Why Donald Trump is an Awesome President

Updated on March 29, 2018

One cannot disagree about one thing regarding President Trump, the entertainment value he provides all media outlets is outstanding. No other president, not even, Nixon or Kennedy, could provide high ratings on just about anything associated with a name. Likewise, no other president has had such hardcore followers than Trump. My God, look at all the chaos he has done within his cabinet and with his own personal life before the election. He cheats on his wife several times and yet, his supporters could care less. He acts like King Trump and his supporters look the other way. Now, there have been many presidents who outright lied to the American people about many things, but when this president lies, the media make sure it is known (and rightly so!).

The Good Things

Believe it or not, Trump has done some good things that even the left like. Trump has acted well on foreign policy (for the most part) by being decisive when needed. Obama was Mr. Wishy-Washy during much of his time and then laid down a red line in Syria that was ignored by Assad and nothing happened. Trump has given $47 million to Ukraine for military equipment when Obama seemed to be afraid it might anger Putin.

History notes that four presidents all wanted to move Israel's capital to Jerusalem but were afraid to do it because the Muslims might take offense. In May, the U.S. Embassy will relocate to Jerusalem, the new capital of Israel. It will be interesting to see the Arab reaction and how Trump will handle it. Trump was also the first president to get NATO to pay their fair share of the costs coming to $12 billion. Both Obama and Bush all failed.

Then there is ISIS. Obama was simply horrible dealing with them, always afraid to let our military do their job. Trump removed many military requirements on engagement, conducted more airstrikes and special Ops. The result is most of ISIS is gone except for small remnants. In Afghanistan, unlike Obama that tried to get out, Trump reversed the trend and sent more troops. Since this is America's longest war, it is hard to see if Trump's strategy is any better. This war is simply another Vietnam.

With North Korea, maybe his insane name calling and actions simply made NK nervous about what he would do, enough so for their leader to take a train to China to confer with them before the two leaders meet. Maybe Trump's lunacy created enough uncertainty in China and NK to force both to think of non-nuclear options. The Chinese surely do not want a nuclear NK.

On the domestic arena, Trump's tax cut seems on its surface to be a good thing to stimulate businesses here and abroad. With the tax rates changed, individuals and business will ramp up the economy.

The Bad

The bad severely outweigh the good. DACA and immigration is just a mess, the same can be said of healthcare, which is skyrocketing despite Trump's attempt. The gun control issue will simmer resulting in nothing much happening. Trump opened up many previously closed wildlife areas to allow for oil exploration. Trump's pre-presidential life continues to hinder him, his association with Trump tower in Moscow and Putin's close oligarchs, a deal nearly done in 2013. His sex with a porn star and a Playboy bunny in 2006-7, just after he was married to Melania, must be a real strain on him.

But to President Trump, only bad things are fake news, even when proven otherwise.

      Regardless of who is president, we need to respect the position and support him. I do believe Trump is making a good difference in the long run.

      Have you ever really done a comparison? A list showing possible investigations on Presidents has Trump leading all other Presidents. Obama had none and Reagan was second to Nixon followed by Bill Clinton. The Hillary comparison is getting old as well. Did you know she was never President but thanks to Trump she has been elavated from retirement. Did you know Democrats do not even like her? The only people who care is Trump, Putin, Fox News and the idiots who support them. Its a support group that keeps getting smaller. A recent survey found that only 20 percent think Fox News is not fake News.I am not here to discredit anyone, I am only steing the facts. 87 million peoples facebook information is now in Russia and its just a witch hunt. I am going to fire the special prosecuter because I am innocent. How much evidence do we really need? Benedict Arnold is your President and I am not even sure if your vote was counted. He might not have needed it. When Pittsburgh paid off the refs to steal a Super Bowl they were not going to play the game again. The one thing he will do is drain the swamp. It will be drained when he leaves and an electorate that never wants to expearience this again will hopefully bring some changes to ensure it never happens again.

      The good severely outweighs the bad with trump.

      He has kept his campaign promises, or at least has forced congressional votes on them. No other President in my lifetime has done that. For that alone he is better than every other President in my lifetime.

      He does lie sometimes, but when he does. He lies to the biggest scumbags in politics. The very left leaning main stream media who tells more lies about him than I would ever in my wildest dreams would do.

      He is attacking the middle class killing free trade agreements with tariffs!!! About time a president stood up for the working class.... Democrats say there for the middle class, yet do NOTHING to help. They only care about illegal aliens and people who cant decide what sex they are.

      He is very pro-constitution.

      So what if he bang a couple of hot bimbos like stormy daniels. At least he is not a rapist like bill Clinton..... Yes liberals, bill was a serial rapist. The msm just ignored the many victims since bill was THER GUY who feared the media.

      Trump is not great, but he is 10 time better than what has come before him for decades!

      Trump IS MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and you all know it even if you hate his guts.

      And where is your information on what he is doing with them?

      Are the democrats helping anyone or anybody?

      What did Trump personally do that affects you?

      What hasn't he done that affects you?

      I don't get it, all I see if pure emotion without any substance coming from you.

      whether a president inherits problems from a previous admin is now not an issue, the issue is now what Trump does with them. If all he is going to do is blame Obama and not correct it to make it better, then, Trump has nothing to trump about.

      That is not true because the democrats continue to do bad, and it is their resistance that is preventing or making it difficult for Trump to do his job as president.

      You didn't comment on my specific comments?

      There is no blame that goes to Trump. He inherited the problems but he didn't create them.

      Like when President Obama created DACA through Exec Order, and then when Trump tried to remove DACA through Exec Order, the liberal 9th circuit court blocked it.

      Not as a principle of law, but one of bias for the left. This also included the courts resistance to a TEMPorary Ban, for 90 days. Trump wanted the ban for National Security.

      What has happened to you PerryA?

      Thanks Brad, while there is plenty of blame to go around to both parties for the things listed under The Bad, the ball is now in Trump's court. The past is the past and if Trump fails in resolving the things, I suppose the Trump supporters will continue to blame the other side. Time will tell just how well Trump does.

      The Bad

      The bad severely outweigh the good.

      DACA and immigration is just a mess,

      B: DACA was an executive order of president Obama, and has nothing to do with president Trump. The democrats, and not the president eiterh Obama or Trump were the ones to make the laws. The democrats failed to do that, it is on their shoulders.

      During president Obama the federal government failed to enforce the existing immigration laws.

      -------------------------------------

      the same can be said of healthcare, which is skyrocketing despite Trump's attempt.

      B:

      Once again, you have to blame Obamacare, and the democrats for blocking whatever health care plan that Trump was submitting. The only thing that Trump was able to do was to take the TAX off for people that didn't want insurance. Otherwise, no change.

      Again the blame goes to the democrats.

      And BTW, how much of the healthcare system is impacted by the millions of illegal aliens that get free medical?

      ----------------------------------

      The gun control issue will simmer resulting in nothing much happening.

      B:

      Gun control again goes to the democrats. In 2009-2011 they had a super majority in congress, and they could have written and passed any gun control laws. But the fact is they didn't even write any!

      -----------------------------

      Trump opened up many previously closed wildlife areas to allow for oil exploration.

      B:

      And now we are no longer at the mercy of OPEC. That is a good thing.

      -----------------

      Trump's pre-presidential life continues to hinder him,

      B:

      What is important is what he is doing as president?

      --------------------------

      his association with Trump tower in Moscow and Putin's close oligarchs, a deal nearly done in 2013.

      B:

      Once again he wasn't president in 2013, and you ignore the real Russian Deal done when Hillary Clinton was Sec of State and she allowed RUSSIA to buy 20% of all US Uranium production.

      And then president Obama gave $400 million to Iran in cash, followed by more than 1.5 billion dollars. Now, Iran can afford to buy as much Uranium with that money as they can get from Russia. And you are going to compare that with A building?

      ----------------------

      His sex with a porn star and a Playboy bunny in 2006-7, just after he was married to Melania, must be a real strain on him

      B:

      It is no strain, and Stormy Daniels is history.

      So far you have nothing on president Trump.

      ------------------------.

      But to President Trump, only bad things are fake news, even when proven otherwise.

      B:

      There are no bad things in your list that can be imputed to president Trump

      ---------------------------

      I am surprised you didn't pull out the 2005 Billy Bush story.

      You just don't get it. There is no longer any Real News, all that claim to be News, including Fox are not reporting the news, they are analyzing the News, and that makes it FAKE.

      Who, what, where, when and why.

      And these should be based by facts, and those facts verified.

      Can you give some examples of Real and Fake News.

      And when people don't like Trump they say he is making news FAKE.

      He certainly creates his own fake news to counter what he thinks is fake news, LOL. If he does not like it, he will call it fake news.
