President Trump’s Farewell Address to the Nation highlights why President Trump’s accomplishments will be difficult to match. Economically, it’s virtually impossible to imagine Joe Biden, or any other Democrat Socialist president, accumulating President Trump’s accomplishments. The first accomplishments were the most important.

Using the Congressional Review Act, the GOP Congress and President Trump jump-started America’s energy industry. As a result, the US is “the world’s number-one producer of oil and natural gas by far.” People are paying less for a gallon of gas. Their heating bills are less, too. That’s about to change because a) Joe Biden wants electric cars, b) John Kerry wants us back in the Paris Climate Accord and Biden is cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline in the name of climate change, not because it’s good for the environment. The economy in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan will needlessly crater.

The World Stage

  1. NATO nations are paying more for defending their nations, thanks to President Trump’s negotiating.
  2. A new trade deal is in place with China. NAFTA was ripped up, then renegotiated. The USMCA was put into place in NAFTA’s place.
  3. While he didn’t finish it, President Trump started bringing US medical supply chains back to the US. When COVID hit, we learned that China produced most of our antibiotics and PPE. That won’t happen because Joe Biden wants to raise these companies’ taxes.

Abraham Accords

Normalizing relations between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain was the first step. The next step was normalizing relations between Israel and Sudan. Now Morocco is joining the Abraham Accords.

In addition to the Abraham Accords, President Trump moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem. That happened early in his administration. Later in his administration, he recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golon Heights. Golon is key to Israel’s defenses.

The Crown Jewel

The pre-COVID economy was the best economy in US history. Blue collar wages were rising twice as fast as white collar wages. Consumer confidence was sky high. Small business confidence was, too. Durable goods orders and shipments were growing after years of stagnation. Wages rose because President Trump shut the US-Mexico border, drying up the low-skill labor pool. The unemployment rates for African-Americans, Hispanics and Asian-Americans hit record lows. The unemployment rate for women was the lowest in three-fourths of a century.

The low minority unemployment rates are partially due to Sen. Tim Scott’s Opportunity zones legislation. The other reason for those low unemployment rates is the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

COVID Vaccines

Operation Warp Speed was a sight to behold. People criticized President Trump when he said that they’d approve a COVID vaccine within a year. The ‘experts’ said it couldn’t be done. Pfizer and Moderna got their vaccines approved in less than a year. That was miraculous. Now that we’re reliant on politicians and bureaucrats, vaccinations have predictably slowed to sub-warp speed.

Joe Biden won’t fill President Trump’s shoes. In fact, it won’t be close. Biden has already announced that he’ll try killing the energy industry again:

The announcements will also include a sweeping order to review all of ex-President Donald Trump’s actions weakening climate change protections, the revocation of a vital permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline project from Canada, and a moratorium on oil and gas leasing activities in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge that Trump’s administration had recently opened to development, Biden aides said.

Expect gas prices to spike. Expect heating bills to rise within a year. It’s apparent that Biden doesn’t care about middle class families’ budgets. While wages stagnate thanks to Biden’s open border policies bringing in tons of cheap labor, expenses will rise thanks to higher gas prices and higher heating bills. Al Gore predicted what will happen to the Biden economy in this speech:

He said that “everything that’s supposed to be up is down. Everything that’s supposed to be down is up.” Under Biden, wage growth will stagnate. Under Biden, families’ expenses will go up.

It won’t take long before billboards start popping up with Trump’s face on them and the question ‘Miss me yet?’

Fred Kaplan’s article is proof that progressives are idiots. It’s Kaplan’s opinion that Mike Pompeo is the worst secretary of state in our nation’s history. Kaplan wrote “Through his two years and nine months as the nation’s top diplomat, Pompeo has said or done nothing that’s enhanced our security, our values, or even—right or wrong—his administration’s own policies.”

The only accomplishments that Mike Pompeo had as Secretary of State was moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, negotiate (as part of a team) the Abraham Accords with 5 Arab nations, box Iran in after the disastrous JCPOA that John Kerry capitulated on, held a legitimate red line with Syria and helping take out Qassim Soleimani, the leader of the IRGC. That’s unless you want to give him partial credit for the USMCA and Phase I trade deal with China and playing an integral role in de-escalating tensions between North Korea and the other Pacific Rim nations.

Like Trump, Pompeo ceaselessly inveighed against the Iran nuclear deal; it is no coincidence that Trump pulled out of the deal and re-imposed sanctions against the Islamic Republic on May 8, 2018, just 12 days after Pompeo was sworn in as secretary. (His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, had advised Trump to stay in the deal.) Pompeo claimed, with swaggering confidence, that the sanctions would compel Tehran back to negotiate a “better” nuclear deal—or possibly force a collapse of the regime. Fast forward to today: Iran’s economy is a wreck, but the regime survives, its hardline factions are stronger than before, and its reactors are closer than ever to churning out an atomic bomb. (President-elect Joe Biden wants to restart the nuclear deal, but Iran’s technological progress and the stiffening of its politics will make this harder to accomplish.)

Thanks to John Kerry’s talks with the Iranians after leaving office, Iran held out in hopes of a Biden administration. The bad news for Biden is that the Arab nations that’ve signed onto the Abraham Accords with Israel hate Iran. The UAE, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan, along with nations like Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Kuwait will balk at the US rejoining the JCPOA. They were driven into the Abraham Accords with Israel because of Kerry’s coziness with Iran. Here’s the Abraham Accords Declaration:

President Trump and Mike Pompeo have a lengthy list of foreign policy accomplishments. By contrast, the Obama-Biden administrations has a lengthy list of foreign policy failures.

Instead of maintaining the Trump foreign policy, Joe Biden essentially said that the US is heading back to the bad old days of the Obama administration. The Trump administration’s foreign policy was known for standing up to ISIS, China, Iran and North Korea.

NoKo hasn’t tested a nuclear device in 3 years. Further, they haven’t fired an ICBM in 3.5 years. Trump stood up to China while negotiating a bilateral trade policy with them. He imposed tariffs on China to let them know he wasn’t fooling around. The trade deal reflects President Trump’s America First priorities. Unfortunately, Biden plans on changing that to an internationalist, America leads-from-behind position.

In his presentation yesterday, Biden said “It’s a team that reflects that America is back. Ready to lead the world, not retreat from it. They embody my core beliefs that America is strongest when it works with its allies. Collectively, this team has secured some of the most defining national security and diplomatic achievements in recent memory — made possible through decades of experience working with our partners.”

That’s what pacifist gibberish sounds like. When he said “this team has secured some of the most defining national security and diplomatic achievements in recent memory”, what he’s referring to is that John Kerry embarrassed the USA while negotiating the JCPOA and the Paris Climate Accord. Compare those ‘accomplishments’ with President Trump, Secretary Pompeo and Jared Kushner negotiating normalization agreements between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan.

Let’s not forget that ISIS started on Biden’s and Kerry’s watch because they pulled out of Iraq too soon. Further, Russia invaded Crimea on Biden’s and Kerry’s watch, too.

The world has changed since Biden last held office. Almost 75,000,000 voters expect politicians and diplomats to make smart decisions. Biden, Blinken and Kerry have gotten most things wrong during their careers. The question now is whether voters will hold Biden accountable for his routinely foolish decisions. As Robert Gates once said in his book, Biden has been wrong about every major foreign policy issue over the past 40+ years. Unfortunately, I don’t expect that to change, mostly because he hasn’t noticed that he’s made any mistakes.

Listing President Trump’s accomplishments is a lengthier responsibility than Democrats admit. In virtually every category, there’s something historic to talk about. That’s why a Biden administration better tread lightly. That’s why President Obama’s legacy is getting belittled by serious people.

Economy

First, President Trump’s record is filled with historic accomplishments. President Trump’s policies directly resulted in the lowest minority unemployment rates in history. Wages for blue collar workers grew twice as fast as for white collar workers. Pre-COVID, consumer confidence and small business were at all-time highs. Best of all, people were leaving the poverty rolls in major numbers. That’s because President Trump listened to Sen. Tim Scott in implementing Sen. Scott’s Opportunity Zones provisions into the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Next, President Trump worked with Congress to get rid of the Obama-Biden regulations that’d hurt the energy industry. That led to the US becoming energy independent and the largest energy producer in the world. (Under Obama, we were reliant on oil from the world’s hotspots. The result? Gas prices are cheap and home heating bills are affordable again.

Most importantly, President Trump started bringing our medical supply chains home while increasing medical manufacturing in the USA. As a result of CCOVID, we found out how reliant we are on China for PPE, the manufacture of antibiotics and other pharmaceutical products. Thanks to President Trump’s leadership and Peter Navarro’s work, those supply chains are coming home.

It remains to be seen if Joe Biden will continue with this or if he’ll foolishly reverse course. Biden’s biggest supporters are Wall Street financiers and globalists. That bunch hates President Trump’s America First policies.

COVID

I wrote here about the White House Fact Sheet on the actions President Trump took to combat COVID. It’s worth repeating some of the details of what he did:

  1. At the President’s urging, private companies shifted production to supplying masks, ventilators, hand sanitizer, testing supplies, and more.
  2. President Trump has acted under the Defense Production Act more than 30 times to ensure we have the supplies we need.
  3. President Trump understood early on that in order to defeat this virus once and for all and protect Americans, we need a vaccine and therapeutics.
  4. President Trump revolutionized the clinical trial process to ensure Americans get a safe vaccine as quickly as possible, by providing unprecedented investments in leading vaccine candidates to simultaneously produce them as they are tested and developed.

In other words, President Trump took actions that saved millions of lives. He used the DPA to build a national stockpile of PPE. Most importantly, he funded the vaccine that we’re only weeks away from getting.

Foreign Policy

President Trump demolished ISIS, stared down China, renegotiated trade deals, negotiated the Abraham Accords and put Russia and Iran in boxes. President Trump also killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Qassim Suleimani.

I’m betting that Aaron David Miller’s article was either written by the DNC. Either that or it was preapproved of by the DNC. This shouldn’t be taken as the writings of someone serious.

For instance, Miller wrote “Trump was great for Netanyahu. But there’s a lesson in Ben Gurion’s reply to JFK. With admiration and respect around the world for the United States, particularly in the Middle East, Israel is stronger. And on that score, president-elect Joe Biden will be better for Israel, strengthening bipartisan American support for the Jewish state and pursuing policies abroad far more effective in enhancing Israel’s security and well-being.”

Admiration and respect for the United States is exceptionally high right now. If it wasn’t, President Trump’s diplomats wouldn’t have secured agreements for the Abraham Accords. President Trump’s diplomats also reached agreement with Kosovo and Serbia. Later, President Trump’s diplomats negotiated a peace deal and normalization of relations between Israel and Sudan.

Further, it’s insulting for Miller to write that President “Trump was great for Netanyahu.” President Trump moved the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to its rightful home in Jerusalem. Then he recognized that the Golan Heights were part of Israel. These are major substantive accomplishments that improve Israel’s security long-term. President Trump got them accomplished in 47 months. Joe Biden didn’t get them done in 47 years.

But Trump’s pro-Israel gestures mask a weakening of American credibility and reputation around the world, and an assault on the bipartisanship and shared values so critical to the resilience of the U.S.-Israel relationship. Trump’s approach to Iran, withdrawing the United States from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, and his faulty approach to the Israel-Palestinian peace process have degraded Israel’s security, not enhanced it. Iran is ramping up its nuclear program, while prospects for progress, let alone a resolution of the Israel-Palestinian conflict remain remote.

That’s a breathtakingly foolish statement. President Trump’s policies were moving the Middle East toward isolating Iran and Iran’s terrorist proxies. The Obama-Biden policies created ISIS, gave Russia implicit permission to restart its expansionist policies and essentially let Iran run Iraq. That’s before talking about the lapdog position Obama-Biden took towards China.

When it came to foreign policy, Obama-Biden didn’t have any credibility. Further, this doesn’t include President Trump’s rebuilding of our military. That’s before talking about President Trump insisting that NATO nations pay their fair share. Each of those Trump policies built international credibility.

This LTE wasn’t written by a well-informed group of people. Either that or it was written by some exceptionally dishonest people. The LTE starts by saying “We are voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for a multitude of reasons. We want to see growth in our economy; focus on climate change and our environment; support for our farmers and small businesses; an end to COVID-19; peace, law and order in our cities without racial tension.”

Team Obama-Biden presided over the weakest recovery in US history. If you’re looking for explosive growth, you have to eliminate the Obama-Biden team. Since the Biden-Harris team’s economic policies are just a continuation of the Obama-Biden policies, we shouldn’t expect robust economic growth from them.

The writers say that they want “an end to COVID-19.” If they’re serious about that, they should be voting for President Trump. Thanks to Operation Warp Speed, 3 companies are in the final phase of developing a vaccine. It’s likely that they’ll get FDA approval before the end of 2020. They’re already manufacturing the vaccine so that it can be distributed the minute it’s approved.

If these clowns are serious about “law and order in our cities,” they should consider the fact that Joe Biden didn’t say a thing about the rioting until after Labor Day. The rioting started on Memorial Day. In other words, Biden was nowhere to be found for the entire summer on the subject.

We are voting for Biden and Harris to restore our dignity globally; restore the Voting Rights Act; strengthen our Social Security program for seniors; lift people out of poverty; re-join the Paris Climate Agreement; regain our status as a world leader in NATO.

That’s breathtakingly dishonest. President Trump has the world’s attention. Proof is found in the Bosnia-Kosovo peace agreement. More proof is found in the Abraham Accord between the US, Israel, UAE and Bahrain. As for NATO, President Trump has insisted on NATO countries paying their fair share of the budget. That’s triggered an increase of $500,000,000,000 in spending from US NATO allies. Under Obama-Biden, the US paid to defend western European nations. During the Trump administration, NATO’s budget has significantly increased, thanks to NATO allies paying a greater share. That’s what leadership looks like. We don’t need to return to the Obama administration’s lead-from-behind strategy.

This LTE was written by people who are either dishonest or ill-informed. Since they’re supporting Democrats, I’m betting that they’re dishonest. The Democrats’ attachment to the truth is limited at best.

Tuesday afternoon, President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu joined the foreign ministers of the UAE and Bahrain in signing history-shattering peace agreements. These agreements are now known as the “Abraham Accords.”

In his remarks, President Trump said “Thanks to the great courage of the leaders of these three countries, we take a major stride toward a future in which people of all faiths and backgrounds live together in peace and prosperity.” Prime Minister Netanyahu added “This day is a pivot of history, it heralds a new dawn of peace. For thousands of years the Jewish people have prayed for peace, for decades the Jewish state has prayed for peace, and this is why today we are filled with such profound gratitude.”

They were joined by UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, Bahrain’s Foreign Minister. Zayani praised the deal, saying “Mr. President, your statesmanship and tireless efforts have brought us here today and made peace a reality.”

Meanwhile, Democrats acted like disgruntled children, with Speaker Pelosi sounding particularly bitter:

The signing of a pair of historic peace agreements is a “distraction” from COVID? What type of warped person is Ms. Pelosi? These agreements are historic because it isn’t often that Arab nations recognize Israel’s right to exist. That’s why Tuesday’s agreements are only the third and fourth agreements in Israel’s history.

The first agreement was the Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt. They were signed by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin on Sept. 17, 1978. (Sadat was assassinated 3 years later.) Next was the signing of the Israel–Jordan peace treaty in Oct., 1994. That was the last treaty between Israel and an Arab nation until yesterday.

Pelosi is one of the most tone-deaf politicians in DC history. That’s why there’s an anti-Democrat backlash building. Pelosi thinks that COVID is the top issue with voters. Just ask yourself this question. What’s most likely to get your attention — the shooting of the LA sheriff deputies or the daily update of COVID statistics? That isn’t a fair fight.

The thing that came through the most from President Obama’s speech to the DNC was that his thin skin still is his dominant insecurity. A quick perusal of his speech exposes his thin skin. For instance, it’s painfully obvious when he said “The one Constitutional office elected by all of the people is the presidency. So at minimum, we should expect a president to feel a sense of responsibility for the safety and welfare of all 330 million of us — regardless of what we look like, how we worship, who we love, how much money we have — or who we voted for.”

President Obama should read a newspaper once in awhile. When Andrew Cuomo failed his state in preparing for the next epidemic by not stocking up on ventilators and PPE, President Trump got him those supplies. When Cuomo panicked about his hospital capacity, President Trump built a 2,900 bed hospital inside the Javits Center. Then he sent the USNS Mercy into New York Harbor to supplement the existing supply of hospital space, including ICU units. It should be noticed that New York didn’t vote for President Trump. Nonetheless, he got things under control without hesitation.

I have sat in the Oval Office with both of the men who are running for president. I never expected that my successor would embrace my vision or continue my policies. I did hope, for the sake of our country, that Donald Trump might show some interest in taking the job seriously; that he might come to feel the weight of the office and discover some reverence for the democracy that had been placed in his care.

But he never did. For close to four years now, he’s shown no interest in putting in the work; no interest in finding common ground; no interest in using the awesome power of his office to help anyone but himself and his friends; no interest in treating the presidency as anything but one more reality show that he can use to get the attention he craves.

First, it’s rich to hear that the man who famously talked about using his pen and phone to get things done:

Further, it was his fierce desire for his successor to continue his policies. When President Trump won, President Obama used holdovers from his administration to sabotage President Trump’s administration. Instead, President Trump ripped up President Obama’s regulations meant to cripple the energy industry by using the Congressional Review Act 16 times.

Then Trump removed the US from TPP, renegotiated NAFTA, slapped tariffs on China, authorized the building of the Keystone XL Pipeline and cut taxes to bring jobs homes from overseas. Included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was something Tim Scott figured prominently in — Opportunity Zones — which led to the lowest minority unemployment rates in our nation’s history.

That wasn’t all. After that, the man that Democrats call Orange Man Bad dramatically increased funding for HBCUs. He did that after signing into law the First Step Act, which the first black president didn’t have time for in 8 years. The First Step Act is undoing the damage done to black families by the 1994 Crime Bill that then-Sen. Joe Biden inflicted upon black families.

Donald Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t. And the consequences of that failure are severe. 170,000 Americans dead. Millions of jobs gone while those at the top take in more than ever. Our worst impulses unleashed, our proud reputation around the world badly diminished, and our democratic institutions threatened like never before.

This is typical Obama. He intentionally omits the fact that the jobs are returning at a record pace. with 9,300,000 jobs created in the last 3 months. It’s also typical Obama for him to say “while those at the top take in more than ever.” Under the Trump administration, blue collar workers’ wages increased at a significantly higher rate than white collar wages increased, thereby shrinking the gap of income inequality that exploded during the Obama administration.

As for the US’s “proud reputation around the world badly diminished,” the truth is that Obama’s international reputation is diminished, not Trump’s. Finally, our “worst impulses unleashed” is accurate, just not in the way Obama means. BLM rioted in Portland earlier this week, putting a white man into the hospital after he crashed his truck. Looters invaded Chicago’s Miracle Mile, justifying it as reparations. Those riots are on Ted Wheeler and Lori Lightfoot, the Democrat mayors in charge of Portland and Chicago, respectively.

President Obama can’t stand the thought that his successor has a lengthy list of accomplishments. Obama hates it because it puts his microscopic list of accomplishments to shame. If only he’d taken his job seriously.

John Kerry, who once fought in Vietnam, is the worst Secretary of State in US history, in my opinion. His massive ego, though, forces him to think of himself in a positive historic light. Last night, he spoke at the Democrats’ National Convention to paint a distorted picture of the world.

For instance, Kerry said “When this president goes overseas, it isn’t a goodwill mission. It’s a blooper reel. He breaks up with our allies and writes love letters to dictators. America deserves a president who is looked up to, not laughed at.” That’s revisionist history on steroids. Here’s a snippet from President Trump’s speech “to the Arab Islamic American Summit”:

Our vision is one of peace, security, and prosperity—in this region, and in the world. Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future that does honor to God.

And so this historic and unprecedented gathering of leaders—unique in the history of nations—is a symbol to the world of our shared resolve and our mutual respect. To the leaders and citizens of every country assembled here today, I want you to know that the United States is eager to form closer bonds of friendship, security, culture and commerce.

Those “closer bonds” are paying off. Last week, the Trump administration helped negotiate a deal between Israel and the UAE. That didn’t happen during the Obama administration. That wasn’t possible during the Obama administration because they preferred cozying up to Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism.

Kerry also said this:

Donald Trump pretends Russia didn’t attack our elections. And now, he does nothing about Russia putting a bounty on our troops. He won’t defend our country… The only person he’s interested in defending is himself.

President Trump has said that Russia tried to interfere with our elections. He’s also said that he doesn’t think it was only Russia. In fact, President Trump said that the previous Ukrainian administration interfered with our elections. What’s more is that there’s proof to support President Trump’s statements.

When President Trump left the JCPOA, he took tons of grief for that decision. When President Trump ordered the strike on al-Baghdadi, the Obama administration ‘experts’ predicted chaos throughout the region. When the US took out Qassim Soleimani, the Obama administration experts predicted a region-wide destabilization. Both predictions have been wildly inaccurate.

After Russia invaded Crimea, President Obama sent blankets and MREs to Ukraine. When he took office, President Trump sent Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine to help Ukraine defend itself against Russia. It’s particularly noteworthy, too, that President Trump has increased fossil fuel production, which cripples Russia’s economy. Biden and Kerry favor getting rid of fossil fuels, which strengthens Putin’s Russia. While President Trump talks nice to Putin, his actions are anything except nice.

Since Secretary Kerry ‘negotiated’ the JCPOA, he’s been a laughingstock on the international stage. His credibility on what is or isn’t a blooper reel is questionable.

Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democrat National Convention was both bizarre and disgusting. She started by saying that she loves this country with all her heart and that it pains her to “see so many people hurting. I’ve met so many of you. I’ve heard your stories and, through you, I have seen this country’s promise.” So much BS, so little time to go through all of it.

First, there’s 18 minutes of my life that I won’t get back. Next, here’s a golden oldie that suggests Mrs. Obama isn’t being honest with us:

Twelve years ago, Mrs. Obama said “For the first time in my life, I am proud of America.” It’s impossible to love America with all of one’s heart when you weren’t proud of it the first 40 years of one’s life. I don’t doubt that Democrats bought that BS hook, line and sinker. I’m confident that most thinking people detected a bunch of BS in that part of Mrs. Obama’s speech.

Later in her speech, Mrs. Obama said that a president’s words “have the power to move markets. They can start wars or broker peace.” President Obama’s decisions brought an unstable region to the brink of war. President Trump’s diplomatic team have worked tirelessly to walk us back from that precipice. Then they went to work to undo the JCPOA that threatened the Middle East. Next, President Trump’s diplomats built a bridge between Israel and the UAE.

President Obama’s ‘experts’ said getting out of the JCPOA would destabilize the region. We were told that establishing relations with Iran would start building a framework for peace. By throwing Israel under his bus, President Obama destabilized the Middle East while unintentionally driving Israel and the Saudis into a partnership.

This morning, President Trump critiqued Mrs. Obama’s speech:

Trump responded Tuesday morning to the first keynote speaker, former first lady Michelle Obama, by launching more Twitter broadsides against former President Barack Obama. “Somebody please explain to @MichelleObama that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama,” Trump wrote.

In her speech, Mrs. Obama said this:

“Whenever we look to this White House for some leadership, or consolation, or any semblance of steadiness, what we get instead is chaos, division, and a total and utter lack of empathy.”

Let’s clarify something, Mrs. Obama. President Obama exceled at creating divisions. The first act of dividing the country came when he rejected all of their ideas for his stimulus plan. Another act of division was when he was asked about a police arrest of a college professor. President Obama said “I don’t know what happened. I just know that the police acted stupidly.” Mrs. Obama, does that sound like a man of empathy to you? It doesn’t sound like it to me. It sounds like a man stoking the fires of racial tension.

When it comes to increasing racial tensions, President Obama was skilled at throwing gas on raging racial fires. That’s what he did in Ferguson. He bought the “Hands up, don’t shoot” BS hook, line and sinker. Racial tensions didn’t start during the Trump administration. They started with Cambridge, then got stoked with Ferguson, then Baltimore.

Mrs. Obama said that President Trump is in over his head. That’s an outright lie. Here’s President Trump’s Twitter reply to that statement:
