What Republicans Don’t Get About Trump

7

Establishment types in both parties don’t understand the sudden popularity of a Donald Trump or a Bernie Sanders. They don’t understand that what both of these men have in common is they tell the truth and they stand up for what they believe in. They both exhibit courage.

Establishment Republicans have been tripping all over themselves to lambast Trump for his comments about Mexicans, but most people realize he didn’t mean all Mexicans. Does anyone really believe Trump is a bigot who hates all Mexicans?

As inartful as his comments were, he struck a chord  just as Sanders has with his honest, no holds-barred, radical socialist approach to campaigning.

The Republicans were elected in the House and the Senate to do something about the lawless administration. They ignored that mandate and have since tried to convince us they have a mandate to compromise. They think this is a normal administration and that what is happening is business as usual.

The Democratic Party is being led by the far-left and the rest go along. There is no compromising with them.

Establishment Republicans are pandering to minorities in the hopes of gaining their votes and they are losing the very people who got them into office and who could swing the 2016 election in their favor. If they want to win minority votes, all they would have to do is present a strong, honest platform that deals with the country’s problems. Minorities want the same thing everyone else wants, a good economy, jobs, a home, and I doubt they all hope for open borders and illegal immigration.

As much as I like Charles Krauthammer and Jonah Goldberg, their jumping on Trump along with the pack doesn’t serve the party. They think he’s hurting Republicans and he might be but not for the reasons they think. The main reason he’s hurting them is because he’s doing something the others fail to do.

Trump responded to Krauthammer’s and Goldberg’s comments during the Katie Tur show on MSNBC.

Republican candidates need to stop responding to the Democrats who tell them to attack Trump.

Rand Paul became popular for taking stands and not backing down. That is what Trump is doing now.

Republicans need to send the message that they will speak the truth, even if it isn’t acceptable to some. Obviously the truth isn’t that all Mexicans are a problem and most coming in do just want to feed their families and have a better life, but the truth is we have a deadly serious immigration problem in this country and we are doing nothing about that.

Donald Trump is starting to go after Common Core and lambasted Jeb Bush for his pro-Core stance. As he said, “What? He wants Washington to educate our kids now?”  He also took Bush to the woodshed for his weak approach to illegal immigration, referencing his comment about people coming here illegally out of love.

People know there are a lot of drug dealers and probably terrorists and other infiltrators coming across.

The media and the pundits can rail on Trump but they can’t change peoples’ minds as much as they might try.

The more companies who drop his business unfairly and the more people who insult him, the more people he will win to his side. They’re all overreaching in an effort to dispatch him. There are some excellent candidates out there and they need to do a better job of taking on issues like illegal immigration. They might want to start talking about the Constitution and the freedoms we are losing under this administration.

Trump was on Greta Van Susteren’s show last evening and explained why he’s doing what he’s doing and why he thinks he’s popular.

  1. Hurt the Republican Party? Hell no. Were that the case, Trumps poll numbers wouldn’t be nearly as high.
    Those who see claim he is not a serious candidate…well, Trump has a history of, “laughing all the way to the bank,” and I have a feeling, this will be no exception.
    I used to think he had no chance to be a nominee but am having second and third thoughts about it.
    Because Trump owes nothing to nobody, does not need to pander to any special interest nor adhere to strict political correctness attempting to win some love of the media, he is the only one among the very large Republican pack who can afford to speak, not P.C. but t.r.u.t.h.

  2. I have always liked Donald but to be honest, I never thought that I would consider him for the job of president of the United States. here is why I have changed my opinion and why I believe Donald is exactly what we need,
    1. He speaks the truth. period. and that is what we need. Guiliani helped us to all cope with the tragedy of 911 by doing the same. We are not children, we deserve the truth. When did our leaders decide that the only people who were entitled to the truth were the elite. They decided this when they all began to lie to us.
    2. Donald can not be bullied by the liberal PC police. He will not be shamed into flip flopping because liberals accuse him of being racist. Big deal, he made a speech and his comments came out wrong. Donald is not racist and it is true. mexico is not sending us their hard working, law abiding people. The mexican govt is doing what Cuba did in the 80’s, sending us the worst of the worst. yes, there are good people mixed in but by having such porous borders we are not considering the dangers these poor people face trying to come here. AND LETS FACE IT, THEY ARE ALL BREAKING OUR LAWS BY IGNORING OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS, AND THEN OUR DRIVING AND EMPLOYMENT LAWS. SO YES, THEY ARE ALL CRIMINALS.
    3. AND FINALLY, WE NEED A PRESIDENT WHO WILL STOP THE SOCIALISTIC TAKE OVER OF AMERICA. Does anyone truly believe that this president cares for any of us. Look at the shape we are in as a country. he has used his office to divide us all. America was not the racist country of 1940. We had changed. IS THIS NEW LGBT AMERICA, WITH NO ACTUAL LAWS BEING FOLLOWED, WHERE OUR KIDS ARE BEING TAUGHT THAT 2 PLUS 2 IS A 30 STEP PROCESS, DOES ANYONE BELIEVE THIS IS FOR THE GOOD OF ANYONE. ASK YOURSELVES THIS…’WHY ARE THEY DUMBING DOWN OUR KIDS?’
    DONALD TRUMP IS JUST WHAT WE NEED. SOMEONE WHO WILL NOT BE POLITICALLY AFRAID TO FIX WHAT IS BROKEN. SOMEONE WHO WILL STAND FOR CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERALS,

    • Someone asked him if, with all the fallout, he’s going to throw in the towel. He said, “Who me? Why would I do that? I’m having the time of my life.” The pressure would kill a lesser man; that is why we need him. These critics don’t get him. Everything they see that’s negative is a positive and will benefit we, the people. He doesn’t give a rat’s ass what anyone else thinks, is incapable of saying anything but the truth, and will give Congress hell as well as kick illegals out of here. What more could Americans want?

  3. Yes I would vote for Donald Trump. We need an honest, business man instead of PC politicians who are only concerned with getting re elected. Our country has become the laughing stock of the world. We’ve lost our first amendment rights. Mostly because most voters don’t know what they are and are only concerned with what the government can give them.

  4. First off Donald Trump is not bought and paid for like 99% of the politicians in Washington DC he has his own money and if he loses some he still going to be ok he can’t be bribed because he doesn’t need to be bribed he is speaking the truth I believe and if he doesn’t quite know how to fix a problem in this country I’m sure the man will figure it out he’s pretty savvy in his business ways we don’t need another politician who lies to us and has his own agenda and then when he gets in forgets all about his promises to the American people I like Donald and I’ll vote for him too
