I'm going to ask an honest question, with zero sarcasm, zero mocking and total respect. I also ask any liberals to do the same, if only just for this thread.
Do you think Trump is a better president than Obama? If so, please state why. There will be no rebuttals from me, though I may ask you to elaborate on some points. I just want a clear and concise answer, for which ...[text shortened]... most respectful way possible, and I'm sincere when I say I won't hold against you anything you say.
1. Foreign policy
a. Trump has stopped Rocket man from playing with his toys in the Pacific and averted war doing it.
b. Trump has not started a war abroad. Something not done for decades.
c. Trump did not release terrorists to go back into the world to rejoin the terrorists for one US POW that went native and seemingly helped the Taliban.
d. Trump did not give Iran billions of dollars to continue to wreak havoc in the Middle East and continue their WMD programs. I don't care if it was their money. If someone commits a heinous crime in the US, they often lose their assets as well.
e. Trump recognizes China as a threat and recognizes their unfair trade practices and has the gonads to challenge them on it. Granted, he may lose as we seem to be paying a price for it economically right now.
f. Trump did a better job helping to clear out ISIS out of Syria and Iraq instead of drawing imaginary red lines in the sand while overseeing mass genocide and immigration from the region that has overwhelmed Europe.
a. Trump does not race bait. He NEVER mentions race but is only accused of being a racist based upon his perceived lack of condemnation regarding racists, even though he has repeatedly condemned racists in the past.
b. Trump does not feed into the notion that law enforcement is racist as innocent white policemen are murdered all across the country, while then refusing to say the words "Islamic terrorism" with the premise it might cause people to harm innocent Muslims.
c. That leads me to Trump not feeding into PC. He makes me cringe at times and I don't always agree with what he says or the way he goes about it, but he has been at war with the PC Nazis his entire term and I love it! In a world where it is PC to pretend to decapitate the President of the US as humorous and not PC to call a man or a woman a man or a woman because it is offensive and hateful, it was much needed.
d. Trump refused to participate in the Paris Accord. I bet France wishes they didn't as well. And it has precious little to do with me disagreeing with the science of global warming, because the scientists that agree with global warming agree that the Paris Accord was nothing short of a band aid on a cancer just to make us feel better about ourselves, while harming the economy. And no, taxes don't lower carbon emissions. If you want my support and taxes, then build nuclear reactors. Until then, no big pots of money top lay with like Social Security that governments rob from.
e. I would say that Trump lowered taxes, but then, Obama did as well when he reinstituted the "W" tax cuts to help jump start the economy.
f. Trump did lower regulations that further helped jump start the economy, an economy with the lowest unemployment in a very long time.
g. Trump says he wants to build a wall and secure the border. We see the drug cartels in South American and Central America rule and reign over governments there, and I think they do as well here, which is why I don't think the wall will ever get built. I'm not even sure that Trump was serious about it or if he was just smart enough to know that saying such things was the key to victory, but at least we get to hear the words.
