Like the band Green Day says, “Don’t wanna be an American Idiot.”
Based on most of the polling I see, a solid 35%-45% of Americans could be considered “American Idiots.”
The funniest poll response I see show that only 55%, or so, of Americans approve of President Trump’s handling of the economy!
So 45% of Americans, according to these polls, don’t approve of the way President Trump is handling the economy?!
He has only set every possible, positive, measurable, record regarding the economy in the history of our country!
So what does this tell us?
About 45% of Americans either:
Have no clue what’s really going on, thanks mostly to the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” and the ever disingenuous democrats.
Don’t really care what’s going on…, and they just hate President Trump.
Are just plain ignorant and/or stupid.
Promote the phony liberal narrative to remain socially acceptable within their liberal dominated environment.
Don’t care about the American people, and are only concerned with maintaining and attaining power and control.
Are anti-American, and want to see America do poorly and ultimately fail.
I also talk to my share of “American Idiots” all of the time.
When they discover I like President Trump, they immediately start verbally throwing erroneous charges they’ve “heard from somewhere” in my face.
The first one is always, “He’s a racist!”
Then, “He’s a sexist!”
I respond, “Why do you say that?”
Their answer usually is, “Because he is.”
They obviously aren’t aware that Donald Trump has a great record of promoting and empowering women at his companies.
The GOP website points out, “The Washington Post Headline: ‘Donald Trump, A Champion Of Women? His Female Employees Think So.’”
“Women who have worked with Trump say he was ‘Ahead of his time in providing career advancement for women,’ and he ‘Promoted women in a male-dominated industry.’”
“Louise Sunshine, former Trump Executive Vice President: ‘From the standpoint of being a woman, I just thought he was phenomenal, so supportive and encouraging.’”
“There are more women than men holding executive positions in the Trump Organization, heading such departments as human resources, golf and hotel management, and global licensing, even though women make up just 43 percent of the overall workforce.”
My over-riding response to all of the “American Idiots” would be, “Actions speak louder than words.”
Check out what President Trump has actually done versus the words of his detractors.
In only his first three years in office, President Trump has these tangible accomplishments to point to:
Created 7 million new jobs.
Set an all-time record of more than 158.5 million Americans employed.
Overseen the reopening/opening of 10,000 more factories in America today than on Election Day in 2016.
The unemployment rate for Americans without a high school diploma is at the lowest rate ever recorded.
The unemployment rate for disabled Americans is at the lowest rate ever recorded.
The youth unemployment rate has reached the lowest rate in nearly 50 years.
Hispanic-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.
African-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.
The jobless rate for African-American youth, ages 16 to 19 fell to 19.3 percent last month, the lowest rate on record. Black teenage unemployment peaked at 48.9 percent in 2010, in the heart of the Obama years!
Asian-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.
Women’s unemployment is at the lowest rate in over 65 years.
Income per household has increased $5,205 since 2017 and is still growing.
Average wages have been on the rise for the first time in over 20 years and are still on the rise.
The U.S. is now the largest producer of oil and natural gas, surpassing Saudi Arabia and Russia. We are a net exporter of energy for the first time since 1957.
Established 8,764 “Opportunity Zones” to promote new jobs in low-income communities.
Poverty rates for African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans have reached new all-time lows.
In addition to all of these historical accomplishments, the President has:
Donated all of his quarterly salaries to different departments within our government,
Seen all-time highs in the stock markets on his watch,
Lowered personal and corporate tax rates, which brought trillions of investment dollars back to America, and put more money back in the pockets of working Americans,
Seen over 7 million people come off the food stamp program,
Signed the “Right to Fire” VA bill, which has seen 500 incompetent employees fired, 200 suspended, and 33 demoted,
Signed the VA “Choice” law, which allows veterans access to private medical care if their VA care is unresponsive or inadequate,
Renegotiated unfair trade deals with China, Canada, Mexico, Japan and South Korea,
Rebuilt our military,
Established the creation of the U.S. Space force, a new sixth military branch of the armed forces,
Signed the Criminal Justice reform Bill, which reforms the system by reforming sentencing for a wide range of first-time misdemeanors or by eliminating incarceration time. It also got rid of mandatory minimum sentences for felony drug offenses.
Signed the “Right to Try” law giving critically ill patients access to potentially life-saving cures,
Been the first U.S. President to meet with a leader of North Korea, and the first President to actually step foot in North Korea.
Removed thousands upon thousands of business and progress strangling federal regulations.
And many more I’m not taking the time to mention.
Pretty amazing, isn’t it?
Well, isn’t it?!
My point is…, there has been no other president in our nation’s history who can produce a list of accomplishments (in only his first three years no less) that even comes close to that of President Trump.
Promises made…, promises kept…, PLUS!
Like I said…, don’t be an “American Idiot.”
Be an informed American.
Be an American who thinks independently and thinks critically.
Be an American who can identify the true enemies of our country and our way of life and an American who will hold these enemies accountable.
Be an American who realizes that President Trump is one of the few people in Washington without an ulterior motive.
Be an American who realizes the President Trump’s only desire is to do what is best for the American people and to do what is best for America.
