Coronavirus Will Give President Trump His Biggest Win
MAGA can use the coronavirus to crush globalism.
The peace and prosperity of President Trump’s first term in office was his biggest reelection asset, but also the greatest roadblock to his agenda. A strong economy and a lack of major domestic threats lulled much of the country into a false sense of security. These golden years, in sharp contrast to the economic malaise and regular terror attacks of the Obama era, made it hard for many to feel a sense of urgency.
The border crisis was remote for most people. As were the continuing deaths in Afghanistan.
The media’s torrent of smears and hit jobs, the sabotage of the administration by the bureaucracy, and a Democrat House bent on impeachment, made D.C. politics into the single greatest national crisis.
And that was exactly how they wanted it.
The Democrats didn’t really think that they could impeach President Trump and the media didn’t seriously believe that its hit pieces would force him out of office, but they contrived to divert the attention of the White House from its agenda with its Weapons of Mass Distraction. And many conservatives likewise became so focused on these political stunts that they lost sight of the big picture.
We kept all our attention on the inside baseball of D.C. which was just what the Democrats wanted.
The coronavirus crisis breaks up the peace and prosperity of the first term. It makes the path to a second term more challenging. And it makes President Trump a wartime president, empowered by public fears to take all the actions that he needs to lead this country through the crisis and secure a second term.
The Democrats don’t allow a crisis to go to waste. That’s sleazy, crooked, and corrupt. It’s also politics.
Every time there’s a disease outbreak, House Democrats leverage it to secure funds for abortion. They did it during the Zika outbreak. Now they’re doing it again. Speaker Pelosi wants funding for the social welfare state and for the infrastructure of community organizers and lefty activists behind it.
And the Democrats will get their way unless Republicans take the initiative by setting an agenda.
The media falsely claims that President Trump was unprepared for the coronavirus crisis. The truth is that the problem was exactly what Make America Great Again warned about.
