Trump is OK

Reader comment on item: A Conservative in the Age of Trump

Submitted by Vivarto (Israel), Jan 18, 2017 at 17:37

Hello Daniel,

I am disappointed to see you continual your anti-Trump writing. (Though in a slightly milder tone.)

Trump is no more narcissistic than most other politicians. Nor do I see his candidacy and now presidency as a way to enhance his ego. Rather he appears an idealist who sacrificed the life he loved for public service because he wants to help his country which he loves (unlike Obama and Clinton...)

His main "fault" is that unlike the politicians he says what he thinks.
He has identified political correctness, the bolshevik media, illegal immigration and Islam as the four greatest dangers threatening America. (I am using term "Bolshevik", as there is nothing liberal about the so called "Liberals").

Trump also correctly assessed that Russian geopolitical interests are not conflicting with American. The old guard Republicans and Dems alike are completely misguided in their anti-Putin hysteria. It is none of America's business if Russia takes over Crimea, and even if Eastern Ukraine separates. Ukraine is an artificial country that has never existed in history. Even the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, is the original capital of RUSSIA from 1000 years ago.
None of the dynamics between Russian and Ukraine apply to Poland, and other East European countries including the Baltics. Trump understand this, while others either don't, or pretend not to.

I expect that Trump's greatest achievement will be the real reset of relations with Russia. The others will be killing the Two State Solution, moving embassy to Jerusalem, declaring Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization and cleansing the US government of their influence, including CAIR. I also expect that economy under Trump administration will improve.

I could not care less about what he does, or does not do with women, prostitutes, etc. As far as I am concerned he can have a harem.

Best regards
Vivarto
