I read a very eye-opening view this morning of how (and why) Trump will end the year with a LOT of momentum.
Congress is likely to soon pass a tax reform bill. Judge Roy Moore is favored to win next week’s Senate election in Alabama with Trump’s support. The Supreme Court has acquiesced to Trump’s travel ban for now (while it waits for the lower courts to rule). The Supreme Court offers hope to social conservatives in the Masterpiece Cake-shop case, facilitated by Trump’s appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the bench. The economy is booming. Blue-collar wages are on the rise.
This isn’t to say that Trump’s presidency couldn’t still end in his removal from office. But even if it does, that day is still a long way off, and will likely depend on massive Democratic gains in next year’s midterms. (Which at this point is very unlikely).
Numerous big-time Democratic lawmakers and Trump antagonists who have long portrayed themselves as champions of women have been revealed to be not only serial harassers themselves, but also hypocrites.
Is Trump more of a “leader” and “go-getter” than we give him credit for?
The author ends with something I’ve long said…Trump will “succeed” NOT because of any great competence or leadership skills that he has (because he has very little of either…)
He will “succeed” because of the greater incompetence, and often hypocrisy, of his opposition.
