Writing political pieces can be risky, because politics can easily offend people. I decided to upload a short report I had to do for school, and I hope that some of you can push aside any bias and truly consider what it says.

Despite the criticism and harsh comments of the media in their mission to turn America against President Trump, there’s solid evidence of his hard work for our nation that’s made it greater and safer than it has been for a long time.
The Supreme Court has tallied 289 accomplishments in eighteen different categories, and Trump is continuing to pile on the numbers. For those who are ignorant of Trump’s dedication to our country, I’ll be covering just a few of these monumental achievements.
In the second quarter of 2018, economic growth was up 4.2%, and for the first time in over a decade, it’s expected to rise 3% over the next year.
The employment rate is also growing. Since the election, four million new jobs have been created, and since Trump took office nearly 3.5 million.
More Americans are employed now than ever before. The record job-growth streak has been surpassed during Trump’s time in office. For the first time ever, job-openings outnumber the number of people searching for jobs. Unemployment is at a fifty year low. Not only this, but worker-productivity is the highest it’s been in years.
In 2017, the average American’s income rose to $61,372, the highest it’s been since the recession. Paychecks rose by 3.3% between 2016 and 2017.
For the first time in history, the median income for Hispanic-Americans went above $50,000. Not only this, but there are most Hispanic home-owners than there have been for a decade.
As business has become a very important source of America’s free-market wealth, it’s vital that consumers and producers are confident and ready to take risks. According to Washington Examiner, small business optimism is at an all-time high.
Due to tax cuts, investment is growing more popular in America. Over $450 billion dollars have already been brought back into the US, $300 billion of this sum during the first quarter of 2018.
Some argue that Trump is ‘unfriendly,’ but why are they so busy judging the president by his public demeanor and ignoring his accomplishments? The media spends so much time focusing on the little things they can find to make Trump look bad that people don’t consider his efforts to ‘make America great again.’ If people took the time to find the facts themselves, they’d learn that Trump’s accomplishments have, according to the Supreme Court’s scoring, passed those of Ronald Reagan.
No, we did not elect Trump to be our friend or small-talker. He is the president of the United States of America, and what our nation needs is a leader who can prioritize. One who can keep track of money, and as a great businessman with an enterprise worth about $3.5 billion Trump is just that. He is strong-minded and confident, and he stops at nothing to keep the promises he made to us and make America secure and prosperous.
So why is it that the media is constantly at his throat? Do they feel threatened by him because he doesn’t let them tear him down? Is our society just that over-run by liberals?
President Trump is doing great things for our nation, and perhaps one-day people will see this themselves instead of listening to what others tell them. Perhaps.
