WASHINGTON – Imagine yourself as president of the United States.
Every day brings new slurs, attacks, “fake news,” unsubstantiated allegations, threats of impeachment – and little support even within his own party’s establishment.
Meanwhile, every day, you go about the business of fulfilling campaign promise after campaign promise to the voters that put you in power 10 months ago – compiling, in the face of that opposition, a staggering, perhaps unprecedented, list of accomplishments for a first year in the White House.
Would a little encouragement be nice?
That’s what the Thank Trump campaign is all about. It provides an easy, free and high-profile way for supporters of the president’s agenda to express their appreciation to the White House and the Trump administration for these achievements in the face of overwhelming opposition from the media, from the Democrats and even within the Republican Party.
Supporters can choose between six digital greeting cards with a variety of messages, designs, themes and personalization along with delivery to the White House, your favorite social media sites and your friends and family members.
It’s all the idea of Joseph Farah, founder of WND.com, the world’s first independent online news service – a unique and innovative opportunity to Americans, and, in fact, the people of the world, to send thanks and encouragement for what the president has accomplished in his first year in office.
“While there are always going to be some disappointments in the imperfect art of politics, the Trump White House has fulfilled dozens of campaign promises, changed the tone of Washington, reversed the headlong plunge into socialism and raised the spirits of Americans like no one since Ronald Reagan in 1981,” said Farah. “Such an occasion should not go unnoticed or overshadowed by the angry and vitriolic response from his disgruntled opposition. It’s time for the president to hear from those who elected him – and those who have come around since Election Day.”
The goal, Farah says, is to get millions of Americans participating in the campaign in a genuine display of sincere thanks and encouragement to Trump and his team for a “breathtaking” record of accomplishment in the face of unprecedented adversity and enraged opposition from Democrat politicians, the entrenched Washington establishment, what Trump calls the “fake news” media and street thugs, some paid and some violent, who have sought to disrupt and subvert the will of the people.
To kick off the campaign, WND compiled a comprehensive “BIG LIST” of actual accomplishments – many of which have received little notice or outright condemnation from the establishment press. The “BIG LIST” will be updated daily through Jan. 20, the first anniversary of Trump Inauguration marking his first year on the job. Those who partake in the campaign will also be kept informed of the new achievements of the Trump administration.
“It’s time to credit the Trump presidency, in the face of overwhelming political, cultural and spiritual opposition, for doing much of what it set out to do,” said Farah. “The Trump White House has slammed the brakes on the political freight train leading America into despair, misery, economic decline, oligarchy, socialism, political correctness, debt and unlimited government. Few could have imagined more accomplishment – both symbolic and substantive – in the first year of a presidential administration.”
Farah is hoping the campaign will catch on fire with the help of social media activists spreading the word and the promotion of the campaign by alternative media outlets and talk radio.
“I don’t expect much help from the ‘fake news’ cartel,” said Farah. “But it wasn’t the ‘fake news’ cartel that helped elect Donald Trump president. It was the new independent press, including the pioneer in that area, WND.com. Now, Donald Trump needs encouragement to stay the course, turn up the heat, open up the throttle and continue fulfilling campaign promises one by one. That’s what this campaign is all about, in addition to demoralizing and defusing the angry, thuggish opposition led by the Democrats and establishment Washington.”
WND has run other innovative political campaigns in the past, including the famous “Pink Slip” project, which sent 9 million messages to Congress on pink paper threatening members with rejection at the polls in November 2010 if they did not act on their campaign promises. The campaign was so successful, it exhausted supplies of pink paper in North America. Republicans gained control of the House of Representatives in that election by picking up a historic 63 seats and another six in the U.S. Senate.
WND.com, originally known as WorldNetDaily, was the first independent online news agency to be established in 1997.
