Each day, I receive thousands of messages and emails. Below are three of them from the past 24 hours, and the response I’ve given to each. NOTE: I do not include the last name of the sender unless they explicitly request that I do so.
PLEASE SEND YOUR MESSAGES TO ME BY USING THE SUBMIT NEWS PAGE.
1) From Thomas:
Refugees. As I have said before, send them to Hawaii!
DML: Like all countries, America should take in refugees, but the problem is, we take in more than we can handle. If we didn’t take in so many I don’t think people would complain about where they are resettled. Moderation is the key.
As for sending them all to Hawaii, I’m not sure why you’d want that to be the case, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. For starters, Hawaii would scream about the impact it will have on tourism. Second, it could cost taxpayers more money to fuel the welfare and support programs refugees tap into.
2) From Cathy:
Dennis. Do you think Obama is shocked that President Trump has been able to accomplish everything that he has accomplished, i.e. the auto companies building manufacturing plants, and other companies committing to building or staying in this country, etc? Do you think he is sitting at home asking himself why he couldn’t do that? It seems as if Preside Trump has done more in the fifty days or so that he’s been in office than Obama managed to accomplish, well, at all. Hope to hear your answer as I’m curious to see what you think. Cathy.
DML: Cathy, make no mistake, Obama accomplished a lot. His accomplishments hurt America, but he accomplished more than most presidents accomplish. He set out to fundamentally transform this country, and he was damn successful on many levels.
As for him sitting home and saying, “Wow, look at what President Trump has done so far,” no, I don’t think he is impressed with anything Trump does. All Obama cares about is that Trump does not disrupt his legacy. That said, Obama must feel good right now about how the GOP-filled Congress is working hard to keep Obamacare in place (wink, wink).
3) From Tom:
DML, President Trump has been in office for 50 days. Half way to the first 100 days in office used to measure the successes and accomplishments of a president during the time that the president’s power and influence are at their peak. How would you evaluate this time in office?
DML: The first 50 days are important because they establish how the administration will operate, and it places a foundation to build off.
Liberals will say his first 50 days were a disaster. They’ll focus on the anti-Trump protests, the war with the media, the silly tweets, the travel ban reversal, the Michael Flynn resignation, the Jeff Sessions recusal, the dragged-out Cabinet approval process, the cost to taxpayers for Trump making multiple trips to his Florida retreat, the lack of legislation passed, the Russia / 2016 election drama, and so on.
They won’t mention the two positive jobs reports, the stock market surge, the great meeting with Israel, the lack of terror attacks, the deportations, the numbers of illegal aliens at the border decreasing, the cut down on regulations, or the new travel ban.
For the next 50 days, I’d like him to be 100% focused on America and getting the issues tackled. In my opinion, he quickly needs to find a healthy replacement for Obamacare; he must lower taxes; and he must put measures in place that stop illegal aliens from working in America illegally. Otherwise, his first 100 days won’t be as effective as they should and could have been. But, let’s give him all 100 days before throwing stones.
