    And can you name me one modern politician that isn’t a con-man? Trump has delivered on almost all of his campaign promises. More so than any president in modern history. So just what do you expect? Perfection? Ain’t gonna happen!

    Trump told us he wasn't a politician.

    I do not expect "perfection". I would be happy with 50%. I voted for Trump for 3 reasons: Repeal obamacare, a tax cut and build the wall. He did get us a tax cut. But he was an epic failure on obamacare and an epic failure on building the wall. So far, his success ratio is 33%. In other words, he is a LOSER! Baseball teams fire the manager for a better win percentage than Trump has.

    Judge appointments will have a long term impact on this nation. He's done well. You're giving up too quickly on border security. As far as ObamaCare, that is definitely a wash. A shame.

    When he was running for the job, somebody should have told him not to promise things that take Congress to deliver. It would have been much better had he simply stressed his desire to get those things done, providing Congress stands with him and America. As you states, though; he isn't a politician.

    The Affordable Care Act will lose its teeth in 2019, as the penalty for not buying insurance disappears – leaving the health care law’s future as murky as ever.
    .....
    But ObamaCare now faces a new legal threat, following a federal court ruling this month declaring the health care law unconstitutional – and creating a new element of uncertainty.
    Getting rid of the mandate and a federal judge ruling the law unconstitutional looks pretty much like Trump may have also fulfilled this promise.

    It'd be good if the rest of the program is swept up and tossed into the trash. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

    Whoooa! The Obamacare failure was on congress. Specifically John McCain. So please explain to me just exactly how that fiasco was Trumps fault.

    And the wall has to be funded by congress. Trump is not ‘king’. He simply cannot fund the wall on his own. Our own voters decide who gets elected to congress and those congressmen (both parties) have consistently blocked immigration reform and border security. Trump has done everything he could to produce results but the drones in congress (the drones you and I elected) have stopped him at every turn. His last card is a declaration of emergency but we all know that will be blocked in the 9th circuit court. So you call Trump a loser. Why don’t you explain to us just exactly how you could have unilaterally repealed Obamacare and built the wall............. I’m waiting............

    As most of you know I voted for Trump for two reasons. Federal judge appointments, especially the supreme court, and he wasn't the beast. I considered him a stop gap measure at best, and at worst? Well, we shall see. Beyond the tax breaks, military spending, and easing of federal regulation ( All positives ) I see mostly chaos with no rhyme or reason and a swamp that is still very much filled with alligators and snails.

    Him caving in to the Wicked Witch of the North and Tumor was a huge mistake. He gave up his leverage and empowered the left. In three weeks he will come away with less then half of what he asked, if anything at all.

    His negotiating with the pork chop in NK only empowered the fat kid and put him as an equal on the world stage. On top of that, nothing has changed on the peninsula. He is still producing fissile materiel and developing his rockets while he got what he wanted. We stopped war games with the south. Pelosi and Kim got the better of the deal it would seem.



    At the end of the day, he is what I thought he would be. A thumb in the dyke, nothing better, and hopefully, nothing worse.

    If there is a grand plan to all of this I need to see it, because in two years it will be too late.

    I don't disagree that congress, in particular the Republicans, are culpable in this fiasco. They had control of both houses and the presidency for two years and got only a tax bill done. They should be held responsible come 2020 for their failures, of which, there are many.

    Trumps campaign rhetoric of building a wall and repealing Oblundercare was a falsehood from the get go. He needed congress and got no help. However, if he was politically savvy, he would have anticipated that fact. He leaned to heavily on his supposed ability to make a deal, there is no deal to be made with the socialists. especially now that he gave up his leverage. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next three weeks.
