Why Donald Trump is running for president — and what to expect from his running mate

I just got the latest update from the campaign about their plans for 2020.

I’d like to offer a few notes on the process, as well as my thoughts on how Trump might or might not be a good VP.


This is not going to be a coronation, nor a coronavirus coronation.

We have some pretty strong ideas about how to govern and govern well.

It is the best way to run the country, and Trump’s candidacy has given us some solid insight into what kind of president we should be, even if we can’t yet predict what the rest of the country will do.


He’s not going back to the 1950s.

In the meantime, the election is a huge turning point for the future of America.


If you like your health care plan, you can keep your plan.


He will not put up with the kind of criticism we’ve seen from Hillary Clinton.


He won’t be able to claim he’s the only candidate who has been successful on immigration, though he did take a lot of heat for that.


He has no plans to change any of his other policies.

His views on guns and terrorism are not going anywhere, and he’s not moving away from the policies that caused the economic meltdown.


He’ll continue to make promises to the American people.

If we keep them, he’ll keep them.

We’re all in this together.


He is not interested in playing by the rules.


He thinks it’s important to let the American public know that we are a nation that cares about our country, but not about the people who are not in our country.


He loves the presidency.
