How I Went From a Never Trumper to Enthusiastically Voting for Trump in 2020

~2016 was a rough year for me.  I felt that we had some great Republican candidates to pick from, but ended up with Trump.  I wasn't a fan of his tendency to be rude, and he had absolutely no track record to prove that he would govern like he was promising too.

~I hadn't been a fan of McCain or Romney, and had basically voted for both of their VP's, Palin and Ryan.  I vowed I wouldn't vote for the VP candidate 3 times in a row.  For the first time in my life, I didn't vote Republican, I voted for an Independent Candidate.

~For the 1st 2 years of Trump's presidency, I took a break from politics. 

~Fast forward to the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and I was jolted awake.  I watched in horror while the left tried to destroy a man's career and reputation AGAIN.  All because they disagreed with his views.  

~I started paying attention again and I was startled at how much Trump had accomplished and how he was actually DOING almost everything he had promised to do when he ran.

~Ben Shapiro and I came around to support Trump at almost the same time.  We weren't alone, other Republicans started coming around as well as we saw what Trump had done.

Below are some of the many reasons I will be voting for Trump on November 3, 2020.

2) Trump's Economic Success Pre-Pandemic Surpasses that of any other Presidency by Andy Puzder

Released two weeks ago, the Census Bureau’s report on “Income and Poverty in the United States” for 2019 clearly shows that, pre-pandemic, President Trump’s economic success blew past that of any other presidency.

First, the Census Bureau reported that real median household income grew to $68,703 in 2019, an impressive 6.8% increase over 2018. It was the largest one-year increase in median income on record going back to 1967. It was also 45 percent more growth in a single year ($4,379) than Obama/Biden produced in their entire 8 years in office ($3,021).

As was the case throughout Trump’s first three years, the economic benefits were widespread. While the overall growth rate was 6.8%, real median income grew by an even greater 7.9% for Black Americans, 7.1% for Hispanic Americans, and 10.6% for Asian Americans. All record highs as were the new income levels for each of these groups.

 As for talking points about how the Trump tax cuts benefitted only the rich, well, they were false. As incomes grew in 2019, the poverty rate plummeted 1.3 percentage points to a 60 year low of 10.5%. This was the largest reduction in poverty in over 50 years. It lifted over 4.1 million people out of poverty, the largest yearly decrease since 1966. Just for comparison purposes, over the Obama/Biden era, the number of people living in poverty increased by 787,000.

Nothing you say after that headline makes any sense.

Nor certainly matters.
