When I read or hear blatantly false statements from the Trump resistance citing a total failure of his leadership, I'm first amazed by the fabrication and then baffled by the rationale. Then I think back to the election results of 2016 and the mournful regrets thereof. Even as one party must suffer the agony of defeat, the voice of reason should remain.

American voters spoke loud and clear on Nov. 8, 2016, with 304 electoral votes for Donald and 232 for Hillary Clinton, making Mr. Trump the 45th president of the United States under constitutional law, a solid win.

President Trump has established a respectful record of keeping his promises to the voters who elected him, on both domestic and foreign policy. The economy is booming due to tax cuts and regulation rollbacks, vital military spending has increased, manufacturing jobs have increased, legislation has been signed to deal with the opioid epidemic, the U.S. Embassy in Israel has been moved to Jerusalem, ISIS has been destroyed, two Supreme Court justices and 29 federal judges have been confirmed, a travel ban protecting American security as been imposed, unemployment has been reduced across the board, and the list goes on and on.

Although President Trump has established an impressive record of accomplishment, opponents from the left argue total failure in the face of documented facts. Deliberate dissension of the facts from the opposition party reverts back to election results and an unhinged resistance unable to impart the voice of reason.

As America begins its post-Obama comeback under President Trump, and that shining city on the hill comes into view, the left is ignoring the voice of reason in an effort to return to Obama's vision of transforming America. Why do they so despise 2 1/2 centuries of American pride and valor that has culminated in the greatest country on earth?

The call for a better life throughout the world always creates the image of America. Don't allow their failure in dealing with defeat to destroy that image!
