Life Expectancy: UP; Is There Nothing Trump Cannot Fix?

We’ve all been witness to what could aptly be described as the “magic of Donald J. Trump. We’ve watched as naysayers from the beginning started their evaluation of Trump and/or his policies with, “He can’t/won’t….”This started the very second he and the lovely Miss Melania rode down the Trump Tower escalator and into history. Here are some of the things the left…and more than a few on the right have said…and the actual results.

Left: This is a joke or a business promotion. He’ll never win the nomination.
Trump: Beat a field of 16 other Republicans like the proverbial rented mule.

Left: Hillary Clinton will win the Presidency. It’s ordained; It’s. Her turn.
Trump: Beat her like the aforementioned rented mule.

Left & RINOs: Trump will never get a tax cut.
Trump: Huge tax cut, with its attendant stimulus to the economy.

Left: 1% growth and high unemployment are the new normal.
Trump: 3% or better with the lowest unemployment among Blacks and Hispanics ever recorded.

Left: Trump is a racist!
Trump: See above

Left: NAFTA is here to stay
Trump: Signs USMCA

Left: There will never be peace in the Middle East between Israel & the Palestinians.
Trump: Unveils a broad, two state solution, that for the first time in a long time, has tentative, yet broad Arab support.

Is there anything that this guy cannot do? Well, based on some late breaking research, apparently not. The U.S. life expectancy had been on a steady rise. In 2014, that stopped and there was a slight decline. This continued through 2017. Now comes an article by the Associated Press citing the Center for Disease control, claiming that life Expectancy is now on the rise, albeit a small one. From the article.

NEW YORK — Life expectancy in the United States is up for the first time in four years. The increase is small — just a month — but marks at least a temporary halt to a downward trend. The rise is due to lower death rates for cancer and drug overdoses.

Am I actually claiming that President Trump is responsible for this small bit of good news? Of course not, although it is not beyond the realm of possibility to credit a burgeoning economy with some of the suicide reduction. It is however, kinda fun to poke a little tongue in cheek at the leftists, who would have absolutely no problem with blaming him for a decrease in life expectancy. So…a happy thought for the day…our guy can do anything!
