Hooray, Mr. President!

To the Editor:

The mainstream media is frantic. They are going nuts! No matter how they try to demonize, trivialize, ostracize or criticize, the Trump agenda is moving forward. Entire news organizations have devoted their energies to slowing down or halting our president. And they are failing.

The recent 5-4 decision by the US Supreme Court is just the latest in what will be a historic national turn-around in the direction of common sense. On June 26, exactly one year from the day it agreed to a temporary ban, the court handed down a decision confirming the president’s travel ban of people from specified countries. It is a huge victory for Americans, even if a large percentage of our population refuses to realize it.

AOL and their associates at the Huffington Post are running stories of the outrage of the Democrats and liberal groups over the decision. In related matters regarding immigration, the leftist Occupy Wall Street group is allegedly calling for their followers to stab ICE agents — rip their hearts out. Maxine Waters, the ditzy Congresswoman from — where else — California, has encouraged people to “push back” against members of the administration, in restaurants, on the street or anywhere. That can only be understood as encouraging violence!

In the meantime, the Trump administration is trying to deal with the mess at our border left over — perhaps created by — the previous administration. When the people coming here illegally bring their kids, it creates a huge logistical problem. We can’t put the kids in adult holding cells. We can’t let them roam free and get taken advantage of, and we can’t return them home, generally, without an adult. There are many critics of the administration’s policy, but no practical solutions offered.

So you keep doing as you promised, Mr. President. Make America Great Again!

Michael Mendola Jr.
