Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, I have said that when he did something right, I would say so.At the World Economic Forum Friday, Trump gave a good speech that was forthright, intelligent and conciliatory, embracing the world rather than condemning it. The address was extremely well received here at the World Economic Forum by both American business leaders and even non-American attendees, who are overwhelmingly skeptical of Trump overall.Of course, the problem with Trump is that, by tomorrow morning, he might veer off in an entirely different direction.Whatever you think of the policies, the larger point is that Trump the conventional Republican is working within the American system rather than trying to destroy it.It is also possible that Donald Trump decided, for now, to side with his moderate advisers.So when Trump behaves better, as he did here Friday, everyone breathes a sigh of relief.I do believe that, given the stakes, America and the world are better off for these moments – however fleeting – when he behaves more like a normal president.
