It’s obvious why America fired Donald Trump – They disapproved of the Job he did

Donald Trump was elected the 45th president after campaigning with his slogan – Make America great again – and resumed office in 2017.   

This surprise victory of a new politician demonstrated that Americans were eager to disrupt the political scene in hopes of change. 

He thrived on the support of highly expectant voters who could not be discouraged in their quest for change. Thus, with Trump at the helm of the Republican seat, campaigning against Democrat representative – Hillary Clinton, expectations were high as to his performance in office towards rekindling the American dream, however, this was not so, as the highly outspoken and ‘no care for the emotional effects’ president went about his activities with a chip on his shoulder and an attitude of total nonchalance, putting laws into effect and engaging in unsavory practices, such as his immigration laws and various media outbursts. 

As monitored and recorded by Gallup, upon assumption of office in January 2017, his job approval ratings were at 45%, this record wavered steadily till about May of that same year, when it began a steady decline, to an average of 37%, most will say this was as a result of his various shocking actions such as firing the FBI director. Prior to this time, only once had the director of the FBI been fired, and this was on the grounds of ethical violations and only after a judicial investigation; however, Trump fired Comey almost as a direct effect of his handling of cases and investigations surrounding himself and his allies. 

According to a post in the Intelligencer, the now ex-president practically confessed to obstruction of justice. He went on to declare the mainstream media the enemy of the people. One could conclude this phase was the first eye-opening period for Americans.  

In April and May 2018, he received approval ratings upwards of 40% up to 42%, according to Wikipedia, more than 103k jobs were created in March, and the unemployment rate was stable till April. Wages also grew by 2.6% in this same period. At the beginning of the quarter, he was down 4.9% from the initial rating upon assuming office. A record 45% approval rating was noticed in week 73, commencing June 11.  

In February 2020, he hit a new record of 49%, amid the initial phase of the coronavirus and he received high scores from Americans for his initial response. An obvious and steady reduction commenced in May as a result of his handling of the death of George Floyd, several racial protests, and the continued effects, and his response to the pandemic, this persisted till Dec, closing out at 39%. It is easy to see the effects of his decisions were long in coming but were foremost on everyone’s mind and this eventually led to his less than regal ousting from the presidency and ultimately from any other subsequent race. 

In January 2021, approval ratings for ex-president Trump were at a record low of 34%.  It is important to mention that he is the only president to never hit a 50% job approval rating at any point during his tenure since the Gallup poll commenced – see what I mean? 

Trump becomes the 11th president who failed to win re-election. Gallup further notes that Trump is now the 4th US incumbent president defeated for re-election since it started its polling, and the second one to have a lower rating post-election.   

Gerald Ford, one of the 4 previous presidents had lower approval ratings after he pardoned Nixon in 1974, and even with this, he made an average of 50% and recorded an increase in rating post-election.    

Jimmy Carter, another ex-president who missed it at re-election, had a much lower rating falling below 30% and closed out at 34%, wherein a loss of approval from party followership was noted.  

George H.W. Bush had extremely high ratings during his first years in office, however, the numbers steadily declined with the economy at the time. He also closed out with a weak 34% compared to previous ratings when he assumed office.   

For Trump, his markedly low rating post-election could be linked to his reaction to the election results and subsequently his prompting of the assault on the capitol building. 

Final job approval ratings by party identification also showed a 14% decrease by fellow republicans and a 28% reduction from independents telling us that even his party members disapproved of the job he did.

Honest Joe

Good ole Joe. Honest Joe.

That’s it.

That’s all the blog post.

Let me elaborate on that some more.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is honest in his statements, yes we can recognise he has made some misleading or false claims here and there but, when your opponent has made 13,435 false or misleading claims way before he even had 1000th in office, the bar is not that high.

Unless you are Paulette Dale, who loves President Donald Trump’s smile– Wait, she’s voting for Biden?!

Wow, who could have guessed it? Telling lies doesn’t help, imagine that.

Jokes aside, let us look at the numbers, shall we?

By American voters, Democratic candidate Joe Biden is seen as more honest, more even-tempered, and a better role model than US President Donald Trump.

On a poll conducted June 16-22 by Pew Research Centre among 4,708 adults, including 3,577 registered voters, found overall headline figures of 54% of registered voters who said that if the election were held today, they would vote for Biden or lean toward voting for him, putting him ten points ahead of Trump, who was backed by 44%.

So you could say Trump is LIE-ing low in the polls. No? Okay.

The People Have Spoken

But did the President listen?

President Donald Trump said he couldn’t hear the protesters who booed him and first lady, Melania Trump when they paid their respects to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the Supreme Court on Thursday.

The numbers of news outlets with videos of this precise moment are too many to count, but I can tell you something the “vote him out” chant was deafening, the people spoke, yet it wasn’t clear enough for Trump.

He later said that he and the first lady couldn’t hear what was being chanted.

“Well I think that was just a political chant, I couldn’t — we could hardly hear it from where we were. Somebody said there was some chanting, but they were right next to the media. But really couldn’t– hardly hear too much,” Trump said Thursday afternoon on his way from the White House to a campaign rally in North Carolina. “We heard a sound, but it wasn’t very strong.”

I wonder, will the people stay this loud come November?

Coronavirus USA

The daily confirmed Covid-19 (Coronavirus) cases, today Oct. 6th 2020, is of 40.705.
This is the current number of Covid-19 cases by state, starting with the highest:

Source: worldometers.info/

These numbers give a grim perspective, I can tell you that in each the state the number of cases that made a full recovery is more than 50% and yes, the death toll is high, yet the percentage of deaths is very low; take California for example, the total number of deaths is 16,178 and that amounts for approximately around 1.9% of the confirmed cases.

I agree that number of deaths should be 0, but we can’t all be Vermont that up to this date has had less than 2000 confirmed cases: I’d love for Vermont to have a super neat trick or secret to keep that number so low but they just did the standards like frequent hand-washing, mask-wearing and social distancing

Yes, it is that simple!

Unless you ask President Donald Trump, who until now has given some pretty misleading information, such as:

  • On the Nature of the Outbreak: The outbreak would be temporary: “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle—it will disappear.” This is the one I wish were true, but sadly it isn’t. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned days later that he was concerned that “as the next week or two or three go by, we’re going to see a lot more community-related cases.” He was right—the virus has not disappeared.
  • Blaming the Obama Administration: The Trump White House “inherited” a “broken,” “bad,” and “obsolete” test for the coronavirus. The novel coronavirus did not exist in humans during the Obama administration. Public-health experts agree that, because of that fact, the CDC could not have produced a test, and thus a new test had to be developed this year.
  • On Coronavirus Testing: “Anybody that needs a test, gets a test. We—they’re there. They have the tests. And the tests are beautiful” and “If somebody wants to be tested right now, they’ll be able to be tested.” Trump made these two claims two months apart, but the truth was the same both times: The U.S. did not have enough testing.
  • On COVID-19 Treatments and Vaccines: Trump was being “sarcastic” when he suggested in a briefing on April 23 that his medical experts should research the use of powerful light and injected disinfectants to treat COVID-19. Trump’s tone did not seem sarcastic when he made the apparent suggestion to inject disinfectants. Turning to Birx and a Department of Homeland Security science-and-technology official, he mused: “I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning? … It would be interesting to check that.” When he walked this statement back the next day, he added that he was only asking his experts “to look into whether or not sun and disinfectant on the hands [work].” [PLEASE DO NOT DRINK OR INJECT BLEACH OR DISINFECTANTS]

Also, North Dakota.
What’s going on there?
Covid-19 hospitalizations in North Dakota have hit a new high, the state Department of Health reported Monday.

We are not experts on the matter to be given out recommendations, but we can quote the experts:

In an interview with “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC, Dr. Fauci addressed when people would most likely be able to do things again that they had done before the pandemic, such as going to an indoor movie theater “with impunity.”
While a vaccine may be available by the end of the year, he said, “by the time you mobilize the distribution of the vaccinations, and you get the majority or more of the population vaccinated and protected, that’s likely not going to happen till the mid or end of 2021.”
In a panel discussion at Harvard Medical School he said “we need to hunker down and get through this fall and winter because it’s not going to be easy.” Ms. Mitchell pointed out that this conflicted with what President Trump had said at the White House on the same day, that the country had “rounded the final turn” on the virus.
He said “what we don’t want to see is going into the fall season when people will be spending more time indoors — and that’s not good for a respiratory borne virus — you don’t want to start off already with a baseline that’s so high.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its website to warn that the coronavirus can spread through the air, something public health experts have been warning about for months but went unacknowledged by the agency until Monday.
“There is evidence that under certain conditions, people with COVID-19 seem to have infected others who were more than 6 feet away,” the CDC says on its website.

The Economy & The Election

President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden laid out starkly divergent visions of how to dig the U.S. economy out of the deepest downturn since the Great Depression amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The goal of the next president will be to get back to full employment as fast as possible

  • Trump promised more cuts to taxes and regulations, and he dangled the prospect of additional tariffs against China; “We will go right after China,” Trump said. “We will not rely on them one bit. We’re taking our business out of China. We are bringing it home. We want our business to come home.” He added, “We will continue to reduce taxes and regulations at levels not seen before.”
  • Biden Biden vowed to raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations and use the money to spend trillions to upgrade the nation’s infrastructure and shift to a clean-energy future, make housing and child care more affordable and improve education, among other proposals.
  • Trump In his nomination speech, he suggested he’ll propose cutting individual taxes but didn’t say which. Trump’s campaign has generally provided vague economic proposals that could be fleshed out later. The president, for example, vowed to create 10 million jobs in 10 months but didn’t specify how.
    Economist Chris Edwards of the libertarian Cato Institute says: “Trump will be better from a free-market perspective.”
    The Tax Foundation says it’s difficult to analyze the ideas without more details.
    Critics question the legality of a payroll tax cut that’s not approved by Congress.
    “Tax cuts provide a small economic bang for the buck, adding significantly to the nation’s debt load and providing little economic lift.“ said Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics
  • Biden His administration would raise taxes and eliminate loopholes for individuals earning more than $400,000.
    Economist Nancy Vanden Houten of Oxford Economics says she supports the plan because it targets wealthy individuals who likely would save, rather than spend, their tax windfall, doing relatively little harm to the economy.
  • Trump is trusted more than Democratic nominee Joe Biden to handle the economy, polls show, even with more than 40 million Americans filing jobless claims and growth stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Biden, who has held online events from home during the shutdown, should be out in communities across the country demonstrating how to reopen businesses while following public health guidance. He needs to show what life is going to be like and how we are going to do it.
  • Trump has staked his political future on the economy, pushing a return to normal. An improving economy could play to Trump’s strengths, said Ian Sams, an adviser at Navigator, a polling organization.
  • A Biden adviser said re-opening should be dictated by public health concerns and that phased approaches being done by most states make sense. “From an economic standpoint, the worst-case scenario would be opening up and having to shut down again,” the adviser said.
    Economists see a recovery beginning in the third quarter, with job gains expected at more than 2 million, according to a Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia survey. But those forecasters still see a double-digit unemployment rate by the November election. “The unemployment rate will probably be falling relatively quickly later this year and next year, but it’s still going to be at a very high level,” the Biden adviser said.
    “It’s not that we don’t want to reopen the economy,” prominent Michigan Democrat, Vaughn Derderian, the chair of the Oakland County Democratic Party said. “We don’t know what it means to reopen the economy safely.”

A badly flagging economy of course works more to Biden’s political favor than Trump’s. But it’s also possible that the economy will simply matter less in this election than in past presidential contests.

The economy has gone into recession, unemployment is at 11.1%, and record numbers of new COVID-19 cases could substantially boost unemployment yet again. Come November, the economy could be a strong headwind for the incumbent president.

The election is determined on the margins, in other words. Plenty of people know how they’ll vote, regardless of their income or even whether they have a job on Election Day. But for those people in swing states without strong party affiliations, the economy could nudge their voting decisions one way or the other.

Bottom line,  the economy will play a determining factor in the election.

Trump Didn’t Lie About Lying

HuffPost senior White House correspondent S.V. Dáte asked the president during Thursday’s coronavirus task force briefing if, after 3½ years, “do you regret at all all the lying you’ve done to the American people? All the dishonesties?”

Trump paused and then moved on to the next question.

According to a running fact-check database by The Washington Post, Trump has made more than 20,000 false or misleading claims since taking office. Last month, as the tracker passed the shocking milestone, the project’s editor, Glenn Kessler, and fact-check reporters Salvador Rizzo and Meg Kelly wrote, “The notion that Trump would exceed 20,000 claims before he finished his term appeared ludicrous when The Fact Checker started this project during the president’s first 100 days in office.”

According to the database, he reached nearly a thousand false claims about coronavirus alone in just a matter of months.

The Agenda: Attack

Democrats are using their House majority to push their impeachment agenda.

Democrats are using their House majority to push their impeachment agenda… Or at the very least, impeachment craze. There are Democrats who understand that pushing this impeachment craze will bolster the re-election bid of President Trump. President Trump declared his bid to run for re-election as soon as he was elected. The Russia investigation was an attack on his re-election campaign, it was never about his Administration.  Democrats are struggling with figuring out how to motivate people to vote for them.

Betrayal

79% of voters believe that illegal immigration is bad for America.

Up to  46% of voters nationwide supported President Donald Trump when he proposed sending illegal immigrants straight to sanctuary cities. As a country, we can’t handle more than 100,000 people per month coming into the United States in manners inconsistent with our laws and regulations.

But when we have politicians and places that advocate for letting these people come into the United States in manners inconsistent with our laws and regulations, does it not make sense to assume it would be okay, let alone welcomed to send these people there?

Almost half of all Republican voters consider illegal immigration a national security threat for America. Many Democratic politicians consider illegal immigration to be a non-issue, let alone a security issue.

Why are Democratic politicians in heavily Democratic cities opposed to taking in the poor, down on their luck migrants they rant and rave about in the streets?

How can Democrats argue that illegal immigrants strengthen our sovereignty as a nation?

Politicians who oppose getting control of the people who enter this country in a manner different than the way in which the laws/regulations prescribe, must contend with one fact: 79% of voters believe that illegal immigration is bad for America.

You can be pro-immigration while requiring that people follow the rules. In what other example does this same logic apply?

Some people may not believe that passing a test should be required to obtain a drivers license. Maybe they should deem those who want to uphold the requirement of passing a drivers test anti-driver.

Some people may not believe that passing an exam should be required to become a doctor. Maybe they should deem those who want to uphold the requirement of passing an exam anti-doctor, anti-healthcare.

Let’s go back to the quote above, 79% of voters believe that illegal immigration is bad for America. Question. Does this quote mean that 79% of voters don’t want ANY immigrants?

No.

Here is another fact to be considered: 29% of voters think granting legal status to those illegal immigrants already here is more important than dealing with illegal immigration.

There are more voters that believe illegal immigration is bad, than there are voters that believe that we need to immediately grant legal status to the illegal immigrants already here. So when politicians say we need to “deal with the illegal immigrants here before we can deal with the illegal immigrants on their way or at the border” be advised that they are not representing the will of the American people.

If you are one of the people that have been mislabeled for simply asking questions, know this… It is okay to ask questions, and you should.

When you get on an airplane, they ask… Who are you?

When you apply for a job, they ask… Who are you?

When you go to the welfare office for welfare benefits, they ask… Who are you?

When you start school, they ask… Who are you?

When you start a business, the Secretary of State and IRS ask… Who are you?

In this country, when you travel, you are asked for identification. Why can we not ask for identification from the people traveling here?

In this country, when you try to positively impact the economic status of your family, you are asked for identification. Why can we not as for identification from those coming to this country seeking to positively impact the economic status of their families?

In this country, when you are down on your luck and need help from the government, you are asked for identification. Why can we not ask for identification from those seeking help from our government?

In this country, when you make a decision to increase your earning potential, by means of an education, you are asked for identification. Why can we not ask for identification from those who have made a decision to increase their earning potential, by means of an education?

In this country, when you start a business, the Secretary of State, in your local state, and IRS ask for identification of the individuals behind the organization. Why can we not ask for identification from those who wish to release their entrepreneurial genius here in the United States of American?

Who are you?

This is a fundamental question of American society.

Some people say that President Trump could not have been serious in making the suggestion to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. We think he was, and is, serious, but for the benefit of this post, we’ll give the other side the benefit of the doubt and assume they are right. Let’s assume the President wasn’t serious about sending illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. Should this assumption detract from our nations need for a serious debate about the best way to address the problem of illegal immigration?

Here’s one last fact to consider: Politicians in sanctuary cities, they can’t have it both ways, they can’t demand the nation take in illegal immigrants while closing their city and state borders to illegal immigrants. Do you want them here or do you want them to leave, make up your mind.

Rejecting Sanctuary State Status

Is wanting your state to be safe, by means complying with Federal Immigration Law, hatred?

Does it seem like only one side is being heard on this issue?

How much influence should non-citizens have over American Immigration Policy?

When politicians fight to ensure their non-citizen constituents will be admitted to the U.S. and allowed to remain here, are they working directly against the best interest of the American people?

Donald Trump, by no means, is the perfect President. We can’t even say, as an organization, if we would have supported him during the election. But what we can say now, is that since his election, we have seen a new willingness, on the part of various government agencies, to listen to the other side, our side, on this issue. Is it because of Donald Trump? We can’t say with certainty. But what we can say, is that government agencies are now listening to both sides, those wanting sanctuary state status, and those in opposition to sanctuary status. We may not be in a perfect place, be we are in a good place, compared to where we were.

For those that reject sanctuary state status, know this. While we may not be in a position to see exactly what we want, a United States of America free of any sanctuary states, we are at least now living in a United States where we are being listened to. Does this mean that some people aren’t calling us racist for wanting a safe and secure America? No, this still happens. This does mean however, that if you use your voice, and speak up about the issue, you will be heard.

If enough of us ban together, together, we can get the message across that sanctuary states are wrong, and they must go. If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, stand with us in opposition to sanctuary states.

 

Letter To Employers Not Hiring American Workers

Dear American Employers:

President Donald Trump has prioritized revitalizing the American job market, but he can not do it alone, he needs your help. It is preferable that you request job applicants to either hold US citizenship or work authorization from the Federal Government. If you are not going to hire American Citizens, please hire employees whose work permits don’t expire. Please be informed, if you hire immigrants with green cards, and reject job applications for applicants who do not possess a green card, you are NOT discriminating against non-citizens.

Take comfort in knowing that companies like Discover Financial Services, Delta Air Lines Inc and Intel Corp are among those getting more skeptical about the citizenship of job applicants. Making this move for yourself, your company and our country will be done in lockstep with profitable, ethical corporations. Your company doesn’t have to be as large as Discover Financial Services or Delta Air Lines, you can still do your part to help revitalize the American job market.

We should be striving to find and develop homegrown talent. There is a massive skills gap our nation is facing. But, as a country that values both personal and shared responsibility, I ask of you one thing. Please reconsider those American job seekers who apply to your vacant positions, but only possess 80% of the skills, experience or education you desire, or require. Consider that you can take an individual, the right individual, and make an investment in them, in your company, and train them on the skills or education they lack, assuming the gap or costs are not too great. For job applicants that lack experience, but are running strong in the education and skills department, consider giving them an opportunity to gain experience, potentially on a contractual basis, with compensation tied to performance. Sometimes, the best people may not look the best on paper. If given the opportunity, the right candidates may turn out to be the best thing to happen to your company.

You play a vital role in the recovery of our economy, please don’t allow people to take jobs from U.S. workers. We have to end the theft of American prosperity, which has been brought on by low-wage immigrant labor.

Thank you.

BMSig
