Trump Wins Biggest Battle Of His Presidency And The Majority Of The Media Missed It
Trump Wins Biggest Battle Of His Presidency And The Majority Of The Media Missed It – MSM And Protesters Play Right Into His Hands by Susan Duclos
Many may have thought the biggest challenge facing Donald Trump when he became president, being an outsider that had never held a political office, would be learning to navigate the world of politics, to negotiate with Democrats who made no bones that they would fight his agenda tooth and nail, to avoid the knife in the back by RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) that would do everything in their power to reign President Trump in, but those were not, are not, and will not, be the biggest battles.
The biggest battle was convincing his supporters, those that fought long and hard during the primaries, even harder in the general election, and those that pulled the lever for him in the voting booth in November, voters and supporters that had been let down by politicians decade after decade never keeping their campaign promises, but who were willing to jump back into the process and give Trump a shot, albeit warily, hoping, praying he wasn’t just more of the same.
His second biggest battle was convincing those that simply couldn’t bring themselves to trust anyone running for office, anybody jumping into politics, after having been betrayed time and again, but who truly wanted him to be “real,” wanted him to keep his campaign vows, that he really did say what he meant and meant what he said.
The first week of the Trump presidency has been a whirlwind of Executive Orders and Presidential Memorandums, with controversial actions on “extreme vetting” for refugees from “state sponsors of terrorism,” and “countries of concern,” as was listed in the the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Improvement Act of 2015, signed by Barack Obama.
Before getting into the number of ways that Trump has exposed Democrats, the MSM, and RINOs as partisan hacks more concerned about “party line” and appeasement than they are about America,, in his first week as President, which we also consider huge wins in and of themselves, lets take a quick look at reactions not from his detractors, enemies or the MSM (the opposition party!) but from his supporters and those that didn’t support him, but are now fully behind him because of his immediate actions.
After having visited many forums, comment sections and social media, we see the comment below from an ANP reader, to be representative of those that were not #NeverTrump’ers, but who simply could not in good conscience bring themselves to trust any campaign promises from any candidate during the election cycle:
“well it looks like i have some crow to eat and apologies to send out so far it looks like president trump is not a chump he does not appear to be the best false choice we have ever seen and its starting to look like the genuine article, the real mccoy, and the man who will make america great again…..in his short time in office he has raised my flagging spirit and has made me believe that there just might be a chance for my beloved america to be great godly and good again and from now on i will stand with this great man and pray the father shows him all the right moves to make at the proper time …i am sorry i was so vocal here on this forum and that i was so jaded that i could not see the truth……………….”
Of course he was told no apologies were necessary, no one could blame voters, betrayed in the past, for being suspicious, and in subsequent comments by that same reader, we see that Trump’s actions in his first week has brought him unqualified support from those that previously had doubts.
Moving along to Trump’s “heartland”supporters, we have to acknowledge that while the majority of the MSM is busy attacking Trump for his temporary suspension of refugees from nations with high levels of terrorist activity, Reuters did what others would not, they asked Trump supporters how they felt about it.
The relaxed reaction among the kind of voters who drove Trump’s historic upset victory – working- and middle-class residents of Midwest and the South – provided a striking contrast to the uproar that has gripped major coastal cities, where thousands of protesters flocked to airports where immigrants had been detained.
In the St. Louis suburb of Manchester, Missouri, 72-year-old Jo Ann Tieken characterized the president as bringing reason into an overheated debate.
“Somebody has to stand up, be the grown up and see what we can do better to check on people coming in,” she said. “I’m all for everybody to stop and take a breath … Just give it a chance.”
Others highlighted what is being seen in Europe as reason to support Trump’s actions, another stated “A country is not a country if it doesn’t have borders.” Another points out “I think it’s just too easy to get into our country and stay illegally. I feel like he is going to – to the best of his abilities – make a lot of things he said happen.”
CONTRACT WITH THE AMERICAN VOTER
Everything over the last week that Democrats have howled over, the mainstream media has pitched a fit about and RINOs have criticized, is all listed in Donald Trump’s Contract With the American Voter.
The reason Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer is crying, and John McCain and Lindsey Graham are showing how “weak on immigration” they are, and the MSM are hyperventilating over Trump’s latest EO, isn’t because of the content, it is because he is keeping his promises made in the contract embedded below.
