That almost 3% GDP is looking good. He has signed some a few new bills regarding Vets. Jobs are up. Manufacturing is up. Companies are coming back from overseas. I could go on and on but you do not care because you hate. That is your right. He protects that.

The vast majority of which did not own slaves and were not fighting for slaves one way or the other. Every one needs to pull their heads out of their butts and learn some history before spouting off about something they don't understand.
The American Civil War was fought in the United States from 1861 to 1865. The result of a long-standing controversy over slavery and states' rights, war broke out in April 1861, when Confederates attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina, shortly after Abraham Lincoln was elected. The nationalists of the Union proclaimed loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. They faced secessionists of the Confederate States of America advocating states’ rights to perpetual slavery and its expansion in the Americas.
Among the 34 U.S. states in February 1861, seven Southern slave states individually declared their secession from the U.S. to form the Confederate States of America.
