Donald Trump soundly defeated his democrat party opponent on Tuesday night as Americans chose the next leader of the greatest nation in the world.
An unconventional campaign, led by a non-political candidate with no big money support, no big data operation, no main party support – just raised the one-finger salute to the elitist globalists that have been ruining America for a generation.
As pundits cease talking about if Trump could win, they can’t seem to put their finger on how he won.
But… it isn’t about how – it’s about why.
Trump spent time in states like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania even though the GOP questioned his strategy. Republicans don’t spend time in blue states talking to working-class people. Then again, neither do democrats.
So WHY did Trump win?
Trump was able to understand a few key things that politicians have missed for decades:
- Working class families don’t need more “free” stuff – free has become too expensive. Obamacare has pulled several hundred dollars per month from middle-class family budgets. While that’s not a lot of money to Obama or Clinton, it is life-changing to the rest of America
- Working class Americans have seen their jobs pushed out of existence or overseas by government over-regulation or executive order
- Globalist, elitist trade deals have pushed manufacturing to other countries and made America uncompetitive
- Americans don’t feel safe anymore. Laws aren’t enforced, borders are unsecured and gang violence is killing young Hispanic and Black men in huge numbers – democrats aren’t doing anything other than pandering
Hillary Clinton was unable to understand .. any of those things.
- Clinton pandered to Black voters by parading Jay-Z and Beyonce while talking about the “hot sauce” in her purse – they saw right through that crap
- Hillary told America that she was going to put coal miners out of business and those hard-working Americans … believed her
- Hillary promised to not only safeguard Obamacare but enhance it and Americans believed her
Some point at the email scandal or Benghazi or whatever – but they are wrong. While those things should be significant when considering a Presidential candidate – moms and dads had bigger issues.
Donald Trump did the bread-and-butter thing better than Democrats.
Is he for real? We won’t know for awhile, but as the first Republican president in almost a century to start his term with a friendly congress, it is well within his reach to accomplish just about anything.
Will Trump do all those things he promised? As a voter, I will hold him to every – single – promise. He said those things to get Americans to vote for him and CDN will measure him against his pledges.
For now, congratulations President-elect Donald J. Trump. Now, get to work.
