Donald Trump is an American business magnate and actor who served 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 several others. He’s also famed for his prolific social media presence, specifically Twitter, and for his multiple company deals across the world. He has become a controversial figure because of some statements he’s made concerning Mexico and the United States taking a harder stance on illegal immigration.
In early August, President Trump sent out a tweet asking “Who is at the top in the race to get the next Presidential administration job?” In reaction to the news that Sarah Palin had been chosen to serve as the vice president position at 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 another president to”usher the prosperity.” He referred to former President Obama as a “Good President” and commended him for his work at Obama’s first term. He also took a shot at his chief competitor in the 2020 election, Mitt Romney, stating 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 supporters. In his speech, President Trump called upon each and each U.S. taxpayer to”take charge” and help to shape the future of America. President Trump also repeatedly referred to the significance of the United States Supreme Court, claiming 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 could have nominated Mitt Romney for the U.S. Supreme Court if it were not 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 manage to secure the legislative branch and keep the Senate in his control, it is very possible that 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 need to deal with a President Trump who will be more inclined to collaborate together on all policy problems. The resistance to the Trump agenda is bound to increase as congressmen and women learn just how much power and influence the Trump administration truly has in their hands.
President Trump is very likely to take the governorship after he is re-elected. His chances 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 increase taxes for the United States citizenry.
The president will also require the cooperation of congress to get his agenda passed and it’s doubtful he will have the ability to get his favored law, called the Affordable Care Act, passed through the U.S. house of representatives or the U.S. Senate without the support of members of congress. President Trump made it quite clear he is not interested in negotiating a deal through congress, but instead he plans to”fight for” the policies he believes are right for the American men and women. If the president could somehow find enough congressional Republicans on board along with his agenda, the odds of getting the affordable care act passed in its present form are quite good. With the House and the Senate split into two parties, there’s 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 on the importance of the Supreme Court. The Democrats are trying 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 already made it clear that he does not wish to see the supreme court decreased, but it is widely believed that he may use his bully pulpit to get the Republican congress to get behind his nominee, Merrick Garland. If the president could garner enough support from either the Democrats or the Republicans for the nomination, he’ll have an ally at the court and possibly 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 many opportunities the president must use his bully pulpit to promote his policies and make America great again.
