Liberal media pundits often bring up the lack of achievements made by the Trump Presidency since the day he was sworn in as our 45th President of the United States of America. Try as they might, their arguments of a failed Presidency are proven over and over again to be NOTHING but more lies.

As you can see, our President and his administration have been rather busy since January 2017. Please share this with family, friends, neighbors, and those who believe President Trump hasn’t done anything to make the lives of the American people better.
What’s even more amazing, is President Trump did all of this while fighting the flagrant daily abuse and impeachment charges by the Democrats.
Why do so many have a problem with OUR president? Is it because he has misspoken a few times? Tell me when you find a perfect person, please… I’ll wait.
I’ll tell you why so many uninformed Americans have a problem with our President. It’s because the media has skewed him in such a negative light and unfairly report his accomplishments to undermine those achievements. Why would they do that? It’s because those in the leftist media are willing accomplices of the Democrat Party. They have an agenda, and it’s not one that’s good for freedom-loving Patriots. Start thinking for yourself, and please share this.
Social media censorship is suppressing the truth about the dangers of globalism and brutal cultures infiltrating the west. Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that Democrats and the mainstream media suppress.
