Trump Book Paints Devastating Picture of Obama

By    |   Wednesday, 07 December 2011 04:43 PM

When Donald Trump considered running for president earlier this year, pundits said he was doing it for publicity.

Now in Trump’s new book, “Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again,” we learn what it was really all about: Trump believes President Barack Obama has been a disaster and wants to expose him for what Trump sees as the good of the country.

In doing that, “Time to Get Tough” succeeds as no book has so far. The combination of Trump’s business acumen, his no-nonsense prose, and first-class research have produced an important, devastating portrait of this president and his impact on America.

The fundamental problem is that Obama “is more concerned with pursuing some sort of bizarre ideological mission that flies in the face of America’s free-market tradition,” Trump writes.

“Based on their words and policies, Michelle and Barack Obama apparently believe that capitalism and entrepreneurship are bad,” Trump says. “The way they see it, raising taxes is a way to punish people for having the audacity to work hard and get rich.”

Trump quotes first lady Michelle Obama’s advice to a women’s group in Ohio: “Don’t go into corporate America. You know, become teachers. Work for the community. Be social workers. Be a nurse . . . Make that choice, as we did, to move out of the money-making industry into the helping industry.”

To tell people that “being in business is somehow illegitimate and not part of the ‘helping industry’ is a horrible message to send to people,” Trump says.

By this logic, “creating a company that creates tens of thousands of jobs and provides employees an honest way to feed their families and send their kids to college is somehow to engage in activity that is not part of the ‘helping industry,’” Trump writes.

The reason “this country is an economic disaster right now,” Trump says, “is because Barack Obama doesn’t understand how wealth is created — and how the federal government can destroy it.”

Liberals “scratch their heads and wonder why businesses don’t want to hire,” Trump says. The answer is simple: “Companies know Obama is anti-business, and his government-run healthcare takeover has created a major disincentive to hire new workers,” Trump says. “So business leaders aren’t hiring.”

Raising taxes, as Obama wants to do, merely forces business owners to “lay off employees they can no longer afford,” Trump says. “It also drives up prices, encourages businessmen and women to move their businesses (and their jobs) to other countries that have far lower tax rates and regulatory costs, and sends people scrambling for tax shelters.”

Even the kid selling lemonade from a stand knows that — but not Obama, Trump says. “He’s never worked in the private sector or made a payroll,” Trump notes.

Because of Obama, “We have become a laughingstock, the world’s whipping boy, blamed for everything, credited for nothing, given no respect. You see and feel it all around,” Trump says.

The country needs to send Obama a message in 2012.

“Mr. President, we’re not interested in your utopian vision of ‘fundamentally transforming’ America,” Trump writes. “We like the vision our Founding Fathers and the Constitution created just fine. If that’s what you meant by ‘hope and change,’ you can keep the change. We’re not interested.”

Instead, America needs “a leader who will get tough, get smart, and get America working again,” writes Trump, who has said he will endorse a candidate after moderating the Newsmax ION Television Debate on Dec. 27 in Des Moines, Iowa.

When it comes to garnering publicity, Trump is in a class by himself. Branding his real estate projects has been a key secret to his success. But, for a businessman who lives in liberal New York City and needs support from all sides, to publicly reveal his political views and take on the president takes a certain amount of guts.

Some years back, Trump erected a huge American flag in front of his Mar-a-Lago home and club in Palm Beach, Fla. Flying from a 70-foot pole, the flag’s overall dimensions were 15 times larger than the town’s restrictive regulations allow. As noted in my story "Don’t Underestimate Donald Trump for President," the town began fining him $1,250 a day.

As with his presidential plans, local pundits said he was doing it for publicity. But long before Trump decided to make his political views publicly known, his longtime butler, Anthony Senecal, told me it was simply a manifestation of Trump’s patriotism. Thus, regardless of how serious he was about a presidential bid, his goal all along was to influence the conversation and have a say in who winds up in the White House.

“I love America,” Trump writes in “Time To Get Tough.” “And when you love something, you protect it passionately — fiercely, even. We are the greatest country the world has ever known. I make no apologies for this country, my pride in it, or my desire to see us become strong and rich again.”
