I hope jj4783 reads the following because here's another perspective on Trump's first 500 days accomplishments

 

  • More indictments in his first 500 days than any other President
  • More lies to the American people than any other President
  • More attacks on the free press than any other President
  • More insults of individuals and ethnic groups than any other President
  • Changed his mind on the same issue more times than any other President
  • More insults of women than any other President
  • More payoffs to women than any other President
  • More attacks on our Intelligence agencies than any other President
  • More attacks on the Justice Department and the FBI than any other President
  • More children separated from their parents than any other President in modern history
  • Trump's new tax law will probably add $2 Trillion to the nation's debt while making the ultra rich and large corporations even richer
  • Trump left the TPP, giving China control of the lucrative Asian markets
  • More resignations from his cabinet than any other President during the first 500 days
  • More attacks against our ALLIES than any other President in modern history
  • More tariffs that will probably lead to a global trade war
  • More praise for dictators like Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin than any other President
  • For the first time since WW II, the leader of the Free World is NOT the American President

Well what a list most of it right out of fanitasy land. To cover all of it would take 10 pages, so lets cover some by the numbers.

500 days:

1. Not true. He has made up the laughing stock of the world. He is wrecking every program put in by our forfathers after WW2 so we would not have WW3.

2. We were just warned last week by the budget people that the US is headed for possible bankrpucty. We will have he largest National Debt ever in a few years  due to Trump and his so called Tax cut. So it is clear Trump is wrecking the American economy. Just tonight GM warned it will cut back astivties in the US due to the Trump trade war. Harley D has already said it will move production off shoe due to Trump. Newspaper all over the country are laying off people due to the Trump Tariff on News print paper.. So what you post is not true.

3. & 4. They are pure nonsense. He is the laughing stock of the world, and countries all over the world are pulling away from us. Just tonight we hear from our Intel people the NK has increased its Necular Program axctivties, yet Trump told us they are not a threat anymore. He lied just like he lies aboput everything else.

As pointed out America Economy is not stronger, but is starting to get weaker everyday. We have been living under the Obama economy untill now as there is always a lag in the up and down economy. You do not know much about economics. The rest of your items are pure nonsense with the exception of regulation, and no one can say what will happen with them. Dod Frank is an example. Dod Frank was put into place to prevent another colapse like we had in 2008. It has worked so far, and it did need some adjustment but it looks like the far right went to far. Time will tell. American Farmers have just lost most of the forgein coustomers they had due to Trumps Tafiff war. You speak of his border policy. It is a disater as we see every day.

Rather than go further let me say to you. All you did was take the points you were given and post them in here word for word. Trump goal is to become a Dicator just like his master in Russia, and based on Hitler. To do that he needs enablers who will post what they are told, and understand none of it. Trump first 500 days item I have seen q
