An acquaintance of mine − an educated man who admits to voting for Donald Trump − recently told me this:
He believes that both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are egomaniacal narcissists who are unqualified to be POTUS. The reason that he voted for Trump is that he believed that it was likely that Trump would be investigated by congress during his tenure as president, and his motives questioned/challenged, whereas Clinton wouldn’t be.
So he cares only about the personal quality of candidates and not their political inclinations? Trump has already made a policy impact and his appointees will have lasting effects on federal departments. Many right leaning policy reforms are close to becoming reality. The political landscape would have been different under Hillary. Isn’t this much more important than choosing a candidate whose personality you like?
One of the most absurd things I heard often from Trump supporters during the election is that the President has no power. I suspect your friend fell in the same trap of not really understanding the results of electing Trump or Clinton. I hope Trump helps give us a civics lesson as a country, regardless of political leaning.
the alternative was WWIII and big steps towards one world government. Trump is a beachhead in the war over individual sovereignty. People don’t seem to get that. He is being lead astray but the insider white hats have much more room to operate under trump. In any case humanity’s existential war will be fought during trumps presidency. Both sides are all in, this is obvious. This is the most important time in human history to be alive. Pick a side and let’s get it on!!
