UPDATE – NOTE TITLE REWORKED- Trump won election because the media did not ignore him or call him out concerning his criminal sexual abuse and voyeurism, as well as fraud concerning Trump U and fraud upon his contractors which he refused to pay, as well as fraud using illegal foreign workers who had no recourse when they weren’t paid. Instead he condoned and worked with Russian agents to brainwash the public into believing phony scandals and defamation of Hillary Clinton’s character. Now he is being played by oil executives, Goldman Sachs executives, 1%ers who own private schools and have been responsible for bubbles leading to loss of middle-class homes and wealth transferring it to the 1%. He is transforming the presidency and is cabinet into a war department run by rogue Marines who lost their jobs due to inappropriate behavior, misogynists who cheated on their wives, and rich with no understanding or real concern for middle-class who baited voters saying they will bring back coal jobs – though that would be like bringing back the horse and buggy and banning cars. Clean energy jobs are now advancing rapidly as solar panels have become cheap and wind and water power, as well as thermal energy have become more widespread. China is rapidly outpacing us in clean energy technology. Obama has already passed the baton of world leadership to the German Chancellor and China is taking over leadership in Asia, while France and Saudi Arabia as well as Iran will have increased influence. American leadership of the world ceases if Trump takes office as no one can trust him and he is controlled by the 1% and Russia. It appears that if the Senators approve the nominees for cabinets and the electoral college votes for Trump then they both will have made an act of treason in aiding and condoning the takeover of the U.S. election by Russian hackers. The 1% will drive up the stock market with bubbles and temporary infrastructure jobs that will last 2-5 years, destroy the healthcare industry – leading both to be bubbles that will bust and cause a deep recession in 2-5 years. The steel and coal jobs lost will not come back and the Trump voters will be fleeced. Not a pretty picture!
Trump is not a statesman. He is a comic, a clown, a narcissist, a bully, crude, a user of others for his own gain – which makes him a great member of the 1%, and is unelectable. He is all bluster and no substance. He says he will build a wall with Mexico and make Mexico pay for it. Really! Give us the details Donald! How are you going to pay for it in detail. So what if you built buildings and get investors to pay for them. Buildings are investments where investors can make a profit. A wall is not an investment. Who would lend him the $21 billion to build it? Name one major issue where he has given a detailed plan of exactly how he will raise the money, who he will deal with, how he will raise concensus, etc. You won’t be able to. Look at his web site – no details! Look at his supporters – the KKK and other white supremacists. Like Jindal says he hasn’t read the Bible, because he’s not in it.
Foreign policy – give me a break – he can’t even name the leaders of the factions in charge of the major terrorist groups in the Middle East! Seriously! He may be able to get investors together if it amounts to making money, but government’s purpose is not to make money. Yes it must raise taxes, help the private sector have the environment to raise money, but it does not raise money. He might be a good adviser to a private set of advisers hired to invest the money from the Social Security trust fund so that it grows like Canada’s system which is growing and in no danger of running out of money, but investing and diplomacy are apples and oranges. Negotiating an investment is a far cry from preventing a war.
He tries to make everything black and white, which is fine for an oligarch who runs a business and fires people. It is totally inappropriate and counterproductive if you are the leader of a free nation, where the Constitution says “we the people”, as there would only be Trump, not people if he becomes an elected official. Anyone who votes for him is a fool.
If he makes a third party – so what! Despite the media who says a third party will make the GOP lose automatically – I do not think so. He will crash and burn as he has no substance in terms of details that make sense concerning foreign policy, domestic policy, jobs, the 99% including increasing the middle class, etc. I would love to see him as a debater between Clinton and either Rubio or Kasich or Bush. The other two will crush him in a real debate. You simply can’t make so many gaffs and claims you cannot support, as well as insult and denigrate so many groups of people, and then be taken seriously enough to act as a true elected leader.
The best thing for the GOP would be if the they as a party and the networks exclude him from debates due to inappropriate language and behavior and if the press starts to ignore him, which probably won’t happen. He feeds on publicity.
