The cultivation of distrust.
This President will never have the trust of the majority of the people.
He is the least transparent President in our lifetime. He is wrapped in secrecy, as are most of his business deals.
He refuses to disclose his tax returns or financial records of his businesses in numerous countries.
He says he has no business with Russia, whatsoever. His son says they have a "disproportionate" amount of business with Russia? Which is it?
He lies about everything, big and small.
His base supports him because they see it differently than the majority whenever he tricks, deceives, manipulates, and uses the press as a foil. They falsely believe deception and manipulation to be positives in a leader.
He will never be a trusted leader.
