Trump … The man who knows everything

File The Economist

UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — US President Donald Trump raised eyebrows at his advice to French firefighters when he urged them to move “quickly” and use water tanks to save Notre Dame Cathedral, but this was not the first time he had presented himself as an expert in various fields.

The French authorities, who were in a race against time to save the famous Parisian cathedral, were not aware of the president’s advice via Twitter.

The French emergency services explained that spraying large amounts of water from aircraft would have caused the demolition of the building, which is 850 years old.

But this information is not expected to shake Trump’s confidence in his knowledge base.

Here are some tips for a former property tycoon who was also in advance for a reality television program. The Washington Post accuses him of making more than 9,000 false or misleading statements in two years.

– Public Relations Man –

Trump, of course, is concerned about the reputation of Boeing’s giant aviation industry after two crashes of two 737Max aircraft. The solution is: Change the model name of the aircraft.

“If I were a Boeing, I would have repaired the Boeing + 737 Max + and added some great features and changed the brand of the commercial plane,” Trump wrote via Twitter. “No product has been damaged as much as this plane, but I repeat, what do I know?”

– theories on renewable energy –

“The wind turbines used to generate energy can not deal with production disparities and are harmful to health,” the president said, quoting theories that have been proven to be untrue or unproven.

“If the wind does not blow, we have to forget the television for tonight,” he said sarcastically. “Dear, I want to watch TV + I’m sorry, there is no wind.”

“Noise (wind turbines) causes cancer,” he said on another occasion.

– Expert in technology –

Although he is famous for his work associated with residential towers and golf courses, Trump has nothing to say about the aviation sector.

Commenting on the Boeing 737 Max, he said on Twitter, “Aircraft management has become a very complex process, we no longer need pilots, but MIT computer scientists.” I always see that in many products. Unnecessary forward, while the older and simpler are often much better “.

He also participated in the field of aircraft during a government meeting.

“I know more about the jets than anyone else,” he said.

– January 2019

Trump defended old technology, such as building walls along the border between the United States and Mexico.

“Nothing (else …) will work, and this is the truth for thousands of years, I understand in technology more than anyone else,” he said.

– Good genes –

Trump also explained what he considered an extraordinary intelligence that he said he enjoyed.

“My uncle was a great professor, scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,” he said in a speech. “It’s very good genes – very intelligent.”

“If I were nominated as a liberal Democrat, they would say I was one of the smartest people in the world – that’s a fact!”

– July 2016

– bad experts –

But the president does not trust ordinary experts, like those who say they gave bad foreign policy advice to his predecessors at the White House.

“I have always wanted to say that … all these experts are very bad,” he said in a speech.

The US president went further, pointing out that things would go better if left the thorny issues like the war against the organization of the Islamic state and other extremist groups.

“I know more about the organization of the Islamic state than the generals know,” he said at a rally.
