"In just 50 days Trump has our country back on track...thats a great thing for the US."

 

He certainly has our country on a track, but not necessarily the right one. Please check out the following.

  • Fired his National Security advisor because he lied to the VP
  • HIs National Security Advisor was working as an agent for Turkey.
  • Trump LIED to America when he claimed President Obama tapped his Trump Tower telephone last October.
  • Trump insulted and alienated the entire American Intelligence community, which endangers our national security
  • Trump played golf at least 8 or more times (During the campaign he criticized President Obama for playing golf and promised he wouldn't do that).
  • Trump wrote 16 Executive Orders. Are you kidding? Trump and his supporters repeatedly claimed President Obama was circumventing the Constitution and breaking the law when he wrote Executive Orders. You can't make up the high level of hypocrisy displayed by Trump lovers.
  • Trump lied about the election returns
  • Trump lied about the size of the Inauguration crowd
  • Trump lied etc. (can't keep up with all of his lies)

I think the number of the "left" that want Trump not to succeed is much smaller than you think.  Personally, I don't think his policies will work and will leave us worse off.  But, that doesn't mean I want him to fail.  I hope I am wrong and our Country and everyone in it comes out stronger and better off.
 
There is a difference between somebody expressing their views that he is on the wrong track and somebody actively working to make sure his policies fail.
 
Caring more about the party perfectly describes the "Tea Party" who will not elect anybody who will compromise and will "primary" those who do.  That is where one of the problems with our system lies.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration marks a milestone this weekend: 50 days in office.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/03/10/donald-trump-50-days-accomplishments/98998246...

Administration officials plan to hit social media and use interviews in the coming days to promote what they call "50 days of action," from the planned wall along the U.S.-Mexican border to a $54 billion hike in the defense budget.

Trump mentioned the 50-day mark in a weekly address Friday otherwise devoted to Women's History Month and health care.

Throughout the morning, Trump aides and associates tweeted and posted statements and videos about the administration, using the White House website and other social media channels. Citing a new report showing that the economy added 235,000 jobs last month, White House spokesman Sean Spicer tweeted, "Not a bad way to start day 50 of this Administration."


The first two months of the Trump administration have generated protests, lawsuits and intense political opposition. The Democratic National Committee plans a "turnaround tour" to respond to what it calls the administration's "corporate handouts and broken promises to America’s working families.


The White House list of 50-day accomplishments includes a series of Trump executive actions designed to reduce government regulations, tighten the nation's borders, roll back President Obama's health care law and increase military spending.

USA TODAY Poll: Tweets and temperament are tripping up President Trump
On the jobs front, the Trump administration touts decisions to withdraw from the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership with Asian nations and authorize construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines. As part of its trade policy, the administration has discussed the possibility of tariffs and border taxes.

Trump's anti-regulation agenda includes a rule requiring that "for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations be eliminated" and establishing a task force to identify "costly and unnecessary regulations," the White House said. The president has instituted a federal hiring freeze.

"President Trump has quickly taken steps to get the government out of the way of job creation," the White House statement said.

The administration has endorsed a House Republican plan to replace and repeal Obamacare, though some conservatives oppose it, saying it doesn't go far enough.

A budget proposal is scheduled for release next week. Trump has called for a $54 billion increase in defense spending, to be offset by the same amount of cuts in domestic programs.

Immigration is a big part of the Trump administration's 50-day push. In addition to the border wall, the administration has called for a crackdown on "sanctuary cities" and emphasized deportation of migrants with criminal records. The White House said Trump has authorized the hiring of 10,000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers and agents and 5,000 Border Patrol agents.

Trump has nominated appeals court Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.

It has been among the busiest periods in presidential history, and it has not lacked controversy.

The administration's initial plan to suspend entry into the USA from specifically listed Muslim countries drew protests and lawsuits, forcing changes.

Trump and aides have faced questions about Russian activity during last year's presidential election.

The president, who said neither he nor his aides had anything to do with the Russians, accused predecessor Barack Obama of having him wiretapped in the run-up to the election in November.

Though Trump's approval ratings have been below average for new presidents, he retains strong support from the Republican Party.

In planning the Democrats' "turnaround tour," DNC Deputy Chairman Keith Ellison, a Minnesota congressman, said party members will develop alternatives to the new administration.

"Progressives are hungry to fight back against the disaster that has been Donald Trump’s first two months in the White House," Ellison said.

========================================================

Trump is driving the far left nuts.

The next 44 months are going to be a rough ride ...but its good to see we have a President that is not afraid to do what he feels to be needed...what a change form Obama!

I never said he called ALL news outlets fake. What you posted was what he said at CPAC, what I referenced was one of his tweets.
Breitbart has a deservedly horrible reputation. I would always fact check anything Breitbart has to say and probably use the fact check site as my source. Let's look at what Breitbart calls his accomplishments:
National Security: Since we have never been attacked by anybody on his lists, I don't see where he has increased it.
Immigration: Building the wall I see as a waste of money. Insisting terrorists are coming over the border is also just playing on fear.
Jobs and the Economy: Too early to tell. Let's see the track we are on in another 3 to 6 months.
Escalating the war on the media: You already know how I feel about that.
Diplomacy: How has he helped our diplomatic positions?
Abortion and transgender bathrooms: Stopped funding for International planned parenthood and who cares what he thinks about transgender bathrooms, that is an issue for the Courts.

Why don't you research what his plans were for his first 100 days that he wrote in October and many of those he will even attempt to fulfill in the next 50 days.

==========================================================

I am sure the media will hold his feet to the fire...as they should.

Yes, I know were you stand.

So enough of this back and forth..I posted what Trump has done and if you do not like it you have a lot of company. I like the fact that Trump is doing what he feel is best for our country and what he said to get elected.






Thank you for the thorough analysis of what I posted.

I'm glad you have never made a mistake your life. Check out an earlier post where I listed a link to the most trusted new sources. To reference Breitbart and then accuse other sources of being "fake" is a joke. Plus, you are trying to use an opinion piece as a fact. How many opinion pieces are out there with a less than favorable rating of his first 50 days?


========================================

I like most have made many mistakes in my life.

My source was USA Today....not fake news. Fake news is news outlets that say that Trump called ALL news outlets fake news outlets ...when in fact he said was the the enemy of our country is fake news...he was correct. I think you can understand that.

Major Impact: President Donald Trump’s First 50 Days in Office ...that listed things he has done with facks to back they up. That is not fake news.
