Donald Trump is an American business magnate and actor who functioned as the forty-fifth President of the United States until 2021. He’s a celebrity known for his appearances on television and in films such as The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice, among many others. He is also famed for his successful social media presence, in particular Twitter, and for his multiple company deals around the world. He has become a controversial figure because of some statements he’s made regarding Mexico and the United States taking a harder stance on illegal immigration.
In early August, President Trump sent out a tweet asking “Who’s at the top in the race to get the next Presidential administration job?” In response to the news that Sarah Palin was chosen to serve as the vice president position in the Trump administration. President Trump later told reporters that she was on his “very shortlist” for the position.
Less than two months after taking office in January of this year, President Trump addressed the United States Senate from the first speech of his Presidency. In his address, President Trump said that he was passing the torch to his successor at the White House, saying that he looks forward to working together with the next president to”usher the prosperity.” He referred to former President Obama as a “Good President” and praised him for his work at Obama’s first term. He also took a shot at his chief competitor in the 2020 election, Mitt Romney, saying that the former Massachusetts Governor was a “scorched vet” whom no one ever liked to run against.
Two months later, President Trump hosted a major rally in Pennsylvania, addressing hundreds of fans. In his address, President Trump called upon each and every single U.S. taxpayer to”take charge” and help to shape the future of America. President Trump also repeatedly referred to the importance of the United States Supreme Court, asserting that the current vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court is”not acceptable” and”ridiculous” because millions of Americans are out of work and struggling to make ends meet. The president went so far as to state that he would have nominated Mitt Romney for the U.S. Supreme Court if it weren’t for the fact that President Obama chose someone who was a Massachusetts liberal-socialist.
The United States citizens, and many members of Congress, were impressed with President Trump’s performance in the second presidential election. According to exit polls, Trump received over twice the aid of Mitt Romney, who received about eight percent of the vote. If President Trump can figure out how to secure the legislative branch and keep the Senate in his control, it is extremely possible he will have a chance to enact as many of the policies of his campaign promise as possible. If the Democrats can somehow retain the Senate, they will have to manage a President Trump who will be more inclined to cooperate with them on all policy issues. The resistance to the Trump agenda is likely to increase as congressmen and women learn just how much power and influence the Trump administration truly has in their hands.
President Trump is likely to take the governorship after he’s re-elected. His odds of passing any significant legislation or royal commissions are very good considering how much support he received from the voters during the election. He also took office at a time when the U.S. fiscal policy is controlled by the Obama administration, which is working to reduce the federal debt and raise taxes for the United States citizenry.
The president will also need the cooperation of congress to get his agenda passed and it’s doubtful that he will be able to get his preferred law, called the Affordable Care Act, passed through the U.S. house of representatives or the U.S. Senate without the help of members of congress. President Trump made it very clear that he is not interested in negotiating a deal through congress, but instead he plans to”fight for” the policies he thinks are right for the American men and women. If the president can somehow get enough congressional Republicans on board along with his schedule, the odds of getting the affordable care act passed in its current form are quite excellent. With the House and the Senate split into two parties, there is little doubt that the president will need to work with both houses of congress to get this legislation passed.
One of the many areas where President Trump can use his bully pulpit to promote his policies is to the importance of the Supreme Court. The Democrats are attempting to use the court to challenge the validity of the president, while the Republicans are doing everything in their power to keep the government operating. The president has made it clear that he does not wish to see that the supreme court reduced, but it’s widely believed that he may use his bully pulpit to get the Republican congress to get behind his nominee, Merrick Garland. If the president can garner enough support from both Democrats or the Republicans for the nomination, he will have an ally at the court and potentially get the high court to eliminate the prospect of a divided verdict in favor of Mr. Garland. Whether that ends up happening or not, it’s one of the numerous opportunities the president has to use his bully pulpit to promote his policies and make America great again.
