Everyone Missed This Golden Nugget From President Trump’s Big Announcement Speech
He’s back and ready to rock and roll; at least that’s what former President Donald Trump announced earlier this week.
Like many Americans, I watched the Don’s speech. While almost every mainstream media reported on some of the major highlights of the announcement, I decided to focus on some of the tasty little bits that didn’t get enough attention.
Trump’s quick jokes add flavor to his speeches and make them worth watching. He touched on quite a few things on Tuesday, from the economy to the war in Ukraine; you name it, he hit it.
But I’m not here to talk about all that, it’s done, and it’s Friday; let’s have a little more fun sliding into the weekend.
No, I’m here to talk about Mars, Star Wars, and the mass executions of drug traffickers.

Many pundits have wondered why Trump would make his announcement this week so far out of the primary season and with the Georgia Senate race still underway. I think it’s possible he timed it with the long-awaited launch of Artemis I. Hear me out.
Trump has announced that one of the efforts he will do for the American people if he is president again is to plant the American flag on our red celestial neighbor, Mars.

President Trump proclaimed:
“We will push back the frontiers of human knowledge and expand the horizons of human achievement. And we will be planting our beautiful flag on the surface of Mars very soon. »
I give advice for channeling one of my top 10 presidents of all time, he may not be as fluid as JFK, but I like the boldness of his goals. This particular promise was not new; in 2019, he said at an event on July 4:
“…we’re going to be back on the moon very soon, and one day soon we’ll be planting the American flag on Mars.”
And it could happen given the successful launch of Artemis I on Wednesday. The original plan was for NASA to return to the Moon in 2028, but Trump’s Vice President Mike Pence told them to step it up a notch and do it by 2024.

The past few months have been busy, with experts warning that we could be closer to a nuclear apocalypse than we have ever been in history. The war in Ukraine has engaged Russia and the United States in an epic contest of nuclear vision.
But do not worry; Trump has a plan. Technically, he’s got another old president’s blueprint, just dusted off and repackaged.

According to the playbook of another of my top 10 presidents of all time, Ronald Reagan, President Trump promised to build a defensive shield to protect us from nuclear attack.
More specifically, it said the shield will:
“…to protect our people from the unthinkable threat of nuclear weapons and hypersonic missiles, the United States must also build a state-of-the-art, next-generation missile shield – we need it.”
Again, you have to give it to the man to stick with the message. It was another throwback to 2019 when he published his updated missile defense plan, which, yes, included lasers:
“Our goal is simple. To ensure that we can detect and destroy any missile launched against the United States anytime, anywhere.
We spend billions and billions of taxpayer dollars on arms for other countries; why not make it rain green for a refreshed Star Wars system?
If President Trump was a droid in Star Wars, he would be like R2D2 except BETTER and 18k gold!

What is good for them is good for us?
The fentanyl crisis has been worrying me since it was cool to worry about fentanyl. And the opioid epidemic in this country is also something that our government has yet to get a grip on.

These drugs have claimed the lives of countless Americans and destroyed families. President Trump is taking the war on drugs to a new level, however, indicating this week:
“We are going to call on anyone who sells drugs, gets caught selling drugs, to receive the death penalty for their heinous acts.”
This statement alone was enough for me to spit out my evening coffee. Still, the story behind how he came up with this idea is what really fascinates me. He regaled us with a conversation he had with Chinese President Xi.
After asking President Xi if he had a drug problem in China, the Chinese leader said no because they have “quick trials” and at the “end of the day you get executed.” Talk about a quick, fast trial!
The best part was President Trump indicating:
“It’s a terrible thing, but they don’t have a drug problem.”
It would be funny if it weren’t a bit scary for those of us who are fans of the Constitution. However, he acknowledges that we may not be ready for this kind of government repression:
“I don’t even know if the American public is ready for that.”
Yeah, we should probably put a pin in that one.
President Trump is ready to execute drug dealers, and I wonder if we can start with pedophiles?

Except for my personal political leanings as a political commentator, I’m thrilled to have Trump in the mix again. Not that I always run out of material to write about on a daily basis, but it does get repetitive at times to go after President Biden and Vice President Harris.
This goof-prone duo are always reliable for some cringe-worthy word salads. But Donald Trump’s bold and bold statements add flavor to my week.
As a 20-year Air Force combat veteran, my all-time favorite line from the former president was when he vaunted:
“I’ve gone decades, decades, without a war, the first president to do so for such a long time.”
My husband and I both served and deployed in the 20 year war in Afghanistan, we looked at each other puzzled once he said the winner of a line. Could it be that the rules of time and space don’t apply to Donald Trump?
It’s all good, though; at least he knew what country he was in; I cannot say the same for the current Commander-in-Chief.
Biden, in remarks at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit, thanked “the Prime Minister of Colombia” for his “leadership as ASEAN President.”
