So what has Trump done right (or well even)

Post by ed » Mon Feb 04, 2019 1:03 pm

I understand that stylewise the guy is a disaster in many (most) cases. Though his style might actually work well with loons like kim chee un, the Norkian guy. But I don't care about that right now.

What has be done well? What has he achieved? The flip side, of course, is what has he promised and not addressed.
  • I think that the aggressive stand he has taken to the metric lovers in the EU re. paying their share is good.
    I think standing up to the russkis is good as is the stand he has taken in Venezuela
    I concur with his position on the border wall and he gets points for actually following up on a campaign promise.
    We actually seem to be talking to NK. A couple of years ago I would have bet that their stupid cabbage eating country would have been glass by now. Points for that

All of ed's points are seriously debatable (and not just from a "lefty" point of view), but I can think of two undeniable good things about Trump.

1) He's not Hitler. Well not really.
2) He makes LIBBERULz shit their pants.

The idea that America's best days are in the past and we are resigned to 1 or 2 percent growth is a shattered myth.

Is the inevitable collapse after the money runs out also a myth? :)

Much as I dislike the man, I do have to credit him for getting us the fuck out of Syria and not dragging us into any new military adventures.
