One of these days a big and extended "VaAau!" Echoed across the world press and the blogosphere.


"Trump is a man of business"

The pre-election ratings of one of the presidential candidates from the Republican Party, the famous billionaire and showman Donald Trump soared so sharply and highly that virtually all other candidates from the aforementioned party lost any hope of further participation in the pre-election primaries.

In just a month Trump managed not only to become an absolute leader among Republican candidates, but also to hell to break the stereotype of the uncontested election victory Hillary Clinton.

No matter how hard the liberal propagandists tried, how much mud they poured out, what only labels they did not hang, everything was in vain.


Trump is a racist. Trump is a bastard. Trump hates women. Trump is a dummy puppet. Trump is being promoted. Trump is eating people. All this, in the final analysis, had the opposite effect. The American voter saw in the shocking candidate something special, interesting and lively.

It is only in Hollywood films and the imagination of the "Russian intelligentsia" that the States appear to be a beautiful cloudless country where people live without knowing the problems and troubles, eat jamon for breakfast, lunch and dinner and are unceasingly rejoicing over the victorious love and tolerance.

In fact, the modern US has a lot of problems, like any other state.

Low employment of the population, colossal crime rate, racial problems, illegal emigration, social inequality, low level of mass education and medicine, a huge economic debt and so on ...

Donald Trump is not afraid to talk about all this and is not shy in epithets and expressions. While most US politicians criticize the insidious tyrant Putin and talk about Ukraine's democratization, Trump cuts the truth about the womb that really worries people.

In my opinion, this is the first thing that bribes Americans in it the most. But quality populism is not enough. There are other aspects that greatly differentiate him from other candidates.


Trump is fabulously rich and can afford not to grovel before financial corporations and lobbyists, demanding in return for investment the promotion of their own interests. He does not have to walk with his outstretched hand and be humiliated. He is independent and able to pay for the election campaign on his own.
Another major advantage is the success story. Trump is a man of business. He has hundreds of real projects in various fields. Construction, real estate, media, literature, sports, show business. He is the embodiment of that same American dream. A fanatical workaholic who achieved everything with his work, energy and ideas. About such a person you can talk about anything, but it's impossible not to respect him.

I have already mentioned the lack of an alternative in the upcoming US presidential election. For several years the Americans were told that after the African American president, a woman must become the leader of the nation. A sort of religious mantra that was stitched by all the media, from fashion bloggers to Hollywood.

And, of course, who, if not Hillary Clinton, should become this very woman. Only there is one "but"! Hillary long ago ceased to be an unhappy first lady - an offended woman and turned to a majority of Americans (this is not what I thought up, these are opinion polls) in the infamous grandmother, scandal-monger, embezzler and lamerch sending secret state documents through free mail services.

60% of Americans (in some states, this percentage is much higher) categorically do not want to see Clinton as president. Remove at least a hundred more TV series "A Good Wife" or "House of Cards". Do not want to - that's all.

That's why Donald Trump is perceived by many as an alternative to the pre-election scenario that the ruling bureaucracy imposed on American society.

Trump breaks the existing political trends and creates new ones. Instead of confrontation with Russia, offers friendship. Instead of geopolitical terrorism, he wants to deal with domestic political problems.

The philosophy of his campaign was the motto "Let's make America great again". He perfectly understands that the existing political strategy is outdated and requires not even major repairs, but radical restructuring.

It will certainly be very difficult for Donald Trump to win in the upcoming presidential race, but it is already clear that his participation will be one of the most fascinating and spectacular election shows in American history.

PS If you are curious to observe the development of the phenomenon of Donald Trump in real time, I recommend the newly opened new information project "Trump-2016" .
