After one year in office the President is accelerating his efforts to “Make America Great Again”!
Yesterday, January 9, 2018 the President held a meeting in the White House with members of the House and the Senate, from both parties, and allowed the press to watch and record most of it! In the meeting he challenged both parties to put comprehensive bipartisan immigration reform, and other legislation on his desk. He also said that he would sign it, with NO absolute demands from him regarding what had to be in the legislation. He insisted that if the Democrats and Republicans work together he trusts them to put together reasonable legislation that he can sign and defend. It was fascinating to watch key Democrats’ reaction to the President’s declaration. Steny Hoyer, who was sitting on the left side of the President, looked like he had just taken a large bite out of a green persimmon! He was so shocked that he could not resist looking desperately around the room for someone else to try and somehow rebuff the President’s declaration, while involuntarily shaking his head “NO”. When no one else spoke up he tried, very unsuccessfully, to speak up and RESIST the President’s proposal. He was quickly and reasonably shut down by the President. Then Dianne Feinstein made a feeble attempt to propose to do the things the President referred to in “steps”. She wanted to do what the Democrats want now and then what the President wants “later”. The President shut that down quickly and reasonably. It was amazing to watch how shocked the Democrats were and how the President put them and the RINO Republicans in a position where they practically have to do their jobs, rather than spending all their time trying to keep the “Washington Cesspool” the way it was when President Trump was sworn in!
I have also noticed that we have not seen any organized and paid for anti-America public activity lately? Where are the “vagina hat” rallies, BLM, ANTIFA, anti-Trump or anti-Police riots? All I have seen recently was an internet article claiming that the NAACP was planning to protest President Trump in Atlanta at the college football championship game. If it happened it was not very effective.
Another amazing transformation I have noticed recently is changes in the Democrat and Republican Party membership. Many RINO Republicans are announcing their retirement or eagerly getting on the “Trump Train”. Some Democrats are cautiously talking about working with the Republicans and the White House. And the hard Left Democrats’ and MSM’s efforts to appear “confident” that Trump will fail are appearing even more feeble than they did before.
President Trump has put more effort into working with Congress actually getting things done in his first year in office than Obama did in EIGHT!
President Trump is clearly a “young and energetic” 70 year old and is a perfect example of what it is like to have a successful and accomplished BUSINESS MAN in the White House rather than a career politician! And all indications are that President Trump is just getting started on his “Make America Great Again” agenda.
The next seven years are going to be great for America and the world. And then maybe Nikki Haley, or someone like her, winning the 2024 Presidential election with a promise to continue the “Trump Legacy”!
