There seems to be a huge conceptual gap between Trump and his most implacable critics on the left. Many highly educated, snobbish, upper-middle-class Democrats regard themselves as exemplars of "compassion" (which they have elevated into a supreme political principle) and yet they routinely assail Trump voters as ignorant, callous hate-mongers. These elite Democrats occupy an amorphous realm of subjective emotion, theoretical abstractions, and refined language.
But who is Trump? Trump is by trade a builder who deals in the tangible, objective world of physical materials, geometry, and construction projects, where communication often reverts to the brusque, coarse, high-impact level of modern working-class life of getting the stressful job done under budget.
Last week, that conceptual gap was on prominent display, as the media, consumed with their preposterous Russian fantasies and mirages, were fixated on former FBI director James Comey's so-called testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. In my opinion, Comey is an effete charlatan crook who should have been fired within 48 hours of either Hillary or Trump taking office.
Meanwhile, Trump was going about his business of building. The following morning, he made remarks at the Department of Transportation about "regulatory relief." He spoke about mundane iron, aluminum, and steel and he cut like a concrete saw through the airwaves. I later found the entire text on the White House website. Below, are some key passages that are well worth reading because they reveal the real Donald J. Trump:
Of course this rousing can-do speech got scant coverage in the “lame stream media or with the presstitutes. Middle-class and upper class elite journalists can't be bothered to notice the complex physical constructions that make modern civilization possible. The laborers who build and maintain these marvels are recognized only if they can be shoehorned into victim status. But if they dare to think for themselves and vote differently from their liberal Democratic overlords and plantation masters, they are branded as rubes and pariahs.

By the way, when President Trump spoke recently in Cincinnati, Ohio at Rivertowne Marina to business and union leaders and he said essentially the same thing that he said above.
President Trump recognizes that the business of America is business and Democrats have lost that focus and vision. The Democratic Party use to be the friend of the working man. They no longer ask what Jimmy Hoffa asked. Are you a friend of labor? President Trump is a friend of labor because he wants to put idle builders back to work.

So, President Trump, you “keep truckin on brother and put the pedal to the metal” and build, build, build!!!!!!!
Me and my “Make America Great Again” friends are sick of grid lock, potholes and crumbling roads in the U.S. We are sick of our crumbling inner cities and jealous of the glimmering buildings and economic dynamism in Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Israel, Hiroshima, Malaysia, Dubai, etc.

If Democrats have any hope of making the Democratic Party Great Again and retaking the White House, they must get off their high horse, lose the rabid, lunatic rhetoric, cast off the lunatic fringe and re-orient themselves toward practical reality and the free country they are damned lucky to live in.
