The damage done by Barack Obama is slowly being reversed.
Donald Trump has made several moves to get America back on course.
And Trump made one comment that crumbled Obama’s fracturing legacy.
Barack Obama did not believe in the concept of American exceptionalism.
He saw himself as a citizen of the world.
That fundamental problem is what made him such a bad president of the United States of America.
Conversely, Donald Trump unabashedly loves this country and is willing to put America first.
During a stop in North Carolina, Trump laid out in one sentence why Obama’s legacy is a failure.
Trump said to the audience, “You finally have a president who understands that I’m not supposed to be president of the world; I’m supposed to be president of the United States of America.”
This is undoubtedly true, and it’s why Trump has been successful in negotiating key deals, such as working out a new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico and convincing Mexico to be more vigilant in curbing the illegal immigration crisis on the southern border.
Trump continued, “Obama is more popular in Germany than Trump. He’s got to be. I’m making people pay their bills. The day I’m more popular than him, I’m not doing my job. They like him more in Europe than they like Trump. I think they should.”
Again, Trump is right.
He’s holding Europe accountable for chipping into NATO like they’re supposed to.
Obama was more concerned with Eurocentric policies, such as socialized medicine.
Obamacare was a terribly flawed system that laid the groundwork for a government takeover of health care, which is seen throughout other western countries.
For example, in Canada, private health care is literally illegal if the service is provided by the government.
If people don’t want to be put on a government waiting list for months and months, they either seek black market care, or they travel to America.
Hospitals in Seattle and Detroit routinely see Canadian patients from Vancouver and Toronto respectively.
In the United Kingdom, the NHS (National Health Service) is essentially in control of all of your medical decisions.
Over the past two years, two British infants, Charlie Gard and Alfie Evans, were forced to die in UK hospitals because the NHS wouldn’t allow their parents to remove them from the hospital and seek experimental treatments in America and Italy.
That is fundamentally un-American.
Also, Obama hampered the economy by punishing businesses with burdensome regulations.
Trump’s tax cuts and deregulation efforts have allowed the economy to breathe.
Meanwhile, European economic growth is in the toilet.
Almost all innovation, particularly in medicine, is coming out of the United States.
Some European countries are even offering negative interest rate bonds, meaning you are actively losing money by investing them.
The only reason negative interest rate bonds exist is because there’s a fear that money could lose value at an even faster rate than the negative yield.
Obama also negotiated the terrible Paris Climate Accord, which would’ve shackled the U.S. economy while putting zero accountability on other nations.
Trump pulled America out of the deal, and yet America still reduced carbon emissions by a wider margin than the other countries, particularly China and India, the world’s two biggest producers of carbon by a significant amount.
Trump’s America First agenda is working, and globalists like Obama can’t stand it.
