When citizen Trump stepped forward to run for president in the 2016 election, I was elated. Our Founding Fathers would also be. Here was a non-politician coming forward to serve his country as they thought it should be. He brought with him years of business experience, but he dealt with politicians from both parties extensively in his business life. Unlike all of the other challengers he faced, he was not groomed and trained for years by career political hacks. He owed to no one except the American voters.

He implemented his fresh ideas to run our government for the America people. He used electronic technology to keep us informed. Although he may have expressed too many “non presidential” comments, he did a great job.

The combination of a Chinese virus and the powerful interest groups ( news media, entertainers, RINOS, etc) influenced voters to “cut off their noses to spite their faces” and vote against President Trump. No-Nose voters chose a career political hack, who spent most of his life in congress bowing to lobbyist requests, while enriching himself and his family.

President Trump made inroads against the Washington D.C. swamp, but it was only a start. To move forward, he would have needed another term. As of the 2020 election, it looks like he’ll only have four years.

Now we have returned to business as usual, with a same old, same old party career president with no business experience. With the rough treatment Trump received as an outsider, what independent thinker with business experience and new ideas will step forward to be president? Who would have the strength to withstand the abuse suffered by the President?

President Trump may have been a storm at times but, in my opinion, the perfect storm our country needed. Industrial giants of the late 19th and early 20th century had similar personality traits and America and the American people benefited greatly.

To quote President Calvin Coolidge: “The business of America, is business.”

"He owed to no one except the American voters." You're kidding, right? trump is the self-proclaimed "king of debt." How can you be so gullible?


Another sheep, that will get exactly what he asked for. Biden and the liberals will run this country into the ground. They are about to show you what true debt is.


Things can only get better after what your boy did the last four years. You lost for a reason.


Let’s see, low gas prices, firm handle on immigration, lowest unemployment in countries history, dramatically improving va hospitals for veterans, filled two Supreme Court seats. You should try to read a non liberal newspaper or something. He did lose for a reason, mail in voter fraud mainly. With a touch of liberal cheating. Excellent observation.


Seems like you are the one who needs to stop consuming propaganda. More than 30 trump campaign lawsuits have failed and many rulings were scathing. You trumpkins really are an ignorant lot. Facts matter.
