Insightful article written by a person who knows Donald Trump well. What is described reflects several key distinctions visible amid the current situation.
- #1 – Donald Trump brings a deliberate sense that no other candidate can match.
- #2 – Donald Trump exists in that rarefied space inhabited by those who represent risk to the power elite, and they don’t have to worry about any risk themselves. The ‘nothing to lose’ space.
- #3 – Donald Trump will win the nomination and, free to ‘call-the-baby-ugly’, destroy any remaining political opposition in the November ’16 general election.
(Via Washington Times) Despite Donald Trump’s meteoric rise to the top of the Republican presidential polls, the GOP establishment continues to bash its leading candidate. Apparently “party-cide” is contagious: The Democratic establishment continues to ride the sinking Clinton campaign like the string quartet on the deck of the Titanic — the majority of Americans know she’s a liar and don’t trust her. It’s a fight to the death all right, only each party’s pointing a gun at its own head.
GOP establishment favorite Jeb Bush is hemorrhaging voters too. CBS News/YouGov shows Bush coming in a pathetic eighth place in New Hampshire and doing only marginally better in Iowa, where he now places fifth.
As an attorney who’s worked for Trump (I have not represented him for the past year and a half) — and many years ago, against him — his success on the campaign trail comes as no surprise: Trump’s a man of exceptional tenacity and guts, insightful intuitions, clear purposes, an intelligence that’s expressed forcefully and directly, always without regard to political correctness, and a world class negotiator.
Trump intuitively understands what troubles Americans and boldly states their concerns; I guarantee he’ll never be an appeaser of foreign governments; there’ll be no Neville Chamberlains or hapless apprentices for domestic or foreign policy, in his administration — if you’re not doing your job, you’ll be fired.
Coming off President Obama’s massive failures, most recently his hugely dangerous appeasement of Iran (and funding of the terrorist regime), Americans hunger for Trump’s common sense approach, especially when coupled with his incorruptibility: Trump doesn’t need donors (let alone a foundation to function as money generating, influence-peddling machine), and when he says politicians are forever hitting him up for money, I can tell you he’s not exaggerating.
