On October 10th 2017 I produced an e-book titled “Donald J Trump – bad, mad or good?”, which was one of twelve I produced around that time on a range of subjects that struck me as being worth writing about.
Given I was and still am a prolific blogger it was a way of bringing together related significant blog posting in an easily manageable way. On my last update I managed to screw up the edit and it seemed to be a good time to bring together what I had written up to then and add to it, with the view to incorporating new blog postings, from time to time. It is appropriate to do so now as he is supposedly about to step down as President.
Here I bring together my main blog postings concerning Donald J Trump, who fascinates me and whatever you think about him, is often in the centre of something significant. These blog postings cover the time he first came to my attention, around the beginning of 2016, although I was aware of him long before that, and this was due to his having put his hat in the ring as an unlikely potential US Presidential contender, until the present day, having achieved that particular goal and having had to face the daunting task of leading a great nation and arguably the free world, with many obstacles and opposers, yet notwithstanding is doing a lot what he said he would.
A great deal of water has flowed under the bridge since becoming President and whatever happens next there is little doubt more is still to come, whether or not he has a second term, which is now humanly speaking unlikely. Arguably Trump has triggered a global revolution that will continue. During this period, I have gone from seeing Trump as more bad or mad than good and, unlike many who I rub shoulders with, especially on social media, to being more good than bad or mad. This to significant extent is because he is closest when it comes to sharing my worldview and I believe him to be a catalyst and instrument to dealing with high level corruption. My eyes have been gradually opened to things I hadn’t been aware of before and still I realize how little I really know, but at least I now see the possibilities. I should add, I am not a cult like follower of Trump. The one I try to follow is the living God.
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 Zacchaeus and restores fourfold to all who he has cheated, I will always be wary, although I see signs of God breaking him and using him even more. I do feel he does not get a fair press and making correctives like this is of particular value and, despite being 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 who can be rightly described using many, wide ranging adjectives, although I suspect the ones people use will depend on how they see him, and people do see him so very differently.
Regarding the content of this e-book, this is mainly to be found following the links that follow. It is not so much about arguing whether Trump is bad, mad or good but more to do with checking up on 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, one should bear in mind that my interest is less in Trump the man but rather the implications of his actions etc. And 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 someone to stick up and fight on behalf of his country and tackle the evil of globalism and draining the swamp, which from where I sit, and despite many obvious faults, and many more detractors, he appears to be doing rather well.
This book is updated from time to time to include new postings on my blog. Right now we have reached an important milestone – Trump about to step down as POTUS, claiming he had been cheated – but will he? You never know with Trump and the saga continues!
