A friend emailed me something she received and I thought I’d post it…..How much do you agree with?
I fail to believe that Trump is a criminal, disloyal, thief, Liar, dislikes the military, or a traitor! I do see the advantage of him being friendly with our enemies. To “stay close to your friends and closer to your enemies “, is a century’s old Tenet for a successful negotiation outcome. Russia in particular has always believed in Strength, Intimidation, Deception and Brutality! Putin is a classic example of the Tenet. Trump understands that and behaves accordingly.
I dislike Trumps verbiage delivery in his town meetings (he’s improving). Repetition of cliches, metaphors and salient points. However, I do understand a lot of the bravado used to ‘rev up the base’. If he does not brag about his accomplishments, who will? Trump is masterful as a negotiator and understanding of human nature! Also is smarter than he is given credit for, naturally. He was the top of his class at Wharton School of Business, a most respected graduate school! In addition to that, he didn’t become a Billionaire just because his dad left him an inheritance!
Like him or not, I believe he is the right man at the right time in our history, not beholden to anyone and financing all of this with his own fortune. Isn’t it odd how certain people cross our life path for no explainable reason? Just consider odd characters in history that had no obvious reason to become important to America like Ben Franklin, a total philanderer. Churchill, a fifth of Scotch a day, Halsey, very near the bottom of his class at the Naval Academy who became an Admiral when we needed him and many more who shaped the world by being the right person at the right time!
