Thank You President Trump

Washington, DC

Dear President Trump,

On behalf of the conservative movement, we would like to thank you for the accomplishments your administration has achieved on behalf of the American people.

From a booming economy, to stronger protections at the border, to implementing strong protections for the unborn, to nominating constitutionalist judges to the federal bench, you have kept your promises to the voters that elected you.

Specifically, we want to applaud you for the following achievements:

    • A booming economy that has unemployment at its lowest level in fifty years, the highest median household income on record, a labor force that has grown by 2.1 million.
    • Poverty rates for African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans at record lows, and unemployment among women is at its lowest level in nearly 70 years.
    • Aggressively working to address the opioid crisis.
    • Signing the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 which resulted in more than 6 million American works receiving wage increases, bonuses, and increased benefits.
    • Rolling back nearly 8 regulations for every significant new one and cutting regulatory costs by more than $50 billion.
    • Repealing two particularly onerous regulations: the Obama-era Waters of the U.S. rule, and the Obama-era “Clean Power” Plan, and revoking California’s emissions waiver, all of which cost Americans millions of dollars and thousands of jobs.
    • Withdrawing America from the Paris climate treaty, which saved American families $20,000 a year.
    • Opening up federal lands and offshore areas to fossil fuel development and permitting the pipelines and infrastructure necessary to facilitate further development.
    • Signing the 2019 Executive Order to stop agency abuse of guidance documents.
    • Working to re-negotiate the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement to update the North American Free Trade Agreement and secure a better deal for American workers.
    • Keeping your campaign promise to build a new wall at the southern border.
    • Striking agreements with Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to help stop our illegal immigration crisis.
    • Taking action to reduce exploitation of our asylum loopholes, ensuring that the asylum process is there for those who truly need it.
    • Increasing cooperation with local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws.
    • Signing the Choice and Accountability Act to update and reform the Veteran’s Administration.
    • Ensuring strong protections of the Second Amendment.
    • A defeated ISIS caliphate and killing of terrorist leaders al-Baghdadi and Qassem Soleimani, both of whom were responsible for the deaths of Americans.
    • Recognizing Israel’s capital as Jerusalem and opening an American Embassy there, as well as recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
    • Withdrawing the United States from the ineffective and dangerous 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
    • Rebuilding America’s military, including instituting a Space Force, and supporting America’s men and women in uniform.
    • Appointing and securing confirmation for 187 federal judges who are strong constitutionalists.
    • Signing the 2017 Executive Order on Protecting Religious Liberty and the 2019 Executive Order protecting free speech on college campuses.
    • Ensuring that faith-based ministries do not have to choose between violating their religious beliefs by complying with Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate, or closing their doors.
    • Establishing a new Conscience and Religious Freedom division at the Department of Health and Human Services to direct the agency’s efforts to protect religious freedom and people of faith in the healthcare industry.
    • Proposing a rule protecting the conscience rights of faith-based adoption providers.
    • Being the first administration to host a meeting at the United Nations on religious freedom.
    • Reinstating the Mexico City Policy to end federal funding of groups that promote or perform abortion overseas.
    • Restricting Title X money from going to organizations that perform, promote, or refer for abortion, while continuing to promote women’s health care by funding organizations who do not.
    • Allowing state Medicaid directors to exclude abortion providers from their Medicaid programs.
    • Ending funding of new medical research using human fetal tissue obtained from elective abortions.
    • Re-issuing guidance stating that hospitals may be required to treat infants born alive after abortions.
    • Opposing efforts at the United Nations to make abortion an international human right.
    • Hiring strong conservatives for important positions within the White House.
    • Hiring strong conservatives for important positions within the White House.

We are proud to support the work of your administration and these tremendous achievements.
