Trump succeeds despite Resistance

To the editor:

Today our economy is humming along at a rate which Obama and his fellow party members told us would never occur. We were destined to be a service economy a la flipping burgers at McDonald’s.

A stagnant employment rate, a sluggish economy, threats from North Korea and Iran and second-class treatment by the Chinese were here to stay in a new world order according to these nabobs of nincompoopery.

Boom! Along comes Trump and the economy rockets into high gear. World leaders are listening and not looking to kick the US on the shins. The US has gone from an importer to an exporter of energy, believe it or not.

But hold the presses–news flash: Here’s Obama now trying to take all the credit for the expanding economy whereas he’d previously predicted that what’s presently happening would be impossible. Just what is it, Barack? Or do you think people are just that gullible that they’ll believe whatever you say?

An alien who just landed on earth might think “Wow, what a country.” However, the population at large, egged on by the news media and the opposition party constantly berate the president. They call themselves the “Resistance,” thereby insulting those who fought truly evil dictators in WWII.

They don’t like his tweets, the way he talks or the color of his hair. He’s a racist, bigot, Nazi and colluder with the Russians and he probably takes candy from infants. Should he come up with new plans, they don’t like them, either, even before he lays them out!

Lincoln spent his first term beset by critics in the press and the Democrat party known then as the Locofocos. Try as he might to save the country, whatever he did was all bad or at least not good enough. Now I would be foolish to equate Trump with Lincoln, but while I’m presently holding my fire against Trump, at least I’m willing to let him have an opportunity to succeed. He aptly calls out the “Fake News” and sadly that term hits the mark.

Can Trump go down in history as one of our better presidents? I honestly don’t know at this point. Then I think that so long ago it was thought Uncle Abe could never be re-elected, much less become our best president ever.

Give peace and prosperity a chance. What have we got to lose?
