Wayne Allyn Root – Don’t look now, but we’re all living in Trumpland.
And it’s spreading all over the globe. The people want Trump-like leaders. In Brazil, there is a Brazilian version of Trump in charge. In Italy, there is an Italian version of Trump in charge. In Hungary, there is a Hungarian version of Trump in charge.
In Australia only days ago, the Australian version of Trump was re-elected in a stunning against-all-odds upset.
In the upcoming EU elections, a Brexit Party (remarkably founded only weeks ago), led by Nigel Farage, the UK version of Trump, is leading by double digits. Here’s the amazing thing. The brand-new Brexit Party has more support than the famous Conservative and Labour parties combined.
The establishment Tory Party headed by the sitting Prime Minister of UK Theresa May, is in last place. Why? She is the spitting image of a female Jeb Bush- a wishy-washy RINO who stands for nothing.
Why is all this happening? First, voters want authenticity. You may not like Trump, but he is one of a kind.
Second, voters want someone who stands for something. You always know where Trump stands. Wishy, washy, middle-of-the-road politicians are out of favor. You know what’s in the middle of the road in politics? Roadkill.
Third, globalism may dominate among government bureaucrats, intellectuals and the mainstream media. But the typical voter supports nationalism and secure borders. They want a leader who will put their country, their economy, their jobs first. Someone who fights for the citizens born in their country, who work and pay taxes. Not illegal aliens or skill-less migrants who steal jobs, depress wages, or demand social services, while bankrupting the taxpayers.
In other words, Trump has turned the whole world into Trumpland!
Trump solidifies his hold on America every day. Trump-hating billionaire Mark Cuban just days ago reported that no one in the Democrat field can beat Trump.
Trump-hater Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” said days ago, “Trump is going to be hard to beat, because he does look like he is about 20 years younger than a lot of Democrat candidates.”
Reality is setting in.
A new Fox News poll found just about half the country rates the economy as excellent or good and they give Trump credit. Trump and Republicans get credit for the great economy from 44% of the voters; Obama and Democrats get credit from 15%. That’s called a landslide.
Now to the piece de resistance. Trump just put the icing on the cake. Now he’s just showing off!
President Trump announced a new plan to dramatically overhaul immigration. No more “Visa Lottery.” Now we “Build America.” No longer will people around the world get into America based on “luck.” Under Trump, immigration will be based on “merit.”
Immigration based on “family ties” will be replaced by an immigration points system based on high-level skills, college degrees, English proficiency, and job offers.
In other words, immigration is fine. Trump and Republicans like myself love and value immigration. Immigration is the lifeblood of America. We welcome immigrants with open arms. But not all immigrants. Not the world’s criminals and gang bangers. Not people without skills, education or jobs waiting. Not people looking for a “free ride.”
Currently 66% of immigrants are admitted because of family ties and 12% are admitted based on skills and jobs waiting. Trump’s new plan will flip those numbers.
From now on, there’s a new sheriff in town. America wants the best and brightest from around the world. We want professionals, educated people and those with extraordinary talents. We have standards. Not just anyone can get in anymore.
If you want welfare from cradle to grave, stay home.
We want immigrants who can drive the economy, not ride the bus for free.
To put it bluntly, Obama welcomed the worst of the world to America. Trump welcomes the best of the world. This is how we keep America the greatest country in world history.
Welcome to Trumpland.
