When the president signed a controversial executive order that would block transgender students from using the bathroom of their choice in public schools, many conservatives took to Twitter to express outrage.
“Tough love” is bad, but so is “tough love,” wrote Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.
The Republican National Committeemen’s Association said that President Donald Trump should have used his bully pulpit to tell his fellow conservatives to “stand up for your families and protect their rights.”
“In a time when Republicans are increasingly calling for our country to become a more inclusive society, the president has gone a step too far in making the nation more intolerant,” the association said in a statement.
“Our country must remain a place of mutual respect, compassion, and tolerance.
Our nation has made progress and we must continue to do so.”
But it’s hard to find many people who believe that the president is too hard on his fellow Republicans.
“If you’re a Republican, and you want to see America’s public schools become a place where you can safely express your faith, you’re probably not a member of the GOP,” says Daniel Greenfield, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center.
“I would say the most conservative people I know are pretty hard-line on this.”
“If a conservative has a problem with Trump, he has probably been more concerned with Trump’s unpopularity than with the effect that his policy might have on his own party.”
The president’s “toughest love” policy may be hurting the economy, according to a new study by the Economic Policy Institute, a liberal think tank.
A recent analysis of public policy and economic data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that the “tear-throat” trade war between Trump and Congress has hurt the economy.
It has pushed up unemployment by almost 2 million people since July 2018, according the report.
“The president is basically saying to Republicans that it’s not about the economy,” says Michael Greenfield.
“It’s about who can control the economy.”
The study found that “tears-throated trade war” has reduced wages by 0.2 percent in the past year, according a recent analysis from the National Employment Law Project.
And that has hurt workers across the board, even those who don’t work in the private sector.
Greenfield says that “we are in the midst of a trade war.”
It’s not just Democrats who are losing jobs in the economy due to the Trump administration.
The president is hurting the manufacturing sector, according for example, by increasing tariffs on foreign products, which would lower wages for American workers.
“There are a lot of jobs that would be lost if the president were to go to war with China or Japan,” Greenfield said.
“They’re the ones that depend on imports for their survival.”
Greenfield argues that if the U,S.
was to fight against China and other Asian nations, it would be in their interests to protect the American manufacturing sector.
And the president’s policies have hurt Americans, too.
A Trump administration report released earlier this year found that 1.6 million Americans were unemployed, and 2.2 million Americans who have dropped out of the workforce due to Trump’s policies.
And it was estimated that 3 million Americans had given up looking for a job.
“Trump has destroyed the American Dream,” Greenfines said.
He’s destroying the American dream, and he’s doing it in the name of ‘tough talk’ that’s not working.
“You know, I don’t think you’re going to have much of a problem, I think he’s got to have a little bit of an epiphany,” Greenfields said.
When it comes to Trump, Greenfield believes that it is all about “the power of words.”
“I think what the president does is he makes decisions that are very emotional and he says, ‘I’m going to get this done, and I’m going do it on my own,'” Greenfield explained.
“But when you think about what a real tough-love president does, you don’t do that.”
The reality is, the White House is trying to sell the American people on Trump.
Trump’s administration has been trying to make the president seem tough on conservatives, while also making him seem popular with the American public.
But Greenfield doesn’t believe that will happen.
“When the president tries to make people like him, I’m not sure that’s going to work,” Greenfeinsaid.
“People are going to look at him as a tough guy and they’re going, ‘Well, that’s what he said.'”
Greenfield does believe that a Trump presidency will help the economy and help the middle class.
“He’s trying to win people over by making them feel like he cares about them and they care about him,” Greenfire said.
But what happens if the Trump presidency ends?
Will the American middle class continue to suffer under the president
