Why Trump could be a great President

(Friday/Saturday/Sunday blog) Now that Trump is in power, the progressive, holier-than-thou libtards and mainstream media will pour contemptuous derision on every action he takes. Meanwhile, George Soros and other anti-democratic, establishment scum will be pouring millions into funding endless protests against Trump’s every move to block the president and give the impression law and order are breaking down.

We’ve already been told thousands of times how Trump can never be a successful president because he’s a businessman and not a politician. So, today I’d like to highlight just three areas where I believe it’s precisely because Trump is a businessman and NOT a politician which could make him a successful president:

1. Choosing the right team

When any politician gets a top job, they immediately start filling government positions with their friends, hangers-on, professional sycophants and people to whom they owe a favour. And, of course, most of those given important jobs are either politicians or political advisers – the majority of whom have never had a proper job in their lives and have never achieved anything apart from brown-nosing their way up the political power structure. Seldom, if ever, are government ministers chosen for their experience or managerial abilities.

This led to disaster for Britain with Blair appointing the economically-illiterate, financially-incontinent historian and deluded idiot Gordon Brown as chancellor. As I’ve detailed in my book, SQUANDERED, it only took Brown 10 years to waste over £1.2trn of our money (with the able assistance of the equally useless Ed Balls) and bankrupt Britain. Then, of course, Cameron gave us his chum Osborne to run the UK’s economy totally into the ground.

In business, you don’t make the guy from the photocopying room financial director, just because he’s your mate – in politics, that’s totally normal practice!

Trump has taken a business approach. He’s interviewed the best candidates and chosen the ones he believe are most competent. With Trump we may be getting the most professional and experienced US government for many decades. And a government run by competent people, rather than the usual preening, greasy careerist political fools, can achieve great things.

2. Actions speak louder than words

Most politicians have built their careers on words – endless speeches and endless interviews carefully saying the right thing. Perhaps none more so than Mr ‘all-talk-no-trousers’ Obummer who seems to have spent 8 years watching opinion polls, admiring himself in the mirror and giving rousing talks to anyone stupid enough to be taken in by his carefully-scripted, empty rhetoric.

Trump’s career, in contrast, has been a series of projects – borrow money, buy a bit of land, build something and start earning revenue to pay back the borrowed money and make a profit. This is all about planning, budgeting, action and delivering, not about vacuous, flatulent Obamaspeech. And Trump will bring the same ‘plan it – do it’ approach to government.

When politicians launch projects, all they care about is the initial PR. None of them have the experience to actually deliver anything. Tony Blair’s great new NHS computer system was typical of many politicians’ feelgood initiatives – launched with a £2.4bn budget, it was eventually scrapped after £6bn was wasted. But Blair didn’t care. He’d already moved on to new ‘triumphs’ and the public have short memories. Then there was the London Olympics – budget £2.4bn, actual cost to taxpayers £9bn. Or… there are plenty more like this.

That’s how too many politicians run government. That’s no way to run a business.

Trump will be judging his people on their actions and what they deliver, not their words. Things will happen

3. Shaking up the organisation

When I was a consultant, one trick we used to shake up organisations that were moribund, soporific, wasteful and incapable of meaningful action was to launch a 90-day or 100-day war. This could be a ‘100-day Sales War’ where we bashed a few heads together in the salesforce and got them selling. Or it could be a ‘100-day War on Waste’ or ‘Productivity Improvement Drive’ or whatever. The key was to launch a series of clear actions achieving measurable goals and demonstrating that change was happening, was happening fast and was here to stay.

When the Coalition took over from Labour and found there was no money left, the first thing George Osborne and Danny Alexander should have done was to have launched a ‘100-day War on Waste’ to force every government department to find 1% or 2% in immediate savings. This would have shaken up the civil service and shown our useless civil self-servants that change had arrived and things would be different. But, as neither they nor their advisers had any experience of working in organisations, Osborne and Alexander missed this opportunity and the civil servants just carried on as usual wasting our billions while paying themselves ever more to do this.

In contrast, Trump has repeatedly emphasised his plan for his first hundred days and has already signed ten Executive Orders signalling there’s a new sherrif in town and change has arrived

You stupid, lefty, progressive cnut-heads!

Finally, here’s a small story that might cheer up your weekend

The limousine that was set on fire during the anti-Trump anarchist protest in downtown Washington on Inauguration Day is owned by a M*sl*m immigrant, Muhammad Ashraf, the owner of Nationwide Chauffeur Services, who says the damage could cost his company $70,000 as the car was damaged in a riot and therefore wouldn’t be covered by the insurance:

Ashraf’s employee, Luis Villarroel, 58, was dropping a client off at their destination when things turned ugly. Protesters smashed doors and windows in the vicinity, but then turned their attention to Villarroel and the limo. People began pounding on the car and started throwing stones and bricks in his direction. The driver ended up going to the hospital for cuts on his hands and arms from glass being shattered by thrown projectiles.

“[We’ve] been in business for over 25 years and this is the first time this has happened,” Ashraf said

So, the rioting lefties assumed the stretch limo was owned by a ‘rich, Trumpist, capitalist bastard’. In fact, the owner was a M*sl*m immigrant!

Ha-ha-ha-ha-he-he-he-he-arf-arf-arf-chuckle-chuckle – stupid lefty cnut-heads!!!!!!

    Great summation of why this is going to be a great Presidency. Hope he can impart some sense of urgency and drive into May today (a big ask I know.)

  • Chris

    Unfortunately Mrs May ceased useful employment in 1997 but she did at least work in a reasonably responsible job for 20 years before that. If she wants to call a halt to ‘war for the sake of war’ that must be good but what on earth will we do with 2 massive aircraft carriers?

  • David Craig

    Don’t worry about the aircraft carriers – we don’t have any planes to fly from them. They’re just ‘make work’ projects for the freckled ones north of the border.

    Wonder how much IT talent Google think they are missing out on in failed states like Yemen, Sudan and Somalia etc?

    How many of these “refugees” that will only find safety in the US will, on getting their Green Cards, return to their homelands for holidays and to marry? The tiny percentage of real refugees are exempt as they are Christians or Yazidis who are demonstrably in mortal danger every day.

    A first-class demolition of the fake outrage over the Trump “refugee” “ban”. Enjoy!
