know, it’s the same thing. These are tough times right now and I’m just saying what everyone else is too afraid to say. We can take back America, we just need to work together, it’s never too late. – Donald Trump
There is no reason we shouldn’t put them all on their own land like how we did with the Indians. We know what these people are capable of and I know I’m scared, and I know most Americans are too. We need to act now before more innocent lives are lost. – Donald Trump
If Donald Trump’s psychopathic rhetoric is any indication of what he would do if he was elected President, we are all in a heap of trouble. It is very clear that Donald Trump has no clear foreign policy and is a novice at best on diplomacy and other matters concerning U.S. foreign policy. Furthermore, Donald Trump’s psychopathic personality will probably make it almost impossible to change his perspectives on foreign policy issues.
