While the Biden administration is rapidly trying to erase (cancel) what Donald Trump did as president, I’d like to thank Mr. Trump for the following.

First are the COVID-19 vaccines that many on the left claimed would take years to develop. Under Mr. Trump’s leadership, the vaccines were developed in under a year. Many on the left, such as now-Vice President Kamala Harris, said any vaccine Mr. Trump brought about would be unsafe, and they told others not to take it. Ms. Harris was among the first to receive the vaccine, and President Biden is now trying to take credit for what Mr. Trump did.

Moving our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and getting Arab counties to recognize the state of Israel was another huge feat. Many presidents have promised to move the embassy but only Mr. Trump did it. This was while many called him anti-Semitic and still do.

Mr. Trump protected our nation from foreign threats and secured our southern border.

With the Keystone Pipeline, Mr. Trump made us energy-independent for the first time in over 50 years while reducing air pollution. In fact, we have reduced pollution more than any other country in the past decade.



I could go on, but these are the top Trump accomplishment that come to mind. Sure, Mr. Trump was abrasive, but he got things done. I would expect any normal person to be abrasive to opponents who attacked them 24 hours a day, seven days a week for years, and in the most vile of ways.

May God continue to bless Donald Trump and his family. I hope history 100 years from now vindicates him.
