Crisis Will Not Come From President Trump: But He Will Have to Face It on Behalf of Those who Put Him There

We read:
[I praise Trump when he deserves it and criticize him when that's in order. I am deeply skeptical of his temperament and worry he will create a crisis for the United States. I hope he learns what it means to be president.] Cautious words, to be sure; and in this time of uneven politics, the true American citizen needs to be more of a cautious type like the pioneers who pursued the daily tasks in routine style, but never more than a half step to some means of defense in an environment that is intolerant of the rights of the true citizen. Placing President in the line of fire under these circumstances, however, gives only a slight modicum of relief when it is observed that more is on line to trip Trump than whether he can withstand the withering onslaught of insults for his desire, imperfect as it is, to give back the founders' legacy to the true citizen rather than the insulting insinuations of the institutionalist mentality that they know more than the true citizen what freedom is.

Any crisis that is thrown before the American constituency will not be of President Trump's doing: the previous administration made sure of that. And not only will the issues laid in waiting by the Stalinists tendencies of the previous administration continue in their malignant processes, but those who were inadvertently politically assisted by the Trump win will take advantage of the new posturing, and attempt to subvert what Candidate Trump promised as President by a manipulation so subtle that even those who think America is solvent again will find that not even a well-intentioned President Trump will be Kevlar protected from the insidious sedition that permeates the swamp, both Republican and Democrat.
