WHY DONALD TRUMP WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT? BACKBONE!

I’m sick of the media explaining that Donald Trump did well because of their many (half-baked) ideas and Russian collusion and therefore I felt compelled to write this post, however, I must say that Trump’s targeting blue-collar workers and rust-belt states was very clever.

My credentials for saying what I’m about to say are simply that I’m a conservative, a graduate of U. of Penn’s Wharton School (but with a MGA , not an MBA), and have over 40 years employment with the Federal, a State and a city government.  I believe that Trump supporters support  him for the same reason that I like him:  the man has a stiff spine and is not timid.  When he’s criticized by the Press or political opponents, he doubles-down and fights back even harder.  In addition,  Trump’s focus on illegal immigration, weakened military, Obamacare, anemic war on terror, tiny growth in the economy, the North Korean threat, etc., touched a nerve with the electorate and he has taken numerous actions to address all of these.  He’s truly a “Blue-collar Billionaire.”

Mitt Romney lost the 2012 Presidential election to President Obama because he refused to fight back.  He was more than capable, as evidenced by his outstanding performance in his first debate with President Obama.  When viciously attacked by the Obama campaign, he refused to fight back.  Governor Romney’s poor performance came on the heels of Senator McCain’s poor performance in the 2008 Presidential campaign.  Moreover, it followed President Bush’s unwillingness to fight back when constantly accused by the Left that, “Bush lied, people died.”

I’m not advocating picking stupid fights that can’t be won and simply receiving a black eye, but I also believe in not backing off when Democrats and the Main Stream Media make false allegations.  For example, I believe that Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, and Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, are often given bum raps when they don’t push a Bill in Congress that they know won’t pass.  However, there is a time to fight but Republican leadership doesn’t appear to have the stomach for it.  When there are good and rational reasons for not fighting, the Speaker and the Majority leader need to explain this on Fox News and other news outlets that are fair, otherwise don’t blame voters for thinking they are jellyfish-spine Republican Congressional leaders.

Donald Trump is a street fighter.  “Turning-the-other-cheek” is not for successful politicians.  Trump is improving  his messaging and has appointed impressive people to help him develop his policies and lead his Cabinet.  He had a resounding victory over Hillary Clinton, thanks to his strong backbone and outworking her by far. Upon becoming the President, he implemented policies that he advocated during the election.  If he continues, he will go down in history as being one of our greatest presidents, and possibly even teach Republican Congressional leaders how to fight hard for what they believe in and grow a strong backbone.
