Reader comment on item: Blowback from Criticizing Trump

Submitted by ag (United States), Jul 27, 2016 at 18:42

We can't predict what kind of president Donald Trump would be, however:

(1) Trump was able to successfully work and deal with trade unions, mafia, local, state, federal, international governments while building his large business.
(2) Trump found a way to beat 15 other republican presidential contenders and achieve something that was considered impossible - taking over a major US political party by an outsider. I'm not sure that anyone would be able to do this w/o a populist rhetoric and dirty tricks. In 2012 Romney, very nice and accomplished candidate, lost.
(3) Trump raised decent hardworking kids. This tells a lot about his character.
(4) Trump's selection of Indiana governor Mike Pence indicates type of people he will be working with.

Judging by facts, not campaign rhetoric, I do not see a lot of reasons for all the worries about Trump's presidency.
