Some perspective on our president

In the wake of the Michael Cohen guilty plea, the anti-Trump rhetoric has ratcheted up a few decibels. But let’s put things in perspective. 

Does Donald Trump have flaws? Yes. Is he arrogant, sometimes abrasive? I would say so. Has he had some problem relations with women? Likely so, though I hesitate to take press accounts at face value these days.

On the other side, Donald Trump is not intimidated by the FBI or British intelligence. That dirty gang has had its claws on every president and almost every congressman you can name in recent memory. The reason the British MI6 and the FBI are hell-bent on getting rid of Trump has nothing to do with his personality and his quirks. 

Trump said in his campaign that he wanted to improve relations with Russia, end the senseless wars in the Middle East, rebuild U.S. infrastructure and restore the Glass-Steagall law to rein in Wall Street. Those are fighting words to the Anglo-American patrician establishment.
Trump is the first president in a long time who hasn’t buckled to the pressure from this gang of elite thugs. If you ask me, it’s worth putting up with a few annoying character flaws.
