The man outranking the others having the trump card

In a game of cards, a trump is a playing card which belongs to the suit which has been chosen as trumps, trumps being the suit which is chosen to have the highest value in one particular game, outranking all other suits for the duration of a hand. It never can be known how long the game can be played.

Today the United States of America may also have a player of cards who likes to make a lot of noise, and thinking he has all the best cards of the game in his hands.

President Trump literally trumpets and tweets and rants and raves. The word “trump” according to the dictionary is to

“outrank or defeat someone or something, often in a highly public way.”

Hence the “trump” card is the card that defeats all others. Therefore the present president of the United States probably thinks  he gets the better of (an adversary or competitor, for example) by using a crucial, often hidden resource.

It can also mean to

“declare as in a fanfare”

Doesn’t President TRUMP act exactly according to these meanings?!

The name “Donald” means “world ruler” and may remind people of the king of Scotland (1093–94; 1094–97) or may let us think of Godfrey Macdonald, hereditary chief of the Scottish Clan Donald and the treacherous slaughter of members of that clan of Glencoe by soldiers under Archibald Campbell, 10th earl of Argyll. Today we may find lots of people speaking about “The Donald”, 45th President of the United States of America, Donald Trump! And so we have a world ruler who is with great noise and fanfare publicly trying to outrank or defeat his opponents. And yet despite all this (perhaps as with many verbal bullies) his bark is much worse than his bite.

More than once the last few weeks he bluffed that he would learn the other states a good lesson that America is the greatest nation of all. More than once he boasted his nation had all the capacity to bring others to silence and he said he got his finger ready to push in the Red Button. Luckily he called off attacks on Iran sending very mixed signals to the regime. But his bragging is not as innocent or benign as some might think.
