The Great Divide in Trump's Presidency

Updated on August 27, 2018

No president has been so divisive on so many levels than Trump. His only die-hard, blinded, followers are less than 40-45% of the U.S. population. These souls are akin to a mania reminiscent of Beatle fans. No matter what Trump says or does, no matter if he committed crimes or cheated on his present wife, colluded with the Russians for financial gain, his base just loves him. He could cuss at God or commit murder, his base would just say, " it has nothing to do with the Presidency". They would continue to cite, "Jobs are way up, so is the stock market, and he's doing what he promised". Even Trump knows he can do extreme things that normally most people will not accept, yet his base will. His followers are devoted to him in an almost eccentric way. They love his personality and policy.

The Rest of US

Now, the remaining Americans, some 60%, refrain from Trumpmania. We may like some of his policies and their outcomes, we may like some things he might say, but overall we find Trump's personality very non-presidential and gutter-like, at times. We are not brainwashed by his fake news that comes out of his mouth on a near daily basis, in fact, we know he lies all the time about facts. Either he is ignorant of some facts or he spins it so he gets the credit, because Trump is in love with himself. We know he is going to give himself an A+ for being president, LOL, would you expect anything less? We know most of the 60% would NOT be so generous with this grade. We know that the economy is growing and the stock market is gaining, and we can give Trump that credit. These are good Trump policies but we still despise his personality. Despise him as a person on a personal level akin to a boss you cannot stand, for whatever reason. Some simply cannot stand his physical appearance, especially that orange hair. But, most, just do not like the character or lack of character of this president.

So, that is the problem. You either like everything about the man and what he has done as president, or you cannot stand him as a person, his past and present DOES matter to you. For the Trumpers, his past has nothing to do with being president. For everyone else, the past and present DOES matter. It defines what kind of man he his, and when he cannot give McCain a tribute as everyone else has since his death, the rest of us simply find this of low character. The lowest of character and disgraceful especially for a POTUS. Trump then tells the media that Paul Manafort is a great American after being found guilty of numerous tax evasion and fraud charges! Well, after all, he was Trump's campaign manager in 2016.

This president has caused the great divide in America. You either like his personality and policy or one generally hates the man for his character and personality (this skews how one views his policies). This is how America is today. Split nearly down the middle.
