The Donald’s just solving problems

We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”
~ Albert Einstein

You don’t become a multi-billionnaire building buildings if you can’t solve problems. Exactly how The Donald approaches problems, I don’t know. I do know he looks at them differently than politicians do. Thomas Sowell explains:

“No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems — of which getting elected and re-elected are No. 1 and No. 2. Whatever is No. 3 is far behind”.   

Today, for example, he is hosting leaders from the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Israel to sign accords that would establish normal diplomatic relations between the countries. 

How many other presidents did that?

This week Trump also signed four executive orders aimed at lowering the high cost of prescription drugs in the United States.

How many other preidents did that?

“The Democratic convention, you’re going to see a lot of politicians who have been doing this for a long time, complaining about problems that quite frankly they haven’t solved so you’ll hear a lot of complaints,” Jared Kushner, senior adviser to President Trump, said. “But what you’ll hear about during President Trump’s convention is a lot of the successes that he’s had,” Kushner added. “He’s a results president. He’s a businessman president.”

There you go.

The list of the problems he has solved is astonishing. Give that list a skim.

You won’t know this because of the unrelenting anti-Trump bias in the media. Search for “Trump problem solving” and you’ll get headlines like these:

  • Donald Trump’s Abysmal Problem-Solving Skills
  • Analysis: President Trump creates problems and then rushes in to solve them.
  • Trump Seems To Think TV Can Solve His Coronavirus Failures
  • How do you solve a problem like Donald Trump?

Back in 2013, in Des Moines, Iowa, Trump said. “We have a country that’s going to hell, and you know, I know the reasons why. I know how to fix them. A lot of people don’t. And I watch politicians, and you know, very rarely would you find anybody that would know how to fix it.”
