Opinion: All the ways Trump is better than Obama

Here are some of the startling contrasts between Presidents Obama and Trump:

Obama experienced numerous scandals within his administration — Justice Department, FBI, NSA, IRS, VA, TSA, Secret Service, Fast & Furious and Hillary-gate — but impeachment was considered racist. Trump is about to be impeached for a harmless phone call with the Ukrainian president.

Obama should be held accountable for the Democrats’ devious plot to keep Trump from becoming president (read the Horowitz report). Trump has kept promise after promise despite a Russian collusion investigation that proved to be untrue and relentless attacks by Democrats who can’t accept the election results of 2016. 

Obama approved a massive stimulus bill during his first year in office, but much of that funding was squandered on needless projects. Trump secured a major tax cut and the stock market has seen more than 100 record highs in less than three years. 

Obama saw the national unemployment rate peak at 10%. Trump watched this rate plummet to 3.5%, the lowest since 1969. 

Obama lied about the Affordable Care Act and imposed a mandatory tax penalty on citizens without health care coverage. Trump reversed this unfair policy. 

Obama and company talked about building a wall on our southern border. Trump is building this wall and illegal immigration has dropped significantly. 

Obama is adored by the lap-dog media. Trump is hated by fake news hypocrites.

Obama was the “regulator-in-chief.” Trump eliminated hundreds of cumbersome federal regulations.

Obama nominated liberals Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court and was president when same-sex “marriage” became federal law. Trump nominated conservatives Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, and perhaps Roe vs. Wade will be repealed eventually.

Obama signed a terrible nuclear agreement with Iran that included the return of $150 billion in frozen assets. Trump axed this deal and increased sanctions on Iran.

Obama is no friend of Israel. Trump restored this crucial relationship and moved the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Obama looked the other way when North Korea tested missile after missile. Trump imposed tighter sanctions on North Korea and, after two meetings with dictator Kim Jong-un, missile firings have decreased.

Obama tolerated many unfair trade agreements with certain foreign nations. Trump renegotiated these deals, including the United States/Mexico/Canada Agreement that will create thousands of jobs for Americans.

Obama drew a “red line in the sand” against Syria and did nothing when this nation poisoned its people. Trump deployed troops to Syria and Iraq and annihilated ISIS.

Obama refused to send a rescue team into Benghazi, Libya, and four brave Americans, including ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed. Trump sent special forces into Syria and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the ISIS leader, is dead.

Obama allowed our military might to deteriorate during his eight-year presidency. Trump secured $686 billion and rebuilt our military in less than three years.

Obama traded Bowe Bergdahl, an Army deserter and traitor, for five imprisoned Islamic terrorists. Trump pardoned Mathew Bolsteyn, Clint Lorance and Eddie Gallagher, true American heroes.
