US Economy Up, Energy Up, Trump Up
At the same time, the Trump presidency has a lot of good things going for it.
The Republican tax cuts are working. People are getting bonuses and pay raises, and they are seeing companies beginning to reinvest in America.
The president’s strong actions against Russia after the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in London pretty well knocked down any assertion that President Trump is unwaveringly pro-Putin.
More and more foreign leaders are coming to the White House because President Trump is being recognized and acting as a world leader, despite the elite media’s effort to undermine him.
President Trump’s decision to talk with North Korea strikes most Americans as a welcome alternative to fighting another war on the peninsula. With Mike Pompeo and John Bolton nominated as secretary of state and national security adviser, respectively, it is hard to argue the Trump administration will go soft or be deceived by the North Koreans during the discussions. As Winston Churchill once said: “Meeting jaw to jaw is better than war.”
Finally, the president’s opponents keep helping him.
Whoever thought up the stunt of gathering more than 1,000 Central Americans in a caravan to travel across a complicit Mexico toward the U.S. border had no idea of the opportunity they were giving President Trump.
If we ever needed to demonstrate the case for a strong border wall, this supposed Central American invasion of our southern border will convince most Americans.
This may all change, but for the moment, President Trump is winning and the elite media is not.
