Full title: Newt Gingrich: Trump has accomplished more than Clinton, Bush, and Obama combined - this is just the beginning
With his historic summit Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, President Trump has once again done something astounding and unpredictable.
Yet, the surprise over the sudden summit should not have come as a surprise at all. By now we should be used to President Trump surprising us. Consider his record over the last four years.
Four years ago, in June 2014, almost no one would have dreamed Donald J. Trump would be a serious candidate for president. Then, nearly three years ago, when he announced his candidacy on June 16, 2015, almost no one thought he could be a dominant candidate.
In fact, my own conversion to Trump as a very real contender only occurred after his July 11, 2015 rally in Phoenix, which led my former colleague, Vince Haley, to come in the office and say: You had better watch what Trump is doing because his Phoenix rally was emotionally powerful when he turned the microphone over to the father whose child had been killed by an illegal immigrant.
Then, on August 6, 2015, I watched Trump gain the support of nearly a quarter of registered Republican voters (24 percent) in a CNN/ORC poll after the first Republican presidential debate. This was a huge lead in a field of 16 other candidates especially given that 58 percent of those asked had a favorable view of Trump.
Still, all the elites fervently believed Trump had lost the debate. The gap between the American people and the elites had never been clearer.
Two years ago, in June 2016, all the elite pundits were certain Trump would lose the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. Once again, they were wrong.

> and they still don’t have a 2020 candidate.
I think that will be the case until Hillary is dead or behind bars. Not only does she still think she is a contender “cause she was robbed, robbed, I tell ya”, but I’m sure she thinks running for office gives her some sort of immunity from prosecution, in that she can claim the prosecution is political.
Anyone who tries to dismiss her from the stage is putting their career and possibly their life in mortal danger. I think most D politicians are praying for her demise (figuratively or literally), so that they can run for high office without looking over their shoulder.
Now, I do not believe everything is done. We are not entering a Pollyanna world of being close friends with North Korea.
Not now but look how we felt about Japan in 1948 - 20 years later we were friends, now absolute allies.
“Give 0 credit for one thing, he devastated whatever bench depth the Dems had.”
AND nearly allowed the Dems to go almost bankrupt, and allowed their organizations to wither on the vine ... Obama basically didn’t do squat for anybody or anything other than himself ...
The Korean summit has the MSM at a new low to find something bad to say about our President. It shows their TDS to the country.
“I think I’d pass on one of his sons, however President Pompeo is looking promising. “
you could be right ...
“He deserves a place on Mount Rushmore. Not joking.”
i agree. 100%
You’ll never get the granite to do his hair justice!
I forget who it was...some talking head on tv...who said politicians don't want to fix problems because if the health care or immigration problem disappears, then they don't have anything to run on.
I am so thankful that we have a plain-speaking, goal-oriented president with common sense who has the best interests of the country at heart.
Amen to that!
“Youll never get the granite to do his hair justice!”
They'd have to plant a yellow birch forest on top....
Plus he has been giving being POTUS serious consideration for decades along with IDing issues and developing potential solutions. Apparently there are all sorts of media appearances on all sorts of issues.
APR 30, 2018, President Trump met with Nigerian President Buhari. Trump asked Buhari if it was true that Christians were being persecuted and attacked in Nigeria, and promised more military equipment deals in their fight against militant Islam.
The next day, multiple bombing attacks (using young boys, most likely sent by Boko Haram) killed 60-80 people.
The MSM was utterly and solely focused on why the two leaders didn't discuss Trump's "s***hole countries" remark, and decided that the sudden turnaround on the security of oppressed and butchered innocents wasn't nearly as newsworthy.
Nigeria has bought a dozen A-29 Super Tucano light fighter aircraft in a $496 million deal. Trump indicated a further order for attack helicopters was also in the pipeline. These new aircraft will improve Nigerias ability to target terrorists and protect civilians, Trump told a joint news conference with Buhari in Washington on Monday. The sale of the aircraft was previously blocked by the Obama administration
People need to see that djt>rwr
Best POTUS in my lifetime.
Two presidents and one community organizer.
Well said Chris, that’s why it’s important to enjoy the moment, it’s all we have.
I do not want to vote for any of those do nothing, lying ass jerks again. I do not want them, I do not need them at all. None of them.
+1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 - until I run out of zeros
More like from Truman on ....
