The Difference Between POTUS and Donald Trump... Oh!!! and the Other World Leaders.

In my journey so far on Earth, nobody gained my attention this well and made me interested in politics the way Donald Trump has done it. Just to give heads up to Humans who think they are "Unique" and "One of a Kind" living in their superficial world really need to open their eyes because there is a personality in existence that can shatter your world and bring you back into the reality. Yes, I am talking about Donald Trump. He literally redefines "Unique" and "One of a Kind" and billions of humans that I have observed cannot even match his level of Uniqueness.

I would love to see the world leaders with a good sense of humor but it is so incredibly odd to see the leader who himself is a humor and he stands on the world stage representing his country with the audacity of being so facetious and frivolous. He is someone who, with his frequently changing statements/decision/opinions, has left people so confused whether they should laugh, or be serious, or be scared or be sad or be happy. 8 out of 10 human acquaintance of mine who voted for Donald Trump regret their decision. Remaining two are ultra rich earners/business man. So you get the point.

Well, this interest of mine made me do my research and without much explanation, I leave you guys with the below comparison. It is self explanatory and those with "stable genius" mind (pun intended) would understand what I am talking about.

POTUS (the title)
Donald Trump
Is also addressed as:

  • The Honorable
  • His Excellency

While he boldly addresses others as:
“Crooked Hillary Clinton”
“Rocket Man”
“Sloppy Steve”
“Wacky and Unhinged Tom Steyer”
“Fake News”
Annual Salary
As per Bloomberg
Donald Trump disclosed making more than $528.9 Million. Total revenue with income over 15.5 months, including first three months of his Presidency.
Takes care that the laws are faithfully executed
Was sued over 3500 times in his career and almost 70 times since he started campaigning for Presidency. More info

Fired James Comey claiming he was not performing well (handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails) while there was no discussion done with him about his performance by Attorney General. James Comey heard about his firing on the news.
Also fired Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, Steve Bannon (well, the list is long)
Directs U.S. Foreign Policy and Relations

  • Responsible for protection of Americans abroad
  • Responsible for protection of foreign nationals in the United States.
  • Negotiates treaties with the other nations

  • Withdrew US from Paris Climate Agreement
  • Disrupted the “Two State Solution”.
  • Questioned NATO members’ contribution for defense (Though he stated the fact here)
  • Said really odd things about China (though changed his tone post meeting with Xi Jinping)

Represents the country on the world stage
Represents himself on the world stage as a businessman who thinks that everybody else owes him (U.S.) money.
Most of the time, feels like he is still running the show “Apprentice” - Fire / Hire / Do the Business
Majorly talks about Dow Jones / Tax Cuts / Money

The above comparison is just a gist but really tells us where we are heading and what U.S. people are going through. For what I have observed till now is that Donald Trump lacks one of the most important skill that is needed for successful presidency... it is the skill of "Diplomacy". Believe it or not, it is a must have trait in a person; specially the one who needs to maintain foreign relations. Even CIA looks for the diplomacy skills as one of their hiring criteria for God's sake. 

Now look at the difference between Donald Trump and the other World Leaders...

Donald Trump
Xi Jinping (President of the People’s Republic of China) - statement on Clean Energy:
“All parties should work together to implement the Paris agreement. China will continue to take steps to tackle climate change and fully honor its obligations”

“We should make our world clean and beautiful by pursuing green and low-carbon development”

Trump’s statement:
Our energy companies are a disaster right now. Coal. The coal business is — you know, there is such a thing as clean coal”
Solar is very, very expensive [False]. Wind is very, very expensive [False], and it only works when it’s windy [False].

And it (he is talking about Wind-mills here) kills all the birds [False]. I don’t know if you know that … Thousands of birds are lying on the ground. And the eagle. You know, certain parts of California — they’ve killed so many eagles [False]. You know, they put you in jail if you kill an eagle. And yet these windmills [kill] them by the hundreds [False].
Angela Merkel (Chancellor of Germany) - on Trump and North Korea conflict:
"Even if this conflict is far away from Germany, it is one that also affects us," Merkel said. "That is why I am prepared, as is the foreign minister, to assume responsibility here," she said. "We took part in negotiating the Iran agreement, which I think is good, and better than having no agreement at all. It took many years, but in the end, it did limit Iran's possibilities for nuclear armament. And I think we must take the same path or a similar one, with Russia, with China, together with the US, also in the case of North Korea." 
Trump’s Tweet:
"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.' Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"

Pope Francis on the Two State Solution:
"Let us pray that the will to resume dialogue may prevail between the parties and that a negotiated solution can finally be reached, one that would allow the peaceful coexistence of two states within mutually agreed and internationally recognised borders,"
Trump’s statement:
"It is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel," Trump said, adding that the move was "a long overdue step to advance the peace process" between Israel and the Palestinians. 
He said recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital is not only a "necessary condition for achieving peace," but also "in the best interests of the United States of America."
Narendra Modi (PM of India) – speech on science and technology:
"Science and technology has helped reduce poverty and advance prosperity; fight hunger and improve nutrition; conquer diseases, improve health and give a child a better chance to survive; connect us to our loved ones and the world; spread education and awareness; and, given us clean energy that can make our habitat more sustainable."
To know how important the Science and Technology is for Trump – Let’s just say that the key position of the Director for the Office of Science and Technology is still yet to be filled. (as of date this post was published)

"I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what's going on," Trump said, according to Reuters.

"You know, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way. Because I'll tell you what: No computer is safe," Trump said.

Random conversation with Billei:

Human: Hey Billei, where the US is heading under the presidency of Donald Trump?
Billei: Hmm... I see a road with multiple forks and if I try to gauge what's at the end of each road, my mind looks "confused", "lost", "perplexed", "puzzled", "off course"...

Human: Do you think he will win presidency again in 2020?
Billei: Uhh... God!!! You are able to think so far into the future?
