After unexpected election, president delivers, big time
A few things come into sharp focus as the Teens wind to a close and we embark upon a new decade.
The first is that President Trump has delivered since his unexpected election.
Upon arrival, the brash billionaire with a backbone told self-serving globalists who hung the working class out to dry for decades to take a hike.
What’s happened is a monumental power shift from tone-deaf coastal elites — with their cushy lifestyles and luxury trips to Davos, on private jets of course — to the “forgotten” man, those millions of Americans who actually do the real work of keeping our nation and economy afloat.
Trump spent his career building skyscrapers, hotels and other brick-and-mortar properties around the world, employing thousands in the private sector. As a result, he’s always understood and respected construction workers and other everyday Americans who built this country.
He’s a natural fit to lead a movement that represents the working class in this decades-in-the-making populist uprising.
To the left’s dismay, he’s delivered in spades.
Three years into his presidency we’re experiencing a golden age of prosperity.
“Wages for nonsupervisory employees — who make up 82% of the workforce — are rising at the fastest rate in more than a decade,” reports the Wall Street Journal. And for the first time in memory pay increases for the bottom 25% of wage earners rose 4.5% — more than for those in the top 25%, whose wages rose by only 2.9%, according to data from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
So when far-left senators like Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., say GOP policies are only benefiting the rich, they’re either lying or woefully uninformed — you pick.
The current administration’s creation of over 7 million jobs — including 500,000 manufacturing jobs — has resulted in historically low unemployment for all. Add to it the gamechanging trade deals being renegotiated with China, finally putting America first, something that needed to be done for decades and that no prior president of either party had the chutzpah to do.
President Trump also scrapped the job-killing NAFTA, replacing it with the United States Mexico Canada Agreement, which the U.S. International Trade Commission estimates will create 177,000 jobs and add $68.2 billion to the U.S. economy.
For years, coastal elites like Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., snubbed their noses at the very same people they’re supposed to represent, the middle class, and it’s finally come back to bite them.
It’s no wonder the left is pushing its impeachment charade based on zero crimes. It’s a political tactic to distract from the roaring economy and jobs bonanza benefiting our neighbors, co-workers and families.
There’s only one problem, it won’t work. Voters are much smarter than they think.
