Glad to see someone is stroking his ego.  God knows, judging by his Twitter, little Donnie is having a meltdown over this impeachment thing and needs a little stroking (more than apparently Mitch and Lindsey can do him).  That, and gee! he got passed over as Time's Person of the Year.

Who was the last President that delivered 100% of the promises they made on the campaign trail?  

 

Scoff all you want, but this president has delivered more promises in 3 years than any other President in my lifetime.  

 

The new trade deal with Canada and Mexico is great for the USA would you not agree?  How much tariff money was paid to the US Treasury during the past 3 years.  

 

IMHO he is doing a good job getting other countries to the table in order to balance things out.

 

 I know you guys hate him but for me,  I have not seen one dimm candidate or read a single idea or vision from any of them that would change my vote in November of next year.  

 

Are you better off today than you were 5 years ago?  The American voter will answer that question when they vote in 2020.

This thread is another prime example of the Alternate Reality of Trump World. The new NAFTA (U.S. - Mexico) agreement was signed only after Trump caved in and gave the Dems everything they demanded. Trump did this because he was so desperate for an agreement. 

 

Sen. Pat Toomey.

The conservative Pennsylvanian lambasted the deal on Tuesday as a potential drag on the economy and a capitulation to Democratic labor demands. “There are serious problems with this agreement,” Toomey told reporters, adding that it would be a “big mistake” to pass the U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement in the coming weeks.

 

Toomey argued the GOP should have passed the deal while it still had control of the House instead of spending months negotiating with Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Democratic demands.

“It’s clearly moved way to the left, which is why you had a celebratory press conference by all the Democratic leadership in the House. … You have organized labor enthusiastically supporting this,” Toomey said. “When’s the last time they were enthusiastic about a free trade agreement?”

 

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas)  also raised concerns that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer may have given “away the store” to Democrats and said on Tuesday that concessions to the AFL-CIO “concerns” him.

 

China Trade Deal?

  • Rermember when Jim said Kim Jong Un agreed to de-nuclearize North Korea? Of course that was a bogus accomplishment.
  • This is only a parital, tentative deal
  • More importantly, how does one give credit to Trump for ending a trade war he started?

One of Trump’s 'best weeks yet'

Hidden by impeachment: One of Trump’s 'best weeks yet'

 

While the media and his critics focused on the bitterly divided House impeachment hearings, President Trump this week collected the most agenda wins yet, policy victories, including some backed by Democrats, that bolster arguments he’s making for reelection, according to advisers and analysts.

 

From adding judges to foreign policy, trade, immigration, defense spending, and China, Trump added several more achievements he will tout when he hosts his next campaign rally, standing in front of a 2020 “Promises Kept” sign.

 

"It was one of his best weeks yet," said a key White House adviser.

 

One of his pollsters, John McLaughlin, joked that if public anger at impeachment continues to grow, worried Democrats might get in line to pass more of his agenda to give them protection in their reelections next year.

 

“Democrats in states and districts the president won are at serious risk if they vote for impeachment. So they are rushing to vote for the president’s popular positions,” he said, adding, “If [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer keep pressing impeachment, it’s likely the president will get his entire agenda passed and reelected in a landslide.”

Added to the list of accomplishments this week:

 

  • An agreement on a new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal.
  • A new budget including more than $1.3 billion for a border wall and blocks a government shutdown.
  • House approval of the U.S. Space Force, a brand-new branch of the military.
  • Government family leave that will be a model for a proposal for the public.
  • Tentative agreement on trade with China.
  • Approval of Trump's 50th federal appeals judge.
  • Confirmation of a new Food and Drug Administration chief.
  • The signing of a pro-Israel anti-Semitism executive order.

 

 
 

Plus, advisers noted, Wall Street hit another record, and Pelosi conceded that on impeachment, "It’s been going on 22 months — two and a half years, actually."

 

And, the advisers added, with impeachment likely, the president was assured by McConnell that the Senate would move fast on a trial that will end in acquittal and might include the support of two Senate Democrats, according to Sen. Rand Paul.

 

“There is one world where the mainstream media is covering impeachment, but there is another world where Trump is racking up a myriad of accomplishments, many of which have the support of the same Democrats who want to remove him from office,” said political communications strategist Ron Bonjean.

 

A GOP adviser said, “President Trump and the Republicans are an irresistible force surging over, around, and through the gelatinous Democrats — a growing number of whom are realizing daily that what they're doing is seen by the public as trivial and senseless. Just think of what could be accomplished for our country if the loony Left wasn't so obsessed with destroying Trump.”

Trump biographer Doug Wead also took note of the president’s actions in the shadow of impeachment.

 

“Perhaps, for now, what he accomplished this week will be overshadowed by the impeachment, but by next summer, the impeachment may be seen as mean-spirited and partisan, and the string of victories will add to his incredible list of victories going into reelection season,” he said.

 

Wead, who spent months inside the White House interviewing the president and top aides, said that he hadn’t been surprised by Trump’s aggressive fight on impeachment and his campaign to rack up wins.

 

“During impeachment, any other president would retreat into the bunker and be consumed with defense. Endlessly gaming various scenarios. Instead, Trump, the businessman, is looking for a way to use it to his advantage,” he said.

 

“He is the master magician, waving one hand to distract, while with the other hand, he makes the trick work. In this case, the Democrats provided this unwanted distraction, but he clearly seized on the moment,” Wead added.

Campaign promises made and promises kept!
