Public Credits Trump More Than Obama for Booming Economy

The White House – February 19, 2020

“In the new fight between President Trump and former President Barack Obama over who did most for the economy, Gallup has an answer: Trump,” Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner.
 
“A solid majority” of Americans, 61 percent, gave President Trump credit for the improving economy. A full 10 percent fewer said former President Obama deserves credit.

America’s long-broken mental health system is “turning business districts into homeless camps, forcing police to run shadow mental-health systems, causing chaos for families of mentally ill adults, and driving up costs.” President Trump’s new budget proposes closing a crucial loophole—”the most important thing federal government could do to improve care for the seriously mentally ill,” D.J. Jaffe writes in The Wall Street Journal.

“First Lady Melania Trump will be in Palm Beach Wednesday to accept a major honor. She has been named Palm Beach Atlantic University’s 2020 Woman of Distinction. She’s specifically being recognized for her contributions to the community and issues affecting children,” Victoria Lewis reports for WPTV.

Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice praised President Trump yesterday for pardoning Edward DeBartolo Jr., former owner of the San Francisco 49ers. “I take my hat off to Donald Trump for what he did,” Rice told reporters on the White House’s North Lawn. “Several former NFL players met with Trump on Tuesday, including Rice, Jim Brown, Ronnie Lott and Charles Haley,” Scott Gleeson reports in USA Today.

Sanctuaries for whom?

“My grandmother was very generous and educated,” Daria Ortiz said. “She’s a shining example of when people come legally to this country, work hard, and do the right thing and are law-abiding citizens.”
 
Maria Fuertes, Ortiz’s grandmother, was raped and murdered last month in Queens, New York. She was 92.
 
Police charged illegal immigrant and alleged repeat criminal offender Reeaz Khan with Maria’s murder. Khan, from Guyana, had been arrested previously for assault. New York City released him from jail despite a detainer request from U.S. immigration officials.
 
WATCH: Border Security is National Security! 
 
Across the country, left-wing politicians use these so-called “sanctuary” policies to put dangerous, often violent criminals back on our streets. After all, “sanctuary cities” have nothing to do with protecting law-abiding immigrants: Their purpose is to stop the United States from deporting illegal aliens with criminal charges and convictions.  
 
“The man that is responsible for this should have never had the opportunity to do this, had his multiple offenses not been ignored,” Ortiz said of her grandmother’s killer. “The system not only failed our family, but it failed our city.”
 
Ortiz joined President Trump at a White House event Friday to honor heroes from the U.S. Border Patrol. She thanked the Administration for acknowledging her family’s tragedy while so many others ignore the human cost of sanctuary cities.
 
“Not one more American life should be stolen by sanctuary cities,” President Trump told her. “That’s why we’re calling on Congress to pass legislation giving American victims the right to sue sanctuary cities and hold them accountable for the suffering and the damages that they’ve caused.”
 
President Trump: Politicians want sanctuary cities—our citizens do not.

“The tens of thousands of patriots here today have come for the fast cars and the world-class motor sports,” President Trump said, “but NASCAR fans never forget that no matter who wins the race, what matters most is God, family, and country.”
 
During the final lap, driver Ryan Newman’s car flipped over in a terrible accident. President Trump wrote on Twitter that he was praying for Ryan, calling him a “great and brave NASCAR driver.”

TRUMP HAS GIVEN US A PATH TO A BALANCED BUDGET

The White House – February 11, 2020

It’s Pro-Worker, Pro-Family and Pro-Growth,

Everything Dims Hate and More.

“In 2017, Speaker Pelosi famously cajoled House Republicans to produce a budget, warning ‘show me your budget, show me your values.’ She was understood to mean that you can learn about someone’s deepest convictions judging the way in which they spend their money,” Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) writes for Fox News.
 
“Ironically, she and her party never produced a budget when they regained control of the House in 2019 . . . In contrast, President Trump is not afraid to put his cards on the table.” His new proposed budget is a stark departure from Beltway “business as usual,” putting the Federal ledger on a path back to surpluses in just 15 years.

The “petulant” antics of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during last week’s State of the Union address were not only a poor reflection on her—they showed Congressional Democrats’ true colors. It “underscored the desperation of a party that has lurched to the left” to satisfy its increasingly socialist base, Miranda Devine writes in the New York Post.

House Democrats wasted 178 days on their impeachment charade. “The vote for acquittal in the Senate does not negate the fact that the do-nothing Democrats wasted three years and millions of taxpayer dollars by supporting baseless witch hunts against a president they have wanted to destroy since day one,” Steve Pearce writes in the Albuquerque Journal.

“Today, after months of impeachment proceedings, accusations of wrongdoing and a media that has reported overwhelmingly negative stories about him for three years, [President Trump’s] polling numbers are at their highest ever. Why? Because the president kept his promise to remember the forgotten, and he’s continued to push ahead with policies to help them and every American,” writes Heritage Foundation President Kay Coles James in The Washington Times.

Trump Reminds CONGRESS What Matters to AmericaNS

The White House – February 5, 2020

Sen. Marco Rubio: Trump State of the Union Reminds Us of What Matters to America

“President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night was a much-needed and refreshing reminder that life does indeed exist outside the Washington bubble,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) writes for Fox News.
 
“He spoke to the hundreds of millions of Americans who do not spend each day refreshing their Twitter accounts to find out the latest ‘hot take’ . . .  It is time we focus on what matters to the American people, not to Washington pundits.”

President Trump seized the moment last night with a “powerful, patriotic” State of the Union message to Americans across the political spectrum. “And then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reinforced his message with her oh-so-symbolic ripping up of the text. What, other than channeling the alienation of the Democratic base from the great American center, was she thinking?” the New York Post editorial board writes.

“President Donald Trump surprised an Army wife during Tuesday’s State of the Union address, bringing her husband home from Afghanistan and directly into the chamber . . . The crowd erupted with cheers and applause as Sergeant Williams walked down the steps to embrace his stunned wife and children,” Virginia Kruta writes for The Daily Caller.

“The jobs market kicked off 2020 in grand fashion, adding 291,000 in private payrolls for the best monthly gain since May 2015 . . . That was well above the 150,000 estimate from economists surveyed by Dow Jones,” Jeff Cox reports for CNBC.

TOP 10: President Trump’s biggest accomplishments of 2019!

Americans saw plenty of Washington at its worst this year, with one party in Congress obsessed with a partisan impeachment stunt and obstructing progress at every turn. But despite getting no help from the far left, America today is soaring to new heights.

It’s tough to pick only 10 accomplishments from such an extraordinary year, but here are just a few of the biggest things President Donald J. Trump has gotten done for the American people in 2019:

1. The Trump Boom is going strong. The unemployment rate recently hit its lowest mark in 50 years. All told, since President Trump’s election, our economy has added more than 7 million jobs—over half a million in manufacturing alone.

2. The stock market keeps breaking records: The Dow Jones and S&P 500 hit record closes again on Friday. 

3. The working class is thriving, as are previously forgotten communities. Wages are now rising the fastest for low-income workers, and poverty rates for African Americans and Hispanic Americans have reached all-time lows.

4. Accountable government is back. Since taking office, President Trump has rolled back nearly 8 regulations for every new one, saving American taxpayers more than $50 billion in the process—with bigger savings still to come.

5. Better trade deals are putting America back in the driver’s seat. Congress approved President Trump’s USMCA this month—a huge win for U.S. workers, farmers, and manufacturers that will create 176,000 new jobs.

6. Trade with China in particular is about to get a whole lot fairer. As part of a historic “phase 1” deal, Beijing has agreed to structural reforms in its trade practices and to make substantial purchases of American agricultural products.

7. Securing the border is paying off and making our country safer. President Trump struck new agreements with Mexico and Central American countries this year to help stop the flood of illegal immigration. Thanks to this swift action, border apprehensions fell by more than 70 percent from May to November.

8. On health care, President Trump is fighting to give our patients the best system on Earth. While Democrats try to take away choice, the President’s focus on affordability led to the largest year-over-year drop in drug prices ever recorded.

9. American interests are taking center stage abroad. In just one example: After years of not paying their fair share, NATO Allies will have increased defense spending by $130 billion by the end of next year.

10. Our great military took out the world’s top terrorist in October. (Meet Conan, the hero dog who helped them do it!) Our troops are now getting the support they deserve. President Trump recently signed the National Defense Authorization Act for the 2020 fiscal year, which includes the biggest pay raise for our military in a decade.

On behalf of President Trump and his entire Administration, have a blessed and wonderful New Year!

WATCH: “Our best days are yet to come!”
And from myself as well, I pray you all have a blessed New Year and fill it with hope, love, peace and joy.
