Historian and author Victor Davis Hanson makes ‘The Case for Trump’


WELCOME BACK, EVERY SINGLE DAY WE SEE THE ESTABLISHMENT IN THIS COUNTRY CONTINUE RELENTLESSLY, THEIR CAMPAIGN OF CONDESCENSION AND HATE AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS SUPPORTERS. NOTHING, LITERALLY NOTHING, NOT THE FACTS ABOUT ECONOMIC SUCCESS REFORM POLICY OR EVEN LEGISLATION, THEY ACTUALLY SUPPORT LIKE THE FIRST STEP ACT WILL CONVINCE THEM THAT THERE IS ANYTHING GOOD ABOUT THIS PRESIDENT. HE’S AN OUTSIDER SO THEY HATE HIM AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO EVICT HIM FROM THE OVAL OFFICE. BUT, VICTOR DAVIS, THE AUTHOR OF THE BRILLIANT BOOKS, A CASE FOR TRUMP, THANKS AN OUTSIDER IS EXACTLY WHAT AMERICA NEEDS, AND HE JOINS US NOW. SO GREAT TO SEE YOU. I LOVE YOUR BOOK. I WANT TO ASK YOU A QUESTION TO START WITH BECAUSE WHEN I HEARD THE TITLE AND I STARTED DIVING IN, I SAID WE KNOW THE CASE OF TRUMP, MANY HAVE BEEN MAKING IT FOR YEARS. TELL US WHY YOU THOUGHT YOU NEEDED TO MAKE THE CASE ALL OVER AGAIN.>>I MEAN, I THINK WE’VE LOST HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE BUT WE NEVER HAD A PRESIDENT, THIS CRAZY IDEA WITHOUT POLITICAL OR MILITARY EXPERIENCE. WE NEVER HAD A REPUBLICAN FIELD WITH 16 CANDIDATES OF THAT CALIBER AND YOU’VE NEVER HAD SUCH ASYMMETRICAL ODDS WITH HILLARY CLINTON IN THE ESTABLISHMENT, NOT JUST TO HER PARTY BUT IT ENDED UP WITH BOTH PARTIES. THE 3 – 1 FUNDING. THIS SHOULD’VE NEVER HAPPENED ACCORDING TO TRADITIONAL POLITICAL CALCULUS. AND THEN ONCE HE WAS IN THERE, THE REPUBLICAN NEVER TRUMP TOLD US HE WOULD BE LIBERAL BUT THE DEMOCRAT SAID HE WOULD FAIL. I THINK WE HAVE TO TAKE A BREATH AND SERVE AN ASTONISHING TWO OR THREE YEARS THAT WE BEEN IN AND I WANT TO EMPHASIZE THAT BY THE TITLE.>>THAT’S GREAT. EXACTLY, THAT HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE, THAT’S WHAT I CERTAINLY PICKED UP WHEN I WAS READING. IT REMINDED ME OF EXACTLY WHAT YOU JUST SAID. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE STORY THAT WAS AND HOW IT’S ALMOST BECOME TAKEN FOR GRANTED. THEY DO STILL REALLY DESPISE HIM HM HIM. WHAT DO YOU THINK LIES BEHIND THAT REAL CONTEMPT THEY SHOW HIM.>>AT THE MOST BASIC, HE’S AN OUTSIDER AND HE DOESN’T HAVE THE TRADITIONAL CREDENTIALS. THE LAST FEW PRESIDENTS HAVE COME FROM HARVARD OR YELL BUSINESS SCHOOL. IF TRUMP SUCCEEDS WITHOUT THAT RESUME AS A COMMENTARY ON THE PEOPLE WHO FAILED WITH IT. THAT’S ONE THING. THEN HE DOESN’T NEED THEM, HE DOESN’T CONSULT THEM. HE DOESN’T CALL IN THE WISEMEN OF WASHINGTON OR NEW YORK OR EX- PRESIDENTS. HE JUST BARRELED AHEAD. THE ANALYTICS ON GDP, ENERGY PRODUCTION, TRADITIONAL CONSTRUCTION JUDGES, THE RESTORATION OF DETERRENCE, IT’S ALL IN A GOOD TRAJECTORY AND I THINK THE REPUBLICANS ESPECIALLY, THE NEVER TRUMP PEOPLE THINK THIS CANNOT HAPPEN BECAUSE WE HAVEN’T BEEN ADVISING AND WERE NOT GOING TO THE OVAL OFFICE ON A REGULAR BASIS. HE’S NOT READING OUR OP-ED OR LISTENING TO OUR COMMENTARY ON TELEVISION OR WHATEVER. THAT IS A FRIGHTENING THING, HIS SUCCESS BECAUSE IT’S A REFERENDUM ON THE STATUS QUO.>>THAT IS SO SMART. I THINK YOU ABSOLUTELY NAILED IT. IT’S THE VANITY OF THESE PEOPLE. THEY CAN’T BELIEVE THERE ON THE OUTSIDE. ONE LAST QUESTION. WHAT DO YOU THINK THE PRESIDENT SHOULD DO DIFFERENTLY IN THINKING ABOUT MAKING THE CASE ALL OVER AGAIN FOR 2020, LOOKING AT HOW THEY PERFORMED. WHAT WOULD BE YOUR POINT OF CRITICISM AND WHERE THEY NEED SOME CORRECTION.>>HE DOESN’T EXIST IN A VACUUM SO, JUST AS HE POINTED OUT THE LIABILITIES OF HILLARY CLINTON, HE HAS GOT A RECORD SO HE HAS TO STRESS THE ECONOMICS, ECONOMICS, ECONOMICS AND PUT THAT IN ETHICAL TERMS THAT HIS POLICIES, WHATEVER YOU THINK OF HIS COMMENTARY HAVE CHANGED THE LIVES OF DOZENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE JOBS AND LEVERAGE OVER EMPLOYERS AND HIGHER WAGES. THAT’S A MORAL ACT. THE SECOND THING HE WILL SAY IS THIS IS NOT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAT WE’VE KNOWN FOR 70 YEARS. THIS IS REPARATIONS, OPEN BORDERS, SANCTUARY CITIES, NEW GREEN DEAL, WELL TAX, AND I’M THE ONLY PERSON STANDING BETWEEN YOU AND THE WHOLE SOCIALIST AGENDA AND THAT’S GOING TO BE A POWERFUL ARGUMENT. I THINK THIS WAS NOT TRUE EVEN OF 2016.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH.>>I JUST WANTED EVERYONE WATCHING THREE CHAPS. THEY DON’T THINK THEY NEED TO READ THE BOOK.

  4. The Fox News Machine is so stupid they claim that trump has cut off aid to 3 countries in MEXICO. The right wing propaganda and conspiracy theory media fake news Fox News Machine for gullible easily manipulated fools. Maga Maga 😂😂😂

  5. Democrats have become lunatic Marxist idiots. They cannot be allowed to get into power. They need to be exterminated.

  6. The effects of Trump's economic policies are now just starting to come into effect. Let's see how the economy does in 2019 and 2020.

  7. I am proud of what President Trump has done to refresh the halls of liberty & to remind us that America is worth fighting for.

  8. We get call white nationalist and Xenophobes. Doesn’t the Russian Gate conspiracy theorist know that their thoughts on Russia are Xenophobic.

  10. And don’t trust Lindsey Graham— he wants control, not comeuppance. He will nab 0 and Clinton- but we’ll never know. He and Bushbot Barr will use the info to muscle O, and manage Clinton – but no justice. Graham is NO hero

  11. He has confidence in his Staff and their abilities as well as his own ability to think and make sound decisions..

  12. – Trump's success is frightening to them because it's a referendum on the status quo –
    Which is why they behave like cockroaches now the lights are on.

  13. I have heard at least three times were professionals that were being interviewed on TV who are close to Trump said he is brilliant. To me he's a commoner's heart that's brilliant

  14. We the People , who are being maligned , demonized and ENDANGERED by the MSM"s relentless
    HATE-CAMPAIGN should SUE the SUBs

  15. Trump will succeed despite the fake media, the deep state, the dirty Dems and all the corrupt RINOs.
    MAGA 🇺🇸
    Trump 2020😃

  16. VDH shows that a wise defense of Trump is possible, but that the academy is full of Marxists who hate him because they hate what America and her People stand for.

  17. Recently, Trump intervened in the nuclear processes on the Sun – he was sunbathing on the beach. According to the Demonrats.

  18. Hanson's got it right. Donald really hits the so-called self-appointed intellectual Elite right in their ego and hubris.MSM was so sure of a Clinton victory that there was no way they could be wrong. I really think there are people out there in Washington, Hollywood,New York, Etc who were genuinely emotionally traumatized. Trump 20/20!!!

  19. Trump never had the need to adopt the lessons of charm school. On the contrary, he obtained the cooperation of underlings by speaking TO them, not OVER them. Hard-working people are too tired to play the game of false politeness, which is similar by definition to politics.

  20. what the hell did Obama have, he had done nothing, he came out of no where, he study law a little bit so they say, but he was nothing and let him rip this country to shreds, this man'' Trump'' ever step he takes is for his country !!!!!!! something wrong here, but that is what the left want's, is some one to shred this country part !!!!!!!!

  21. Where does it state that a Legal US Citizen has to have a degree (let alone, from Harvard (that itself makes it suspect, but I digress), or any of these same old mentioned Universities that many of these politicians, etc., seem to all have attended or affiliated with, decades after decade after decades).
    Why can't any common legal or legal born USA American Citizen (35 or plus years old) honest righteous person run for US President. Isn't that part of the American dream.
    Thanks for your insight, as always, Mr. Victor David Hanson.
    P.S. Why does it always seem that it is always Harvard studies that are pushed on MSM, just as a side note, didn't Harvard University state they were working on blocking out the sun due UV Rays or something like that. Next I'm sure they'll be asking for government funds and grants, for more insane, bs.
    (Respectively, these is not aimed at those that attend these Universities with righteous and deserving reasons)
    As for degrees, it's the person whom should be judged upon character and knowledge of particular subjects, as far as a piece of paper is what it is a piece of paper.
    God Bless 🙏 US President Trump, USA 🇺🇸, and the world🌎!

  22. Ask Victor how much farm welfare he gets. Everything his family ever did in Cali was at the core a government sub. Oh my you dirty socialist.

  23. We have reached the limits of our own corruption! Trump has the most difficult job in a CORRUPT world! Go Trump!

  24. Pundits still can't figure out Trumps next move! It drives them nuts. Trump is at another level! Trump always seems to come out on top? What are the odds? 1M to 1!

  25. Wow this gentleman encapsulated the whole situation in a nutshell! The future looks truly frightening!

  26. THIS IS THE History people will talk and write about for the next 200 years…And about his Legacy and Accomplishments

  27. Globalists/Internationalists hate Trump because he's an American Nationalist Patriot and thus threatens a bit of their outrageous wealth and power. They want to sell out to China because they are more invested there than here. They want to open the borders to cheap Illegal labor to boost their own profits. Trump wants to do the opposite. That's why the two party Establishment hate him and want to sink his Presidency. Everything boils down to money and the power to make even more of it at the expense of the American People.

  28. Hanson is riding the Trump wave for profit, and criticizes history, which is easy after most of the people of that era are dead. He is trying to rewrite WWII history as some great America triumph when we came to the war 5 years after it started and after 20 million Russians died fighting most of Germany’s army. Sure we were successful, but we didn’t do it alone.
    Trump is a giant moron taking a free ride on Obama’s hard work. He has only improved unemployment by 1% and that happen in his first year before he had any affect on the government. People voted for a TV character created by TV writers, that TV Trump does not really exist. What Trump is doing will start showing this year as the economy begins to crumble. No person could be more wrong about the world than Donald Trump.

  29. Personal freedom, personal responsibility, Rule of law. We need to get over the European crap. They are Socialists. We need to redefine the western hemisphere. We have all the food and resources. Why fight their wars. Shut it down. Make all the Americans great. Let them eat each other.

  30. We need to close border now. Thousands coming and many are here. They are reinforcement s for Democrats to win a civil war. To all Americans I beg unite. You think will no happened here. It can socialism/communism killed my family. Criminals control. Let's make America great again. Trump 2020

  31. God Stepped in to Save this Nation from Satanic Evil! Keep Praying for Trump, Patriots & their families! They Hate him Cuz they’re Criminal Traitors who don’t want to Face Justice but they will!

  32. Great point! all Trump has to do is drive home the economy & pocket book issues then remind folks bout killing new borns, open borders, & banning hamburgers & air travel !

  33. The International Sniper Society may have about enough of this divisive moron. I'm not an advocate of blowing asshole like him away – the justice system will eventually get him, but I can't say that I'd be sad if they got him. Hip Hip…Hooray!

  34. I'm a Pipe Welder and when I saw Trump come down the escalators and give his first speech, I had 100% faith in him, I knew he could do what he said he would. I also knew the the polls and experts were so wrong because when I was in the middle of building a power plant in 2015-2016 over 1000 workers that I worked along side me had a Trump 2016 sticker on his and her Hard Hat. While every College educated virtue signaling high brow schmuck bet against him and looked down on "us" (Deplorable's) we would give them one large middle finger and took the Republic back from the Fascist.

  35. Americans have witness one of the greatest political reversals in US history. -all because of one man!
    'Don't underestimate Donald Trump' was the rumor, that now everyone knows to be true.
    – thank you President Donald J. Trump!

  36. "We defeated a very corrupt establishment, and have kept our promise to the American people. And it's driving them crazy!" -President Donald J. Trump

  37. After 19 appo lawyers giving Trump a procto examine for 2 years, the orange man has to be the cleanest politician in Washington, precisely why he was elected. Unlike EVERYONE ELSE, NO DIRT TO EXTORT HIM WITH – and they SURE TRIED to control him! (the chief complaint of the Deep State)

  38. Trump is General Patton as a President. Cold, hard, rude, decisive, facts. There is no spin or BS. He calls it like it is and if your feeling are hurt then go get a hug from mommy.

  39. Trump election reaffirmed the trust in sanity of American voters to put USA on the winning track the whole world admires and respects. Globalist drive to one world government has been effectively checked to give nations of the world time to sober up from their Karl Marx fueled utopia of equal outcome for all to joint USA, offering free and equal OPPORTUNITY for all, the principal element of America success story..

  40. Dems offer to take care of you in exchange for your vote. Dependency follows. Trump says: Go for it on your own! -Independence follows. The free gift is your Dignity and Pride restored.

  41. Yes it's because trump is an outsider that people dont like him…that must be it. I guess it has nothing to do with his backwards policies, his incompetent cabinet, and his criminal activity.

  42. wide-eyed serotonin manifesting individuals, including the above Fox News guy, and Chris Wallace…beware. back-stabbing.
