Trump’s Accomplishments: The Case for Four More Years

Written by Kathy Valente

There are many people who do not like the personality of President Donald J. Trump and his unorthodox methods of communicating. Some have even gone so far as to say that they couldn’t vote for him because of his temperament and/or boorishness.

Having concerns about or aversions to President Trump’s style is understandable. You don’t have to like him. When it comes to picking the commander in chief of the United States, we believe that voters should carefully consider President Trump’s record of achievements over the past four years and his goals for a second term. That record and agenda should be compared to the 47-year record and platform of his opponent, Joe Biden.

Please, take a few minutes to review some of what he’s done for America — often against overwhelming odds and with powerful special interests aligned against him.

Focus on the accomplishments, not the personality. Focus on his vision, agenda and determination to gets things done and keep America on the right track moving forward. There is little doubt that President Trump loves the United States of America and wants to do what is best for the nation.

This is not a complete record of what President Trump has done for America. For a more comprehensive list of President Trump’s accomplishments, click HERE.
