Five Stories President Trump Doesn’t Want You to Miss

The White House – July 10, 2020

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos Wants Schools Open Full-Time This Fall
Chicago Tribune
“Ultimately, it’s not a matter of if schools need to open, it’s a matter of how. School must reopen, they must be fully operational. And how that happens is best left to education and community leaders,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told governors this week. On Tuesday, President Trump held a White House summit on reopening schools this fall.

China Never Reported Existence of Coronavirus to World Health Organization
The Washington Free Beacon
“Contrary to claims from both Chinese officials and the World Health Organization, China did not report the existence of the coronavirus in late 2019, according to a WHO timeline tracking the spread of the virus. Rather, international health officials discovered the virus through information posted to a U.S. website,” Adam Kredo reports.

Last Week’s Jobs Report Was Good. Here’s Why the July Report Will Be Even Better in Spite of Pandemic Fears.
Yahoo Finance
“The June employment report from the [Bureau of Labor Statistics] showed an increase of 4.8 million jobs,” Yahoo Finance reports. Now, “daily job listing data, especially in the retail and hospitality sectors,” indicate that July could be an even stronger month for job growth.

Trump Committed to Helping Hispanics Create Prosperity Through Business, Education
Miami Herald
“As the daughter of first-generation Mexican Americans born in a working-class community in Chicago, I know firsthand how important opportunity is in promoting upward mobility and achieving the American Dream,” writes U.S. Small Business Administrator Jovita Carranza. And creating such opportunity is the “central goal” behind an executive order on Hispanic prosperity that President Trump signed Thursday.

The Media’s War on Words
National Review
“Every time some new correct-speak emerges, CNN and all the media will participate in browbeating us into subservience. Progressive pundits will laugh off concerns about the Orwellian slippery slope. And all of them will immediately sign on to the next round of rhetorical groupthink and further degrade clear language and clear thinking,” David Harsanyi writes.

President Trump Is Reversing Credential Inflation in the Federal Workforce

The White House – June 29th, 2020
“On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order directing federal agencies to fill job vacancies based on merit, rather than require a minimum level of education for candidates seeking open positions,” Preston Cooper reports for Forbes.
“Credential inflation shuts out experienced, qualified job candidates who are perfectly capable of filling certain roles simply because they lack the right piece of paper . . . Most perniciously, it convinces young jobseekers that they need a bachelor’s degree or even a graduate degree to succeed.”

Last year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection rescued 4,900 people. “For an agency that faces calls to ‘defund CBP’ and whose personnel are labeled murderers and white supremacists, the lack of attention to the rescues is a source of deep frustration, said Mark Morgan, acting head of CBP,” Stephen Dinan writes in The Washington Times.

“It is incumbent upon elected leaders, at every level, to tackle [the tension between law enforcement and the Black community] head on by having an open, honest conversation about how we can move forward together. I’ve appreciated President Trump’s willingness to do just that,” Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron writes in Black Press USA.

“Four men have been charged in connection with damage to a statue of President Andrew Jackson during protests near the White House, the U.S. Justice Department said on Saturday,” Diane Bartz reports in Reuters. “‘These charges should serve as a warning to those who choose to desecrate the statues and monuments that adorn our nation’s capital,’ said Acting U.S. Attorney Michael R. Sherwin.” Read more in Reuters.

Trump Wants Federal Hiring to Focus on Skills Over Degrees

-The Associated Press
President Trump signed an executive order today that prioritizes skills over degrees for many federal jobs. “Aides say the change will create more opportunities for Americans to work for the federal government,” Darlene Superville reports in The Associated Press.

Trump Is Right About Police. We Ask Officers to Take on Too Many Duties.
-USA Today
“President Donald Trump’s executive order on policing has been pilloried by the ‘defund the police’ crowd who want substantial police reforms. But Trump’s approach represents the best hope yet for improving policing . . . By narrowing the role of policing, both police critics and supporters can achieve their aims,” Jason Johnson writes.

‘One Job at A Time’ Strategy Brings Ship Construction to Marinette
Wisconsin State Journal
President Trump visited Wisconsin yesterday to celebrate a new $5.5 billion Navy shipbuilding contract. “Together, the Marinette shipyard’s contribution to America’s defenses and to job creation perfectly capture a key guiding principle of the Trump administration, namely, that ‘economic security is national security,'” White House Director of Trade & Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro writes.

200 Judges: A Milestone for President Trump
-USA Today
“This week the Senate reached a milestone, confirming President Trump’s 200th judge,” Carrie Campbell Severino writes in USA Today. “The 200 confirmations occurred in the face of unprecedented obstacles. Democrats, intent for years on using the courts to impose their own policy agenda, abused one Senate process after another.”

The Era of Offshoring U.S. Jobs Is Over

The White House – May 13, 2020

“Some say crises don’t so much alter the course of history as accelerate changes already underway. That’s certainly the case when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic and the offshoring of American jobs,” U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer writes in The New York Times.
“Every day I talk to business leaders who now acknowledge they underestimated the risk in decisions to move jobs overseas . . . The pandemic has vindicated the Trump trade policy in another way: It has revealed our over-reliance on other countries as sources of critical medicines, medical devices and personal protective equipment.”

“Newly released Congressional testimony shows that Adam Schiff spread falsehoods shamelessly about Russia and Donald Trump for three years even as his own committee gathered contrary evidence,” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes.

For many Americans, especially in rural communities, access to high-speed broadband is essential now more than ever. Under President Trump, the Agriculture Department “is not letting-up in our strong effort to close the digital divide. We are using every resource available to us to bring this vital connection to rural homes, businesses and essential facilities,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue writes in The Detroit News.

A less politicized media would applaud Senior Adviser Jared Kushner’s behind-the-scenes work to mitigate the impact of the Coronavirus. “But because Kushner is part of the Trump administration, and because the work he is doing is part of President Trump’s bold and comprehensive response to the Wuhan virus crisis, Kushner is attacked in a way that a member of a Democrat administration never would be,” Boris Epshteyn writes in Townhall.

Watch: THANK YOU for rebuilding our country!

President Donald J. Trump traveled to Pittsburgh yesterday, where he spoke to workers in America’s booming energy sector at the Shale Insight Conference.

The last time President Trump spoke at the conference was on the campaign trail in 2016. Back then, American energy was under relentless assault—not from some foreign enemy, but from our own Federal Government. The previous Administration made it its mission to stifle growth with crippling regulations aimed at energy producers. These policies did nothing to advance “green energy,” but they did cost many workers their jobs.

American energy dominance is a powerful symbol of President Trump’s larger mission for our nation: “Instead of relying on foreign oil and foreign energy, we are now relying on American energy and American workers like never before,” he says.

“I’m here with the incredible people who fuel our factories, light up our homes, power our industries, and fill our hearts with true American pride,” he added. “With unmatched skill, grit, and devotion, you are making America the greatest energy superpower in the history of the world.”

Energy superpower is no exaggeration. Here are some of the facts and numbers behind America’s energy boom under the Trump Administration:

The United States is now the world leader in oil and natural gas production.
 Crude oil reached a record high in production last year—and is projected to set another record this year.

 Ditto for natural gas: Production is on pace to set a record high in 2019, the third straight year of such a record.

 In 2018, coal exports reached their highest level in 5 years.

It wasn’t a mystery figuring out how to get America back on top globally—it just took a President willing to abolish the counterproductive war on American energy workers. The Trump Administration ended job-killing policies put in place under President Obama, like the Clean Power Plan and “stream protection rule.” It pulled America out of the fraudulent, ineffective, and one-sided Paris Climate Accord. And it has opened up federally owned land and offshore areas for exploration and production.

President Trump also believes in building world-class infrastructure that puts more Americans back to work—no matter what the far left tries to block. His Administration has approved permits for the crucial Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines, for instance.

Back in 2008, Democrats actually offered a startling preview of what was to come. “If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them,” then-Sen. Barack Obama explained. He was telling the truth: By the time President Trump took office, more than a third of all coal mining jobs had vanished.

The left is at it again, but this time there’s even less pretending about their true motives. If implemented, the “Green New Deal” would be the most radical takeover of America’s economy ever contemplated. The ultimate goal is to eradicate all production of oil, coal, and natural gas in the United States—and millions of jobs along with it.   

President Trump made clear yesterday that he will never let that happen. That’s because he knows who built this great country—and it wasn’t wanna-be socialists in Congress.

“I will never stop fighting for you, because I know that you are the ones who are rebuilding our nation. You are the ones who are restoring our strength. You are the ones renewing our spirit. And you are the ones who are making America greater than it has ever been before.”

Thanks to President Trump, the war on American energy is over.
