Trump Trumpets!

Donald J. Trump

I have been watching the news this morning especially the American Political debates. Now whether or not you like it, Donald Trump is telling the truth as he sees it.

He is seen as a very loud, very rich, very powerful individual. However, what the other politicians are missing, what they cannot see, is that he has very strong beliefs and very strong convictions.  He is not just rolling out a political party agenda, he’s not looking to get elected by just saying whatever he thinks the people would elect him on, this is why inside the Republican party he carries true conviction.

If you listen to the other Republican candidates they troop out the bland safe middle of the road policies which they think will get them elected. You cannot hear any conviction in their voices, you cannot hear strong beliefs, these are just ‘work-a-day hacks’ who wish to safeguard their position in the political system and for that you do not need beliefs because politicians do not have beliefs.

Donald Trump is a rare creature, he believes in what he is doing, his beliefs and convictions in business have made him the powerhouse he is today.

Regardless of country and drawing from my time with the Labour Party I cannot get this quote from ‘Hunt for Red October’ out of my mind: “I am a politician and while I am kissing the babies I am stealing their lollypops”.  Don’t go there Donald, stay true to your beliefs.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
