Trump Hits the Ground Running

It's so refreshing -- watching an elected official follow through on his campaign promises. We have seen it in Kentucky this past year with Gov. Matt Bevin. And we saw it in the Commonwealth's legislative session, where the first Republican majority in the House in 92 years passed right to work and repealed the prevailing wage.

And now we are witnessing President Donald Trump using executive orders to undo the mess that President Barack Obama created, by executive order.  Note to Democrats:  live by the sword, die by the sword.

I've been really impressed with the administration's vigor in honoring its campaign pledges. Like Bevin and the Kentucky House, Trump was elected to do specific things and he is actually doing them. And doing them swiftly.

Forgive me for belaboring the point, but it's not something that we've seen among our elected officials in a really long time. Then again, Obama did put us on notice that he wanted to "fundamentally transform"our country. And he did, just not in a good way, but perhaps not in a permanent way.

Hits the ground running. More like creates chaos and discord. Trump is an absolute disaster. Your defense of this man and his team will be your albatross-history will not be kind to those like you who clappped and cheered for him making excuses for his rash, ill-conceived, and questionable actions. These past few days have shown the hypocrisy rampant in the Republican Party. I have voted Republican in the past-never again. I'm disappointed in the lack of moral courage and integrity shown by Republican leaders and party members. There comes a time when party comes second to principle and common decency. Sadly Republicans have sold their souls for this despot. Remember "the devil takes his payment in installments" so be prepared for the blowback for a long time.
