If your angst against President Trump is based on fact, on real issues, perhaps we can have a dialogue; however, if your angst is merely baseless hatred fueled by leftist news outlets and party “loyalty,” all I can do is offer you a moist tissue!
Really, I don’t understand the vitriol of the left where it concerns President Trump. There have been presidents that I haven’t liked, but I could give lucid, concrete reasons why I took exception to them; in every case, I could write a list of issues. Some people may not have agreed with my list, but no one could say I was blindly against them just because.
So, I decided to challenge those who blindly spew hatred for this president with some questions.
Is it the great economy that you hate?
Are you upset that the unemployment rate in all sectors is lower than it has been in over 45 years?
Perhaps your angst is derived from the fact that both friend and foe respect us more than they have in decades? They may not like us more, but they do respect us.
How about this – a few months ago it looked as if we might be on the verge of nuclear war with NOKO and now they may be getting a McDonald’s Franchise. Isn’t it better to find our president sitting across the table from Kim Jung Un having a chat rather than sabre rattling with the very real possibility of trading nukes?
The DJIA has added over $4T in value, is that a problem?
How about the tax reform and the repeal of the forced ACA mandate?
What of deporting 36% more MS-13 gang members; is that a bad thing?
I guess if you think that illegally entering our country is okay, you must hate the crackdown on “sanctuary cities.”
Are you upset because we are finally curbing the wasteful spending in every Federal Department, including the military, not to mention having his presidential salary donated to charities?
Does saving babies from being murdered by the abortion industry largely on the taxpayer’s dime have your underwear in a wad?
Let’s see, improving the VA by allowing senior officials the ability to fire non-performing employees is somehow bad?
I have to believe that minimizing ISIS to the point that we rarely hear of them these days must be awful for you?
Do you find fault with supporting Israel, our closest ally, by establishing an Embassy in Jerusalem?
Are you concerned that some previous officials that you worship may actually face criminal charges for things you or I would have been jailed for long ago?
I could go on and on, but I think you get my point. You may not like some of these things. However, you certainly understand that I can list what I like about this man, and I ask again; which of these things is worthy of the endless vitriol I see daily?
Worse yet, if the truth be known, would you not have celebrated like crazy if Bill Clinton or Barack Obama had been able to accomplish some of the items above?
To prove out that last point, why is it when Clinton and Obama called for better border security you applauded them?
How can anyone reconcile Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for merely taking the oath of office and giving a few speeches as opposed to Trump sitting down across from a real foe and opening real dialogue?
I have barely scratched the surface of a very successful president, a man who has accomplished more in a year and a half than the last four presidents combined.
So here is my challenge, put the blind hate aside and ask yourself, “what has this president done that offends me?”
