It looks like when the Trump show comes on he says things and the next day his handlers have to do damage control. 3 weeks ago he said the virus wasn't a big deal. I dont think the guy can see anything other than his own image in the mirror. I had a narcisst in the family but thank God he got divorced out. There are so many similarities between that jerk and Trump it is shocking so I I am probably bothered by the self centered and never taking the blame actions more than most people. I think his decision making is single focused and therefore dangerous.
Yet not one thing in that comment has anything to do with him acting dictatorial. That's my point. Now, I am going to ask you directly: What has Trump done that is indicative of him acting like a dictator? I want specifics, not just a talking point. I await your answer. First off you have to begin with the accepted definition of a dictator. I will help you with that:

  1. a ruler with total power over a country, typically one who has obtained control by force
  2. a person who behaves in an autocratic way.
  3. (in ancient Rome) a chief magistrate with absolute power, appointed in an emergency
Which one are you going to go with?
