Is this a contradictory outcome? No, it is not. It seems to me that the answer is evident: President Trump was elected and has done pretty much what he promised to do and generated the results that have benefitted so many people. But important segments of the country have persistently opposed the President through fair means and foul. They have stirred up antagonisms that few countries can survive. It is an open question whether our country can survive it. The President’s opponents have told America that there is no peace so long as President Trump remains in power. The opposition to Clinton/Obama was never this shrill or threatening.
The average American knows that policies pursued by President Trump have been good for them personally. The threats of the opposition portend things that are not good for the country. The people have what may seem a hard choice to make: reestablishment of prosperity or peace. I hope they choose prosperity.Published in
