Could a President Trump Have Prevented the Civil War?

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/siteupload/2015/08/trump-stump.jpeg

President Trump will bring a new era in politics:  The perspective and skills of a businessman who sees issues in economics terms.  What if Donald Trump had been Abraham Lincoln?  How would he have handled the freeing of the slaves?  Would he go to war, as did Mr. Lincoln?  We think not.

We can rightly assume an 1860’s Donald Trump would be every bit as opposed to slavery and eager as Mr. Lincoln to put an end to it.  He would know, as did many, the cotton gin, and other new technologies were making slavery uneconomic.  The real key to “king cotton” was all the little fingers of black children pulling cotton linters from seeds to free fibers.  Each bale came at the price of thousands of hours of child labor and no education. It was unconscionable.

President Trump would call a meeting of slave state Governors, broach the issue and listen.  His meeting with the Republican leaders who dislike him demonstrated the first step in the Trump method is listening.  He collects information that he will analyze to craft solutions with high chances of success.

Just before the Civil War we had four million slaves, each valued at $800 for a $3.2 billion total.

  3. I agree if he had been president the Civil war would not have happened. He would have found some way to appease both sides.

  4. I'd take a Trump over a Lincoln any day. One can't be bought and the other one was.

    Trump would have proposed a slave buyout and gotten Congress to legislate it to law. Likely only some of the actual slave holders would have opposed it along with some northerners who would not want the labor competition.
