Over the past few weeks, many of them spent off and relaxing with Terri and Valeri on Rham for the first time in ages, I have been giving a bit of thought to just what a trump presidency would look like. In this article, I am going beyond the mysteries surrounding just how Trump would win and even by passing the option that the RNC has of denying him the nomination in the hope they can reanimate their party from the ashes of that inferno in 2020 with Speaker Paul Ryan. For a moment let’s suspend disbelief for a few moments and presume that Donald Trump wins the White House in November 2016.
In this scenario Trump is likely to have a GOP House and a GOP Senate. This would give him confidence that he can get his agenda moving forward quickly. Donald Trump, unlike any other President of the United States before him, will have a unique problem. His wealth, whether you believe he is worth $10 billion or $1 billion, will become the issue that most affects his presidency. As President, Trump will not have to stop being Donald Trump the businessman. This will become a constant point of contention with Progressives that have watch conservatives go into rictus every time President Obama has played a round of golf. While in that Washington Post article Trump said he didn’t have time for golf, as President it is certain that he will make time for the Trump Organization and this will be to the detriment of the American People.
The Trump Organization which spreads out over more than 500 subsidiaries, half of which command Trump’s direct attention as President, is something that this man cannot leave to the direction of others. Sure he has executive vice presidents that can handle day to day operations, but I cannot imagine a man like Donald Trump can simply leave that world of business to the devices of others to focus on being the Chief Executive of the United States of America. Distractions to the work of the people are common in the Oval Office. War, political infighting, scandal and legal wranglings are all known knowns.
If in 2019, in the height of a civil war in Eastern Europe where NATO allies safety and security might be in jeopardy Trump finds his organization struggling to finish a very profitable deal in the Middle East where does his attention lie? Will those who support Trump today, the same people who cast doubts on President Obama give a hypocritical pass to their man? The bigger question in all of this is: Can America have a President who is distracted by his corporate responsibilities in the golden age of the 24 hour news crisis?
