"He can't keep his mouth shut". That was his downfall IMHO. Trump WAS the great Presidential experiment. He was not a politician and couldn't be bought. He was hated by both the Demonrats and many Republicans for that very reason. He didn't play by THEIR rules and upset THEIR corrupt applecarts. He was the most transparent President in history and one knew exactly where he stood on almost EVERYTHING via his tweets on Twitter. However, he never learned that the Presidency was not the same as being the CEO of his business(es). He had a Congress to deal with and many things he wanted to get done required more than just him demanding it. I still really like Trump for the above reasons and especially for the things he was able to accomplish as President. But the experiment has run it's course because he made the moderate Independent voters "uncomfortable" with his transparency and NOT being able to keep his mouth shut when necessary. So, they voted for the imbecile Brandon who we'll be lucky to survive financially and militarily until 2024. Brandon IS the most corrupt, opaque, incompetent President we've EVER had! I would vote for Trump again in a heartbeat if he were to be the Republican nominee, but he WILL LOSE because he can no longer get the moderate Independent vote. That's why I hope a DeSantis/Haley ticket will be forthcoming. Just my 2 centavos.Unbeatable if the American public wakes up, which may very well be the case. The big one is COVID policies. There are a lot of people, even on the blue side, that realized everyone else got it really wrong. I have several buddies who were blue and now said if DeSantis gets the nomination he's got their vote but Trump, no way.
Like I said, Trump got a raw deal. Jan 6th may not have been what it appeared to be but he got it wrong. His response was poor. He can't keep his mouth shut. This is the free-world and not a locker room or bar. I don't mind someone who is not afraid to tell you like it is. DeSantis has the talent to do that AND do it in a way that passes the smell test.
God help us if Trump doesn't get the nomination and runs as an independent. We're done.
