Trump frustrates his Georgian friend2011-05-18 14:29
Donald Trump - Georgia's greatest hope - has decided not to tackle politics. Over the past few months it has been rumored that he plans to run in 2012 presidential election. Besides, Trump's statement sounded like a guarantee of his victory. Yet, he has made a "tough" decision forsaking the struggle for presidency. Certainly it's bad news for Tbilisi that set great hopes on Trump. They thought "their" politician would climb up the American Olympus. Now it turns out, the plans have changed.
Trump's refusal to run in elections is Georgia's second flop in America, the supporting side. At first John McCain, a politician that is literally in love with Georgia, lost the presidential race in the States. If he had won, it would have been obvious: Sakartvelo would see abundant money flows and nobody would have objected to the "inner sanctum" of army upgrade.
Misha Saakashvili was well aware of all that. That is why he said this: "Washington starts losing political idealists". These are politicians that must support Georgia without ever trying to grasp precarious details of Georgia's methods of governance. "The beacon of democracy" and nothing else. Pity for Tbilisi: McCain, an idealist well-advanced in years, lost the elections. Barack Obama's support for Georgia is purely inertial. As for his administration - they are openly impudent: Hillary Clinton publicly cast doubts on the quality of Georgian democracy, and the Department of State she is in charge with writes obscene reports criticizing Tbilisi.
Yet, a ray of hope appeared on this joyless background. Donald Trump for whom support for Georgia is important, made a pass at the Oval Room. "I am convinced that I would have won the primaries and then pan-American elections", - he told assessing his chances in the presidential race.
Nothing to add - a real American, self-assured beyond limits. However, we don't know if he could overdo Obama without difficulty. Yet, he won't do that. Donald Trump is and has been a construction tycoon. He did politics for a couple of months and made a conclusion that sounds disastrous for Georgians: no, it's not my cup of tea. "I have spent several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half-heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector". - the US billionaire sums up.
