Between Supreme Court victories and opportunities, even the media must acknowledge Donald Trump’s hot streak.
Only a week ago the media was impacting the culture by fomenting a moral panic over “children in cages.” But Donald Trump had already lit some fuses that were going to suck up all the headline space. He had appointed Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. That means, every time the Court gives us a conservative victory, especially a 5-4 victory, Donald Trump gets the credit.
Thus, Donald Trump has generated his own hot streak through the Supreme Court rulings and his opportunity to replace Justice Kennedy. The media simply can’t ignore it. And these triumphs are amplified by what the President has accomplished in Korea and what he’s planning with Russia.
The Associated Press reported, “Trump’s on a hot streak: Court rulings, vacancy, summit plan.”
A Supreme Court vacancy just fell in his lap, offering a chance to shape the court for decades. The current court handed him two favorable rulings in a single week. And there’s a Russia summit on the horizon, promising headlines for a week or more. President Donald Trump is enjoying quite a hot streak.
Some of the good news is not of his making. Still, a series of welcome events has given the president a reprieve from images of migrant children being separated from their families at the border, as well as negative headlines about administrative chaos implementing his hardline immigration policies.
Trump sought to keep the good vibes going Friday with an event marking the six-month anniversary of his tax cuts.
“We are bringing back our beautiful American dreams,” Trump declared, as he used a celebratory East Room event with top aides and business owners to showcase the $1.5 trillion tax package passed last December.
He declared recent growth an “economic miracle,” though there’s credit to be shared: Lower unemployment, fewer claims for jobless benefits and many other positive economic indicators reflect the slow and steady nine-year recovery that began under President Barack Obama.
Trump’s tax cuts will add a hefty dose of debt-financed stimulus to the economy. Government agencies and outside analysts estimate the tax cuts will temporarily boost growth in 2018 and 2019, then fade as the national debt mounts.
Looking ahead, Trump is expected to announce his nominee to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court and hold a highly anticipated sit-down with Russian President Vladimir Putin — both events he will treat with his customary flair for building suspense. His recent summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un won him buckets of TV coverage highlighting his stature on the world stage.
