It’s Trump’s fault!

Yes, my friends…, if anything, and I mean if ANYTHING happens that isn’t good, it’s President Trump’s fault…, and NOTHING he does is allowed to even be considered good.

I’m really getting bored with this liberal blame game that seems to be on a never-ending loop.

Can we just assume that President Trump is to blame for everything from now on so you liberals can just shut up?

I mean, your litany of lame excuses and shifting of all of the blame from yourselves onto President Trump is so disingenuous, very tiresome, and quite sickening as well.

We see a seemingly never-ending parade of liberal mayors…,

democrat congresspeople, and, of course, the liberal propaganda media, blaming President Trump for all of their, and all of the world’s problems.

But remember, President Trump has only been in politics the last 3½ years.

So, racism wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Social justice wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Police brutality wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Crime rates, shootings and murders weren’t an issue in any of our big cities prior to 2017?

Criminal justice reforms weren’t an issue prior to 2017?

Economic opportunity in depressed areas of our country and our cities wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

In fact, these were all existing issues prior to 2017.

These have all been existing issues prior to 2017…, AND FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS!

The fact is, President Trump has done more to address these issues in the last 3½ years than had been done in the prior 50 years!

And I’m talking about actual positive actions…, not just lip service or promises.

You don’t believe me?

Let’s take a look at just a few of President Trump’s accomplishments.

 

Our economy, under President Trump’s direction, saw historic lows for African American unemployment and African American youth unemployment, as well as historic low unemployment rates for Latinos, Asians, and Women.

 

Nearly 8 million Americans have been lifted off of food stamps.  Indeed, the latest data from the Department of Agriculture shows that 7.7 million fewer Americans receive food stamps now than did when Trump entered the White House.

 

The poverty rate has fallen to its lowest level in nearly two decades, according to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau.

 

The First Step Act was promoted and signed into law by President Trump. This law shortens mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenses. It also eases a federal “three strikes” rule, which currently imposes a life sentence for three or more convictions, and issues a 25-year sentence instead. Most consequentially, it expands the “drug safety-valve,” which would give judges more discretion to deviate from mandatory minimums when sentencing for nonviolent drug offenses.

Beyond sentencing reform, the First Step Act includes provisions that will improve conditions for current prisoners and address several laws that increased racial disparities in the federal prison system.

“We’re all better off when former inmates can receive and re-enter society as law-abiding, productive citizens,” Trump said in remarks endorsing the bill. “And, thanks to our booming economy, they now have a chance at more opportunities than they’ve ever had before.”

 

Opportunity Zones were created under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and signed into law by President Trump.  The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA,) known for creating Opportunity Zones, is often celebrated for its potential to move billions of dollars into low-income communities. However, there remains an open question as to whether this program will ultimately serve to add value, or extract values, from these communities.  Opportunity Zones (OZs) are defined as “economically-distressed communities where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment.” First conceived in April of 2018, OZ plans are now in place for communities in all 50 states this year.

 

President Trump signed a bill that will permanently provide more than $250 million a year to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), along with dozens of other institutions that serve large shares of minority students.  “When I took office, I promised to fight for HBCUs, and my administration continues to deliver,” Trump said. “A few months ago, funding for HBCUs was in jeopardy. But the White House and Congress came together and reached a historic agreement.”

 

H.R.1927: African American Civil Rights Network Act of 2017.  This act recognizes the importance of the African American civil rights movement and those who made sacrifices for it. It authorizes the National Park Service to create a US Civil Rights Network, tying together relevant operations within the Service, that will be tasked with coordinating and facilitating projects to commemorate the history of that movement. The Network will operate for seven years, tending to relevant events and historical sites and developing and disseminating new educational materials on the issue.

 

H.R.1242: 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act.  This bill commemorates the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first Africans in the English colonies in Virginia in 1619. It creates a 15-member commission, composed of government officials, members of civic societies, and historians, to be appointed within 120 days. The commission will plan, develop, and carry out activities recognizing and highlighting African-American history since that point in time, and it will be authorized to provide grants of up to $20,000 to support related activities at all levels.

 

H.R.267: Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park Act of 2017.  In 1992, the federal government recognized several sites associated with the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., as a collective national historic site. This bill adds one building, the former headquarters of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference that King co-founded, and upgrades the collective site to national park status—the first such entity in Georgia.

 

Presidential Proclamation 115: To Take Certain Actions under the African Growth and Opportunity Act and for Other Purposes.  This proclamation most significantly reverses Obama-era decisions to deny the African nations of Gambia and Swaziland duty-free trade access to American markets under the act named in the proclamation’s title. That access is contingent on maintaining or improving political freedoms and human rights standards.

 

H.R.2989: Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act.  This bill recognizes Douglass’s exceptional rise from slavery to the forefront of the American civil rights movement, as well as his vital role in abolitionism, contributions to the Union in the Civil War, and service in national government. It affirms that all Americans would benefit from learning more about and following the examples laid out by Douglass. The act creates a commission to plan and carry out federal activities to commemorate the 200th anniversary of his 1818 birth.

 

And there has never been a bigger supporter of the safety of American citizens, law enforcement, and our first responders, in The White House, than President Trump.  The lawlessness we see in our large, liberal, cities is a result of opposition to President Trump’s policies, not because of them.

Regarding New York City, specifically, Julia Musto of Fox News reports that, “Dan Bongino blasts liberal mayors blaming COVID-19 and Trump for violence: ‘This is pathetic.’”

“Liberal mayors’ attempts to blame violence over the Fourth of July weekend on the coronavirus and the Trump administration is ‘grotesque and pathetic,’ former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent Dan Bongino said Tuesday.”

“In an interview on ‘Fox & Friends,’ Bongino specifically called out Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.”

“The Democrat-run cities both saw spikes in violent crime over the holiday weekend. According to the Chicago Police Department, there were 87 people shot and 17 killed from July 2 to July 5. There were at least 44 shooting incidents and 10 dead in New York City as the Big Apple saw its surge in violence continue.”

‘“I heard Mayor Lightfoot in Chicago also trying to pin this on [President] Donald Trump somehow. How was this Donald Trump? And again, it was racist, of course. Everything is racist. God forbid you call out the fact that young Black children are being shot in the head,’ he remarked.”

‘“It’s not President Trump that did this. It’s that guy in City Hall, Bill de Blasio — your Communist mayor who has failed you and — as I said on this program and others, repeatedly for years now — people will die because of the arguments going on over public safety,’ Bongino concluded. ‘And, tragically, I was correct.’”

So, after decades upon decades of inaction and ineffectiveness by the “do nothing” political establishment, democrats and republicans, we are now told that all of these problems are President Trump’s fault, and that all of these politicians who have overseen these problems for decades and decades now suddenly have all the answers.

Please…, don’t be an “American Idiot.”

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.”

aamidiot 11

The funniest poll response I see show that only 55%, or so, of Americans approve of President Trump’s handling of the economy!

Really?!

So 45% of Americans, according to these polls, don’t approve of the way President Trump is handling the economy?!

Seriously?!

He has only set every possible, positive, measurable, record regarding the economy in the history of our country!

aamidiot 2

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.

aamidiot 10

aamidiot 7

Don’t really care what’s going on…, and they just hate President Trump.

Are just plain ignorant and/or stupid.

aamidiot 8

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!”

aamidiot 3

aamidiot 6

aamidiot 5

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.

aamidiot 9

aamidiot 10

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.

President Trump’s accomplishments…, America’s best kept secrets!

If you haven’t tuned into FOX for the news from time to time, or watched/listened to a Trump rally…, you may not be aware of any or many of President Trump’s accomplishments for our country.

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is not prone to give President Trump credit for accomplishing anything, or airing anything that might be construed as positive in nature.

In case you haven’t heard…, President Trump’s list of accomplishments, so far, is long and historic in nature.

Here we go!

7 million new jobs have been created since President Trump was elected.

An all-time record of more than 158.5 million Americans are employed.

There are 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 youth unemployment rate has reached the lowest rate in nearly 50 years.

Removed thousands upon thousands of business and progress strangling federal regulations.

And I’m sure there more that I failed to mention.

Perhaps the most underappreciated and under-reported accomplishment is the end of our dependence on Middle Eastern oil.  This is a game changer regarding national security, our economy, and our foreign policy capabilities.

Pretty amazing, isn’t it?
