Trump may not have been the only one or the "best candidate" but he damned sure wasn't a career politician beholden to special donor interests and foreign powers. Somebody that understands and is successful in a major business enterprise is a person this country needs to lead it. We have gotten where we are today by electing people whose only job and ambition is to use your money to buy my vote. My opinion and it isn't humble. Furthermore, anyone fitting that mold has yet to present himself other than Trump. I hope they will but it remains to be seen. Until then ................the swamp awaits all.Trump was what we needed in 2016. He was not the best candidate by a long shot, just the best option available at the time. Trump did some great things for four years, and gave people a taste of what could be done and how to get it done. But to believe he's the only person that can accomplish great things for our country, is delusional and naive.
Trump winning in 2016 was an anomaly. He was never suppose to win that election. I strongly suspect that election was rigged for Hillary to win, but they miscalculated what was needed for a win, because Trump got more support and votes than they though was possible. I also strongly suspect, that they threw caution out the window in 2020. Biden was going to win, no matter what. Even if Biden had stroked out, was brain dead, (in the medical sense of the word!) and on life support, he was still going to win that election. They also didn't care about appearances of fraud, or tampering, because they knew that they had those bases covered as well.
Jump forward to 2024. More than likely, Biden won't be around, even if he's still alive, but Harris will be, and just to be clear, the same puppet strings attached to Biden, are clearly attached to Harris as well. And unless the DC swamp is cleaned up, Harris has very good shot of getting re-elected in 2024. Trump talked about cleaning up the DC swamp, and that was IMO one of his biggest failures. He should have started right in the White House, and worked down. There were way too many people with their own agenda's and way too many looking to take Trump down. He also should have started clearing out much of the Obama hold-overs from the start. There was way too many of them in key leadership positions, that used their power against Trump.
Unless the swamps are cleaned up, regardless of who runs is going to be irrelevant. Jesus Christ himself couldn't win in 2024 if the same political environment exists come 2024. The swamps need to be cleaned at the state and federal levels.
