Donald Trump has been in office barely a month, and already Capitol Hill Democrats and liberal commentators are plotting his removal from office. A typical headline asked: “How Can We Get Rid of Trump?”
You can’t. Mr. Trump was fairly elected to a four-year term, which he will serve unless legitimate grounds emerge for impeachment. It’s time to move from 24-hour rage to serious consideration of the president’s policy proposals and, where appropriate, offering alternatives.
Critics could begin by recognizing that Mr. Trump’s agenda is not unlike the one John F. Kennedy put forth in 1960. JFK proposed tax cuts “to get America moving again” and a defense buildup to blunt Soviet and Chinese territorial ambitions.
