Donald J. Trump: to survive amongst wolves, one must behave like a wolf

Updated on August 12, 2015

Wolves with sheep clothes on

Please bear with me as I read a verse from the King James Version of the Bible ( from Saint Matthew, the 7th chapter, the 15th verse), "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

In the times when Jesus walked the face of the earth in Palestine, during a time when wolves were numerous and wolves were a dread of shepherds, because they were such great and terrible enemies to sheep, just the mention of the name wolf could bring horror to mind of one subjected to them.

When we consider Mr. Trump's situation and how he is a seasoned business person who has been successful in business, we can easily see the set of values and skills that he brings to the campaign trail as he runs for president. Very few people understand that running the country, from the White House, is the same as running a business, with many additional, or collateral duties, that is. By the way, this is not the first time that a business person has pursued the office of President of the United States with successful results. Other men of business have been president.

We have witnessed situations, formal and informal situations, where men and women who approach Mr. Trump as enemies, as wolves, if you will, with sheep clothes on, attacking or positioned to attack him, have failed. Mr. Trump, whom some may consider a wolf, has conditioned himself by education and training, and with many years of fighting wolves in the business world, to successfully counter-attacking wolves and winning. Successfully fighting off wolves is a very difficult process to sustain, day in and day out.

Living within a "dog-eat-dog" world, and fighting off wolves as they attack you, from all sides, it is a very difficult life to live. Mr. Trump, thus far, has succeeded in this ever going pursuit.

Running for the President of the United States is his greatest test ever.

Who knows what the future holds. No one knows what may happen, what the outcome will be with all of this confusion, discontent, and yes, hatefulness, as wolves battle it out, in pursuit of the White House.

Who will win and who will lose? The bigger question, "Will the American people win?" Who knows?

Mr. Trump is a business person. Undisputedly, one of the greatest business people walking the face of the earth today. Even as a child he was able to see how life was, in the "heat of a typical business day." He learned early in life that it was difficult to survive in the "dog-eat-dog" environment of a typical business day. He learned early in "game of business," how to survive within the world of business.
