Trump’s Legacy Could Rival FDR’s in Putting Americans Back to Work.

Trump is the most naturally gifted politician I have ever witnessed. I used to think that the greatest politicians in American history were Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, and Bill Clinton. But Trump leaves Bill Clinton in the dust.

He has uncanny abilities to read audiences, weigh public opinion, gauge reaction, and adjust his delivery and speech patterns to specific targets.

But his most impressive talent has yet to be seen by the American public: his skill at one-on-one negotiation. Trump is a master salesman. He built over 200 companies and made billions of dollars by sheer personal force of will.

Political pundits and detractors are going to be dumbfounded by Trump’s abilities in governing. Basing their opinions on stump speeches and rhetoric, observers will be surprised when Trump’s powerful personality and horse-trading nature forge alliances and agreements far beyond anyone’s expectations.

Trump campaigned on rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure. Bridges, roads, airports, ports, hospitals, inner city schools. He is not constrained by right wing ideology or political dogma. He is a pragmatic populist ready and able to cut political deals with whomever will advance his own agenda.

Rebuilding America’s infrastructure will be a key part of Trump’s legislative agenda. It will mean a jobs bill that will be far more progressive than even Bernie Sanders could hope for.

Trump is going to change the Republican party into a middle class worker’s party. And progressive Democrats will be his allies in the process.

  1. Infrastructure contracts probably won’t bring any decent opportunities to me. I don’t know what other people’s infrastructure issues are, but in my neighborhood the streets were fine and they got repaved anyway, which left a defective manhole cover that needed to be repaired multiple times. The local politicians bragged about this achievement, which was not more than government waste. We also have a new freeway which is defective in that it can’t accommodate rush hour traffic as there are only 2 lanes, with a 3rd that ends with incompetent motorists who don’t know how to merge. They illegally cram into the 2 lane and the police fail to ticket them. It’s bad.

    • I don’t know if they are bigots, but I wouldn’t trust any of them. My sense is that Trump is employing the management techniques that have served him in business. He hires people who know the ropes, but expects them to work in his interests. I don’t think he cares much what they personally think or have done, so long as they agree to do his bidding.

  2. I hope you are right but I just don’t believe it. We’ll see. His possible cabinet looks pretty depressing. But i’ll withhold judgment until i see his actions.
