Though perhaps the requirements for police officers could be more stringent. Their pay could be higher, too, which would attract more qualified people. The same holds for public school teachers and a wide variety of public service employees. It blows my mind that the richest country on Earth can't seem to do that, and people are okay with this.

Considering that his inaugural approval rate is 45%, according to Gallup, then I'm willing to believe his base is close to 40% of the electorate. That approval rate, by the way, is the lowest of any modern president. I agree that he's unlikely to run in 2020. I also think he's likely to resign or face impeachment and removal before that. But then, I also didn't think he'd win the nomination, much less the election, so what do I know?
