Who “Runs The Country?” We Do!

“Donald Trump did not ‘run the country’ from 2017 to 2021. Nor has Joe Biden ‘run the country’ since then. Whoever wins this November’s presidential election will not ‘run the country’ starting next January 20. What are you doing today? Whatever that might be, did you ask Joe Biden for permission to do it? Next January, will you start running your daily calendar by Joe Biden or Donald Trump for approval? Almost certainly not. The president is just one of more than 330 million Americans. He (or, someday, she) may be more powerful than most of us, But not so much more powerful that he ‘runs the country’ in any meaningful sense.” (07/06/24)
