An odd look at the United Trump States of America

Now, we humans have heard numerous theories about America’s well-known President, Donald J. Trump. Well, I can assure you that you are about to hear another, so you might as well get prepared for it.

In my opinion, Mr Trump has no moral high ground – come to think of it, he never had any! Right from the start he intended and wanted to win, seeking victory, all the way to a tiptoe PotUS stalked by his own VP. So, you can be sure all this Michael Cohen business isn’t the first time this type of thing has occurred and, furthermore, not the last.

In his book, How to Get Rich, Trump summarized his life in just so many words:

I don’t do it for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks.

Here is a man who is never embarrassed or ashamed of anything he is accused of, from women to racism, this man just kept going on and on. I can’t say I do not admire his will, but nevertheless he plainly said it WASN’T for the money so what is or was it for?

I am not like Trump, indeed I am his opposite in many ways, since I am an idealist, I see a utopia everywhere, I  let my glance fall upon and sincerely hope to separate the best out of people and nations. Trump is in the here and now, a realist to the core if there ever was one, yet with a streak of a dreamer, a rather unconventional dreamer, socially and politically incorrect dreamer. I can not recall any President ANYWHERE in the world who has faced as much criticism before and during his tenure as this man has. Yet not only is he going strong, his reelection is perhaps a more likely possibility today then his dreary election back in 2017!

I think it all stacks down to realism. The democrats are acting rather like I would have in the situation, complaining about “rights & wrongs”, “could have”, “should have” and even “not have” in some cases. 

Trump is on a different boat; he takes America like his personal empire. It’s “The United Trump States” after Trump Towers to him, as a realist he takes ownership of America no differently as he does of Mar-a-Lago resort. For example, he takes America’s security akin to that of his personal property, the Mexicans and South Americans coming in through a porous US border described in the CAIRCO article is precisely what he’s been talking about for long and as of now, doing. One may not ignore the fact that most nations of the world do build walls or fences to keep intruders out, just like you and I do outside the perimeter of our house.

Trump took North Korea and Iran like no American President ever did. He seems to have a knack for developing genuine relationships with those Americans consider adversaries or at best are wary off, Putin, Kim Jong-Un, Trump never says no to anyone who wants to sit on the table and work it out, rather like he confessed in his book: How to get rich:Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals.

Which is what he seems to be busy doing all along, ignoring the naysayers and his detractors for he’s had them since time immemorial.

Will he make it? Will he end up making America safer, perhaps more unsafe due to the obvious polarization in America today. He is unpredictable and doesn’t fit any stereotype unlike any other in the limelight of oft. America’s right hand allies, Israel and the Jewish people are wary of him, while he garners a support base of white supremacists in general (or so it appears to his critics for I see many a rationalist supporting him too), his actions have defied their (KKK types) aspirations in the very least because at HEART Trump was and remains a TRUE DEMOCRAT – not a wolf in sheep’s clothing but an ACTUAL SHEEP DRESSED UP LIKE A WOLF!! Even if one speaks of immigration reforms, in my opinion, it has literally nothing to do with racism or supremacists, but simply a logical approach to immigrants most countries already have in place that America desperately needs.

If I speak the truth and NOTHING but the truth for no fear nor favor, I’d say he’s walking on uncharted territory, he has a genuine desire to make America great, to de escalate conflicts whether in Syria, Afghanistan, Indo-Pak or de nukes at NK or ex USSR, while holding on to his “empire” of Trump States of America, a neo protectionist liberal problem solver, or atleast a wannabe problem solver who challenged the moguls of foreign policy strategy. While Trump’s legacy will be remembered as the fallen white soldier by his proponents and the jerk off President by his opponents; America’s real adversaries, Putin, or Kim or many others would remember him with respect. A man who broke all stereotypes in dealing with them, for better or for worse, for only time can tell the impact of his actions.

For my part, I will remember Donald J. Trump as the man who dared to be himself in a world where every leader tries to wear the cloak of conformity. He may not strike the deals he dreams of but will be remembered for trying the impossible, as William F. O’ Brien wrote “Better to try and fail than never to try at all”
