President Trump "Never Give Up!"
Very encouraging word from a godly leader. 6 minutes.
From me...to you...
In my Bible Study this morning, I received a revelation that I wanted to share with you, dear friend. In my journal I wrote this verse, and then circled in red three words that popped out to me. They are highlighted below.
1 Thessalonians 2:13
“For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.”
SO…The Word of God: performs work in Believers.
1. Perform: to finish, accomplish, full grown
2. Work: effectively worketh, to work, to be active, operative, to work out, achieve, effect by toil, employment.
(I wrote: Faith hires the Word of God—the promise I need—to work on my behalf as God’s Child.)
3. Believe: to be persuaded of; to place confidence in; to trust; reliance upon
Belief, assurance, faith, fidelity, agree, assure, obey persuade, trust, yield
The Word of God performs work in Believers lives!
Song for you.

Prayer for President Trump
Father, I pray the precious Blood of Jesus over my President, his family, his staff and advisors. May Your angels watch over them and keep them in all their ways today and the days to come. (Psalm 91:11)
May the Angel of the LORD encamp around the President and deliver him from every evil. May You deliver him from all his fears and save him out of all his troubles. (Psalm 34:4-7)
I declare that no weapon formed against President Trump shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against him in judgment he shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me, says the LORD. (Isaiah 54:17)
God says: "Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm." (Psalm 105:15)
I pray that You would hide President Trump from the “secret plots from the rebellion of the workers of iniquity, who sharpen their tongue like a sword.” (Psalm 64:2) Let their net that they have hidden catch themselves, into that very destruction let them fall.” (Psalm 35:8)
Keep the President from the snares the enemy has laid for him. Protect him from those who seek to destroy him. Give him Your safe way of escape. (Psalm 141:9-10)
Bless this President, LORD, and surround him with your shield of favor and mercy. (Psalm 5:12 & 32:10) Keep him healthy and give him strength all his days.
The President and his staff “commit their works unto the LORD, and their thoughts shall be established.” (Proverbs 16:3) Father, give President Trump Your wisdom. Help him to make right decisions in all that he needs to do today.
In Jesus name and for your glory Lord.
Did you know?
When President Trump was asked what he wanted people to remember about him, he said, “I want to be known as the President who prayed the most.”

FROM THE WHITE HOUSE
As you read these News Updates, pray and ask the LORD to intervene about certain issues...
NEW poll today: The more Americans see, the more they oppose impeachment
If you’re finding it difficult to keep up with all the noise surrounding House Democrats’ ever-changing impeachment saga, you’re not alone. Democrats themselves are having a tough time keeping their stories straight lately.
First, the left had an alleged “quid pro quo” in mind. When that argument didn’t poll well, Democrat leaders changed the accusation to “extortion.” Next came “bribery,”—then back to the original “quid pro quo” catchphrase this morning.
Yes, it’s dizzying. Democrats in Congress right now are throwing every accusation they can think of at the wall, crossing their fingers that something finally sticks. That isn’t a new trick: It’s actually been their only real action item since Election Day 2016.
🎬 President Trump: “I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo.”
Today turned out to be a bad day for Democrats and their media echo chamber to resurrect the old “quid pro quo” narrative. In lengthy testimony before Congress today, Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland put that false accusation to rest.
When Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) tried to put words in Ambassador Sondland’s mouth, the Ambassador was crystal clear: “President Trump, when I asked him the open-ended question—as I testified previously, ‘What do you want from Ukraine?’—his answer was, ‘I want nothing.’”
No matter how the left tries to spin it, that is the only relevant takeaway from today’s sham hearing. Why? First, because it’s based in fact, not third-party conjecture. Second, it was stated under oath by the only person in these hearings who has ever even spoken directly to President Trump. The other witnesses could only offer opinion and speculation.
And just like that, the Swamp’s carefully choreographed narrative collapsed—again.
The big problem for House Democrats is that after weeks of testimony, they still have no actual evidence to justify effectively shutting down Congress to put Americans through this charade. New polling out today from Marquette University Law School shows that Americans in Wisconsin, for example, now oppose impeaching and removing President Trump by double-digit margins.
But Democrats from Impeachment Czar Schiff to far-left “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) already promised their base that they would impeach President Trump—so no matter what the facts or evidence say, the show must go on.
Even Speaker Nancy Pelosi is beginning to sense how bad this looks for her party. In a desperate letter to colleagues, she encouraged Democrats to stick with the plan—and put in writing that it would be a “weak response” to wait until next year’s election to let the American people decide for themselves who their President should be.
Democrats have told us repeatedly they have no interest in a fair, impartial hearing. It’s time to take them at their word. Fortunately, a majority of Americans may already have.
“At impeachment hearing, irrelevant opinions by Trump critics masquerade as facts”
Must-read: Full statement from Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham
It’s Democracy — Not Trump — That’s on Trial on Capitol Hill
“Public impeachment hearings have begun in Washington, but nothing has changed. The Ukraine ‘rebound’ scandal simply follows from the Russia collusion probe as the latest front in a smoothly operating, taxpayer-funded, propaganda war of political intimidation: an attempt not only to undermine President Trump, but also to demoralize and break the will of those who voted for him,” Augustus Howard writes in the New York Post.
“Democrats, trying to ‘move on’ from the disastrous testimony of Robert Mueller, offer us a new cadre of government-insider witnesses, most of whose evidence would be laughed out of any courtroom in America.”
House Democrats’ real goal is to tell President Trump’s supporters that “those who dared challenge the permanent, elite government class — to know they can never win.” Click here to read more.
“Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff isn’t a constitutional scholar, but he plays one on Impeachment TV. His latest gambit is an attempt to redefine ‘bribery’ in the Constitution to include President Trump’s behavior toward Ukraine.” Of course, “he’s wrong about the law and constitutional history,” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes.
The Trump Administration took two huge steps toward improving American healthcare on Friday. “Just about every person in the U.S. has had an experience of confusion, frustration, anger, and sometimes severe financial distress due to the bureaucracy and sheer obscurity of healthcare pricing . . . With these two rules, the Trump administration is trying to provide the price signals and other information necessary for patients to be informed,” Quin Hillyer reports in the Washington Examiner.
“Ivanka Trump and USAID Administrator Mark Green will announce on Monday an additional $50 million for the W-GDP Incentive Fund, which aims to help 50 million women in developing countries by 2025,” Evie Fordham reports for Fox Business.
Adam Schiff is Wasting the Nation’s Time with Impeachment Hearings
“In their first day of public impeachment hearings, Democrats made clear just how weak their case is,” the New York Post editorial board writes.
In mostly dull, uneventful testimony yesterday, Democrats’ “star” witnesses openly complained about policy decisions they disliked. “Sorry, but it’s not their place to second-guess Trump or his policies. The president sets foreign policy, not they.”
Most revealing: Rather than offer any actual evidence at all, “they merely cited third- and fourth-hand rumors. Neither man ever had direct contact with the president.” Click here to read more.
Just like with the left’s two-year Russia collusion chase, the facts do not match Democrats’ narrative. “Now, Democrats have moved from their earlier charge of ‘quid pro quo’ to wild allegations of ‘abuse of power,’ ‘extortion’ and ‘bribery.’ When the proof falls short, they continue to shift the goal posts from one unsubstantiated allegation to another,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) writes in USA Today.
“Adam Schiff’s opening statement reminded me that Ukraine is a problem for the United States today because Russia invaded it during the Obama administration.” In 2014, Russia invaded the Crimean peninsula on President Obama’s watch—after he promised Russia “flexibility” in his second term. For the next two years, the Obama administration refused to provide lethal aid to Ukraine despite Kiev pleading for help, Scott Jennings writes for CNN.
“While Washington is often dominated by partisan gridlock, Congress can put politics aside and improve the everyday lives of Americans by approving the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a trade deal that would replace the outdated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).” This deal “will become the new gold standard against which all future trade deals are measured,” former Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN) and Gary Locke write for Fox News.
“The White House is inviting lawmakers to its first summit on paid family leave and childcare affordability next month,” Francesca Chambers reports. “Never before has this issue had so much support and momentum, on both sides of the aisle,” Ms. Trump told McClatchy DC.
How Democrat Leaders Made Today’s Hearings ‘As Scripted As Possible’
“Democrats from Speaker Nancy Pelosi on down are open about their intentions here: The point now isn’t to examine the evidence so they can decide whether to impeach President Trump, but simply to sway public opinion against him,” the New York Post editorial board writes.
“Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff, the Intelligence Committee chairman, have tried to make the coming hearings as scripted as possible: They’re only calling witnesses who’ve already testified in secret, or in some cases just releasing transcripts of that testimony.”
The editors write that it’s clear House Democrats aren’t actually trying to reach across the aisle and persuade their colleagues in the Senate, as the Founders intended. “No, Democrats are using impeachment as a partisan stunt — perverting the Constitution’s process for purely political purposes. It’s a disgrace.” Click here to read more.
“Schiff and Pelosi are not interested in real demonstrations of innocence or guilt. Their only interest is staging a political coup against their adversaries. But this is even bigger than the president. This is an attempt to overthrow the federal government from the inside,” constitutional law attorney Jenna Ellis Rives writes in The Hill.
Much like the hyped-up “whistleblower,” Rep. Schiff today is calling forward individuals to testify who admit they have no firsthand knowledge of President Trump’s telephone call with the President of Ukraine. “The Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee says he doesn’t want Republicans turning the impeachment proceedings into a ‘sham.’ The hilarious irony is lost on no one,” Gregg Jarrett writes for Fox News.
“For those who find the hearings far from riveting but watch out of obligation or amusement, here’s a modest suggestion to pass the hours productively: Count the important things your representatives could and should be doing otherwise. They could seal the border and fix the immigration mess. They could get back to that huge infrastructure program that everybody in Washington said they wanted. Pelosi could pass the new NAFTA deal, with even the unions blasting Dems for doing nothing,” Michael Goodwin writes in the New York Post.
“It has become clearer than ever that our trading policies with Canada and Mexico need to be modernized — which is why Congress must take action and ratify the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) promptly,” writes Darlene Robbins, leader of a Pennsylvania manufacturing association, in the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader.
Trump Delivers a Salute to Veterans at Historic NYC Parade
“President Donald Trump paid tribute Monday to all Americans who have worn a military uniform, from the Revolution through present-day conflicts. He spoke at the start of the annual New York City Veterans Day parade,” Richard Sisk reports for Military.com.
President Trump became the first sitting U.S. President to attend the parade. “Our veterans risked everything for us. Now, it is our duty to serve and protect them,” he said. Click here to read more.
“The House impeachment effort is a brazen attempt to protect the ‘independence’ of the permanent bureaucracy. It’s bureaucracy versus democracy, and the ironically named Democratic Party has gone to the mattresses to oppose the threat that elections pose to permanent bureaucratic power,” Adam Mill writes in The Federalist.
“While Democrats pursue their partisan crusade to impeach President Trump, their own constituents continue to benefit from his policies in the form of new jobs and better wages, reduced income inequality, a more equitable criminal justice system, and — at long last — real progress toward curbing the opioid crisis . . . But don’t expect to hear about these bipartisan achievements from the anti-Trump media,” former CKE Restaurants CEO Andy Puzder writes in Fox News.
President Trump was “overwhelmingly cheered by the crowd at the Alabama Crimson Tide vs LSU game” Saturday afternoon in Tuscaloosa. During the game’s first timeout, the President and First Lady Melania Trump “were shown in the stadium’s four video screens and prolonged applause began, followed by scattered chants of ‘USA! USA! USA!’ Trump smiled and waved to the crowd,” Paul Gattis reports for AL.com.
“Border mayors from Brownsville to San Diego have signed on to resolutions in support of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement,” saying that USMCA must be ratified quickly by Congress to modernize NAFTA, Luis Montoya reports for the Rio Grande Guardian.
'Coup Has Started,' Whistleblower's Attorney Said in 2017
“Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the intelligence community whistleblower at the center of the Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a ‘coup has started’ and that ‘impeachment will follow ultimately,’” Gregg Re reports for Fox News.
Zaid also predicted via tweet that “CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president,” and told his followers amid a flurry of impeachment-related posts that “‘as one falls, two more will take their place,’ apparently referring to Trump administration employees who defy the White House.”

“A national economic optimism index of small business owners is at its highest level ever, up 162% since the final months of President Obama’s two terms,” Paul Bedard reports in the Washington Examiner. “When owners are asked a broad question about their financial outlook ‘for your business’ over the next year, 77% say they are more optimistic than pessimistic,” the survey added.
“As the hours of transcripts of witnesses in the Ukraine impeachment inquiry rack up and continue to underwhelm, Democrats and their allies in the media have seized on a new tactic. The old, archaic term ‘quid pro quo,’ is about to go the way of the Dodo. In its place the terms ‘extortion’ and ‘bribery’ will fly about like hot air balloons in California wine country,” David Marcus writes in The Federalist. One big reason for that: A new Morning Consult poll shows support for impeachment has dropped 4 points.
“Visiting Morocco for the first time, Ivanka Trump received a warm welcome Thursday from women in a region of the country where they are benefiting from changes that allow them to own land,” Darlene Superville reports for The Associated Press.
“When you invest in women, they invest back into their families and communities and countries flourish,” Ivanka Trump said.

WATCH: The Swamp is 0-3 on its Impeachment TV drama
Last week was supposed to be House Democrats’ big moment. It was supposed to be the week they finally, after striking out with the Russia collusion hoax, put their impeachment crusade on the map for the majority of Americans they need to persuade.
Of course, it didn’t work out that way.
Rather than make his case credible, Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) first three “star witnesses” left most Americans wondering why they were even invited to testify in the first place. After Democrats asked their guests questions such as how President Donald J. Trump made them feel, House Republicans got to the heart of the matter.
Here are the only answers that matter if a political party wants to impeach the duly elected President of the United States: Last week’s witnesses testified that they had no knowledge of any impeachable offenses, no firsthand account of President Trump’s phone call with Ukraine, and zero contact with the President at any point this year.
In fact, two of them have never even met President Trump!
House Democrats are hoping to rebound this week, introducing a whole new lineup of witnesses for Schiff’s Impeachment TV circus. They shouldn’t get their hopes up. Just like last week, each of these witnesses share something important in common: They have no actual evidence of any impeachable offense committed by the President.
The reason is simple: There was no such offense. Just like with Democrats’ 2-year, $32 million taxpayer-funded Russia collusion obsession, this “investigation” serves one real goal: keeping the far-left base happy while obstructing any meaningful bipartisan work on Capitol Hill so long as Donald Trump is President.
In other words, we have a new hoax on our hands, but it’s still the same old swamp.
“Here’s a witness Schiff doesn’t dare call in impeachment hearings.”
Memo to Dems: The President, not diplomats, sets ‘official foreign policy’
They can’t hide your healthcare prices any longer
While Democrats in Congress are busy doing anything they can not to help working Americans under this President, the Trump Administration unveiled a pair of new rules on Friday that will make healthcare prices simpler and clearer than ever before.
“We’re requiring price transparency in healthcare, forcing companies to compete for your business,” President Trump said from the White House. “Our goal was to give patients the knowledge they need about the real price of healthcare services.”
What does that mean for patients? “They’ll be able to check them, compare them, go to different locations—so they can shop for the highest-quality care at the lowest cost.”
The first rule compels hospitals to finally publish their prices online for all to see. For years, these prices were often all but impossible to find, leaving Americans with nasty surprise bills after a medical visit. Now, families will be able to see and compare all of these costs beforehand with the new, easy-to-read formats that will soon be available.
The next rule, newly proposed, will require health insurance providers and group health plans to give cost estimates to enrollees before care is delivered. Like it’s doing with hospitals, the Trump Administration wants to push these companies to make lists of all their pricing information available to the public.
Together, these actions represent the most aggressive steps taken by any President to put healthcare price information in the hands of patients. That’s important not just for honesty and fairness; transparent prices also lead to lower healthcare costs overall.
Powerful interest groups spent years trying to keep these rules from happening. By making the true price and quality of care a closely guarded secret, the industry giants controlled the markets—and your healthcare dollars. When President Trump came to Washington, he promised to do things differently than Beltway career insiders have done for years. “We’re taking on the bureaucrats in more ways than one,” he said Friday.
“Trump's team delivers a big win for patients by making health costs clearer.”

NEW TODAY: Huge drop in border apprehensions
Earlier this year, the Trump Administration sounded the alarm to Congress about an emerging security and humanitarian crisis on our southern border.
The President repeatedly asked Congress "to act to fix the loopholes in our broken immigration system, and close the gaps driving this crisis,” Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan said in a briefing at the White House today.
“Unfortunately, not a single piece of meaningful legislation has been brought forward,” he continued. “And as a result, this country stood by and watched as the crisis worsened, as we reached our peak in May of over 140,000 apprehensions in a single month.”
Fortunately, while Congress did nothing, President Trump took action.
It paid off: Acting Commissioner Morgan announced today a 14 percent reduction in border apprehensions in October—making for 5 consecutive months of decline. With just over 42,000 apprehensions in total last month, America has seen a 70 percent decline since May, when the crisis reached its worst point.
“Through continued engagement with the government of Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries, we have initiated a network of initiatives, policies, and of regulations to stem the flow of the migration,” Morgan said. “Together, we are approaching this as the regional crisis that it is, and we have seen incredible success.”
But that doesn’t mean the crisis is solved, Morgan warned. “While we made great progress, I want to remind the American people that there still remains a humanitarian crisis at our southern border, and, importantly, a national security crisis along our southwest border as well.”
Daily border apprehensions continue at an unsustainable rate. At its peak in May, they numbered more than 5,000 a day. But even now, American border officials are seeing rates of more than 1,000 per day, stretching the resources of our agents too thin.
For context, as former Obama Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said earlier this year, “a thousand apprehensions a day is a bad day.”
America couldn’t afford to wait for Washington’s career politicians to respond to the crisis earlier this year. Fortunately, this President believes in action, not empty promises. If and when necessary, he will continue to find real solutions to our nation’s toughest problems, including illegal immigration.
Still, our country will never find a long-term fix through the actions of the Executive Branch alone. Congress needs to step up and do its job—sooner rather than later. Read today’s full briefing by Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan.
Everything you need to know about today’s partisan impeachment stunt
Nineteen minutes after Donald J. Trump was sworn in as America’s 45th President, The Washington Post published this headline on its website: “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.” For once, anyway, the media was telling it like it is.
Democrats in Congress have been selling their far-left base on impeachment since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential race. After nearly 3 years of coming up empty—including $32 million of taxpayer money spent on the Russia collusion hoax—Democrat leaders knew they needed to do something to appease their party’s left fringe.
That’s why Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment “inquiry” in a hastily organized press conference—before the full House voted, and before any of the relevant evidence could even come to light. This time, Democrats knew they couldn’t risk letting the facts derail their momentum, as had happened with the Mueller Report flop.
Watch: The Swamp wanted a media circus, and they got it!
House Democrats are effectively shutting down Congress—yet again—over their impeachment sham. Nothing substantive can get done while the left remains fixated on undoing the 2016 election. They have repeatedly ignored opportunities to work with President Trump and take action on issues that will help the very people they represent.
The President continues to push forward on trade deals, healthcare, our booming economy, immigration, and other areas where Americans want real solutions. Democrat leaders, unable to control their far-left fringe, can only stage TV hearings. Meanwhile:
If House Democrats were as committed to helping Americans succeed under President Trump as they are to tearing him down, imagine where we could be now.
Instead, bring in the cameras. The one bright spot from today’s embarrassing spectacle is that American families finally got front-row seats to how Congress wastes its time—and spends millions of their taxpayer dollars—on partisan stunts. No wonder Americans don’t trust Washington. Who can blame them?

In photos: First Lady Melania Trump visits children at Boston Medical Center
First Lady Melania Trump traveled to Boston yesterday morning, where she highlighted a treatment program for babies born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS). The trip comes as part of her signature Be Best initiative for child well-being.
Photos: See the First Lady promote Be Best in Boston
“As you may know, this is an issue I am very focused on,” Mrs. Trump said from the medical center. “I hope today’s visit helps shine a light on programs like yours.”
During the visit, the hospital’s staff and leadership gave her a firsthand look at their innovative lineup of programs. First up was one called Project RESPECT, which provides medically assisted treatment to almost 200 women annually. Its mission is to create a more stable environment for mothers and their babies.
Another important program at the center is called CALM, which stands for “Cuddling Assists in Lowering Maternal and Infant Stress.” The initiative brings in volunteers from across the community to hold babies with NAS, offering them comfort while also decreasing withdrawal symptoms when a child’s parents aren’t available.
The final initiative the First Lady observed is called the Supporting Our Families Through Addiction and Recovery (SOFAR) Clinic. The SOFAR Clinic, launched in 2017, focuses on the wellness of families as a whole during the lengthy addiction recovery process.
Mrs. Trump had the chance to meet firsthand with children and families currently enrolled in the SOFAR program. “Be Best is dedicated to shining a light on programs similar to the ones I learned about today,” she said. “The programs implemented supply the necessary services and education to patients and families struggling with addiction.”

Tonight, 9/11 hero posthumously honored by President
On September 11, 2001, Colonel Richard Rescorla saved nearly 2,700 lives at the World Trade Center in New York at the cost of his own.
During the attack on the Twin Towers, Rescorla—a commissioned officer in the Vietnam War—ignored a P.A. system announcement that urged people inside the building to shelter in place. Instead, he assisted in evacuating employees, directing them to stairwells and keeping everyone calm amid the growing chaos.
Then, rather than saving himself, Rick stayed behind to keep helping others. He said he would leave “as soon as I make sure everyone else is out.” He died when the South Tower collapsed at 9:59 a.m. ET.
Tonight, President Trump is proud to honor this American hero posthumously with the Presidential Citizens Medal.

JUST CONFIRMED: 158 judges and counting ⚖✓
As of this afternoon, President Donald J. Trump has appointed—and gotten confirmed—158 life-tenured federal judges who will defend our Constitution, personal freedoms, and the rule of law. A few of the highlights:
President Trump: More than 150 federal judges—and counting!
Once elected, this President wasted no time fulfilling his pledge to nominate judges who put impartiality and independence above activism from the bench. On day one, the Trump Administration went to work with the Senate to fill crucial vacancies. Fast forward to now, and the result is nothing less than a historic transformation of the judiciary.
The American Founding was built on the idea of separation of powers, President Trump said today. “This system was designed to protect citizens against the unjust concentration of governmental power . . . [but] when judges assume the role of a legislature, the rights of all citizens are threatened.”
What that means today: “The impartial and objective judge, who is a faithful servant of the law, is essential to the survival of American liberty.”
In just three years, President Trump has nominated and had confirmed two Supreme Court justices, 44 Circuit Court judges, and 112 District Court judges. Today, that historic pace is only accelerating: The President is set to have more judges confirmed this year alone than in all of 2017 and 2018 combined.
The average age of these new circuit judges is less than 50 years old—a full 10 years younger than the average age of former President Obama’s circuit nominees. That fact is important. President Trump understands that appointing good, fair judges is one of the most important legacies a President can leave. And thanks to the extraordinary number of young, talented judges he’s selected, that legacy is likely to last for decades to come.
Even more important than how long judges serve, of course, is what they do once they get on the bench. President Trump has always nominated judges who have a proven track record of standing up for the rule of law as written, not as imagined.
This quote from President Trump’s speech today may be the most important:
When judges write policy instead of applying the law, they impose sweeping changes on millions of Americans without the benefit of legislative debate, public rule making, or the consent of the governed. As a result, these highly political rulings inflict painful damage on our security, society, and economy—imposing unworkable edicts on businesses, workers, families, and law enforcement.
His promise: “I will do everything in my power to halt judicial activism, and to ensure the law is upheld equally, fairly, and without political prejudice for all of our citizens.”
Ted Cruz: “Trump has achieved historic impact with THIS action.”
Watch and share: The left imposes with judges what it can’t at the ballot box.
