Why Donald Trump is an Awesome President
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 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.
