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.

Lanhee Chen: We Need Patient-Centered Health Care Reform

President Trump needs to tell the American people how he plans to fix our health care system if he wants to win reelection. It’s an issue that many Americans care deeply about, and one that the President and Republicans should not be afraid to address.

The contrast between the Republican and Democratic visions for health care could not be more stark.

Democrats have called for more bureaucracy and more government control in our health care system—changes that have only driven costs higher and diminished choices for patients. But their interest in a single-payer, government-run system shows that Democrats have grander ambitions ahead.

In contrast, President Trump and Republicans want a health care system where patients and doctors—not bureaucrats—make critical decisions. One with more choices at lower cost. And a system where we have access to cutting edge treatments and cures.

The choice on health care is clear. Now, it’s up to President Trump and Republicans to make the case for why they’re right.

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.

Hugh Hewitt: Trump at Mount Rushmore

On Friday night last week, the president gave a stirring and patriotic 4th of July speech at Mount Rushmore.

But the reaction from critics and today’s elite media is more telling even than any criticism I could give of the left.

From the Los Angeles Times: “At Mount Rushmore, Trump uses 4th of July celebration to stoke a culture war.”

And the New York Times: “Trump uses Mount Rushmore speech to deliver divisive culture war message.”

And the Associated Press: “Trump pushes racial division, flouts virus rules at Rushmore.”

And I could go on and on.

When you’ve got the left saying up is down and blue is red, then you’ve got obviously an inversion of truth and objectivity in the media.

The need for alternative voices—like mine—and alternative outlets—like the one you’re listening to right now—has never been greater.

Simply put: President Trump’s speech was one of his best.
