Donald Trump

Donald Trump Is Just A Millennial

I had a thought: Donald Trump is basically a millennial. So, if that’s the case, why do millennials hate Donald Trump so much?

That’s not to say that I’m the biggest fan of the dude, but it does seem that people love to hate him. While his agenda is clearly polarizing, why do so many young people still allow him to play such a large part in their day-to-day lives?

Yes, he is the President of the United States. Arguably, that’s the most important position in the world.

However, since he has taken office, my life has not changed much at all. If anything, it has gotten better for other reasons. My business is on the rise, my marriage couldn’t be better, my health is fantastic and my personal relationships with both friends and family are at peace. But, Trump has had nothing to do with any of those things.

I cannot speak for everyone here. I am certain that many people have been severely affected by him, but this article is not about that. Rather, I wanted to draw some parallels that my wife and I noticed between Trump and my generation — the millennials.

Here are a few of those aforementioned traits and qualities. Take a look, and you tell me if Trump and millennials are in line.

Obsession with social media
Fragile ego
Desire to wear the same clothes every day
A large sense of both, achievement and entitlement
Loose morals about marriage
Deep obsession with their hair

The list could go on from here…

But the list doesn’t need to go on to make a simple point: Trump is no different than you and me. He sits on the toilet the same way you do.

Instead of all of us focusing on his traits and qualities, we should look to see what we can do to build a better world. With that focus, I think we would all be better off.

If you like him, good. If you dislike him, then that’s also good. This is America and you will have a chance to make your voice heard in 2020.

But until that time, stop focusing on all the negative he has done. That focus helps no one, and it won’t accomplish anything. Look inwardly, and focus on what you can do to help.

I am no saint. Therefore, I will make a concerted effort to be a better person. The first step of that effort is to stop focusing on the negatives.

I hope you’ll join me.
