Half way around the world, I was having my cookies and warm milk before going to bed. I was a little late, but I watched Trump’s ending G-7 speech in real-time prior his heading for Singapore for the big historic summit negotiation in Singapore with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
Astonishing to me any way, a non-Trump believer that I am, his presentation made a great deal of practical sense in general. I saw Trumps outlook more clearly. So, I have determined to push the personal bias aside and give the loose cannon devil president his due. Clearly as a businessman negotiator he is for the American economy, for Wall Street, and the productive American worker first and foremost.
No matter what we think of him through scandals, 3,012 lies and deceptions, according the New York Times, investigations, Russian collusion, porn stars, Iran misstep, Israel influence, and his worldwide dictatorial objectives, some of us must come to realize that Trump is on the road to making the U. S., and himself, by hook or by crook methods, America Greater than it is by economic measures, particularly tariffs, and bullying military threats. It is clear he’s not going to be a friendly International leader to many.
(Concerning the last item, I didn’t miss warmonger advocate John Bolton standing only a few feet away from the podium as the president spoke)
One of America’s huge hubris faults during the past 60 years is that we’ve had it so ‘on top of the world economically fortunate’,we began to give away the store by easy trade terms, and treaties, and plain generosity to reduce our hard-earned prosperity through laxity.
Note the past presidents and political leaders arrived in Congress, government, from military, political, an acting career, and professorship careers, and none were businessmen or inclined to business investments. In other words, they did not see the full economic picture to arrive in the years ahead. None successfully chalenged the bottom dollar line in trade. These earlier leaders catered to the wants and needs by voter guidelines. But…
As General Motors CEO Charlie Wilson once said the wisely to reporters on a Michigan golf course, “The Business of America is business.” Our past presidents and Congressional Leaders have not, not been shrewd enough to realize it until the President, the Trumpet, blared out the message, pointed it out and has taken the manta to get the U. S. back on track to continue the America’s capitalist success.
According to Trump, and his gang, the U. S. will not give aways the candy store any longer, we’ve got to toughen up with a master plan to reduce the international trading deficit, level the playing field, accumulate profit, and look after our own interests, citizens, the voters, and last but not least the Wall Street elitists he favors at the expense of all others.
That’s not a bad ideological policy to follow, if Trump does not go to far with it. It appears unfortunately that he is about to at the detriment of other nations. We must of course wait and see. Moreover, the personal Trump objective is to be elected for a second term. He desires challenge and wants to be the powerful world mover and shaker.
No matter what we think of President Trump let us hope and wish him well during his Singapore Summit. It is I understand a first step toward peace on the peninsula and for that matter the whole world.
All the Best to you.
