Man of the year

Like him or loathe him there has never been a president like him. Right from the start, he was up against incredible odds including an opposition willing to cheat at the ballot box yet he still triumphed. Once elected he had to fight to be allowed to do his job. He was slowed down and held up repeatedly by legal warfare but he persisted. Members of his own party continued to try to ankle tap and undermine him but he refused to give up. The opposition tried to impeach him and threw pity parties in the streets but he kept going. Despite all the odds he still got things done and kept his promises. I have never seen another President quite like Donald Trump.

It?s that time of the year when media outlets write up the people and trends who defined the year while ignoring the man who redefined it.

2017 was the year that the United States of America got up off its knees. It was the year that we stopped following the world and started leading it. It was the year that our booming economy accomplished the impossible. It was the year that we became a great nation again.

And one man is responsible for that.

There were many large hotels, the most prominent of which was a large Victorian edifice, ?The Grand? which overlooked the seafront from its splendid position on the cliff.
