In the Pali Canon, there is a list (of course) of the ten qualities that a good ruler should exemplify.
Trump fails every point. He is uncharitable, immoral, self-centered, a spouter of obvious and pathetic falsehoods, ridiculously arrogant, painfully undisciplined, as provocable as a tired toddler, vengeful and denigrating to the weak, lacking even a shred of either patience or forbearance, bigoted in every way, and without a modicum of respect or decency toward anyone who disagrees with him. What a sad little man he is.
Read it and grieve for our republic.

There’s really nothing I can add to this list. It highlights the utter failure, both as a leader and as a human being, of the puffed-up toad that is Trump.
