The Trump Presidency
It is usual for political commentators both from the left and the right to criticise U.S. President Donald Trump. Sure, he is a flawed human being, but so are the rest of us. However, he is the most pro-life President the U.S. has ever had. He has:-
1) Chosen Mike Pence to be Vice-President.
2) Appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
3) Delivered a speech in October celebrating Down Syndrome Awareness Month, in which he affirmed the "inherent dignity" of people with Down syndrome, declaring: "Sadly, there remain too many people who still see Down syndrome as an excuse to ignore or discard human life. This sentiment is and will always be tragically misguided."
4) Been assiduous in weeding out any abortion funding in U.S. foreign aid, even when it is buried in what looks like benign "family planning" or "maternal health" promotion programs.
And he clearly sends Christmas greetings to his nation and others by saying "Merry Christmas", not just the milksop of "Happy Holidays".____________________________________________________________
