Before you start castigating me for not conforming to the hate the world has to Donald Trump, just hear me out first.
For every good or bad thing, there’s always a con or pro to it (respectively). We’re not just gonna rubbish the pros just because the majority of the world has chosen to see the cons only. Personally I’ve chosen to look at the positives even though you might not resonate with my thinking.
Trump is a hardworking and a very smart man. Picture this; he borrowed some money from his dad and he used it to build the business empire that he has right now (i’m not really interested in the controversies of how much his dad loaned him). He exploited loopholes in the US taxation system to avoid paying scrupulous amounts of tax. C’mon, don’t look at me like that, this is a capitalist world. You need to exploit every chance you get and he did exactly that!
He is bold and candid. He does not flinch when he decides to call people names or confront you on an issue. The world has been invaded by a lot of bullshit diplomacy that strives to sweep always sweep disputes under the carpet. What happened to straight up talk? Are leaders just gonna attend NATO, UN and G8 summits and sip their tea while dodging contentious issues? Hit the nail on the head damnit!
I also like his immediate approach on issues. Why should you wait 2 years later to respond to a troll on Twitter from a dissident or to a speech from another president? Remember how Netanyahu immediately slammed John Kerry’s condemning speech about Israel? That’s what I’m talking about.
He fulfills his promises, at least he’s showing that he’s working on them. His immigration and healthcare promises are getting some action in the form of draft immigration bans and his efforts in repealing Obamacare. If it were just up to him, he would have completely finished on this. We’re waiting to see on the Mexico wall.
Finally, Trump is a very confident man. I personally love this one. Do you remember his campaign rallies and the debates? Man, this guy was oozing confidence everywhere. He walked over Hillary with his “winning” campaign slogans and he did it. Just read this part from a 45-minute verbal Trump rant on winning, in one of his campaigns:
“We’re going to win. We’re going to win so much. We’re going to win at trade, we’re going to win at the border. We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning, you’re going to come to me and go ‘Please, please, we can’t win anymore.’ You’ve heard this one. You’ll say ‘Please, Mr. President, we beg you sir, we don’t want to win anymore. It’s too much. It’s not fair to everybody else.’” Trump said. “And I’m going to say ‘I’m sorry, but we’re going to keep winning, winning, winning, We’re going to make America great again.”
Don’t you just love this? I don’t know about you I wanna win too!
