Liberals were wrong again Trump’s Temperament is the right stuff to be President
Trump’s temperament – According to three failed presidential candidates, Donald Trump does not have the right temperament to be President of the United States. But one must ask: Did Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham, or Mitt Romney have the right temperament to survive and succeed in their presidential campaigns? Their election results speak for themselves.
Even the so-called experts – the TV political pundits and commentators – consistently claim that Trump does not have the right temperament to be president. Yet, the most glaring issue with this popular meme is that many of the pundits don’t know the difference between temperament – which we’re born with – and personality, which is shaped by our social environments.
All one has to do is review the pundits’ commentary and opponents’ Tweets to see that the main criticism of Trump is his personality, not Trump’s temperament
The truth is, much of the criticisms of Trump focuses on his astute ability to zero in and attack his opponent’s weaknesses. It is easier to label Trump a “bully” than to accept the assessments of his competitors. For example, while Jeb Bush took pride in being a “joyful tortoise,” once Trump labeled him as “low-energy,” it was all over for Bush.
Trump’s uncanny ability to take the voters’ pulse resonates with the public because he says what others have thought. And while controversial, Trump has grabbed everyone’s attention by describing the potential solutions in concrete, utilitarian terms: ‘’Build a wall,”- “Ban Muslims from coming to the USA until we know what the hell is going on,” ” Now “Make America great again.’’
In one GOP debate, Senator Ted Cruz refrained from criticizing Trump’s temperament, saying, “I think that is an assessment the voters are going to make.” Cruz was right: The voters were able to see what Trump would bring to the presidency better than anyone else.
Trump’s temperament, stop trying to change him !
So, let’s finally put this criticism of Trump’s temperament to rest: His temperament is exactly what our country needs at this critical time in our history.
The United States of America is poised for the greatest, most necessary, and vital transformation in decades and Trump’s temperament falls into the same category as such history-making former presidents as Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Ronald Reagan.
The Test:: Trump’s temperament
How do I know? Simple. DR. JAN HALPER, PH.D. Mr. Trump, at my request, took the Keirsey Presidential Temperament Evaluation; an unbiased assessment tool used to evaluate the temperament of 41 presidents.
*Trump’s Keirsey Presidential Evaluation revealed that he is a master of the practical; he eschews “social approval” and instead strives to find and implement solutions that work; he’s astutely aware of reality; he prefers concrete tactical solutions to abstract concepts; and he values “doing the right thing in the right way at the right time.” If diplomacy has a tactical purpose, he’ll make it a priority!
Everyone says Donald Trump is crazy, so I decided to test their theory and challenge the assumption that he is made of the wrong temperament. Republicans Overseas in the UK; we have to process the Trump victory; we think he’s being misrepresented.
The political élite, along with the media and their regular pundits, has been so busy picking on words — evaluating Trump according to their own personal standards — that they keep missing what is happening before their eyes. Across the board, no matter the group, they have applied their own elitist standards of how one should behave and how one should speak.
No matter how wrong they have been, it seems they care more about being right than analyzing how our culture has changed and how the voters have spoken. At least CNN’s Quest for Business attempted to attribute the demise of our culture going all the way back to Jerry Springer.
The main criticism of Trump is his personality, not his temperament. Trump’s personality and tone do offend some people; however, after knocking out 16 competitors, perhaps these critics might have been better served to analyze his successes and not judging his behavior.
So, for those who want to understand Trump’s temperament, they would be best served by comparing him to history-making former presidents, such as Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Ronald Reagan.
For each President, it was their temperament that led to their success. Like it or not, the Keirsey Presidential Evaluation reveals that Trump has the same temperament as these arguably successful past presidents. Scrutinizing the temperaments and characteristics of past presidents shows every one of them thrived on action, risks, challenges, and change.
While Franklin Roosevelt was not a long-term strategist, he was a prodigal tactician with a very clever ability to influence people and immediate events with an extraordinary sense of timing. Many political wonks and historians agree that Kennedy and Johnson were powerful politicians who understood the game and played it energetically, shrewdly, and unflinchingly. Both were crafty, hard-working opportunists, able to use any event to accomplish a goal. Clearly the same can be said of Trump.
Fairness never played a role in FDR’s temperament. In the book Eleanor and Franklin, the former First Lady revealed, ‘’The President used those who suited his purposes. He made up his own mind and discarded people when they no longer fulfilled a purpose of his.’’ Even when he had nothing at stake, Franklin often would be devious simply for the pleasure of it.
Kennedy and Johnson could be equally underhanded, unprincipled, scheming, brazen, and downright dirty in the way they played the game of politics. Both JFK and LBJ were accused of being womanizers. FDR used people and cast them aside like paper napkins. JFK acted secretly during the Cuban Missile crisis, as did Reagan in the Iran-Contra affair. Sometimes these presidents were considered impulsive, even reckless. But each man served the United States during a time of complexity, great turmoil, and social upheaval. No president has ever proved to be a saint.
Like Trump, Reagan was accused of being loyal to a fault. Reagan genuinely fretted when he had to reprimand or fire anyone he knew or liked. Trump stood by his campaign manager in the Michelle Fields brouhaha. Calling for Trump to fire Corey Lewandowski can only be deemed as an extremely self-preserving act. Standing by Lewandowski proved the right, loyal, and fair decision.
When Trump declared the primary process was rigged, Cruz, Kasich, and the pundits tagged Trump as a “whiner.” However, rather than picking on words or tone, they would have recognized one of Trump’s strongest characteristics – his desire to ensure fairness in execution and implementation applied equally to all.
Theodore Roosevelt’s interest in fairness, honesty, and support of “the little guy’’ appealed to most Americans. Reagan was, and Trump is an egalitarian. This strong belief in the principle that all people deserve equal rights and opportunity is somehow confusing the Conservative wing of the Republican Party. Reagan’s goal was the same as Trump’s – slice the fat out of the monstrous Washington bureaucracy. But not at the expense of citizens.
Mastering the mediums of the modern world changed how politicians connected with citizens. PR acumen served the political agendas of both Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt. They had a powerful ability to use the press to communicate directly with people. However, Franklin had a new medium – the radio – which took his message directly into the homes of Americans and which he used brilliantly to persuade voters without being edited by the newspapers. JFK did the same, only with television. He used TV to run a cutthroat, negative and cruel TV media campaign successfully exposing Nixon’s weaknesses.
It’s not really a surprise that in 2016 Trump took campaign communications to new heights, employing social media and a fearless use of Twitter to connect directly with potential voters and expose his opponents’ weaknesses. Most pundits agree: Trump rewrote the book on American politics. It will never be the same.
Reagan entered and occupied the Oval Office with a disarmingly simple agenda consisting of three objectives – release the entrepreneur from government bondage, restrict the size and activity of the federal government, and get tough with the “evil empire.’’
Should he win, Trump would enter the Oval Office with four straightforward proposals: put America first and rebuild her strength economically and militarily, use beneficial trade policies putting America first; solve the immigration crisis; and change our tax structure to bring money back to America.
Trump’s temperament will bring us back from the brink of destruction. God willing. amen,,,
Finally, Trump’s most noticeable characteristic is based on his ability to adapt swiftly to changing circumstances and to alter his behavior in the moment in order to operate effectively in the most unstable situations. It’s clear that what some pundits consider Trump’s weaknesses are actually evidence of his deeply ingrained principles: love of country, a desire to impact others in a positive way, a realistic grasp on how the world really works, and a strong mission to get things done.
So, let’s finally put this criticism of Trump’s temperament to rest. His temperament is exactly what our country needs at this critical time in our history.
Most people who don’t like Mr. Trump don’t know him. If you know him you like him. He’s a good man with plenty of common sense and business sense. Who better to help America find it’s way. We will not build the New World Order on the backs of Americans.
