I think it’s the word “intelligence” that makes him uncomfortable.

President Donald Trump’s interest in taking intelligence briefings has been declining steadily since his first months in office and has dropped to near zero in recent weeks, according to a HuffPost review of all of his daily schedules.
Trump went from a high of 4.1 briefings per week on average in March 2017 to 0.7 per week since July 1, shortly after it became public that he had ignored intelligence reports about Russia offering bounties to the Taliban for each American soldier killed in Afghanistan.
Monday’s briefing, in fact, was the first in August and the first since July 22. That month had only three briefings scheduled.
“It’s remarkable that, even at their peak, they never exceeded 20 per month,” said Ned Price, a former CIA analyst and a spokesman for the National Security Council during the Obama administration.
“And now that they are arguably more important than ever, as foreign actors are again interfering in our democracy, tensions with Beijing are swirling, and America’s adversaries and competitors are becoming more emboldened, the president can’t seem to find the time to be briefed,” he added.
So apparently Trump is no longer interested in protecting this country because he thinks it will reject him in November anyhow.
He is a petulant child who has never understood the vast responsibilities that the President of the United States faces on a daily basis.
What’s more, I think that Trump is planning to just burn the place down before he leaves office.
He will be like the guy who murders his estranged wife because if he can’t have then nobody can.
