Trump: He’s Winning By Playing A Long Game

Trump’s critics must have their heads in the sand. The man may not be an Ivy League linguist, but he is definitely a results-oriented super-achiever. He talks the people’s language.

The President pledged to Make America Great Again – to put America First Again – during his campaign. And that’s exactly what he is doing for the benefit of the American people.

Voters should not be voting for someone simply because he’s Prince charming. Rather, they should vote for someone who can lead and get the job done, i.e., as Trump said: Make America Great Again – Put America First Again.

Unfortunately, The Democrat Party and the left-wing media tend to focus on short-term feelings rather than strategic goals and objectives. The President’s job should be strategic – long-term, not short-term – accomplishing things that will have an enduring effect.

Pres. Trump and for that matter Republican Party members are on the receiving end of unrelenting criticism by the left-wing media. Consequently, Pres. Trump has taken it upon himself to communicate directly with the American people via twitter and speeches.

The media are angry that they are no longer the primary conduit for political news and commentary – that they are being bypassed by our determined President.

The same can be said for the embedded government bureaucracy as they strive to retain the excessive power they enjoyed under socialistic (Obama) administrations.

Hopefully, the American people – the American voters – will not be fooled by self-serving politicians and bureaucrats. Hopefully they will not be over-influenced by style, but rather will be focused on goals, objectives and results for the long term. Focusing for days on an inappropriate word or deed is to lose sight of the important strategic responsibilities of our Commander-in-Chief.

Below: Trump’s record-breaking first-year accomplishments as a fulfillment of his campaign representations:
