Weekly Wrap-Up

This week President Trump confronted the first great challenge of his administration. I believe the President is rising to the challenge, and his words after visiting Texas are inspiring: 

“In difficult times such as these, we see the true character of the American people, their strength, their love and their resolve. We see friend helping friend, neighbor helping neighbor, and stranger helping stranger. And together, we will endure and we will overcome.”

Even the New York Times is giving Trump some credit for his leadership, but of course liberals who hate Trump are finding ways to criticize him and especially the First Lady. The Left can’t even resist the temptation to take swipes at the American people in general. Sad, indeed.

How would you BEST describe President Trump’s leadership during the Harvey disaster so far? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll. 

Hurricane Harvey’s wrath is revealing the worst of Mother Nature, but the best of America.

What has inspired you the most in the American people’s response to Hurricane Harvey?  And what do you feel is the most important thing you are doing to help victims of Hurricane Harvey? 

Those are the second and third questions in our new Weekly Poll. 

If you want to give, here are some options – and I imagine JJ Watt of the Houston Texans will be cheered wherever he plays this football season, after his Texas-sized fundraising effort that is still going strong. 

This unfolding disaster is also showing the perils of Big Government, and will soon be a test for Congress – can lawmakers pass an emergency bill that’s not littered with pork spending? 

Meanwhile even a disaster can’t stop the left’s fake news.

Some good news amid this week’s tragedy: The economy is growing at the fastest pace in more than two years, and President Trump is launching his tax reform plan to “Bring Back Main Street” and accelerate our economy. Can he close the deal with the American people? 

Speaking of fake news, be ready for the Democrats’ endless tax cut lies.

Finally, Christopher Columbus is under attack – literally here in New York, and figuratively in California. President Trump called it – where will the political correctness end? 

Have a great Labor Day weekend!
