I approve of any politician who attempts to do what they say they are going to do. Bonus points awarded for actually succeeding at anything, and
additional points if they succeed in a hostile environment.
If we imagine what other politicians would do, faced with the level of raw opposition of what Trump experiences, we must at some point accept that in
most cases it would be laughable to imagine most of these other politicians lasting a week under such hostility. Most politicians get elected on
promises they never intend to keep. Most politicians go on a campaign trail and lie to the cheering crowds and then go back to their mansions and
government buildings and attempt to arrange sequences of legalized bribes, kick backs, and special interest benefits.
It doesn't make sense to judge a politician on ideology, because human beings in large numbers feel strongly about these issues both for and against.
So instead, a politician worthy of approval is one who tries to meet the demands of their constituents.
Conservative Supreme Court Justice
Upgrading Police Equipment to Paramilitary Levels
Opposition to Export Unfriendly Trade Agreements
Leaning Heavily on Generals for Strategy
International Opposition to Abortion
Upgrading Military Technology
Committing Resources to Space
Refusing to Cow-Tow to Hostile Foreign Leaders
Backing Coal, Oil, and Steel
Attempting to Bring Jobs and Factories to American Soil
Revising Immigration and Naturalization Policies
Not Abandoning People During Major Natural Disasters
These are just some examples. It isn't whether we agree that these are good or bad things. Most of us will find 1 or more things we do not like. But
the real question is whether Trump made promises like these, and whether he then attempted to follow through. I conclude that he did.
