Trump Was Not Always Wrong

What Trump Got Right

Love him or hate him, President Donald John Trump’s administration from 2016-2020 was one littered with achievements which Trump Detractor Suppression Efforts are cloaking to ensure that his political ambitions don’t rise again.  The kernels of truth for many of the Trump policies is being overlooked in the media’s portrayal of him, the Democrat Party’s leftist platform expressing a desire to become even more appealing to everyone on every issue and a Republican Party cowering in submission for Trump’s approval even at the expense of its Republican Pledge which isn’t as far afield of the US’s constitution as its leaders often haphazardly veer. 


First came the call for a wall along portions of the southern US Border.  The influx of illegal immigrants was and is a concern of many but the reasons espoused went beyond the humanitarian to the political and quest for potential voters to flip the USA political canopy.  Evidence strongly suggests that the wall has stemmed the flow of those coming from across the Mexican border but at what cost was it done?  The surge of illegal unaccompanied minors into this nation should give us all cause to pause in seeking to undo the Trump administration edit that those seeking entrance had to have papers from appropriate governments through which they have passed.  Though espousing stances to let more in and grant a pathway to citizenship for those here illegally still resounds, downplayed are those who are here with significant criminal past, involved in trafficking people here without regard to their health and safety as well as what should be a primary concern -- screening for illnesses such as the corona virus, tuberculosis and other public health issues.  The rule of law should prevail. 


The persistence of a cry about the legality of the 2020 US Presidential Elections misses the need to refocus the message on election integrity issues which have been at stake and could probably significantly alter future outcomes.  The US Constitution is clear in making sure that voting is only a right for citizens whereby the Republican influenced 15th amendment expanded such to insure such for black Americans.   The constitution says voting is a right which should not be abridged but it doesn’t say it must be made perpetually more convenient beyond reason. 


As we have entered an age where ID’s are required for everything like driving, flying, hailing an Uber,  acquiring  utilities and property, enrolling in school or even entering those premises on behalf of one’s child, etc. it is ludicrous to assume that checking ones ID is symbolic for harassment or voter suppression.  Mail-in-ballots are not the issue as much as certifying in some consistent manner that legitimate voters are so involved.   Ballot harvesting should not be allowed for North Carolina lost a 9th  District  Republican congressmen when such was so mentioned.  Why democrats insist on this remains an enigma.  NAACP former President Benjamin Jealous has noted that the actions of President Barack Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder issued in more gerrymandering from the Republican Party in trying to insure that packing their constituents of color in certain districts allowed more representation for them. 


President Trump did not cause the coronavirus and should not be blamed for its tragic outcomes.   As of late, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the US Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has publicly acknowledged that Trump’s Executive Order on Operation Warp Speed was crucial in getting the vaccine research, ventilators and other equipment in a responsive pipeline after years of neglect for such among other presidents.  Though the rhetoric in defiance of the best medical opinions was sometimes ignored or not always made as transparent as the public would like, the positive COVID-19 test for President Trump with his subsequent treatment at the Walter Reed Hospital for the illness was the best advocate for advances in medical science when it is appreciated that he looked better after treatment than he had often during his administration.  Sadly, the slowness in publicly demonstrating leadership by acknowledging he had been vaccinated or wearing a mask which would not have been social distancing, since by definition seemed the antithesis of the role of the president, but would have served to advocate public safety and public health as indicated.     


The need to restart schools and the economy espoused by Trump truly appreciated the damage to the economy and the Treasury’s lack of gold to back the stimulus payments going to citizens.  The embolden signature of the president on the initial checks though criticized now sees the Biden Administration issuing a letter acknowledging his efforts for this as well. 


But the untold and more likely to be appreciated story in the near future was the creation of the US Space Force and requirement in Trump’s stimulus proposal that a disclosure of the scope of understanding of our federal agencies in regard to Unidentified Aerial Phenomena is to occur by the end of June in 2021.  The 1947 report from the Roswell encounters relative to an alleged captured UFO hinted at a bendable metal which would return to its previous shape, defied belief for many. (Read about metal alloy, Nitinol which is a combination Nickel and Titanium)   Steven Spielberg’s Star Wars adventures preoccupation with cloaking of stealth bombers is seen in today’s Nighthawk and Raptors and alludes to the reengineering of a possible unknown space vehicle.   


As annoyed as many can get with Trump, in many respects he may have been on to something.  Don’t count Trump out but hope that we can identify many leaders who will stand up to advocate what is right rather than buckle to what may be politically convenient.
