    I like a lot of his policies, and America is doing pretty well.

    Here's what I don't like about the man. My opinions are my own. I think he lacks empathy. I don't think he's ever cared about anyone but himself. I think he has troubling authoritarian tendencies. He's too impulsive. Incredibly thin-skinned, always trying to settle personal scores. He's weird, borderline insane. Like, if someone in your family or social circle behaved like him, you'd think he was losing it, right?

    I didn't like him going back to the 1990s. He has a history of hiring people and then refusing to pay. "Go ahead, sue me."

    At the same time .... what choice does he have. With the do-nothing congresses he has had to deal with, he has to do something to get them off their asses. Even the GOP House, with a willing POTUS waiting to sign into law more conservative legislation, were too busy worrying about Statesmanship and appearing acceptable to the media to get anything done.

    It is the beauty of Trump .... he really doesn’t care what the MSM thinks about him, and devotes a good bit, maybe too much energy towards nullifying their perpetual false narratives.

    Well maybe over the top statement but why not. Trump is nothing if he is not hyperbole incarnate.

    Mattis responded to reports that Mr. Trump called him "the world's most overrated general" during a meeting with Democrats earlier this week. Mattis joked that he felt like he had "achieved greatness," because he was "not just an overrated general, I am the greatest, the world's most overrated."

    "I earned my spurs on the battlefield ... Donald Trump earned his spurs in a letter from a doctor," Mattis joked at one point, in a reference to the medical deferment for bone spurs that kept Mr. Trump from serving in the military during the Vietnam War.

    But that is not policy so it doesn't matter. It only matters if you are a Democrat draft dodger or swift boat commander.

    It is not over the top when it is said that he is the only thing between socialism and capitalism as things stand right now.

    Long live Trump!

    Can’t argue with that. I’ll admit it’s a tad hard to listen to him. Grandiosity on steroids. It’s a tad hard to take him seriously as well. If not for his actual decisions, his actual positions, I’d never give him a second thought.

    The only upside of his pompous personality is when he uses it against the MSM.

    The main thing I like about Trump is that the left and the MSM hate him. He must be doing something right.

    Somebody should take hi tweeter away.

    I like that Trump stands up and fights back. Republicans always seem to back down when the left says they are doing something wrong. The Dems can act horribly but a Republican can't? I like how he supports the veterans, military and LEOs. I like that he is trying to correct our trade policies. I like my tax cuts. I like he is trying to fix the illegal immigration problem. I like his judicial choices. And I love that he sticks it to the MSM.

    I don't like that he tweets insults and such and that he seems to be thin-skinned.

    [QUOTE="dachsie, post: 1803409, member: 27308] he seems to be thin-skinned.
    biggest concern...

    he’s too easily baited into impulsive reactions and statements
