Trump's Mexico trip: ‘Hasty’ or ‘nimble’?

"Hastily."  That's a strong word, is it not?  If one does something "hastily," it means one did it with excessive speed, hurriedly, carelessly.

It thus struck me, at least at first, as somewhat odd that Fox News twice in its article about Donald Trump's meeting with Mexican president Nieto chose that word to describe his quickly made and executed plans for that meeting.

Careless?  In what way?  To me – especially after seeing the two men standing together at the press conference following their surprisingly lengthy meeting the word that came to mind was brilliant.  Or, if the fact that the meeting was planned and executed quickly, without the months of planning such visits usually require, with dozens of front men pre-arranging every conceivable detail to avoid risk or (worse to a politician), embarrassment, how about this word: nimble.

That Fox News of all media sources chose such a word using it twice for emphasis seems to demonstrate once again how frightened the ruling class has become.  What a threat Trump is seen to be to their hold on power.

There is a war going on, friends – the outcome of which will affect each of our lives.

If Trump can win that war against the elites of both parties and their media abettors, he will have proven himself to be more than nimble.  He will have prove himself a leader whom all who want to hold back America's return to greatness will have to reckon with.
