Op-Ed: Republicans want to win — and Trump’s now a loser
I am a Republican. I have been a Republican for years and years and years. No I don’t have the stomach to say it.
But let me tell you something, I am very disappointed with Donald Trump.
There are a lot of reasons why. I am disappointed with his foreign policy (a lot of people who voted for him), I am disappointed with his economic policies and a lot of other reasons. But let me tell you something, I am really disappointed with him for a lot of reasons. It is one of the reasons why I am writing this piece.
I am not giving his opponents too much credit. I think that his supporters are not as ‘devastated’ as they think they are. They are not as ‘disappointed’ as they think they are.
I did vote for him, I voted for him and have voted for him. At that time he said ‘I’m not saying that we have to be stupid, but we are going to have to be smarter.’
And look at the economy. Look at the tax cuts that he gave and they paid for themselves, even with the tax cuts, by the time they are fully phased in because of the economic slowdown. The economic slowdown happened, I’m sorry but it happened.
The jobs report was not good, that’s all. Not spectacular but it was a little better than expected. I guess the only bright spot was the rise in employment. That’s what you need, a rise in employment. I mean when your economy is slowing down, you need an increase in employment.
Trump is smart, he is a smart businessman.
Donald Trump is not an incompetent, not an idiot. He just did not want to deal with the economy the right way. He is just not the ‘great communicator’ he is supposed to be, that’s all.
But let me tell you something, Donald Trump is not a loser. He did not resign. He is not a loser, he is not a loser and he did not resign. But
