A conservative explains why he has come around on the God-Emperor in USA TODAY.
Over the years, my caricatures of Donald Trump have evolved but not as much as my opinion of him.
When Trump announced he was running for president, I admit that I didn’t take this millionaire, hotel magnate, reality TV show celebrity as a serious candidate. I doubted his ability to do the job. So I drew him as a clown. In fact, my cartoons were as critical of him as many of my liberal cartoonist friends.Trump identified the problems and fixes….
His political promises were simple, repeated often and easily remembered — build the wall, repeal and replace Obamacare, cut taxes, destroy the Islamic State group, renegotiate better trade deals and make America great again. So how in the world did Trump change my mind? He started keeping those promises….
There have been a few hiccups. Trump signed a budget bill that increased the national debt, which is now over $21 trillion. The Russia probe is still a cloud over his administration, and I don’t like trade wars.
But here’s the dominating reason I’ve changed my mind about Trump’s ability to lead: judges. I support his picks of Justice Neil Gorsuch, his new U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the host of conservative federal judges that Trump has gotten confirmed.
I shudder to think of the activist judges that a President Hillary Clinton would have picked.
In my opinion, Trump has had the most successful 18 months as president than any other I’ve ever drawn. So yes, I support his presidency.
I admit that I was wrong about Trump. He’s not a clown. He’s a businessman, entertainer, and now the president that I didn’t want but now think we need.
Just wait until this guy discovers that Russia is our greatest ally and the trade wars lead to full-employment and stronger economic growth than we’ve seen since the 1980s. He won’t merely declare Trump a great president, he’ll start drawing him as the God-Emperor and calling for a crown.
The British pound fell and U.K. politicians reeled Friday from the tornado-blast of U.S. President Donald Trump, who humiliated Prime Minister Theresa May, dashed hopes of a quick U.S.-U.K. trade deal and praised May’s opponents in the high-stakes battle over Brexit.
Trumpslide 2020, baby! All hail the God-Emperor!
