The double edged sword: President Trump

Trump berates his way through year one

For an entire year, we’ve been living under the complete bigotry of Donald J. Trump. Misogynistic, racist and overall orange, he was pretty much born to irritate. We have never had a president so ill-informed about the nature of his office, so openly mendacious and so completely careless in his abusive attacks on the , the press, Congress and even senior officials within his own administration.

Let’s be honest, most people say that Trump has no actual ideology. But I can assure you, he does. It’s called white supremacy. And if Trump weren’t Caucasian, he would not be in office. Simple as that. Most of us have an account on Twitter, either for the actual use of it or to simply have one. Take a look at Trump’s tweets within the past few months and you’ll see his entire feed is either xenophobic videos of Muslim violence, retweets of Nazi-sympathizers, or childish fights with other world leaders (who, by the way, are ready and armed with nuclear bombs. Every day is Christmas!) But along with his racist and white supremacist tweeting, DJ’s spread the love even further. So far, as to call Nancy Pelosi “Pocahontas” at a Cherokee gathering. I can just feel the love, can’t you?

Throughout his campaign, along with vigorous tweeting, Donny John promised to ‘build a wall’, ban Muslims from entering the country, bring manufacturing jobs back, repeal Obamacare, and defund Planned Parenthood. Many of these promises, however, are unrealistic and illogical (just like the man, himself), and have been at least put on hold or denied all together. However he truly fueled his campaign by casting himself as the defender of white females against Mexican “rapists,” later accused by multiple women, and by his own proud words, to be a sexual violator himself. Luckily, we were blessed with the 500,000 women and men who didn’t let this go unheard at the Washington March, including the other five million who’ve made their own contributions worldwide. Let’s all keep in mind that Trump may be the eldest president to take office, but guess what? He’s also the first president to have publicly affirmed that his daughter is a “piece of ass.” How did we not see this coming?

The (not so) United States of America

It is easy to judge others without looking inward. Author Stephen Covey defines this concept succinctly: “seek first to understand, then to be understood.” President Donald Trump has been exceedingly unpopular since the outset of his term, sparking an inextinguishable inferno of unnecessary protests, conspiracies and “not my president” hashtags. The infallible media bias, misunderstanding of President Trump’s administration and the public’s lack of concern regarding the media’s pervasive lies has lit the fuse for assumptions concerning his aptitude to run the United States of America.

Donald Trump is not a racist. Donald Trump is not a bigot. Donald Trump is not a fascist. These accusations are perpetrated by the far left who, without substantive criticisms, have fallen back on name calling as their primary weapon of political attack. The thing is, the group slandering Trump is banding together like sheep, mindless, easily swayed and skiddish. As the left has so often pointed out, Trump is not politically correct or overly sensitive, often taking bold statements to Twitter. President Trump’s first year in office has proven his ability to be unwavering and confrontational, exactly what modern day America needs.

The left continues to argue that the Trump administration is wreaking havoc in Washington with little political achievements. But this is far from true. President Trump has faithfully delivered on his campaign promise to lower the unemployment rate, and at 4.3 percent, the lowest since 2001, the American people should be thanking Trump, not protesting him. Furthermore, the stock market index has soared under Trump’s presidency, climbing 30 percent, a record high, due to tax cuts and boosted earnings. The 45th President has made history.

The media has clung to Trump like a parasite, without a shred of journalistic integrity, digging deep into his past to reveal any iota of useless gossip that may decrease his popularity. But I encourage the left and the media to look past Trump’s initial abrasiveness and try to understand the moderate and conservative wings of the political spectrum. Only then will liberals be able to accept the path of Trump’s presidency and recognize the future is not as dark as they may see it.
