Donald Trump

President Trump may have Just Won a 2nd Term in Office

In his first speech to the joint session of Congress, President Donald Trump delivered a stunning victory for his administration. The President held the nation and our Congress in sway for over an hour on Tuesday night while he extolled our shared American values and painted an optimistic picture of our nation’s future. It was easily the best and most influential speech he’s ever delivered, and it has made an immediate impact on our nation.

In the wake of the speech, Republican lawmakers were ebullient, marveling at the speech the President had just delivered, and speaking as if he had finally been fully embraced by the party who fought against him for so long. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was near giddy as he spoke to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer after the speech: “For people not committed to Donald Trump already, he did become presidential tonight. And I think we’ll see that reflected in high approval ratings… It was an inspirational speech, widely applauded, as you can imagine, on our side, but greeted with a lot more applause and respect on the other side than I would have anticipated.”

Democrat pundit Van Jones seemed in absolute awe that the President had the ability to rise above the fray and deliver a speech in the manner that he did. Speaking of one moment in the speech in particular, Jones said that, “He became President of the United States in that moment, period.” That moment was when the President honored the widow of slain Navy SEAL Senior Chief William “Ryan” Owens, thanking her for his sacrifice and promising her that her husband would never be forgotten.

Jones added that it was one of the most extraordinary moments in the history of American politics, and that if President Trump could find a way to deliver more moments like that over the next few years, there is no doubt that he would become a two-term President.

It’s high praise from a man who hardly ever finds reason to speak positively about a Republican.

Here’s the entire emotional exchange that brought tears to the eyes of most of America.

It wasn’t just Republicans and the pundits who were surprised at how well the President did on Tuesday night. The Democrats in attendance seemed shocked into submission as well. West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said “It sounded like the Donald Trump who is maturing into president,” before adding that he’d be happy to work with the President on seeing Congress pass immigration reform. Another Democrat Senator told CNN that it “was the best speech Trump has ever given,” before acknowledging that if the president was able to keep his cool as he did on Tuesday, the Democrats would have a very tough time fighting against his agenda.

In fact, going into the night, all of the conversation in the media was about how the Democrats might derail the speech, or how they might turn the evening into an embarrassment for the President. Instead, the Democrats were stunned into inaction, barely able to offer a few boos and a smattering of hisses. Even worse, the Democrats looked childish and small as they refused to support even the simplest of President Trump’s offerings.

For example – as the entire chamber stood to offer their support to the wife of Senior Chief Owens, the Democrats stood for a moment then sat for almost 3 minutes of cheering. The Democrats sat stone still, offering barely a glimmer of recognition for a hero and the family who lost him.

Not only did the Democrats in Congress appear to be shell-shocked by President Trump’s spectacular speech, their response actually made matters worse for them. Former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear (D-KY) delivered the Democrat rebuttal, which led to the Democrat Party being mocked as “stunty and small”… on MSNBC… by fellow liberal Rachel Maddow! GOP activist Colin Reed agreed saying, “The Democratic bench is so depleted they’ve turned to a 72-year-old former governor with absolutely no political future to give their prime-time response. They literally have no rising up-and-comer to elevate. Out-of-power, leaderless, and in the midst of a raging ideological civil war, 2017 is truly a sad time to be a Democrat.”

The President wasn’t only able to silence his Democrat critics, he was also able to rally his own supporters and likely win a few new voters to Team Trump.

The President was also able to continue pouring energy into the markets as well. On Wednesday morning the Dow spiked over 300 points and sent the market above 21,000 points for the FIRST TIME EVER. This news comes on the heels of the market hitting 20,000 for the first time ever just one month ago. Economists have already been calling this the “Trump Boom” for the last couple of months, but if the trend continues, they’ll have to find an even more glowing way to connect the President to this bull market.

As more time passes, one has to wonder if the President was right when he told Americans that “We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with the winning.” It seems that every new day simply brings more winning for President Trump, and if he can continue along the path he laid out on Tuesday night… there will most certainly be a lot more winning in our future.
