Trumpeteers wanted disruption, "drain the swamp," vanquish ISIS, and above all, bring back jobs. But he's talking about "low-life leakers" instead of renegotiating NAFTA; Says the free press is "the enemy of the American People" instead of unveiling his infrastructure program. Name one good thing Trump has done. Good for the American people that is. Please answer with actual facts if answering this question. No BS.

I see a lot of real possible criticism of Trump, but it just seems kind of off the mark to say he has done nothing. Hate what he has done - fine, but to suggest he is not doing things kind of challenges one's gullibility.
1,2,6,7 = Untrue 5,9=True, 8/Yes but hires lobbyists as cabinet members. 3,10- Oh Meeting People! clap clap clap! 4-Mercury in water = good?
ptosis, What happened to the facts here. How can you say for ex. that #2 is not good for the people? BTW, I we just go rid of ACA and left on the preexisting condition as a single law. What would we be missing?
Ptosis. Please you were the one that insisted facts and no BS. I see no citing of facts in this comment. Please do not insist we do it and then fall short through a venomous hate. No matter in the long run, you know I really respect you and value you
Thanks Eric, hard to do in comments with only 250 characters! That's why moving to forums more and more. Voted Ken as BA due to well thought out answer that pretty much won the entire debate.
Ptosis, perhaps my adult children and I will never agree. But we agree to love. You are awesome picked a great "best". I beg of thee to keep making me grow. Make me happy - you do. Do not change you.
I appreciate that, sometimes just stating the facts as best you understand them is the best argument to be made. Depending on one's perspective this could have been answered many different ways.
This is a good answer, but - some of these things fall into the 'not so good' category such as protect coal jobs instead of the environment it ruins. Every president meets with every side & he gets credit? The dangerous immigration EO...
Oftentimes, politicians put good-sounding titles on Bills and such that mean the opposite of what they appear to be about... seems a lot of coal miners were going to lose their jobs, and now they won't.
You do realize that he has not done anything yet? He wrote hundreds of executive orders. But, he still has to get the House and Senate Approval and all of his executive orders MUST be reviewed by Congressional lawyers to make certain they are legal.
Wow Eleanore... An Executive Order does not get or need Congressional approval , hence the word executive. They CAN be reviewed, they CAN be challenged in court, but in general they go into effect as soon as they are signed. 99 out of 100 times.
To tell the truth this is a bit scary. Congress has to approve the President telling the executive branch what to do? There are formal EOs but there are also orders telling his cabinet to sit down and give an opinion. Approval?
"Going to" and "did" are two different things. Remember the Obama Peace Prize for wishful thinking?. It's so secret that even Trump has no idea what he's doing.
Mike when you are right, I have to agree with you. BTW, do you agree that spying on the WH and leaking classified information to the media is also wrong?
I agree Mike Russo
Well Daniel, I am looking for some comparative first 30. Holy crap Batman it really has been only 30 days? And some complain about not getting it done yet. Hell an employee is probationary for at least 90. Incredible to attack his record in less than
Eric - It's been amazing that so many people have already handed in the Worst President Ever Award isn't it? I would say the same of people handing out the Best President Ever Award to be fair but it seems that those who aren't in blind hatred of thi
Great answer. I posed this Q as a dig for those who think Trump can do no wrong, and done everything correctly. Nice to have reasonable answers. Thank you again.
I wonder what would happen if folk judged our host P. the same. Wonderful mind. Trapped by hate. Facts are not acceptable, lest they serve the outed king.
Thanks Eric! But no fan of Obamination. Used to call him Cracker IncogNegro
Trump can't do anything that requires money until it is funded by congress and they are not going to start approving a new budget until at least April. If it isn't blocked by gridlock. Right now, it is all smoke and mirrors. There is a difference
Actually many things were already funded, like 15 Billion which had years ago been approved for the Wall, while other things can be defunded, like Sanctuary Cities.
Most definitely POTUS has a ton of money that BHO did not spend by not enforcing some laws. Did you know that POTUS is far behind BHO in the rate of deportation? Money will not really be an issue until infrastructure spending.
they are not ILLEGAL just undocumented. Illegal is committing a CRIME! Not undocumentation.
Is that sarcasm? Because I'm pretty sure that's just a PC way to say the same thing.
I do not understand this concept of someone illegally entering the country as not committing illegal activity - which by definition means they are a criminal. Law abiding folks do not engage in ongoing criminal conduct. And also the aider and abetter
I have always like Thompson/Reuters. This was a good reporting article. (disclaimer I sort of worked for them - via La Prensa out of Mex. City}
Oh for sure we have issues. I think these reflect proximity to Iron and other cheaper stuff. Not Jobs.
What an interesting perspective. What country are you from? Using force to throw out people who have no right to be here? What? Should we pay them to leave and drive them to the border in a limo? We are a republic - we elect officials to vote.
I'm from a country from which things are going pretty much down hill. So I understand the situation. Where the cm mysteriously dies and then two people of the same party fight to become cm. And where people are more bothered about their religious sen
"religious" is always a bad mix with governance. So is total lack of higher morality and spirituality. This notion of a nation of laws and not of man is critical. The coup does not change the legislative branch. Charismatic leaders? Bridled by law?
"The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People! -" - is what he tweeted so I guess Al Jazeera, RT, Reuters & AP are A-OK.
Very enriching piece I feel Trump is for Trump.
As a democrat speak from the heart.
We need to stick with are constitutional rights and values.
Thank you kindly,

The question was: "Name one good thing Trump has done" your answer is self evident that you can not name one good thing. Bravo. I rest my case. As far as sedition/ treason, Trump is the #1 evil-doer by failing to carry out the obligations of POTUS
That is one good thing, You don't have a case, and then you want people to answer your ? with fact, but then you make a factless, ambiguous, and vague stm about Trump. "Trump is the #1 evil-doer by failing to carry out the obligations of POTUS
For the record, the question was "is this what Trump voters wanted". Just keepin it real.
Whoa P. that was not the question. That was a sidebar.
The answer is that he has kept you engaged. Better than the last 8.
From the question,"Name one good thing Trump has done"
Sorry this sure looked like someone wanting to get a million hits -- even SEO dominated.
Peter - would it be OK for you to give us from what roots you come. Perhaps within it we may find more truth to your words and understand. But I understand if you will not.
Peter, you should write a hub, seriously.
Well, I would like to see what u think about this hub I just wrote within since the hub I wrote was over 1 year ago https://hubpages.com/entertainment/My-idea-of-an-a... :)
Peter come on - who are you? No hubs? Broken seemingly Eastern English - give us a break and not hide. Who are you?
I think you should own smart stuff like your write.
Well, Eastern English, this can be a clue, right? :)
So you are just someone who we should think of as no one?
Ha ha, let say I like to be mysterious :D Oh and this is a hub I wrote long ago see if u like it :D https://hubpages.com/relationships/My-idea-for-a-s...
Hi Peter, I glazed over your 2 links. I'm not a big fan of fiction so I'm the wrg person to ask. sorry
People are NOT ILLEGAL, CRIMES are . They are humans and just Undocumented. GEEZ they are people too!
Very good point but you take it too far. A trespasser is not an illegal person -- just illegally where they are.
