They didn't ask my opinion but I'll give it anyway. He's a charlatan and I don't believe a thing he says. I base my opinion on his past performance toward women.

Just saw this hit my news feed. Trump seems to be gaining steam this week and with a new immigration executive order on the way and his new budget proposal I think he'll probably continue to improve his ratings. I find these numbers really interesting since all of the MSM has been in panic mode and the lefty's are trying to get him impeached already. Quite a contrast to the daily soap opera narrative. People are finally seeing through the media spin.
Numbers from the Polls
Keeping Promises: 56% (88% of republicans!)
Happy w/accomplishments: 69%
Right track: 43% (hovering near recent highs)
Heard of the upcoming address: 41% (good job media... smh)
Shown above is a 1966 United States Note. Its existence proves, beyond question, that it is an absolute myth that no U.S. Notes were issued after the JFK assassination and refutes the theory that JFK was killed because he ordered U.S. Notes taken out of circulation and that, upon his death, his successor, Lyndon Johnson, reversed JFK's order. Final Judgment demonstrates that JFK's order had nothing to do with U.S. Notes whatsoever. Although the Kennedy family did oppose the Federal Reserve and ultimately intended to challenge that monopoly, the myth about “JFK's Greenbacks” has muddied the waters in the debate over the JFK conspiracy and it is a myth (in which so many have vested so much wishful thinking) that simply refuses to go away, the facts notwithstanding.forum.prisonplanet.com...
On November 28, 1961, President Kennedy halted sales of silver by the Treasury Department. Increasing demand for silver as an industrial metal had led to an increase in the market price of silver above the United States government's fixed price. This led to a decline in the government's excess silver reserves by over 80% during 1961.
Kennedy also called upon Congress to phase out silver certificates in favor of Federal Reserve notes which, according to the Associated Press at that time, were still backed by gold. Kennedy repeated his calls for Congress to act on several occasions, including his 1963 Economic Report, where he wrote: I again urge a revision in our silver policy to reflect the status of silver as a metal for which there is an expanding industrial demand. Except for its use in coins, silver serves no useful monetary function. In 1961, at my direction, sales of silver were suspended by the Secretary of the Treasury. As further steps, I recommend repeal of those Acts that oblige the Treasury to support the price of silver; and repeal of the special 50-percent tax on transfers of interest in silver and authorization for the Federal Reserve System to issue notes in denominations of $1, so as to make possible the gradual withdrawal of silver certificates from circulation and the use of the silver thus released for coinage purposes. I urge the Congress to take prompt action on these recommended changes.

It sounds like it was a pissing match. Basically he wanted silver in coins not dollars. He put a tax on silver transactions and stopped the treasury from selling the silver. And diverted the silver to coins.

He said that he was not going to govern as he campaigned.
What does that even mean?
I do not like Trump so I could shout "FAKE NEWS".
Is he making the right promises?
Where are his result to date?
OK But Obama had better rating at thiss stage.
