Donald Trump is a moderately successful businessman, but he fills most of his projects with false hope. This article states how over the course of 60 projects Donald Trump thought of and said would be “the very, very best” and would set a “new standard”, but then most of his projects are failures. For example when Trump excitedly told the world about his new travel site “GoTrump.com” he continuously said how amazing it would be, how much better it was than other companies, and how beloved his new travel site would be. The outcome of this project was far below the standards Trump gave us, actually the project never actually started, so he failed before he began. This project was one of approximately 60 other projects (within and unknown timeframe), where one third of the projects were never started, another one third were unsatisfactory and poorly made, and the last third mostly met expectations, but nothing extraordinarily special. In this series of projects only a select few of Trumps ideas actually worked and succeeded. And throughout all of these endeavors Trump always had some sort of legal problem to deal with, like lawsuits and government investigations. And yet, though all this failure, this man is still a runner up for the president of our United States of America. All in all, wether is be a product he is trying to sell, or the idea of him as president, Trump always oversells, and then the product is mostly always unsatisfactory and or a failure.
This connects to some of our former US presidents, who were business men before they were President. Businessmen have historically made bad presidents, for example President Carter, Hover, and George Bush. There is no real reason why businessmen don’t make good presidents, it just seems to be a pattern throughout history, there is not real correlations between the work businessmen do and the work the president dose. Also, many today agree Harry Truman was a great and successful president, who matter of fact failed as a businessman. This does not mean a businessman can’t succeed in the presidency, it just means no one has done it yet.
- What do you think could be a possible outcome for the US and or the World if Trump won the Presidential election? And why?
- If Trump supporters knew about his past failures, do you think they would change their view on Trump, and decide to vote for a different presidential candidate? And why?
- Do you think if Trump is elected his presidency would be similar to those in the past? Why or why not?
