Trump grew up rich. In a way, that can immunize you somewhat against the greed for money that Clintons have. At his age ...70, with a person who values his name so much..Trump this and that....what would he do or get before he passes on ? Another resort, ten more cars ? I think he would value a good name...to be remembered as the President that saved America at a critical time in history. For someone who has fast cars, beautiful women, children, billion of dollars, fame, ... I do believe that what he wants is a good name that will go down in history. That I believe he knows money cannot buy. Not all his millions. He will be a good President for that reason.. All his properties bear his name...ie Trump this and that....and a good name, makes good $$ sense.
Besides...no President rules alone. Does Obama ? What about Valerie Jarret, Eric Holder etc
When we look at Trump's team....it is pretty sound, Mike Pence is pretty solid right?
And after 4 yrs...Pence will be in a better position to run...and I think Trump would back down and go back to his business. It's not like the Obamas and Clintons who have nothing to do except go on the lecture circuit. Trump has lots of things he could do..We live in a world we write people off too easily because we expect perfection. God has used flawed people all the time. How about the great Judge that was sent to help Israel in the time of Judges...Samson ? Was he a commendable character ?
Rather Trumpian I would say...nevertheless, he changed and ended well being listed a hero of faith in the book of Hebrews. .
