This from White House Dossier
Two weeks ago, I wrote a post describing how much I like a book by Donald Trump, “Think Big.” It helped motivate me as I began this blog. I said at the end of the piece that what I was writing was not meant as an endorsement yet -that I hadn’t thought about it much. Well, I thought about it.
Donald Trump, at least as a politician, is a fraud and demagogue. Whatever you think of his straight talking style and his willingness to go after President Obama, he is a power-hungry Sophist and a danger to the country.
As is typical with demagogues, he says the answer to the country’s problems is – him. He has no serious program, no agenda, no new ideas other than to obtain power and support for himself. The few ideas he does throw around – a 25 percent tax on Chinese imports and knocking OPEC into line merely through the force of his personality – have a xenophobic cast in that they blame our problems on foreigners.
I published an article today in POLITICO detailing Trump’s empty, demagogic campaign. I hope you take a look.
