Sorry,but the +100 days thread had turned into a gun advocacy thread.

Let's start a new thread to discuss the disaster of the Trump presidency

Despite it being a "disaster" a recent poll showed that 82% of Republicans approve of his job as president.

This is both something and nothing.

Good for him on party loyalty.

Bad for him when considering all registered voters. Last I saw, 23-24% of voters are registered Republican, trending downward. So, you've only accounted for 19-20% of all voters. I'm sure he has a few people who are not Republicans who also approve of his job performance, but that's not a very strong number in itself.

Of course we do! He has been doing a great job while fighting the establishment. The haters will of course keep hating the next 6.5 years, but so what? They will hate any non-Democrat non-liberal out there. The thing is, most only talk to folks who think like they do. They think the rest of the nation hates more secure borders and prefers higher taxes.

So let em hate! Here is to hoping they put forth the most crazy, unelectable person in 2020. They are currently doing an executive search for someone for whom the most minority boxes can be checked. Even talking Michelle Obama, to show how empty their bench is.

Then we can vote Pence in 2024!

Did you think the tariff announcement was a good thing?

I'm not sure. But it was clearly a bad thing for the stock market. Since DJT took credit (I think rightly so) for the pretty significant upswing in the market since his election, he definitely owns this (relatively) small downturn. An honest, ego controlled leader (he is not) would say "I know the market went down because of these tariffs, but they are necessary for the following reasons....".

I want a President who is NOT afraid of 'scaring' the market if he feels the policy is overall good for the country. Just admit it and be open and clear.

Thanks, but do you think tariffs and protectionism in today's market are good things? Do you believe Trump when he says that Americans are getting a terrible deal on its trading? Do you also believe that the retaliation that will take place will be good for the consumer?

And more importantly do you think the policies he is enacting are actually good for the country (not symbolically good, actually good)?
