Krauthammer: The Idea Trump ‘Is Hiding His Tactics Is Preposterous’
KRAUTHAMMER: "His appeal is strength. It’s not revenge against the rich or whatever. His appeal, I’m strong, I’m successful, I’m smart, I’m pretty. I’m determined. I’ll get it done. I’m going to do ISIS. How? I can’t say because that’s a secret. I’m going to contain or really do damage to Iran. You just asked him are you going to attack? He says, ‘I can’t tell you because I don’t want to give it away.’ The reason he can’t tell you is because he has no idea how he is going to do it...
Come on, if you have an idea you would actually say the idea that he is hiding his tactics is preposterous. How are you going to do ISIS? I don’t know, but we will figure it out. How are you going to deport 10 million illegal aliens? His answer: management. How are you going to bring the jobs back? I’m going to send Carl Icahn over to China and he’ll bring the jobs back.
He has no answers except to say trust in me, I’m strong, I’m successful. But his genius is to understand that the sense is I don’t think that it’s America is necessarily changing. It’s always been changing. What he understanding is America has declined in the world and decline is a choice. Obama has chosen it. When he spoke in Germany in 2008 he said I’m a citizen of the world. And he acts like one but not like one of the president of the United States. What they want is strong."
