WHY DONALD TRUMP WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT? BACKBONE!

I’m sick of the media criticizing  President Trump because of their many half-baked, fabricated and phony allegations and therefore I felt compelled to write this post.  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  (with a Masters of Government Administration, have over 40 years employment with the Federal, a State and a city government, and have followed politics for 60 years.

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 (though thin-skinned).  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, the military, healthcare, war on terror,  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 fraudulently accused by the Left that, “Bush lied, people died.”

I’m not advocating that the President of the United States engage in stupid struggles and calling enemies derogatory names  on matters that can’t be won and therefore simply receive 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 the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, is often given a bum rap when he doesn’t push a Bill in Congress that he 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 Majority leader needs to explain this on Fox News and other news outlets that are fair, otherwise don’t blame voters for thinking he is a jellyfish-spine Republican Congressional leader.

Donald Trump is a street fighter.  “Turning-the-other-cheek” is not for successful politicians.  Currently, President Trump is improving  his messaging and has appointed impressive people to help him develop his policies and lead his Cabinet.  He had a resounding electoral 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, including the strongest economy in 50 years and the lowest unemployment for African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans ever.   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.
