HONESTLY, WHY WOULD ANYONE VOTE FOR TRUMP?
few days ago someone I don't know asked this question on ... Facebook
and a mutual friend (knowing I am a Trump supporter), tagged me and
asked me to answer the question. Here was my reply:
am a Trump supporter for several reasons. I believe that our country is
at a critical tipping point and we don't have another presidential term
to figure this out.
care costs are out of control, our labor participation rate is at a 50
year low, we have no borders, jobs are leaving by the thousands, the
debt service on our national debt is nearing a point we cannot pay it.
The average person hasn't had an increase in pay in 12 years.
Over half the black men in our country are out of work. We are more
divided than I can ever remember and I'm over 60 years old. We are at
the brink of losing our country.
top of that we spend money we don't have fighting wars we shouldn't be
in, and cannot win. We pay over a hundred other countries billions of
dollars a year and our military are the policemen for the world. We must
fix this mess ASAP.
before I give you my reasons, I need to share my perspective. I am an
evangelical Christian but I don't believe it is the role of government
to legislate morality. I am a service connected disabled veteran having
served in the US Army as a paratrooper.
started my second career as an auto mechanic and worked my way up to
owning 12 auto repair franchises. I then sold them and began a new
career in real estate, building my own company to over 150 agents.
in 2003 I invented a technology that put me on CNN and I began selling
that software to real estate agents internationally. I've written 14
books, thousands of trade articles and have trained over 1,000,000 real
estate agents in specific professional skills.
employed over a thousand people during that time, and until a month ago
have been a registered democrat. Okay, now that you know where I'm
coming from, here are my reasons:
his resume. Of everyone running for president, Trump is the only one
who has ever employed anyone. He is the only one who has any experience
in international trade. He is the only one who understands the impact of
our tax laws and government regulation on companies and jobs.
has made a fortune turning around failed companies. He's worked
complicated deals all over the world, negotiating with governments,
labor unions, and international financiers. These skills are not learned
overnight and we don't have time for another life-long politician and
attorney to get up to speed.
is his character. He is tough as nails. His children are pretty
awesome. You can tell a lot about somebody by their kids. He is brutally
honest as opposed to being politically correct. His employees and his
ex-employees have nothing but praise for him. Even his ex-wives have
nothing bad to say about him. Check it out.
is his success. He has built hundreds of successful businesses. One of
his companies declared bankruptcy (chapter 11 or reorganization) four
separate times before ultimately saving the company. All creditors were
paid and jobs were saved. Bottom line is he is just a very good
is that he is a great negotiator. In fact, he wrote the book on
negotiation -- The Art of the Deal, an international best-seller. If we
are to save this country we need someone who can work with people of
differing opinions. Congress is grid locked. We need to work new trade
agreements with other nations. We need to renegotiate treaties.
Trump is a nationalist and not a globalist. He believes that our
country comes first. We need to enforce our borders and the rule of law.
He believes it is not our job to defend the whole world. He believes
that if we do help countries with their defense, we should be paid for
he has great instincts. He predicted the rise of Osama bin Laden. He
predicted a terror attack on a major US city. He opposed the war in Iraq
although every other candidate but Bernie Sanders was in favor of the
war. He opposed it because it would destabilize the middle east. He got
out of the gaming industry before it crashed. Great instincts.
he is a natural leader. Even those who don't like him are following his
lead. He has single-handedly set the agenda for this election cycle. He
is respected internationally as well as in our nation. He oozes
he is a great communicator and persuader. He is a master at using the
media to advance his narrative. He totally understands the media. He
built the most successful reality show in the history of television.
These are skills he will need if he is to turn this country around.
I have studied him. I read his first book in 1987 and realized he was a
brilliant businessman. I've watched hundreds of hours of speeches,
media interviews, read thousands of articles about him, several of his
books, and studied his successes and his failures. He is the real deal. I
challenge anyone to study him and not support him.
I have to look at what motivates him. Most politicians are motivated by
money and/or power. Trump already has both. He has a history of being a
patriot, from his military high school, to now. He has a huge ego, like
every other candidate running. The difference is he is honest about
think he sees our nation at a critical place and he knows that he has
the unique skill set to fix the problems. If he does, he will go down in
history as being one of the greatest presidents ever.
you understand him, you know that his legacy is important to him (his
name on all his buildings and companies). I even believe he is funding
his own campaign so he won't owe favors or loyalties to special
interests. When you evaluate his motivations you can't help but admire
remembered one more reason. Everyone is about to blow a gasket over
him. The establishment republican party hates him and has actually been
actively trying to take down their own front runner. The establishment
democrat party hates him because they know he will crush Hillary in the
election, and the establishment media hates him because he totally
controls the news cycle and they cannot control him. Even the donor
class hates him because he cannot be bought. If all these people who I
cannot stand hate him, that only makes me love him more.
know who loves him? The regular people in this country. The ones who
work their asses off every day and haven't had a pay raise in over a
decade. The ones who pay the taxes and watch as their jobs get shipped
overseas or across the border. The ones who see their property values
going down because corrupt Big Banking blew up the housing market. The
ones whose retirement is in jeopardy because social security has been
raided and their 401Ks have been decimated by corrupt Wall Street.
again... these are my reasons. Today's primary election is probably the
most important election in your lifetime. This is not an exaggeration.
If you agree with me on any of these reasons, please get out and vote and together we can Make America Great Again!
about this: We've had politicians running our country for way too many
years and look at the results. Isn't it time we give a business person
the opportunity to show the way a country should be run.....like a
business, because that's what our country is!
