The Horrors and Destruction that Donald Trump Has Imposed On America...Just Kidding! Part 8

Before we start today’s discussion, let’s review my voting history: 
  • I have never voted for a Republican for President in my life. 
  • Thus, I did not vote for Trump. 
  • I have rarely voted for a Republican for national office in my life. 
A about 18 months ago, many liberals, Democrats, and millennials were besides themselves with grief and fear because their pre-ordained queen, Hillary Clinton, was not elected President. Instead, Donald Trump was elected, an individual that these same people despised, hated, and feared, an individual they felt would endanger and possibly destroy the country and our democracy. For the past year and a half they fretted, worried and lashed out at anything or anyone that even remotely smelled of Donald Trump.

Given that Trump has been in office for about 18 months, I thought, that as someone who did not vote for him, it would be a good idea to review the horror, trauma, and terrible things that Trump has subjected the country to in just eighteen month’s time. This is obviously a very sarcastic comment when you take an unbiased look at what has happened during the Trump Presidency. The many previous posts we did on this topic identified over 120 good things that have happened to America and Americans since Trump became President:

But those posts were not enough to cover the good things that have happened since the election. I found another set of ways why the country is better off since Trump came into office and thus, today we add to that list:

- The latest Bureau of Labor Statistics found that the African-American unemployment rate hit a record low in May, at 5.9% it was down an amazing .7% from the month before.

-The unemployment rate for Hispanic workers was 4.9% slightly worse than the record low of 4.8% set the month before.

- Unemployment rate for white workers dropped to 3.5%.

- Total wages were up 2.7% in April vs. the previous April.

- The unemployment rate for women was 3.6%, the lowest level since 1953.

- Those older than 24 years old without a high school diploma had an unemployment rate of 5.4%, close to the lowest level ever, while wages for this group of people was up an amazing 10% over the same time last year.

- Overall unemployment for the country is down to 3.8%, an 18 year low.

- The economy created 223,000 jobs in April, almost double the number of jobs needed to keep up with natural population growth.

- Previous months’ job estimates were raised by 15,000.

- The Atlanta Federal Reserve chapter estimates that GDP will rise an amazing 4.8% in the second quarter.

- Retail sales rose 4.7% in April, 2018 vs. April, 2017.

- In May, average hourly earnings for all private-sector employees rose by 8 cents, totaling a 71-cent increase over the year before which is the largest annual increase since 2009.

- So far, over 4 million American workers have received a pay raise and/or bonus because of the Trump tax reforms.

- Three million incremental Americans have found a job since Trump became President.

- The Consumer Confidence Index rose to 128, up from a revised 125.6 in April according to the Conference Board.

- The U.S. now has the most competitive economy in the world, according to the IMD World Competitiveness Center.

- The summit meeting between the U.S and North Korea is back on track with a tentative date of June 12, a possible first step to reining in North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

- Initial plans are underway for a Trump/Putin summit to smooth out the many difference between the U.S. and Russia.

- Shortly after freeing three American hostages from North Korea, the Trump administration successfully freed an American hostage held in Venezuela.

- Trump has signed a set of executive orders that make it much easier to fire Federal employees that do not do their jobs.

- Trump continues to hold European NATO allies accountable to their NATO promise and commitment to have their military expenditures be at least a certain percentage of their GDP with Germany agreeing with him that it was underfunding its military forces relative to the NATO requirements and dictating to its military people to increase funding requests.

Another twenty three reasons to add to the previous 120 or so reasons why the first year and a few months of the Trump Presidency has not wrought disaster on the country.

For those of you that have hated on Trump since day one, and given your obvious gross error in judgment relative to Trump, let me ask that you to do us all a favor by implementing the following changes in your behavior and attitude:
  • Chill out, tamp down your TDS affliction. No matter how much you hate Trump on a sexist, personal basis, get over it. He is the legally and duly elected President, he will be around for a while so refocus your hatred on more constructive issues and matters. You will live a lot longer if you take your hatred out of your heart and soul and devote it to something positive.
  • I would really appreciate it if some of you would apologize to the Trump voters you have disrespected in some of the grossest terms possible over the past year. You have called millions of voters racists, ignorant, stupid, Nazis, KKK members, and other horrible names simply because you disagreed with their voting choice. No American should be called such disgusting names simply because they exercised their Constitutional rights to the best of their abilities. Plus, slandering over 60 million Americans is no way to unite the country and get it focused on the real issues facing us all.
  • More personally, I would like, no I am demanding, an apology from some of you for your slanderous and disgusting name calling because in doing so, you insulted and disrespected my sister, my family members, my friends, and my co-workers who simply voted their conscience. I will defend their right to vote anyway they wanted and will no put up with your childish and vicious venom and bile directed at them, very important people in my life
  • And finally, I challenge you to read the following blog post, a post that shows quite clearly that it was hateful people like some of you and your silence during the Obama years that actually caused Trump to be elected. Thus, the people you hate for voting for Trump are actually looking back at you in the mirror:

If you were silent in the dozens of instances listed in this post then you were responsible for the very thing you hate: a Trump Presidency. Or put another way, a so far successful and productive Trump Presidency. Over 140 accomplishments in a little more than a year is not too shabby despite many of you wanting both Trump and the country to fail.
