President Trump – Pilloried by the Press, Lefty Luving Hollywood Elite and Politicians With Their Heads in the Trough – Yet Adored By the American Public – His Record in His First Year In Office Is Enlightening

 

 

 

     

 

 

In Defence of President Trump

In just about any other circumstance the people of Scotland would praise the achievements of “The  Donald” attributing them in some measure to the Scottish blood coursing through his veins. And they would be right to do so.

But credit for his political success gaining the presidency of the US against all the odds, is being denied him by a vicious sustained and unjustified campaign orchestrated by a sinister group of individuals who choose to press unsubstantiated allegations of wrongdoing on Trump.

They are assisted in their mission: the removal of the President from office by those who backed President Obama and Clinton including the bulk of the Hollywood “luvvie” establishment intent on retaining the privileges granted to them by the previous political regime.

With control of the media almost exclusively in the hands of lefty leaning leadership “The Donald” has been subjected to lampooning and ridicule in excess of that visited on Adolf Hitler.

Scots need to remember the 2014 Scottish referendum and the behaviour of Obama and Hilary Clinton who actively campaigned against Scots who wished to remove Scotland from an “Act of Union” which had been imposed on the nation by corrupt politicians for their profit.

I fully expect President Trump will fulfil his promise, to “drain the swamp” that is the corrupt  Washington establishment. Scots should ignore the hype and extend the hand of friendship to him when he next visits Scotland

An examination of his achievements in his first year of office gives lie to those who insist he is a flawed character whose abilities for high political office are questionable
