Lawrence Solomon: The real reason Donald Trump won the presidency? He’s a true conservative

One year after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States, establishment Republicans as well as establishment Democrats remain at a loss to explain why. To those on the left, Trump is a travesty – a white supremacist and sexist Neanderthal who must be impeached. To those on the right, especially the Never Trumpers, Trump is no less an aberration — a liberal masquerading as a conservative, a fraud willing to say or do anything who somehow won last November and who deserves to be removed today.

    The circuit judges being appointed now, at a furious rate, are according to those in the know uniformly Scalia type textualists, and typically quite young.

    I doubt whether Trump is an ideological conservative but he does want to win, and unlike leftist ideas conservative ideas work and result in success. So he’ll have some of that, thank you.

      These judges are mainly just replacing conservative contemporaries. Liberal judges typically won’t give up their seats to be replaced at this time. Trump had to push back but he’s too weak to do that so he ends up being a place holder for the next Democrat in the Oval Office.
      Whoever that is won’t mess around.
      “Trump is not an ideological conservative” – all we hear is this. Trump doesn’t know what he is which means Democrats usually get to tell him.

    This is similar to the article. Seems not all Germans are Socialists………..

    President Trump is an American President.

    This is the type of person Americans have wanted and have been lied that they have been voting for over generation. The difference is that President Trump meant what he said. And President Trump solves problems, not create pork projects and regulations for those at the federal trough to feast on.
    If the people in office now were who they ran as and did what they ran on, America would be making itself even greater again right now.
    With tremendous opposition in the Democrat and republican establishment parties Trump has done wonders so far. America has to continue aiding the good stregnth of its eople, and stop the draining of wealth and capabilities to the globalists
