    Do you like Trump?

    By this, I mean are you overall OK with his policies as President? Do you think he's done a good job? Are you not sure what to think of Trump's Presidency? Please answer in the poll.

    I personally think he's no different from the Presidents that came before.

    I love his policies, I don't feel the need to like him, he's not my neighbor.

    You should have aimed your question directly at independents. You are bound to just get partisans answers.

    I think he is thin skinned and obnoxious. A boor as some would say. I don't like the man.

    His policies will be weighed over time.

    The Trump Presidency is still too young for proper evaluation and it may be too early in his term to give his administration a fair grade. I do not like the vindictive tone of both the Trump Presidency and those arrayed against him. Both sides are damaging the social and moral fabric of the nation and both sides are threatening its long-term viability. I think the Trump presidential win was a necessary evil. It was needed to shock the American electorate out of its complacency, dormancy and apathy and was needed to focus the people and drive them back to political activism on all sides of the political spectrum. Trump is triggering grass-roots activism both among his supporters and his rivals and that is good because it erodes the powers of the elites and rapidly emerging American oligarchy. In that respect I think he has been successful, by acting like a giant, country-wide dose of ipecac to cause America to vomit up all the worst aspects of its national politics and to lay the disfunctional political system bare for all to see.

    However his bellicose nature and impetuous belligerence, as the commander in chief of the US Military, in foreign affairs, may become an existential threat to America's well being, if he ends up starting wars which America cannot win. That worries me. His policies can be reversed and his hateful legacy worked around but lives cannot be restored and fissionables have very long half-lives. He is also making dark alliances with very evil regimes and those ties will come back to haunt America soon while at the same time continuing to poison the US state with authoritarianism and militarism which threatens liberty and democracy at home.

    So, in conclusion President Trump is a two-edged sword and it remains to be seen which cuts he delivers will go deep to the quick. Will he expose and destroy American oligarchy, corporatism and elitism by so brazenly and shamelessly promoting it or will he plunge the whole nation into needless wars of pique and adventure, doing real and irreversible harm to the USA?

    Cheers?

    Trump is a one trick pony, a buffoon, a real bigot, a huckster, an idiot, a man of godawful bad taste, a person devoid of integrity, ethics and morals. He has never done one thing for America. NOTHING! He is not a fine American. He is not a patriot. He is not a veteran. He is not a leader. Hell, his daddy bought his way into 2 years of Wharton.

    Trump is a sham, an opportunist, a terrible chancer who doesn't have any special knowledge or education or skill. Most of the people who support Trump have more common sense than he does. Unfortunately many have Sycophant Syndrome. We're dealing with that.










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    He is different in a few important ways. His campaign was primarily self funded and he is not beholden to big donors, such as the Koch brothers or George Soros, or for that matter, the US Chamber of Commerce. And unlike the republican establishment, he is taking the republican platform seriously and following through on his promises to enforce it. That is a novelty in modern politics.....actually following through on campaign promises.
