Xiao Ruoyuan is a senior media personality and current affairs commentator with a total of one billion views on his Youtube channel. He created a video summarizing Donald Trump’s 4-year political performance during his first term as president of the United States.
Xiao admitted that he initially thought Trump would create “turmoil in the world” after he took office as the 45th President of the United States. However, over a period of time, his perception of Trump changed and he now recognizes Trump as the “greatest president of the United States.”
The greatest US president
Xiao believes that the evaluation of Trump should be viewed from three different perspectives: What has he done during his tenure as president?, What is his impact on history?, and Are his effects good or bad?
Looking from these three angles, Xiao concluded that only one post-war president, Ronald Reagan, who served as the 40th president, can be compared with Trump.
The 2-episode video created by Xiao received almost 300,000 views in more than one day.
On Trump’s political achievements, Xiao cited a commentary by CNN, a rabid critic of Trump, that admitted the following:
Trump has uplifted the economy, kept the United States away from costly new wars.
He reduced federal income on taxpayers and corporations lowering their tax burdens.
With Trump, the US Defeated the Islamic State without triggering any war, defeated the “radical left” protests that swept the country, and resisted political correctness that had reached an outrageous point in the United States.
Fulfilled campaign promises and completed impossible tasks
Xiao believed that Trump is the one president of the United States who has fulfilled his campaign promises to the utmost. Trump’s implacable critic, CNN, found that, out of the 32 campaign promises that Trump has made, only one could not be fulfilled, which was not taking holidays and playing golf for leisure.
He emphasized that Trump’s greatest achievements include tax cuts; the relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which has been recognized by the U.S. as the capital of Israel.
Among others, also the withdrawal of troops from the Middle East; the defeat of the Islamic State caliphate in Syria and Iraq; reduced federal government regulations; and increased tariffs on Chinese imports. Many people thought that Trump would not take all these bold actions, which were seen as impossible for him to achieve, but Trump has fulfilled them all.
He also said that Trump can fulfil all his plans precisely because he is different from other politicians who only adhere to the traditional way of doing things.
Iron hand on the Chinese Communists to submit
Trump imposed tariffs on Chinese imports into the United States without fear of resistance from vested interests. What was the result? Xiao said that the U.S economy has not suffered much, while the Chinese Communist government submitted to the pressure and signed the first phase of the trade agreement.
During the coronavirus epidemic, the Chinese communist regime imported record-breaking amounts of U.S. agricultural products and also allowed U.S. investment banks and card companies to enter the Chinese financial markets.
Handling of illegal immigrants
The leftists accused Trump of being a “racist.” Xiao retorted and asked the critics to produce substantive evidence of the claim. The fact is, Trump did not introduce any racial inequality measures during his 4-year tenure as president. On the contrary more Latinos and Blacks came to live in America during his term.
With Trump as the president, their unemployment rate has dropped to a record low and their income rose to the highest in history. There were accusations that Trump targeted illegal immigrants. Trump questioned Biden during the presidential debate about “who built the cages” that hold immigrant children? Biden was speechless.
Stand on human rights made Hong Kong people resonate with him
On Trump’s decision to withdraw from the World Health Organization and the United Nations Human Rights Council, he reminded the people not to forget that these international organizations have been bought out by the Chinese Communist Party.
The Chinese communist government, as signatory to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and also a signatory of the Sino-British Joint Declaration on the future of Hong Kong, has completely dishonored their agreement, unilaterally tore it up, and betraying their promises.
Hong Kong netizens left messages saying: “God bless Trump, God bless the United States” and “President Trump has successfully done what the four previous presidents could not do in less than four years.”
Why are Americans ‘slapping their own face‘
As for Trump’s relationship with the news media, it was unprecedentedly antagonistic. Those left-wing media and U.S. tech companies even blocked the social media posts by Trump’s camp and coverage of the president’s press conferences.
Xiao said that if it were anyone else taking over as president four years ago, they would have mended their relationship with the media in order to seek re-election. However, Trump is not slick, he refused to be “politically correct,” and he continued to criticize the “fake news.”
Xiao even emphasized that Trump has never wielded his power as president like the “Hong Kong government” to suppress the media and his opponents. Xiao was referring to the fact that the Hong Kong government used brute tactics such as revising the definition of media representatives and journalists; revising the search regulations and arresting reporters so as to continuously tighten, censor, and suppress media coverage and freedom of the press.
Xiao said that if Trump were a dictator and used his power to suppress others, he would not have faced any difficulty with his reelection bid. As it is happening now, the entire establishment, the entire government, global vested interests, fake media and big tech companies are all lined up against him.
Currently, Trump is said to be lagging behind in this election. Xiao wrote: “Most of the voters have their eyes closed.
Trump will let everyone see the corruption in the United States and those who support him can see it.”
Some Hong Kong people said: “To fulfill his campaign promises, Trump addressed them one by one. It is already commendable. I really do not understand why the Americans are “slapping their own face.”
“If Trump were president of Hong Kong and even if he were to fulfill half his promises, I would still be grateful.”
