The attacks on President Trump resembles past history of another U.S. president, which would be former President Ronald Reagan and the attacks on Reagan were just as fierce as they are with Trump but for different reasons and still concerning.
When Reagan took office, the economy was in bad shape due to the former President Carter years of high inflation.
Reagan instituted across-the-board tax cuts, major deregulation, and domestic spending restraint helped fuel an economic boom that lasted two decades as Reagan inherited a misery index, which was the sum of the inflation and unemployment rates that equaled 19.99%.
When he left office it had dropped to 9.72% and created 16 million new jobs were created, something liberals the left-wing media ignore.
Another of Reagan’s accomplishments among several, the Cold War, in which I served as an Air Force veteran during the Cold War, against the former Soviet Union (USSR), calling it the Evil Empire and told Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall” in Berlin.
With the forgotten history of Reagan and the parallels with Trump, the media has laughed at any attempt to compare President Trump to former President Ronald Reagan, but there are many similarities, Tammy Bruce of Fox News stated.
The similarities’ between Reagan and Trump are sequentially a flash from the past.
The extraordinary assaults by media, celebrities and jealous politicians against Trump have been unending. Their attacks include questioning his mental health, repeatedly comparing him to Hitler, declaring him a fascist, insisting he’s a modern-day Manchurian candidate, that he’s a traitor (because Russians!), and on and on.
The striking thing about the nature of the attacks is that they’re all personal. They are accusations meant to instill in the listener a sense of danger, provoking an existential fear of the president of the United States.
Now why would someone want to do that? And what could possibly be the result of creating that toxic environment?
Reagan withstood similar vitriol by the same and usual suspects. The Sun newspaper quoted author Steven Hayward’s recollection of the rhetoric against Reagan: “Democratic Rep. William Clay of Missouri charged that Reagan was “trying to replace the Bill of Rights with fascist precepts lifted verbatim from Mein Kampf.”
Los Angeles Times cartoonist Paul Conrad drew a panel depicting Reagan plotting a fascist putsch in a darkened Munich beer hall. Harry Stein (later a conservative convert) wrote in Esquire that the voters who supported Reagan were like the “good Germans” in “Hitler’s Germany,” The Sun reported.
After being attacked relentlessly by fellow Republicans during the campaign, Hollywood making their condemnation known, and the media working overtime to demonize Reagan, it shouldn’t be surprising that, within 90 days of his taking the oath of office, the president was shot by a lunatic.
