On Sunday night, November 13, 2013, Donald Trump, President-Elect, was all nice and subdued for his interview as correspondent Lesley Stahl questioned him on what the nation was to expect with his administration.
The following points were covered. The wall on the Mexican border “could have some fencing”, as he still wants to put up that border wall between the United States and Mexico:
“I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words,” said Trump when he first announced his candidacy in June 2015.
So, will Trump follow through with his grand plan?
“Yes,” he vowed again on “60 Minutes,” he plans to build a wall — or at least a fence.
“I’m very good at this, it’s called construction,” Trump told Stahl.
“They’re talking about a fence in the Republican Congress. Would you accept a fence?” Stahl asked.
“Yeah, it could be – it could be some fencing,” Trump replied.
Trump still is not sure if he will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton over those dastardly e-mails:
“If I win, I’m going to instruct the attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there’s never been so many lies, so much deception,” Trump said.
“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law of our country,” Clinton snapped back.
“Because you’d be in jail,” Trump said.
But, just days later after being elected the 45Th president of the United States, Trump showed signs of having ingested a drug cocktail of Thorazine/Haldoperol/Lithium as he told Ms. Stahl. When asked if he would follow through on his threat, Trump trumpeted:
“I’m going to think about it,” he said. “Um, I feel that I want to focus on jobs, I want to focus on health care, I want to focus on the border and immigration and doing a really great immigration bill. We want to have a great immigration bill. And I want to focus on all of these other things that we’ve been talking about.”
“You called her ‘Crooked Hillary,’ said you wanted to get in jail, your people in your audiences kept saying, ‘Lock em’ up,’” Stahl reminded Trump.
“She did some bad things, I mean she did some bad things…,” Trump said. “I don’t want to hurt them. I don’t want to hurt them. They’re, they’re good people. I don’t want to hurt them. And I will give you a very, very good and definitive answer the next time we do ‘60 Minutes’ together.”
Whew. Then again, maybe Mr. Trump had a few sessions of electroconvulsive therapy.
He did seem like so far he was mightily holding it together.
Trump screeched that he would repeal Obamacare and would immediately replace it.
Never mind that he has not offered anything that would truly help many Americans, but, how he expects to immediately put into effect lickety-split a health care system that addresses all American’s health care, then maybe it is time Trump informed the rest of America how he can whoosh a new health care system into being when it took President Obama two years just to get the Affordable Care Act passed the venomous Congress.
Maybe Trump knows something the rest of us are not privy to.
“No, we’re going to do it simultaneously. It’ll be just fine. We’re not going to have, like, a two-day period and we’re not going to have a two-year period where there’s nothing. It will be repealed and replaced. And we’ll know. And it’ll be great health care for much less money. So it’ll be better health care, much better, for less money. Not a bad combination,” Trump said.
Umm, yeah. Oh, and I guess you won’t know what to do just yet since you are still keeping two aspects of the original Obamacare: pre-existing conditions still covered and children living with their parents for an extended period.” (They can currently stay on their parents’ plan till age 26.)
On the issue of racism attacks at his rallies and stump speeches, he pleaded ignorance and dementia when Ms. Stahl stated to him that “Black Americans feel that they have a big target on their backs.? since Trump started his campaign and with his allowing so much racist violence at his rallies.
Donald Trump said he’s “saddened” to hear about acts of violence carried out in his name either by his supporters or targeting his supporters.
On “60 Minutes,” days after the election, Trump directly addressed those who would resort to violence, telling them, “Stop it.”
He told Stahl that he hadn’t heard about reports of racial slurs or personal threats by his supporters targeting African-Americans, Latinos and gays. But he promised that he’s going to bring the country together.
“I am so saddened to hear that. And I say, ‘Stop it.’ If it — if it helps. I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: Stop it,” Trump said.
Well, what do you call this, Mr. Trump:
Guess Black Americans had better prepare themselves with having to see these words on a daily basis:
Black Americans are not strangers to hard work, but this type of work will be an entirely different experience where lifetime enslavement will not be an option.
And now, drumroll please—Mr. Trump will refuse to take presidential salary or big vacations.
Alright, Mr. Trump.
You will definitely be held to that.
When your tax returns are requested, and you stated you would accept a $1.00″ salary, no where had there better be any extra overtime cash showing up, else you will have to prepare yourself for an audit.
Just don’t let down those Rust Belt supporters of yours.
Something tells me that it won’t just be defenseless Black Americans they will be taking their rage out on if you don’t deliver what you promised them.
What say you, Mr. Trump? Feeling like you bit off more than you could chew? Feeling like it is not going to be all fun and games?
Or have you been preparing your smoke-and-mirrors Oz routine decades ago to the ultimate refinement?
