President Trump is on track to win his third bid for the White House—yes, you read that right, his third. Time Magazine reports that Trump has never been better positioned to win a presidential election than he is at this moment. He’s leading in every single swing state and gaining momentum, despite being targeted by sham political show trials. This just goes to show that the American people are clued into what the uni-party regime is really trying to do. These politicized trials aren’t about “justice.” They’re about meddling in yet another US election and trying to take down the one guy who could outplay Biden in a fair matchup, once again.

Time Magazine:

Six months from the 2024 presidential election, Trump is better positioned to win the White House than at any point in either of his previous campaigns. He leads Joe Biden by slim margins in most polls, including in several of the seven swing states likely to determine the outcome.

Assuming President Trump continues to build on this momentum and takes back the White House, what would his next term look like? That’s exactly what Time reporter Eric Cortellessa wanted to know. So he headed to Florida to meet with Trump and asked that very question. The cover of Time Magazine really says it all.

Trump’s response was bold but not surprising, considering the political and personal attacks he’s endured since 2016. He made it crystal clear: if reelected, the days of Mr. Nice Guy are over. The Time Magazine article delves into what this could mean for Trump and America:

Donald Trump thinks he’s identified a crucial mistake of his first term: He was too nice.

We’ve been talking for more than an hour on April 12 at his fever-dream palace in Palm Beach. Aides lurk around the perimeter of a gilded dining room overlooking the manicured lawn. When one nudges me to wrap up the interview, I bring up the many former Cabinet officials who refuse to endorse Trump this time. Some have publicly warned that he poses a danger to the Republic. Why should voters trust you, I ask, when some of the people who observed you most closely do not?

As always, Trump punches back, denigrating his former top advisers. But beneath the typical torrent of invective, there is a larger lesson he has taken away. “I let them quit because I have a heart. I don’t want to embarrass anybody,” Trump says. “I don’t think I’ll do that again. From now on, I’ll fire.”

Trump’s vision for America in 2025 is stoic, strong, and unyielding. He is determined to reverse the damage Biden has done, opting for the quickest and most direct way possible. And anyone who stands in his way will be dealt with swiftly. This is the theme of his “No More Mr. Nice Guy” agenda, and it’s a clear warning to every RINO and Deep State stooge out there. The Time article elaborates:

To carry out a deportation operation designed to remove more than 11 million people from the country, Trump told me, he would be willing to build migrant detention camps and deploy the U.S. military, both at the border and inland. He would let red states monitor women’s pregnancies and prosecute those who violate abortion bans. He would, at his personal discretion, withhold funds appropriated by Congress, according to top advisers. He would be willing to fire a U.S. Attorney who doesn’t carry out his order to prosecute someone, breaking with a tradition of independent law enforcement that dates from America’s founding. He is weighing pardons for every one of his supporters accused of attacking the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, more than 800 of whom have pleaded guilty or been convicted by a jury. He might not come to the aid of an attacked ally in Europe or Asia if he felt that country wasn’t paying enough for its own defense.

Back in 2016, the GOP establishment was wounded but still wielded considerable power. Over the years, that power has dwindled. While there’s still a long way to go to completely oust all the RINOs, their “army” has been whittled down from a formidable force to a small band of guerrilla insurgents. The Time article continues:

Trump remains the same guy, with the same goals and grievances. But in person, if anything, he appears more assertive and confident. “When I first got to Washington, I knew very few people,” he says. “I had to rely on people.” Now he is in charge. The arranged marriage with the timorous Republican Party stalwarts is over; the old guard is vanquished, and the people who remain are his people. Trump would enter a second term backed by a slew of policy shops staffed by loyalists who have drawn up detailed plans in service of his agenda, which would concentrate the powers of the state in the hands of a man whose appetite for power appears all but insatiable. “I don’t think it’s a big mystery what his agenda would be,” says his close adviser Kellyanne Conway. “But I think people will be surprised at the alacrity with which he will take action.”

One key piece of the “No More Mr. Nice Guy” puzzle is the non-violent political prisoners of January 6, whom Trump has vowed to pardon, which is exactly what his base wants to hear after the Biden regime has turned America into a version of North Korea, Russia, and Iran, complete with unjust tyranny, political prisoners, and tyrannical censorship. Time Magazine goes on:

The spectacle picks up where his first term left off. The events of Jan. 6, during which a pro-Trump mob attacked the center of American democracy in an effort to subvert the peaceful transfer of power, was a profound stain on his legacy. Trump has sought to recast an insurrectionist riot as an act of patriotism. “I call them the J-6 patriots,” he says. When I ask whether he would consider pardoning every one of them, he says, “Yes, absolutely.” As Trump faces dozens of felony charges, including for election interference, conspiracy to defraud the United States, willful retention of national-security secrets, and falsifying business records to conceal hush-money payments, he has tried to turn legal peril into a badge of honor.

In a second term, Trump’s influence on American democracy would extend far beyond pardoning powers. Allies are laying the groundwork to restructure the presidency in line with a doctrine called the unitary executive theory, which holds that many of the constraints imposed on the White House by legislators and the courts should be swept away in favor of a more powerful Commander in Chief.

And speaking of the weaponization of the DOJ, President Trump’s primary focus would be to bring actual “justice” back to the Department of Justice. However, when it comes to Biden, Trump shows a hint of his “Mr. Nice Guy” persona, stating he wouldn’t want to hurt him, mainly out of respect for the presidency itself. That’s a commendable thought. Yet, given the actions of these left-wing Marxists, they deserve no empathy—ever. The Time piece goes on:

Nowhere would that power be more momentous than at the Department of Justice. Since the nation’s earliest days, Presidents have generally kept a respectful distance from Senate-confirmed law-enforcement officials to avoid exploiting for personal ends their enormous ability to curtail Americans’ freedoms. But Trump, burned in his first term by multiple investigations directed by his own appointees, is ever more vocal about imposing his will directly on the department and its far-flung investigators and prosecutors.

In our Mar-a-Lago interview, Trump says he might fire U.S. Attorneys who refuse his orders to prosecute someone: “It would depend on the situation.” He’s told supporters he would seek retribution against his enemies in a second term. Would that include Fani Willis, the Atlanta-area district attorney who charged him with election interference, or Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan DA in the Stormy Daniels case, who Trump has previously said should be prosecuted? Trump demurs but offers no promises. “No, I don’t want to do that,” he says, before adding, “We’re gonna look at a lot of things. What they’ve done is a terrible thing.”

Trump has also vowed to appoint a “real special prosecutor” to go after Biden. “I wouldn’t want to hurt Biden,” he tells me. “I have too much respect for the office.” Seconds later, though, he suggests Biden’s fate may be tied to an upcoming Supreme Court ruling on whether Presidents can face criminal prosecution for acts committed in office. “If they said that a President doesn’t get immunity,” says Trump, “then Biden, I am sure, will be prosecuted for all of his crimes.” (Biden has not been charged with any, and a House Republican effort to impeach him has failed to unearth evidence of any crimes or misdemeanors, high or low.)

And of course, President Trump will remain laser-focused on the issue now on every American’s mind: Biden’s invasion at the US border. The bad news is that our country is facing down an invasion by criminal illegals. The good news is that we all know President Trump can handle it—and quickly. We’ve seen him take decisive action before and run the border like a fine-oiled machine. The Time piece elaborates further:

Trump’s radical designs for presidential power would be felt throughout the country. A main focus is the southern border. Trump says he plans to sign orders to reinstall many of the same policies from his first term, such as the Remain in Mexico program, which requires that non-Mexican asylum seekers be sent south of the border until their court dates, and Title 42, which allows border officials to expel migrants without letting them apply for asylum. Advisers say he plans to cite record border crossings and fentanyl- and child-trafficking as justification for reimposing the emergency measures. He would direct federal funding to resume construction of the border wall, likely by allocating money from the military budget without congressional approval. The capstone of this program, advisers say, would be a massive deportation operation that would target millions of people. Trump made similar pledges in his first term, but says he plans to be more aggressive in a second. “People need to be deported,” says Tom Homan, a top Trump adviser and former acting head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “No one should be off the table.”

For an operation of that scale, Trump says he would rely mostly on the National Guard to round up and remove undocumented migrants throughout the country. “If they weren’t able to, then I’d use [other parts of] the military,” he says. When I ask if that means he would override the Posse Comitatus Act—an 1878 law that prohibits the use of military force on civilians—Trump seems unmoved by the weight of the statute. “Well, these aren’t civilians,” he says. “These are people that aren’t legally in our country.” He would also seek help from local police and says he would deny funding for jurisdictions that decline to adopt his policies. “There’s a possibility that some won’t want to participate,” Trump says, “and they won’t partake in the riches.”

Much of what Trump plans to do in his next term is an extension of his previous policies, only this time they’ll be executed with more boldness, intensity, and zero mercy. The Time Magazine piece goes on:

Presidents typically have a narrow window to pass major legislation. Trump’s team is eyeing two bills to kick off a second term: a border-security and immigration package, and an extension of his 2017 tax cuts. Many of the latter’s provisions expire early in 2025: the tax cuts on individual income brackets, 100% business expensing, the doubling of the estate-tax deduction. Trump is planning to intensify his protectionist agenda, telling me he’s considering a tariff of more than 10% on all imports, and perhaps even a 100% tariff on some Chinese goods. Trump says the tariffs will liberate the U.S. economy from being at the mercy of foreign manufacturing and spur an industrial renaissance in the U.S. When I point out that independent analysts estimate Trump’s first term tariffs on thousands of products, including steel and aluminum, solar panels, and washing machines, may have cost the U.S. $316 billion and more than 300,000 jobs, by one account, he dismisses these experts out of hand. His advisers argue that the average yearly inflation rate in his first term—under 2%—is evidence that his tariffs won’t raise prices.

Time Magazine also included an infographic of what Trump’s “political world” will look like. His inner circle will be populated with loyalists, reinforcing his agenda with a tight-knit team of staunch supporters.

Time Magazine also published a full transcript of the interview with Trump, which you can read here.

Let’s face it, this country has veered so far off course that it will take more than four years and one man to set things right. But what President Trump is trying to do is lay the foundation for the long haul. His “No More Mr. Nice Guy” approach is the tough love needed to counteract the damage done by radical left-wing Marxists who want to dismantle America from within. The logic here is simple: you can’t “rebuild” or “reset” a country that’s thriving and strong. On the other hand, President Trump’s goal is to Make America Great Again, drawing on the legacy of our founding fathers and the sacrifices of countless Americans who have fought, struggled, and given their lives to build a nation that lives up to its promise.
