During the run-up to the 2016 elections, former President Donald Trump joked that everyday people would grow tired of winning.
“We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with the winning,” Mr. Trump reportedly said.
The Republican strongman made good on his wide-reaching promises. But the result of constant America First success, coupled with a deceitful establishment media, may have resulted in independent voters taking his winning ways for granted. The country is now on an unprecedented losing streak with no end in sight.
Under Trump, unemployment declined to 50-year lows, with black and hispanic Americans enjoying the lion’s share of upward financial mobility. Wages increased against low inflation rates, and the former president succeeded in destroying the stranglehold terrorist organizations such as ISIS held in the Middle East.
A recent poll indicates that Joe Biden and the fake news media effectively hoodwinked undecided voters into believing things would get better regardless of who occupied the White House. Rasmussen, considered among the more accurate polls, concluded that only 37 percent of people who voted for Joe Biden would do so again. Among Biden 2020 voters, 43 percent want a do-over so they can vote for Trump. While upwards of 10 percent of all registered Democrats regret voting for Biden, Black Americans suffer buyer’s remorse at a rate of 14 percent. In head-to-head surveys, Trump would handily win re-election if people cast ballots today.
The knock that seems to stick the hardest on Trump was that he might not have taken fast enough pandemic measures for people’s liking. It’s true that he implemented the first international travel ban. But critics point to his trying to balance issues such as the economy and mental health with Covid mandates. Truth be told, the U.S. fared average, and the most Draconian lockdowns didn’t necessarily save more lives. Viruses do not do what they’re told, and infections have never been anything other than indiscriminate.
Even a cursory look at Trump’s legacy demonstrates a rate of success not experienced in generations. He put three highly qualified justices on the U.S. Supreme Court who follow the constitution and not their political leanings. He was the first president in a lifetime not to engage in a new war or major military conflict after mopping up Obama’s ISIS mess. China was roundly beaten in a trade war that exposed the communists’ economic weaknesses.
America achieved energy independence, followed by dominance within a four-year term. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, “The United States became a net total energy exporter in 2019 for the first time since 1952 and maintained that position in 2020.”
“We are going to start winning big on trade. Militarily, we’re going to build up our military. We’re going to have such a strong military that nobody, nobody is going to mess with us. We’re not going to have to use it,” Trump reportedly said in 2016.
Perhaps the former president won on so many issues voters thought it was easy. Joe Biden has proven that notion false as every hard-earned success unraveled through bad decision-making in less than one year. Inflation is skyrocketing, the Taliban overthrew Afghanistan, Americans are in hiding behind enemy lines, the U.S.-Mexico border has run amuck, recent jobs reports are in the toilet, China has grown more powerful than ever, and Joe Biden recently begged OPEC to send us more oil.
America has suffered humiliating losses under Biden. Is anyone tired of losing yet?
