Like it or not, Donald Trump has dibs on the famous seat in the White House. He wants more than anything to run this country, if for nothing less; he wants to handle the financial debt. True, Trump is a successful business man and he has made several wise decisions in his days. However, having all the money he does doesn’t make him fit to run the country and face leaders. His new campaign says that he is worth more than $10 billion dollars. Last year alone he made over $350 million in income. But do the American people see this as more hype than ability to run a country that is in perilous times? Some think he’s the answer, but other’s aren’t convinced.
He is more of a celebrity than a politician, but perhaps that will get him the recognition he needs to get elected. A wealth statement was released this week that showed his assets and his net worth. It’s a political move to show how financially secure he is. It’s clear Trump is not in it for the money; he has other things in mind. That salary that the president gets would be chump change to the billionaire. Analysts are not convinced that he is actually making as much money as he says he is. Forbes magazine has been following Trump for more than three decades. What they have found is that he is probably embellishing a bit for the sake of the campaign.
The thought of Trump for president is strange to some people who are used to watching him on TV. However, given the candidates that are out there now, he is one of the better options. He will run under the Republican Party if nominated and his support seems to be rising as quickly as his bank account. How would Trump handle foreign policy, fix Obama Care, and deal with other officials of other nations?
If anyone looks at his reputation from his famous show “Celebrity Apprentice,” he lacks that certain charm and charisma that is needed to help get the job done. A great deal of things has been said about Obama, but he was never unkind or arrogant. Trump would give new meaning to the word “unapproachable.” What about calling the Mexican people all sorts of names and getting thrown off his famous show by NBC? Doesn’t sound like he’s being too charming by calling names to the Mexican people and many of these people are living and voting in this country.
Still, the American people like what the Trump has to say. It doesn’t matter what mistakes he has made in the past and who he has offended, he very well may be the next president of the United States. With the choices being between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it looks like the only loser in this race will be America.
