What is so appealing about Mr. Trump? Aside from the “he’s self-funded, is an outside, non-establishment candidate and isn’t being bought by interest groups,” there is one extremely appealing quality to his candidacy. He seems like a person who can actually make decisions and lead.
He seems to have a firm grasp on his own gut take on issues and then, miraculously, acts and speaks with conviction. In juxtaposition to our current president, he presents as a passionate American leader, overtly expressing visceral appreciation and intrinsic value for the American experience.
Trump would find Congress extremely detrimental to action and decision-making. He seems like a person who could very likely face impeachment for some breach of executive branch procedure.
The person who is an excellent candidate isn’t on the ballot. Paul Ryan. I can’t wait to cast my vote for him when he finally does reach the maturity to run for president of the United States.
For Trump supporters and critics, there is another consideration. Becoming president is a life changer. Mr. Trump could very well be an excellent president if the actual mantle of responsibility was placed on his shoulders. Or it could be a great American disaster.
