President Donald Trump is leading America back to greatness. He is not a typical politician and he is not politically correct. He just believes in getting things done and running America like a business, putting successful people in the right position in his unashamed commitment of American greatness. Trump has shown in his first 100 days that he would fulfill his promises to the electorate to make America great again and he has already accomplished an impressive list of achievements.
Trump began bringing jobs back to America before he was sworn in as president, negotiating with both Ford and Carrier to stay in America. Other companies, such as Samsung, Exxon, Fiat, and Hasbro have already begun the process of returning their businesses to America to create more American jobs. Trump signed an executive order revitalizing the coal industry and approved the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone Pipeline, which will create more jobs and bring energy independence to America.
While Trump is putting American industry and the private sector to work, he is eliminating government regulations and freezing non-essential hiring throughout the federal government, including a five year ban on lobbyist. The Wall Street Journal editorial stated, “So far the Trump administration is a welcome improvement, rolling back more regulations than any president in history.” As a result, Trump has already cut the U.S. debt burden by $68 billion while the Philly Fed Index, a survey of how well manufacturers are doing, has hit its highest level since 1984. The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index is at its highest level since 2004. Economic and consumer confidence are surging.
Trump has put America’s security as a top priority. Illegal immigration is down 67 percent. Border Patrol and ICE are deporting criminals and “sanctuary cities” that harbor criminal illegal aliens face losing federal funding.
Trump reacted to Syria’s murder of woman and children. He sanctioned Iran over their missile program. He dropped a 21,600 pound bomb on the ISIS headquarters and training facility with many underground tunnels. Trump is building up a military while dealing with the nuclear threat of an unhinged leader in North Korea, which was enabled by former President Bill Clinton when he removed sanctions from North Korea on an empty promise not to seek nuclear weapons.
Trump selected Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court, who will defend freedom and protect America from judicial activism.
Trump signed an executive order to protect police officers, created a task force to reduce crime, and signed an executive order to target drug cartels.
Trump is working at a neck-breaking pace in just 100 days. He will reduce taxes, eliminate the burden of Obamacare, renegotiate NAFTA even while the Democrats continue to try to stop him with rogue judges or obstruction. Trump is leading with an agenda to Make America Great Again.
