Carriering Himself Well

1 12 2016


One of the reasons I think Trump swung the Carrier deal now, even before he actually becomes President, is that he wants to act like he’s President before he actually becomes President.

The more adapted people get to thinking of him as President before it is legally the case, the more any antics with the recount or the formal meeting of the Electoral College will come off as petty and quixotic, and therefore, not happen.  To put it another way, by mentally ensconsing himself as President right now, Trump is daring anyone who wants to steal the election from him with “finding” votes in potential recounts or interfering with the EC to do it, thereby deterring it.

By acting as President, Donald Trump counters the attempt to undercut his legitimacy.
