Donald Trump—Who He REALLY Is
by Chuck Yeager
The criticisms of Trump are amazingly missing something. They are lacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him. After all the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity than people may think.
And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that. Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others. But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump’s plan is for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework. But, since most Americans won’t do their own research, here, in no particular order, is an overview of many of Trumps positions and plans:1) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.
2) Speaking of the military, Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.
3) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 8 core principles (which seem to support my comment in the last point):
American interests come first. Always. No apologies.
Maximum firepower and military preparedness.
Only go to war to win.
Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.
Keep the technological sword razor sharp.
See the unseen.
Prepare for threats before they materialize.
Respect and support our present and past warriors.
4) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.5) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U. S., once again creating jobs here.
6) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.
7) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America. He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.8) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to:
Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%
From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%
From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%
$1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%
9) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.
10) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country. Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.
11) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare rolls and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.
12) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.
13) Trump opposes Common Core.
14) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
15) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.
16) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states’ rights issue, not a federal issue.17) Trump supports the death penalty.
Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm. looks like he believes in horse sense!). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point:
“When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy.We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense.” On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.
Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally. He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation.
Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.” We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans.
Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them.
Before we criticize someone because of what the media is saying, maybe we should consider what they have to offer. What are they bringing to the table. Researching their background independently of what the news says. What’s their bio?? What’s Obama’s bio? If you researched him prior to becoming President, would you have hired him to work for you or run your business?

Another weak Christian that misunderstands Sha'ul (Paul) are you now? So you completely dismiss John, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel, Moshe (Moses) even? Revelation takes precedence over Paul's epistles.
Already plan to vote for him, and know his views. But he is tight that many , all too many lazy Americans do not and will vote based on some talking head propagandist.
You definitely provided a different angle on Trump which we should all carefully and thoughtfully consider. Thank you. I'm keeping my powder dry for now, but you've definitely convinced me that Trump may be more credible than meets the eye.
my point is no action short of an organized armed force will improve the situation.
My only exception to your comments above is that the boot around our neck is not a singular person, namely at this time, Barrack Obama. He is a puppet by a much larger and insidious organization referred to as the New Left or old communists. They have entrenched themselves into every part of our society from local politics to all the bureaucracies and institutions. Our culture is sick. If we don't organize to take back our schools, culture, media, or bureaucracies, electing a President is going to do us no good at all. We had what we thought was a good President, George Bush (or perhaps to the more naive and uneducated at the time). He paved the way to make it much easier for Obama. Being part of the NWO family, he has no objection to what Obama is doing. I also am very weary of Ted Cruz when you start to dig into his background, HIS LIES, and his votes on key matters like TPA, Corker bill, and Gang of 8--yes, he was fully behind this with the exception this amnesty bill did not provide enough H1-B visas, telling us it is foreigners who provide the ingenuity and jobs in this country.
White genocide is another problem and we are almost at the point of being the minority. That means, all the influx of people coming into this country from third-world dictatorial countries like China and Mexico do not understand our constitution and the very fabric of a free society. (I had a fb friend tell me the Chinese girlfriend of his said America's problem is that we don't have a dictator like China and if we did, we wouldn't have the problems we do!) They will outnumber us and vote Democrat for the freebies and control. My upper middle-class city I live in is no longer recognizable. I am clearly a distant minority. English is rarely spoken and has been replaced by mostly Middle Easterners and Asians. My city, once strict with their building ordinances and planned community, is now building 5-story apartment buildings on every inch of land. They're filling these apartments with third-worlders who are coming here taking jobs from Americans. These people have superior attitudes. I know, because I've had at least 2 encounters in the last year with Asians that tell me they are smarter than we are and one called me white trash and wanted to hit me (because I suggested they speak English). One young Asian girl told another women in a totally unrelated topic, that Asians are better and smarter Drs. and most of our Dr.s are Asian because they are smarter than we are. No, the problem is, the left-wing has pushed out the white American male long ago from educational institutions giving funding and scholarships to foreigners. My Mother was in Kaiser 2 weeks ago, and the minority staff & Dr ratio to whites was at least 10 to 1. I felt like we were in a third-world hospital.
We have given up on families and children and a religious foundation. Our problem isn't our president, it's our culture and society. Most won't even address this topic, even on the right, because somehow it's prejudice and not PC. Look at Europe and we are right there with them. It's been a slow drip since Kennedy enacted his 1965 immigration plan to replace us with the third-world inhabitants without vetting or assimilation and purposely changed the ratio of immigrants from white European to anything brown. It's the white people that are being eliminated via population growth of Muslims, and south Americans and an invasion by the Chinese. And if you don't think there is racism among these groups, then you haven't talked to any of them. They are not afraid of PC--they have a very strong survival instinct. We have none.
I will receive a lot of vitriol for my comments above, so please don't bother. Either give my comments above careful thought and consideration and take a look around you what is going on, or keep your insults to yourself. Until one is willing to face the real danger, nothing will change. You can get into the weeds and obsess over Trump's personality and you can chose another totally ineffectual candidate who is bought by the donor class--and absolutely nothing will change--nothing at all. Except your whining (not to whom I'm responding to, but anyone reading this who takes exception with the content.
You must start asking yourself what it is God wants you to do. Does he want your survival as a race? Or does he want you to go into the ash heap of all prior civilizations?
Robyn, so much truth in what you say above, it is obvious you have done your homework.
Only thing I would disagree with is when you say, " Our problem isn't our president, it's our culture and society."
A president can play a big part in our culture and society. It is the bully pulpit. Just like Obama has created more racism and divide due to his actions with police and black issues. He doesn't even challenge the blacks to stop killing one another, and rebuke many black men for hitting up on women and having children spread among several women and not supporting them etc. etc.
So anyway a President can make a big difference in culture and society, as Obama has. Of course others can a well.
Cruz is a concern not only on whether he can legally be president, but his wife works for Goldman Sachs and does work for the Trilateral Commission, a New World order think tank.
I want to leave yall another good video, please watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM8TGZgn0qw&feature=youtu.be
I think you're on target Robyn.........except I'm not knowledgeable of the "1965 Kennedy immigration plan"......
