People are freaking out after President Donald Trump recently thanked former President Barack Obama for a huge “gift” that he left behind. Not everyone is happy to hear this.
Barack Obama isn’t known for doing many good things for America while he was in office. So, when Donald Trump found something his predecessor did that deserves gratitude, he gives credit where credit is due.
According to Daily Caller, the President gave a speech in Richfield, Ohio, on Thursday, March 29, 2018. During his speech to Ohio workers at a union training facility, Trump spoke about renegotiating deals, bringing back jobs, spurring growth, and keeping out immigrants who might take those jobs. The President’s words were met with cheers from the Richmond crowd, and it wasn’t hard to remember why he won the state by over 8 percentage points in the 2016 presidential election.
After speaking at length about his infrastructure plan, Trump thanked Obama for the huge gift that he left behind. “Regulations, cut taxes, Supreme Court, judges all over the place — You know, when I got in we had over 100 federal judges that weren’t appointed. I don’t know why Obama left that,” Trump said.
“It was like a big beautiful present to all of us. Why the hell did he leave that?” the President queried. “Maybe he got complacent. But now we have about 145 federal district judges, we have 17 court of appeals judges, and as I said we have the one Supreme Court judge,” Trump continued.
“But think about it, 145 district judges. That’s world-changing, country-changing, U.S.A.-changing, and we’re going all out. We have unbelievably talented smart great people being put in those slots. But we were left a present. I never said this before, it was like the gift from heaven. We were left, judges. They’re the ones that judge on your disputes. They judge on what’s fair on the environment and what’s not fair,” Trump said.
“Amazing, it was the gift. Thank you very much, President Obama. We all appreciate it. Thank you. What happened? How did he do that? How did he do that?” Trump repeated.
I could not agree more with President Donald Trump. Barack Obama did the country a tremendous favor by not filling the staggering number of judicial vacancies. Whether it was simply another failure on Obama’s part to find qualified people to fill those spots or whether it was part of his demented strategy and vision for America, it truly ended up being a gift.
The importance of good conservative judges cannot be overstated, and one of Trump’s crowning achievements was nominating Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. In addition, Republicans in Congress deserve credit for taking the necessary steps to overcome the roadblocks put in place by Democrats to stop Gorsuch from being confirmed.
Many American patriots would agree that Gorsuch’s appointment is the most important thing Trump has done so far. On the other hand, Democrats like former Vice President Joe Biden look at Gorsuch’s appointment as the most damaging thing Trump has done during his time in office.
According to Washington Examiner, Biden recently lamented over Gorsuch’s appointment to the Supreme Court during an interview with the podcast “Pod Save America.” Biden claimed that he will fight against any of Trump’s future Supreme Court nominees. Democrats hate that Trump was able to name Gorsuch to the high court last year to fill the seat left vacant by Justice Antonin Scalia after his death in 2016.
“I would work like the devil if I were in the Senate, if we had a Democratic Senate, to keep another Gorsuch from going on the court,” Biden said. “The single most damaging thing thus far, short of what may happen to our foreign policy, was Gorsuch going to the court.”
Work like the “devil?” In my opinion, the Democrats have been doing nothing but trying to serve some Luciferian cause for quite some time now. Biden’s words are a stark reminder of what could have happened if corrupt Hillary Clinton had become president instead of Trump. I don’t think many of us “deplorables” would have enjoyed what Clinton might have done with Obama’s judicial “gift.”
