Donald Trump is effective and democratic deal maker

Print Article

Either you want to look good, or you want to make the deal! Businessman Donald Trump always wants to make the deal.

Calling the Korean dictator, “Rocket Man” at the United Nations in front of hundreds of diplomats from all around the world may have been absurd, but it was the funniest and sharpest humiliation of that dictator in years. It was also a slap in the face of a little boy, whose henchmen immediately marched out of the UN.

Mind you, over 100 nations previously censored North Korea only days before with no such effect. But Donald Trump calls their leader “Rocketman,” and they become infuriated and can no longer remain sitting. It was another Trumpism which will go down in history, alongside telling Mexicans, “We will build a thousand mile wall and make Mexico pay for it!” That doesn’t make sense, either, but it doesn’t matter. It’s straight from New York City, where everybody is leveled in that weird, rude, vernacular of a peculiar people that live in the hub of the world’s business center. Beneath his insult is a form of leveling that bridges the gap of the “Queen’s English,” which allows puppets and politicians who prefer to look good, to rob, kill, wage war, and disparage the ordinary person as “deplorable” with the arrogance of royalty. They are the very ones who need to be stopped.

Donald Trump is effective and democratic. The bottom line for him is the dollar bill. The speech he delivered at the UN simply repeated Harry Truman’s old axiom, “The buck stops here!”
