Our economy, under the leadership of President Trump, is soaring, as anybody with a lick of sense understands. In a recent poll, 66% of Americans affirmed this, while just 33% disagreed that our economy was growing. This is good news, but it’s not as good as it should be.
Shockingly, 49% attribute this success to President Obama, while just 40% give President Trump the credit. My question is this: How can half of America be so deceived?
The specific reason we are doing so well is because Trump has dramatically cut Obama’s job-killing regulations. Through deregulation, Trump has singlehandedly jumpstarted our economy. The problem isn’t with his leadership, but it is with his messaging. Millions of Americans simply do not know the truth, while others simply do not want to admit the truth. They prefer to remain bitter.
For the media, stories of economic success are suborned to trivialities, as a legion of fools champion nonsense, while refusing to report stories of significance. They do this because they hate Donald Trump and refuse to give him credit for anything.
Our economic explosion in growth is the story of the decade, but it is barely mentioned by the media. Why is that? It’s because there is no legitimate way to attribute this success to Obama, and the media knows it. In fact, it’s the exact opposite.
This means it is up to you and me to tell the story. For example, Black unemployment is the lowest it has been since 1972. How is that racist? It isn’t. The tax bill, which the Democrats say will only benefit the rich, is benefitting everybody, just as President Trump said it would. How is this hurting the middle class? It isn’t. How is becoming energy independent hurting the USA? It isn’t. It is making us less dependent on Saudi Arabia. That’s a good thing—not a bad thing.
We have a great story to tell, but we are not as good as the Progressive Left at telling it. For us to maintain our positive momentum at making America great again, this has to change, and it has to change quickly. The time to stand strong for America is upon us, but we must be fearless and courageous. We have no alternative.
