Trump Won the Debate

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

Despite the moderators siding with Clinton against Trump, Trump won the debate by a wide margin. Clinton, as usual, came across as scripted and lifeless. Her holier than thou act fell flat and Trump did a terrific job of neutralizing it under very difficult circumstances for him.

If Trump can do to our enemies abroad what he has done to the Clintons, he will accomplish tremendous good for our nation, and in a short time at minimal expense, as he is fond of saying, "Ahead of schedule and under budget."

Now, Trump has to maintain his momentum. He will have put the fear of god in republicans and inspired awe in them at how he has contained and defeated Clinton, the media and republican establishment figures who all and together opposed him.

Frankly, I am stunned at how well he has managed his political crisis and turned his fortunes around.

Now, I hope he shines a spotlight on Clinton's treasonous desire to open our borders, one point he could have laid more emphasis on in the context of her speeches to international bodies.
