My opinion. I won’t waste time backing it up with research. Do your own.
Particularly later in life, we start thinking about one’s legacy. “Did I matter?”
Obama’s legacy will still be determined but as of late, he is one of the most admired men in the world, and has a long list of firsts, overcoming adversity, and showing grace under pressure.
Then there is Trump. Per a collective of noted psychologists and psychiatrists, he is a sick man. Can you imagine what goes through his head when he thinks “How will I be remembered?” He said it himself. “I build things.”
What better way to be remembered than with a structure, that costs billions to build, and as a result, won’t be torn down anytime soon. I really believe that his willingness to jeopardize the lives of his constituents, the parks, Homeland Security, the economy, the country and more rests on the hope that he can become immortal with a wall, a big, expensive wall, that others pay for, sacrifice for, and he demonstrates his greatness. Egomaniac much? and it will be the ultimate screwing for the American people, to which he seems to derive some sick pleasure of screwing others, figuratively of course.
Pitiful, isn’t it? He will have a legacy but I suspect it will be one much like Nixon. A crook, self serving, and not too bright. A man so emotionally damaged, a psychopath desperate for the approval of others, and will do anything to get it.
Maybe he should have read the article below. It seems he did everyone in reverse. Maybe the one thing he has shown us is what not to be and not to do. Sometimes you got to hit bottom. I’m hoping we are almost there with him. Looking forward to the rebound.
Leaving a legacy is an important part of your life’s work. A legacy develops from a life dedicated to self-reflection and purpose. What will be revealed and what will endure is a truthful and value driven body of living.
