Donald Trump’s now famous 2016 “Make America Great Again” promise was, and remains, much more than a campaign slogan. Even The New York Times conceded after President Trump’s first year in office, “A wave of optimism has swept over American business leaders, and it is beginning to translate into the sort of investment in new plants, equipment and factory upgrades that bolsters economic growth, spurs job creation — and may finally raise wages significantly.”
That optimism, economic expansion, and job and wage growth have accelerated in the nine months since his first inaugural address — “Our New American Moment.” The indisputable results of Trump’s domestic policy successes, combined with his administration’s considerable foreign policy achievements, have ensured that all Americans are better off today than we were two years ago.
But unfortunately, many Democrat voters are mired in leftist echo chambers and are so politically despondent that they believe this to be the most depressing era in our nation’s history. In a recent conversation with author Jon Meacham regarding his new book, “The Soul of America,” he noted that what is most wrong with the state of our national partisanship is that we are unable or unwilling to embrace what the other side is doing to make America great again. Despite Trump’s considerable character flawsand contentious communication style, the fact is, his administration has accomplished great things for ALL Americans.
In the depths of the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt famously declared in his first inaugural address, “Let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. … We face the arduous days that lie before us in the warm courage of the national unity.”
But today’s Democrat Party “leaders,” in their insatiable and increasingly irrational quest to recover power, have nothing to offer their constituents but fear and disunity. Their midterm campaign theme is “HATE TRUMP.” The Leftmedia has ramped up its hate bait rhetoric, with CNN’s race-baiters leading the charge.
But hating Trump is tantamount to hating half of America. This midterm election has, as President Trump has repeatedly framed it, become a contest between jobs and mobs... ~The Patriot Post
