Below is my latest Op-Ed.

Trump should allow VP Pence to tweet on his behalf, it may actually result in a huge election win this November.
Yesterday, Mary and I spent some time with a couple who we see a few times each year. During our time together, we dove into a chat about the Trump presidency.
The wife, who works on Wall Street for a major bank, said her high-wealth clients hate the Trump presidency despite the booming economy.
When I asked why, she was very clear with her answer. “He’s erratic.”
I probed a bit deeper, trying to defend Trump’s behavior by pawning it off as showmanship that is all about fueling his desire for headlines. I said, “When it really comes down to it, he’s got the economy humming, and it should only get better, your clients stand to make even more money than they have now, no?”
She went on to explain that people of wealth, especially those who operate businesses, appreciate the booming economy but sit on eggshells because they fear Trump’s erratic, unpredictable behavior could result in a free-fall at any given time.
I asked if any of these people voted for him the first time. She said, “Some did, yes.”
When I went on to say that they must know by now that his behavior is more bark than it is bite, she agreed to a degree, but remarked about how the tweets are what concern people the most.
I asked, “If your clients saw Trump tweet more about what was being done to spark more economic growth and to lower costs for things like healthcare, etc, would they be more comfortable with the President?”
She responded, “I think they could be, although it may be too late. But for as long as he continues on with the fake news and Mueller stuff, they have little trust in him and therefore count the days until he is gone knowing that the economy will survive without him.”
Today, not more than 12-hours after my conversation, Trump tweeted 5 times about the FISA documents and Russia collusion case, and how his campaign was illegally spied on. In doing so, he used more of the same ole’ terms he’s used for years, like Crooked Hillary.
I’m a supporter of the president, but this stuff has gotten so old, and I say that knowing that whether he did or did not stop tweeting about this nonsense on a daily basis, he would keep his base in tact. It’s the other people I am worried about. I fear they won’t show up in November.
VP Pence tweeted Sunday about jobs and wages. This is the sort of thing that Trump should be tweeting day in and day out, for it would give the media no choice but to cover the truth, meaning, they’d have to reveal Trump’s successes. If Trump did regularly what Pence did this morning, it would likely calm the nerves of people who believe the president is erratic. But it’s impossible, maybe I am trying to put a square into a circle.
Perhaps you can talk to someone at the NSA and get Trump’s Twitter password, and thereafter take over the job of tweeting from the WH about what’s going on in America. Just an idea Mr VP, take it as you may.
