With the United States of America in total disarray under Biden, and with so many conservatives hemming and hawing over Trump versus DeSantis 2024, I figured it would be fun to post on Facebook the 10 things I would do in the first 7 days of my presidency if I was elected.
As I expected would be the case, my ten “to-do” items sparked a slew of comments on the social media network, most people saying they’d vote for me. And then of course there are the naysayers, people who think they know more than they do. These folks tell me I am wrong, or they express thoughts and comments that are far from reality and truth.
Below are the eleven things I listed (I added one for good measure). Under each of them I will offer a comment left by a reader. And then I issue a response. Have fun reading.
Deborah Sturgess commented:
That is exactly what needs to happen(br>
DML:Trump helped build a great energy sector, Biden destroyed it. But not to the point of gonzo, we can get it back!
2. Shut down border declaring national emergency due to drug epidemic.
I’m sure that’s exactly what President trump will do!
DML: Trump had 4 years to do this sort of thing, but he didn’t. Drug overdose deaths climbed to a record high in 2019. There were 70,980 reported deaths from overdoses in 2019, surpassing the peak of 70,699 deaths in 2017, according to CDC data. The numbers represented a 4.6 percent increase from the previous year. The numbers only got worse during Covid when Trump shutdown the country. We are now over 100,000 deaths to drugs. Every president vows to win this war, but none go far enough.
3. Executive order for mandatory e-verify and launch task force to fine every company who hires illegal aliens.
Almost all of which #45 did while president !
DML: Untrue. Most of the items on the list were overlooked by Trump, or his efforts came up way short. He never tweeted one time about e-verify. He told Steve Hilton of Fox News in a LIVE interview that it would be too hard on employers to find workers with mandatory e-verify. Trump went as far as to say he tried using e-verify when building his Trump hotel in DC, but it was near impossible to find a legal applicant. If that isn’t a head scratching response. what is? In short, Trump didn’t want e-verify because he didn’t want to piss off the US Chamber of Commerce, a pro-immigration lobbying firm who fights for cheap labor and who was invited to strategize with Trump when it came to immigration. Sickening.
Rose Ann Vachy-Bright commented:
Trump did all of that and more.
DML: Trump said his administration would deport as many as 3 million illegal aliens with criminal records living in the United States. From fiscal years 2017 to 2019, ICE agents arrested and eventually deported around 205,000 convicted criminals and about 36,000 immigrants with pending criminal charges. Overall, Trump was no where near the promised 3,000,000 and so his friends at the US Chamber of Commerce had to be happy.
5. Stop all immigration to USA until every American is living the American dream.
# 5 is really not realistic, but I like where you’re going here!
DML: CarolMae is wrong. A key part of immigration law does give the president broad power. It says, “Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.” I would deem them all to be detrimental at this point in time.
6. Return tax money to tax payers by calculating the amount of money sent to Ukraine, Mexico, Latin America and Canada during Biden’s time in office. All taxpayers would receive their prorated share, and then going forward those countries would never see another dime because I’d allocate it all to hardening schools, getting homeless off the streets, and increasing numbers of border agents.
Dennis when and how much did Biden give Canada??? Never heard that
DML: Believe it or not, Canada was slated to receive more than $50M in 2020 and 2021, not sure if they received the money or not. Either way, there’s no need to send them money, and if it makes everyone feel better I will remove Canada and insert Afghanistan. But make no mistake, under the Constitution, the President of the United States determines U.S. foreign policy.
Kim Bradbury commented:
#7, DOJ needs to be taken over by some other agency
DML: No it doesn’t. It just needs the right people in place. Trump did a terrible job hiring, how many AGs did he go through? He loved them all then hated them all. As for the current AG, Mr. Garland, he would be out of a job. I’d ask either Sen. Cruz or Tom Fitton to be in charge.
8. Give all members of military a raise.
Susan Tamayo writes:
Did you send that list to Trump???
DML: Trump gave the military a pay raise, I give him credit for doing so. I would tack on more as they deserve it more than the money being earned by Congress.

Few points you can, few points you cannot! As president you cannot fire Fauci, but there’s other legal ways you might make it happen.
DML: Some people eat the veggies and mashed potatoes after they eat the meat, others mix it all together and eat it like a pie. In the end the plate is empty. Point being it doesn’t matter how he is removed. Trump left Fauci in place. Bad move. Fauci needs to be taken out of his position one way or another using whatever legal instruments available.
10. Tell China we ain’t borrowing another dollar, we’re not paying any of our outstanding loans due to their illegal hacking initiatives, and any land in the US owned by the Chinese government or Chinese companies they set up or invested in will be confiscated immediately and given back to the states. We no longer wish to do business or trade with the enemy.
Carol Tillison stated:
Run for President now and I’ll vote for you!
DML: I received a lot of those statements, and I am humbled. But for now I am focused on helping people stay healthy by providing CBD products that boost the immune system, improve sleep patterns, curb anxiety and diminish pain. With tens of thousands of happy customers who feel great again, I am sure my campaign would have a nice kick start as they’d all vote for me I hope. Which reminds me to remind you that the 60% OFF deal at DMLcbd.com/mint ends tomorrow. When I am finished being the king of CBD maybe I’ll run for governor in Florida because Lord knows there will be an opening in 2024 when Mr. DeSantis moves into the White House.
11. Because I’d over deliver, the 11th thing I’d do is make it impossible for George Soros to fund another campaign. Not sure how I’d do it, but my team of conservative lawyers would find a way.
YES!!!! I’d support these initiatives 100%!! Republicans need to have a similar platform and have all on the Republican side sign off on them!!
DML: I agree. It will take the right sort of leader, I think DeSantis fits the bill. My time isn’t now.
