One year ago, a meeting between the United States and North Korea was regarded as an impossibility. Yet, Trump made it happen. Promises made, promises kept.
#8. President Trump Repealed the Obamacare Individual Mandate
One of the most dreadful features of the Affordable Care Act was the individual mandate. Forcing hardworking Americans to purchase health care that they may be unable to afford or benefit from is egregious beyond words. Countless upstanding people lost money and greatly suffered as a result of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate. Others simply chose to pay the associated penalty fee because it was more cost-effective than purchasing unaffordable health care.
Thankfully, Trump took the initiative to end the individual mandate. This reform provided relief for countless Americans earning less than $50,000 on an annual basis.
The individual mandate is something that Democrats largely supported; however, their support is quite ironic, seeing as struggling Americans were hit particularly hard by having to buy unaffordable health care.
#9. President Trump is Cracking Down on Illegal Immigration
Similarly to law and order, legal immigration served as a central focal point of Trump’s campaign for the Oval Office. This is something that Trump supporters have lauded and his critics have loathed. Nevertheless, America is a nation of laws; as such, protecting our borders and ensuring that immigration occurs lawfully is paramount.
Thanks to Trump, Department of Homeland Security officials have taken thousands of MS-13 gang members into custody. Likewise, the Department of Justice and Central American allies have indicted various MS-13 gang members. Overall, illegal immigration has decreased; this trend is so prevalent that immigrants who unlawfully entered America are “self-deporting,” leaving the country voluntarily, as opposed to forcibly.
The economic and legal plights of illegal immigration are matters that Democrats tend to shy away from. Instead of acknowledging these issues, they prefer to assert that anyone who opposes unlawful entry into this country is racist. However, “immigrant” is not a race. Immigrants are more than welcome to come to America, so long as they do so legally.
#10. President Trump Defies the Odds
Ultimately, Trump will be remembered as the best president ever because he defies the odds. Since the inception of his candidacy, countless people doubted his abilities. First, critics said he wouldn’t run. Then, they said Trump would never win the Republican nomination. After he secured the nomination, naysayers claimed that Trump would fail to defeat Clinton. Each and every one of these assertions turned out to be wrong.
Since Trump has defeated Clinton, his critics now believe that he will face impeachment. This is based on the conspiracy theory that the president colluded with Russia in 2016 to win the election. The Russia probe has continued for over a year and thus far, no evidence has surfaced which proves that Trump colluded. Many members of the president’s base have justifiably criticized those who continue to push the narrative of collusion.
Individuals who defy the odds are usually quite inspirational figures. Trump has achieved this feat multiple times and will continue to do so. His personality, candidness and policies engendered his win in 2016.
They will also secure his re-election to the Oval Office in 2020.
