Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Is this anything new?
You are liable some day to have a President supremely lacking in the qualities of a statesman, and one who is egoistic, impulsive, of immature judgment, a mere glutton of the limelight, ready to barter away prosperity and even his country's freedom for momentary popular applause.

If he is an autocrat, such as he, for the time, will your country be. Instead of a mighty nation, great in her physical strength and greater in her moral qualities, you may have a strutting, shrieking, meddling America.

No, not Trump. S McCall (R-Mass) on Roosevelt, quoted, in 1907, in Mark Twain's Autobiography (Vol 3, p.113)
