During the next debate, Trump can sit on the fastball, make Hillary throw a strike, then hit it out of the park. Here's a preview....
Clinton: Mr. Trump, you avoided paying your fair share of taxes and therefore don't support government funded military needs, infrastructure, schools and social services.
Trump: Are you suggesting that any American that plays by the rules of the IRS and takes a legal tax deduction is not a patriot? Is that what you are saying? Be careful, because that attitude insults even more Americans than those you have already characterized as 'deplorable.'
I would argue that any citizen who doesn't take advantage of the rules about paying your taxes is not someone who could handle the demands of running the largest business in the world, the United States of America.
Clinton: Mr. Trump doesn't have the temperament to have his finger on the trigger of our nuclear instruments of mass destruction.
Trump: In our history, the Democrats have made that same argument about every Republican candidate. Whether it was George Bush, Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater or Richard Nixon. With Bush, Reagan, and Nixon we discovered that that claim was untrue. In fact, right after 911, polls showed that over 90% of Americans felt President Bush had handled the attack with calm assurance and strong leadership.
Now Democrats, trying to rewrite history, use terms like 'Cowboy' to disparage former President Bush. I would argue that during Bush's two terms, after 911, we suffered zero attacks on our homeland. Under the current Democratic regime, and much of that under the poor leadership of Mrs. Clinton and her heir apparent Secretary of State John Kerry's foreign policy, there have been no less than one attack per month!
Clinton: How can a man who disparages women, who calls Mexicans rapists, and who praises the leadership abilities of Vladimir Putin be put in charge of the world's most powerful nation? Any one who can't tell the difference between dictatorship and leadership should never become our president.
Trump: A candidate who allows their supporters to misrepresent their opponent, to manipulate quotes and to mangle the facts is too weak of character to stand strong against the world's bullies. I would refer to the total capitulation on the Iran Nuclear Agreement that you supported. The Iranian regime bullied you and Secretary Kerry into submission, getting everything they wanted.
As for my temperament, I stand on the example of the character of my family, my business success and the thousands of my company's employees representing a broad range of gender, races and religions that I have supported for nearly fifty years. They know who I am, and you don't see any of them lining up to denounce me.
I have been a public figure my whole life. I have worked with Republicans and Democrats, with blacks and hispanics, with Muslims and Jews for decades. Nobody characterized me as a racist or bigot until I became the leader of a movement that threatens to disrupt the bureaucratic aristocracy of the Washington establishment.
Clinton: You have no solutions. All you do is state platitudes about being 'Great Again' and 'Winning.' But there is no 'there' there. How can people trust you to actually do what you say you will do?
Trump: I set the bar very high. I don't say I will make America good again. I say 'Great Again'. I will put the right people in the right positions to excel. I will put our citizens, our American brothers and sisters, and our nation's interests first.
When I go into a negotiation to acquire the rights to build a new project, I don't tell my competition all the specifics of just how we will meet the challenge. I believe America's leaders need to do a better job of protecting our assets, our strategies and how we intend to accomplish our goals.
In the political world talk is cheap. In the business world performance is all that matters. In my world, results are the measurement of success. I have a strong record of exceeding expectations, of adding great value, and building long term coalitions throughout the world. I will lead by example, I will build coalitions, and we will do a much better job of protecting our nation's assets and values.
Mrs. Clinton has, on the other hand, had zero experience in hiring people, other than lawyers of course. She has never had to submit a balance sheet, or to manage the construction of incredibly complex buildings in foreign countries, where the rules and regulations and the challenges of dealing with conflicting cultures can quickly shut you down. She has no history of coming in under budget, because all she has ever done is spend taxpayers money. Her effort to redesign our healthcare system was a total disaster.
So when I hear her surrogates say she is the most prepared person to ever run for President, I am insulted. I am offended by the dismissal of the track records of hundreds of former candidates of both parties.
But enough of that. My point is that unless you have been living under a rock for the past fifty years, it is obvious that I am imminently qualified to run the biggest and most complex business in the world, the United States of America. And I promise you, I will make America Great Again!
