Donald J Trump – bad, mad or good?

Here I bring together my main blog postings concerning Donald J Trump. These relate to the time he first came to my attention, around the beginning of 2016, although I was aware of him long before that, due to his having put his hat in the ring as a potential US Presidential contender, until the present day having achieved that particular goal and faced with the daunting task of leading a great nation and arguably the free world, now faced with many obstacles and opposers, yet notwithstanding is doing what he said during his campaigning at an incredible rate.

A great deal of water has flowed under the bridge since becoming President and whatever happens next there is little doubt a lot more is to come. Arguably Trump has triggered a global revolution that will continue regardless whether he continues as President. During this period, I have gone from seeing Trump as more bad or mad than good and, unlike many I rub shoulders with, especially on social media, to being more good than bad or mad, and this to significant extent because he is closest when it comes to sharing my worldview. My eyes have also been gradually opened to many things despite realizing how little I really know.

While nowadays I am more pro-Trump than anti-Trump, he definitely does not get a free pass when he is wrong, which he often is. It is true I like his respect for religion and religious sensibilities, but until he does a Zaccheus and restores four fold all what he cheated, I will always be wary. I do feel on balance he does not get a fair press making correctives like this of particular value and while he is the man at the top, I suspect there is a lot he has limited control over. I hope for serious Trump watchers this will be a useful addition to the plethora of material that has been written on this person that can be well rightly described by many, widely ranging adjectives, although I suspect the ones people use depends on how they see him, realising people do so differently.

Regarding the content of this e-book, this is mainly to be found following the links that follow. It is not about arguing whether Trump is bad, mad or good but rather checking events that occur around the time I write the individual articles and critically reflecting on how Trump is doing, leaving readers to decide where he lies on the good – mad/bad spectrum. But even then, to bear in mind that my interest is less Trump the man but rather what his actions etc. represent. But as for Trump the man, I for one would not invite him to pastor my church but then it was not a pastor the American people voted for, but rather a gladiator to fight on behalf of his country, which from where I am sitting, he appears to do well.
