Abraham Lincoln mulled “you can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” Trump’s lies have already begun to catch up with him in big ways. For instance, it’s becoming increasingly clear all the promises Trump made are just smoke mirrors. His “great negotiation skills” can be applied nowhere. Despite the fact that for the first two years in office during which Republican Legislators literally handed Trump the key to the Legislative body, his administration failed to accomplish anything of substance. You can only fool people for so long.
2.- Trump had no political baggage
The “virgin” entry into politics is almost always an advantage. If one was a successful “anybody in anything” as Trump claimed he was, as many people blindly believed he was, it was not difficult to make a case even in the face of blatant evidence Donald Trump had a lifetime of cheating and scheming the system which is not qualified as successful but to the naïve followers and supporters, that was good enough, much unfortunately. Regardless, he was a virgin in politics. As such, he was given a pass. However, Mr. Trump will enter 2020 with truckload of all sorts of baggage: untrustworthy, unethical, criminal and quite possibly treasonous. Undoubtedly, he will continue to attract crowds of rowdy and raunchy individuals who like a good entertainer which Trump is. As time marches on, more and more baggage – dirty, stinky, disgusting, gross – will be unloaded publicly at the White House front door for everyone to see. No matter what Trump does, it will be difficult if not impossible to escape dragging those baggage everywhere he goes on the campaign trail. Political baggage comes at a cost.
