Excellent.

Thanks, love! I have FAR more good ones than bad ones so they tend to stand out. All good now!

More than satisfied.
Imagine how much further we'd be if the political headwinds weren't so stiff.

I don't see any evidence to support the theory that President Trump was raped because he dressed provocatively. Kavanaugh wasn't "jacknuts on Twitter" and look what they did to him!

I don't want to argue with you, but we see this differently. Kav is a whole other story, and I totally agree with you on that.

Unfortunately Mr. Trump is in a Catch-22. He pushes back on the often false narratives of the media and bypasses the press entirely by using twitter to take his message to the people. This is both positive and negative.

Additionally, he is a street fighter and doesn't mind, 'taking it to the gravel' with anyone. Is it Presidential...probably not. Is it effective...judge for yourself. Against a serious headwind, he's made quite a bit of progress on his agenda and his stamp on the federal judgeships will last for decades.

How much progress has he made outside of pure Executive power - which is impervious to "serious headwind" regardless?

This is just "I have a phone, and I have a pen" redux.

Treaties require team work. It's just an example.

Forgive me for being underwhelmed, though I'm sure Montenegro is appropriately grateful. 2/3rds of the Senate doesn't require that much "teamwork", either.

Nope, not at all. Just giving my opinion.

These treaties are pretty minor stuff when it comes to examples of "accomplishments" Trump has made outside of things that are 100% within his control.

Tax cuts would be a good example, though there's an argument to be made about whether those are net positive or net negative for the country.

I gave this thread a 24 hours window to see how many would think Trump is doing a terrible job and 16 of you (as of this posting) ticked that option.

Would love to hear from some of these 16 people how Trump can do a better job than what he has been doing in terms of performance. Remember it is the performance OP is asking here.

To relate to a car forums we belong, it is similar to the following. Are you happy with GT500's performance or are you happy with GT3 RS' performance? All without your brand perceptions/bias.

Well, I voted "no" because I'm overall dissatisfied with Trump's presidency and that was the only applicable selection. Is he doing a "terrible" job? No. He's not doing a "good" job, either.

I voted no, because my perception of how he operates does not indicate that he has had an intelligent and planned approach to any of the undertakings of his administration that have turned out to be ok. What we see is that he would make a random comment in the public place that he either thinks his crowd wants to hear or it's something that his egomaniacal and narcissistic self wants to put out there and then his administration would try to turn this turd into gold and sometimes they would have reasonable success. That does not make him a good leader.
Take the wall for example. He pitched an expensive solid concrete wall at first. Unless you have lived under a rock, you would know that there are drones, ladders, shovels, and explosives invented that can get stuff to the other side one way or another. Then reality starts to set in and he starts building fencing with metal slats in some places along the border. Then a miracle happens - illegal traffic decreases in such areas - the wall is working!! Let's build more of it!! Not really, illegals just started crossing elsewhere.
To this point I'm yet to meet an intelligent person that likes Trump and wants to vote for him for a reason other than that they hate the Dem candidates, the PC, the LGBTQ emphasis, tax increases, antigun activisim... This doesn't seem like an approach that will result into electing a reasonable person for this job. Let's elect a reasonable person. We have the other branches of goverment to represent our opinions and keep the administrationhonest.p
