Why Trump Is the Best Candidate for Working Americans
Well we are well over two years in, mid-term elections gave mixed results, we have seen an embattled President since day one, but no one should be surprised by this. Anyone who runs a campaign promising to "Drain the Swamp" and change the direction the country has been going for a quarter century should expect heavy resistance. In this case, that resistance has taken the form of impeachment efforts beginning the day he was sworn in, a Mueller investigation, and countless other as yet unsubstantiated or meaningless accusations.
Our politicians abdicated doing what was best for our national interests, and our economic interests, long ago. There are dozens in Congress that have been there for 30 years or longer, the results of their efforts are in and its pretty easy to conclude that they were willing to sell out the American people, while pretending to work for them well enough not to get blamed by the voters.
If our government, and our politicians were serving our National interests, the American people's interests, we would have never abdicated out industrial base to China, and allowed their products to remain tariff and tax free for 30 years, we would have never passed NAFTA, allowing for companies to move production of their products to Mexico or Canada and not pay tax or tariffs. And we most certainly would not be pursuing the strengthening of the WTO, WB, IMF, UN, at our expense as a sovereign state.
Fighting this system of corruption takes a monumental ego and effort, nothing else could survive the constant barrage of attacks from all sides, from the Courts, the Congress and most of all the Media.
President Trump has still found a way to accomplish some good for the American people, and the Nation, despite all the resistance that has come his way.
Oh I know, they say he insults people, he's racist, sexist, arrogant, egotistical, etc. etc. you name it, the media will throw it at him hoping it will stick.... and for some, it does, you know what they say, you can fool some of the people all of the time. For the rest of you, there is Trump.
If you are hoping for change, if you are hoping for the country to improve economically, if you are hoping that finally one of these candidates actually comes through on SOME of their promises... he's about the only hope you have.
Hillary Clinton, a politician's politician, would tell you what she thinks will get her the most votes, and once she is in office it will just be more of the same... jobs will continue to go to Mexico and China, the National Debt will continue to skyrocket by the trillions each year, the sharks on Wall St. will continue to feast on your retirement funds, the country will continue its fast track from world leader, to second class country. Joe Biden is no different, he is already caught up in scandals that prove he sold out to the Chinese, abused his position within the government to influence affairs in the Ukraine, etc.
Unlike life-long D.C. politicians (like the two mentioned above) that have long abused their positions to garner as much money and power for themselves as possible, when Trump says he will build a wall, he will make every effort. If he can rescind the laws which make it favorable for companies to ship their jobs to Mexico or China, he will. If a Washington outsider like Trump can't make these 'common sense' changes to help put the American people back to work, no one can or will, the rest don't want to even talk about such things. Well actually, they do want to talk, during an election, but they don't do much more than that.
Politicians are by nature chameleons, they do their best to figure out what you want to hear, and then they promise you what you want. Of course, their only real goal is to get to Washington and feed from the troth and secure as much power and money as they can, at the taxpayers expense.
Trump has been saying it since day one. In fact, Trump has been saying it for more than 25 years, it isn't something he has been saying to secure votes, he's saying it because its what he believes:
A Trump Interview you've probably NEVER seen before
Two days after 9/11 Trump Interview
Consider this, this interview was given to a foreign news station, which shows Trump had global recognition even then. He was calm, collected, thoughtful in his responses, and he gave them not as a politician or a candidate, but as a businessman and concerned American citizen.
Trump on China Trade Relations 5 years ago
Trump has long held his beliefs he's not a Politician he's a Patriot
You can go back five years, or twenty five years, and you will find Trump voicing the same opinions then, that he is now. He's not a politician telling you whatever BS he thinks you want to hear. He is telling you what he believes needs to be done to make this country great again, so we can make our lives better.
Trump is someone who sees the advantage to putting money back into NASA so that we can once again lead the world in new technologies and exploration, rather than throw that money away funding anti-American foreign sycophants that spit in our collective faces like the previous administration had done for eight years.
People forget what garbage we had been sold... the 'Hope and Change' tour did change things alright. Promises that Obamacare would reduce insurance costs for most households by $2,500 proved as false as many suspected they would be, many were paying that much extra, compared to what they were paying prior to Obamacare passing, while others who always had insurance are now without.
Promises to rescind the Patriot Act proved false, it was instead renewed and given broader powers by Obama. Obama promised to end the Wars in the middle east, instead they were expanded into Syria and Lebanon in addition to Iraq and Afghanistan. Oh, and then there is how he caved in to every Iran demand.
The only way things have any chance of changing for the better, is if someone OUTSIDE of Washington steps in, someone who is hugely confident, arrogant even, who has business sense and savvy and who won't be catering to the Chinese or the Lobbyists and who is egotistical enough to challenge the powers that be, to do things the way he believes they should be done.
One thing about someone who has run businesses, who has both failed and succeeded, and paid the price for mistakes, they have learned how to delegate, they have learned how to gather the best around them to help them succeed, they have learned how to make the tough choices so that the job gets done.
Trump knows how to find the best people available, the best minds, and put them to work to solve problems and get things done, that's what Owner-CEO types do. Trump's DECADES of experience in business and international trade and investment puts him worlds ahead of people like Clinton and Cruz, who know politics, who know how to take donations and spend money, but have little if any real experience in anything that would help turn this country around and make it a better place for AMERICANS.
Clinton nor Biden are going to fix the problems... they are part of the entrenched Washington problem(s). They are blind to the problems, because they embody them.
