I’ll be host and Master of Ceremonies at the big event today at South Point Casino celebrating President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office. It’s called “MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN 100 Days Celebration.” See all of you at the South Point at 5 PM. A massive crowd is expected. 

 

The reason so many Nevadans are celebrating President Trump’s first 100 days in office is that the mainstream media has lied to you. Trump isn’t unpopular. He’s one of the most popular presidents in modern history- just not with everyone. But he’s incredibly popular with the very groups who do most of the work, spend most of the money, create most of the jobs and pay just about all the taxes. In other words, President Trump is a hero to the very groups of Americans that “make America great!”

 

Every letter I get from liberal RJ readers says the same thing. I think you’re all reading off the same Obama teleprompter, or you’ve been brainwashed by CNN. Every single liberal critic says, “Wayne, I guess you didn’t know that Trump is the most unpopular president ever, with approval ratings of 35%.”

 

Sorry my delusional liberal friends, but you’re guilty of believing fake news again. Thank goodness delusion doesn’t win elections. The same polls that oversampled Democrats to make it seem Trump would lose the election by double digits, are the same ones that now oversample Democrats to make Trump seem unpopular.

 

I was the first and one of the only national political commentators to correctly predict Trump’s victory, because I focused on the one historically fair and accurate poll out there- Rasmussen. 

Rasmussen was always accurate for the 2016 Presidential race.

 

Sure enough, the one accurate poll out there- Rasmussen- once again (as I write this column) shows Trump’s approval rating at 50%. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administration/prez_track_apr18

Don’t look now my delusional liberal friends, but that’s enough support to win the presidential election all over again.

 

But that’s not the poll that matters. Have you seen the poll of small business optimism? These are the men and women who take the risks, create about two thirds of all private sector jobs and pay most of the taxes. That poll shows small business owners love Trump. He is their hero. That poll jumped after Trump’s election the most in 40 years! It’s been historically high for five straight months- since the day of Trump’s election. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-10/u-s-small-business-optimism-index-surges-by-most-since-1980

 

Even more important than small business jobs are manufacturing jobs. That is the lifeblood of America. These are the high-paying jobs that are needed to save the middle class. The Manufacturers Outlook Survey also shows a dramatic shift. The optimism level for Obama only one year ago was 56%. Today it stands at over 93%. That’s the highest level in HISTORY. The people that own factories and create great jobs that America’s middle class desperately needs love Trump at a level never seen before in history. 

 

Consumers are the people who buy everything. The Consumer Confidence Index is also at the highest level in 15 years. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/consumer-confidence-hits-15-year-high-2017-02-24

 

Who else loves Trump? Every cop I speak to loves Trump. Every active military man and woman I speak to loves Trump. Every vet loves Trump. When I say “every” I actually mean every one. I haven’t met a cop, soldier or vet that doesn’t love Trump. And they don’t just like him, they love him.

 

So, is it significant to understand that among that 50-50 split in America over President Trump, we have cops, military, veterans, patriots, working class and middle class consumers, small business owners and manufacturers on one side- all the “MAKERS” of America. The very groups that contribute to America’s greatness. The groups that buy everything, do all the hard work, create every job and keep us safe.

 

And on the other side are the “TAKERS.” The people who despise Trump mostly take out of the system. Many of them live off government- welfare, food stamps, Obamacare, Medicaid, free Obama phones. The list goes on forever. Their lives are not built around making stuff or buying stuff, they just want free stuff.

 

This is the split in America today.

 

All I can say is 3 things…God bless President Trump. Thank you for making America great again. And congratulations on a fantastic first 100 days in office.
