I’m going to assume that The New Yorker thinks this is a bad thing.
Trump is equal parts Reagan and Truman, with a dash of Andrew Jackson.
In some way yes, in some ways no.
Rather then try and compare him to anyone, just have to realize Trump is his own special type of President unlike anything that has come before.
Hes beyond Magnus in some ways
Many ways actually
I would like to think that Trump is the second coming of something more than that....
I love him but I’m not going that far, lol.
“Trump is equal parts Reagan and Truman, with a dash of Andrew Jackson.”
And part Great Pumpkin
It’s a mealy-mouthed story, but at least it does not say that Trump is very similar to Hitler.
No. Reagan was hated by some parts of the GOP, and had to work hard to bring it together (Saddling us with the Bush family at the top of the ticket); Trump has parts of the GOP actively trying to ruin him and/or remove him from office, and the rest of it saying nothing. He’s on his own. Reagan at least had some party support.
Just remember...for all the good he did, Reagan also gave us FOPA and amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
The real question is this: Were there any available between Reagan and Trump? Names please. Why didn’t they rise?
Adolf Hitler was a National Socialist, like Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and many other Democrats. President Trump is a capitalist.
You nailed it.
That would be a very short list. All of those GOP governors from the late 80’s and early 90’s, but none of them could surpass Bob Dull. Only George II could make it to the top.
Trump is Trump.
He cuts his own path.
The path back to the Constitution after the Kenyanesian Usurpation and the attempted coup is rocky and difficult.
He is having to battle the Ministry of Propaganda, the Democrats, the Bush League Republicans, most of the federal government, including the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc., on top of dealing with the rest of the world.
If he restores the rule of law, he may surpass all but Washington.
If he’s around at the end of 2024...I don’t think you can make any comparison to Reagan, or any previous President.
I think the North Korea problem will be finalized, and the US troops removed from North Korea. I think most of US troops will be removed from Germany, and repositioned in Poland and the UK. I think that a major effort to build a UK relationship (with May having moved on) will occur after BREXIT. I think that the SK/NK relationship will be a major factor. I think that by the end of 2019...Trump will be a factor in Venezuela, by helping to remake the government there. I also think that Iran will be forced into a corner, with some type of banking failure, with a coup of some type....with the US building on a new relationship there.
The surface hasn’t even been scratched yet.
