That may very well be true. Although, his real-estate portfolio seems mighty impressive from a layman's perspective.As a final entry: I don't think Donald Trump has ever once peddled a truly worthwhile product on the sordid market—whether you're judging steaks or education or television or real-estate—so you'll excuse me if I clutch my trepidations like so many pearls, and bear little faith regarding the policy promises he's peddling now.
Where I find Trump to have delivered consistently (witholding my belief that he's made his name synonymous with [excessive, gaudy] wealth) is in his resiliency - his refusal to take it lying down. Whether it be the bankruptcies, the failings at airlines or football teams, the merciful slaughtering of his Presidential dreams in 2012, or the drumming he took in the initial stages of this past cycle, Trump never once seemed to show blood or sigh in a miserable desperation. If the general positives which can be extracted from that attitude rub off on the public at large in any way, I can't help but view it as a collective triumph. Our populace seems to lack real ... drive.
Of course, others would likely characterize my perception of resilience as petulance.
