Donald J. Trump: The Invincible President

Three weeks after New York City real estate tycoon Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy for President of the United States, I published an article on Facebook which predicted he would win the race. During the Republican primaries, I watched Trump mow down 15 challengers in the race like they were paper mannequins.
In November 2016, Trump came from behind to win a stunning Electoral College victory over formidable Democratic Party presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
After Trump assumed office in January 2017, top Obama-era Department of Justice (DOJ) officials launched a so-called "independent" criminal probe of the Trump Campaign's interaction with Russian officials. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein teamed with FBI Director James Comey, and Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller in an attempted coup d'etat, which was thwarted through the sheer strength of Trump's willingness to defeat lawlessness within the federal criminal justice system.
Trump's hand-picked Attorney General, former U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), deserted him on the battlefield while Trump and his children were under a barrage of fire from a cabal of renegade DOJ officials who tried to overthrow his newly installed government.
Trump is the first and only president in U.S. history to publicly label FBI agents as "scum," characterize the DOJ as "corrupt," and portray the federal criminal justice system as "rigged." No president before Trump had the courage to define the federal criminal justice system for what it is -- corrupt and rigged to the core.
Trump single-handedly de-balled Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller, and Sessions. He fought these coup d’état co-conspirators and won.
Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who survived an attempted coup d’état several years ago, rounded up all of the leaders of that coup, charged them with the appropriate crimes, prosecuted them to the fullest extent of the law, and imprisoned them. Trump has not yet punished the coup d’état leaders in his case.
When the DOJ's attempted coup d’état failed, the Democratic controlled House of Representatives launched an impeachment inquiry that resulted in the December 2019 impeachment of President Trump on charges that he abused the powers of his office and obstructed a Congressional investigation. On Wednesday, the Republican controlled Senate is expected to acquit Trump on both charges.
In November 2020, a Democratic presidential nominee will try to block Trump's re-election. Barring divine intervention, Donald Trump will win re-election by a landslide margin in the popular vote and Electoral College.
Here are a few of the reasons why: The U.S. economy is booming. The stock markets are at an all-time high. Unemployment is at an all-time low. Trump has not started any new wars. Trump has used his experience as a successful international businessman to renegotiate trade deals with China and Mexico on terms that are more favorable to America. Trump also signed the First Step Act in December 2018, which is the most significant criminal justice reform legislation in decades.
Whether we agree with Donald Trump's policies, or not, no one can deny his unconquerable spirit and his highly skilled ability to fight and win the toughest battles in life.
American voters have never experienced this kind of president in the modern political era. A majority of voters love him for his strength as a fighter. They realize that Trump has a plethora of character flaws, but they are attracted to his unconquerable fighting spirit.
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are a boring collection of irrelevant politicians. They are weak and timid warriors. Only a political gladiator with considerable fighting skills can defeat Trump. No Democratic candidate in the race has these skills. Remember, in political warfare, the most committed adversary will win.
As for me, I have been a declared political independent since 2001. Over the decades, I have supported Democrats, Republicans, and Independents who have run for various federal, state, and local political offices. I have contributed large sums of money to these candidates, and never took a dime from them for any purpose.
Finally, I am a capitalist who focuses on economic growth and participatory democracy. I am not a "slave or indentured servant" on anybody's political party plantation, and I like it that way. I make my own political friends and enemies. I do not outsource this prerogative to anyone, ever.
This commentary is NOT an endorsement of President Trump. Instead, it is an explanation of why Trump is politically invincible at this juncture.
