So how does one earn the approval of the American people? And why has the number risen so dramatically in recent months?

Easy answer. Like in Europe, the % of the population who is skeptical about global alliances is rising; hence, leaders who are focused first on the best interests of their own nation, rather than some nebulous global alliance or uber-government, are seen as respectable, even though their methods of governance may not be.

Strong. Ambitious. Morally ambiguous. Enemy of the press. Remind you of anyone else?

Hilary Clinton, but I digress.

How about Putin? The Russian president exemplifies everything that Trump is trying to accomplish. He’s a strong leader who puts his own nation first with little respect for moral objections, free speech, or minority rights.

Let’s be serious now. No rights have been infringed upon since Trump has become President.

By the end of Trump’s term, voters may look favorably upon strong, morally questionable leaders such as Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong Un, and Moammar Ghadafi (all leaders that Trump has complimented). As Trump himself has said “Hats off to the Russians” — the American people may soon agree.

You’re being intentionally absurd, now.
