A notable date in American history is November 8, 2016, the day Donald Trump was elected President.

Published on

I reflected on the narrative I had crafted one year after Donald Trump ascended to the presidency on November 8, 2016. This contemplation likely stemmed from the two posts I had published this week concerning the New York Times analysis of pivotal states. Composed in two parts, Nate Cohen’s conclusions provoked a profound impact on the pro-abortion commentariat. Donald Trump is in an advantageous position to secure victory in the 2020 presidential election.

It is important to note that this does not imply that President Trump will necessarily fulfill the predictions made by the media. Rather, it suggests that the media’s portrayal of Trump, which is often characterized by a combination of optimism and pessimism, should be viewed with skepticism.

Today marks three calendar years since the occurrence of an event that was, at the time, regarded as nothing short of incredible. In the days and weeks that followed, it became apparent that the election was not, in fact, Hillary Clinton’s to lose.

In 2017, Gary Bauer provided a historical perspective on the events of Election Day morning the previous year. The announcement had been made by liberal political analyst Nate Silver, who had

flipped Florida and North Carolina into Clinton’s column, giving her a 71.4% chance of victory.

Gary added,

All the polls but one predicted a Clinton presidency.

The disdain for those who were foolish enough to believe that Donald Trump could become the next President of the United States was palpable. Only someone who occupied a place in that “basket of deplorables” whom Clinton gleefully bashed at a LGBT for Hillary Gala in New York City could believe that one of our betters—Hillary Clinton—could/should/would fail to be crowned Barack Obama’s successor. For an illustrative example, one might consider a panel discussion at CNN.

The National Right to Life Committee has frequently highlighted the promises made by then-candidate Trump that President Trump is now fulfilling. Among the most notable achievements are the nominations and subsequent confirmations of two justices to the Supreme Court. However, the President is also selecting lower court judges who share a similar judicial philosophy, in the mold of the late, great Justice Antonin Scalia.

Furthermore, we frequently discussed the numerous pro-life figures he has appointed to this administration, his dedication to safeguarding religious liberties, his administration’s expanded policy, Promoting Life in Global Health Assistance, which incorporates pro-life stipulations into a vast array of health-related U.S. foreign aid programs, and other pertinent matters.

As we look ahead to 2020, it is unnecessary to reiterate the points made on numerous occasions during the 2016 campaign and since. It would be difficult to overstate the extent to which a Hillary Clinton presidency would have been detrimental to the cause of life at home and abroad.

It is important to recognize that Hillary Clinton played a pivotal role in the global campaign to eliminate all restrictions on abortion. However, the Democratic candidates vying to become their party’s 2020 presidential nominee are equally dedicated to this agenda.

Even now, three years later, I occasionally find myself taking a deep breath. The outcome was extremely close.

We are grateful to you for facilitating the defeat of pro-abortion Hillary Clinton and the election of pro-life Donald Trump. We are confident that we will be able to thwart any pro-death candidate that the Democrats may choose.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.
