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.
Never miss a local story.
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.
