Guest Editorial: Trump’s America is Hitting on All Cylinders

 In Trump’s America unemployment continues to set record lows. Jobs are being created at record levels and wages are rising for the first time in a decade. Perhaps the biggest economic news of the Trump administration according to the Washington Times is the growth in revenue from the tax cuts: “The federal government took in a record tax haul in April enroute to its biggest-ever monthly budget surplus, the Congressional Budget Office said, as a surging economy left Americans with more money in their paychecks — and this more to pay to Uncle Sam”. Just as the Trump Administration and Republican Leaders in Congress promised: tax cuts would benefit everyone, including government coffers. States as diverse as Connecticut and Illinois are reporting increased revenues that may save them from drastic budget cuts and potential bankruptcy. Their respective legislatures, who had proposed higher taxes as the only way to bring in more revenue, are the beneficiary of this rising economic tide. According to a poll conducted by CNN, no fan of President Trump: “57% of Americans say things are going well in the US today — up from 49% saying the same in February — which is the largest proportion to say so since January of 2007.” 

On the International front President Trump may be on the verge of the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on the Korean Crisis. Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama tried to make peace on the Korean Peninsula without results. Trump sets his sites on the conflict and real progress is finally being made. For the first time since the ceasefire in 1953, the Presidents of North and South Korea have meet face to face. In a gesture of goodwill without American concessions, North Korea has released three American prisoners. According to satellite photos they have begun dismantling the country’s only known nuclear test site, following through on a promise made by leader Kim Jong-un ahead of a potential game changing meeting with President Trump. The World knows that the Trump Administration means business. 

Legendary UCLA baseball coach John Wooden was known as the “Wizard of Westward” based on his historic 88 game winning streak. It has been suggested that if President Trump continues to add up ”wins”, he may soon be referred to as the “ Wizard of Washington.”

Meanwhile in Nancy Pelosi’s America it could not be grimmer. Everyone is a victim. Identity politics rules. Cultural appropriation is rampant. Tax cuts and $2,000 bonuses are crumbs. Washington knows best and we must have more and more government involvement in “the deplorables” daily lives, not less. John Kerry is traveling the world somehow trying to revive Obama’s apology tour and save Obama’s failed foreign policy. Restoring the elites to power is 

all that matters. Americans are finally beginning to realize how self-serving the Democrats policies have been for generations. 

The elite media is worse. The only thing that matters to them is the Mueller investigation and Stormy Daniel allegations. Facts do not matter, they only report their anti-Trump agenda. It’s easy to see why trust of the national media is at an all-time low. 

The mid-term elections loom. We must continue to support our President. He is making America safe again. He is making America first again. He is making America strong again. And yes, President Donald J. Trump is Making America Great Again.
