In a rare television appearance, radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh said there are three “magic” bullets President Donald Trump needs to focus on for him to be a success.
Appearing on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace, Limbaugh said Trump needs to be “getting to work implementing the repeal of Obamacare, getting to work and really doing tax reform, and getting to work and really shore up our borders. Because that is the primary area where people that voted for Trump felt that we were on the way to losing the country.”
“Believe me, that’s the magic here,” he added.
Limbaugh suggested today’s America has “even lost the definition of immigration.”
“‘Immigration’ today, if you listen to the left, equals anybody who wants to come into the country should be allowed. That’s not what immigration is. That’s illegal immigration, and we ought to all oppose it,” said Limbaugh.
“We are all in favor of immigration that determines who gets in, the quantity of people who get in, whether they assimilate or not. Nobody’s opposed to that. But immigration has been defined now as people flooding the country who are noncitizens. And that’s called ‘immigration,’ according to the culture of the left. And we’re just ruining our opportunity to stay together as a people with a common culture by doing this, and it’s being done on purpose.”
Wallace asked Limbaugh about his use of the term “deep state,” saying “that’s the notion that there’s an Obama shadow government embedded in the bureaucracy that is working against this new president. I think that some folks are gonna think that’s right on and some folks will think it’s awfully conspiratorial.”
“I think it works,” Limbaugh responded. “It’s the Democrat Party. It’s Hillary. It’s Obama. It’s all those people who just can’t accept that they lost.”
Limbaugh claimed the shadow government is in full force because it can’t win at the ballot box:
“You know they’re down 1,200 seats since 2010? They’ve become a marginal party, electorally. All they’ve got is their embeds in the bureaucracy and the judiciary, and they’re pulling out all the stops. There’s no question. This business that the Russians hacked the election? This is a serious, serious allegation that is impossible. The Russians could not have had any impact whatsoever on voting, either how they were cast or how they were counted.
“In fact, if you want to say they did, they did their job! Hillary won the popular vote. How could they possibly have had any … ? This whole premise – and it’s been driving news coverage here ever since Trump took office and even before. You don’t need any more evidence than that to suggest and to know that the left – which is run by Obama and Hillary and the hierarchy in the Democrat Party – is doing everything they can to undermine, to sabotage, and to prevent Trump from implementing his agenda. There’s no question about it.”
When asked by Wallace to sum up the state of the Trump presidency one month into office, Limbaugh said:
“It depends who you ask. If you ask the media, they want people to believe that it’s chaotic and falling apart and it’s already over. Trump’s defeated, he doesn’t know what he’s doing, and everybody’s running away from it, and we’ve got people in the deep state trying to sabotage Trump in order to save America. I think he’s doing exactly what he said he was gonna do. And, at the bottom line, I don’t think really he’s fazed by any of this. I know Donald Trump; he’s a winner; he’s committed; and he has intended all along to do what he thinks is necessary to save the country.
“So perceptions are what they are. Keep an open mind. We’re only one month in, and he’s got three years and 11 months to go, and his supporters have nowhere near gotten to the point where they’re worried or want to abandon him. They hope he hangs in, they hope he just continues to stick it to them, and they want to see this agenda moved.”

Limbaugh: ‘Preposterous’ to Believe Russians Had Any Influence on Trump’s Election
On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said it was “preposterous” to believe Russia had any influence on President Donald Trump’s presidential election victory.
Limbaugh said, “It is preposterous to believe that the Russians had any effect on the outcome of voting in this country. It is absurd. There is no evidence, zero, nada. The New York Times has run two stories that are basically propaganda on this. One in October, one this past week, and both stories clearly say that there is no evidence. No one that they have talked to has any evidence to suggest it.”

Wallace to Priebus on Trump’s Press Is the ‘Enemy’ Tweet: ‘You Don’t Get to Tell Us What to Do’
Feb 19, 2017 by Pam Key
On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox New Sunday,” host Chris Wallace got into a long and heated exchange with White House chief of staff Reince Priebus over President Donald Trump‘s tweet labeling the press an “enemy” of the American people.
After several minutes of back and forth arguing over the media’s coverage of the Trump administration, Wallace said, “You don’t get to tell us what to do Reince. You don’t get to tell us what to do any more than Barack Obama did. Barack Obama whined about Fox News all the time, but I got to say, he never said we were an enemy of the people.”
Later in the segment, Priebus said, “I don’t know why you are going bananas.”

Trump: Democrats Must Stop ‘Delay, Obstruction and Destruction’
President holds Florida rally with ‘hard-working American patriots’ to call for national unity
President Donald Trump called for an end to the intense partisan strife gripping Washington and begged the Senate Democrats “to stop their tactics of delay and obstruction and destruction” so both parties can learn to “find a new loyalty rooted deeply in our country.” He made his comments during a rally Saturday in Melbourne, Florida.
During his address at the Orlando Melbourne International Airport, the president struck a unifying tone. After first lady Melania Trump opened with the Lord’s Prayer and introduced her husband to the hundreds gathered there, the president beckoned all “patriotic” Americans to join him in working for the good of the country and its people.
“So we have to tell the Democrats, ’cause they’re doing the wrong thing for the American people, to stop their tactics of delay and obstruction and destruction. We’ve gotta get on with it.”
“I’m here because I want to be among my friends and among the people,” Trump said. “This was a truly great movement and I want to be here with you. And I will always be with you, I promise you that. I want to be in a room filled with hard-working American patriots who love their country, who salute their flag, and who pray for a better future.”
Although Trump promoted unity and patriotism during his speech, he noted that the “dishonest media” and Senate Democrats seem hell-bent on misconstruing and obstructing every single action he takes toward “making America great again.”
“I also want to speak to you without the filter of the fake news. The dishonest media, which has published one false story after another, with no sources … they just don’t want to report the truth. And they’ve been calling us wrong now for two years. They don’t get it,” Trump said. “They’ve become a big part of the problem. They are part of the corrupt system.”
Coming off a contentious press conference Thursday in which he lambasted the media’s biased coverage of him, Trump responded to liberal pundits’ claims that it was not particularly presidential of him to bash them so.
“Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln and many of our greatest presidents fought with the media and called them out oftentimes on their lies,” Trump said. “When the media lies to the people, I will never, ever let them get away with it. I will do whatever I can that they don’t get away with it. They have their own agenda, and their agenda is not your agenda.”
After setting the record straight, Trump launched into a defense of the actions he’s already taken to fulfill his campaign promises as he assured the people that he is heeding their concerns.
“You want us to enforce our immigration laws and to defend our borders. You want fair trade deals and a level playing field — we don’t have a level playing field — because you understand that when American workers win, America as a country wins and wins big,” Trump said. “You want lower taxes, less regulation, millions of new jobs, and more products stamped with those beautiful, beautiful words, ‘Made in the USA.’”
“Senate Democrats should work with us to lower taxes and bring back our jobs, but the Democrats want to increase your taxes very, very substantially. We’re not gonna let that happen,” Trump added. “It’s also time for the Senate Democrats to take responsibility for Obamacare and to work with us to replace it with new reforms that reverse this nationwide health care tragedy.”
Responding to the Senate Democrats’ obstinate refusals to advance his Cabinet appointees and reluctance to fairly consider his Supreme Court nominee, as well as liberal activists’ stubborn insistence on blocking Trump at every step of the way, the president pleaded with the Democrats to put Americans’ interests and well-being first.
“So we have to tell the Democrats, ’cause they’re doing the wrong thing for the American people, to stop their tactics of delay and obstruction and destruction. We’ve gotta get on with it,” Trump said, adding that “we need members of both parties to join hands and work with us.”
In particular, the president defended his travel ban executive order that temporarily barred entry into the U.S. for travelers from seven terrorism-compromised countries. The executive order, which the Left stubbornly persists in dubbing a “Muslim ban,” has been blocked temporarily. But Trump promised that a revised order would be coming “over the next couple of days.”
“So we’ll be doing something over the next couple of days. We don’t give up. We never give up,” Trump said. “Here’s the bottom line: We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening. We’ve got to keep our country safe.”
And the president said there is absolutely no reason why the Democrats should obstinately refuse to work with him on securing Americans’ safety and working toward national prosperity.
“This is our legacy. It belongs to all of you and it belongs to every man, woman and child in our nation,” Trump said. “Now is the time to call upon these deep ties in the name of bold action. Let us move past the differences of party and find a new loyalty rooted deeply in our country. We’re all brothers and all sisters. We share one home, one destiny and one glorious American flag. We’re united together by history and by providence.”
“We will make American strong again, I promise,” Trump concluded. “We will make American proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make American great again — greater than ever before.”
