Implementing new strategies affecting the economy, changing international trade agreements and taking on the complexities of immigration reform are only a few of the challenges facing President Trump and American society. The President not only must find solutions to many formidable problems but he must navigate through unfriendly political waters in Washington. Add to the mix that hundreds of thousands of students across this nation have received years of unchallenged liberal indoctrination, and that kind of brainwashing produces real consequences especially when a percentage believe that physical violence is a legitimate means to an end. So whatever path the President decides to take he does so within his political party that has a severe identity crisis, the opposition political party and media that desperately want him impeached and a country that is divided in a way never before seen since the Civil War.
No conservative would label President Trump as one of their own. But because the past eight years witnessed a runaway ultra liberal agenda that feared no opposition, he is accepted as a breath of fresh air and the best chance for conservatives to see at least some push back on freebies and the erosion of the U.S. Constitution.
The media is being disingenuous when they continue to tell the American people that Trump needs to be more of a unifier because he has unified Republicans and Democrats who now share a common goal of ending his Presidency. With all of this unity, Washington has certainly seen a tremendous amount of activity just not in the way of progress. No construction on that promised wall, no tax reform or getting Obamacare repealed. Unless you reside in a state of denial matching Hillary Clinton’s delusional view as to why she is not the President, you must come to the sobering conclusion that both the Democrats and a majority of Republicans want the President to fail even if by doing so harms the American people.
But which party despises the President the most? The Democrats because he foiled their plans for their glorious Democratic rule for the next thousand years? Or the Republicans because Trump doesn’t bow to Republican elites. The fact is that it is not the Democrat or Republican party but rather the survival of the “Private party” that the Washington establishment wants to protect that fuels the hatred for an outsider like Trump.
Democrats and Republicans have more in common than they have differences and both were surprised by the November 2016 election results. The strategy to politically eliminate Trump and his deplorable followers would be for congress to point fingers and stall any progress while initiating an endless parade of allegations and investigations on Trump and his team.
Under these circumstances can Trump or any President acting outside the control of the beltway bureaucrats function at the level needed to run a country? The President has his share of flaws, but his tenacious, in-your-face New York style of management is not one of them. Hailing from the rough construction industry and back stabbing boardrooms of New York will serve him well in the months ahead. Trump means business not only as a way of explaining his fortitude but in also identifying his strongest skill set which is the key to overcoming the underhanded political tactics of Washington.
Trump has a loyal base, and that loyalty will be nearly impossible for Democrats or Republicans to subvert. But Trump also needs to win the hearts of those outside his base, and he can do that by fattening up their wallets. Since Congress will not assist Trump in the creation of a strong economy, jobs, or advancement for the middle class and minorities, he must rely on public pressure to move that agenda forward.
The best assistance Conservatives can render will be to vote out of office in 2018 every Republican holding up the works. Maybe then the focus of Congress will be on the people and not themselves.
