Donald Trump’s announcement: I doubt if Donald Trump will get the Republican party’s nomination. He does stand a fighting chance of winning the presidency as a third party candidate. Establishment Republicans choose their nominee, but they cannot win the general election without conservatives. Trump can draw voters from both major parties if he comes down to a third party bid. Sad to say, Trump will go to the White House with no muscle in Congress. Admittedly, there are a few true conservatives in Congress, but not nearly enough for his announced intentions to take root. Most of those people in Congress are the very people who put this country where it is at today —— unlimited illegal immigration to name one, the ACA for another. They are congressional snakes who shed their skin many times a year but they remain snakes. Third parties NOTE: Ross Perot gave the presidency to Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the country is still paying for Hillary. Every third party candidate either made the mistake of thinking they could bring about change on their own, or else they were deliberately bull-shitting the troops. Most voters already know what Trump will do. A few commercials and town hall meetings will quickly inform those who are not familiar with his views; so he has to concentrate on congressional muscle. That’s why I would be delirious with joy if Trump put a lot of effort into winning congressional seats for people who are onboard with his vision. If the same bunch of snakes returns 2017 it is all over no matter who lives in the White House. Finally, this address does scare me: 845 United Nations Plaza, the home of Trump World Tower. I have not heard Trump say what he thinks about US membership in the UN. I would hate to hear him say “The UN needs to be reformed.” I would like to hear Trump say he would take the US out of the UN.
