      First I think Trump is a mixed bag. Much better than the alternative, but I never was a Trump fan.

      He has appointed a significant amount of judges. This may have an impact in the future, but have not seen one yet.

      The economy is growing at a faster rate. Some will attribute it to tax cuts, deregulation, optimism or even increasing despite of trump. No doubt the ecobomy is growing.

      Wages are growing and companies are giving across the board bonuses.

      Inflation is being held in check. Don’t know if it will stay that way, but so far it is.

      The markets are higher.

      We have had mass shootings. I don’t think you can attribute this to any of his policies.

      We have not increased or as far as I can tell decreased military actions.

      Noe you can complain about the revolving door in the white house, the obssess need to want to respond by tweets. His narcissistic personality, how people are afraid that the world has no respect for him.

      When it comes down to it, what has changed since he has been in office

      I talked about the executive order in your previous thread. I think that was the first public sign of action to clean up corruption. The crux of Trump’s campaign was to drain the swamp. I guess you have to first believe there is such a thing as the deep state in order to get behind Trump on this. There have been too many illogical policies worldwide for me not to think there is a deep state.

      So from that standpoint I would say eliminating such an entrenched deep state would take considerable time, effort and conviction(balls). So far we can see the Saudi clean up, human trafficking arrests and now movement on North Korea. There are ongoing investigations into the Clinton Foundation and for public consumption we will see the IG report soon. I think we’ll see movement from Sessions after that report is released and there is now talk of a second special counsel regarding all of the “other” election scheming.

      For a lot of people what Trump accomplishes outside of draining the swamp is secondary. We all want prosperity, peace and a level playing field. Having some kind of powerful deep state limits and/or chooses for itself who/what benefits from policy decisions. If that doesn’t change, all else is theatre and has no real long term impact.

      The company I work for just announced an additional bonus for all employees. The stated reason for the bonus is from the results of Trumps tax cuts.

      Very happy for you John. More companies seem,to be doing this every day.

      I am happier that more people are employed and the a stage wage is increasing. Lets hope that keeps going.

      Someone down voted a good thing. It’s as if this is an anomaly.

      Weird…
