Trump versus Lincoln
Trump likes to compare himself to Lincoln. Can you imagine Trump saying even one of these Lincoln quotes?
1. Any nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure.
2. Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?
3. I didn’t like that man. I must get to know him better.
4. 5. we should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.
5. 6. Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.
6. Never stir up litigation. A worse man can scarcely be found than one who does this.
And some of the Gettysburg Address, words applicable today.
"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure.
It is for us the living…to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they … have thus far so nobly advanced. —that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
OH, FOR SUCH LEADERSHIP AND THOUGHTFULNESS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
