Trump survival is one of the most debated issues this time around in Washington. Accusations, counter accusations, minority rights, ban on travel, and the list goes on and on. Trump keeps everyone guessing what his next move might be.
Wait But Why Trump Survival Is An Issue?
Well, to the mere mortals, President Donald Trump is here to stay and rule for the rest of his tenure. Forget about getting elected for the second time. There is so much that needs to get in the right order before Trump’s team can even thinking of having a second go at the White House.
It is a long-standing tradition that the outgoing President’s team gives advice to the incoming team of the newly elected President.
Wait but why does Donald Trump need advice?
It is one thing to make hefty promises in the election campaign. However, it is entirely a different story to keep those promises.
What would have been the Obama team advice to Team Trump?
Well, there is not one thing they would have told the new team. But the Obama team would have surely let the Trump team know to avoid big statements. To ask Donald Trump not to indulge in micromanaging the things. To let the professionals at their jobs do their work without any interference. The firing of FBI Director is not a shining example of letting professionals do their job.
Republicans Against Trump
A lot of the Republicans initially said they would support any candidate nominated by the party for the Presidential election. However, many of these Republicans later did not support Trump. The list of Republicans against Trump include the following names among so many others.
- Jeb Bush
- Lindsey Graham
- John Kasich
- George Pataki
- Carly Fiorina
- William Bennet
- Bill Brock Condoleezza Rice
There was a famous campaign against Trump called with different names like anti-Trump, Dump Trump, and Never Trump Movement. It was a joint effort by some of the Conservatives and Republicans to stop Donald Trump from becoming President of the United States. This campaign seriously threatened Trump survival as a potential nominee to become the leader of the free world.
Petition Against Trump
Donald Trump survival has many threats including a petition called Impeach Donald J Trump. As of writing this post, ‘Impeach Donald J Trump’ has reached 248,506 supporters. The petition accuses the US President of treason. The petition further states that the current US President and his administration are a constant threat to the US national security.
Foreign Threats to Donald Trump Survival
Donald J Trump has planned an overseas trip, the first for him. The Trump foreign trip is also a big gamble on his part after criticizing everyone out there including China, Europe, and entities like NATO. The recent alleged leak of confidential information to Russians is another great test for Trump survival.
