More Cuts as Trump Solidifies Status as Most Conservative President Ever

Even Donald Trump’s die-hard campaign supporters have to be a little surprised with how his presidency has turned out. Trump brought a much-needed hardliner attitude to the race in terms of fighting terrorism and stopping illegal immigration, but no one was under the impression that we were watching one of the all-time great ideological conservatives make a run for the White House.

Trump, who was a Democrat for most of his adult life, managed to find his way to the “right” point of view on most issues, but we weren’t talking about a guy who read Buckley in his spare time or kept a shrine to Reagan in his bedroom. Trump was a new kind of conservative – one more inclined to populist nationalism than old-style fiscal prudence.

And so what a refreshing surprise it has been to watch Trump solidify himself as one of the top five conservative presidents of all time (and, frankly, making a damn fine play for the top spot). Between the way this administration has slashed regulations, obliterated taxes, and nominated judges to the federal judiciary, you’d be hard-pressed to come up with a president who has done so much for the conservative agenda in such a short amount of time.

And the guy’s still at it!

On Wednesday, Trump said he would work with his Cabinet secretaries to make additional cuts to the federal budget, aiming to take a chunk out of the runaway deficit.

“We’re going to ask every Cabinet secretary to cut 5 percent for next year,” Trump said.

Clearly, a five percent budget cut across the board is only going to be a drop in the bucket when compared to the totality of the federal annual budget, but this shows that Trump is properly concerned about adding to the debt – a concern that has been utterly absent from the last two administrations.

What do you think?

  1. Great job Mr. President! If you really want to cut the
    budget, how about stopping all money given to these
    illegals that have no business being here in the first
    place!

    • Calling Trump “Most Conservative President Ever,” or even “one of the five most conservative presidents,” sounds like the punchline of an extremely bad joke! Both my father, born in 1892, and mother, born in 1909, were proud to be very conservative Republicans their entire lives. They taught me that Republicans were the party of FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY. If they were alive today, they would be absolutely horrified by Trump’s escalation of our country’s national debt, which has been caused to a large extent by giving huge tax breaks to wealthy individuals and corporations. Instead of conservatively reducing the debt, his reckless decision has unleashed a tsunami of increased debt that will continue to haunt our great-grandchildren and their future families.

      • Then how do you propose fertilizing economy. It takes money to make money. BTW, wasnt it obys mn al who increased our federal debt by 85%

      • Are you kidding me. At least he is not funding Terriost like the last Obama did. Your parent are shaking their head in discuss where this country has spiraled down a shit hole with this treasonist #44 he should be in jail as a traitor.

  2. And now we need to keep him in the White House! If ever there was a president that should be eligible for a 3rd term, Trump is the one!

    • Sounds like the best executive order he can conduct knowing he has th it s country and its citizens best interest in mind. The guy is a billionaire. He is as altruistic, hard nosed and determined as they come

  3. Mr. PRESIDENT: MORE CUTS ACROSS THE BOARD ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IN ORDER TO GET THE BUDGETS IN LINE, BUT PLEASE DONT CUT THE MILITARY PAY OR BENEFITS AND DINT TOUCH SOCIAL SECURITY, BUT DO CUT THE TAXES ON SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS AND END THE HIGH PART B PAYMENTS IN MEDICARE; TOO MANY SOCIAL SECURITY RECEIPTENTS ARE STRUGGLING LIKE NEVER BEFORE AND THIS IS NOT FAIR TO THE AMERICAN ECONOMY AS THESE PEOPLE MISS OUT WAY TOO MUCH!
    SO PLEASE HELP OUT THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST SO YOU SILENCE THE DEMOCRATS FOREVER!

    • How do you propose your entitlements get paid for.? Decreasing the federal labor force in agencies which do not have the objective to protect us or administer the law and enforce it are all unconstitutional. Start trimming the fat right there. did you ever hear JFK say “it’s not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for the country”. Social security was a political juicer because of the great depression and the constitution does not detail programs like Medicare are even legal. Provide for yourself and plan for the inevitable which is death. If your genetics say you will get cancer, then adjust your behaviors and lifestyle to attempt to mitigate the onset of the genetically inherited probability of contracting the disease rather than casting this responsibility on the Government to give you a break and be your nurse maid. The government is not there to preempt the inevitibilities in your life.

      • Look Americans PAID FOR SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE so stop hating over what they’re owed. It’s peanuts. Instead tell about the illegals that come here and start drawing disability and SS/Medicare.
        Also tell about the dirty lying Democrats Lyndon B Johnson & Not so slick Billy Boy Clinton who actually STOLE from SS saying they’d pay it back, BUT NEVER DID.

  4. GOD has blessed this man. And we people are benefiting from it. And he is just getting started.
    YOU rock Donald. MAGA MAGA MAGA

  5. 10% is a great start! Go after the fraud and corruption in all Federal programs. There is simply too much government waste! 🤔🤔

  6. how about telling the left ,if they support the illegals to send in your checks to take care of them , because they ain’t getting any free bees , if they starve it’s your faults

  7. Thank You Mr. President for everything you have done for the American people. Those that are illegally here or trying to stand in the way of his campaign promises should be offered a 1 way ticket out of here (no returns allowed) or shot for treason.

    Again, the greatest of all of them despite the press and goof balls that call themselves dems, hilliaryous or other….

  8. I don’t care whether Trump is the most conservative president ever for I believe he is the best president ever. If he keeps up this pace for eight years, he will surpass all presidents and become the uncontested best POTUS ever in history.

  9. All the journalistic words are flattering but let’s not mince the vocabulary. Trump thinks of number 1 which is us and the country he lives in and he loves with urgent patriotism. He knows that maintaining our prosperity is about to be vanquished bc of dirty politicians whom banked for themselves on your and my blood sweat and tears. He has also put himself out there and knows freedom and the success it can provide and it takes all you got to gain it. When you allow less noble entities to ride coatails on our self determination and furious will to succeed, you gather rats and mildew. After he cleans the red carpet from these rats that has been rolled out for them to tread on us, then we turn their sword on them and use them. In a geopilitically connected world that is getting smaller, the zero sum game becomes more prominent and he wants to win it. Do you?

  10. Once he starts putting the dems in jail for their role in trying to defeat him Americans will start believing in true justice,those responsible for this fake Russian dossier paid for by Soros,Killary and Odummer they all must be arrested or this crap is going to go on forever further draining this country!!

  11. Great job! But much MORE to go! Eliminate ALL Foreign Aid, ALL welfare (which is unconstitutional), bring ALL our troops home from the 154 nations where we have permanent soldiers stationed, disband 2/3 of federal agencies, and lay off hundreds-of-thousands of federal employees. This would move us in the right direction, but would still not balance the budget. Only someone like The Donald could accomplish this! I love what he is doing!
