IS DONALD TRUMP USA's GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER? | InterNations

Despite media bias, Trump perhaps greatest president | Letters | bozemandailychronicle.com

"In truth, Mr. Trump is the best thing that has happened to the United States since Ronald Reagan was in office, and Reagan was the best president since Lincoln. Lincoln’s opponents used a pistol. The current president’s critics attempt to do him in with vindictiveness." --Thomas Ryan, award winning historian and Civil War author

"There’s George Washington. There’s Abraham Lincoln. And there’s Donald Trump. For such a time as this, America has rarely, if ever, seen a greater president. Of course, you’d never know it by reading this newspaper or its opinion page. You’d never know it by reading the big national press."--- Peter Arnone, Bozeman Daily Chronicle

Just a little summary of President Trump's achievements in his first year alone: Remarkable:

In one year, President Trump created 400,000 manufacturing jobs reaching a ten-year high. According to the Labor Department in July, American workers saw the largest increase in wages and benefits over the previous twelve months under President Trump, since September The Labor Department reported in early September Protected content American wages in the previous year grew at the fastest rate since Protected content . In April Protected content , unemployment in the USA fell to 3.9%, the lowest level since Protected content . Also in April the number of job openings hit a record high, actually exceeding the number of unemployed Americans looking for jobs. The Labor Department reported that the youth unemployment rate in July Protected content to its lowest level in 52 years. This includes Black, Hispanic and Asian unemployment rates hitting record lows.

President Trumps GDP grew by 4.1 percent in the second quarter of 2017 , marking the fastest economic expansion seen in a sitting Presidents first year in office.
President Trump appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanagh.
Revitalized Policy blocking foreign aid to Mexico City from being used for abortions.
Cracked down on illegal immigration and “sanctuary cities.” President Trump rescinded Obama’s abuse of Executive power giving amnesty to illegal Aliens to DACA.
Architect of historic tax cut that has back into the pockets of more than 80 percent of everyday, hardworking Americans.
Withdrew the USA from the Paris Climate Agreement, ending the threat of U.S. governance by international bureaucrats; and unequal funding ratio, the Lions share being expected from the USA.
Reversed burdensome Obama environmental policies that gave EPA autonomy over the energy sector and revoked landowners’ rights.
Improved the USA’s energy division by restricting regulations, enabling the Keystone XL Pipeline, and access to expansive BLM land to oil and natural gas exploration.
Rebuilt the USA’s depleted military while simultaneously destroying ISIS and brought North Korea aggression and posturing to an end.
Issued Executive Order enforcing First Amendment protections for religious freedom.
Revoked Obama’s Dept. of Education’s Executive order forcing public schools to allow gender-confused males access to girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.Cracked down on sex trafficking. President Trump signed a law allowing states to move against sex-ad Internet sites. Obama turned a blind eye.
Overhauled the mismanaged Veterans Administration, allowing veterans a more vast array of health care choices.Replaced Obamacare incrementally, beginning with a repeal of the individual mandate.
Imposed economic sanctions on Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship and revising Obama’s deals with Cuba.
Recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and repairing damage that Obama did to the USA -Israel relationship.
Worked with Central American nations to crack down on violent MS-13 gangs.

But in my opinion, as important as all these achievements, Trump has brought a spirit of can-do positivity to the nation. He has indeed 'made America great again' and has given us all more hope in the future. Just a check of the Consumer Confidence Index since Trump was elected shows this. So much higher than the disaster who immediately preceded him. United States Consumer Sentiment | 2019 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast. The guy has done exactly as he promised to restore America. How many politicians challenge us to be great, then follow up with their promises? Very very few. President Trump is one of them.

Presidents do not "create jobs."

You do realize this, correct?

Presidents can remove obstacles needed for job creation, and that is what Trump has done. 0bama placed MORE regulations, and that's why jobs under 0bummer tanked.

Sorry buddy, Trump is going to jail, and he's going to go down in history as the single worst, most corrupt, criminal, narcissistic egomaniac, idiotic president in all of American History.

The disgusting idiots who voted for this man will never live down this colossal mistake.

Honestly man, I kind of feel bad for you in away. I'm literally concerned for what will happen to your mental state when reality inevitably sets in.

You leftwingers start to believe your own cartoon version of Trump. Then get tripped up when reality doesn't match.

So by "a number" you mean 2?

And what makes you think they are "respected"? Respected by who? And for what?

Three sources up there, mate. I could have listen more, but why be repetitive?

That is just a blatant lie. Jobs improved under Obama. You guys will lie to peoples faces and expect them to believe. Its Orwellian.

Obama's Job creation numbers were actually the same or better than Trump's in every year of his presidency. So was GDP growth. The only difference is that Obama did it while reducing the deficit over the course of his presidency not increasing it.

Regulations don't do what you think they do. In fact, in some cases they can actually create jobs. More often than not they are jobs neutral. The ACA, by helping to insure an additional $24 million people caused huge job creation in the Medical field. Those jobs were very good, high paying jobs that cannot be shipped overseas.

0bummer doesn't get credit for the inevitable rebound from a deep recession he and his party created.

When you bounce a ball and it inevitably comes back up, you didn't "raise it up".

In fairness, in order for someone to lie they must have the mental capacity to grasp reality in the first place. In the words of the great George Castanza..."It's not a lie if you believe it."

IS DONALD TRUMP USA's GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER?
Presidents & Executive Politics Presidential Greatness survey, conducted by University of Houston professor Brandon Rottinghaus and Boise State University professor Justin S. Vaughn, polled current and recent members of the Presidents & Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association and asked them to grade each president.

Trump’s first time on the list knocked Buchanan out of last place.

Time Magazine is not a respected forum. It's filled with leftwing Soros-paid hacks.

In NOBODY's fantasy, could a president with 121 record high DOW closes be considered the 'worst president in history'. Please don't post absurdity.

Tread title: Is Trump the Greatest President Ever? A Number of Respected People Think So

Wonder if anybody has cross referenced the list of "respected people" that think Trump is the Greatest President ever with a list of people that think Trump should get the Nobel for Peace and Solomon deserves a Pulitzer for his horse crap. Bet you would see a good many of the same people.

I see, more Orwellian comments. At least you are consistent. Unbelievable but consistent.

Most respected? Are you serious? Just from a historical aspect one needs to be at LEAST 25 years from events for a fair historical analysis. Your OP just goes to show how ignorant you are of historical analysis.

No one on the planet is dumb enough to think that Trump is the greatest president ever.

Bwahahahahahahhahahaha!!!!! ROFL!!!!! Jesus man, just stop. This is hilarious!!!!

So Obama gets ZERO credit for turning around a massive recession handed to him by the previous Republican, but Trump gets 100% of the credit for maintaining the exact same identical growth he was left from Obama?!?!?!?!

Alright pal, I'm just going to go ahead and assume you are in fact Donald Trump using a fake handle and not waste my time. If you seriously think anybody in this forum is taking any of your nonsense seriously I got a bridge I'd like to sell you.

Name for me one regulation or "obstacle" Trump has removed, and the specific job it created.

People vote their wallets i.e. 401Ks. If anyone other than Biden gets the nom it's going be a Trump landslide. People can readily imagine Warren coming after their life savings.
