President Trump & Melania Visit Pearl Harbor, USS Arizona Memorial 11/3/17



Yesterday, I had the privilege of being at the arrival of President Trump and First Lady Melania on their first visit to Hawaii, representing the thousands of Republicans like you from across Oahu.  Mahalo to State GOP Chair Ostrov for putting together, literally at the last moment, the list of invitees.

It was great to have the opportunity to see our President in person and greet him with a warm welcome and Aloha!  His warmth and sincerity was on full display as he interacted with the crowd of supporters.  Especially, his interaction with our men and women in uniform, showing his sincere appreciation for their service.

Mahalo to Marissa Kerns and the Honolulu Tea Party, Mark Torreano and all the other patriots who were out showing their support for President Trump...carpe diem!!

Since being elected, our President has endured an endless onslaught of attacks from the left and career politicians.  This hatred for our President has even made it here to the land of paradise and aloha!  Unfortunately even some of our elected officials, like Trump-hating Representative Kaniela Ing, are stoking the flames of division.

While many critics follow and read our president’s tweets like angry zombies, let us Republicans focus on the positive things that have happened and build on those.   

Arguably, President Trump’s biggest three achievements have been filling a crucial Supreme Court vacancy, withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Paris Climate Accord, and dismantling various Obama-era unconstitutional regulations.  Additionally, since his inauguration, our stock market has reached the highest point it's been at in years, our unemployment numbers are the lowest in 17 years, and our economy has greatly improved.

Our president also takes world leadership and defense of our nation extremely seriously.  Dealing resolutely with the threats from North Korea, Iran, ISIS and China are always at the top of President Trump’s priorities.  He knows that Hawaii and our nation should not have to put up with ever-present threats to our safety and security.  Thankfully, the failed Obama era of “leading from behind” is over.

Once again, it was an honor to be part of the welcoming committee which greeted President Donald J. Trump on your behalf.  I shared as many memories from this day on our official Facebook page.  Please be sure to follow our page and share posts that you like with your friends and family.

Our party’s solution-oriented message of reform is a message worth sharing.  That’s why your Honolulu County Republican Party’s Strike Force is continuing our door-to-door canvassing across Oahu.  If you’d like to help, please donate to help defray our printing costs and/or volunteer to assist us in the effort to make it easier for Republican candidates to win elections in 2018 and beyond.

Mahalo again for allowing me to serve as your county chairman.  With your kokua, we’ll be able to start building a Republican majority in Hawaii which resembles the Republican majority across the nation and in our nation’s capitol.
