President Trump’s performance from the Oval Office on Tuesday was OK to good. It wasn’t great – it wasn’t Reganesque. Some might say he looked uncomfortable and wooden.
But that’s not Trump’s fault. This isn’t what he does. What he does well is play to the people.
The public is used to the boisterous Trump – animated, adlibbing at rallies and looking at home. Despite having years of experience as star of the Apprentice, he did not appear at ease in front of the lone camera.
However, he looked sincere, because he is sincere. For him, and us who support him, this has nothing at all to do with politics. This is about safety, security, fairness and the rule of law. Easily his best line of the night: “Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. But then why do politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes? They don’t do it because they hate the people on the outside — they do it because they love the people on the inside.”
