Whether you love him or hate him there is no doubt Trump has changed American politics. He is the candidate of choice for everyone who is sick and tired of establishment pundits. Some say his lack of political experience is his best feature and others think he is unproven. Click Start Slideshow below to see the top reasons Trump supporters think he will be the best American President.
He Represents The American Dream.
Yes, his dad loaned him $1 million to start his empire, but Donald Trump’s hustle and determination is what built his over $9 billion net worth. Mr. Trump is a 3rd generation American, grandson of a German immigrant in the early 1800’s. Trump was one of 5 children born in 1946 in Queens, New York. And from these humble beginnings, earned his incredible success. He is the American Dream incarnate.

He is not “Bought and Paid For.”
Trump is not owned by Big Banks, Wall Street, Mega Corporations or other super PACs. In fact, he told a few Super PACs that had already raised money for him (without his consent) to send it back where it came from.
It’s time for a President that is not beholden to anyone for support and can on the basis of their judgement, experience, and skill set do what is best for the country. But that’s not the only reason Trump will make the Greatest American President. Click “Next” for more
He is Not Your Typical Politician. (And That’s a Good Thing).
Yes, he has a comb-over. Yes, he doesn’t act like the career politician, and its true that he hasn’t spent years in Washington. But that is actually a good thing. Its more clear than ever that America is done with the career politician, and the two
That is exactly why Bernie Sanders saw so much success in his campaign and why Ron Paul, a Libertarian was able to make waves in the 2012 Republican Primaries.
With good reason, people trust government less than ever before and that is a trend that has been growing over the last 50 years.
He Will Bring Jobs BACK to the USA.
Trump has been very outspoken about his plan to bring jobs back to Americans by negotiating better deals with China and Mexico, in particular. With respect to China, he really grasps the currency and trade issues.
Trump said “The number-one way that countries are killing us is with devaluations of their currencies, and our companies can’t compete. You take a look at what’s happening in Japan with the devaluation of the yen, just look at this. Caterpillar is having such a hard time competing with Komatsu, which is a big tractor-maker from Japan[.]”
The next reason Trump will make America’s greatest President is a little counter intuitive at first…
He Offends People.
The world has gotten so Politically Correct that the truth, and the freedom to speak that truth is subservient to the most sensitive feelings of every delicate person in society. The result is people often compete to be the biggest victim and blame someone else for their situation.
People are sick of having to treat the self-made “victims” with kit gloves. Trump gives them permission to remove the gloves, and hold people personally responsible for their life choices.
He LOVES America.
Trump is opening up the discussion about what it means to be “unapologetically American.” He has the courage and gusto to stand up for our nation and not to pander to international politics.
For example, he has said it is too risky to take in Syrian Refugees. While this is not P.C. – it does protect American lives. And that is what being President is really about. It is not an international popularity contest.
He Has Guts and Doesn’t Back Down.
A President needs to make sure that he can back up any threats he makes. His adversaries need to know that his promises have teeth, and if they mess with him, they will lose.
Trump has demonstrated this on more than one occasion, but most recently, in the feud with Fox News’ that if you cross him, he will make good on this threats, and he will win.
In case you missed it, Trump was not pleased with a taunting statement made by Fox News prior to a debate so he did not attend. Trumps strategy was successful. The night marked the second lowest rated GOP debate of the season. Trump was the most-talked-about candidate without even being there. And he held a rival event where he raised $5.6 million for charity.
He made a threat. He followed through. And he won. Everyone else would have backed down. Trump didn’t. That is presidential.
He Will Get Rid of Frivolous Government Agencies.
Under President Trump, the Private Sector will have the opportunity to step up and succeed where bureaucratic agencies have failed.
It is precisely because education and the environment are so important to our future that Trump has publicly stated he will de-fund agencies like the EPA and the Federal Department Education – which have proven to be much worse than just a huge waste of money. They actually hurt the causes they claim to promote.
Trumps proven entrepreneurial skill can see how freedom will work better than coercion in these industries. Something career politicians will never figure out.
He Will Take On the Mainstream Media, and Maybe Even Bring Back Some Honest Journalism.
Trump stands to take down the current corporate Mainstream Media (“MSM”) by beating them at their own game. Every single time the MSM thinks that Donald Trump has finally gone and said something that will make everyone hate him, they fall right into his trap, by blowing it up!
Here’s how it goes down: Trump concocts the perfectly outrageous, but defensible, statement. And when the MSM gets a hold of it, and blasts it across every “news source” they have available, it just gets more people talking about “What Trump said.” And then he is able to defend it.
Trump is like Ronald Reagan
Like Reagan, Americans know Him from TV, and they are interested in what he can do for America. In his hit TV series The Apprentice, Americans got to know Trump as the powerful and decisive business man who was synonymous with success.
When the press lie about Trump’s positions the lies do not stick because the public know him so well. This is the main reason why a political outsider has been permitted to get so far in this campaign.
This view of Trump that was established before he began his campaign will help him take the White House, and is the reason many Americans will back him. Like Reagan, Trump is a DC outsider, was (at first) dismissed as a serious candidate and attacked by the establishment. Perhaps, also like Reagan, Trump will Make America Great Again.
His International Business Acumen is Proven by His Overseas Business Ventures.
A criticism often thrown at Trump is that he lacks diplomacy. Anyone who questions Trump’s ability to get along with other world dignitaries need only look to his business ventures. It is no secret that Trump has hotels, buildings, and multi-million dollar businesses across the world (including the Middle East).
Growing these successful businesses takes the utmost savvy in operating with local, state, and federal authorities in whichever country the business operates.
The list of countries is too exhaustive to include here, but some countries where he successfully operates include: Mexico, Canada, Mumbai, Philippines, Dubai, Turkey, Panama… the list goes on and on. In this “real world” international arena, Trump has proven his success.
Corporations Will Come BACK to US Soil.
Trump is correct in supporting a 15% corporate tax. Ireland is a prime example of this strategy pulling thousands of companies to their small country. Trump knows how to get these organizations (and the jobs they bring) back to US Soil. He also wrote the best selling book “The Art of the Deal.”
He Knows How to Negotiate.
Trump knows how to negotiate and win. This is supported by the fact that Trump has successful ventures across the globe, and literally wrote the book on negotiation: The Art of the Deal.
Just think of how many deals have to be negotiated to build one skyscraper. Think of the purchase of the land, getting a permit, agreeing on a deal with a builder, the thousands of employees needed to build it, negotiating with the tenants, etc. Now multiply that by the hundreds of gigantic real estate deals Trump has executed.
He Knows When To Be Quiet
While most candidates are on stage saying exactly what they will do to combat ISIS, Trump knows one of the golden rules of negotiation: information is power. He has said that he will get new generals who do not run their mouths about how we are defending our nation, and his plans to defeat ISIS will remain secret.
He is “Jay” From Modern Family.
Trump may even be likened to “Jay” of Modern Family – previously married to a blonde, had three great children who are now adults, and remarried to a beautiful immigrant and had a baby later in life. Is Donald Trump Jay from Modern Family?
He Has the Right Connections to Get Things Done: FASTER and CHEAPER.
Trump is well connected, without being anyone’s errand boy. And it is these connections which will help him actually get things done effectively in Washington when he is president. In one of his campaign speeches, he told the story about an ice rink in New York’s Central Park. Here is the story from Wikipdedia:
The rink was closed in 1980 for an announced 2 1/2 years of renovations. When the problem-plagued work was not completed by the city by 1986 after six years and $13 million, Donald Trump persuaded Mayor Ed Koch to let him complete the work in three months in order to have it open by the end of the year.
Koch initially objected to Trump’s proposal when Trump offered to pay for the renovations himself with the stipulation that he be allowed to run the venue and an adjacent restaurant and use the profits to recoup his costs. Public pressure prompted Mayor Koch to reverse his position. The rink reopened to the public on November 13, 1986, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and press conference attended by Koch and Trump, covered by national evening broadcast television news. Total cost of renovations by Trump was $2.25 million.
Connections…Faster, and Cheaper than Government.
He Will Keep America Safe From Threats Like ISIS.
Trumps words speak for themselves here:
I believe that any credible American foreign policy doctrine should be defined by at least seven core principles:
1. American interests come first. Always. No apologies.
2. Maximum firepower and military preparedness.
3. Only go to war to win.
4. Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.
5. Keep the technological sword razor sharp.
6. See the unseen. Prepare for threats before they materialize.
7. Respect and support our present and past warriors….
Which brings us to the next reason Trump will make the Greatest American President.
He Will Protect The 2nd Amendment.
Trump owns guns and has a permit to conceal carry. Trump is somewhat private about his gun ownership, however, he has publicly admitted to having a Conceal Carry License and in one interview told a reporter that he owns a H&K .45 and a .38 Smith & Wesson. We need a President who is willing to take a strong stance to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights.
He Understands WHY Mass Shootings Are On The Rise. And how to stop them.
Trump has correctly identified the problem: Mental Health Issues. Almost none of the gunmen who kill people obey gun laws. So it is unreasonable to think that more laws will work. We need to address the mental health issues of young people in America if we want these mass shootings to stop.
He Will Let The States Decide on the Marijuana Issue.
Another way to curb government waste, and stop putting people behind bars for smoking a joint. This decision should NOT be a Federal issue – and Trump plans to study decriminalization, and let the states decide how they want to handle the “pot” issues. He has even said he would legalize drugs and use the tax revenues to help with addiction education. This technique has been proven very successful in Portugal over the last 10 years.
He Will Support Our Troops When They Return Home From War.
Trump has put his money where his mouth is on this front. He is an avid supporter of Veterans. And after the feud with Fox News, that left him sitting out the Republican debate, he did something constructive with his time: He took that star power and raised nearly $6 million in less than an hour. And as President, he has committed to making sure that our Men and Woman are respected and cared for after their Great Service to our nation.
He Thinks Outside of the Box.
Trump is not your run-of-the-mill Republican candidate. It is estimated that his IQ is well over 150 points. He can think for himself and is very good at it. He knows the best way to win, and has said truly profound things like :
Sometimes by losing the battle, you find a new way to win the war.
You have to think anyways, so why not think big?
This is outside-the-box, especially for a political candidate. And its not the last reason he’d make a GREAT US President.
He Will Help Businesses GROW.
Having created tens of thousands of jobs for four decades, Trump knows how to create the perfect environment for jobs growth. Namely by lowering corporate taxes and opposing any more hikes to the minimum wage, which destroys small businesses.
With lots of thriving businesses competing for workers the real wage of workers will get bid up much higher than minimum wage law advocates would ever have hoped.
He Will Secure Our Borders.
Yes, Trump has famously made the promise to “Build a Wall, and have Mexico pay for it.” And the immigration issues in this country are real.
Trump refuses to apologize for putting America, and Americans, first. He will secure our borders, return jobs to our men and women, and be more vigilant on who is allowed to enter America.
He Will Stop America from Becoming (More of) a Socialist State.
At the end of 2012, over 35% of ALL AMERICANS were receiving welfare benefits. As Obamacare has continued unchecked, and candidates like Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist, is gaining ground on Hillary, it’s looking more and more like America is going to turn Red…unless Trump is elected president.
Trump understands the real economic issues that need to change to make America Great… like solving our debt problem.
He Understands the Debt Problem, and Can Help make America Great Again.
Trump understands that the US Dollar is in trouble. And if we keep printing it into oblivion, and engaging in unfair trade deals with countries like China, the US Dollar’s days are limited. This has to do with the incredible amount of debt we have racked up in the last 8 years, and Trump understands that for America to be great again, this MUST STOP.
And he has a tax plan on how to do it.
He’s Got It Right On Taxes.
Best to let him speak for himself on this one. According to Trump:
The more government takes in taxes, the less incentive people have to work. What coal miner or assembly-line worker jumps at the offer of overtime when he knows Uncle Sam is going to take sixty percent or more of his extra pay? . . . Any system that penalizes success and accomplishment is wrong. Any system that discourages work, discourages productivity, discourages economic progress, is wrong.
If, on the other hand, you reduce tax rates and allow people to spend or save more of what they earn, they’ll be more industrious; they’ll have more incentive to work hard, and money they earn will add fuel to the great economic machine that energizes our national progress. The result: more prosperity for all—and more revenue for government.
Most people do not realize that since World War II federal tax revenues have been a very consistent 18% – 20% of GDP. The tax rate has been as high as 90% and as low as 10%. High taxes do not increase federal revenue because they destroy the incentive to work.
He Has Great Self Discipline.
He doesn’t drink alcohol or take any drugs. Trump lost his brother, Freddy Jr. to alcoholism in 1981, and he made a choice well before then to not partake. Although he is not judgmental for those who chose to have a drink. He also eats lunch at his desk every day, and is usually very health conscious about his food choices.
Education Will Improve.
The “Common Core” and mandatory testing and “No child is left behind” has been a disaster for our country. Our children are further behind than ever, and we as a nation spend more per child than any other nation. How can this be? Trump plans to cut common core, and to support entrepreneur and business programs that will bring back competition to education.
He Will Repeal ObamaCare and Replace it with Something Better.
Even hardcore proponents of Obamacare have changed their tune, and now it is universally accepted that it is a very expensive disaster. What is Trumps plan? Let people SAVE and make their own choices with companies competing for their business. It is this kind of personal responsibility that needs to return to the American people.
His Life Philosophy Is Dead-On.
Trump’s life and business principles are worth repeating: Build your reputation as “responsible, professional & loyal” and “Never give up; look at the solution, not the problem.” These are words of a great Leader. And now our number one reason why Trump will make a great president.
