Changing the Status Quo
One of the best quotes in recent weeks was made by President Trump’s daughter Ivanka during the festivities of his RNC acceptance speech. She said, “Washington hasn’t changed Donald Trump, Donald Trump has changed Washington.” Whether you love or hate him that sums up precisely how one man can make a difference.
In 2017 Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi summed it up nicely when he told President Trump that “you have a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible.”
Supporters of the president love him because he says what he means and means what he says. He speaks from the heart and is a very compassionate man when he sees someone hurting or in need. It’s not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.
Never-Trumpers hate him because they’ve been conditioned to hate over the airwaves, media, television and internet. Mention or see the name Trump is a trigger to hate.
They hate his Build the Wall slogan, which was more than a slogan, but a necessity to secure the US Southern border with Mexico to prevent unlawful entry, drugs and human trafficking. In 3 ½ years more than 300 miles of border wall has been completed and construction will be completed in 2021.
They hate his America First slogan which they call racist and xenophobic. “As president I will always put what is best for America and what is best for the American people.” – DJT.
They hate his Make America Great Again slogan and say America was never great. They do not recognize the historical value Americans have made in helping fight oppression and for freedom of people around the world over the years.
They hate his smile because to them it is one of deceit, like they do for each other.
They hate his words because he doesn’t coddle to them or mince words.
They hate his arrogance and tenacity because he doesn’t quit, especially when they tell him he can’t win.
They hate his love of God because they don’t have that kind of love in their life.
They hate it when he acts with authority because he doesn’t ask them for permission.
They call him a coward, because of what they see when they look in the mirror. Have you ever seen a coward stand toe-to-toe with the enemy and not back down as they attack him non-stop and repeatedly for four years? A coward would have thrown in the towel long ago.
They call him a draft dodger because he didn’t serve in the military during the Vietnam War. He obtained student deferments and a medical disqualification that prevented him from serving. He did not do as Bill Clinton, who ran to England instead of reporting for active duty as ordered. He did not do as John Kerry who served in Vietnam then came home and actively demonstrated against the war.
Trump is an American patriot who believes in American greatness and ability to overcome adversity and has a vision for America’s future.
Trump is a street fighter, a counter-puncher who doesn’t run from a fight, but dishes it right back to them.
Trump is a very successful businessman who knows that it takes to turn a recession around.
Trump is a tactician who came into office with a tactical advantage. He knew the enemy, yet they didn’t know him. “It’s a very imperfect world, and you can’t always choose your friends. That’s life. But you can never fail to recognize your enemies.” – DJT.
Trump is not afraid to take calculated risks where others have failed. “I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace, than to risk peace in pursuit of politics. As president I will always put what is best for America and what is best for the American people.” – DJT. His efforts have paid off with dividends as Israel and the UAE have agreed to sign a peace accord in the Middle East earning him a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Trump is an innovator who began combatting the Sars-CoV-2 (China Virus) immediately by restricting travel from China and soon other countries in Europe; Mobilizing private industry and government resources to produce personal protective equipment, mobilizing and adapting medical facilities to treat COVID patients; and work with congress on stimulus payments for workers and companies affected by the nationwide shutdown to flatten the curve.
“Remember this, nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy. Following your convictions means you must be willing to face criticism from those who lack the same courage to do what is right. And they know what is right, but they don’t have the courage or the guts or the stamina to take it and to do it. It’s called the road less traveled.” – DJT.
“God definitely works in mysterious ways, but many times it’s pretty obvious. This is one of those times. It’s not happenstance that Donald Trump became president.” – The Faith of Donald J. Trump.
Trump is not a typical politician who is in it for personal gain. He has worked tirelessly for the past 4 years without pay, donating his quarterly salary to various government agencies for specific purposes. Name one other president who has done that? Go ahead I’ll wait!
“Young Americans should be taught to love our country, honor our anthem, and proudly recite the Pledge of Allegiance.” – DJT.
Trump is far from perfect, but he is perfect for the presidency at this time in our nation’s history. I wouldn’t be surprised if after 8 years in office he doesn’t write “The Art of the Presidency – by Donald J. Trump” to tell all about what it was like working with politicians who figuratively stabbed him in the back while he kept his promises to the American people. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
