You Don’t Know Jack about Trump
Contrary to what you may have heard or have been led to believe Donald Trump comes from a hard working family who emigrated from Europe and settled in the neighborhood of Jamaica, Queens in New York City. Nothing was handed to him because of who his father was. His work ethic came from his father’s example and the inner drive that has determined his course in life.
“Remember this, nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy. Following your convictions means you must be willing to face criticism from those who lack the same courage to do what is right. And they know what is right, but they don’t have the courage or the guts or the stamina to take it and to do it. It’s called the road less traveled.” – President Donald J. Trump
There have been a great many misconceptions, deliberate misquotes and outright lies about Donald Trump that are often repeated by politicians from each American political party and reinforced in the liberal main stream media and on the internet.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebels
By comparison how much media attention has been given to Barack Obama during his tenure as President?
Capping off 8 years of the Obama’s administration President Obama told a fundraiser in San Diego, California that there has not been a “major scandal” in his administration, according to a White House transcript of the October 23rd 2016 event shortly before the November presidential election.
Maybe he forgot or simply couldn’t bear owning up to his administration’s targeting of conservative groups by the IRS; the veteran’s excessive waiting time or lacking adequate health care at VA facilities; the administration’s lack of response to terrorist attack resulting in the 9/11/2012 Benghazi loss of 4 American lives (Including Ambassador Stevens); running guns to Mexican cartel that resulted in the death of a border patrol agent; the Hillary Clinton missing emails and mishandling of classified documents while Obama’s Secretary of State; drawdown of American military and others to include allowing the fake Russian Collusion Dossier to be used in an attempt to invalidate his successor in office President Donald Trump.
Referring to Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) who was the former chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that had conducted a number of investigations on the Obama Administration
“Here’s a guy who called my administration perhaps the most corrupt in history, despite the fact that actually, we have not had a major scandal in my administration,” Obama told Democratic donors.
From the very beginning there have been stories circulated about the playboy lifestyle, marriages and even about Donald Trump being a draft dodger whose rich father paid off a doctor to keep him out of military service during the Vietnam War Era. Granted Donald Trump was no choir boy but Fred Trump was no slouch either.
Donald Trump grew up in New York back in the late 1950s and as he began to get into mischief his father sent him to the New York Military Academy. During his 5 years at the academy Donald becoming involved in sports (baseball and boxing) and excelled with military discipline and training under the guidance of Colonel Dobias a hardened combat veteran of World War II.
Fred Trump worked hard and insisted that his son Donald learn the trade literally from the ground up. How many presidents or politicians can run a plumb-line? In fact he learned every facet of building, to include obtaining permits and contracting. In the construction field as in his everyday life “good enough” was never the standard, with Donald it was excellence. He learned from NYMA that winning was everything, it was the only thing!
It was many years before he formally took over the business from his father, but one thing Trump learned early on was branding. He learned from his father that any job worth doing was worth doing right the first time. Trump believed in being proud of what he built, so branding the Trump name was his way of declaring that not only was the project done right, but it was beyond being good, it was built with a standard of excellence.
Many people confuse Trumps branding with self-absorption or a huge ego. I’m sure his ego had a lot to do with it and it is his personality and within his character to keep others at a distance. Everything and everyone is calculated as to whether or not they are contributors to enhance the bottom line – Winning.
“It’s a very imperfect world, and you can’t always choose your friends. That’s life. But you can never fail to recognize your enemies.” – President Donald J. Trump
Donald Trump has been politically active his entire adult life. Not as a politician, but often as a political supporter of politicians who he likes or believes in their ability to deliver on their campaign promises. It would be interesting to see the names, dates and amounts of Donald Trump’s political contributions and their political party affiliations. Although conservative he has been a Democrat until recent years.
I can see how Donald Trump’s triumphant entry into the 2016 political campaign cycle was designed to make a statement like on other. It did. The grand elegance of Trump Tower, coming down the escalator with Melania Trump at his side caught the nation and the world of politics by storm. A storm it has been from day one. The media feeding frenzy has not let up one bit since that 2015 day at Trump Tower.
The sad thing about this is how the political community have closed ranks and made it their mission to stop Trump at any and all cost. Many of these same politicians were all too glad to receive those campaign contributions and have their pictures taken with the Rich and Famous Donald Trump, but now refuse to acknowledge that he is their president.
One thing that has not changed is President Donald J. Trump’s commitment to America.
“I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace, than to risk peace in pursuit of politics. As president I will always put what is best for America and what is best for the American people.” – President Donald J. Trump
The mood in America is beginning to change and just as the political elite prepare to go to battle for the 2020 Presidential Elections. Even so it’s a great time to be American and to give Almighty God thanks for this land that we love and for a President who is not apologetic when it comes to the free expression of worship to the creator God.
“America has always been the land of dreams because America is a nation of true believers. When the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, they prayed. When the Founders wrote the Declaration of Independence, they invoked our creator four times, because in America we don’t worship government, we worship God. That is why our elected officials put their hands on the Bible and say “so help me God” as they take the oath of office. It is why our currency proudly declares “in God we trust.” And it’s why we proudly proclaim that we are one nation under God, every time we say the Pledge of Allegiance.” – President Donald J. Trump
I urge you to lay aside your pre-conceived ideas and notions of who, what or why Donald Trump is or aspires to be. Let Trump be Trump!
Trump is a man on a mission for truth, justice and the American way. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
