Hugh Hewitt: Framing the Trump Legacy

Donald Trump’s legacy will be framed by his actions between now and the inauguration.

He won in 2016 against all odds—and went on to four years of knockdown battles with the political, media and legal establishments.

He awakened the American people to the threat from the Chinese Communist Party, brought new peace and alliances in the Middle East, isolated the rogue regime in Iran and rebuilt the U.S. military.

He saw through three—count them, three—Supreme Court justices and more than 220 judges total. He can claim the first realignment since Ronald Reagan in 1980—all in the face of the most partisan impeachment in U.S. history.

His actions over the next 60 days though can frame his legacy and secure that place in U.S. history.

They ought to be focused on Operation Warp Speed delivering vaccines and therapeutics while the nation and the world witnesses a smooth transition of power.

It will be a glorious pivot in the story.

Lanhee Chen: The CCP Tightens Noose on Hong Kong

Chinese leader Xi Jinping is sending a message to Washington: Regardless of who is in the Oval Office, their authoritarian crackdown on Hong Kong will continue.

Beijing just passed a resolution permitting the expulsion of any Hong Kong legislators who aren’t sufficiently loyal to the Chinese Communist Party. Hong Kong’s chief executive, who is loyal to Beijing herself, immediately kicked out four legislators; prompting another 15 in the 70-seat Hong Kong legislature to resign a few hours later.

Xi and his allies are tightening the noose on Hong Kong, exerting more and more power over it. This latest action comes on the heels of a sweeping national security law passed over the summer, which installed more of China’s security apparatus in Hong Kong and significantly limited freedoms of speech and protest traditionally granted to its residents.

The Chinese Communist Party has made its intentions toward Hong Kong clear. It’s now up to the US, and our allies who believe in freedom and democracy, to stand against Beijing’s bullying.

Hugh Hewitt: President Trump and the Elites

If President Trump makes a comeback—and pulls off yet another upset victory on November the 3rd—it’ll be because he relied on the disgust of the elites.

Trump will again run on a platform of America first, and on rebuilding the economy he built once until it was shuttered by the novel coronavirus. He’ll point to his clear-eyed view of today’s aggressive and assertive Chinese Communist Party and the strengthening of our military build-up: a growing Navy, the Space Force and the revitalized nuclear deterrent.

Trump will also run on his massive deregulation, and the appointment of justices and judges who are faithful to the Constitution.

An often hysterical media endlessly chants the same anti-Trump refrains.

But voters have to ask themselves: Which man do they want squaring off against Xi Jinping, rebuilding the economy, appointing judges, funding the military?

Trump can embrace the disdain of the elites. And—yes—he can win again.

Hewitt: An Impressive Record of Accomplishments


President Trump has record of accomplishments that’s pretty easy to compile.

Most significantly, he has brought the existential threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party into the sunlight.

Trump has buttressed the constitution—with two justices on the Supreme Court, 53 judges on the federal courts of appeal and over 140 district court judges.

President Trump’s tax cuts—along with his massive deregulation—led to 3.5 percent unemployment until the regime in Beijing acted with criminal recklessness towards a virus that has devastated the world.

Trump’s brawling, slugging, tempestuous approach has worn down many, but his road is marked by these accomplishments.

The elites are convinced he must be beaten. But Americans want their jobs and security back. They like the police. They like civil order.

Yes: Polling shows him behind 50-year D.C. insider Joe Biden.

We’ll see.

I feel pretty good about President Trump’s chances.

Hewitt: The Disdain of the Elites


If President Trump makes a comeback—and pulls off yet another upset victory on November the 3rd—it will be because he relied on the disgust of the American people with elites.

Trump will again run on a platform of America first, and on rebuilding the economy he built once before until it was shuttered by the novel coronavirus. He’ll point to his clear-eyed view of today’s aggressive and assertive Chinese Communist Party and to the strengthening of our military build-up: a growing Navy, the Space Force and the revitalized nuclear deterrent.

Trump will also run on his massive deregulation, and the appointment of justices and judges who are faithful to the Constitution.

An often hysterical media endlessly chants the same anti-Trump refrains.

But voters have to ask themselves: Which man do they want squaring off against Xi Jinping, rebuilding the economy, appointing judges, and funding the military?

Trump can embrace this disdain of elites that is widespread. And—yes—he can win again.

Lanhee Chen: A Clear-Eyed View of China

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a major speech last week, outlining a new approach to dealing with China. For many years, American policymakers have assumed that as China became more prosperous, it would become freer, more open and a responsible member of the international community.

We now know these assumptions were wrong.

So what do we do about it?

The Trump Administration is proposing a more clear-eyed view of China. We must recognize that the Chinese Communist Party is espousing a morally bankrupt ideology. Communism and socialism have never worked, and never will. We must, in Pompeo’s words, “engage and empower the Chinese people.”

And we must also join with the free nations of the world to push back on the ideology of the Chinese Communist Party. Pompeo suggested a new alliance of democracies.

That’s exactly the kind of bold action we need—to meet this great challenge of our time.
