We need a Trump for Canada

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION - RE: Trump pres­i­dency

Many peo­ple have lit­tle or no re­spect for politi­cians these days. Whether it’s not keep­ing cam­paign prom­ises or fold­ing to spe­cial in­ter­ests. Fi­nally, “The Trump” has ar­rived. Dur­ing his first week, he used Ex­ec­u­tive Or­ders to kill Oba­macare, re­in­state the Key­stone pipeline, laid the law down to auto man­u­fac­tur­ers about out-of­coun­try pro­duc­tion and banned ISIS sym­pa­thiz­ers. His ap­proach may be akin to a “bull in a china shop”, and the poli­cies will prob­a­bly limit the num­ber of Amer­i­cans whose Christ­mas card list he is on, but these were cam­paign prom­ises that he has acted on with light­ning speed. All of the bleed­ing hearts are up in arms with him. If the first week of his man­date is an in­di­ca­tion, he will be revered as the pres­i­dent who gets the job done. We need a Trump in Canada to shake the foun­da­tions. Steven Hill, Hamil­ton
