    Trump is 2 for 2 already before even taking office - how impressed are you so far?

    With Obama announcing today he was abandoning TPP and mere days ago both the Canadian and Mexican president agreed to renegotiate NAFTA, Trump is already making good on campaign promises.  And he's not even in office.  Plus the Phiilpines, Russia, and other countries who stood against America while Obama was in office all have said they will work with Trump.  Is everyone ready to give the man a chance?  Imagine what he will do once he's actually sworn in.

    Another issue is Trump essentially ending a lot of the world's wars by bringing our soldiers home.
    Clinton created the Middle East chaos by assuming dictators equal bad, take out dictators, democracy blooms. In Egypt, removing Morsi resulted in the Muslim Brotherhood (Islamic terrorist group) getting elected to power, since they were the best organized. Libya and Yemen are still in chaos, Yemen's so bad the Saudis are paying American military contractor to just build a 800 mile wall around that nation to keep out terrorists and refugees. (So who says America can't build a wall!) And they are paying for a similar wall of 700 miles along their Iraqi border to keep out ISIS and refugees.
    Clinton created ISIS by arming Islamic fundamentalist militias who promised to take out Assad, not caring that they used our weapons to carve out a theocratic state, too. And she ignored the fact that Russia has a massive naval base in Syria on the Mediterranean they'd fight to protect. She created the Syrian civil war by arming one side not caring that Russia would protect the incumbent for its own benefit. Trump stops arming ISIS, they weaken, and Syria as a literal source of conflict with Russia ends, too.
    Bringing our soldiers out of Iraq, Afghanistan and a dozen other nations reduces those costs and ends the sacrificing of American lives and treasure to "nation-build" nations that don't want to follow our model or hate us despite our protection of them (South Korea, Japan, Germany).

    I'm impressed. It's amazing how everybody is tripping over each other to get on this man's good side.  They don't want to be put on the enemy list.

    Omarosa Manigault : “Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump,” she says. “It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, whoever disagreed, whoever challenged him — it is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”

      That's a good call - doubtful that Trump will forgive and forget

      Forgive and forget? He needn't forgive or forget, that's what Omarosa means, he's avenged them by winning the election, the ultimate revenge was to do nothing but become their boss!  Now "they're fired" or will be.  lol

    Not at all impressed... won't be until he does something. 
    The most impressive thing I saw so far was an Fox interview of speaker Ryan.  He was smiling like a kid in the candy store talking about all the changes they could finally make, Bills and amendments they had worked out for the past few years that either sat on Harry Reid's desk when he controlled the Senate, or remain shelved because there was no hope they would get past Obama.
    So that was great news, to know that the Republicans are ready to get to work immediately and already have the answers in hand to make a lot of the changes Trump promised or alluded to.

    Another great thing I learned is that many of the worst changes we have seen, from open borders, to funding for schools threatened if they didn't comply to Obama's demands can all be undone because they weren't put through Congress, but instead done by Executive Order... so much of the recent damage and recklessness can be undone almost as soon as he is sworn into office.
