Trump has changed into a World Leader

Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed that POTUS Has changed how he is handling the press etc? His communication if far less typical Trumpesque he is appearing each time more like a US president. Under huge internal pressure and foreign policy madness he is handling his ego and persona like a true leader. IMO???

Sir I believe that you have placed the above statements in the wrong thread?

They should be in the 'funny jokes' section I assume?       /sarc

Also sir, even assuming you are correct, may I suggest that a person should 'appear like a President' or 'change into a world leader' from day one, rather than take three years to do so? 

I would assume from your wording that anyone who reacts to it with an upvote will agree that he has not acted as such until now.

This is oil price.  They praise him for "not being a politician" and then when he acts like a politician they will praise him for not being a child.  

He can do no wrong, even when he conflicts with himself or fails to deliver.

Now I know why Trudeau, Johnson, Macron and Rutte were mocking him at recent NATO summit.

They were just jealous how presidential Trump became.

Johnson is the only one I would say is acting Presidential. The others are just acting like the elitists they are. Johnson is getting the job done, that is presidential to me. Otherwise I would say Boris is a loved buffoon by his supporters. He is that to me, but also compromises too much, but that is what helped him get elected.

Trump:

- Doesn't act like a politician.  Good.

- Acts like a politician. Good. ???

- Commits crimes. Good.

- Has his crimes investigated. Bad.

- Has others investigated illegally. Good.

/ edit      Watching the livestream of Trump speaking at World Economic Forum at Davos.  An interesting random statistic  ... for every one new regulation imposed by the federal government, Trump required that eight old regulations must be removed.  Massive cutting of red tape.  It started out as two old regulations must be removed for every new regulation, and the ante has been upped to eight, currently.

/edit 2    Trump's speech was great.  MSM will be howling with fury, especially with Trump's gentle poke at panic mongers such as Greta.  Will MSM ignore Trump's TRILLION TREES initiative?

And just for fun ...

A damned good idea! If you study the US CFR’s (Code of Federal Regulations) you can easily see that many are outdated or irrelevant in today’s business environment YET businesses must adhere to each and every one. An expensive, additional cost to doing business.

I know your response was not intended for me. But my answer would be that I don’t endorse any politician today. I typically find myself voting against one of the candidates. For the last 30 years or so that usually has me voting against the Dims.

I am currently unable to dream up a scenario where I would cast a vote for a democrat. So that basically means any alternative conservative candidate will get my vote. I seriously doubt if I am the only person in the USA that has this view of the current political system.

What is strange is that up to my generation my family always voted Democrat. But the current Democratic Party is not the same party it was when my father was alive and voting.

I agree Trump pragmatic approach due to not being professional politician but businessman by background is positive feature, fresh air in US politics.

But unemployment rate is not a good indicator of state of economy in US, this is easily manipulated.

Good one is employment rate in 2018 60,4% better than under Obama, but still below 62.2% 2008 pre crisis level.

Couldn't agree more

2016 I was for Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina or Ben Carson.  I wanted a business oriented candidate not a politician.  

Sanders, Warren, Hillary, Biden - IMO these people know nothing!

The notion that Trump isn't a world leader is lunacy. Whether he is a world leader liked and/or respected, that is debatable.

The employment rate mime is kind of misleading. Mostly it is what was inherited. Reagan and Obama show horrible, but it's really the turd left from Carter/Bush43. Trump inherited an ongoing expansion, and deserves some credit by keeping it going, but it's Keynesian in nature, adding unsustainable monies into the system. Then again, few care about fiscal responsibility anymore so let's stay at the craps table and let it ride.

The Republican party did allow itself for a seismic shift with Trump per the drive of their constituents. The Democrats are lost a sea. They have the anyone but Trump vote, but that is a poor platform. You'd think Trump would have galvanized them, but nope, they still herd like cats that hate each other. On his forum you'd think they are almost communists or traditional socialist, but AOC isn't going anywhere, and really only Sanders is a socialist. The rest are probably slightly right of an Eisenhower platform, a legacy of Clinton, who talked liberal on social issues, but he wasn't liberal in any traditional sense of the word.

The democrats are completely out of touch with their own constituents, and paying the price. 

Truth is, we are a one party system in some respects. Truly Red areas and Blue states, all that matters is the nominations, where a small percentage, typically not centralists, determine the who. It's a messy system, barely works, but as was mentioned recently, what works better?

try to study the democrazies of Scandinavia... It takes a lot longer to get stuff done here, but the confidence in government is much higher.

Many Millions of baby boomers have retired since then. They've permanently left the employment rate for the green green pastures of golfing and leisure. These demographics are a surprise to no one. Generation X, Y plus Millennials don't add up to the Boomers.

My mistake.  I was listening to the livestream on my laptop while making breakfast and having early morning coffee.  I didn't hear all the details.
