In the March 28 edition of The Vindicator, a letter from Russ Nalepa raised concerns about a suggestion for a park to be named after President Trump. What really caught my attention was that the author of the letter said he “can’t think of anything that he (Trump) has done for America”. Additionally, the letter requested a list of what Trump had done for us. I would like to accommodate, but due to the limited space here my list is abbreviated. A full list is certainly available.
President Trump, when it comes to messaging, can be pompous and demeaning, but he takes everyone directly, which is refreshing. Anyone who does not believe they love our country, defends our flag and will defend our country to the end, is sorely mistaken and simply refuses to accept the truth. He doesn’t snuggle up to our opponents, or our allies, when it comes to what’s best for America, as long as it’s right.
The writer blamed the COVID-19 loss of over 500,000 of our citizens on President Trump, for failing to admit there was a “problem” when the pandemic struck and therefore did nothing to this subject. Even Trump’s harshest critics admit that “Operation Warp Speed” was a huge success.
On foreign affairs, the letter appears to suggest that Trump befriended North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un and called him his “favorite dictator.” It’s all part of Trump’s negotiating tactics (maybe he should read “The Art of the Deal”). Let us all remember that he called Kim Jong Un a “Little Rocket Man”. It does not seem very endearing to me.
Here is my abridged list of President Trump’s accomplishments, before the pandemic:
Unemployment reached its lowest level in 50 years at 3.5%, including record levels of unemployment for blacks, Hispanics, Asians, veterans, native Americans and the disabled; raised nearly 7 million food stamps; America First has taken strong action to combat unfair trade practices; refreshing support for American farmers; The United States has become energy independent; military rebuilt; a law signed to improve the care of our veterans; and supported legislation to end late abortions.
