In less than one year, voters will await to see if their chosen presidential candidate will take the presidency. Among the ever- growing candidates for president, Donald Trump is the one to gain a great deal of media attention, due to many of the things he says to voters and to the general public.
Unlike many of the other presidential candidates, Trump does not have any previous political experience. Considering most Republican candidates have a track record in politics, the fact that someone who is not a politician just might be a good thing for our country. Interesting enough, a retweet by Trump stated that he is self-funding his campaign, which is different from other candidates such as Ted Cruz.
Trump brings a plethora of business experience, which is sure to revitalize our ever crumbling economy. Compared to the other Republican candidates, Trump was quoted in a Washington Times article stating, “As far as the salary is concerned, I won’t take even one dollar.”
A Businessweek.com article states the salary of President of the United States is $400,000. Should Trump get elected, our country would automatically save $400,000 in just one year.
It is also essential to mention the amount of stellar professional people Trump can use to build a strong cabinet and ensure our government is keeping up with efficient business practices.
In many of his public appearances, Trump is not afraid to talk about successful people he knows. In reality, we should bring those successful people to Washington, D.C and let them make our government successful.
However, it is not just that Trump has no political past that makes him stand out as a vibrant candidate. Trump’s persona and demeanor shed light on the rise of political correctness that is sweeping across our country. Instead of sugarcoating the issues that our country faces, Trump speaks his mind, often offending audiences by the masses.
While many people tend to become easily offended by the information that comes out of his mouth, Trump is entitled to execute his freedom of speech, a right that not one should infringe upon, no matter how ridiculous a statement he makes.
We must realize that running for political office should not be a job, but rather a passion. Looking at candidates such as Senator Bernie Sanders and Governor Chris Christie, they are among the many career politicians. On the other side is Donald J. Trump, a wealthy businessman striving for a positive direction for our country.
Instead of being easily influenced by the media commentators, it is beneficial to look at an attempt to understand the candidates’ positions and views on issues. With Trump, you don’t see a flip-flop candidate; you see a candidate that has presented issues and stances and has refused to change his position.
If you take a close look at our present form of government, it is in dire need of a major change. A change that can only be efficiently executed by one presidential candidate, and that candidate is Trump.
In the words of Trump, “Make America Great Again.”
