Leading up to the 2008 meltdown on 8/8/2000, George W. Bush sought to reassure Americans worried about volatile stock markets that the U.S. economy remained sound and well-positioned to weather recent big swings in prices, saying “We’ve got a record that proves taxes can be cut, economies grow, deficits reduced and wars fought,” Less than six months later the U.S. economy slipped into a recession.

Rebuilding America's Defences, said: "while the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein."

"The people who knocked these buildings down will hear from all of us soon", Bush had shouted into his 'bullhorn' on 9-14-01, except of course, 'it wasn't the Iraqis', and he (Bush/Obama/Trump) had never investigated who was responsible for causing all the explosions going off in all 3 Towers killing 'almost' 3,000 persons. 'Every' #911Anniversary. #911Justice.

In the age of Trumpism, vast majority of GOP officeholders are the antithesis of High Trust Leaders. In time of crisis "Confronting Reality" is perhaps one of the most important behavior of a high trust leader! Unfortunately, the GOP's 1st priority in responding to any crisis is to champion their own agenda, which leads to ineffective responses and is bankrupting America (the central aim of our terrorist enemies!!

As Confucius said: " To know what is right and not to do it is the worst kind of cowardice. "
