  • Trump’s list: 289 accomplishments

    I expect "the usual suspects" to quibble on the qualitative aspects of the items here, but the claim that Trump "hasn't accomplished anything" would appear to be either gross lying or gross ignorance.

    Imagine how much more he could accomplish if the Democrats stopped betraying the American people.

        Correction, Federal taxpayer funding. They can still get all the private and other source funding they successfully solicit.

          RW media talking point. They all repeat it, then you do. Most of Trump's accomplishments have a negative affect on America and her strength in the world.

                  The only promises I cared about was ending US involvement in Syria, sending in Feds to high crime areas, repealing Obamacare, building the wall, tackling illegal immigration, deregulation, shrinking government, reducing deficit, term limits. So for me he has only delivered on one meaningful promise thus far, deregulation.

                      POTUS is not a dictator.
                      Most of your list is what Congress would have to pass legislation on that he could sign.

                        Don't get me wrong, I don't expect the core of our foreign or domestic policy to ever change. But, the things I detailed were all promises he made. So that's what I'm going off of and actually most of it he could have done. The withdrawal from Syria does not require congress. He had the withdrawal set and then caved to the MSM and establishment to stay. He can ramp up deportations. Again, he had the power to do that this weekend with the ICE raids but chose not to. Instead, he'd rather strike a deal with democrats who don't give a damn about our border security. The time for Trump to take matters into his own hands has passed. Each day that goes by without real security and significant deportations only helps democrats and hurts Americans. So I have to say his approach has been too soft and thus unsatisfactory.

                        Term limits, I will admit is unrealistic, I said that when he was elected. But, why make promises you can't keep? Reducing the deficit was realistic. His proposed budget didn't even do so. He didn't even try to fight for it. A lot more deregulation can be done by executive order. He also has the power to send in the Feds to high crime areas, he hasn't done it.

                        Sure, Trump has some accomplishments under his belt. But, were they game changers? Did he operate as an outsider who wanted to defeat the establishment? Did he bring us back to our old ways of small federal government? Has he done anything revolutionary? No. Thus far it has been the same big government policies with a very slight right-wing spin. That is when separating the rhetoric from actual action. Trump talks like a far right lunatic, but operates barely right of center imho.

                            Also, while it was a promise he made and didn't keep, I will not pin the failure of repealing Obamacare on Trump. But, since this is something we're stuck with, I would have liked to see Trump do something that the democrats can't easily reverse once they're back in office. For example, it is a given that taxes are going back up. However, if he had moved us to a new tax system (and abolish the IRS), maybe that wouldn't have been so easy to do.

                            Unrealistic? Only so, because most Americans have such low standards for our Presidents now.
