I neither support or denounce Trump.
The dude has serious issues, private and public, and really needs the wisdom of shutting his mouth and his twitter account.
As far as if he's a good person, to quote Jesus:
none is good but God.
Having said that, it doesn't sound like Trump is even trying.
But there one thing I know:
The media rarely ever tells the actual important things about a presidency.
They tell how popular a person is, what dress/suit they wore, where they went on vacation,
and "isn't he the GREATEST/WORST Ever!???"
The fact they are spending some much time telling us what a horrible person he is is
and so little time telling us what bills and policies he's initiated and their effects
(except for that business on those refugees/detainees/revoked passports)
makes me suspicious.
Clearly the mainstream media hates him,
but the fact they still can't concisely say whether he's doing the job he was hired/ elected to do
(except to start a first grade name calling war)
means they are deliberately obscuring the facts.
And that usually means the media is up to something, worse.
Supporting the person and supporting the job are two different things. But the mere fact that he slowed the PC roll makes me happy. Had he not done so, I would be identifying as a Texas Jack Rabbit. And people discount the fact that he does not have us in a war, more or less slowed the daily media blitz by slowing the roll of Isis, has negotiated with North Korea whom the media propped as bad guy #1, created steps to stop China from stealing US intellectual property, job growth stronger than any time since 1997, framework for infrastructure, etc. And because he wants good relations with Russia, there must be collusion.
People here call you a Trump supporter for simply pointing out facts. And as was said by the OP, every person is flawed. But had Hillary won, Isis would likely still be kicking dust in faces, we'd already been in Iran, the PC movement would be further along, government spending would be as the Democrats like it high, North Korea would still be more of a threat and our economy in shambles.
While Trump is rough around the edges, the American people wanted a drastic change from typical politicians. While he is raw and unfettered with his tweets, he is getting things accomplished despite attacks from the left which will one day be legendary. Even the policies on how we detained immigrants were created by Obama and others past, not him.
The bottom line is that Trump was the last hope to keep the US from entering full-fledged globalism. And most here know that globalism is the elites plan of one world control. If you want one world think that would be grand.
Lastly, while I do think Trump is not exactly lovable. I can objectively recognize the positives. I can also see the Soros funded left raising hell with Russian collusion, with no proof two years later. I can see the brainwashing media exposed like they have never been before as people wake. I can see the once proud for freedom of speech democrats want their made-up PC rules. I can see that the establishment is on the left and the right and that snakes in the grass are all around Trump trying to keep their control going.
Trump came onto the world scene amongst a climate of "political correctness" that had become truly insane. I used to work in a company where some of the other members of staff could easily have taken seats in the classroom featured in this sketch...
what i do like about him:
tells it like it is - straight talk (blaming the white nationalists AND antifa for charlottesville, which made don lemon on CNN cry)
unpolished ("go home to mommy" lol!!)
first amendment advocate (currently with the social media purge)
anti- PC looniness
not a politician
didnt kowtow to the queen on his trip to the UK
attempting to straighten out the huge mess that is the US is
his aggressive deal style works (although no one seems to know hes doing it)
bypasses the media and speaks directly to the people
VERY much anti-human trafficking
opened up dialogue with russia (long overdue- the cold war is over, democrats) and north korea
what i dont like about him:
a little TOO many 'unfiltered' tweets
unpolished ("ill bomb the shit out of them")
brought in different swamp members to 'drain the swamp'
doesnt have hillary behind bars yet
allowed local law enforcement access to military gear (just heard that from him during his address to a group of sheriffs)
the NWO is using him as a way to further divide the country (if thats even possible) by allowing him to try and repair the social/economic damage we have accrued for many years, and i dont think he knows it. its a lose-lose situation, but at least its waking a few people up.
the corruption is so pervasive in washington and in the FBI/ CIA/ justice dept that i doubt he will be able to accomplish anything. there are only a handful of people NOT taking bribes or blackmail orders by someone behind the scenes. his honesty and truthfulness about how things are and what really needs to be done only antagonizes the already polarized public-- those sucking off the system or benefitting from big fat government + loopholes will be outraged at him for correcting the problems and his supporters will be outraged when no one in DC supports him.
bottom line is that i think the country is too far gone to be salvaged-- there are not enough honest people left. that said, i LOVE the fact that he is pointing out what the problems are and who the problem people are. we wont see another person like trump again in the WH, sadly. after he is gone, it will be back to business as usual.
I support him on an issue by issue basis. Personality isn't a big concern of mine, but I like that he is a fighter unlike most Republicans who let the left brand them as racist. I like how he's tried to restore sovereignty to our country. I wish he'd have done more (the wall) but it's hard with all the establishment/swamp creatures in the way. Immigration has basically turned into the 3rd rail of politics because of all the powerful forces who support huge numbers. Greedy businesses interests want cheaper labor and to keep wages down, Democrats see immigration as their way to rule the country moving forward, the media wants to help Democrats so they relentlessly support it, and then you have powerful individuals like Soros who wants to sow discord and eliminate borders. So I wish Trump would do more on immigration but he's done better than anyone since Eisenhower.
On foreign policy, he's been a little disappointing. Wish we'd just pull out of the Middle East, including being so involved with Israel. I get the vibe from the media they're trying to push war with Syria again. Hopefully President Trump is smart enough to stay out. I'm glad he's fighting the warmongering media about starting a cold war with Russia. Also John Bolton and Nikki Haley... Gross.
On the economy, meh. Tax bill wasn't great. Didn't eliminate carried interest loophole and address a bunch of special carve outs like Trump campaigned on. Special interests got their claws in that bill.
The two SCOTUS picks have been great choices. All in all I believe his heart is in the right place and he's done better than most would do, but sometimes the swamp gets the best of him.
I like him - he got my vote. I was always a Democrat...but Democrats of yesteryear are not the Democrats of today... I guess I've become more conservative with age too - but with age comes perspective, and you can see change that younger people can't. I saw the way America was going, and it wasn't good and it was getting a lot worse. Of course, the same can be said for a lot of the world, but I know this - Obama caused massive division in this country - massive division. Also, for being a "liberal," he was one hell of a war-monger.
Trump has been good for the U.S. - economy is improving, stock market booming, jobs on the rise...what's not to like? So he makes ridiculous tweets - so what? How many Presidents have we had that towed the line, were good orators and the like but in the same breath would turn around and pull scummy, back-room deals? Trump says it like it is.
