Donald Trump not a slave to ideology

Sir: This is probably the first time in American history that a front-runner for presidency in a major political party is not subscribing to core tents of his party. For where many and others have failed, Donald Trump a man who needs no introduction has triumphed.

Trump have demonstrated with his winning streak in the Republican Party primaries that being a politician can now become a deterrent, if not an obstacle to securing and winning presidential candidacy in the Republican party. He made being an outsider and unconventional methodology of politicking – attractive and acceptable, especially amongst the base of his party.

Many might be saying that condition and situation made him, because the people are tired of politicians and they want something new and different. They may also say that he is exploiting the situation to his own greatest benefit. But the whole truth was that Donald Trump has been able to open the voters’ eyes and point to them to the supposedly right direction with him as the benefactor.

It will be premature to say whether America is ready for a president who is a dealmaker but from what we have seen so far, there is no doubt that Trump is bulldozing his way into the hearts of a sizeable number of Americans. Only time will tell.
