When Donald Trump was asked if he would accept the election results if he lost, he said, “I’ll keep you in suspense.”
He didn’t lose, and now he is playing the media with the same kind of coy comments when it comes to staffing his new administration. He tweeted amid the chaos, “Very organized process taking place as I decide on Cabinet and many other positions. I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!”
During the campaign, Trump supporters had a remarkable front row seat to see him eyes wide open, rather than the usual empty promises. As Trump backer Peter Thiel put it, “The media is always taking Trump literally. It never takes him seriously, but it always takes him literally. I think a lot of the voters who vote for Trump take Trump seriously, but not literally.”
Ivanka Runs The Empire
While Donald Trump runs America, his daughter, Ivanka, will help head up his business empire, along with her brothers, Donald, Jr., and Eric, all co-executive vice-presidents. Every savvy entrepreneur values the wisdom of trusted people who can cover one area when they need to concentrate on another. We definitely want America’s top leader focused on national priorities–knowing he can leave The Trump Organization safely in the hands of his capable children.
Does Prosecuting Clinton Still Make Sense?
Mr. Trump told The New York Times that he considered prosecuting Hillary, but he didn’t want to “hurt the Clintons”. So for supporters who hoped Secretary of State Clinton would finally meet justice, they may be disappointed, as our President-elect pursues issues of more immediate urgency. But great leaders must make tactical decisions based on strategic motives.
Many still protest Trump’s presidential win, but as much as we can tell, though he’s playing with the media, he’s following a precise plan. One that promises to fulfill his mission to make America Great Again.
Are you impressed or frustrated by Trump’s transition process?
