The following is a (promo) Prologue of a new book to come –One Hundred Days — the first 100 days of President Donald J. Trump by Don Storch.
The Prologue briefly describes a campaign that was run like no other, doing and saying the unexpected like no other in American history to become the 45th president of the United States.
Trump is no politician, he does things his way and tonight he and the first lady Melania will dance at celebratory balls to the song Frank Sinatra made popular, “My Way.”
My book is expected to be published in June of this year. Look for it on Amazon.com and in your local bookstores:
Donald J. Trump a billionaire real estate mogul from New York, who never ran for public office, entered the 2016 Republican primaries for President of the United States against 16 others, mostly polished GOP elitist operatives, beat the field and then faced the favorite Democratic nominee, defied pollsters, political pundits, the media and a rigged political system to become president-elect.
This is a book about President Trump’s first 100 days.
The election was a clear signal from the American people that it was time for a significant change after eight years of President Obama’s failed domestic and foreign policies and the divisiveness promulgated by this administration.
By the time the Republican Convention rolled around Trump was the only one still standing, a favorite of the people, but not the cronies that were running the Party.
On the Democratic side of the aisle was the chosen one, Hillary Clinton a loser 8 years ago, against President Barack Obama, a former Secretary of State, a Senator, former first lady to Bill Clinton and one labeled a ‘Crook’ by Trump throughout the campaign. The only other player running on the Dem ticket was socialist Congressman Bernie Sanders of New York.
He gave Hillary a run for her money, demonstrating with little support she wan’t a good candidate, but the Party elitists gave the nod to the entitled one who paid her Party dues and Sanders eventually dropped out.
It was a fiercely fought contentious battle with Hillary playing the role of the smooth politician and Trump the maverick, both making faux pas, she more than he.
Her blunders were multifaceted, but the tipping point was calling Trump supporters a ‘basket of deplorables and irredeemables.’
Hillary didn’t help herself with her decision to have a private server in the bathroom of her home to handle her emails while Secretary of State and thereafter; a violation of government regulations in the handling of classified and confidential materials.
The emails were eventually hacked from campaign manager John Podesta’s computer and turned over to WikiLeaks, only to be trickled out to the media as a form of Chinese water torture to the Clinton campaign.
There was no refutation of the authenticity of the emails by the Clinton campaign.
An investigation ensued by the FBI, press conferences were held, her husband Bill intervened by holding a clandestine meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch in a plane on the tarmac of the Phoenix Airport. The negative publicity did little to help Clinton, even though Loretta and Bill talked family and golf, they said, while Hillary was on the verge of indictment, but she only had herself to blame for that.
Trump was drawing as many as 36,000 people at his campaign rallies, Hillary was drawing a few thousand.
The left wing mainstream media had Clinton in the lead, Trump a loser. Stories were mostly favorable to Clinton and most unfavorable to Trump. Some cosy reporters even cleared their stories with the Clinton campaign before they were published.
Trump took his message directly to the public via Twitter in a 146 characters, bypassing the mainstream media.
On the evening of November 8th election day there were some signs beginning to surface that the pundits, the pollsters, the columnists and the left-wing media had gotten it all wrong in their prognostications.
On Wednesday morning, the DOW futures were down 800 points as Wall Street began to signal a Trump win, by the time the market opened it was up 300 points and Trump was declared president-elect. Since then and the inauguration the market recorded a 9 % gain on the basis of proposed Trump policies.
Trump won the 306 Electoral votes, a landslide by any standard, Clinton won the popular vote by a margin of 2.9 million votes most of which came from California and Trump found himself as President-elect.
While serving as President-elect since November 9 Trump went to work. He created or saved 1.2 million jobs, brought down the cost of building a new Air Force One, the presidential plane, and brought down the proposed costs of two fighter jets, the F-18 and F-23. He also has prevented several US Corporations from moving outside of the United States.
Sore loser child-like behavior erupted quickly among Democrats and the movement segued to a de-legitimizing campaign of the Trump presidency, ranging from trying to influence the Electoral College in their vote to accusing the Russians of influencing the US election.
The CIA said they had evidence that Russia influenced the US election, without providing such evidence and President Obama placed sanctions on Russia, despite their denials. Obama called the election legitimate, but said Russia attempted to influence the election, allegedly by releasing the Clinton emails, which were not properly protected by the Clinton campaign.
The de-legitimizing campaign took place on three fronts, disgruntled public Democrats through protests, actions from the White House through sanctions on Russia and rhetoric and through information released by the government Intel community, including fake personal salacious information on Trump all admittedly based upon rumor.
On the political front, John Lewis Georgia representative and civil rights hero announced he would boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20.
“I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” Lewis told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.
“You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right.”
Since then some 67 Democratic Representatives have joined Lewis in boycotting the inauguration
These are not patriots, they are being disrespectful to the nation they serve. An inauguration represents the peaceful transfer of power. It is an honor representing the Republic of the United States of America.
And thirdly, Dems are slow-walking the confirmation of the Trump cabinet nominations.
One Hundred Days is being written to record the first 100 days of a president who never ran for political office before and now finds himself President of the United States. It’s an astonishing political story.
I find the reaction to the Trump election by the left to be appalling, child-like in behavior and influenced by 8 years of the Obama administration, a community organizer, an Alinsky zealot, a socialist, bordering on Marxism, who has been duplicitous in his messaging, hypocritical in his policies and repulsive in his mendacity all of which has created the divisiveness and racism that has failed to unite America.
To prove my point within the last 48 hours of President Obama’s administration he reduced the sentence of a traitor that cost the lives of an untold number persons globally and reduced the sentence of 330 drug dealers yesterday with another untold number of deaths on his and their hands and prior to that released Gitmo terrorists so they can return to the ISIS battlefield and kill Americans once again.
The people selected the Donald for the change he promised and the change the people expect. This book will record those first 100 days.
