It has been a few months and both the press and opposition have not figured out President Donald Trump. Let alone why Trump won the election. Lets clear some misconceptions:
1) Rural / Country Votes Defeated Hilary
Not enough rural votes to matter. The Democrats struggled with the Suburbs. People on government support voted for Hilary, the people who pay the taxes did not.
Hilary won California by 4 million votes. She lost the other 49 states by 2 million votes.
2) Expecting President Donald Trump Will Act Like a Politician
Donald Trump won the election despite the Republican Party, despite the Press, and despite the Democrats being incumbents. He ran as an Anti-politician. He has said outrageous and provocative statements to shake up the election. Look at his selected Alpha business CEO advisors who get things done to lead his government. They will act very different than politicians.
3) Donald Trump Will Stop Responding to Criticism
Donald does not operate under ‘attack each other to a draw’ politics of the last 20 years. He will respond like a Media star.
Obama tried to ignore the unfair ‘Birther’ attacks during his presidency. Donald Trump responded forcefully to the unfair ‘Illegitimate President’ personal attack no matter how respected the speaker is.
He will respond forcefully no matter how important the Country criticizing him.
4) The Republican Party is in Charge
Donald Trump is not stuck on an ideology. He is a Moderate. While rare in DC these days, still very common among non-politicians. He will take allies where he can get them on each issue. While the Republican Party is weak, per Chuck Todd “The Democratic Party is in Disarray, and is Irrelevant.”
5) Donald Trump is a Negotiator
Master negotiators have an agenda, do not reveal everything up front, and read the opposition before reacting. He is use to people playing hardball with him. Has progressed through life he has accumulated power, and negotiated at different levels of power. Not much will throw him.
Expect outrageous opening positions in public. But people & governments who want to work with the US will find a reliable partner. Government who try to overpower the USA will be rebuffed. Deals are made where both sides can Save Face.
Government negotiations will change from the weak tactics used by the last administration. President Trump has the advantage President Bush 43 had has ‘The Cowboy’. No one is certain what he would do.
6) President Donald Trump Does Not Owe the Establishment
The people who elected the President are the Unprotected. Average working people who pay taxes who use to be The Silent Majority. These citizen are his clients.
Not even sure he will want a second term, unless his supporters request him.
President Trump’s first term is not about being reelected. It will be Getting Changes Done. Expect things will be different in DC.
