Most of America thinks Trump is fairly entertaining, but none more than Wall Streeters. If we're honest it's because most of his bile is directed elsewhere now and we're used to obnoxious New Yorkers (shit, just look in the mirror).
To be fair though, a lot of Trump policies are just better than the alternative. Case in point - Clinton wanted to put a no-fly zone over Syria, essentially starting a war with Russia. I'm no fan of Russia and think Trump's embrace of Putin is weird, but I also don't think you should go around poking bears either. That's because I'm not an idiot.
On the domestic side, I do think US companies should do more to help American workers. I don't think they should incorporate elsewhere, nor ship jobs overseas. They've become what they are because of a myriad of US support over the years and should reflect that in their hiring and strategic decisions.
The biggest case against Trump is simply that he believes strange things and that could get the country into trouble. An elegant way of describing how we rationalize this is as follows:
The Big Trump hypothesis: The president is a vindictive demagogue and a unique threat to Americans norms and institutions, with the potential to wreak havoc on the country’s politics, economics, and culture.
The Little Trump hypothesis regards these fears and declares: “meh." Instead, it posits that the president will be a loud yet minor figure, sound and fury signifying nothing; a wannabe superhero hemmed in by the limited powers of the executive branch. Rather than rule like a populist demagogue, he will mostly sign bills written by his pro-business staffers and approved by a pro-business Congress.
Dozens of State Department officials this week protested against U.S. policy in Syria, signing an internal document that calls for targeted military strikes against the Damascus government and urging regime change as the only way to defeat Islamic State. WSJ
That sounds about as likely as claiming overthrowing Saddam will destroy Al Qaeda. Oh, it did the opposite? My bad, next country...
Unfortunately this is also the foreign policy you get with Clinton. Stupid people.
[The British muslim] pleaded with the Tunisian jihadist manning the recruitment desk, even offering to be held prisoner by the Nusra Front while it did a background check on him. It was all to no avail. Finally the Tunisian offered to help him join another Islamist group, Ahrar al-Sham. Ifthekar refused. He knew that Ahrar permitted smoking, of which he most strenuously disapproved.
And so it was that Ifthekar, after being vetted for a fortnight by the group, joined ISIS.
Then, in December 2013, seven months after he arrived, Ifthekar was finally sent into battle in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor.
