Tremendous first day for President Trump: 3 Key moves to Make America Great Again

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

President Trump’s first official workday in office on Monday was an important one for him and his team to get off to a solid start, especially after what can only be described as a rocky weekend after the now infamous Sean Spicer media briefing on Saturday. 

While there was some unfair coverage and photos circulated by the media regarding the crowd size, and Spicer was correct to point out the FakeNews story claiming that President Trump had removed the Martin Luther King bust from the Oval Office, I don’t think I’m off base saying Mr Spicer could have handled the media briefing a bit better.

It’s not only the liberal left in the US who have reservations about what a Trump Presidency will bring though. Traditional conservatives, both fiscal and social, had major concerns surrounding just what a Trump administration would do as far as keeping the size of government small and avoiding some of the big government tendencies Trump appeared to admire.

Many claimed President Trump was a liberal democrat from New York, with New York values as Ted Cruz once said, so would he really represent the social conservative wing of the Republican Party once in office?

Well, President Trump proved them wrong yesterday.

Watch as I outline three key moves he made on his first day in office that will Make America Great Again.

On Day 1, President Trump quelled the fears of both fiscal and social conservatives with executive orders limiting the size of the federal government and ending international funding for abortions while at the same time performing a coup on what is one of the largest Democratic constituencies in trade union leadership and membership.

This was a tremendous first day for President Trump, PERIOD.

Winning again.

1) Ending the financing of over sea abortions
2) Approving Keystone and other pipelines
3) Streamlining environmental process for industry
4) Freezing out the MSM in his pressers – Spicer gave New York Post the first question
5) Blocked 221 million in PLA funding
6) Cutting grants to sanctuary cities
7) Funding the wall and deporting criminals
8) Refugee ban coming
9) Cutting UN funding upwards of 40%

The Planned Parenthood defunding my guess will be a long haul. It now has to pass the Senate. They get $500 million a year. I had no idea until Sean Hannity mentioned it yesterday. This will mean the end of PP. I can’t imagine the left giving this up without a fight.

The US stock market just hit another record. The Democrats said the Country was finished under Trump. Michelle Obama said " The country has no hope now that her husband is gone."
Yes, its great to see the poor losers suffer; it will even get better when Trump takes away the lefts free stuff.

This is only one day , the left is going to be frothing at the mouth for the next 8 years, man i am gonna enjoy it. The liberal media and the progressive idiots will be so much more entertaining when they do not get their own way, the hateful comments and excuses will be spewing forth like Bill Clinton on an intern.

1. The US House has approved legislation to ‘permanently’ prohibit tax payer funded abortions. No other government will be able to change this amendment (known as the Hyde Amendment) back ever again. Imagine if Canadians didn’t have to fund abortions. http://www.lifenews.com/2017/01/24/house-passes-bill-to-permanently-ban-taxpayer-funding-of-abortions/
2. If anyone ever debates you on the role of Planned Parenthood as a provider for health care, refer them to this article. Again they have been exposed, through an undercover sting, on providing pre-natal care. 92 out of 97 PP clinics said no, only abortions. http://www.lifenews.com/2017/01/24/planned-parenthood-caught-denying-women-prenatal-care-92-of-97-abortion-clinics-turned-them-away/

Again I’ll say read the article by Lawrence Solomon in the NP about Trump being a conservative. The bulldozer is coming and no lefty will be left unscathed. There’s lots of fun on the way.

I absolutely agree with Trump calling out the lying MSM for their ‘very unfair’ biased reporting. I guess I just thought the whole deal over who drew the biggest crowd was too childish to have much interest in it so I didn’t pay that much attention to it. If I missed something then I stand corrected. The way America, indeed the world, was so captivated by the fact the first half black person had been elected president it wasn’t much of a surprise to me that he might have drawn a larger crowd. I just didn’t think it was so important. I figured who cares? You won already so let’s get on with it. It worried me that he just looked petty and egotistical and that certainly wasn’t going to help his image much. I do hope though that he can stay focused on the important stuff but yes call out the media when it’s appropriate to do so by all means.

Next: Planned Parenthood. Praise be to God.

Elton Braun:
Trump asked the crowd at one of the inauguration balls if he should continue tweeting….they said ‘yes’. Maybe the media doesn’t like the tweeting and will do anything to attack the tweeting because it is disrupting the power trip they are on, but he is reaching the average Joe out there and reaffirming he is working for the average person.
Spicer didn’t ‘lie’. He presented the entire viewing, crowd/tv/social media. I don’t think the argument is whether the crowd was less than Obama’s, just not as few as the media was claiming. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/01/24/fact-check-inauguration-crowd-size/96984496/
Trump is standing up to the media and taking away their power. How many have wanted him or someone to finally to do this?

Disagree with you Elton. The media are making a big deal out of the attendance at the inauguration and lying with photos taken before Trump took the oath. Sean Spicer in his first official appearance as press secretary made it clear that he expected truth in reporting and that he (Spicer) would also be held to the same standard. Spicer acknowledged that sometimes mistakes and inaccuracies happen but that everyone should try to maintain this high standard. This was a very nice way of telling the media that the white house is not going to put up with any fake news and he nipped the problem in the bud on the very first appearance in the press room with all of the fake news media in attendance.

Policy wise Trump is definitely off to a great start. He’s surrounded himself with excellent people and has a lot of good plans and ideas. However, he has to get a grip on his ego and grow a thicker skin or he’ll end up wasting far too much time and energy on irrelevant distractions. Forcing Spicer to lie for him because he couldn’t accept the fact that more people attended Obama’s inauguration than his own when it was so obvious to everyone was childish and a big mistake. People are tired of politicians’ lies and Trump needs the trust of as many Americans as possible. The sooner he can adjust to being president the sooner he can stay focused on making America great again.

Look at Trump go! Bringing manufacturing back to the US. We were all told manufacturing was over. Over because government wanted it to be over?

Donald Trump, pen in hand, in the Oval Office! WOW!
There’s a lot of people out there with a lot of hope invested in this man…and his mandate!

Maybe this time the mebers will tell the leadership where to stick it. The members made the move to Trump before the Union Bosses. We shall see.

Labor unions backing Trump is a good sign but not necessarily a moral victory for Trump – You recall these are the same special interest elites who supported the Globalist Dems while they sent millions of their members jobs off shore.

Big labor is one of the oldest whores in the Beltway, they sold out their members to gain political power decades ago, from Hoffa onward they have been a mouthpiece for hire for whatever party wants to give their execs the best pocket money.

We will see where the union support sits when the Dem donor class come knocking on their door with payola to knife Trump (and their members) in the back.

The left is in a state of total meltdown. Trump is piling up the victories and the credibility of the MSM is getting to be even less than it already is. In a way the left has done Trump a favour by setting the expectations for Trump so low.

Give the Guy a chance, he is new on the job.

According to Skynews, Trump has also signed the go ahead for the Canadian Pipeline, that Obama blocked.

It’s up to you now, PM Trydo.

Trudeau and his gang of communist thugs are scared shitless of Trump.

Trump hit the ground running even before his inauguration. I wish we had a PM like that.

Yet another win, and a big one!

If Trump keeps this up the US will be unstoppable. Go Trump Go!

Now, how do we get the same thing to happen in Canada … …
