As President Donald Trump is approaching his first 100 days in office, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway observed that there exists “a certain amount of negativity” coming from his critics.

As opposed to media reports of White House panic and infighting, Conway appeared relaxed and confident as she made her appraisal Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice” to its host, Jeanine Pirro.
The former Trump campaign manager said that notwithstanding criticism coming from media and the left, the president has accomplished more than any of his predecessors were able to in the last 50 years during their first days in office.
“Twenty-eight executive orders to date,” she told Pirro. And the results have been phenomenal.
“You’ve got exports at a two-year high, you have the stock market up 11 percent,” as well as a rise in consumer confidence, homebuilders’ confidence and manufacturers’ confidence.
“All these numbers are up,” she said. “That’s what the American people see,” although Trump’s critics choose to ignore the figures.
“It’s such a great story to tell,” Conway continued. “Just because people refuse to cover all the facts doesn’t mean that they don’t exist.”
But ordinary Americans who are affected by Trump’s leadership know differently.
“Go tell the coal miners who visited the president in the White House that what he’s done doesn’t matter,” Conway argued, and then ticked off others who have benefitted from Trump’s first days in office.
They included those who will gain from the opening of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone Pipeline, as well as veterans who can now access private physicians via the Veterans Choice Act.
Pirro observed that coal miners have told her that “they feel that someone is finally listening to them.” She added that she’d heard similar sentiments from dairy farmers, veterans and bikers.
“Middle America hears him, and they appreciate him,” she added.
Conway said middle America also appreciates what Trump’s cabinet members have done, and pointed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DHS Secretary John Kelly.
She observed that through their efforts, illegal border crossings are at their lowest level in 17 years. “This is caused causation, not coincidence,” she said.
Kelly also said that Trump’s overall approval ratings are up from last week due to his recent actions taken as commander-in-chief.
“So, what the American people see is very different from what they’re being told [by media outlets],” Conway said.
Both Pirro and Conway observed that in contrast, the Democratic Party is struggling.
Conway’s message, as well as Pirro’s Saturday night lineup, earned kudos from people on social media.
