Weekly Wrap-Up

“President Trump may have come to Washington to ‘drain the swamp,’ but now he’s finding out that it’s full of nasty swamp creatures," Investor's Business Daily warns.  "And, as he’s also discovered, they bite.” 

Media elites are outraged by President Trump’s press conference this week, but here’s a news flash: the President’s words played very different with his supporters than with inside-the-beltway journalists.

What was your favorite quote from President Trump’s Thursday press conference? There’s a lot to choose from – I’m interested to see how people respond to this first question in our new Weekly Poll.

It doesn’t help the media’s case that they keep peddling recycled propaganda and fake news under the guise of “journalism” – and the media’s endless double standards fuel more distrust.

How would you describe the national media’s coverage of the Trump Administration? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll. 

Talking about the economy, President Trump said, “It’s a mess. At home and abroad, a mess.” And there’s proof of this, as we can see that under the Obama Administration the United States steadily lost ground on economic freedom.

Here’s the third and final Weekly Poll question: What do you think is the BEST thing President Trump and Congress can do to get the U.S. economy moving again? 

Options range from repealing Obamacare and reforming the tax code to ending overregulation and curbing the destructive influence of labor unions (more proof this week that both of these goals are being achieved). I’m interested to see what friends of the Conservative Party think.   

Have a great weekend!
