Trump’s extraordinary three passions

President Trump’s supporters and detractors agree on something: He is an extraordinary human. In spite of intense pressure to stop providing his personal thoughts and feelings to a universal audience, he maintains his license to do so. He’s shown the world that he can scoot by limits, barriers and obstacles.

In the article, Michael Scherer states: …tastemakers and intellectuals have dismissed him as a vulgarian and carnival barker, a showman with big flash and little substance. But what those critics never understood was their disdain gave him strength. You see, Trump has been accumulating passion over his lifetime. By my definition, passion is either a powerful, barely controllable feeling that can overtake a person at times, or a delicate, intuitive sense much like an artisan has for his/her craft.
