We can go back to the explosive job creation, rising sales and overall prosperity we had before the pandemic. We can have freedom and economic opportunities, and resist resistance to culture and censorship. We can put annus horribilis, 2020, behind us and make America great again, again. We can do all that – if we make the right choice on November 3rd.
The New York Post approves President Donald J. Trump for re-election.
Elections are still on the economy, but never more so than this year.
So a reminder: Until the fire is necessary for fight against coronavirus, the unemployment rate was 3.5 percent, the lowest in half a century. African American unemployment was 6.8 percent, the lowest figure since 1972.
Adults out of the workforce for years found new perspectives; for 17 months of Trump’s tenure, there were 1 million more job openings than unemployed people.
That has increased wages. For the first time in a decade, wage growth exceeded 3 percent year-over-year. He also restricted the wealth gap. Between 2016 and 2019, real median incomes increased the most, 9 percent, for those without a high school diploma. Real median incomes decreased 2.3 percent for those with a college degree, mostly because older workers retired, according to the Federal Consumer Finance Reserve Survey.
How did President Trump do it? First, trust the free market. He advocated reducing the corporate tax rate to a figure more in line with the rest of the industrialized world. He cut cumbersome regulations, especially those slammed while President Obama was going through the door. It has simplified the permitting process which would delay infrastructure projects for years, sometimes decades.
An Joe Biden administration would be appreciative of a socialist left that sees the opportunity to rebuild the nation in its vision, one more dependent on government debt. Consider Biden’s dance on fracking – against this for his party, in favor of this in general because he knows what positive force has been for Pennsylvania. What position would I have in the office?
Trump also rejected the globalist axiom that trade and unrestricted immigration were better for Americans. The United States has lost 3.7 million jobs in China since 2001, according to the Institute for Economic Policy. And this undermining of our workers with foreign labor on good terms has done nothing to encourage openness and democracy in Beijing. China’s authoritarianism is exacerbated only by concentration camps for Uyghurs, repressions in Hong Kong and the closure of independent churches. The nation remains a manipulative planned economy that devalues its currency and exploits its trade deficit.
In addition, the president acknowledged that unlimited illegal immigration was unfair to American workers, a common sense belief held by right-wingers such as Bernie Sanders.
Biden would reopen the border gates, and by all appearances he would return to “normalization” with China – a word for them eating our lunch.
Nationally, President Trump has remitted the excesses of previous administrations.
His Department of Education has changed Obama’s performance by turning university bureaucrats into star judges in cases of sexual assault, with no rights for the defendants. He was encouraged to choose the school – a job in progress that Biden would have suffocated because of his loyalty to teachers ’unions. Trump has passed criminal justice reform, releasing those keys far beyond the point of a reasonable punishment. He reasoned well with the permissiveness of politicians in cities like Portland to outlaw its streets.
He defended the pride of American values against those who slandered our entire nation as a racist enterprise.
Most importantly, throughout his time in office and culminating with the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s judicial appointments promise to curb the left-wing movement of the courts and the activism that Democrats have come to count. The left has realized by legal decisions what it could not through legislation.
A new culture of judges and judges promises to decide the law on its constitutionality, not through activism.
Joe Biden tried to make this election based on the coronavirus, but it is clear that he would do something different, except to trigger new blocks – a strategy that the WHO now discourages.
Trump is criticized for his first handling of the virus, but his institution of a travel ban and aid to states has certainly saved lives. The same perfect retrospective that the media expects from the president rarely applies to others Consider this Governor Cuomo wrote an authoritative book about its response to COVID-19, even though New York’s death toll is higher than that of any other state. And because he’s a Democrat, the media is letting him escape!
Today, those who are infected with the coronavirus survive at much higher rates. We are likely to have a vaccine in the coming months, long before what many experts have thought possible. The media doesn’t want to acknowledge it, but it’s all thanks to the “speed of war” policy instituted by the White House.
In foreign policy matters, President Trump has repeatedly embarrassed conventional wisdom. After the previous administrations had promised but did not move our embassy to Jerusalem, it did, and, despite the decision-makers, nothing happened.
The Obama administration has tried to co-opt Iran with bundles of money, which the theocratic regime used to sow chaos throughout the region, sparking unrest in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and the West Bank. The Trump administration has cut the money, killed the architect of the terror campaign, Qasem Soleimani, and, despite the condemnations, the world has become safer. The result? The Arab nations have increasingly accepted Israel, signing historic peace agreements.
As promised, Trump didn’t engage us in new foreign wars, and he pulled us out of the old ones. He cajoled Mexico to deal with immigration caravans from Central America, and successfully pushed NATO allies to pay more for their commitments. When journalists write that the United States has “lost its position in the world,” it usually means our situation at the Davos cocktail party. For the rest of us, it is clear that Trumpism is focused on finding what is best for our country.
Here’s the part on Twitter. This document has, prior to the 2016 election and often for his term, lamented President Trump’s habit of speaking out before he thinks about it. Trump himself admitted in an interview with Barstool Sports in July, “It was in the old days before that, write a letter and say,‘ This letter is really bad, ’put it on your desk and come back tomorrow and say, “Oh, I’m glad I didn’t send it. But we don’t do that with Twitter.”
He is vain and thin. It can’t change, and none of what we say prevents those impulses – even if we recognize that, given the frequency with which Democrats have pushed discredited theories about Russian collusion and insulting all their actions, Trump can be forgiven for being angry. Twitter gives him an unfiltered platform to push and present his side to the American people.
We can’t just warn that a president who lowers the temperature instead of pouring gasoline on every fire will have a happier nation (and a higher approval rating).
The question is what matters most: words or actions? The media is hugely fixated on Trump’s tweets and impromptu remarks, without ever learning the lesson that most of the time, he’s just reflecting on. In his support, we have chosen to focus on the actions and successes of President Trump. He kept his promises.
As this campaign has made clear, Joe Biden is a leading candidate for the Democratic Party. He rarely takes questions, sticks to his speeches, puts a stop to the day at the end of the 9 o’clock hour. The party’s left-wing aspirants, AOC and the Squad, were salivating at the possibility of pushing their agenda. Kamala Harris measures and tends. Whatever moderate impetus Joe Biden may have, expect him to evaporate quickly into office – especially if there’s a blue Congress united behind him.
President Trump will not seek to rebuild the country. He is confident that America, given the support, but not the interference, will recover. He, in short, does not put in the way. Really this is the best choice for the United States.
Also, it has to really mark Hollywood.
