MEMO TO PRESIDENT-ELECT: URGENT!

By Patrick J. Buchanan

“In victory, magnanimity!” said Winston Churchill.
Donald Trump should be magnanimous and gracious toward those whom he defeated this week, but his first duty is to keep faith with those who put their faith in him.

The protests, riots and violence that have attended his triumph in city after city should only serve to steel his resolve.

As for promptings that he “reach out” and “reassure” those upset by his victory, and trim or temper his agenda to pacify them, Trump should reject the poisoned chalice. This is the same old con.

Trump should take as models the Democrats FDR and LBJ.

Franklin Roosevelt, who had savaged Herbert Hoover as a big spender, launched his own New Deal in his first 100 days.

History now hails his initiative and resolve.

Lyndon Johnson exploited his landslide over Barry Goldwater in 1964 to erect his Great Society in 1965: the Voting Rights Act, Medicare and Medicaid. He compromised on nothing, and got it all…

  1. I hope Pat Buchanan’s memo gets to the president elect… subito!
    Perhaps one of DJT’s most important appointments will be ambassador to the Holy See. I am not sure when the current ambassador’s term ends, but I think someone like Newt Gingrich might be a good choice. The Trump administration should put full pressure on PF to back off on his liberal, secular agenda.

    • Anthony, I’d have reservations, big ones, about Gingrich. He’s a discredited figure with three different wives, only one of which is the real one.

      Yes, he’d get a red carpet reception at the new and “improved” Motel 6 in sunny Nuovo Roma since he’d be a poster boy for the “Abolish the Sixth Commandment” brigades.

      But, politically, ever since he caved into Clinton in ’96 on the budget deal, he’s been toast.

      I can only see the former “Viva Newt” being useful were The Donald to announce a NASA mission to Andromeda.

      • Good points. I guess I was thinking we need someone like a bulldog for the role of Ambassador to the Holy See.

        • My choice? Pat Buchanan.

          But he’d go nuts over there. And it would not be charitable to deprive him and his wife of the Latin Mass.

          But if there is anybody who could create some sensational headlines it’s ol’ Battlin’ Pat….
