Country shouldn’t be afraid to trust Trump

I recently read an amusing article in the newspaper where both ex-presidents Bush said they will not support Donald Trump.

Because they wouldn’t vote for a Democrat, I can only assume they intend to start a write-in campaign for Jeb Bush. The Bushes fail to get the message from Republicans throughout the country: they’ve had enough Bushes.

What is it that both parties fear from Trump? Is it that a new broom sweeps clean and the voters will see that many incumbents don’t deserve the plush jobs they’ve had for decades? I doubt many of them would qualify for minimum-wage jobs when they leave office.

Critics keep saying that Trump has no political experience, which I agree with. Trump doesn’t have the experience that the younger Bush had when he was president. Trump has no experience involving us in two wars where we had no business. No experience putting the country in a recession — the worst since the Great Depression. No experience working with a do-nothing Congress controlled by Wall Street, corporations and fat cats with large political contributions. No experience with nepotism, providing relatives and friends with great jobs. Enough said.
