Donald Trump: the name either makes you cringe, laugh, or make you feel short of words. But you can’t ignore the fact that he has become the 45th POTUS. And there’s one more aspect about Trump that you can’t deny: the man got guts. His audacity knows no bounds, and his vision and speeches are, err, we’ll talk about them later on.
But first, let’s talk about something we believe in, everybody has three sides, the good, the bad and the ugly. And Trump is not an exception to this belief, and why should anyone be? We are all but human, and we do have different sides to us.
Let’s talk about the Good side of Trump, our 45th President (Oh God… Moment right):
These are the excerpts from his most famous book, The Art of the Deal, originally published in 1987: “I don’t do it for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks.”
His belief that any publicity is good publicity and being center of attention is good for business, whether it’s good attention or bad, doesn’t matter, can’t be denied. Notoriety has always been his friend, and that’s evident from his success at the electoral campaigns.
As the man himself once said, “What you do is important, but what’s more important is for to keep doing something.”
Speaking of the bad, let’s talk about the campaign. When his claims of grabbing women by their genitals got out, his campaign suddenly took an ugly turn. And then his remarks about an actress Arianne Zucker, “I’ve gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.” also raised a lot of eyebrows.
And when he was asked about his opinion about anything, all he had to say was, “I have the right words for this, and the words are huge”. Too bad we never got to know what those words were. The way he and Hillary were debating, it sounded more like kindergarten chatter rather than two reasonable and mature people talking and discussing a solution to a problem. We got to see a better discussion then these two between Tomi Lahren and Trevor Noah on The Daily Show.
And then something really ugly truth: Trump won the elections. And here we are, wondering what to do now? His supporters are ecstatic while others are perplexed. But don’t you think it’s the people of the nation that define its course? Do the math and see where you stand as a citizen. Don’t whine, do something!
