Thank you Bob Grade who answered the question “Why do you support Trump? Explain in detail and make specific nonpartisan arguments.” with this . . .
- Judges: Trump has appointed 2 Supreme Court justices and 201 judges, all confirmed by the Senate so far.
- Historic tax cuts and deregulation.
- Building a stronger U.S. military.
- Added protection for unborn babies.
- Expanding educational freedom.
- Standing with Israel. And moved the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
- Negotiating a historic agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
- Building miles of border wall.
- Comprehensive immigration reform proposals.
- Defending religious freedom and freedom of conscience.
- Withdrawing from the Paris climate accord. Which prevented doubling or tripling of U.S. energy costs with no statistically significant benefit to the environment (as under the Paris climate accord, according to the Heritage Foundation).
- Energy production and energy independence.
- Waterways of the U.S.: The Trump administration’s decision to abandon the “waterways of the U.S.” policy returned control of water on private lands to the owners of those lands, rather than the federal government seizing control over nearly all waterways in the United States.
- Halting the increase in Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards: The Trump administration decision halted the Obama-imposed harsh annual increases in projected average miles per gallon required in new cars every year. This decision will lead to more consumer choice and less expensive and safer cars, which is much better than the Democratic policy of ever-higher mileage goals, requiring ever-lighter and smaller cars, which means more dangerous cars and less consumer choice.
- Defeating ISIS.
- Persuading European nations to pay more for NATO.
- Protections against false accusation on college campuses: President Trump’s administration has restored many due process guidelines that universities must follow in processing title IX accusations of sexual assault on university campuses.
- Protecting freedom of speech on college campuses.
- Protecting boys’ and girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams.
- Negotiating new trade agreements that are more favorable to the United States: President Trump has negotiated new trade agreements with Canada, China Mexico, and all of them give more favorable treatment to the United States than the previous treaties did.
- Streamlining environmental reviews for major construction projects.
- Sending weapons to Ukraine.
- Standing up to China and Russia.
- Withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal.
- A wise COVID-19 response: President Trump imposed strict restrictions on travel from China on January 31, 2020, long before other leaders recognized the danger of this coronavirus. Then, when the COVID-19 virus began to spread rapidly within the United States, the dominant media narrative was a fear that we would run out of hospital beds to care for the sick. President Trump immediately mobilized the military to construct huge new hospital facilities in New York City and elsewhere, and soon there were enough beds. The next fear was that we would run out of ventilators. President Trump persuaded leaders of American industry to fast-track the manufacture of ventilators, and soon there were enough ventilators. Then the question was how soon to reopen buildings and meeting places, and President Trump wisely left the decision to local governors and other local officials who best know the different situations in their individual locations.
- Preparedness for COVID-20 – the FDA has fast-tracked the trial and approval process for a vaccine, and the federal government has made commitments to purchase millions of vaccines from various companies as soon as they are approved for widespread use.
- Reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs.
- Criminal justice reform.
- Reducing prescription drug prices.
- Protecting federal property from rioters.
- Welcoming Christians into positions of influence: Vice President Mike Pence, Ben Carson, Betsy DeVos, Rick Perry, Dan Coats, Mike Pompeo, Russ Vought, and Kayleigh McEnany, among others.

UPDATE #1: For my view on President Trump himself, please see my answer to the question “As a Trump supporter, have you ever gotten mad about Trump’s sometimes hurtful rhetoric?”
UPDATE #2: If you are unhappy you are not able to post a comment, please see my answer to the question As a liberal, I’ve gained respect, if not agreement, reading conservative viewpoints on Quora. Are there any conservatives who feel vice versa?
A big thanks goes out to Bob Grade for writing this and helping clear the sometimes rotten air coming from the leftist press.
