Trump Isn’t A White Nationalist; He’s An Enterprising Type; He’s An Extraverted Sensing Thinking Perceiving Type
The latest thing for some Democrats to throw against the wall to see if they can bring down Trump, deprive him of a second term, is that he is a White Nationalist.
Many Democrats rightly know that if a much better than usual number of Black votes go to Trump, it means they lose the 2020 Presidential Election.
So, in part, their charge that he is a White Nationalist comes from political expediency. They need to keep Black voters in line, voting Democratic.
But, I think, those who genuinely think he is a White Nationalist – don’t understand Trump.
He is a doer, not a word smith. He doesn’t have the gift of words, as say, a J.F.K. His type – Extraverted Sensing Thinking Perceiving Type often says things without considering the impact of his words on others. He doesn’t spend the time, say as journalist would, on getting his words just right.
If you want a President whose words will inspire you, find an intuitive type; Trump is a doer, not a poet.
The Strength of ESTP’s is to figure out practical ways to get things done.
If you want a leader who puts a lot of weight on how others feel and is good at empathizing with others, you should look for a dominant feeling type as President.
So I think, in part, the attribution of White Nationalist comes from the unartful way Trump has said things concerning illegal immigration.
Businessman Trump’s primary value is not White Supremacy, but Achievement, Economic Rewards, Prestige.
These are the values of what John L. Holland would call an Enterprising Type. Some Democrats, I think, are deliberately mistaking this for White Nationalism, for political advantage – to make sure they retain their attraction for the Black voters they desperately need to win elections. What greater way to discourage Black voters from drifting away from the Democratic Party than labeling Trump a White Nationalist.
When Businessman Trump says he wants to Make America Great Again – he doesn’t mean make America White again – he means to make America No. 1 in the World Economically Again.
Many Americans voted for Trump because America was slipping as an Economic Power, our manufacturing was going overseas, trade policies were advantaging other countries at the expense of our own, and many Americans thought the standard of living of their children would not be as good as in years past.
Trump brought manufacturing back to the U.S. He has won praise from Chuck Schumer for his China policy. And has made many Americans feel hopeful that the slide into Economic decline has been stopped by the Businessman President.
How do the Democrats criticize Trump with that Economic Record? They can’t dispute Trump’s Winning Economic Policies – so they throw, yet another thing against the Wall – Trump is a White Nationalist.
Trump the Businessman, doesn’t want the immigration floodgates open – with up to a million illegal immigrants crossing our border each year - that will put pressure on our resources – our schools, our hospitals, our social safety net. He wants immigration that will contribute to our bottom line. Trump wants to overhaul the immigration system. He wants doctors, nurses, engineers, computer programmers – people with skills America needs – to win those prized immigration spots.
Trump’s goal is to give America the economic edge in the world. He couldn’t care less if those doctors, nurses, engineers, computer programmers were pink, purple or polka-dotted – as long as they contribute to making America a Number 1 Economic Power in the world.
You may not like the Economic yardstick Trump uses to measure things, to value things, but, I think, you don’t understand his Extraverted Sensing Thinking Perceiving Type, his Enterprising Type, if you think his goal is to make America White again. He’s a Businessman President, not a White Nationalist.
I-It relating is totally subjective. The I looks at everything in relation to their self. Their desires and concerns are a barrier to real meeting. There is contrivance and hypocrisy. Imposition characterizes I-It Relating as the I tries to impose their views, their wants on the other.
