A New GOP Future — Beyond President Trump

The Congressional Budget Office now projects that economic recovery in 2021 will be faster than it predicted last July. It projects that the economy will be back to its pre-pandemic levels by mid-2021. This very good news reflects the fact that the economic turndown was not as severe as the CBO had expected, and that the recovery was stronger than expected.

Former President Donald Trump, recently rejected for reelection by American voters, can take full credit for this.

These are the dividends of the strong economy that the Trump administration put in place through well-directed tax cuts and deregulation.

Let’s again recall that last September, 55% of Americans told Gallup that they were “better off now” than they were four years ago. This is the highest percentage since Gallup first asked the question in 1984.

Most astounding is that this question was asked in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. Yet, most still saw themselves better off than four years earlier.

Across the board, the Trump presidency was transformational and indeed went a long way to “make America great again.”

Among many important accomplishments, Trump departed leaving an economy much stronger than the one he inherited, likewise with our court system and the support received by the pro-life movement to end abortion.

It is also essential to note how he remarkably achieved peace accords in the Middle East that no one ever dreamed possible.

That there are peace accords between Israel and a lineup of Arab and Muslim countries — the most recent announcement coming from Kosovo, a majority-Muslim Balkan nation, which has announced its intent to open an embassy in Jerusalem — is mind-boggling.

We might say that just as Donald Trump defied convention in getting elected to the presidency, he defied convention in failing to get reelected.

Despite tangible and meaningful achievements, Trump departed with an approval rating of 34% and was the first president in history to not crack a 50% approval rating for the duration of his presidency.

I will leave it to others to speculate why President Trump failed to connect with sufficient numbers of American voters, despite a presidency of remarkable achievement.

One obvious answer is a decidedly left-leaning and hostile media.

Certainly, President Trump must take some credit for this failure with voters because of his personal style, which, to say the least, is not always the most endearing to those who are not already on board with him.

The extraordinarily strong Republican showing in House elections, with Republicans picking up 13 seats, enforces the sense that the repudiation of Donald Trump in the presidential election was not a repudiation of his policies and accomplishments but rather a personal repudiation.

The question is: What now for the Republican Party? How does the party pick up the pieces, regroup, refocus and advance forward once again?

I would suggest more focus on what, rather than who.

Republicans need to get the discussion back on agenda and away from personalities.

President Trump was taking America in the right direction. That direction, refocusing on the core principles that indeed made American great to begin with, is certainly the place to start: limited government, capitalism, sanctity of life, faithfulness to our Constitution and the rule of law.

As our national debt spins out of control, and as our new government, which thinks it can print and borrow money to no end, clamps down on business and individual freedom, America will again start down the wrong path that President Trump worked hard to get us off of.

As Republicans regroup, I think of the words often attributed to General MacArthur: “We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

  1. ACTUALLY the MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN CITIZENS RE-ELECTED OUR AMERICAN PEOPLE FIRST PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP and the WASHINGTON DC SWAMP DUELLERS UNITED to take him OUT and now trying to prevent him from ever running again. IT’S NOT UP TO THEM AND WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WON’T FORGET 🇺🇸

      1. How funny. The writer of this article said the majority of American voters rejected Trump. LOL The majority of American voters voted for Trump in the highest numbers in US History. And a small number voted for Biden. This was a coup. And we all know that. Trump votes were stolen, changed, rigged voting machines, dates changed, dead people voted. People voted in 2 states. There were after hours ballot dumps in almost every state. I won’t waste my time reading the rest of the article. Clearly the writer is a Democrat and therefore has no problem not being factual.

    1. YOU ARE RIGHT C. W. THE PERSON THAT WRITE THE STORY IS FULL OF CRAP
      AND IS ONE THAT SAY S THERE IS NO PROOF THAT THE ELECTION WAS RIGGED BUT IF IT SLAP HIM IN THE FACE HE WOULD STILL SAY IT>:
      THE COURTS DID THE SAME> ALL OF THEM ARE CRIMINALS>:

    2. Lies and idiotic behavior seems to be the norm for leftists these days, but hang on, they are too stupid to survive very long.

      1. They did all of this 1) Because they didn’t like Trump. 2) They want Total control of ALL things, foreign, domestic, monetary, and legislative.and 3)because they HATE us, the American populace, and want to push us ALL in to the mud.
        Money, money, money…

    3. Totally agree with you–and TRUMP won in a LANDSLIDE. WE KNOW ABOUT THE RIGGED ELECTION–WE WON’T FORGET!!

      1. Ok, we won’t forget. Question is, what do WE do about it?
        It seems obvious that seccession is the only recourse, yet noooo one seems to be willing to act.
        Ted Cruz should be getting the Republicans to wake up to this.
        If the Dems want to be the radicals they are proving to be, let’s seceed and I bet within a 2 year period the buttheads will be begging for help.
        Only 1 thing! Trump takes our office.
        Love him or not, he IS the best chance/choice to succeed the nsecession.
        Still My President!

    4. Chauncey, How can we as a people let our present politcal’s in Washington know we are fed up with the current admin. It’s hard fo Americans to soar with Eagles when the administration is made up DUMP DUCKS ?/

    5. That’s right, Chauncey. The election was stolen by the SWAMP CRITTERS who will do anything to protect each other, including lying, stealing elections, etc.

  2. He had & still has a much higher rating than being stated Election was stolen I would bet it’s even higher now that Biden is ruining our country I personally know Democrats that regret voting for Biden within the 2nd week of office BUT…. the corrupt news media will NEVER publish the real facts but that’s ok we are still here & growing it’s far from over!!

  3. I Sure hope the Democratic Marxist party do not alter what positive policies of Space force.
    And I sure hope he can get this keystone pipeline up going, so that people can have
    their jobs and lovely hood back ASAP. Also hope he freezes all funding for abortion too.
    I don’t like these fake politicians in the White
    House they are destroying everything good and positive that President Trump did for America.

  4. Make america great again, will forever lives on, get rid of the courption , we are coming bigger and better, than ever before, only this time we may run them Dems right off planet earth..

  5. I am so sorry that you and too many other citizens of this Great Country are not able to look at the evidence which was not examined by any court systems because of the left leaning politically influenced systems, and understand that, Indeed, the people of this Great Nation elected Donald J. Trump to a second term. The ballot stuffing voter fraud, the mail in ballots that were not sent in by A person that was legally voting, and the electronic manipulation of already cast ballots were used to change the will of the American People.

  6. President Trump DID NOT FAIL to get re-elected by the American Voters !!! He had a wonderful lead when he retired for the night on Election Day BUT the Democraps pulled off a rotten trick in the middle of the night and managed to STEAL the Election from President Trump !!! And when the evidence of this theft was presented to the courts they refused to even LOOK at the proof !!! Get your facts straight !!!

  7. they told lies against the best president of all times for 4 years everyday and somehow a deadly viris showed up in america right before election day its been told of 5 million joe biden votes from china showed up here right before election and all of a sudden for the first time in history they snuck in mail in votes how convenient for those lying democrats if anyone on this planet believes this election was legitimate u r on drugs or need

    1. The ones responsible for the cheating lying thieving and all that will someday rule the moment that they did such. All of those who thought they were helping a cause will remorsefully beg for mercy from the hands of those that they have done such evil deeds to. Those people will realize that they have been played upon, one might say screwed glued tattooed and abused for a very bad purpose. They too will become victims of their own wrongdoing. It’s a thing called poets Justice.

  8. The polls are most definitely bais because Trump always had supporters and great business skills that made this country what it is! This dog and pony show we’re seeing will destroy this country in a very short time! 50k jobs lost the first week! Unions support these clowns I hope there very satisfied with the results so far!!

  9. We must not allow the Democrats to push through HB 1 Bill! If your are not familiar with it look it up! They will voting with NO ID, vote on computers so everyone can vote and be no verification. Please sound the horn and let everyone know before they push this through in the dead of night! Call your reps and Senators or anyone and everyone!

  10. WHOM EVER TOOK THIS SURVEY OF THE SUPPORT THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS SINCE HE LEFT OFFICES IS LYING. PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS AS MANY SUPPORTERS NOW, AS HE HAD WHEN HE RAN FOR THE PRESIDENCY, AND MAYBE MORE. MEDIA AND SOCIAL MEDIA SPREAD LIES AND MORE LIES ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND WE CONSERVATIVES. BIDEN AND ALL THE MEDIA ARE BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE AND ONE OF THESE DAYS THE LIARS WILL SEE A REVOLT LIKE NEVER BEFORE…

  11. No doubt Trump won 49 states. I heard he won California & New York. We know he won Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin & I think I’m missing one of the swing states, but we know he won them all. It Took FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS TO STEAL the ELECTION FROM TRUmp and senate & house Republicans. Yep a whole long list, the evil Satanic cabal to steal our election! God continue to Bless President Trump and his family!

  12. We all adored trump..looked up to him..he told the truth..brought this country back on its fee..the eLection was fraudulently stolen from US..TRUMP ONE EVERY STATE..WE ALL KNOW THIS..and we have these thieves/liars to run our lives..TRUMP 2022..IN FACT TRUMP MAY 6TH..HE NEEDS TO COME BACK TO ALL OF US!

    “Former President Donald Trump, recently rejected for reelection by American voters, can take full credit for this.”
    Why do you publish FALSE information. ALL the people of this country know that President Trump won that election and when the corrupt left saw this, they took measures to steal the 2020 election. Your Liberal lies don’t mean a darn thing to us. You Will be branded as FAKE NEWS like the rest., and I will do all I can to help with that.

  14. Indications point to more violence from some of the radical nit wits. Violence only creats more violence. Biden had better start becoming civilized with his “executive actions” or he might find that he is on the wrong end of his pen.

  15. The YouTube Community Outreach Team regularly reaches out to users who may not otherwise get an opportunity to share their thoughts with us.

    We’re reaching out to you because members of the community were concerned about some of the comments you’ve posted on YouTube. We’d like to hear about your experience – please take a moment to complete our survey and share your thoughts. We’re here to listen.

    After you take the survey, someone from our team may follow up to better understand your feedback.

    1. Yes! Well I censored censored he may have censored the censored and his censored just that censored censored censored and that’s my opinion!

  16. Trump won the election, the legislatures not secretaries of state, governors, nor election officials of the contested states had the power to do or alter mail-in-ballots, aside from proven voter fraud and more has been proven since the election. Biden is not president of the US, the democrats know this and so does SCOTUS. Our country will rue the day in history that this senile old man was made president by biased news media and crooked politicians.

  17. Ms. Parker, while I agree and sympathize with the general tone and message in your column, I strongly disagree with two of your premises. First, President Trump was NOT “recently rejected for re-election by the American people,” as you wrote in the very beginning of your column. Please, remember that despite the corrupt media’s attempt to convince us that this was a fair and just election, it wasn’t. In fact, it was far from it. This election was stolen. For me and millions of Americans, it’s as simple as that. And before anybody responds with the usual talking points: “where’s the evidence?” and, “If there major fraud, then why have the courts rejected every lawsuit brought to them by the Trump Administration and his lawyers,” etc., please do not make the mistake of forgetting the only reason Trump has not been able to prove anything is because the cowards in our judicial system have refused to take up any of the lawsuits. They never listened to any evidence; they simply came up with cheap and stupid excuses in order to reject accepting even a fair hearing, such as “you have no standing.” How can you legitimately lose a case, when those who are charged with listening to the evidence refuse to at least give you an audience!?!?!? Second, I also disagree with the title of your column: “A New GOP Future-Beyond President Trump.” The reality is that there is no “New” future for the GOP beyond or without President Trump. He basically changed this (Republican) Party forever! It’s his Party now. Republicans in congress who are working against are realizing that their career in politics is in danger. So, they either get onboard with Trumpism and with the close to 75 million Americans who voted for him, or they can kiss their political careers goodbye. Either that, or join they can join the Democrat Party. Other than those two points, your I am in agreement with your column. But I do ask that you remember: Trump isn’t going anywhere. He will have a lot to say about the direction of the country AND of the Republican Party.

  18. Trump did connect with the people and his approval rating was much higher. He did not loose the election, it was fraudulent and there were many people and states involved in this farce. Is Biden the legal president not by a long shot. Trump did many good things for America because he loved this country. He was putting America first, which is the American people that created this country and continue to make it prosper. Unfortunately the Republican party establishment is as much to blame for the loss as the hate and content the Democrats carry for Trump. If Congress would have done their jobs instead of making up conspiracy lies and trying to ruin a President and his family along with other conservatives imagine what America would be like today. This isn’t about how bad a job President Trump did but how bad the others have done and continue to do trying to take this county apart and destroy its Constitution and standing in the world. Biden has done nothing the whole time he was in the Senate and now while in power he is doing more to destroy this county then he has ever done trying to make it better and more powerful. He is trying to shred the Constitution and laws in America and Pelosi has wasted more time trying to destroy lives and help everyone but illegals. Tell me what is wrong with this picture. Why haven’t Pelosi, Schiff, Harris, Obama and Biden being investigated with a special council as well as Clinton. I guess trying to impeach a past president will open up a whole new world to go after these people for the crimes they have committed after office!
