Donald Trump has proven time and again that he can always surprise the media and his supporters almost every day of the week. This is not to mention that kids love Donald Trump, given the fact that he just a month ago offered children free helicopter rides in Iowa. This was during a Donald Trump-sponsored circus.
Currently, several polls have indicated that if the general elections were held today, Donald Trump would lead. According to Press TV, a recent nationwide survey by Survey USA showed that Trump currently has a 45 percent nationwide support while Hillary has 40 percent.
This is a sharp contrast to the 59 percent Hillary Clinton enjoyed in June compared to the paltry 34 percent Donald Trump had back then. This is according to a sampling carried out by CNN/ORC.
That said, Donald Trump does have a solid outlook on a number of agendas that would appeal to a wide range of voters, which include the expansion of trade. In regards to this, Donald Trump recently cited that American products currently don’t have the same reach as they used to. The following is the statement as quoted by Business Insider.
“Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories anymore… When did we beat Japan at anything? They send their cars over by the millions. And what do we do? When was the last time you saw a Chevrolet in Tokyo? It doesn’t exist folks; they beat us all the time.”
Donald Trump has also indicated that once he becomes president, he will undertake a health welfare overhaul. He poked holes at Obamacare, saying even its website is buggy despite having billions of dollars in funding. The following is the statement as reported by Time.
“It is a disaster. And remember the $5 billion website? Five billion we spent on a website. And to this day it doesn’t work. A $5 billion website. I have so many websites I have all over the place. I hire people, they do a website, It’ll cost me $3.”
That said, Donald Trump does have one crucial element that is going for him – he can fund his own campaign. This means he doesn’t have to be anybody’s puppet and can stand as a solo candidate and no one can really do anything about it.
He yesterday reiterated this on Twitter, saying, “By self-funding my campaign, I am not controlled by my donors, special interests or lobbyists. I am only working for the people of the U.S.!”
It may seem like a trivial point but for someone as “radical” and seemingly “hands on” as Donald Trump, being someone else’s puppet would certainly be a bummer.
