Millions of Americans have begun the process of inoculation, leading to an eventual reality where COVID-19 becomes a bad memory. Along with the brilliant government researchers and innovative private sector pharmaceutical companies, President Trump deserves enormous credit for his inspiring leadership of Operation Warp Speed.
Geographically, Trump gained vote share in each of America’s four largest cities (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston) in 2020 vs. 2016. President Trump harnessed diplomacy combined with toughness toward Iran to forge truly historic new ties in the region.
The 2020 agreement among Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain represents a massive breakthrough, one that encouraged similar pacts with Morocco and Sudan. The rally from the spring lockdown lows defied all predictions, and included massive surges in home and automobile sales, as pickup truck purchases soared to all-time highs.
The U.S. stock market roared back far higher than the indices of Japan, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Simply put, in 2020 the United States was an island of growth amid an economically stagnant world.
This success led to the Phase Two agreement with China as well, continuing the process of holding Beijing to account for its massive abuses of America via product dumping, industrial espionage, and a dearth of trade reciprocity. As made clear by the December 2019 bombshell “Afghanistan Papers,” published by the Washington Post, Trump ’s predecessors misled our citizens while wasting precious American lives and treasure during that pointless two-decade war.
Despite howls from the “America Everywhere” foreign policy establishment inside the D.C. Beltway, Trump ’s deal to end the Afghan war has won rare, broad, bipartisan support among voters. Instead of wasteful and unsuccessful mass invasions or grandiose commitments to “nation-building,” this president used surgical strikes to eradicate threats to our security.
Though his unorthodox and sometimes frenetic approach confounds his critics, Trump ’s disruptive leadership remained highly effective in 2020, even as our country and his administration faced many unwelcome challenges. Whatever the future holds for him, the 45th U.S. president compiled a record of achievement over these last four years that is impressive and historic.

And thanks to our efforts, many drug companies are freezing or reversing planned price increases. Increased our coal exports by 60 percent; U.S. oil production recently reached all-time high.
United States is a net natural gas exporter for the first time since 1957. Confirmed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Protecting Americans from terrorists with the Travel Ban, upheld by Supreme Court. Imposed tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum to protect our national security.
Imposed tariffs on China in response to China’s forced technology transfer, intellectual property theft, and their chronically abusive trade practices. Improved vetting and screening for refugees, and switched focus to overseas resettlement.
There's no doubt we live in a hyper-volatile election arena, with people so easily angered and even embittered by those who differ from them. Please remind those in your sphere of influence that uninhibited voting rights are basic American liberties, through which we even agree to disagree agreeably.
Whether the issue is the presidency or a proposition, we must protect and encourage that freedom of exercise and expression in elections, without inhibiting or belittling others in sharing their opinions or casting their votes. Then Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich didn't agree with Clinton either, but they all fought to better our country.
By August of this year, Breitbart News published a six-page document detailing all the successes of his administration. And on the Family Research Council website, you can read a whopping 12 pages of Trump's accomplishments.
Also withdrew from the job-killing Paris climate agreement, which would have cost the U.S. nearly $3 trillion and led to 6.5 million fewer industrial sector jobs by 2040. Stopped the insane vassal-lord dysfunctional and lopsided China-U.S. relationship, confronting China's unfair trade practices after years of Washington looking the other way, including forced technology transfers, unfair licensing practices and intellectual property theft.
Reached record low unemployment rates for African-American, Hispanic and Asian-Americans prior to the pandemic and returning now to the policies to resurrect them. Enacted changes to the Medicare 340B program, saving seniors an estimated $320 million on drugs in 2018 alone.
Appointed three amazing and scholarly justices to the U.S. Supreme Court who will serve and aid our country for decades to come: Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett. Chaired meeting of the 73rd General Session of the United Nations discussing the worldwide drug problem with international leaders, and signed the Initiative to Stop Opioid Abuse and Reduce Drug Supply and Demand, introducing new measures to keep dangerous drugs out of our communities, including $6 billion in new funding to fight the opioid epidemic in our communities and at our borders.
Built up and bolstering all U.S. military branches around the world and defeating ISIS and other extremists, killing ISIS leader all Baghdadi, Qassem Soleimani, Hamza bin Laden, Passim alarm, and freeing from captivity more than a dozen American hostages from all over the world. Built up and bolstered America's standing and strength in the International Community: Withdrew from shady Iran nuclear deal, moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, initiated Israel-UAE (and other surrounding nations) accord, providing more stability and commerce in the Middle East.
Held the Cuban regime accountable for political oppression and human rights abuses. Provided $86.5 billion in funding for the VA, which is the agency's largest dollar amount in history.
Whether we accept it, it's the truth: Trump has done more in 47 months then Joe Biden did in 47 years as a senator and vice president. Even worse, what's at stake is the dismantling of our founders' republic and an even greater rapid descent down the slippery slope of nanny state socialism.
They want to snatch up our savings And quick as a wink Jump back on their bandwagon To return to sanctuary cities and progressive stink. They rally their henchmen To dismantle our founders' virtues Their plans and ploys are obvious When they topple U.S. statues.
In my previous responsibilities in the business world, one requirement was absolutely imperative. Last year, I attended a “save Goodyear” meeting chaired by U.S. Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala.
I had never met or talked to Jones, but after his opening remarks concerning the Goodyear closure, one thought kept going through my head. As a matter of fact, he couldn’t control the meeting or the local politicians in attendance.
Hopefully, the citizens of the state of Alabama will vote Jones out of office along with his millions of dollars of campaign money contributed by Hollywood and other liberal donors. I, quite frankly, was surprised at the results, because I listen to the negative daily drumbeat of the liberal national media toward Trump.
Trump has been called a racist, but facts don’t support that opinion, which I believe is based on nothing but innuendos. Here are the facts concerning Trump and the African American community as reported by Farah Stock man, member of the editorial board of the New York Times.
The lowest-paid 25% of Americans had a 4.5% income boost in November 2019, which outpaces a 2.9% gain in earnings for the country’s highest-paid workers. This benefits African Americans because many, according to Associated Press research cited in 2018 by USA TODAY, are in low-paying jobs.
In 2018, Trump signed the groundbreaking First Step Act, a criminal justice reform bill that enacted reforms that made our justice system fairer and helps former inmates return to society. More than 90% of those benefiting from the retroactive sentencing reductions in the First Step Act are African Americans.
The Pledge to America’s Workers has resulted in employers committing to train more than 4 million Americans. Reauthorization since 2016, authorizing more than $1 billion for states each year to fund vocational and career education programs.
Considering those accomplishments, it is puzzling that black leaders continue to march in lockstep with the Democrats. Under Trump ’s leadership, in 2018 the U.S. surpassed Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world’s largest producer of crude oil.
The Trump administration made a deal with the European Union to increase U.S. energy exports to Europe. Other accomplishments include a dozen hostages freed, moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, initiating historic tax cut legislation for Opportunity Zones and fulfilling his campaign promise to improve the Veterans Administration, just to name a few.
Trump has achieved many of his goals, while surviving a corrupt impeachment investigation, hostility by a liberal press and a continuing pandemic of epic proportions.
