Donald Trump Bust

Contemporary perceptions of our Presidents tend to change as the American culture pitches and yaws in the winds of time. We have seen the much-maligned President Reagan emerge as one of the most popular and beloved Presidents of the Twentieth Century.

Conversely, the rise of the radical left has had a reverse effect – dragging down the reputations (and statues) of our Founding Fathers.  People like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are going through a political postmortem by the radical left.

In most cases, the calmer evaluation of posterity tends to view things with greater objectivity – away from the hot cauldron of the political zeitgeist of these times.

There are two analyses that suggest a better review of Trump than seen in today’s headlines.  First, is the judgment that Trump was more maligned by an aggressive and corrupt news media than any President in American history – including the much-maligned Abraham Lincoln.

This led to the second issue – Trump’s accomplishments as President.  Though almost totally ignored or demeaned by the elitist news media, a more objective historic analysis will find that despite the obsessive criticism, he accomplished a lot.

The Trump presidency is a departure from his recent predecessors in that he was not only NOT a member of the Washington establishment, he came to town to break its grip on power.  That was the swamp to which he often referred. That is what brought about the extreme backlash – the unprecedented #NeverTrump Resistance Movement.

Whether you call it “the establishment,” “the deep state,” “the bureaucracy” or “the old guard” makes no difference.  Trump’s popularism was opposed to the increasing arrogance and power of the left-wing Washington ruling class – a culture that coalesces power-hungry elected officials, an entrenched bureaucracy and a flagrantly biased news media.

The effort to “not normalize” Trump – meaning never saying a kind work or giving him any credit for positive accomplishments – created an unfairly dark picture of the man, his administration and all who supported him to any degree.  Future historians will not be part of the anti-Trump movement.  They will analyze Trump’s accomplishments and his failures with a more independent perspective – and with a fairer historic analysis of the corrupt role played by the elitist news industry.

Just as President Nixon won later acclaim for his opening relations with China, Trump will get credit for his Middle East policies that resulted in the removal of most American combat troops, the crushing of the ISIS califate, and the negotiation of peace treaties between Israel and three Arab nations.

Trump will get credit for his Warp Speed Program that produced and distributed a Covid-19 vaccine in record time.  Trump’s re-positioning the federal courts with a record number of appointments – including three to the Supreme Court – will be seen as a major impact of the American judiciary – even if Democrats later attempt to pack the courts.

Trump’s criminal reform legislation ended the great injustice against mostly minority males produced by the 1990s crime legislation of President Clinton — with the sponsorship of then-Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Joe Biden.

History may also judge his loss quite differently.  There will be a re-assessment of the amount of vote fraud that actually occurred in the 2020 General Election.  The controversy over the election is bound to go forward – and a more objective historical review is likely to see the corruption that has been exposed by Republican advocates – and so vehemently denied today by those on the left.

As a political force, most would agree that Trump was highly successful tapping into the heart of the American people with his America First populism in a way that few presidents could.

Driven by contemporary obsessive hatred for Trump – and by extension, all Republicans – the power-craving political left abhors the idea that Trump could receive even a semblance of positive analysis of his presidency.  But that is wishful thinking.  They will not be around to offer their pre-conditioned opinions of the Trump years in the White House.

So, there ‘tis.

  1. History will hoinipr him,
    As we should currently.
    As a great American who served us well for 4 turbulent years and should be in the office again…
    Fraudulent election..

  2. As a President that got our economy back on track. He got people back to work. And he believes in Jesus Christ.

  3. President Trump isn’t done yet. He is fighting the forces of corruption to keep his position, and the lying cheat demo-rats tried to steal the election he rightfully won by a landslide. when he wins out in January, he will round up the entire crooked establishment that worked together to defeat him.

    President Trump is the best President EVER!

  4. I AM 76 YEARS OLD AND HAVE SEEM ALOT OF PRESIDENTS AND TRUMP IS BY FAR THE BEST ONE IVE EVER SEEN AND I KNOW THIS BECAUSE THE WASHINGTON IDIOTS TRIED(AND SUCCEEDED) TO GET RID OF HIM BY STEALING THE PRESIDENCY FROM HIM. HE PUT A CRIMP IN THEIR STYLE THEY HAD TO STOP ALL THEIR CROOKED SHENANIGANS AND ROBBING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND DOING ALL THE OTHER CORRUPT CRAP THEY WERE DOING NOW THEY HAVE THE LOWEST CROOK OF ALL IN THERE SO ITS BACK TO BUSINESS AS USUAL

  5. I completely agree with the article.
    The Trump Presidency has been amazing. He came in and started to work immediately. He took no prisoners. As a successful business man, he managed many and as Oresident that did nit change. The change was that some of the folks working in Government were against him and everyday someone said something horrible about him or accused him of a crime. The Speaker of the house lost her mind due to her hatred of Trump. She therefore, took every chance she could to make sure he never received a pat on the back for the job well done. The saddest thing about this crazy behavior caused by hatred was the insainly rude treatment of the beautiful smart first Lady. Designers that had dressed her for all of her supermodel years would not dress her. Now that is so petty! not in the interest of the people of NY. President Trump does not sleep much but kept up a pace like I have never seen. She maintained her composure. Now that they will no longer be in the White House they will make a change I am sure! $$$. The left radical are out of this world that
    I believe that Trump opened a window for us all to see that our gov is out of control and run by lifelong partisans who have become millionaires at ours and the world experience. Lying is a sport for those folks. They are not human. They have lost every bit of humility and decency.
    It is clear we need term limits. I think we should go back really far when the winner of the election was President and the runner up would be Vice President. That way all sides have interests in doing good things for the country!
    Joe Biden’s win is not to be believed. I am certain he will begetting help from Obama. I am afraid that they are so vile and punitive that they will try to overturn some of the really great things that have been done!!.

  6. For the record, for the American people to know, for those who were, have been are being brained wahed by the Fake media which from the very beginning has denied President Trump compentency, President Donald J. Trump has been the VERY BEST PRESIDENT the United States of America have ever had.
    God Bless you and your family as well as VicePresident Pence & Family.
    I don’t vote for you for 204 because I firmly believe you have to be the President in 2021.

  7. History will not remember Trump well, hands down the worst president ever. He continually lies, acts religious when he’s really anti religious, makes the worst appointments to his cabinet (the good ones all left such as Kelly, Mattis), horrible example of leadership ( he has none) a good leader leads by example, who would follow his example, a good leader gives away the credit when things go good and takes the blame when not so good( he does the exact opposite). He will be remembered as a joke, I feel bad saying this as I loved him on the apprentice but that is what he is, a reality show president, no better than the Kardashians. And the big one, he keeps playing one side against the other. He is literally a republican president, doesn’t give one crap about the other side. Yes I understand that the press is hard on him, but it is well deserved, as everything that is critical of him is fake news.

  8. Promises are completely done/accomplished by Pres.Donald Trump, for the American people and for the government. The Demorats hate Pres.Donald Trump due to the absolute fact that MAGA is against their conscience of which any of them ‘rats does not possess !!!!!

  10. Trump is by far the worst president in the history of America. He is a liar, a cheat, a con man, a traitor, a poor excuse for a president, a poor excuse for a man. Because of him thousands of people have died because he took it upon himself not to tell the American people about this virus. He is getting rich off the American people every time he pays golf. This man should be ran out of the country. Take yourself and your corrupt family and go to Russia. He is a disgrace and an embarrassment to this country.

  24. Favio demonstrates the problem with this country. People form and spout opinions without bothering to get the facts. To quote a movie line, “Amazing. Every word of what you just said is wrong”.

    This country would be a whole lot better off if people would engage their minds and actually look at WHAT a president does instead of blindly aligning based on party affiliation. That or putting “nice person” (or at least the appearance of being nice) ahead of actual accomplishments. Trump was a nasty person, but look at what he actually did and his accomplishments…then judge his presidency on those measures instead of how nasty he was (or on what people made up about him).
    Biden is a much nicer person (usually). Nice enough to strip Americans of their rights (so much so that he is fighting a legal battle on multiple fronts over his executive orders regarding Coronavirus vaccination). Nice enough to select Harris as VP (what an embarrassment, as she does in the White House exactly what she was known for and drives her staff away). Nice enough to totally botch Afghanistan…and his presidency is just starting!

    Trump was a nasty person, but the sure didn’t make the mis-steps Biden is making.

    Yet, the people on the left just love Biden, and just hate Trump. Sorry, but I can only conclude it’s because they refuse to engage their mental capacity to look at WHAT is being done instead of WHO is president.

  25. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  26. Things i have observed in terms of laptop or computer memory is there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR or anything else, that must fit in with the features of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is pretty current while there are no operating system issues, updating the memory literally takes under an hour. It’s among the list of easiest pc upgrade techniques one can consider. Thanks for revealing your ideas.
