Toronto Star: Trump is the “first politician to put image over substance”

Toronto Star portrays US President Donald Trump as a liar and incoherent who has no experience in government and puts image over substance.

The following are excerpts from the Star’s editorial on April 29, 2017:

[Trump] hardly pretends to mean the things he says and often says the opposite… On policy, a winner has yet to emerge in the wrestling match between Trump’s often cruel intentions and his apparent inability to realize them… a president with no experience in government… he prefers to watch his presidency on TV than to enact it… the first politician to put image over substance, but the president’s image, his style, is itself transformative. His lies, his contradictions and general incoherence, his emphasis on being the winner, the biggest, the best, his appeals to nativism and xenophobia… it is not in the form of a coherent set of policies or an ideological orientation. Rather, it is the primacy of showmanship and Trump’s obsession with his own “ratings” that define this presidency and help to explain how positions can change within a day, or even a speech.
