In many ways, Ive never been a big fan of Donald Trump. I saw him as an arrogant snobbish extremely wealthy individual who had no concept what most Americans face in todays society.
However, my opinion of him has been changing over the past year. When he was contemplating a run for the White House, I was skeptical until I started to listen to some of the things he said and as much as I hated to admit it, he made sense. Trump also jumped up a notch in my opinion when he came out in support of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his investigation into Barack Obamas birth certificate.
Today, I listened to an interview he did with John LeBoutillier from Newsmax. Much to my surprise I found myself agreeing with most of what Trump said. He spoke of how China is bleeding us dry and that Mitt Romney is the only one talking about it and saying that it needs to be fixed. He also touched on how OPEC is determined to rip us off as much as they can.
But one of the things that he said that really made things clear was when he said that America is under a wet blanket. There is something putting a damper on all of the country and until that damper or wet blanket is removed, any kind of recovery will be difficult.
That wet blanket is Barack Obama and his administration. Trump believes that just defeating Obama in November can go a long way to lifting that wet blanket and allowing America to breathe again. With that in mind, LeBoutillier asked Trump if others have approached him about funding a super PAC in support of any one candidate. His response was,
Yes they have, and I am thinking about just doing my own super PAC.
There was a recent [anti-Obama] commercial done where they made him look like a superhero. Im saying, who made this commercial? I thought it was one of the worst commercial Ive ever seen.
If I did one I would show how bad were doing as a country, how disrespected we are as a country. I would show people from OPEC, 11 people sitting around a beautiful gold-encrusted table talking about how they are going to continue to rip off the United States.
I would do one on China and talk about the manipulation of their currency, which is draining the blood out of this country. We could stop that very easily. All we have to do is impose a 25 percent tax on their products coming in. Somebody would say, Oh gee, what about free trade? Well, Im a believer in fair trade, not necessarily free trade. We dont have fair trade. You try to do business in China. Its very, very hard. Its a one-way street.
My super PAC ads would be focused on how outside places and outside things are absolutely sucking the blood out of this country, and this country cant be great again unless it really starts to generate money. You cant fund Medicare, you cant fund Social Security, unless we start to generate money, and we cant because outside sources are taking our money. Were like children with a wallet and theyre just taking the money right out of our wallet.
Listen for yourself to part of the interview and see if what he has to say makes sense to you:
After listening to Trumps interview, I almost wish he had run for office. Perhaps what America needs most right now is successful businessman who knows how to run a profitable company. Someone willing to make the tough decisions of where to trim and cut wasteful spending and expenses while at the same time taking advantage of the more profitable areas.
When Mitt Romney begins to form his cabinet, I hope that he considers Donald Trump for either Secretary of Commerce, Treasury Secretary or even make him a personal finance advisor. Between Romney and Trumps business backgrounds, I sure they can accomplish a lot to stem the economic slide, that is if Congress will let them.
Celebrity Apprentice this season was gay galore though.
Sounds like fun. I hope he doesn’t pull any punches.
We'd still be better off.
And now that he’s got the gay thing out of the way....let’s get on with it...
Wait... Isn't that the candidate that we ended up with?
I wish these guys would just DO things instead of announcing what they MIGHT do and then media lays down a barrage of withering fire until they chicken out. (e.g. Chicago Cubs owners WAS going to highlight Rev Wright. Whoa Nelly!)
Translation from the metaphorical to the literal: Trump wants to stop Obama from waterboarding America.
Then in 2 years, Politically Bi-polar Donald Trump May Create Super PAC Just to Re-elect Harry Reid, again.
LOL!! Graphic of the day. You should put “ABO” right on the artist’s dummy. That must be a very big one to have the articulated fingers, and expensive. I have several little wooden posable figures...
Nice gesture, but spend a few to elect more Republicans to Congress, as well.
Hillary can’t help him, this election is about him. And Frankly she has creepy old lady hair now, she couldn’t get elected herself looking like that.
It would benefit him to dumb Biden for anyone else though.
