I, like many, had my doubts when I went to vote last November. I wasn’t convinced in my heart of hearts that my decision to vote for Donald Trump was the sagest idea I ever had. He was brash, earthy, condescending and rude. However his opponent was not an option.
For the past ten months I’ve seen the making of a president. What seemed to many to be an impossible choice, has developed into a strong leader, a man who loves America, an astute businessman who knows how to make a deal and one who takes his job seriously.
If you’ve been paying close attention to this man, you can’t help notice a change in his demeanor. His last two speeches – to the Air Force on their 70th anniversary and to the United Nations yesterday – resounded with strength, passion, love of country, willingness to stand up for it and true leadership. This has been lacking the presidential office for some time.
Usually you can tell by a person’s body language if they’re telling the truth or simply putting on an act. President Trump has either had some superior training in the past few month or his true self is surfacing. So far, during his short presidency, he’s had to deal with a media that seems bent on his destruction – a Republican party that’s been too wishy washy to defend him – a Democrat party that refuses to accept the results of the last election – two horrific hurricanes that ravaged the Southern edge of our country – a man who plays with weapons of mass directions as if they were toys – a radical group of Islamic dissidents who wish to eliminate us – allies who have lost faith in the strength of America. He hasn’t even completed one year!
In that time, he’s been successful in diverting the press. His tweets may seem absurd at times, but the press is having a field day with them, while he gets his work done. He’s gotten more people back to work. The stock market is at an all time high. He’s fighting for the American people and their safety. He is talking to our military like a true commander in chief. He continues to put new ideas out there and is willing to butt heads with his opponents.
Maybe it’s a time we start taking this guy seriously!
