Donald Trump is not the enigma many claim him to be. He's first a self promoter, second a businessman and third a man who loves competition, so long as he wins. Yes he is gruff and insulting, but he can also be extremely generous. But above all he is a highly successful man who wants to leave a lasting legacy. With all his many accomplishments the question persists, what's left to accomplish? There's only one prize left that would solidify his need to be remembered as the greatest capitalist of all time. What is it? President of the United States.
I don't for a minute believe he really wants to be tied down to a job that requires constant, unrelenting attention, but I will vote for him simply because to not vote will give victory to the queen of Benghazi. It will be interesting to see what happens when the Trump management style meets head on with the nightmare that is Washington DC. With all his experience I doubt that he has seen the likes of public sector unions, lobbyists, bribery, corruption, dishonesty and the blatant incompetence that he'll find awaiting him in the nation's capitol.
I don't see him as a hands on manager. He's a board room CEO that depends on VPs and division heads to do the day-to-day dirt work. (Heaven help the ones who fail). Neither does he want to rely on a pyramid of bureaucratic minions, that can't be fired, to manage the endless layers of bureaucracy that's strangling our nation. That's not how he ran his empire, and that's not why he wants to be President. (It's the ultimate prize, remember?
He loves to compete and will do whatever is necessary to win. Once he wins the ultimate prize his legacy will be secured. He will then be able to boast that he was the best President ever. I seriously hope he can do that in all honesty, though doubts remain.
I fully expect that he'll make efforts to do the things he's promised during the campaign. The challenge will come when left wing liberal politicians and RINOs steadfastly refuse to do anything that makes him or conservatives looks good. He's not accustomed to underlings refusing his demands. He will go to the bully pulpit and voice his anger, but his anger will be nullified by the constant drumbeat of a far left anti-Trump, anti-conservative media.
Even though I was a Cruz fan, I hope and pray that Mr. Trump can stop the downward spiral that is America, and truly return it to greatness. He will certainly having many obstacles working diligently against him.
Having said that, I expect him to be a 1-term president for 3 reasons. (1) He can't allow the left wing onslaught to destroy him and his legacy; (2) spitting mad frustration; and (3) he will come to realize that the country is in such horrible shape that even he can't save it. With that he'll climb aboard his private jet and fly off into the sunset.
