One of the best lines from the Fox Business Republican Debate was when Donald Trump embraced the mantle of being the “angry candidate” representing the American people. The establishment in Washington is underestimating not only the level of anger, but the scope of anger from all factions of the electorate.
In the past week, Republican front-runner Donald Trump took a serious scolding from President Obama during the State of the Union address — as well as from South Carolina’s Republican governor, Nikki Haley, during her response to the State of the Union.
Trump has also caused some grumbling among conservatives for needling Ted Cruz over his supposed presidential eligibility questions. Cruz and others, meanwhile, have turned on Trump and his “New York values.”
But during Thursday night’s presidential debate, Trump showed he’s as angry and unapologetic as ever. His approach to the presidential race has clearly paid off in the polls, and it’s one he wasn’t going to abandon on the debate stage in Charleston, South Carolina, even amid scrutiny.
“I’m very angry,” Trump said without any hesitation in the Fox Business debate. “I will gladly accept the mantle of anger.” [Emphasis added]
We’re heading toward $20 trillion in debt. The military is being dismantled. Our enemies are getting stronger everyday. Our economy is in the toilet. Our health care system is being destroyed. Our borders are like a revolving door. Our government keeps growing. Our rights are curtailed at the whim of politicians.
And the fools in the Washington bubble can’t figure out why a good portion of the population is angry? They are more dense than I thought. Trump will carry this to the White House.
