WHY TRUMP WILL BE A GREAT PRESIDENT AND WHY HE COULD BE A ONE TERM PRESIDENT
There were literally billions of Souls in Dis who were stunned to disbelief at the outcome of the election two weeks ago in the United States of America; I was not one of these stunned people. Donald J Trump won the election energizing the base loyal to him to vote and convincing enough moderates, in the right states, to vote against Hillary Clinton. Make no mistake, however, this potential political step backward in the United States was a result of the fear and anger among white male American voters who viewed a Hillary Clinton presidency as a third term for Barack Obama. All of that being said, now the conservatives, the alt-right and establishment members of the GOP, a party that should have died in a Clinton landslide, have two of the three branches of the American government in their grasp as well as having the keys to the Supreme Court where likely there will be three appointments in Trump’s first term.
This may come as a shock to many of my readers but I think Donald Trump will be a controversial President, but at the end of his run as the chief executive I believe he will disappoint many members of the Alt-Right who voted heavily for him by being a centrist. The only way Trump can mend fences within his own party is to find a way to govern for all the American people. Sure this morning conservatives who felt that their 2nd amendment rights may have been in jeopardy staring down the barrel of a Hillary Clinton presidency are breathing easier. The smart kids on the Right are not as comfortable as Trump’s base this morning, because as Obama was an unknown quantity to the nation eight years ago Trump is an unknown quantity, literally a black swan in the great scheme of things, to the bulk of the GOP. But that’s politics isn’t it?
Four years from now the ego and swagger that Trump has always had will still be there because this job above all others he’s ever had is important to him. His brand must not suffer because he was a bad president. Sarah Bloch will give her take on what Trump will or will not do later in the day but for now my opinion is the Donald Trump through the sheer power of his ego will not be a disaster of a president but he will make enough errors of judgement over the next four years to be a one term president. I will go out on a limb and say that he will be challenged by at least three GOP candidates in 2020 and he will be the first president in ages to lose the nomination in the primaries. This will be more due to his inability to build a bridge to the establishment of his own party than anything that a devastated Democratic Party could do. And here’s something to keep in mind. Bernie Sanders would have beaten Donald Trump. Joe Biden would have beaten Donald Trump. Were he able to run for a third term all of our resources here and on Terra says that Barack Obama would have beaten Trump. But here we are on the cusp of a Trump presidency and the Right of all stripes have to do something positive for America as they see it nearly without Democratic opposition. This must be terrifying because now both the Confederate flag flying truck driver in the South and the New York hedge fund manager in the North have taken ownership of the success or failure of America as a going concern. Good luck.
