The inflammatory rhetoric and baseless criticism by Democrats, Republicans, liberals and conservatives against President Donald Trump from the time he won the 2016 election until now serves only one grossly inappropriate purpose: to prevent the fixing of the multiple domestic and international problems that were either created by or worsened by President Obama.
Every Republican campaigned on the repeal and replacement of Obamacare and lowering personal and business taxes. They, along with candidate Trump, said they wanted border security, an end to the problems with illegal immigrants, a strong military to defeat Islamist terrorists, etc.
These problems need to be addressed and resolved promptly, and it is time for all Republicans to realize two things. First, Mr. Trump’s successful campaign helped elect a Republican majority in the House and Senate that can pass and, with Mr. Trump, enact legislation. Second, it is incumbent upon the GOP to work with the president to keep their promises to the people who elected them.
