During the fiercely fought campaign, Donald Trump spoke to the American people about how much the Establishment (Republican and Democrat) have taken Americans for granted.
They’ve come to the DC trough and were fed. They got big and fat & wealthy and powerful, but forgot who sent them there and for what.
Trump reminded people that his wealth was a direct result of being blessed by America, and he doesn’t need to go to DC to become rich. He can go there, roll up his sleeves and get things accomplished.
And Americans listened to him. They elected him to turn back some of Obama’s worst policies.
He’s only been in office for 50 days, but so far he’s proven that he’s trying to be a man who makes American great.
Here are a few thing Trump has done already.
He issued an executive order pausing refugee immigration from Somalia, Iran, Libya ad Syria, known terrorist hotspots.
He issued an EO which halted funding for sanctuary cities.
Look what else he did with immigration as well!
Beefed up immigration enforcement. According to Shapiro, Trump’s executive actions on immigration included:
1. Broaden Enforcement Priorities. According to Section 5(c), the Secretary of Homeland Security has now been granted the power to prioritize for removal those who “have committed acts that constitute a chargeable criminal offense.” This means anyone who has crossed the border illegally. Whereas under President Obama, other crimes were prioritized, now illegal presence in the country has become a priority for law enforcement. The executive action also extends prioritization to false use of a Social Security number, for example (Section 5(d)), or taking public benefits illegally (Section 5(e)).
2. Add Agents. The order grants the Secretary the ability to hire 10,000 additional law enforcement officers with money to be found under current allocations.
3. Allow States To Help Police Immigration. Whereas the Obama administration sued the Arizona state government for aiding in enforcement of federal immigration law, Section 8(b) of the order allows States and local law enforcement officials to “perform the functions of immigration officers in relation to investigation, apprehension, or detention of alients in the United States.”
Not only has Trump tightened up on immigration in several ways, but he has the USA back some of their gun rights, tabled unconstitutional spending started by Obama, and exited trade deals that aren’t in the country’s best interests.
Somone one said you don’t turn a big boat on a dime; otherwise you’ll capsize it. Trump must have this vision for the USA. After all, Obama did it in 8 years. Trump can’t undo everything immediately. But what he has shown his willingness to do is plug the holes.
There’s going to be a lot demanded of the President in the next months to year. Many folks will feel like he’s not moving fast enough or fulfilling his promises. But here’s the problem.
He and his administration are going to have plug holes and bail water at the same time. But the media isn’t going to fair to him. He’s going to be fighting an uphill battle the whole way. The liberal media has shown their colors already as they flagrantly beat up on him during the election.
He’s also been plagued by an administration who left plants in the ranks in ordr to leak information and appear to make the President look foolish. So if you’re hearing that Trump hasn’t set out what he intended to do, remember he’s alrelady issued 16 executive orders to start correcting years of tyranny under Obama.
