This Barack Obama quote about Donald Trump is now more terrifying than ever

Donald Trump has been President of the United States of America for one year.

Let that one sink in.

After he was elected, people in the US were googling how to emigrate to Canada to such an extent that the department website crashed.

There were, and are, regular protests up and down the country and there is an exceedingly active campaign to have the man impeached.

People are terrified about what Mr Trump might do in relation to North Korea, the economy and the environment and it's not hard to see why,

This Barack Obama quote can go a long way to explaining the ongoing panic.

During the last few days of campaigning in 2016, it was reported that a Trump staffer confiscated his Twitter, given his laissez-faire stance with logic and tact.

President Obama commented eloquently on this while he was campaigning for Hillary Clinton:

In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control they said we are just going to take away your Twitter. Now, if somebody can't handle a Twitter account, they can't handle the nuclear codes.

If somebody starts tweeting at three in the morning because SNL made fun of you, then you can't handle the nuclear codes.

Well, he's had the nuclear codes for around 100 days now. So far, so good... Right?
