Trump’s Executive Orders Popular

Speech delivered by Chairman Lamar Smith on the House floor on February 27, 2017

A recent poll shows that the American people agree with all of President Trump’s major executive orders (Morning Consult and Politico), though they are not likely to learn about it from the liberal media.

55 percent approve of revoking federal funding for sanctuary cities.  Only 33 percent disapprove. 55 percent approve of prohibiting refugees from seven countries from entering the U.S.  Only 38 percent disapprove.

By wide margins, the American people side with the president on freezing regulations and federal hiring, building pipelines, and constructing a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.

As favorable to the president as this poll is, think how much more favorable it would have been if the media had not incessantly criticized his executive orders.
