Suddenly some in the media, not all just some, are grudgingly admitting that President Trump is adequately dealing with the crises in Texas and Florida. President Trump went to the scene and displayed strong leadership, he was there, he saw for himself the actions taken on the ground, he participated, even if it was primarily as a photo op, in the distribution of food and supplies and he brought a sense of competence to the government’s aid to those in need.
President Trump also made a deal with the democrats to raise the debt ceiling and to approve money to help Texas get past the damage done by the hurricane. We now may need more money to help Florida out.
President Trump cut a deal with the democrats and got what he wanted, the republicans were angered that the president went around them. The president is looking for results, not politics, he knows you have to give a little to get a little. The democrats on their own can’t accomplish anything, the republicans on their own can’t accomplish anything even with their majority in both houses.
The President is a deal maker; he can get things approved with help from both sides. He may not get what he promised, but he can start the ball rolling in the direction he promised by getting some of what he wants and giving up a little of this or a little of that.
The media is grudgingly not condemning him for his actions in Texas or his deal with the democrats. The media has been punching, kicking, and biting at the President since last November when he won the election. They’re tired of punching like a punch drunk boxer and their audience is tired of their cheap shots and low blows.
The media’s credibility is shot, what they say has little impact any more. They don’t know how to condemn him for doing the right thing in a national emergency such as what we saw in Texas and what we will see in Florida over the next couple of weeks.
The media was a joke last November and they’ve fallen even lower with their unethical and pitiful attempts to condemn the President since.
Some of President Trump’s actions and decisions since last November have been commendable, some have been questionable and some have been stupid, but all in all he’s done an excellent job in spite of the media and democrats and even republicans taking constant cheap shots at him.
Maybe we’re at a turning point in his administration, not that he’s gotten any better, but that the cheap shots have slowed down because they have little to no effect.
Maybe because the media can’t hide his performance from the public with social media and the obvious performance that’s visible from the video of him in Texas doing what he does in a way that can’t be covered up by using the word ‘Russia’.
Trump today is the same Trump that we saw last November. The media is a joke and has little impact on what the public thinks. Trump is still standing and the media has dropped to their knees from fatigue and a lack of credibility.
The successful deal with the democrats is a new tactic that can be a very effective tool for the President. The republicans have shown themselves as ineffective by themselves, but there are enough republicans and democrats that can become a majority for the right legislation that can be passed with the leadership of the President.
That’s why I voted for him and that’s why a lot of other people voted for him too. Trump doesn’t follow the rules, but then who said the rules were right to begin with?
I’ll take a failed businessman over a successful politician in public office any day, and President Trump is a successful businessman so we are that much better off.
