Trump has a knack for manipulating perceptions.Portraying negative coverage as "fake news" has helped Trump to distract from scandals big and small: his family's conflicts of interest, his dodgy business deals around the world, white supremacists among his senior staff, the rejection of ethics training for senior White House staff, and much else.Trump is no leader; he cannot create, only distract and destroy – and put his name on what others have built.Perhaps Trump will follow the example of Saparmurat Niyazov, Turkmenistan's first president for life, and start renaming the known months of the year, beginning with "Trumpuary".Not even Trump believes his own act.At what point will commentators stop gushing that Trump has finally become "presidential" every time he sticks to a script?Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, for example, noting that he is "not a big media press access person," flies around the world without a press entourage – unsurprising for a former CEO of a multinational oil company, but highly unusual for the top U.S. diplomat.Against this background, the last thing the world needs is a volatile and unabashedly dishonest U.S. president, much less one who likes to play with matches.
