In a conspicuous departure from the behavior commonly expected from the nation’s top leader, President Donald Trump has used his pulpit, platform and position responsibly. He has been saying what has long needed to be said. Moreover, he has conveyed what many Americans have felt but haven’t had a voice to say to a national audience. His presidency so far has been one of keeping promises to the American people.
When he gave a press conference last week and utterly lambasted the mainstream media (MSM), calling them out on their dishonesty and willful misreporting, it was the exact medicine they needed to swallow and it was more than obvious they weren’t ready for it. Refreshingly, Trump showed he is definitely not one to be underestimated.
Blinded by being on the left, the MSM jumps at any chance to delegitimize Trump, put him down, deliberately misreport on him and find the slightest thing they can to cast him in a negative light, all while ignoring the facts. Which is why Trump’s war with the MSM is a war that desperately needed to be waged – and it’s obviously clear that he’s winning.
In his speech to Congress last night he addressed issues that are important to most Americans like repealing Obamacare and providing healthcare; illegal immigration and securing our borders; dismantling the network of cartels in our country; eliminating ISIS and radical Islamic terrorists; poverty, welfare and unemployment; and rebuilding the military. It was one of the most inspiring speeches in American history.
That didn’t stop Democrats from being disrespectful as they took the opportunity to audibly naysay his points instead of finding the positivity in them. Many female Democratic senators and congresswomen wore white or off-white in a show of solidarity toward the issue of women’s suffrage, as if that is actually an issue. To be clear, there is no war on women in America. That is just another ploy the left uses to divide Americans and play them for their votes.
Because the left has successfully indoctrinated much of America, Trump’s opponents are opponents merely for the sake of being cool, thereby being accepted. Take Hollywood liberals, for instance. To them it’s cool to hate Trump and to be on the left, not knowing why, not taking the time to give serious thought to their own beliefs and values. They look like idiots, however, as they have not one fact to form a solid argument.
Now is the time for real change and gradually there may be a shift. Is it possible people will wake up, see the positive things getting done and be forced to accept that Trump’s policies and actions have helped the country, unlike Obama’s which only attempted to deconstruct the nation?
I believe in time America will unite, most of us anyway. Republicans and Democrats, the right and the left, regardless of ethnicity, race or color, can all find common ground as we support each other’s successes.
President Trump is seen as a populist president, to the chagrin of many conservatives. He says what’s on his mind and on the minds of many Americans as well. But his bombastic remarks and his sometimes buffoonish antics have taken a back seat to communicating real ideas and solutions to America’s problems. Maybe a populist president is what America needs right now in order to unite us.
