Why does a multibillionaire who has his own plane, plenty of money, is 70 years old spend let’s say $15 million of his own money for a job that pays $400,000 per year?
Why? Does not make sense at all. Is he really spending his own money? Let’s say he is. As a businessman why would you spend $15 million (and he has not even got to the general election part which will cost even more) for a return of $3.2 Million over 8 years. (POTUS makes $400,000 per year x 8 years) Does not make good business sense and most investors in such a proposal would not invest.
He is 70 – what does he gain from all of this? Why when you have a life such as his do you do something like this at 70 yrs of age? Does not add up. He does not need the money, the fame or the power.
So lets look at another part. He and others say he is not being bought by special interest. He is not for sale. OK but let’s consider this. Is this true or not? Let us say he is not being bought. But over the past 10 or even 20 years Trump has bought a lot of politicians. He has said so himself. He in his own words has said I donate and they do me favors. He has donated to Democrats, Republicans, Elected officials for years. They do not “own” him but they “owe” him. Instead of special interest buying him, it is the other way around. He has bought them.
So what!!! The so what is when he gets into office – he will call in all of his chips as he needs them. He will not be the one owing favors to those who gave to his campaign. He will in turn be calling on all those he has donated to and when he as the POTUS needs you to step up to the plate and pay the piper, they will come to his beckoning call. I think this is much worse. Did any of you think of this? He will have so many eating out of his hand. He already has.
Trump does not give a damn about you. He does not need to, America or anyone. He has made his fortune. He has created his empire. So what it the end game? What is the plan?
I and my wife have discussed this so many times. We both tend to wonder if he ever went in to win in the first place. I mean no one does or says what he does and would ever in the past expect to win. But he is winning. He has given no specifics other than ramblings that most all will not work, many are not legal and no way they will ever pass through our system. But so many have jumped on the Trump Train. I think he entered the race to shake things up, then to drop out (lose) and then go back to being Trump. Or did he enter to help the Democrats and Clinton win? I thought for awhile Trump and Cruz were working together because they seems to be getting along so well. Guess I was wrong there and maybe I am wrong on this.
The only person who knows for sure is Trump. We heard that one the election is over in the state he seems to be firing all of his staff once he leaves a state. Does he not know he has to gear up for a national fight against Clinton or Sanders? He is firing staff and not training new members. Something is amiss.
I will close for now and see what you think.
