After a month in office, President Donald Trump held a news conference to update Americans on the condition of their country. What he said was an extraordinary indictment on the corruption he found.
He said the government was in a big mess, bigger than he thought; that politicians had been lying year after year to get elected, foreign policy was in a shambles and that the news media were lying to the American public to advance an agenda protecting this institutionalized entrenchment of corrupt power.
Having covered politics every day for over 15 years, these observations are not new to this writer. If Trump is 10 percent right, he is right enough to support him in his efforts to right the good ship America.
Trump is telling it as he sees it. He is unabashedly organic in his presentation, rough around the edges, not a diplomat. If he is seeing things accurate, he is the right man in the right position at the right time. Any much longer and the country would be taken over by an Islamic Marxist globalist coup. Trump spoke of “the entrenched power structure.” He said, “As you know, our administration inherited many problems across government and across the economy. To be honest, I inherited a mess—it’s a mess—at home and abroad. A mess”
While everything was going along and Americans were living out their lives, evil politicians were globalizing our country and folding it into a dangerous one-world order.
Moreover, the free press was supporting this remaking of America, by, as Trump said, “distorting” the news and information. He said:
Unfortunately, much of the media in Washington, DC, along with New York, Los Angeles, in particular, speaks not for the people but for the special interests and for those profiting off a very, very obviously broken system. The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people, a tremendous disservice. We have to talk about it to find out what’s going on, because the press honestly is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control.
Trump enumerated a number of accomplishments during his first month-border security, job creation, deregulation, a five-year lobbying ban on White House officials, and a lifetime ban on them lobbying for foreign governments, the start of repealing socialist healthcare, a pro-life justice of the Supreme Court, sanctions on Iran. And the list goes on and on. The press continues its war on this man. The opposition distorts the truth and attacks at every opportunity.
Trump is showing the very practical workings of Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
He is taking a stand against the physical manifestation of this each day. May we take up the whole armor of God and stand and intercede as well.
Have a blessed and powerful day!
