Lantern Timeglass Journal
At a North Carolina rally, covered live on TV by CNN, Donald Trump just gave the best speech he has ever given. He even humbled himself slightly – admits he sometimes says wrong things. This is the first time he has sounded presidential. This was the speech he should have given to launch his campaign or given at the RNC. It is way overdue. Is it too late? I’ll watch the polls.
All that coverage of the big shakeup and changes in his campaign, claims that he is unwilling to change, turns out to be somewhat wrong. Trump is still Trump, but something has changed. Sounds like he means it this time. Sounds convincing. What caused it? Maybe the national security briefing yesterday was an eye-opening experience for him, and he decided to get serious.
If he keeps this up, then he could win back my vote.
