Stories worth sharing

1600 Daily
From The White House – October 31, 2020

President Trump’s accomplishments are unparalleled. But for the past four years, the leftwing media—with help from their allies in Big Tech—has refused to cover this Administration fairly. Recently, some companies are even censoring conservative voices.
 
Here are six stories that explain the historic work of President Trump’s Administration. Please share them with anyone you think should hear them.

  1. The Blue-Collar Presidency: President Trump is fighting for the middle-class Americans once sidelined by our country’s own politicians. Under his Administration, wages are growing faster for workers than for managers and fastest for those without a college degree.
     
  2. America’s Seniors Will Pay for a Democrat-Socialist Agenda: Average Medicare health plan premiums have dropped by 34% under President Trump. The far left’s “Medicare for All” socialist scheme threatens this progress.
     
  3. The Trump Doctrine—Terrorists Lose and Peace Wins: Five years ago, Americans watched in horror as ISIS gained power and terrorists killed on U.S. soil. Today, ISIS is destroyed, terrorist leaders Al-Baghdadi and Soleimani are dead, and instead of fighting endless wars, America is brokering peace deals.
     
  4. Put the American People First, Not China: For years, the left stood by as the Chinese Communist Party hurt American citizens. With COVID-19, they’re doing it again. President Trump’s strategy is clear: Don’t punish Americans for the mistakes and failures of other countries and global organizations.
     
  5. The Fastest Recovery in History: America has added more than 11 million jobs since May—the quickest comeback on record. New GDP data also reveals the American economy is weathering the global pandemic better than Europe.
     
  6. Donald Trump Fought the Establishment—and Won: President Trump took on the far left, the Republican donor class, the corporate media, China, Big Pharma, and the failed ideology of globalization. The American people wanted change, and the political class didn’t listen. Fortunately, President Trump did.

President Trump has fought tirelessly for the American people–and he’s just getting started!

BREAKING: Senate Confirms Amy Coney Barrett

From The White House – October 26, 2020

After a unanimous vote by the Judiciary Committee last week, the Senate just confirmed Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett to become the 115th Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

“Having confirmed her to the Circuit Court in 2017 with bipartisan support, the Senate has already undertaken a thorough and rigorous review of her record,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said after President Trump made the nomination last month.

Throughout Justice Barrett’s career, she has faithfully upheld the U.S. Constitution as written. The American Bar Association gave Barrett its highest rating, and she has an impressive track record across the legal profession—as a judge, professor, and litigator.

Most important, she will bring a valuable new perspective to our nation’s High Court:

  • Justice Barrett is the first mother of school-aged children to become a Supreme Court Justice. She is also only the fifth woman ever to serve.
     
  • As the mother of a child with special needs, she understands the issues and concerns confronting our nation’s most vulnerable people.
     
  • Justice Barrett is the only current justice to have a law degree from a school other than Harvard or Yale. She graduated at the top of her class from Notre Dame Law School in Indiana.

Justice Barrett has made her philosophy clear: She will not legislate from the bench. “Courts have a vital responsibility to the rule of law, which is critical to a free society, but courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life,” she said during her confirmation hearings.

“The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches, elected by and accountable to the people,” she added.

One letter—written by Justice Barrett’s former law clerks—calls her approach principled and independent-minded. “Judge Barrett taught us that a good judge will not always like the results she reaches; a good judge goes wherever the law leads,” it says.

Justice Barrett is the very model of a sympathetic yet impartial judge, according to her colleagues at Notre Dame Law School. She is exactly the type of person whom the American people deserve to have sitting on their Supreme Court.

“If we are to protect our institutions, and protect the freedoms, and protect the rule of law that’s the basis for the society and the freedom that we all enjoy—if we want that for our children and our children’s children—then we need to participate in that work,” Justice Barrett said.

President Trump proclaims ‘Made in America’ Week!

1600 Daily
From The White House – October 06, 2020
Each year, President Trump welcomes businesses to the White House from every American state to display their goods at the Made in America Showcase.
 
“Buy American, Hire American” is more than a motto for President Trump. It is the strategy that has driven his entire Administration’s economic agenda. His Proclamation on Made in America Day and Made in America Week 2020 reads, in part:
  For too long, politicians failed to recognize the critical importance of using American labor to make American goods, so that the profits and jobs stay here at home. They enabled American companies to ship their jobs overseas and sat by while foreign companies ripped off our products . . . 
Fifty U.S. companies were invited to take part in this year’s Made in America Showcase. While unable to come together in person this year, many of these great businesses shared videos online explaining the importance of “Made in America!”
 
🎬 Goya Foods: Started by an immigrant to live the American Dream!
 
“Goya was started nearly 85 years ago by my grandfather, who came to the country as an immigrant to live and fulfill the American Dream,” Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said. “And we have fulfilled that dream.”
 
Another company, Mountain Ridge Gear of Colorado, shared its passion for using American-sourced materials for its products. “As long as this company exists, we will use American-made products to build our gear,” owner Eric Lynn said.
 
🎬 Mountain Ridge Gear: A veteran-owned, family-run business!

Kan Jam—a gaming business based in Buffalo, New York—”is proud to be Made in America,” the company tweeted. “Thank you to the current administration for creating an environment conducive for American based manufacturing!”
 
🎬 Kan Jam: An American company born and raised in Buffalo, NY!
 
In every state, small and large businesses such as these are putting patriotism first and contributing to our nation’s Great American Comeback under President Trump.
 
“The President extends his sincere appreciation to the companies that planned to attend this year’s event at the White House,” Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement. “He is incredibly proud of their grit, ingenuity, and use of American labor to manufacture exceptional products in the homeland.”
 
President Trump says “Made in America” isn’t a slogan. It is a solemn pledge.
 
“On every front, my Administration will continue to fight for American workers, American jobs, and American businesses to ensure prosperity today and for America’s future generations.”

President Trump signs executive order to bring drug manufacturing back home

The White House – August 6, 2020
Visiting Ohio today, President Trump just signed an executive order to expand “Made in America” production, bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States, and ensure that our citizens have access to the life-saving medicines they need.
 
These actions come at a crucial time “as we fight this battle against the invisible enemy from China,” White House Director of Trade & Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro says.
 
Here are a few things the new order will accomplish:
Establish “Buy American” rules for Federal Government agencies
 Strip away regulatory barriers to domestic pharmaceutical manufacturing
 Help spark the manufacturing technologies needed to keep drug prices low and move more medicine production onshore 
President Trump signed the order today while visiting a Whirlpool manufacturing plant in Clyde, Ohio. This plant represents another important piece of President Trump’s pro-America, pro-worker trade strategy toward China and other countries.
 
In January 2018, the United States challenged years of unfair trade practices by imposing tariffs that stopped washing machine manufacturers, including Whirlpool, from getting undercut by Chinese imports. After President Trump took action, Whirlpool’s Clyde plant alone was able to create 200 new jobs for U.S. workers.
 
“Washington stood idly by as other countries engaged in unfair trade practices, such as massive subsidies, currency manipulation, and . . . the wholesale dumping of foreign-made products sold below cost for the sole purpose of driving you out of business” so they could later jack up prices, President Trump told workers today.
 
🎬 President Trump: “But we didn’t let that happen, did we?”
 
Today’s executive order directs the Department of Health and Human Services to use the Defense Production Act to buy essential medicines and other equipment from within the United States. Drug prices will be kept low for customers, and American companies will be able to compete more fairly on the world stage as a result.
 
In addition, the FDA and the Environmental Protection Agency will now give priority to domestic manufacturers during the regulatory review of pharmaceutical ingredients and essential medicines. Federal agencies will also help prevent the trafficking of counterfeit medicines from third-party sellers online.
 
“It’s a great day for America,” Navarro said.” The President has promised that he would bring home the supply chains in production for our essential medicines, and today we’re taking a very big step towards fulfillment of that promise.”
 
🎬 Peter Navarro: It’s important to bring our supply chains home
 
President Trump has long made returning blue-collar jobs to America a top priority. Now, the Coronavirus pandemic has made even clearer the risks of becoming reliant on foreign nations for our essential supplies. Fortunately, more than any other president in history, President Trump is a fearless advocate for both buying and hiring American.
 
As a result, his list of trade accomplishments keeps growing. NAFTA is gone, replaced by a far stronger United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. China and its enablers on the global stage are at last being held accountable. Trade agreements with South Korea, Japan, and others have been renegotiated to protect American jobs and customers.
 
“Globalization has made the financial elites who donate to politicians very wealthy, but it’s left millions and millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache—and our towns and cities with empty factories and plants,” President Trump said.
 
“We’ve made extraordinary progress in reversing the dangerous tide of globalism.”

President Trump welcomes ‘Walking Marine’ to the White House

The White House – July 27, 2020
PHOTOS: President Trump welcomes ‘Walking Marine’ to the White House
For six years, Terry Sharpe—or the “Walking Marine,” as he’s known—has completed seven 300-mile walks to raise awareness for veteran suicide.
 
Today, 69-year-old Sharpe completed his eighth and final walk, arriving in Washington all the way from Summerfield, North Carolina. He was joined by Second Lady Karen Pence at the Washington Monument, and the pair crossed the finish line on the South Lawn of the White House, where Sharpe was greeted by President Trump.
 
Our country loses an average of more than 20 veterans to suicide each day. President Trump has taken several important actions to help end this tragedy, including establishing the PREVENTS veteran suicide task force last March. Mrs. Pence serves as the task force’s lead ambassador.
 
President Trump has also secured a record $73.1 billion for the Department of Veterans Affairs and signed the VA MISSION Act into law in 2018, which revolutionized the VA healthcare system and restored much-needed accountability to the agency.

Congress didn’t act on prescription drug prices—so President Trump did
Americans have waited decades for Washington to keep its promise to fix soaring prescription drug prices. Now, thanks to President Trump, that long wait is over.
 
🎬 President Trump just took historic action to lower medicine costs
 
The President signed four sweeping executive orders on Friday, which together will significantly lower the cost of prescription drugs while increasing access to life-saving medications such as insulin:
  • The first order directs federally qualified health centers to pass along massive discounts on insulin and epinephrine from drug companies to low-income Americans.
     
  • The second order will allow the safe, legal importation of prescription drugs from Canada and other countries where the price for identical drugs is lower.
     
  • The third order will prohibit secret deals between drug manufacturers and pharmacy “benefit manager” middlemen, ensuring patients directly benefit from available discounts at the pharmacy counter.
     
  • The fourth order ensures the United States pays the lowest price available among economically advanced countries for Medicare Part B drugs. The United States often pays 80 percent more for these drugs than other developed nations.
 
“The four orders that I’m signing today will completely restructure the prescription drug market, in terms of pricing and everything else, to make these medications affordable and accessible for all Americans,” President Trump said.
 
In 2018, prescription drugs saw their largest annual price decrease in more than half a century. Average basic premiums for Medicare Part D prescription drug plans have fallen by 13.5 percent since 2017, saving beneficiaries $1.9 billion in premium costs. Friday’s four executive orders build on this crucial progress.
 
At the White House on Friday, a number of Americans shared personal stories about the importance of lowering medicine costs for all patients.

After her husband died in an auto accidentAndrea Eckles ended up with more than $15,000 in medical debt when she had to switch healthcare plans. “I work in a very small dental office, and so my only choice for healthcare at that time was what I call the ‘Unaffordable Care Act,'” she said.
 
Paul Madden has lived with insulin-dependent diabetes for 59 years. “Your work, sir, to ensure that insulin is affordable under Medicare will help guarantee that I and millions of seniors who take insulin realize healthier, more productive, independent, happier lives,” Mr. Madden told the President.
