In the face of great challenges this year, Americans showed incredible grit, strength tenacity, and resolve, and together we achieved truly historic victories like nobody ever thought possible to defeat the china virus. we launched the largest mobilization since World War II. We transformed our factories to build tens of thousands of ventilators and millions and millions of masks virtually overnight; nobody thought it could be done. We ignored the experts who demanded open borders and we shut down travel from China and Europe to protect our citizens and we built the wall. We pioneered groundbreaking new therapies and treatments, and we saved millions of American lives over and over again. We were told it would be impossible to deliver a vaccine by the end of the year all of the experts said absolutely unthinkable; Trump is exaggerating, it can't happen. And we did it long before the end of the year.”
President Donald Trump, New Year’s Eve 2020 address
Assessing America’s triumphs and shortfalls in 2020
As the year of 2020 comes to a close, it is appropriate to reflect upon all of the major political triumphs that the United States has made under the 4th year of the Trump administration. In doing so, I continue my end of the yearly series covering the many incredible accomplishments that have been gained under the historic Trump presidency. Tragically, 2020 will be known as the ‘Year of the Covid-19 Virus’, having been purposely launched by the Globalists and Deep State through their proxy China to kill the American economy, which was at record level highs, by killing the world economy. Health “gurus” like Dr. Anthony Fauci and various CDC representatives spewed lies and hysteria regarding the severity of the virus, public schools vital to K-12 education shut down, draconian lockdowns imposed by liberal mayors and Governors that persist to this day, and resulting jobless claims because of the lockdowns and economic instability.
The stock market has been on a roller-coaster of historic highs from optimism in overcoming the virus and historic lows from financial loss over national scare of the virus. And all of the while the nation was brought to its knees over scare of the Communist Chinese produced virus and unprecedented nation-wide riots spread across major cities in America in anger over the death of George Floyd by a White police officer in Minneapolis Minnesota. These ubiquitous riots were spurred by an anti-police crusade and Socialist anarchy campaign headed by George Soros funded groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
Despite all of the torrent of terror in 2020, there were many notable triumphs under the fourth year of the Trump Presidency. This article provides a strong list that contains many of President Trump’s first-term achievements. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, there have been many historic and notable gains made by the hard-work and tireless efforts of the Trump Administration in 2020.
Timeline of the Trump’s Fourth Year
Avenging American soldiers—On January 3, President Trump in conjunction with his Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Vice President Mike Pence, and chairman of the joint chief of staff Mike Miley ordered the drone strike of General Qasem Soleimani. Soleimani was regarded as the second most powerful individual in the Iranian government, a major facilitator of ISIS, and an extremely dangerous threat to American militaristic interests in the Middle East, having killed over 600 American troops and officials through deadly IEDs (improvised explosive device).
Safeguarding prayer in public schools—On January 16th, both the Department of Justice and the Department of Education delivered guidance on constitutionally protected prayer and religious expression allowed in American public elementary and middle schools.

Secretary Pompeo shortly afterwards unveiled the International Religious Freedom Alliance to also protect religious minorities from persecution.
State of the Union—During the early spread of coronavirus, President Trump boldly delivered his third State of the Union address before the United States. In it, President Trump provided triumphal reminder of the many profound successes for America during his first three years in office.

Examining these victories for the nation is imperative for every patriot proud of America First values, especially when the propaganda mainstream press spends zero time providing any credit to the successes of the Trump presidency.

This article provides many powerful reasons for why Americans should be grateful for the blessings of 2020, despite the many attacks upon the world and the nation, and issues a renewed hope that President Trump’s amazing fourth year in office will not be his last.
