    Since he has not made America great again, it's very silly of him to think that we can now "keep it great". Almost everything is worse than it was when he started, and we're on the edge of another, probably larger recession. We'll see how well that works out for him.
    Agree that it was a good slogan. But the slogan begs the question: when was America great, and what made it stop being great?: civil rights laws? Women no longer having to tolerate sexual harassment? Enviornmental protections? I can understand the notion that globalization has harmed sectors of our economy, but aside from that more or less inevitable process, what made the US less great?

    The only answer I have heard from my "ok, when was America great?" question has suggested the 1950s. But that is pretty lame, given that the US was prospering on an artificial high while Europe was still recovering from WWII. The 1950s were great for blue collar union workers, Trump's base if you forget the "union" part and think of whites only, but were the fifties were great for black and brown Americans? Or were they great because they and women knew their place? Repeat that it is a great slogan. I bet Mussolini might have said "make Italy great again." That's the problem as I see it, as fascism as a style is a longing for an almost mythical past, and Trump's style is unmistakably fascist. (I don't use that word as a necessarily negative term, though I think it is, but as a measure of the appeal of Trump's style.)

    The fact that you're showing so much butt hurt over an election and a red cap, a symbol of that win, makes me feel so less confident...

    I'm not showing anything but the truth. Your president is a failure and the slogan is garbage.

    "Make America Great" would certainly be a more factually accurate slogan, but it doesn't embrace the patriotism and nationalism prevalent in our country. Also, everyone recognizes, regardless of the reason, that there was certainly more economic success after WW2, and that more or less carried on up through Reagan. Since then, we've stagnated hard, in many ways, with what progress we do make all going to benefit the top 1%. So, it's not like there's not something to the "getting back to that" mindset. The people who have the MAGA mindset, though, never understand the reasons for why the good things stopped, and they'd want the bad things to return, as well, so that's not good.

    Wealth should trickle up.
