Trump is as east coast elite establishment as you can possibly get - trust fund baby, Manhattan born-and-bred, elite boarding schools, etc, etc. He just happens to have a loud mouth and thus has poorer manners than most WASPs. He has about as much a connection with flyover country as Barbara Streisand. His talent is knowing how to say BS to the right audience in order to get reactions. But that crap doesn't reflect some sort of philosophy. It is whatever is needed in that particular situation, with that particular audience. His life has proven in spades that he will do what he needs to do in order to advance himself. I realize there are many who measure his success by such one-dimensional metrics as the DJA. Presidents have minimal affect on the economy. Whatever affect they do have is not something that can be created in a small window of time. There is a long lag before any policy decisions have any good or bad result. Presidents are either lucky or unlucky in their timing for being in office - whether it coincides with growth or not.
My problem with Trump is that we have a person representing the leading position of our country who does not practice common decency in how he treats others, what he says or his actions. That too me outweighs any perceived good from a trade deal decision here or a immigration rule there. Our country has a person at the helm who I would not invite into my home, would not trust alone with my daughter, would not ever do a business deal with, and would never stop to listen to were he not president. He is a masterful self-promoter, but he is not crazy like a fox in my opinion. I look forward to the day he leaves. I believe history will judge his term harshly and reflect poorly on us for putting him where he is.
