You notice how people so often say they don’t like Trump because of his personality, and how many of these people take that as a reason to reject him? A lot of people still do that but I have noticed more now who will acknowledge he is doing a good job, but still diss him for having a bad personality. I think this is BS in either case. (My question to the later though is – will you vote for Him?)
Trump demonstrates amazing self restraint and the ability to put aside personal feelings and do the right thing for the sake of the people. The way the dems hold him and the country ransom to get irrelevant goodies for their selfish agenda is maddening for anyone, and it is for Trump. He called it very ‘painful’ dealing with the democrats. But in spite of how unfair they are to him he makes every reasonable effort to get along with everyone including those who treat him or others very badly. He doesn’t do this blindly at all; he simply measures what is going to be the most effective way to get results, and he knows good relationships are a very important factor in this. This is very hard to do and takes a lot of skill. He also has incredible energy to keep on top of everything, and at getting the message to his team and to the people. That takes a lot of energy. He has to be a master of managing his energy. Energy comes from great inner motivation, insight and love to serve and accomplish an important gaol. Passion to help others gives one great energy. Enthusiasm means God within. He has this in spades, and those who are close to him express it but he doesn’t get a lot of credit for it. He doesn’t care that much as long as the purpose is served. We are incredibly fortunate to have a president who is working to end this as quickly as possible. For instance, he says even when we go back, for a time we need to keep practicing measures of social distancing, that’s being on point. All these things are a demonstration of exceptional spiritual and practical intelligence.
t’s interesting that Trump called dealing with the dems ‘painful’. He could, as many of us would do, say that they are jerks and fools and we hate what they are about and doing. By saying it is ‘painful’ he implies that he is dealing with it within himself. It is an honest description; he sees clearly what they are doing, and he is not shucking responsibility, but keeping his feeling in his own power to handle, between him and God. This is a spiritual skill of one who knows himself, and doesn’t give their power away to others. It’s painful, it’s difficult, be he doesn’t let others discourage him by their frustrating, obstructing, and unfair behavior. Nobody gets in his head; that’s why he is such a great debater. He’s a fascinating study in self-possession and confidence with the highest of stakes.
Even if Trump did have a bad personality, a man is known by his fruit, and Trump’s fruit is magnificent. You all have probably seen, how I and others, have put several posts here showing Trump’s profound love for prayer and for the Lord, and we have all talked about the great results he has achieved.
I guess for the dems its like when you have a guy on your basketball team that is a great and hard fighter. His teammates love to play with him but not against him. This comes from, how in campaign mode, Trump plays hardball. He comes up with ingenious ways to characterize opponents with truthful tag names; like ‘Sleepy Joe’, ‘Pocahontas’, and ‘crooked Hillary’. This may be demeaning, but his names have truth to them, and that’s how the game of politics is played now. It is part of mass marketing – you exaggerate and create an image people will remember. When it’s based on truth it sticks. He makes it funny and it works. He must of learned how to walk the line of playing hard ball and inspiring people in the dog eat dog business world as a boss, and in TV. The others use the same technique. Trump is just a lot better at it – and they hate him for it. Trump plays within the rules of politics. But the dems don’t play within the rules and yet the dem voters give their candidates a free pass, while condemning Trump. The bottom line is this – the dems hate Trump because God is using Him, and they either can’t see that or they don’t like God. That is not a PC thing to say, but I believe it’s true.
The dems could easily join the good and winning team if they want to be winners. In any case I think Trump has a great personality. He is constantly giving credit and building up people and leaders at the highest level. He is the leader of very talented and ambitious leaders, and he has won them over by showing them he fights for God and the people in a way they never conceived of, – and now – they will run through a wall for him. Only the best of the best could do that -it takes profound talent. At the same time he has a tender heart for the people and the suffering, and has the skill and determination to take care of them. He knows how to build himself up and how to put himself aside at the right time for the sake of others. This inspires great respect. He is 100% real when most politicians are into appearances, so spiritually he occupies the center of gravity and they know it, and they abide by it; and for doing so they become better people and professionals.
In truth Trump has a great personality, a truly exception one, and as I said before – there is no one else that could be doing what he is doing right now, not even close to the same integrity, energy, honesty and results. That is not something to take for granted, especially for those us who are getting the benefits of it for God’s sake! Those who dismiss him with the reason that he has a bad personality are not being honest with themselves, but using that as an excuse to not look closer.
Lord Jesus we give thanks for president Trump and his team who are laser focused on every possible angle to make the country work, and to serve your will for America. God speed. Amen.
