Since Donald Trump was elected president on Nov. 8, 2016, he has been under attack nearly every day by the left-wing news media, including CNN, MSNBC and others. House Miniority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Shumer, as well as other left wingers, distort his words, no matter what he says. These attacks are meant to obstruct and destroy Trump’s presidency.
However, Trump supporters like myself see these attacks as detrimental to our country. This losing attitude has spread like cancer throughout the country.
No other president has been “attacked” for winning the presidency. Trump is a strong leader and will fight back, no matter how he’s attacked. I don’t mind his tweeting; it’s just his way of getting his message directly to the people.
It’s evident from the presidential election that the American people don’t want socialism, communism or any other anti-American -ism ruling our country. We want our president to stand up for America, our Constitution and enforce its laws, and so far, Trump is doing a great job of that.
The Dallas Morning News (DMN) is just one paper out of many that frequently distorts Trump’s words. Here’s just one example: in the Nov. 14 paper. Its front-page headline reads, “Trump filling seats with white men.” Now, what does that imply?
I think it’s meant to make Trump look like a racist. The word “racist” is being dished out like candy these days by the left – in its desperate attempt to bring Trump down. If the DMN had printed, “Trump filling seats with black men,” I feel that would have caused thousands of protesters to march in Dallas. The truth is that presidents throughout our history choose the most qualified applicants to fill their Cabinets. Race has nothing to do with it. Trump has dealt with perhaps thousands of people of different races over his long career as a real estate tycoon. He’s perfectly qualified to pick the people he thinks are best for the job.
One of my favorite political TV personalities, Judge Jeanine Pirro, isn’t afraid to speak out against this hatred that’s working against our president. Pirro is what I call “a spitfire,” and that’s what I like about her – she’s tough! She’s a former judge and district attorney from New York state and, as such, she’s seen it all. On her Nov. 11 program, she shocked her viewers with this bold statement: “Is it dangerous to be a Trump supporter?”
Pirro said, “Well, it’s unlike anything I’ve seen in my lifetime. With conviction and an air of condescension, the left so hates Donald Trump and those who support him that they sanction the use of violence against them. They are attempting to recast our legal system without authority to do so, without legislative sanction and without judicial imprimatur.”
Pirro described how these progressives think: “The use of physical violence is legal, proper and justified if they disagree with your politics – the very ones who call you ‘fascists’ and label themselves anti-fascists (or Antifa) are changing the rules, propagating a legal theory that is not only outrageously incorrect and an affront to democracy, an outright attempt at anarchy.”
Pirro gives viewers a dose of reality on every show. Trump should be respected as our president, just as the previous 44 others before him. I believe most Americans think this way.
In spite of the negative coverage over the last year, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Oct. 25 noted a few of Trump’s accomplishments.
“I certainly think history is going to look at this president as somebody who helped defeat ISIS, who built an economy that is stronger than it’s been in several decades, who brought unemployment to a 16-year low, created over 1.7 million jobs since being elected,” Sanders said. “I think those are the things that people actually care about.”
Time will tell how successful Trump will be. Just like every other president, he deserves the chance make America great – and do it his way!
