The end of Donald Trump’s first 100 days are upon us, so it’s a good time to see the forest from the trees. Between the misinformation, propaganda, media bias, and liberal hostility, it’s a good idea to see how our President is really doing.
President Donald Trump, for lack of a better phrase, is KILLING IT!
Let’s start with the area where he said he got most of his information from television: foreign policy. Despite talking with John Bolton, Rudy Giuliani and David Petraeus, Trump chose the Texas ExxonMobil tycoon – with no government experience – Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, and that’s proven to be one of his best picks yet!
Tillerson has smoothed over the ruffled Chinese feathers since he campaign. China since has taken the task of cautioning Kim Jong Un and North Korea, with China’s People’s Daily writing, “Trump is a man who honors his promises. Among those promises: a better trade deal for China.”
When it comes to Russia, Tillerson met with Soviets for a “frank discussion” in Moscow Wednesday, after the U.S. missile attack on Syrian airbases, in response to a chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians, believed to be ordered from it’s own President Bashar al Assad. UN ambassador Nikki Haley is also proving her strength, taking a hard stance toward Russia for its alliance with Assad.
Back here at home, yes, the first attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare flopped after House Speaker Paul Ryan’s complex “better way” couldn’t get enough GOP votes to make it to the House floor. Despite Ryan’s setback, the way is now even more clear for a cleaner repeal, along with a tax reform.
Although Trump’s two executive orders on seven Muslim countries were stayed by federal judges, the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as an associate justice will clear that up real quick when those two cases land in the Supreme Court. Plus, the Republican’s use of the “nuclear option” to stop a filibuster against Gorsuch means Trump’s next Supreme Court pick should get a speedy confirmation.
What’s been seen but not heard has been the administration’s quick movements on downsizing the federal government, proposing true spending cuts, and reorganizing the government, to where you’re actually seeing what Trump promised: draining the swamp. Trump also lifted the government hiring freeze to replace all the Obama holdovers.
Despite all the success just outlined, the mainstream media likes to illustrate the White House as a sinking shit with no oar. But that’s how any President’s first 100-days are usually. However, with Trump as a notable business tycoon, it’s no surprise he rolled up his sleeves and got to work, hiring almost an entire staff to “Make America Great Again.”
A glooming prediction, however. When “all the kings horses and all the kings men” are finally put in place to put the government back together again, watch for an “in-house feud” between chief counselor Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
The President who holds the record for the number of programs introduced in his first 100-days is Franklin D. Roosevelt, who assumed office in the midst of the Great Depression. Something democrats tout – even to this day – when it happened almost 90-years ago, and we haven’t seen a democratic President do the same since. But Trump was elected by both the popular and electoral vote to do just the opposite: tear down the over-zealous government, and give people back their freedoms.
