Lost in the alt-left's extreme and ruthless opposition to President Trump is the fact that he's been very busy keeping his promises and checking off items on his agenda, one by one.
Putting Judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court is just the latest fulfillment of a campaign promise. Here's what President Trump said during the ceremony in the Rose Garden.
“Over the past two months, the American people have gotten to know, respect and truly admire our newest member of the United States Supreme Court,” he said. “In Justice Gorsuch, they see a man of great and unquestioned integrity. They see a man of unmatched qualifications. And most of all, and most importantly, they see a man who is deeply faithful to the Constitution of the United States.”
President Trump kept his word and put an originalist on the U.S. Supreme Court to replace Justice Antonin Scalia. What the mainstream media will not tell you and what Trump's enemies will never admit is that this is just one of the president’s many accomplishments.
President Trump is busy bringing back jobs, making phone calls to the CEOs of companies day and night. He's gutting Obama-era regulations, and the president has said he could eliminate up to 75 percent of government rules and regulations. The war on coal is over and the red tape from the Obama administration is gone.
Illegal immigration has plummeted since Trump took the oath of office. The White House is fighting back against sanctuary cities by taking a tough stance against places that shield illegal immigrants.
President Trump has drafted a plan to defeat ISIS. His administration has sanctioned Iran over its missile program and put the rogue regime on notice. Our commander-in-chief responded to Syria's use of chemical weapons by approving a Tomahawk missile strike.
Domestically, President Trump created a task force to reduce crimes. He signed executive orders to protect police officers and to target drug cartels that poison our cities, suburbs and rural areas.
While the president is enacting his agenda every day, there's still plenty of work do. Failing to repeal and replace ObamaCare was a big misstep. Republicans need to learn from that mistake and build consensus before introducing such an important bill. And while the health care bill is not dead, Republicans are moving ahead on a massive tax reform plan.
The Republican leadership needs to come together to pass the president's budget so we can reduce spending, shrink government, rebuild the military, and get all of these things done so Americans get back to work.
While President Trump works to advance his agenda, the alt-left, propaganda, destroy-Trump media, breathlessly reports on infighting in the White House. Who knows whether or not the press has blown this out of proportion, like everything they cover. But the reality is that it's irrelevant. Whomever President Trump wants around him is his business. If you work for the president, your job is to put his agenda in place, serve him and serve the country.
There are many people and factions that want to see this president fail. Yet, he's right on the right track, and all he has to do to succeed to be popular and to win over votes in the coming elections is to keep his promises to the American people.
