Way back when, Donald Trump was considered here. Much has changed since then. It is time to reconsider.
One aspect of an alpha is that he is willing to take on all comers. This is illustrated by the extremes of a fella with a drink shield compared to one who is casually man spreading, with a come on, I am ready for anything posture. Trump absolutely passes this test. A recent example is when he shot missiles into Syria in retaliation for the use of chemical weapons. The MSM’s knee jerk response was to suggest that this was a Wag the Dog ploy; from the movie where a President starts a war to distract from a scandal. In this case, the scandal was supposed to be the Russian Collusion probe. The MSM, being dense like they are, did not notice that Trump had been tweeting about the Collusion probe for weeks beforehand; almost taunting its members. Essentially Trump has been in a man spreading posture waiting to handle all comers.
Another aspect of an alpha is that he will stand up for himself (and in this case the USA). By disposing of the TPP, challenging China on trade issues, working to secure the border, restricting entry into the country, etc. he has been doing just that. Bullies like North Korea and Iran are feeling the pressure. Recently Trump stated that if he senses that North Korea is dicking around at the upcoming summit, he will walk out. People believe him. Statements like that have been made in the past by others, but nobody has ever believed it. Remember when Bill Clinton went chasing after Arafat begging him to restart negotiations? Well, Trump seems to be the opposite of that.
There are lots of men out there who are willing to get behind an alpha male who seems to have their interests in mind. Furthermore, there are women out there who are enamored by these alpha characteristics. How this will all play out during the rest of the term and in the next election is to be determined.
