I just want to make sure I'm understanding you correctly. Trump's agenda was directed at helping the country, not himself, right?
What evidence do you have of that?
Here you go. My contemplation, for you. Draw your own conclusions about Trump. As far as I'm concerned, his resume and abilities outweigh chickshit complaints.
Five of us were on an adventure and towing a caravan when one of the old wheel brakes on the tow'er gave out and locked up. It happened just when we were crawling through a construction zone, inching along, and that was a good thing because the brake was so hot I could smell it, even while barely moving. If we were driving any faster the wheel would have caught fire and that wouldn’t have been good.
We spent the night in a hotel while repairs were being made on the vehicle, while the caravan sat behind a retail establishment with permission from the owner, where we unhooked it so the tow'er could get towed.
That night I read Ann Coulter’s Adios America, and learned some things I didn’t know. Then I began to pay attention to Trump for the first time. I’d heard of him, seen his picture occasionally, knew he had a TV show that I never saw because I was always working, and doing other things.
I listened to Trump and saw that he was using Coulter’s book for his platform. In other words, he had concluded the same implications as Coulter that would follow from that present time in the history of the world, because Obama had already began flooding the country by flouting laws, and this was apparent.
The root of Trump’s platform was to wall off the southern border. That’s what got him elected. He didn’t get it done. He didn’t have the political connections to make the deal he promised he could make. Congress stopped his agenda by quibbling over about $5 billion, as I recall. How much has been given to Ukraine? I've heard about $100 billion directly, plus covering the salaries and pensions of Ukraine’s public workers for the civilians which I’ve heard is even more … all to protect Ukraine’s borders. Oh, the irony.
I'm sure that all those who ridiculed Trump for wanting to protect the southern border, even those here who did that ... remember those days.
Trump didn’t have the political savvy to deal with the swamp. I don’t think he does now. But he’s a sharp guy. He learns, he adapts even at his age. He may have found a way to go for broke and get down and dirty. He’s certainly angry enough. It would be wonderful to see him get elected and lay waste to all the corruption. Is it possible? I already said what I think.
Who the hell would want to work for Trump? Those who didn’t back-stab him were attacked and put into heavy debt defending themselves, having their reputations destroyed not by law but by the biased media. Who can Trump trust? The swamp is wide and deep and it stinks. Plus, Trump's platform doesn't have that central anchor like last time. Maybe it does, but who can hear it. The Left has him tied up with distraction. There are states not even letting him run for office, the SCOTUS just overruled one. (edit: I see it was a district court judge, not the Supremes).
This link is Trump’s resume as POTUS. What in this resume is not to benefit the country and the world?

What I’ve noticed is that after decades of hyperbole about “the most important election of our lifetime,”
, this one really is. Why? Because if Trump wins, there is one more chance, and the people feel it. That is the mood I’m detecting in the aether. But it’s just a chance. Why?
Because Biden is polling at an historic low for a president, and he has a good chance of winning the next election. All he needs to do is stay on his feet, and even then if another pandemic or similar situation can be inflated to an enormous existential crisis then he might be able to win just by napping on the couch and sitting up for camera every once in awhile, like he did for the 2020 election … and he still inspired 81 million votes (sarcasm) … imagine that, the old bird just had his 81st birthday party, probably with extra icing on the cake and a cookie. If that plot was fiction the editors outside of Bizarro World just may have rejected it.
That was forty minutes of my life (50 counting all that editing). Quid pro quo? Say Lucky, any tips for the lottery?
Hey, did you see the video of Ivanka walking into the courtroom, under supoena? (as I recall perhaps wrongly, but that's just incidental to the point) Awesome. Beautiful woman, very tall, high heels, walking like you better get out of her way, a composed look that said to the proceedings, FU!
