Ok, here are some facts. It seems America is heading South what with Trump at the helm. If he doesn't turn his ship around soon, it would be a Titanic moment for America.


When Republicans imagined having a president of their own and control of Congress, they thought it would be a nonstop string of legislative achievements and improvements to government, bringing an inspiring new era of efficiency and effectiveness that showed Americans what the GOP was really capable of.

That is not quite how things are working out. Let’s take a brief tour around the news from just today, to see what is befalling the Trump administration:

The travel ban:

Federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland halted the second version of the administration’s travel ban, ruling that its discriminatory intent likely makes it unconstitutional and putting it on indefinite hold.

The Affordable Care Act repeal:

After a brutal Congressional Budget Office assessment showed that the Republican bill would cause 24 million Americans to lose their health coverage, House Speaker Paul Ryan now admits that the bill can’t pass the House in its current form.

The budget:

“President Trump on Thursday will unveil a budget plan that calls for a sharp increase in military spending and stark cuts across much of the rest of the government including the elimination of dozens of long-standing federal programs that assist the poor, fund scientific research and aid America’s allies abroad.”

That last one may not look like bad news — yet. But it’s going to produce both internal and external problems. It’s already causing consternation among Republicans on Capitol Hill, many of whom like to talk about limited government in the abstract but aren’t as happy about the kind of radical cuts the administration is suggesting, setting up a conflict between the White House and Congress. They’ll also find that the public, too, thinks “small government” sounds like a good idea until you start cutting the programs they depend on. And that’s before we even get to the Russia scandal.


There's more in the link below which includes:

Abysmal management.

A disastrous first legislative priority.

An impulsive, distracted president.


And another disaster waiting to happen that will have far reaching consequences on the environment is that while Trump promotes coal, other countries are turning to cheap sun power! In other words, he wants to provide jobs in the coal industry but kill twice the number due to pollution! Brilliant policy, what?

So, which way is America headed? I would say, the boondocks!

Titanic was a ship that sunk on her maiden voyage a hundred years ago.

Now we have a head of state that is stealthily guiding us around the icebergs, stering a coarse for magnetic north from which we can gain a clarity of thought which has been silently absent for the past hundred years.

I am on the bow, leaning forward. I know we will dine on fruit and nectar shortly.

Thank you, Mr. President.

Trump has pretty much continued the status quo
The people he has in his cabinet mirrors the same people in the last 5 presidential cabinets

It is actually working quite well as intended if you are one of the top 1%

I mean, it is human nature for people to work for their self interests
Trumps nature is to work for his wealthy friends

Mainstream media, doing their thing for their puppet masters to cause confusion, division, stress, chaotic behavior and unrest.

It's working yes?

Eta - how can one man make progress if half the nation citizens and aliens, want him dead or removed asap?

Its been a couple months and people expect USA to be great again lol.. one man can't change that, all American citizens make up the USA, they each individually play a part in helping Trump and eachother make progress, and make America a fine country it once was.

fair crack, you American people, did not exactly give him a car with four wheels to start off with did you.

I think he has done what he tried to set out to do.

He has met A LOT of resistance, been tough since he is not a thick skinned lying career politician.

If he does quit, it should throw up some flags.

America... your #%$*!%.

Sorry, but you just may be.


P.s..

I still blame Facebook.

Truth though, so much left wing democrat resistance, the constant MSM lies, the shrieking, the violent riotous protests, the maligning, and he's still doing what he said he would under constant ridicule.

Makes you wonder how anyone would want to do so much for people so incapable of wanting anything but chaos and anarchy.

Hell, if you US folk don't want him so much, send him down to Australia. We'd like a leader, not a puppet master.

So you want the American citizens to help Trump lead America to fall off the cliff?

A leader with backbone and a love of his Country.

So many people are getting freebies,

People are afraid the gravy train is over.

Hopefully, it is...

My friends in Michigan are elated by the automotive jobs that President Trump is bringing to the state.

Employees with retirement plans are pretty happy too.

Disaster? Only for those who aren't mentally capable of tapping into the growth that's occurring.

I understand what you are saying, but I disagree with the sentiment.
I think we are well on our way to winning this battle.

You have to admit, he has always had his heart in the right place, but the constant bombardment from all sides...

He has proven to me that the upsort average guy can take on the private school set in place applicants.. and win.

There was NO russian involvement, Trump just sees as i do, WTF are we always fighting with the Russians for....

Seriously ,WHY?

Because history tells us too ? This aint footy, where one side had a grudge against the other, but i can see how this may be americas mind set.

The world needs a good RESET.
