Unlike Joe Biden, President Trump Actually Puts America First on Jobs, Trade and Immigration

This past week at the Democrat’s low energy Zoom convention, we heard a lot about what a good guy former Vice President Joe Biden is, that he’s a man of “faith” and “character.” We heard almost nothing about his accomplishments. That’s because after fifty years as a politician, Biden has accomplished almost nothing of significance.
In contrast, President Trump has done more for the American people in almost four short years than any president in my lifetime. Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is a man of action. Biden is a man of words. Where Trump gets things done, Biden promises to get things undone. Biden’s entire campaign platform is a promise to undue nearly every one of Trump’s accomplishments.
Let’s talk about jobs. Under the Obama-Biden economy it took almost five years to recover the 8 million jobs lost in the Great Recession. In contrast, the Trump economy was so strong when the Chinese coronavirus pandemic struck that 10.1 million jobs have been recovered in just three months as President Trump moves to safely reopen the economy.
Under President Trump, 65 percent of Americans got to keep more of their hard-earned money thanks to his historic tax cut, according to the Tax Policy Center. For 29 percent, taxes stayed about the same, and 6 percent paid more on the higher end of the income spectrum. Biden has promised to raise taxes.
As a part of his tax reform, President Trump repealed the Obamacare individual mandate forcing Americans to purchase health insurance. Biden has vowed to bring it back—and to institute a socialized medicine public option “like Medicare.”
The President has been undoing the Obama-Biden regulatory knots that had tied up growth and job opportunities for years.
President Trump and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson ended the Obama-Biden era Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing regulation that conditioned $3 billion of annual community development block grants to more than 1,200 counties and cities on making changes to local zoning along income and racial guidelines.
And Trump has established Opportunity Zones that have helped particularly black Americans in urban areas to find work—and they will surely be needed to recover from the pandemic.
President Trump supports the police and wants to restore law and order to our cities. Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), supported cutting $150 million from the Los Angeles Police Department.
