What we have in the White House is the most ignorant and incompetent individual to have ever held the office of President. He does not understand that reality is real. He does not understand the nature of human life and human society. And most importantly he does not understand the nature and purpose of government. And with the apparent belief in his own infallibility he is clearly in the failure mode.
It's not at all surprising that the United States Government is in the failure mode.
