Trump:A Response to Criticism
Trump let’s respond to the criticism
Recently Presidential candidate Donald Trump has come under fire from not only the media and the Democratic party but even his own political party, the GOP.
He has been criticized as being an arrogant and insensitive person, unfit for the highest office in the land.
With all of these attacks coming his way I think it is appropriate that these
attacks should be responded to. I will do this in question and answer format.
Q- Trump has never held public office before his only experience is
running his businesses, isn’t he therefore unqualified for the Presidency
of the United States?
Trump is certainly qualified for the U.S. Presidency. His background
as a business executive gives him excellent working knowledge of dealing with
people and handling massively important situations. Let me remind you
that two of our recent presidents had very thin resumes before they
took office (Presidents Clinton and Obama) yet know one now claims
that their inexperience hurt their presidencies.
Q- Trump has made some unfortunate remarks so doesn’t this
make him less attractive to women voters?
True Trump has said some unfortunate remarks about women
over the course of his career but the person he will be running
against in the election has a much more unsettling position towards
females. Hillary Clinton stood by her adulterer husband even to the
point of helping silence the women who revealed some of Bill’s
transgressions. These actions by Mrs.Clinton are clearly more damaging
to women than any of Trump’s impish commentary.
Q- Isn’t Trump hated by his own party even to the point of
its top leaders such as both Bush presidents and Bill Kristol
not supporting him, so he therefore can’t win?’
A-True Trump has been harshly criticized by his own party and
its top leaders. But Trump if so hated how come he won the
primaries and has locked up the nomination? The answer to this
question is that so often in life the average members of an organization
or movement very different views then the top echelon of leaders. This
reality also appears in other social movements such as the debate
over the Washington Redskins name. For several years prominent
American Indian organizations have been thundering against the
use of the mascot name Redskins asserting that it is a racist word.
But recent polling of the average American Indians state that
90% of them are not offended by the name Redskin to denote
an American Indian.
Q- Trump is a jerk, insensitive and heartless to other’s concerns. Why should
we elect such an unpleasant person?
A- True Donald Trump is not the most pleasant person in the world.
BUT so are most politicians! Reviewing America’s recent political history
we remember such people as Newt Gingrich, Richard Nixon, Lyndon
Baines Johnson, all of whom exhibited very bad behavior to one and
all. It has always been the case that politicians don’t’ always behave
gentlemanly to the people they represent. An extreme example of
this would be President Bill Clinton who was not only an adulterer and
a felon but was also accused of rape and sexual harassment. Despite
all of this the rank and file of his party stood by him and ardently defended
his right to stay in office. It is a basic double standard: its okay for the
Democrats to support Clinton with his horrible acts but not okay for
people to support Trump who is only charged with being an annoying lout.
