How do you view humanity in general?

Trump is a top tier human. We would be in golden age if there was a lot like him.

That's how I feel about myself.

This. Humanity is a profoundly mixed bag of 7.7 billion people, from Fred West to Greta Thunberg, for example, so the question posed in the OP is a ridiculous binary (me VS them) over simplification in general. Given the axiom "call a man a thief and he becomes a thief" however, I think it's massively preferable to look on the bright side/glass half full side, and adopt Astreja's position. There are plenty of good willed people around...Army of the Good, my dear late Gran called it.

I am a very wise person. Not everyone can be wise. And it has nothing to do with age.

The relevant axiom here would be: "Hire the young, while they still know everything."

I suppose you mean the US would be cease to be a democracy and would be ruled by an autocratic emperor.  But the idea of liberal democracy is not consistent with such rulers, which Trump most certainly and objective was.  What a country gets with such a ruler is unpredictable.  It depends on their intensions, desires and temperament.  There were certainly benign Roman emperors, for instance, but there were many disasterous ones as well.  And this form of governance ultimately proved to be unsustainable.  With leaders who adhere to the principles of liberal democracy, the possibility of oppressive governance is greatly reduced even if the leader is terrible at his job because we do have the opportunity to kick them out after 4 years.

And if you believe Trump to be a quality human being, then either your definition of such is warped our you are just delusional about the facts of the man.  The facts are objectively clear; he is a deplorable human being.
Why is it so?
