Chrarles Krauthammer Lauds Praise On Donald Trump

Charles Krauthammer’s view on Donald Trump (Presented without edits, including spacing).

A different take on Donald Trump: (a non-political agenda)

Trump Is Not A Liberal or Conservative, He’s a “Pragmatist.”

(Definition: A pragmatist is someone who is practical and
focused on reaching a goal. A pragmatist usually has a
straightforward, matter-of-fact approach and doesn’t let
emotion distract him or her.)

“We recently enjoyed a belated holiday dinner with
friends at the home of other friends. The dinner
conversation varied from discussions about antique glass and  china to theology and politics.

At one point, reference was made to Donald Trump being a  conservative, to which I responded that Trump is not a

I said that I neither view nor do I believe Trump views
himself as a conservative. I stated it was my opinion that
Trump is a pragmatist. He sees a problem and understands it  must be fixed. He doesn’t see the problem as liberal or  conservative, he sees it only as a problem. That is a quality                                                                  that should be admired and  applauded, not condemned.                                                                                  But I get ahead of myself.

Viewing problems from a Liberal perspective have resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs,more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.

Viewing things according to the so-called Republican
conservative perspective has brought continued spending and  globalism to the detriment of American interests and well  being, denial of what the real problems are, weak,
ineffective, milquetoast, leadership
that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff, appeasement
oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has
brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot
juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.

Immigration isn’t a Republican problem; it isn’t a
Liberal problem, it is a problem that threatens the very
fabric and infrastructure of America. It demands a pragmatic  approach not an approach that is intended to appease one group or another.

The impending collapse of the economy wasn’t a Liberal
or Conservative problem, it is an American problem. That
said, until it is viewed as a problem that demands a common
sense approach to resolution, it will never be fixed because
the Democrats and Republicans
know only one way to fix things and the longevity of their
impracticality has proven to have no lasting effect.

Successful businessmen like Donald Trump find ways to make things work, they do not promise to accommodate.

Trump uniquely understands that China’s manipulation of
currency is not a Republican problem or a Democrat problem.
It is a problem that threatens our financial stability and
he understands the proper balance needed to fix it.
Here again, successful businessmen like Trump who have
weathered the changing tides of economic reality understand
what is necessary to make business work, and they, unlike
both sides of the political aisle, know that if something
doesn’t work, you don’t continue trying to make it work hoping that at some point it will.

As a pragmatist, Donald Trump hasn’t made wild
pie-in-the-sky promises of a cell phone in every pocket,
free college tuition, and a $15 hour minimum wage for working the drive-through at Carl’s Hamburgers.

I argue that America needs pragmatists because pragmatists
see a problem and find ways to fix them. They do not see a
problem and compound it by creating more problems.

You may not like Donald Trump, but I suspect that the reason
people do not like him is because:

(1) he is antithetical to the “good old boy”
method of brokering backroom deals that fatten the coffers
of politicians;

(2) they are unaccustomed to hearing a president speak who
is unencumbered by the financial shackles of those who he
owes vis-a-vis donations;

(3) he is someone who is free of idiomatic political

(4) he says what he is thinking, is unapologetic for his
outspoken thoughts, speaks very straightforward using
everyday language that can be understood by all (and is
offensive to some who dislike him anyway) making him a great
communicator, for the most part,
does what he says he will do and;

(5) he is someone who understands that it takes more than
hollow promises and political correctness to make America
great again.

Listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders talk about
fixing America is like listening to two lunatics trying to
“out crazy” one another. Jeb Bush, John Kasich and
Marco Rubio are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the
bankers, corporations, and big dollar
donors funding their campaigns. Bush can deny it, but
common sense tells anyone willing to face facts is that
people don’t give tens of millions without expecting something in return

We have had Democrats and Republican ideologues and what has
it brought us? Are we better off today or worse off? Has it
happened overnight or has it been a steady decline brought
on by both parties?

I submit that a pragmatist is just what America needs right
now. People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as
arrogance, but that is common among those who have never   accomplished anything in their lives (or politicians who> never really solved a problem,

because it’s better to still have an “issue(s) to
be solved,” so re-elect me to solve it, (which never  happens) and those who have always played it safe (again,
all politicians) not willing to risk failure, to try and
achieve success).

Donald  Trump put his total financial empire at risk in running for
president and certainly did not need or possibly even
want the job; that says it all.

He  wants success for the U.S. and her citizens because he loves his country !!!!!!
