First 100 Days of Trump

Approaching the 100-day mark of Donald Trump’s presidency, every media outlet and pundit is pontificating about what kind of job the “Donald” is doing. I’m going to weigh in on this at the risk of making everybody mad at me. Just remember, its my opinion and there are many others. First and foremost, Donald Trump is in his first 100 days a better president than the previous one, and most certainly a better president than Hillary Clinton would have ever been. While facing criticism on who he has appointed and how long it is taking him to do certain things, he has pragmatically accomplished a great deal of his campaign promises during his first 100 days—promises that are overall good for America.

Many Christians are complaining about Trump not being a true Christian and that he has appointed this liberal or that moderate to a position, proving he is not what he said he was. When was the last time you saw the ex-“president” attend church on Easter Sunday? The Trump family did, and it wasn’t an uncommon appearance according to his pastor. Also, remember that we didn’t elect a pastor, we elected a President. This particular President is different than anything we have seen in modern history. He doesn’t fit the political mold to which we have been accustomed. He is pragmatic about how he gets things done—like a successful businessman would be. He doesn’t care so much about the person’s political ideals as he does about whether the person is competent to get the job done, meet deadlines, and accomplish goals.

Lets look at some of the drastic changes that have occurred that are good for your personal security and general welfare because of this new Administration: Jobs—he has received commitments from companies to stay in America or bring their business here to create and sustain—real jobs—not “shovel ready” government make-work jobs. Border Security—Trump and his Attorney General Jeff Sessions have significantly decreased illegal immigration and immigration from terrorist sponsoring nations. Just because the courts have opposed them, doesn't mean the intent of their policies are not working. He appointed a conservative to the Supreme Court—imagine what Hillary would have done. Most importantly for our security from a prophetic standpoint, he reversed the caustic relations with Israel that have plagued America for a decade.

I’m not an apologist for this President, but he has accomplished these things in the face of the strongest opposition in modern history. I don't think people realize just how close we were to a Marxist coup of our government. Many don't want to believe that the forces working against Trump are real and, quite frankly, dangerous. Any normal man would be consumed by just defending our nation against these revolutionary evildoers. There are people who want to destroy the Republic and the Constitution and they have manipulated about half the country into believing their lies. This may be the gravest threat of Trump’s entire presidency. Things might not be changing fast enough for some, but they are changing.

He’s not perfect, but something to consider: It took us a long time to get into this mess—probably the only speed bump along the Post-WWII way was Ronald Reagan. So this globalist track is entrenched. It will not be removed over night. And there are some political realities that Trump faces in trying to remove people and ideals. I also don’t know of any president in recent history who has faced such harsh opposition to everything he is trying to do. So I never expected Trump to be able to do all that he said he would do. I did expect him to put the brakes on some of the horrors that were running out of control—I think he has done that. Proverbs 29:2 says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bear rule, the people mourn.” Going forward, let’s count our blessings and pray for the best for our country. 


​​Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
