Here are a few things that Trump has done:

He Appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and more than 75 other constitutionally sound federal judges, 30 of which are serving.

Reinstated an expanded Mexico City Policy blocking foreign aid from being used for abortions.

He cracked down on illegal immigration and “sanctuary cities.” As Attorney General Jeff Sessions put it: “The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our laws, and the catch and release policies of the past are over.”

He issued an order killing two federal regulations for every new one. In actuality, 16 were cut for every new one in his first year, saving billions.

He engineered a historic tax cut that save money for more than 80 percent of American households.

He withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, ending the threat of U.S. governance by international bureaucrats.

He reversed onerous Obama environmental rules which had given the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ham-handed authority to destroy the coal industry and revoke landowners’ rights.

He Kick-started America’s energy sector by curtailing regulations, facilitating the Keystone XL Pipeline and opening up federal areas to oil and gas exploration.

He lead an economic and stock market BOOM, lowering unemployment and brought manufacturing jobs back to America from overseas.

He rebuilt the nation’s military, destroyed ISIS and faced down North Korea’s “Rocket Man.”

He Issued an order enforcing First Amendment protections for religious liberty.

Hes cracked down on sex trafficking!!!! President Trump signed a law allowing states to move against sex-ad Internet sites, and the Justice Department on April 6 seized and shut down Backpage.com, which carried ads for prostitution, including trafficked children. He continues to focus majority of his efforts to stop human trafficking more than any other president in history!

He's overhauled the mismanaged Veterans Administration and giving veterans more health care choices.

He replaced Obamacare incrementally, beginning with a repeal of the individual mandate.

He imposed sanctions on Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship and revised Obama’s deals with communist Cuba.

He helped recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and repairing damage that Obama did to the U.S.-Israel relationship.

He worked with Central American nations to crack down on MS-13 gangs.

OK, let’s stop here, though it only scratches the surface.

This is a pathetic list. No wonder he couldn’t come up with a rationale for a second term when asked.

Good, he did his job, now it's the next guy's turn.

Some of your glorifications are inflated.

Some of his accomplishments are negative.

The tax cut for instance, if he hadn't passed that, I could let you have him.

Think what Democrat would have done, even Hillary, we'd be in such a boom.

Instead we have this chincy one that you're going to pour in ten-trillion dollars to watch it fall apart outdated.

Not a very impressive list, but you sir, Daqueef, are impressive in putting this list together.

Now try to compile this list:

*They took a surplus and booming economy, cut taxes and said, "We're going to borrow it." Handed over an economic crisis and then said, "No more borrowing, no raising revenue, no more stimulus, "Failed Stimulus!" No education, no minimum wage, any in a timely manner, how are you going to pay for Obamacare? Repeal Obamacare and have them nothing. Let's cut taxes for the rich again so we can crash and they can choke up and have it impossible. Let's cheat for our SCOTUS. Shut down the Government. Trump's economy. (a rev-ed up piston breaking its shaft) Impeach Trump. Bankrupt the Country. Slap Ten-Trillion and only give Obama $250."

And then just when we expected Captain Sullenberger to execute a smooth forced water landing with all or nearly all souls aboard saved from COVID-19, instead we got Captain Joseph Hazelwood who crashed the country on the rocks, spilling all the virus all over the place and doing nothing about it and refusing to take responsibility.

Let's add to the list

Began buildingv a wall. I think we have at least 200 miles of wall right now?

He stopped catch and release

Corrected trade irregularities with China so the USA wasn't getting ripped off

No new wars, working to end existing conflicts

Prison reform

Financing traditionally Black colleges

Right to try for terminally ill patients who don't want to wait on the FDA

Made sure US and even other countries had adequate equipment to stop Covid

Put a travel ban on China to stop the virus, as China kept allowing their ppl to go to the US..even though they restricted their own people from travelling within China.


And many other good things

I wouldn't compare Mrs. Clinton to Captain Sullenberger, but think what a difference if our President was always seen with a mask.

There aren't no rocks in New York City are you saying he should have made for Central Park?

Trump is not unexpected.

I wonder what Sullenberger's score is?

Sullenberger had to go against his instincts.

Other than his tax cut I can't give him a, "Good job."

I'd say he was something else, but a pig headed Republican who for the second time had to go the route of straining the lending pool for a lending bubble.

Hillary?
Where does Hillary figure into this or are you trolling?
Yeah, I think that's it.

The COVID response in USA is the worst on record.

USA vs WORLD.jpg

And I am sick of hearing about how we could not do as South Korea did because we taught them how to respond to pandemics wy back in the 1950's during the last Polio scare.
Our population size has nothing to do with it whatsoever so any excuses you may wish to make in that direction are null and void.
South Korea is the gold standard, they immediately pulled the trigger on lockdowns, national testing for everyone, and they did not game the system on PPE, meds, resources, budgets and hospital capacity.

They acted in a coordinated manner and immediately isolated infected persons with the full force of public health law.
And that is why they are merely responding to small local flareups now while most nations are barring US travel to their countries because we cannot be trusted.

Trump is Captain Hazelwood, not Hillary.
And the fact is, HAD Trump done the right thing, Democrats could toss their hopes of winning right into the trash.
HAD Trump BEEN like Sully, INSTEAD of acting like Hazelwood, he'd coast to reelection.

Instead, he has politicized this to the point where irrational idiots are attacking people who wear masks or who dare to ask them to put theirs on.

Ill take care of them mask.jpg

He would still be building a lending bubble with a strain on the lending pool and his tax cut and hopefully that would be enough.

Biden has the astrology to beat Trump and Trump has the New Moon advantage (Oct 16, 19:32:10 Greenwich) to fight back.

Two signs indicate upset of the ruling Party.

he raw dogged a porn star, turned our country into a laughingstock to the extent that you can't even go to a London pub without having to talk about it, and then he mismanaged a pandemic so badly that we're basically flirting with a depression.

what's not to like?

it's basically laugh or cry now, and he's also doing everything he can to force the schools open.

yee haw

No, it is sometimes how I express contempt for people whose debate skills I do not take seriously.
And still, despite your ad hominem in response, you cannot dispute the fact that all Trump had to do was take the COVID pandemic seriously right from the beginning and use a superhero/knight in shining armor script (seeing as how he likes reality scripting nearly everything) and dispense with his emnity for Democrats long enough for his all hands on deck response to make a difference, and he could have ridden that all the way to November.

In fact, once the COVID numbers TRULY DID begin to level off in a significant way like other countries, he could have even RESUMED his attacks on Democrats.

Hypothetical example - - one has to imagine him yelling this at a rally, yes...a rally because rallies would again be okay! :

"I made the economy of this country ROAR! And nothing the Democrats could do was ever able to stop it! In fact, not even a pandemic could stop it, because we are now back together making America great again. No Democrat could fight this the way I did!"

The election would have been a foregone conclusion.
And all you have as a comeback is to mock the fact that I put up a couple of very creepy cartoon interpretations of current events.

You ain't got nothin, you ain't got DICK, so I wonder why you even bother to crawl out of bed in the morning.
