Trump's Presidency to Date

by pome lover

A man whose only interest is what’s best for our great land
Who’s asked advice and listened to the best;
Has met with foreign leaders and stood strong on our behalf—
No weak apologies, he’s met the test.
He’s increased our economy in several different ways
And put in place improvements for our vets
Has plans to upgrade military planes for our defense
And ways to help reduce our monstrous debts.
We’re getting self-sufficient with the pipeline under way,
And as for fair trade, he is standing strong;
He tries to tell the danger of our having “open doors”
With other countries proving that it’s wrong.
On healthcare, he is striving to improve it every day
To make it viable for everyone
But Democrats refuse to get it done.
