Trump, like many republicans have in common, builds his country strength by bullying others. Its not about better products, lower taxes and global cooperation. Its about fear, threats and intimidation.
With current American military spending there is no threat in the world that can harm America. Combined this with clever diplomacy could yield amazing results for USA, which is known as country of inventors.
But Trump is a real estate mogul. He invented nothing. He is just ...
... renovating towers. And has a history of bullying the tenants based on their financial or racial profiling. In 70's he settled a 2 year lawsuit regarding such allegations.
Healthy and wealthy America is best what can happen to the rest of the world, because America was such a guaranty of peace. Current developments put it to question, as US evolves into the perpetrator.
Anyway what even "Make America Great Again" means. People think this is the America of the 50's. The ultimate power where such today's powerhouses like China, Japan, Germany and even Russia where poor and helpless. By then all Europe and Asia was underdeveloped and war torn.
Now many countries are state of the art creations. With economies smaller but several times stronger per capita than USA and its western allies. UAE, Singapore, to mention the richest, can afford a standard of living not achievable by others.
This is what makes US and UK so anxious. The leaders of the free world, most powerful countries on the globe cannot afford for example a decent health insurance system for their citizens.
This must be for the citizens of those countries, who still believe that we are in the 80's and America just won the arms race with Soviet Union, very painful.
This is the reason Americans are voting for miracles. Obama was promising hope, change and amazing results. His legacy is Trump :( Trump promised the same thing: change, hope and making something great.
The only problem is that a good speech will not feed a family. A cheering crowd will not produce competitive products. Saying something will not necessarily make it happen.
The only thing that can make the change is what Americans started more than 200 years ago. Courage to invent, courage to sell, courage to cooperate. This feats in American society seem to be fading away.
People do not want to risk and do something. They demand that somebody will do it for them. But this is not how the world works, and socialism which failed every time it tried to be implemented proved it, that every citizen has to work for himself. And then the common effort will make the country successful.
But neither Donald Trump nor his voters are prepared for such sacrifices. They want quick results, best by ripping others off. But in order to do it they need a strong military and this is the reason Trump needs a strong army.
Every country needs and deserves security. Every country needs powerful army to fend off enemies. But the current rhetoric suggests that it will be an offensive structure. And this is not probably the way America wants to be great again.
