It will look like chaos

Looking at the outcome of the election, I see mixed results for President Donald Trump and the Republicans. They were probably never going to hold the majority in Congress. History was not on their side for that. They gained important seats in the Senate. That’s where we confirm supreme court justices if another pick should come along. Democrats can’t impeach Trump if they don’t control the Senate. I’m thankful for what Trump has accomplished in his first two years with the majority compared to what Obama accomplished.

Trumps first two years gave us record low unemployment numbers, record stock market, rising wages, and two conservative picks to the supreme court. Trump renegotiated NAFTA and we now have a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada. Currently Trump is putting the squeeze on China with their unfair trade practices, and we have no new outbreaks or conflicts overseas to speak of. North Korea has released hostages and return the remains of war dead from 60 years ago. Consumer confidence is on the rise, NATO’s now paying more for their security, and manufacturing jobs are coming back to America. Under Trump, America is the number one energy producer of oil and natural gas in the world because of the lifting of regulations to those industry. And ask the coal states what they think about the return of coal jobs to their states.

Remember Obama first two years with a majority? We got Obamacare. That was suppose to fix health care and now 8 years later the Democrats are still running on health care. Democrats are talking about all the investigations they want to do now that they control the Congress. They want to look into the whole Russian thing again. Look into Trumps tax returns. Look into Trump firing James Comey. How is any of that going to help the people that voted for them? In two short years from now when the next presidential election is upon us, what will the Democrats be able to say they did with their majority in Congress and why they should now get control of the white house? Some were elected saying they want to abolish ICE, raise taxes, write off student loans and have free Medicare for all, even for illegals. Here’s what I predict. I think the Democrats in Congress are going to have trouble keeping all those new Democrats on the same playbook, moving in the same direction. I think it will look like chaos. I think voters will look at that in two years and say, “No Thanks.” Am I wrong?
