Judge Jeanine Pirro said Saturday during her “opening statement” on Fox New’s “Justice” that Americans are “watching history.”
Pirro was specifically referring to President-elect Donald Trump and his recent deal with Carrier, which is aimed to prevent more than one thousand U.S. jobs from moving to Mexico:
“On Thursday, President-elect Trump, in a Carrier plant in Indianapolis, announced a deal to keep more than a thousand jobs in the United States that were scheduled to be outsourced to Mexico.”
And suffice it to say, Pirro was thoroughly inspired by Trump’s early action:

“Amazing, a president who actually fulfills a promise before he even moves into the Oval Office. Remind you of another great leader? Ronald Reagan and those 52 American hostages held in Iran for 444 days that Jimmy Carter couldn’t get released for the life of himself before he left the White House?”
But Pirro didn’t leave her Reagan comparison at just that; she furthered her perceived connection between the former president and the president-elect:
“No fancy slogans here, folks. No one liners, but you’re watching history. You’re watching another Ronald Reagan. You’re watching in real time a President-elect who is not all talk, a leader who is going to show us real hope and change.”
And some people agree with her:
President Elect Donald J Trump is a man of his word. We will bring the real change America needs.

Additionally, others are really getting behind her Reagan connection:
True dat! It's been a dream of mine since the late 1980's. No excuses now…..let's turn this ship around!!!

While this man is hopeful for more of Trump’s accomplishments to come:
trump will bring back what this country needs

However, others strongly oppose her view on Trump’s deal:
1000 jobs stay in US, 1300 move to Mexico, @Carrier (where trump owns stock) gets 7M tax breaks – THIS IS CORRUPTION AT BEST

And believe that the projected job security is being highly overestimated:
While some people view his deal as an unnecessary interference:
Only time will tell exactly how the recent deal affects Carrier’s employees, but Judge Jeanine clearly isn’t the only American impressed by Trump’s record forming even before he takes office.
