Pre-Election Merriment with Trump and Jeb
My husband’s laughter spurred me to buy the donaldjtrump.bz domain in 2016. It was a Christmas present to me.
My Christmas tree decorated, I was loving the presidential debates. Politics consumed the holiday news cycle with Bernie and Hillary and the eight running Republican hopefuls, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Chris Christie, Carly Florina, and Rand Paul.
Sudden merriment struck as we gazed at the TV and heard the news Trump had bought the jebbush.com domain and redirected it to Trump’s website.
When you type jebbush.com into the browser, up pops donaldjtrump.com. My husband thought Trump a clever one.
So, while Darrell was mid laughter about the Jeb-Trump news, I bought the domain DonaldJTrump.bz. I thought I would do as The Donald does.
Jeb Bush published his campaign news on Jeb2016.com, a website frozen in time. Evidently Jeb wished to distance himself from his Busch political heritage, and left his own name-dot com up for sale on the World Wide Web.
At that time, Donald Trump was painfully aware of not owning his name dot com because donaldtrump.com was owned by a social e-zine that published news on the famous New Yorker. Out of necessity, Trump launched donaldjtrump.com and emphasized the “j” in his name to his loyal audience who wanted to follow him online. Today, he owns both.
Those were fun memories from a rugged political campaign.
Post Election and New POTUS
Donald John Trump is now President Of The United States. Although not an early supporter, I chose to jump on the Trump Express. I will hold on for dear life because I know this train will derail on occasion and make unplanned stops.
Still, I believe President Trump is a patriot who will do his best to lead our nation.
I welcome debate and insight
As I grow the website, I hope to applaud the President’s accomplishments, note opposing views, post archived political clippings and cartoons, and include Civics 101.
UPDATE: Today, Donald Trump owns both donaldtrump.com and donaldjtrump.com. No doubt the purchase of donaldtrump.com was high dollar. Type donaldtrump.com into the search bar, and it reverts to donaldjtrump.com. The J is for John, my father’s name.
Today, jebbush.com is a rabbit hole with links to articles such as, “Why Did Bush Drop Out,” “Politics,” etc.
