LETTER TO THE EDITOR: If you hate Trump, you hate America

Let’s look at some of the magnificent accomplishments and possible future accomplishments of Trump’s first year and a half.

The economy — President Obama is the only president in the American history to never have one year of a 3 percent of GDP growth and he was there eight years!. In his last year, the GDP was a sick 1.6 percent. He famously said “This economy is the new normal, what is Trump going to do to bring these manufacturing jobs back, wave a magic wand?”

No, Mr. President just pass the largest tax cut and reform in the American history and rescind you’re your odious regulations on business and get out of the way. Obama lost 200,000 manufacturing jobs, President Trump has created 400,000 new manufacturing jobs in just one and a half years in office.

The last quarter’s GDP grew at 4.1 percent since upgraded to 4.2 percent. During his campaign he said he will create a 3 percent GDP. The economist called him crazy, unhinged, irresponsible, said it cannot be done.

Unemployment among blacks, and Hispanics-American is the lowest in the American history and the lowest among women in 16 years soon to also be the lowest in American history. We are at full employment there are 669,000 jobs available but only 613,000 unemployed to fill them.

Trump’s economy has added over 3,700,000 new jobs in just his first year and a half. Trump has already convinced the EU to reduce our $151 billion annual trade deficit. The EU is reducing their tariffs on American goods by 52 billion dollars a year already with more to come. He just completed a new trade agreement with Mexico and Canada, the new USMCA trade agreement getting us out from under the disastrous NAFTA that was a such a huge disadvantage to the United States. This will lead to thousands of new jobs and billions annually coming back to the United States.

We have a $532 billion annual trade deficit with China, which the president says “will not stand.”

If he is successful in further reducing unfair trade practice with the world against us, he will have done what no other president has even tried and will bring about years of prosperity and growth. America will succeed beyond our wildest dreams.

We are now the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas as soon as we build new storage facilities and oil refineries. We will be independent of Middle East oil supplies and prices. Trump accomplished this by completely reversing the Obama energy policy. I lost track of the thousands of new coal jobs in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

If you hate the man whose policies did all this, then I submit you also hate America, because everything I just said, is good for America and Americans and none of it would have happened with Clinton continuing four more years of the disastrous Obama policies.

Judges- Both Supreme Court judges and all his federal judge appointments have been judges who will interpret law as written in the constitution. They will not write law from the bench. No more using the court to make laws you can not get through congress. President Trump has made more federal judge appointments in his first year and a half that any president in history.

President Trump ended the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, which by the way guaranteed a nuke in 10 years, which Iran never signed! He got us out of the Paris Climate Accord whose stated goal was to reduce the earth’s temperature by one-half of the degree by the year 2100.

By the way, China and India were exempt from participating for 30 years. No negative impact on the economies of the two largest polluting countries in the world but there sure would have been on ours.

President Trump got three Americans released from North Korean prisons. We are now getting back our fallen Korean War heroes after 70 years. No other American president was able to do that either.

He is attempting to get North Korea to give up their nuclear ambition through negotiation. If he is successful in that endeavor, he will be recognized as one of the America’s greatest presidents. Won’t that drive the left crazy?

One thing I can guarantee, President Trump will never allow North Korea to have the capacity to deliver a nuke on an American city. He will do whatever it takes to prevent that. Our veterans can now be seen at a private hospital. No more waiting six months to be seen at a veterans hospital and maybe dying first.

He has fulfilled or tried to fulfilled every campaign promise. Despite all of the early successes of this president, the left still hates him, results be dammed. There is no way the left loves America when they hate the man whose policies have brought about all these wonderful results. He actually is making America great again!
