Yeah, except in 2015 Trump was a political unknown, a true dark horse.

Except that he wasn't. We have known Trump for decades.

One reason I supported him is that I counted on his decades of public life to inoculate him against leftist tactics like paying women to suddenly claim publicly that candidate x sexually assaulted them 35 years ago. I underestimated the left, though. When it turned out that we know Trump too well for bogus accusations to work, they just set about framing him and wasting tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to do it.

The other thing about Trump is his qualifications. If you look at government as comparable to a business with a specific mission and function, then who better to select as its CEO a man with a proven track record of success? Having a successful businessman as President has worked out every bit as well as I thought it would. We need more rational businessmen to be president, not lawyers.

You’re absolutely right. But PDJT was a little difficult to peg ideologically at first; I supported Ted Cruz and voted against Hillary in 2016. But Trump has grown into his role as a conservative leader, and has done so very well.

Amen, I have long thought that one of the greatest problems we have is that almost all those who MAKE our laws are LAWYERS! That seems like a recipe for disaster to me. Would we allow Jesse and Frank James to design bank vaults?
