Donald Trump and a leadership checklist

For those Tea Party people who are distressed that Donald Trump is now the presumptive GOP candidate, there’s an article on the American Spectator website by Don Surber about Trump’s qualifications. The intro and bullet points are extracted below. Click here to read the entire thing. For those who are still hoping that somehow Sen. Cruz still has a chance, perhaps this article will make you less apoplectic.

If a year ago someone told me I would be an advocate of Donald Trump, I would have laughed, because everyone knew he was a joke with a toupee. But on August 27, 2015, at a rally in Greenville, South Carolina, when Mary Margaret Bannister pulled his hair, we learned he does not wear a wig.

And in researching my upcoming book, Trump The Press, I learned he is no joke. He has developed the leadership skills needed to lead the free world.

In December 2014, Peter Economy of Inc. magazine wrote, “The Top 10 Skills Every Great Leader Needs to Succeed.” Trump has them all.

1. Inspires and motivates others.
2. Displays high integrity and honesty.
3. Solves problems and analyzes issues.
4. Drives for results. 
5. Communicates powerfully and prolifically.
6. Builds relationships.
7. Displays technical or professional expertise.
8. Displays a strategic perspective.
9. Develops others.
10. Innovates.
Bonus: Champions change.

The rest of Surber’s article is here. The photo at the top was deliberate: Take a look at Trump's kids and family.
