Mr. Trump, you are a great negotiator and have incredible business sense at a level that can discern and compete with world business. You know business intricacies and personalities — you can detect business behavior that is either equitable or unjust. You speak from the hip and get right to the objective at hand. You don’t like dealing with the problem as much as playing with the solution.
These could be incredible attributes and could propel you to new heights as president, if ... you realize that your mouth and its impatience detracts from the leadership potential that you have. Lead, don’t BARK! Commend and show genuine empathy, love, patience — things stubborn folks have problems with. Try reviewing Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and realize that ALL people — good and bad — have these needs. Any great leader uses this hierarchy in some form. Does this mean sacrificing goals and agendas? Absolutely not! Does it mean having to be politically correct at every turn? NO!
Be open and honest, and give us a clear business plan. Integral here — take some TACT lessons--really! Love your friends and keep your enemies. I feel that your “tweeting” is overused and abused. If you want the truth out there and counter the liberal media disaster or project sound leadership, get on the TV more, start your own magazine, or send out your weekly editorial. Also, have more fun. We don’t see that much.
Now Donald — make those anticipated SAVVY decisions without lining the pockets of the poor or rich, and make America Strong Again.
