President Trump’s Accomplishments

Trump Hugs Flag

Devolution comes in several forms, and like the Overton Window, every bit that slides to the right is a win for the American people. When President Trump set out to Make America Great Again, he promised that he would fight for us and he would win for us. And he accomplished that in spades. Oftentimes without assistance and sometimes with active resistance from the GOP members in Congress!

When you go to vote in 2022 and 2024, remember these Quisling RINOs that didn’t have enough backbone to put America First, and vote them out! Replace them with MAGA Patriots that will continue what President Trump started and complete the devolution back to the Constitution as our Founding Fathers envisioned — protecting our certain UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Care to count the ways? While you ponder that, take a few minutes to enjoy this video.

On Inauguration day, Donald J Trump was 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old.  What did the singer Seal know and when did he know it and isn’t that CRAZY?

[Intro]
In a church, by the face
He talks about the people going under
Only child know
[Verse 1]
A man decides after seventy years
That what he goes there for is to unlock the door
While those around him criticize and sleep
And through a fractal on a breaking wall
I see you my friend, and touch your face again
Miracles will happen as we trip
[Chorus]
But we’re never gonna survive, unless
We get a little crazy
No we’re never gonna survive, unless
We are a little (crazy)
Trump touches face of amputee vet The Key to deep state secrets is also the Kill Box
Trump heckled in Flint, MI for Demonrat caused water crisis.  “Systemic” is when Demonrats run the system for decades. Trump took on the Fake News Clown Posse daily.

Meanwhile, the salty Wojacks over at the Brookings Institute catalogued 266 regulations rolled back by President Trump. Oh the humanity!
