  1. Trump was born comparatively wealthy – with permanently implanted silver spoon dental fixture. He has always had the luxury of paying for the expertise he believed was necessary to make the decisions he wanted – within the bounds of real estate/hotel development world. His occasional and not so insignificant failures (6 bankruptcies) shows that his judgement of the expertise he needed – was far from infallible. His current rejection of national intelligence resources seems an extension of his previous tendency to cherry pick information that favor his preferred perspective – to form his judgements. His analogy of a natural ability being more important than experience, further emphasizes Trumps narrow points of uninformed, illogical – if not mentally limited view.

    One might agree that natural ability combined with vast applicable experience is an unbeatable combination. Whether Jared Kushner is a natural deal maker is certainly debatable since we have little information on any deals he has made – or their successes. We don’t count marrying into the Trump family as an unqualified successful deal. However, his lack of appropriate experience in the kinds of geopolitical deals he might be participating in is not in question.
