There are some clear differences in the people running for president. They may sometimes be subtle, but if you look close enough, you’ll see them.
One of the biggest is the kind of people they work with. Hillary Clinton had a career of bullying, manipulating, and cajoling other people to support her. The insider democrats who are propping up her campaign today don’t do it willingly, but because they have no other choice.
Just look at the people she chooses to surround herself with: sycophantic yes-men, not forward-thinking, capable leaders (just look at her running mate, Tim Kaine).
Compare that with Donald Trump, who chooses to be around the brightest, most effective people available. Maybe it’s because he’s honed a sense for character over the years running a business. Or maybe he’s just smart enough to know that you’re only as good as the people you surround yourself with.
That’s only further proven by his support and cooperation with former rival, Ben Carson.
From Western Journalism:
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump gave enormous praise to Dr. Ben Carson on Wednesday while addressing pastors in Cleveland.
The former Apprentice star implied that if he were able to secure the presidency, there would be a “great place” for the retired neurosurgeon and former GOP presidential candidate in the White House.
“Not only is he a brilliant guy, but he’s got a brilliant heart. He loves people. And if all of this happens, there will be a great place for Ben,” Trump said.
“I don’t know if he wants that, but I know that he wants to help people,” Trump added. “But there will be a great place.”
Carson has been a supporter of Trump since March, playing a role in his campaign and speaking on behalf of the candidate in the press. Trump was smart to partner with Carson. As a Christian, doctor, and influential black conservative, Carson can offer quite a bit to his campaign and future administration.
But look at how the left tried to malign their alliance. It’s an ugly move, one they’d never do to Clinton.
Carson endorsed Trump for president in March, which prompted the liberal American Democracy Legal Fund to file a complaint with the Justice Department claiming that Trump illegally promised Carson a role in his administration in exchange for an endorsement.
Carson also has repeatedly denied a desire to be a part of Trump’s Cabinet. In early April, he told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd that he doesn’t “need a position.”
“What type of jobs has Donald Trump talked to you about in a Trump administration? What type of positions? Has he talked to you about being running mate? Has he talked to you about other positions?” Todd asked Carson.
Did Chuck Todd talk this way to any Hillary support? Did he insult liberal surgeons, politicians, or black leaders like this? Of course not. Todd and the rest of the media have a double standard. The kind of treatment they give to conservatives would never fly, should it be used on their liberal buddies.
Despite these kinds of attacks from the left, Carson continues to support Donald Trump. Trump’s recent comments suggests his great admiration for the man, regardless of what role he might play in the future.
Let’s hope Carson plays a large one.
