Former Resident Offers Short List Of Trump Accomplishments



Text Size

To the Editor:

It seems to me that The Bee only encourages negative input about Pres Trump. It is astounding that some of these recent letters are inculcated with total untruths in relation to him. I myself wrote a letter several weeks ago and it was “opted” not to be used. Although I canceled my subscription, I am still receiving The Bee in the mail.

President Trump has a long archived record showing the positive outcome of his four years in office. None of which are ever listed along with the negative, manipulated and derisive media clip notes.

Middle-class family income increased nearly $6,000 — more than five times the gains during the entire previous administration.

Incomes rose in every single metro area in the United States for the first time in nearly three decades.

Unemployment rates for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and those without a high school diploma all reached record lows.

Unemployment for women hit its lowest rate in nearly 70 years.

Lifted nearly seven million people off of food stamps.

A typical family of four earning $75,000 received an income tax cut of more than $2,000 — slashing their tax bill in half.

Authorized $28 billion in aid for farmers who have been subjected to unfair trade practices — fully funded by the tariffs paid by China.

China lifted its ban on poultry, opened its market to beef, and agreed to purchase at least $80 billion of American agricultural products in the next two years.

For the first time in nearly 70 years, the United States has become a net energy exporter.

The United States is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world.

Signed into law key pieces of legislation, including the Women, Peace, and Security Act and the Women Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act.

Launched the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative — the first-ever whole-of-government approach to women’s economic empowerment that has reached 24 million women worldwide.

Brokered historic peace agreements between Israel and Arab-Muslim countries, including the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Bahrain, and Sudan.

Negotiated historic bipartisan agreement on new higher education rules to increase innovation and lower costs by reforming accreditation, state authorization, distance education, competency-based education, credit hour, religious liberty, and TEACH Grants.

Seized tens of thousands of kilograms of heroin and thousands of kilograms of fentanyl since 2017.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecuted more fentanyl traffickers than ever before, dismantled 3,000 drug trafficking organizations, and seized enough fentanyl to kill 105,000 Americans.

Just a short list of accomplishments, during an embattled presidency. Anyone can look this information up and be amazed at the lengthy categorized positive achievements Mr Trump did for the American people.

Dennis Laczkoskie

Sunbury Pa. (former Newtown resident from 1964 to 1986)

Editor’s Note: Mr Laczkoskie’s letter from April 3, which he references in this letter, was declined because it continued a contentious argument on a national figure. Additionally, he gave only an out-of-state address and did not offer any connection to Newtown.

The Newtown Bee continues to be a hyperlocal newspaper that focuses its coverage on Newtown. The Letter Hive shares the opinions of current and former residents, and occasionally those of others who have direct connection with our hometown. We do not vet the information offered by letter writers, nor do the letters represent the position of The Newtown Bee.

    Hello, Bee Editor:
    “declined because it continued a contentious argument on a national figure.”
    “We do not vet the information offered by letter writers”
    I’m always appreciative of the varied opinions you allow space for here on your pages, but I feel that’s a fine line you’re treading with this particular comment. You do have my attention tho. What could be so contentious?
