Donald J. Trump

Just to put things in perspective, had Hillary won, here's her list of accomplishments so far

1. Patomic River turn to blood and the fish all die
2. The Patomic then teams with frogs
3. Lica came upon the people of DC
4. Wild animals and flies are mustering along the beltway this week

I see improvements that I did not expect, we have had ICE raids here in New Hampshire. Much more than just a few, turns out ICE and homeland security have gone after illegal aliens and those born here in a number of human trafficking cases. Prostitutes working off debt owed to smugglers who got them into the country. Human trafficking was something I thought was about people sold on the deep web to country's other than the United States, human trafficking has now come to small town USA. We learn more about what we wish did not happen here. My opinion is the Trump Administration is coming down hard in this area, and before President Trump things bordered on pathetic. Perhaps I have things wrong, or is there other opinions on this.

Cut corporate and individual taxes.
Which will explode the deficit by $1.5T, while doing nothing to raise wages or create jobs.
Repeal the Obamacare individual mandate.
Which will cost 13,000,000 people their insurance.
Appoint a highly-respected conservative to the Supreme Court.

Appoint a one-year record number of judges to the circuit courts.
Including Matthew Peterson who has never tried a case and could not answer basic question on the law asked by a Republican Senator.
Get rid of reams of unnecessary regulations.
[B]Wrong. He arbitrarily got rid of a lot of regulations with no regard as to whether they were necessary or not.[B]
Destroy ISIS.
He merely continued what Obama was doing and did not do it as well.
Approve pipeline projects and new oil drilling.
Another payoff to special interests which will have a deleterious effect on the economy.


So, yeah, Trump has done a lot of what he promised to do. The problem is he should not have done those thing.

In the meantime, he has lied more than any President in History; having already lied six times as much in ten months than Obama did in his full two terms.

He has colluded with Russia, Sexually harassed women, insulted our allies, played "chicken" with the equally unstable leader of North Korea.

The performance of Trump's team has been outstanding.

Trump's personality, which has no sense of common decency, is turning off too many of the electorate.

Unfortunately for Republicans, personality will trump performance in the 2018 votes.
His popularity is far too low to expect otherwise..

And everyone who wants to have healthcare will still be able to have healthcare, so no one is going to lose coverage.

I tend to agree with this.

I don't agree with everything Trump is doing, but I feel like most things are heading the right direction. The disagreements are about some of the details. While Obama was president I used to think he couldn't be that stupid so he must be actually trying to do damage for some greater insidious political purpose.


Where he has a problem is on the personality side. There are times he creates conflict when he should be working with those people because they can help him. He also can't handle any criticism at all. That stuff is going to hurt him.
