Say what you will, he’s a leader. He steps up fast and gets results. Does he have problems? Problems are part of the human condition but Donald Trump is not traditional at all. Dennis Prager said this about the 45th president of the United States:
“Do conservatives — or non-leftists, for that matter — appreciate just how terrific Donald Trump has been as president? And how lucky we are that he won the presidency?
What I do know is that they ought to be deeply appreciative of him, and deeply grateful for luck or providence, and certainly for Trump himself, that he was elected president. First, it is unlikely that any other Republican would have defeated Hillary Clinton. Second, he has not only surpassed many of our expectations but also thus far governed in a manner more consistent with conservative principles than any president since Ronald Reagan, and arguably Calvin Coolidge.
For myself, I don’t think there’s any question that Donald Trump is a very imperfect vessel and that everyone wishes he did many things differently. And I think Trump’s election was just as much, if not more, about Barak Obama’s left-wing overreach and Hilary Clinton’s spectacular flaws, as it was about Trump’s skill in articulating the dramatic change that resonated with middle America. I am thankful that his campaign found a path to victory, and I think, policywise, he is on his way to becoming one of our greatest presidents.
