Democrats have attacked President Donald J. Trump for more than seven years. The vile and vicious efforts to destroy the man who made America a wonderful and prosperous nation are unrelenting and continue to this day.
While Democrats believe they will eventually turn Trump’s supporters against him through burnout, exhaustion, or fatigue, they are sorely mistaken. The bottom line is this: So long as Trump stays in the race, he will continue to have the unwavering support of millions of Americans.
While the presidential election is a little more than one year away, Democrats have intensified their efforts to destroy Trump. Their goal is well-planned out and sinister in nature: indict Trump on various charges and in multiple jurisdictions, most of which are strongly anti-Trump, keep him busy during the primaries and general election, deplete him of funds (bankrupt him), or try to prevent him from taking office by way of the Fourteenth Amendment.
No matter what Democrats do, millions will vote for Trump
Despite their sinister efforts, Democrats need to understand something very clearly: Nothing they do will prevent those Americans who support Trump and the America First movement he leads from voting for him. More particularly:
- We will vote for Trump despite the weaponized indictment in New York.
- We will vote for Trump despite the weaponized indictment in Florida.
- We will vote for Trump despite the weaponized indictment in Washington, D.C.
- We will vote for Trump despite the weaponized indictment in Georgia.
- We will vote for Trump despite the weaponized and politicized civil suit in New York.
- We will vote for Trump despite the politicized efforts to remove his name from the ballot in various states.
Trump supporters love America and cherish their freedoms
While Democrats and anti-Trumpers refer to such loyalty as “cult-like” in nature, this label entirely misses the mark. Those who support Trump are not cultists but Americans (many millions strong) from all walks of life who cherish their freedoms and long for the day when America is once again free, prosperous, and respected.
The loyalty and devotion many have for Trump and the America First movement is not blind, nor does it reflect some form of idolatry. Rather, Trump has earned the unwavering support and continues to do so. He has fought against the deep state. He has put his freedom on the line to improve America and help Americans prosper. He has risked a very comfortable life of luxury and glamour to make America great again. Clearly, Trump did not need to run for president years ago. He did so because he loves America and was concerned about the direction the country was headed.
There are many reasons why Americans support Trump
Those who support Trump do so for a myriad of reasons. Some support him due to his successful economic policies. Others support him for his strong border policies, which severely limited illegal immigration. Many support him because they know that he is the only one who will fight against the establishment, drain the swamp, and prevent America from becoming a police state (which is what is currently happening).
In addition, many support him because they seek a leader who will better the economy, reduce the prices of gas, food, and other basic necessities, reduce inflation, and reduce taxes (particularly on the middle class). They support him because he has promised to make America energy independent, safe, and respected again, push back against China, protect and (once again) rebuild America’s military, and defend America’s borders.
Trump has also vowed to thwart efforts to indoctrinate children in schools throughout the country, protect the Second Amendment, defend the Constitution, nominate/appoint constitutionalist judges/justices to the bench, help to promote peace in the Middle East and save America from permanently becoming a socialist or Marxist country under Democrat control.
Americans know Trump can deliver on these promises due to his highly successful record as president. A list of many of his previous accomplishments can be found here.
Trump is the only one who can save America
Trump is the only person who can simultaneously withstand the Democrats’ onslaught, forcefully and effectively push back, and get things done. His persistence, intelligence, leadership, toughness, and tremendous social media presence terrify those seeking to destroy him and his movement.
While some allege that a different Republican candidate offers a better alternative and provides a better chance of winning the general election, such claims lack merit. Out of the entire pool of Republican candidates, only Trump has been president. Moreover, Trump is the only person with the proven experience needed for the difficult job ahead. He is also the only person who can point to a successful record as president.
Moreover, Trump is obliterating all Republican candidates and Joe Biden. This has been the trend and is not the result of one “outlier” poll. It is also why Trump need not debate the other candidates, which has nothing to do with fear and more to do with the fact that he is easily beating all candidates by a substantial margin and is in a completely different league. The two GOP debates showed that Trump is simply the superior and most qualified candidate and that the others are not presidential in nature.
Those claiming Trump is afraid to debate sound ignorant, considering what the 45th president has done and continues to endure, given his record of standing up to or negotiating with the leaders of China, Russia, Iran, and other countries.
A recent statement from Trump campaign senior advisor Chris LaCivita perfectly summed up the situation regarding the other Republican candidates:
With election season rapidly approaching, Democrats need to understand one thing: Despite their unrelenting and vicious efforts to destroy Trump, they will never build a wedge between the millions of Americans who support him and the American First movement he leads.
To the contrary, more and more Americans are realizing that Trump is the only person who can reliably be counted on to save America. So long as he stays in the race, he will continue to have the support of millions of Americans, who will vote for him without reservation.
