In one single day, this guy has shown his (in)competence in two major aviation fields: aircraft branding (737MAX) and firefighting with water tankers. A real expert!

"That guy" wasn't the first one showing "incompetence about firefighting with water tankers". Before Trump asked/suggested it, French newspaper Le Figaro had already posed the same question to lietenant Arnaud Blondiau, Fire Brigade du syndicat UNSA-SDIS 95:
Q: "Pourquoi n’utilise-t-on pas de Canadair pour éteindre l’incendie?"
A: "Un Canadair largue environ 6000 litres d’eau. Cela détruirait tout le bâtiment et obligerait l’évacuation des secours".

There is a difference between posing a question as a journalist or tweeting “a Solution” as if you know what you are talking about. But then again, he’s been doing that since tbe start and proves time and time again he is dumb, dumber and dumbest combined into one.

Btw, the trump tweet was at 19:30 and the figaro interview at 23:30 ... Just saying

If only we had such 'idiots' in power in Europe, maybe we would be experiencing record low unemployment levels too.

Hm, I understood that we actually ARE experiencing record low unemployment... in BE at least. Pourvu que cela dure... And even if I am not much impressed by European politicians, they are no match in idiocy for the genius of Washington :)
