Trump's Achievements to Be Questioned at Midterm Elections

(Evan El-Amin /

The world will see what U.S. voters think about Trump when the midterm election results come out on 6th November. The U.S. midterm elections involve 35 Senate seats (one-third of the total), all 435 House seats, and 36 Gubernatorial seats.

The Republicans have an advantage in the Senate, and both parties are at a close call in the House, but many media reporters think the Democrats are stronger.


Republicans Emphasize Economy

The Republican Party made economic improvement a vital part of their argument for these elections. This is because Trump’s major tax cuts, infrastructure investments and job creation has brought about a noticeable improvement in the U.S. economy.

The unemployment rate dropped to 3.7%, the lowest it’s been in 50 years. The unemployment rate amongst non-whites has also hit a record low. The GDP growth in the April-June Quarter increased by 4.2% compared to last year, and Trump has created 4 million new jobs since his inauguration.

At campaign rallies, Trump has been stressing that voting for the Republican Party means voting for low taxes, deregulation and American production. Trump’s idea of creating industries in abandoned plots is popular amongst farmers.

China has been targeting the farm belt – the Republican Party’s main source of support – by placing retaliatory tariffs on American soybeans, corn and other goods. In California, Trump emboldened the farmers saying that the U.S. has lost USD 300-700 billion in trade with China, but China doesn’t realize how patriotic our farmers are.

“Trump has incredible insight and courage,” said a California resident. “He’s also good at creating jobs.”

He also has the support of many of America’s Evangelicals for achievements such as moving the Embassy of the United States in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, appointing conservative Brett Kavanaugh as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and denying government funding to organization that conduct abortion-related services. Trump’s reforms align with the Evangelicals’ ideal of protecting traditional Christian values, and his support rate amongst them is a very high 72%.


Democrats Unite Under Anti-Trump Scheme

The Democratic Party has united under an anti-Trump scheme. Their primary candidate is a highly skilled woman, and they have increased the number of non-whites, moderates, and former army officers in their candidate list. Their central argument is to protect the rights and safety of minorities (such as LGBT), to end racial discrimination, and revise the gun law. They even got Taylor Swift to promote her support for the party.

The Democrats have fully used the Russia scandal to their advantage. Back during the presidential election campaign in 2016, it was rumored that Trump’s team had conspired with Russia against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. However, long and extensive investigations have yielded no proof.

The Democrats also claim that Trump’s trusted Associate Justice Kavanaugh was accused of sexual violence during his high school years, but again they have failed to bring out any evidence.

Clearly the Democratic Party is busy rummaging for scandals and other criticisms about Trump and his associates, to cover for their weak policies.

The media always criticizes Trump for everything he says and does, but as the trade war with China clearly shows, what trump is trying to achieve is to lockdown China: a one-party military regime that tramples over human rights and threatens other nations with their military power.

Countries that share the values of freedom, democracy and faith must interpret China’s threats properly, and think about what countermeasures would be effective.
