Success Trumps Criticism

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 10, 2017

         WITH ALL THE FUROR BY DEMOCRATS AND THEIR BIG MEDIA ALLIES OVER PRESIDENT TRUMP, THERE ARE SOME SUCCESSES STARTING TO TAKE PLACE THAT SHOULD EVENTUALLY OVERCOME THE CRITICISM.

         FIRST, THE NUMBER OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS CROSSING OUR SOUTHWEST BORDER HAS PLUMMETTED IN THE WEEKS SINCE THE INAUGURATION. SMUGGLERS HAVE UPPED THEIR RATES FROM $3,500 LAST NOVEMBER TO $8,000, FURTHER CONTRIBUTING TO THE DROP IN CROSSINGS. AND THE WALL HASN’T EVEN BEEN BUILT YET.

         SECOND, CHINA, WHICH HAS BEEN RELUCTANT TO REIN-IN ITS CLIENT STATE NORTH KOREA MAY BE ABOUT TO DO SO AFTER A HIGHLY SOPHISTICATED MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM WAS SHIPPED TO SOUTH KOREA FROM THE U.S.  IT’S IN RESPONSE TO THE NORTH’S TESTING OF BALLISTIC MISSILES, WHICH FELL IN THE OCEAN CLOSE TO JAPAN.

         THIS IS THE WAY TO DO THINGS. CHINA IS NOT USED TO BEING CHALLENGED. THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DID VIRTUALLY NOTHING ABOUT CHINESE ACTIONS. WHILE THAT ADMINISTRATION CLAIMED IT DEPORTED LARGE NUMBERS OF ILLEGALS, IT LET MORE IN, INCLUDING VIOLENT FELONS, SOME OF WHOM CROSSED THE BORDER MULTIPLE TIMES TO COMMIT NEW CRIMES, INCLUDING MURDER AND RAPE.

         PRESIDENT TRUMP IS ON THE RIGHT PARTH AND SHOULD KEEP AT IT. I’M CAL THOMAS N WASHINGTON.
