JayADee: Has Trump done anything positive aside from have a nice chat with the Canadian and British PMs and have a few meetings with some large businesss?


Well - he just 'created' a non-existent attack in Sweden to justify his presidency.

He needs to step out of campaign mode and into being President. This may remove the catalyst to some of his gaffs, he also needs to fire some of his advisers whom I think are setting him up.



You think one can teach old dogs new tricks? He also happens to need a new personality to accomplish what you advised.

You are right and that's a risk of voting in a non politician.

I think it's worth remembering that more than a few Presidents have probably been elected and then done absolutely nothing but appear in photos shaking hands etc for 6 months afterwards.

 

Trump's unusual in POTUS terms in that he wants to DO things all the time. Whether they are good things, bad things or indifferent things, many of the POTUSes I can recall did not 'do' things every week that we heard about. They did things (or at least, took credit for doing them) infrequently on the whole.

 

You could of course argue that he could have done the same - not much apart from glad-handing - and that might have been better. However, he would not be who he is if he did that and nor would he be the person that those who did vote for him, voted for. Indeed, the news would now be full of stories about how he promised to do XYZ and has done nothing....!

Yep, he is doing what he said he would do, kinda rare for a politician.

I would be grateful if you did. Your responses are nonsense and do not further the discussion - any discussion - at all.

Thanks for finding an example of what I have been saying, Quoting the self appointed leader of the opposition does not make it so. Example of bad reporting and "click bait" over reaction.
