Advances Despite Obstruction: The Real Story of the Past Six Months

Russia. Twitter. Impeachment. These are the words that USA Today, CNN, The New York Times and the rest of the Leftmedia want you to believe describes the first six months of Donald Trump’s presidency. While they choose to dwell on dead-end stories from eight months ago, President Trump has been putting the American people, jobs and safety first. And in spite of Democrat obstructions to his political appointments, he has still accomplished good things for America.

Trump’s pro-growth policies have strengthened the economy and created jobs. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has increased 17% since Election Day last year. In this year alone, it has already hit new highs 25 times. In addition, since January, the American economy added 863,000 new jobs, 821,000 of which are non-government jobs, including 79,000 construction jobs, 42,000 mining and logging jobs, and 41,000 manufacturing jobs.

Trump takes regulation as a barrier to growth seriously. He has signed 14 Congressional Review Act resolutions to end Barack Obama’s growth-choking regulations. He signed an executive order that requires two old regulations to be eliminated for every new regulation implemented. According to the American Action Forum, these regulation reductions have cut costs by $70 billion.

But, unlike his predecessor, he didn't write a check for $300 or $600 for every adult in the nation, did he. Or take that money back with making everybody buy something, like health care they didn't want.

Yea, Obama makes us pay 20k for health ins. and not a dime for hosp bills are pd until you shell out 12k out of pocket first. Who has that kind of money! Trump is for the people...and I like his no PC style. He's not perfect but at least he's egotistical enough to keep his word to us.Not like the last prez that forced this crap on us just to allow a step closer to a globalist world. Thats the only reason he wants socialist government..its takes power away from us and lets gov rules our lives. Common core and socialist medicine put gov control on us...soon, all our rights will be gone.

3:14 Thank you. Someone with common sense that gets it !! 🙌🏻
I am tired of the bashing of my President by the left. The Democrats are so entrenched right now with "alleged" crimes it's insane. Instead they are spending money on investigating the prez for collusion with Russia which is a bunch of BS and anyone with an ounce of common sense can see that. Be careful what you wish for, I for one am ready to start pushing back.
