What makes people love President Trump is sometimes the exact same thing that makes people hate him… his straightforward attitude. He is crass and tells it like it is. Even if you do not agree with him. One thing you can never take away from him is he always shares his opinions on issues.
At a recent event, he showed himself as exactly this kind of person and his constituents at the rally loved it!
The Daily Wire reported,
“On Thursday, President Donald Trump participated in a roundtable discussion on tax reform in West Virginia where he decided to throw out his prepared remarks — literally.
Trump, flanked by Republicans Rep. Evan Jenkins and Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, started off by saying, “This would have been my remarks. It would have taken about two minutes … but to hell with it.” At that moment Trump threw his prepared remarks into the crowd which cheered in amusement.
Trump continued by saying that while he was reading over the first paragraph that the remarks were boring and he wanted to “tell it like it is.””

At the event the President discussed a plethora of different topics such as immigration, voter fraud, as well as tax reform. The President argued that there is widespread voter fraud in the United States and that many people voted multiple times in California saying,
“In many places, like California, the same person votes many times. You probably heard about that. They always like to say ‘oh that’s a conspiracy theory.’ Not a conspiracy theory, folks. Millions and millions of people. And it’s very hard because the state guards their records. They don’t want to see it.”
His argument was that Democrat politicians in power do nothing to remedy this issue because these individuals vote Democrat and the politicians want to stay in power.
When discussing immigration the president referred to the southern border between Mexico and the United States. He alleged that female migrants who have attempted to cross the border are being r***d at levels that nobody has ever seen before. However, he provided no evidence of this allegation arguing,
“Remember my opening remarks in Trump Tower when I opened, everybody said, ‘Oh he was so tough.’ I used the word ‘r**e,’ And yesterday it came out where, this journey coming up, women are r***d at levels that nobody’s ever seen before. They don’t want to mention that. So we have to change our laws.”
Then turning his attention to the blue dog Republican Senator, Senator Joe Manchin, he said,
“So you’re going to have a chance to get a senator that’s going to vote our program. That’s going to help you in so many different ways. And you’re not getting that now.”
“California’s top elections official, Secretary of State Alex Padilla, said: “It is sad the president continues to recycle the same old lies. Frankly, it is tiring to have a conspiracy theorist in the White House.”
Trump has been emboldened in recent weeks amid the departure of multiple top aides and a renewed push to appeal to his voting base. Recently, the president has announced tariffs on China and directed National Guard troops to go to the U.S. border with Mexico, two actions to follow through on campaign pledges.
Trump has also repeatedly attacked Amazon, one of his favorite punching bags, for what he calls preferential treatment relative to other retailers.
The president was followed Thursday by West Virginia lawmakers and business leaders who talked about how families benefited from the GOP tax plan passed in December. Republican leaders have attempted to sell the tax legislation, the party’s signature achievement of 2017, ahead of November’s crucial midterm elections. Trump and some key Republican lawmakers have been pushing for a “phase two” of tax reform, which would include making individual tax cuts permanent, among other provisions.
More inflammatory issues such as immigration have apparently resonated more with GOP voters. Trump touched on the tax legislation briefly at the start of his remarks before moving to other topics. He criticized West Virginia’s vulnerable Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin for opposing the tax plan. The president was flanked by Rep. Evan Jenkins, R-W.Va., and West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, also a Republican, who are both trying to unseat Manchin in November.”
When it comes to President Trump nobody is off limits and he will hold them all accountable. Whether they are blue dog Democrats or conservative Republicans. The people love him for the way he speaks and it is a message that has resonated with middle-class America out West and in the Midwest. Until Democrats are able to understand the struggles of these Americans they will continue to lose their votes. While Republicans continue to hold onto the majority and win elections.
