It’s Time for America to Thank God for President Trump

Years ago, while I was seriously dating a wonderful woman I had met at the church we both attended, I was having lunch with a friend who knew us both.  

He asked me, “How’s it going?” 


Attempting to be honest and transparent, I responded, “She’s great, but she does have some flaws.” 

That was when my friend came back at me with the unexpected.  

“Then you must dump her immediately. You owe it to yourself to move on and keep looking until you find that special someone who is perfect like yourself.” 

Now, there was some wisdom from an older man that as a younger man I couldn’t muster the fortitude to loathe. 

In fact, that is the same advice that comes to mind when I encounter those who attempt to hold to what they maintain is a higher moral ground—i.e. virtue signaling—by refusing, for now over six years, to look beyond the imperfections of President Trump, and at least simply acknowledge the host of ways by which he was able to accomplish good things for America since he first took office. 

This is not a reference to members of the progressive left who would maintain their hatred of Trump no matter what.  

Rather, it is regarding self-proclaimed conservatives—and particularly many professed Christians—who have continually maintained their disdain for this President, notwithstanding his accomplishment of things like: twice enabling this country to experience a booming economy; controlling inflation; securing our borders; lowering our taxes; rebuilding our military; maintaining functional supply chains; providing us energy independence; and, keeping our gas prices reasonable. And that’s before we even get to the return of many manufacturing jobs that previous administrations had allowed to be exported abroad.  


These are just a few of the ways that immediately come to mind by which President Trump enabled so many people in this country to once again be proud to be an American.  

But, looking forward, even these accomplishments are likely to pale in comparison to the unforetold miraculous events that are likely to continue coming our way for years to come due to his successful appointment of conservative judges, not only throughout jurisdictions across America, but especially those three vacancies he filled on the United States Supreme Court. 

A case in point: that Court’s miraculous decision last week to finally overturn Roe v. Wade at the federal level.  

Before the 45th president came to the scene, it is doubtful anybody in this country on either side of the aisle could have reasonably expected that to ever happen.  

But then along came President Trump. 

By successfully appointing highly qualified conservative judges like Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, he empowered the other two conservatives on the bench—Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas—to miraculously join forces to accomplish together what many prior to Trump thought impossible. 

All of which brings us to an undeniable bottom line—without President Trump, this most likely would never have happened. And this, in turn, leads us next to another undeniable conclusion: those who have sought the reversal of Roe v. Wade for years, and yet think they can still justify maintaining an anti-Trump moral high ground are deluded hypocrites. Quite simply, such a position can no longer possibly be reconciled honestly on the basis of either reason or logic. 


As the dust settles, the truth is that consequent to the Supreme Court finally upending the illegitimate—i.e. judicially fabricated—constitutional protection previously afforded to the abortion industry, all of us committed to the upholding of the Rule of Law and the Constitution owe President Trump, at minimum, a heartfelt expression of our collective gratitude. For it is also true that any quantum of appreciation we might extend to this president is only likely to be exceeded in the years to come from those millions of living human beings who will be allowed to live and who, but for the president, might otherwise never been allowed to draw a breath or see the light of day. 

And for that, President Trump, on our own behalf and on behalf of those yet to be born, we all—as a nation—THANK YOU and the God who called upon you to have been our president at such a crucial time in our nation's history.

All of which should now hopefully include even the previously deluded among us who for the last six years—like a squeaky wheel—have been urging the rest of us to dump the Trump and join them in their search for a better president who—like them—will be perfect.
