On August 8, 2016, I was watching author and speaker, Eric Bolling as he interviewed a person who is considered financially savvy. At the end of their challenging discussion on Fox News, the interviewee challenged Eric with something like this: “You had the opportunity to vote for one of sixteen individuals for President, but you have chosen this one?” [referring to Donald Trump]
The list on my website only lists 15 including Trump. So the fourteen Republicans alphabetically we’ve listed are: Bush, Carson, Criste, Cruz, Forina, Gilmore, Graham, Huckabee, Jindal, Kasich, Pataki, Paul, Rubio, and Santorum (plus Trump, #15).
So why did Mr. Trump, knock out every one of his contenders? In looking at his background online, I found that his parents enrolled him in a military school from which he graduated with good grades. I speculate that he handled each contender as if he was in warfare. He seemed to use his training on others who did not have his rules of engagement.
Some of these capable contenders are shocked to see that they didn’t make it to the desire of their hearts, to have the honor of being the presumptive nominee for President of the United States of America. Some of them are still smarting from their defeat, and others have forgiven Donald Trump for his tactics, and have gone on to be strong enough to state that they will vote for Trump regardless, as they want a well vetted Republican President.

Since early this year in 2016, to now, I’ve also learned something more about running for President in America. None of these talented Republicans could have possibly succeeded in becoming President. Why? You may ask.
The answer is because none of them were billionaires’ when running for this office. Donald Trump was able to fund his own campaign until his own Party “finally” accepted him and voted him in as their Republican nominee. All that cost him money. This is not the end of the story, though. Trump is up against the opposing candidate who is quite wealthy and the out going President of the USA who is also wealthy. Also Mrs. Clinton appeared on television, about a week ago, with her three billionaire friends who stood with her in their support. Who else of these 15 contenders could have possibly had this kind of additional financial help?
Donald, for the past month or more, is now asking his supporters to send him and the Republican Party donations to fund his campaign. And how concerning is it for our ruling President to give several televised negative opinions against his opposing party’s choice for President?
To the 14 or 15 brave contenders, be glad that you did not have to travel down this hazardous road. Know that you and your talents are truly appreciated, and please pray for Donald Trump and stand with him as he presses on through this attacking Lion’s Den machine of opposition.
