The dots leading to Donald Trump becoming President started long before he announced he was running for the office in June 2015. In fact we could say his actual journey started in Late August 2008, although he had no idea at the time as he was not directly involved.
According to Wikipedia, Donald Trump started to explore running for President as far back as 1988, but it was more about testing the water way back then. He was mostly focused on running his business and politics was second and for the most part not even on the back burner. The chain of events or as we prefer to say the dots leading to him getting elected President started much closer to Russia than Washington.
During the 2008 Presidential election, on August 29 Alaska Governor Sarah Palin became John McCain’s running mate. Ultimately they lost the election to Barack Obama who inherited a country entering a depression. That depression was for the most part blamed on lack of regulation allowing more than a few self-serving people to mess up the financial market. That resulted in President Obama needing to take the country to the left by adding more regulations to sort things out and recover the economy.
However Sara Palin was still a household name and became involved in a far right movement known as the Tea party. In the 2010 elections the Tea party managed to get several politicians elected into the House of Representatives and the Senate. That had the result of moving the Republican party much more to the right, and that was the start of the dysfunctional government as the left and the right no longer had common ground to work together.
This had the result of bills not getting passed and making Americans angry. That eventually lead to the 2012 election and that saw even more right movement of the Republican party causing a significant gap between what was workable common ground. The elected Tea party Representatives and Senators even let the government shut down and did not care about the political fallout. For many of them, they would take political death over moving to the left. In a way it made them look like political suicide bombers. So the 2012 elections could be described as a hammer with the hopes of getting government unstuck.
This made Americans even more angry, and the 2014 elections could be described as a bigger hammer trying to unstuck the dysfunctional government. Needless to say that did not work either.
So enter the 2016 elections and Americans switched from using a hammer to using explosives, and the explosive of choice was Donald Trump. What made him attractive was he was nothing at all like any candidate before. He called things as he saw them, and expressed what he saw without any political correctness. So in other words he actually said what people were thinking, and that connected. Political correctness occurs someplace between the mind and the mouth, and Donald would have none of that.
So now that the explosives have been selected, they will be setup in Washington in the days prior to January 20, 2017. Those explosives will be set off the moment Donald Trump says the following words that will be administered by the Chief Justice of the US Supreme court at high noon January 20.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
