Recently, the Palm Beach County ‘Trump Team’ hosted sign wavings across the county, honoring both the one-year anniversary of the president’s election and veterans across the nation.

From Palm Beach Gardens to central Boca Raton, Trump supporters came out in bunches to commemorate their president, tax reform, veterans and ‘Making America Great Again.’  Making homemade signs and proudly waving flags, these individuals shared a passion for the Republican leader on the special occasion. For Sue Snowden, Palm Beach County’s Trump campaign chairwoman, the event was simply a celebration.

“In Donald, I see a leader, a man who is working to fulfill all the promises he made along the campaign trail,” said Snowden.  “In about a year, he’s had so many successes – with the Supreme Court, the tax plan and building international respect.”

These same thoughts reverberated throughout the celebrations among his supporters across the county. For many, the economical growth in the era of Trump stands as the most commendable achievement thus far. As the Republican state committeeman for Palm Beach County Joe Budd insists, the nation’s leader has re-shaped American economics.

“Since the moment he was elected, the economy has continued to go up – look at the job market and the increase in stocks,” said Budd. “The recent elections show individuals care most about the economy and healthcare, both of which Trump is actively working to make a positive impact.”

All the while, the president’s advocates were also recognizing the imminent changes on the horizon. With much discussion in the nation’s capital on healthcare and tax reform, they expect to have even more successes to acknowledge in the near future.

“Donald did not have to do this; he had everything he could have wanted,” said Snowden. “Now, he has America in a place where he continues to check things off his checklist. He will continue to have an impact because he has been saying the same thing for the last twenty-five years.”
