    The tax bill is his only major legislative accomplishment that could possibly effect anything, and that won't be felt for awhile. However, soaring deficits are predicted, and history reveals it causes inflation, so whatever minuscule tax breaks imparted to the middle class, the inflation likely ensue will erode those gains entirely, while the rich's benefits from that bill, which is 87% of that bill, will remain intact because the rich can hedge like no other. That tax bill represents a wealth transfer from the poor to the rich more than any bill passed in history. It's a total disgrace.

    Anyway, what kind of "accomplishment" is a tax bill for republicans, they usually are a slam dunk, and this one almost didn't get passed, he's the first prez in conservative history that didn't get a slam dunk on a tax bill, and it's a stinker.

    The EO reversals, many, of not most, are insane, I can show you the list of things he's repealed and if you think they are good, you should hold your head in shame:

    Here are but a few (about 1/3 the total list, can't put them all here).





    Sorry, Obama took the action to congress, in the belief that congressional support would make the action stronger. He was totally willing to enforce the red line, and had every right to get congress on board. but......

    S.J.Res.21 never was taken to the floor for a vote. So don't give many any crap about obama not enforcing the "red line".




    Stats aside, the greater concern is that we have a buffoon and a pathological liar in charge of the nuke football.

    As far as I'm concerned, every other issue is moot until Trump is taken down, due to the fact he is a threat to our national security.
    Look, we have been warned to not discuss economic issues on this thread so if you want to be schooled in the actual data go to the Govt. spending and debt forum and I will educate you how the upward trajectory of jobs filled by 8-9 million part time positions doesn't bode well for the American public and how the base number of 146 is the right one so for 9 years there were 6 million jobs created. But this thread is about Syria and Obama drew a red line in the sand, he didn't need Congressional support but his lack of leadership skills and very poor decision making traits only is supported by leftwing radicals who don't understand leadership either.

    Obama's resume showed that he was unqualified for the position and his loss of the peace in Iraq and his failure to act in Syria embolden our enemies. They knew that Obama was a paper tiger and took advantage of that. That isn't going to happen with Trump who has the leadership and management skills you leftists can only dream about. Trump enforced the Syria Red line and our enemies now have the message. we are safer as a results

    I really don't care that people like you are concerned about who has the nuclear football but hope our enemies now operate like you for that makes us safer. No enemy knows what Trump is going to do except when he says something he will deliver. Trump is keeping his promises on America first and rebuilding our national security. I sleep well at night again knowing he is in charge. Our enemies know that we have rebuilt our credibility and our missiles, those of the UK and France put us back in a leadership position around the world. Thank you Obama for giving us Trump

    You realize he announced what he was going to do and that he tells the Russians where the strike is going to be so we don't end up starting WWIII. Of course, telling the Russians where we're going to strike gives Assad time to move anything that matters out.

    But hey, there were Big Explosions, so hurrah!

    we were joined by the UK and France which many here said he had alienated. Trump keeps destroying the liberal narrative but that doesn't stop the speculation. You have no clue what Trump did with Russia and totally ignore what this country, the UK and France did to Assad. Keep up the hate filled rhetoric and watch this country rebuild our defenses from the Obama malaise and our enemies learn to fear us again making us safer. You leftists don't have a clue and are so full of hatred you cannot see any actual positive results.

    Yep, just like the statement "All Unicorns have six horns." is "logically true" since it is impossible to produce a "Unicorn" that DOES NOT have "six horns".

    NO, we don't need a boy scout, but we don't need a sex predator, financial scammer, dictator lover, pathological liar, vile and petty mouthed bloviator, constitution violator, etc etc etc, either.

    I've got one thing to say to Donald Trump:

    Robert Mueller III.

    You like Trump because he's quick on the draw, and that caters to the impish desires of his base.

    That's no mark of a great president.

    I constantly hear repubs say "Obama was afraid act militarily", and I wonder where that idea comes? Heck, in 2016 alone he dropped 26,171 bombs all over the middle east.

    Sure, I'll accept that Trump can occasionally make a few right moves, the story isnt over, and the truth will be known, and his crimes will be plain to see in the years to come. And my bet is that you are betting on the wrong horse.

    You've been conned by the master, and I admit, he's good at it.

Give a little logic and common sense here as I have asked this question before and all I get is silence. That means it is all about hatred of Trump not economic or foreign policy results
    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for 2017 was 2,188 million more, not 3 million -- the slowest gain since 2012. If you don't believe me, click the link to the BLS. The 2017 numbers are below. Do the math.

    And I thank Trump for waking up dems in November.

    We shall see what the voters say. In November, no fluke of the electoral college will prop his agenda up this time.

    Fortunately you didn't include the graphed results because they make it look like the "employment gain" is (essentially) "flat" from 2011 onward.

    On the other hand, I am sure that "Conservative" will take issue with those so-called "statistics" since they don't say what he would like them to say (and come from a totally unreliable, left-wing, liberal, socialist, source at that).

    And he will continue to alienate the world. You're making a mistake in logic, that the recent bombings is now equal to Trump love,
    that's absurd. Uk and France, they dont like Trump, but they are pragmatists.


    No, Trump will continue to infuriate foreign leaders, and the reason is Trump will be Trump, and he can't help himself that he is, at his core, an empty vessel, a despicable human being.

    Not to agree with your solution, but if to attempt your solution, why not accept Syrian refugees in the meantime?
