Until the early hours of November 9, 2016, I used to ponder my notion of an ideal American president.

In a nutshell, he would do all the things the middle and working classes needed for the United States to thrive once again.

He would confound high-brow economists who said, ‘[Effective economic solution] cannot be done.’

Fortunately, the United States has had that great man — my ideal — in President Donald Trump since January 22, 2017.

President Trump has accomplished what egg-headed experts — the brightest minds in the world — deemed ‘impossible’.

His accomplishments are too many to list here, but here’s a summary:

One of my readers, Daughn, had this to say about the president’s appeal on another site (emphases mine):

All the guys who were the academics, the ones who went to Harvard Biz/Yale Law, couldn’t deliver 3% GDP in the past decade.

And moms and dads paid for their mistakes. Red states were hollowed out. Our factories = gone. Homes = foreclosed.

It left America vulnerable, and it’s THEIR fault.

Chickens home to roost.

Even worse……

All the guys at Brookings/Council on Foreign Relations screwed up in the Middle East, couldn’t win a damn war in Afghanistan with trillions of dollars to spend and 20 yrs to do it.

And moms and dads in red states buried their sons and daughters.

Trump paid attention to the electricians, the guys who drive the trucks, the women who cut hair for a living….. they’re a whole lot smarter than those who were supposed to be leading the country.

The establishment of both parties has failed.

That’s an excellent summary, explaining why the much maligned president has been gaining ground since 2017.

Could we call him the People’s President? I think so.

With the coronavirus situation, President Trump has suspended his rallies for the time being. That does not mean we will not be seeing him out and about, though.

On Thursday, March 5, Fox News invited him to take part in a Town Hall forum in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Joe Biden’s birthplace.

It was the most watched cable news show in history (i.e. going back to the late 1970s):

Dr Dawn Michael makes an excellent point. Dems must have been watching, otherwise the figures would not have been as high.

Martha McCallum and Bret Baier presented the Town Hall, available here in full. What an exceptional 57 minutes — well worth watching:

I’m not alone in my opinion. This lady analyses election data. She has done sterling work so far in 2020. Here is what she had to say about the Town Hall:

The president was very conversational in his answers but didn’t miss a beat:

I don’t know who chose Scranton — Trump’s campaign team or Fox News — but it was perfect:

Those who do not have time to watch the show in full might enjoy viewing the highlights:

The president enjoyed the evening as much as the audience did:

Then it was back to the White House:

I am so grateful that I have my ideal president — the People’s President — during my lifetime.

Tens of millions of Americans would agree.

I will have more on the 2020 campaign soon.

In the meantime: MAGA!
