Trump promised a new Healthcare Plan with "much better coverage at a tiny fraction of the cost." He failed.
He promised a $1 Trillion Dollar Infrastructure Plan that would create millions of American jobs. He failed.
He promised a 30' high concrete wall the entire length of our Southern Border that Mexico would pay for. But the check didn't come and the wall isn't built.
He promised to cut our National Debt, but instead he's on pace to add over $7 Trillion Dollars to our National Debt in just one term.
Trump said he wouldn't have time to play golf if elected, because he'd be too busy working. But in reality, Trump has spend 144 years worth of Presidential salary playing golf and visiting Trump properties, with all that tax payer money ending up in his own pockets.
He promised to revitalize the Coal Industry and create more jobs than ever. But since he took office, over 70% of the largest Coal companies have filed for Bankruptcy and closed down.
He promised his tariffs would bring back the American Steel Industry. but instead tens of thousand of steel workers have lost their jobs and plants have been closed down all over the country. US Steel's stock price is down 90%.
He promised a giant "Middle Class" tax cut, but instead borrowed $1.5 Trillion dollars and took $560 Million Dollars out of Medicare and then gave 83% of that money to Corporations, the wealthiest 1500 families in America, Real Estate Developers and the owners of private planes.
Do you think it was just a coincidence that Trump owns a Corporation, has one of the 1500 wealthiest families in America, is a Real Estate Developer and owns a private plane?
So what did the middle class get out of Trumps "Middle Class" tax cut?
The Bill for $1.5 Trillion Dollars, plus Interest and a future cut in their Medicare that they already paid for.
And as an added bonus, the tax cuts of the corporations, the wealthy, the Real Estate Developers and the owners of private planes is permanent through 2025, only the middle class can have their taxes raised to pay for the covid-19 relief package.
As with every other Republican Administration in the modern era of American politics, the Trump Administration will rule over a Recession and run up our National Debt. Remember, only Democratic Administrations in the modern era have had Balanced Budgets, cut the annual Deficit and had a Government Surplus.
Basic Economics shows us that like most Republican Administrations, under the Trump Administration, Republican policies do you no good unless you make over $306,000.00 a year.
If you make less than $306,000.00 a year, you're either a Democrat or just a Useful Idiot.
"But in reality, Trump has spend 144 years worth of Presidential salary playing golf and visiting Trump properties, with all that tax payer money ending up in his own pockets."
Reality? Where is the "reality" that every dime spent by the SS on a golf course goes into Trump's pocket instead of the pockets of the workers there? Are you pretending that there are no costs to running a golf course or hotel in order to inflate numbers beyond what any thinking person could accept?
I assume you were looking for a comparison between Obama and President Trump. (he did, he did that).

-Unemployment is actually the highest since the Great Depression as Trump failed to push for social distancing measure that caused the economy to shutdown.
-Median Household income that you quote is overestimated by Trump's source (link: https://www.factcheck.org/2019/11/trump … 000-boast/)
-Throw out the next four unemployment stats since you're not factoring in where Obama/Biden left them and giving all the credit to Trump, which we've discussed in other threads. Add to that that these are no longer accurate with Trump's mishandling of Coronavirus.
-4 million thrown off food stamps is much different than lifted off. Continues to throw people off food stamps as unemployment rises. That's some humanity to boast about.
-Signed the biggest tax cut in US history is a lie (https://www.factcheck.org/2017/11/large … t-history/)
-Assassinated Soleimani, a member of a foreign government, causing Iran to retaliate against US forces, then lied about the damage those retaliations cause to our soldiers.
-Not sure you should brag about tariffs since they are paid by US citizens, adding an estimated $2,000/year in costs to middle class families and have decimated the agricultural industry in the midwest. Definitely not bragging points.
-Adding military spending, now our yearly deficits are above 1 trillion dollars since cuts were not made other places.
-Partially defunding Planned Parenthood is a hit to woman's health, not sure I'd brag about that either.
-In Obama's first three years in office, Obama/Biden reduced violent crime 15.1%. In the first 2.5 years under Trump, violent crime reduced 6.6%, using your FBI stats. I'll let you decide who was better after being elected.
Just not bored enough to play this game. I will stick with my list. And my one vote. You have pretty much the same a list and a vote... Trump 2020
I ordered these for you instead. Seems more appropriate if you're going to still go full traitor.
I would not think Russia would be happy with another four years of Trump.

I must say, that is a perfect slogan to describe the mindset of a good many Trumpers. What's truly important to them. Good Job.
I agree I can see in my own community, Republicans are, fired up to make sure lots of tears are shed on Nov 3. Now, what's truly important to a Trump voter might be hard to predict, due to individuality.
I assume people vote for a candidate whose policies, character, and actions reflect their values.
I think your assumption is shared by many. However, in my view over time it has become very hard to choose a president. I felt Hillary was of poor character, and I found her actions throughout her political career appalling, and yes one's actions in some incidences do reflect her values. I found her policies old and offered nothing new, she did little campaigning and gave the impression she did not need too, perhaps feeling she just had the presidency coming to her.
Trump had a history of questionable poor morals, and some of his business actions were to benefit him and him alone. His agenda was one I appreciated.
I am not sure how to say this without perhaps just saying it. You have your opinion, and I can see you totally are ready to defend it as the last word. However, there are many facets to the issue of how one might go about choosing a person to be president.
I have my opinion, we have a different thought process on what is more important in a president when choosing between two candidates that have baggage.

Gas prices are soaring as usual under Republican leadership. This will hurt middle and lower classes more than it does those who got the lions' share of the tax cuts. Not only do we have to repay the Chinese for the money we borrowed , we now have to pay higher prices for fuel. I hope those wanted...

If you think this is normal or helps promote the safety and efficient function of our government, please tell us how exactly? This is just another one of the many reasons to get someone with some government experience back into the role of commander-in-chief.
