Earlier this week the mainstream media got a wake up call when one of their own, not some conservative pundit, explained that they only hate Trump because unlike previous President’s… Trump keeps his promises!
The commentary came from liberal Brit, Piers Morgan, who has tangled with many conservatives in the past. He argued that while he doesn’t agree with everything that Trump has done, or is doing, he appreciates what the President is doing because it shows that the president is serious about keeping his promises.
Yet, there’s one thing even his most vociferous enemies – and that is a historically high volume of human beings – cannot continue to deny, and it’s this: Donald Trump delivers on his promises.
Of course, in the main, they’re not promises his opponents actually wanted him to keep, but that is beside the point.
When you win an election, you also win the right to carry out the pledges you made as a candidate. That is the inherent bedrock of democracy.
And judging Trump entirely from that perspective, he is beginning to really, REALLY deliver.
Then Morgan gave three examples from just this past week that proved his point.
First: Trump promised to ‘wipe the hell out of ISIS’.
Just this past week we heard that the Muslim terrorist organization had been driven out of Iraq and was on the verge of extinction in Syria. ISIS did nothing but grow while fighting Barack Obama, but almost as soon as Trump won the Presidency they began to collapse under the weight of his policy changes.
Second: the economy has done nothing but gain steam under President Trump’s watch, thanks in large part to his administration’s fight to repeal cumbersome and unnecessary regulations.
As Morgan points out, “Unemployment is at a 17-year low, hiring is strong – last Friday’s jobs report showed 228,000 new jobs in November – GDP expanded 3.3% in the third quarter, and the stock market keeps breaking new records.
All this after America’s supposedly leading economist Paul Krugman tweeted on election night: ‘It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. If the question is when markets will recover a first-pass is never.’
Financial experts put this success down to Trump unburdening America of many of the over-draconian and panicky regulatory barriers put in place after the 2008/9 crash.”
Third: As a candidate for President, Trump promised to move our embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This is something that has been promised by every President over the last 20+ years. Bill Clinton reneged, George W. Bush reneged, Barack Obama reneged, but Donald J. Trump followed through and kept his promise.
Finally Morgan launched into a long (but incomplete) list of other promises that Trump has kept.
These three momentous things follow a long line of promises Trump has kept.
He has moved to renegotiate NAFTA, pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, walk out of the Paris climate accord, target the Iran nuclear deal and start work on his ‘big, beautiful’ wall along the Southern border (just the threat of it has led to a 38% fall in illegal immigrants coming over that border since he was elected).
The Supreme Court even recently approved his revised and very controversial travel ban on residents of seven predominantly Muslim countries.
Again, regardless of what you think of it, this was something Trump said he’d do and he has done it…
They think he’s got ISIS on the run, illegal immigration back under control, jobs pouring back, the economy roaring again, and the cocky all-powerful media back in its box.
Love him or loathe him, Trump’s doing exactly what he told them he’d do.
This is one of those very few times that Piers Morgan has hit the nail on the head and gotten something 100% correct.
