New Jersey Boxing Hall of Famer and now United States President Donald J. Trump has “been around the fight game so he has a lot of knowledge,” former fighter and trainer Sean Gibbons told the press a week before the November election last year. He’s been in the gym. With a bit of slight training, I believe he has a tremendous one-two. He’s a passionate guy about boxing.”
“I like Trump,” Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach said back then. “I like Trump by knockout. I think early.”
Fast forward to May 2017 and in this corner, President Trump, at 6′ 2″, tweets “James Comey will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the FBI.”
In that corner, Comey at 6′ 8″, with Democratic leadership and the Mainstream Media (MSM) continue to face their struggles using the tired tactics that resulted in their losses during the 2016 political elections.
President Trump is racking up most of the victories in each round of attacks. While the MSM and Democrats assault the president over his firing of FBI Director Comey, “The Donald” marches on with more virtually unreported victories than any president in history. But Americans know that it’s hard to argue with legitimate facts. Here’s a look at just a portion of the epic battle between Trump vs. Comey:
Trump: The number of American unemployment benefit claims has dropped to its lowest level in almost three decades year to date. The last time these benefit claims was this low was 1988. Averaging the weeks of April and May so far, total unemployment benefit claims are running at the lowest rate since 1974, despite the workforce being 75 percent bigger.
Comey: Under his leadership, the FBI made a suspicious deal allowing the Hillary Clinton camp the ability to receive immunity and destroy their laptops during the investigation of her mishandling of classified material.
Trump: The White House announced last week that 1,378 people were arrested the previous six weeks during the largest “sweep” against gang members, human smugglers and drug dealers in history. Two-thirds were U.S. citizens, one-third were foreign nationals from 21 countries in South and Central America, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Caribbean.
Comey: The FBI had been investigating Omar Mateen, the terrorist who killed 49 people and injured over 50 more at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. For some reason, the FBI dropped the case knowing Mateen had admitted lying to FBI agents prior to the bombing.
Trump: During his first 100 days in office, the U.S. national debt decreased by $100 billion. This compares favorably compared to Obama, who increased our debt to over $560 billion within his first 100 days.
Comey: The FBI knew that Ahmad Khan Rahami, the radical Islamist who detonated the backpack bomb in New York City in 2016, was dangerous. His father told them about Rahami’s radicalization. The FBI cleared him after a token interview.
Trump: The president nominated Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. Gorsuch was confirmed and has been sworn in as the new justice.
Comey: Americans continue to scratch their heads wondering where Comey’s leadership was during the investigations of the “Fast and Furious” ATF forcing of gun shop owners to sell to drug dealers, the IRS targeting of journalists, conservative groups and Obama political enemies? There are many unanswered questions on Comey’s whereabouts when it came to the FBI investigations of Solyndra, money laundering, Harry Reid’s Nevada land deals, and the secret Bill Clinton-Loretta Lynch meeting.
Trump: Despite MSM and Democratic predictions of the opposite, under the Trump White House so far, the U.S. manufacturing index is now at a 33-year high in this period. The last time the index was this good was under President Ronald Reagan in 1983.
Comey: We didn’t hear much from MSM about Russia’s involvement with the Obama Administration regarding the Boston Marathon bombing. After Comey’s FBI interviewed bomb Tamerlan Tsarnaev prior to the bombing, they released him. Russia sent the White House a second warning, but the FBI elected not to investigate him again. Three people were killed and over 264 injured on April 15, 2013 near the marathon finish line.
Trump: Illegal immigration is down by 67 percent since Trump became president in January 2017.
Comey: 31 innocent Americans are dead from the attack by Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood, Texas. Prior to their murders, the FBI had in their possession emails from the killer stating he wanted to kill his fellow soldiers to protect the Taliban.
Trump: After years of mediocre results or losses, U.S. stock markets immediately rebounded after Trump’s election. To make matters worse for Democratic and MSM naysayers, American stocks are now at all-time highs. Millions of Americans are benefitting, including those with retirement savings accounts.
Comey: The former FBI Director will not comment on why the FBI did not intervene or stop the two terrorists who planned to kill Americans at the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas. The FBI had an undercover agent traveling with Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, the radical Islamists who attempted to break through a police protective perimeter at the convention center. The two attackers were killed by police after shooting a guard outside the venue.
Cryin’ Chuck Schumer stated recently, “I do not have confidence in him (James Comey) any longer.” Then acts so indignant. #draintheswamp The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that he should be fired, but now they play so sad! –President Trump tweets, May 2017
Comey said in a press conference after the attack that the FBI didn’t have reason to think an attack was being planned. Later it was learned the FBI had sent a bulletin to local police, with Simpson’s photo, warning them of such a possibility. The FBI actually had an undercover agent on the ground communicating with another Islamic terrorist through emails, prior and during the attack.
Trump: The President has signed over 70 executive orders including dismantling Obama’s costly climate change initiatives, protecting law enforcement, rebuilding the military, approving pipelines, placing a hiring freeze on employees, purging (“Drain the Swamp”) federal waste, and enforcing regulatory reform.
Comey: The FBI Director misled the American people when his organization said two private jets were being used for counterterrorism. Their primary use was later learned to be to transport Obama administration staffers such as Eric Holder and Robert Mueller for their personal and business travel.
Trump: Undeterred by Obama’s claim that jobs were not coming back, President Trump added 298,000 jobs during his first month in office. In the first week of May, new jobless claims dropped to an astonishing 236,000.
Comey: Recent reports confirm some of the information that was being quieted by the MSM during the election has turned out to be true. Comey has “coincidental” ties to the Clinton Foundation. While serving as general counsel at Lockheed Martin, the Clinton Global Initiative received 17 contracts with the U.S. State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
Comey left Lockheed Martin with $6 million in his pocket. He became a board member of the British HSBC Holdings, a large Clinton Foundation partner.
Comey’s brother Peter is Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas at the Washington law firm DLA Piper, a top ten all-time campaign donor to Hillary Clinton. The company does the Clinton Foundations taxes and were also called in to perform the 2015 audit of the Foundation when the scandal first broke.
