People I talk to are supportive of his tax cuts while some caution about the limits on deduction which can affect some people. His push to work on reforming immigration is a big topic. The democrats really lost public support because of their open borders support.

Trump's DACA comments even have the support of many legal immigrants who believes Trump is doing the right thing with getting congress to act on it and on the H-1B issues.

Trump is taking care of business and the only thing MSM can do is spread fake news about negative polls they collect from lazy moms sitting at home.
I am betting not many Hispanics at your workplace.

I'm sorry you have to work with people like that, it must be awful.

By the way, we're 1 year in and they've done very little about H-1B's. Orrin Hatch, a Republican, is one of the biggest supporters of the H-1B visa. Hatch heads the Republicans' High-Tech Task Force, and he wants to raise the # of H-1B visas while requiring employers to pinky promise that they first tried to hire an American worker.

The people I've encountered who openly support Trump also like to talk at me about conspiracy theories, secret underground moon bases, and other crazy crap.

Complete opposite experience for me.

Nearly every single Trump voter I know, and I know a fair amount of Trump voters from Ohio (where I grew up), regrets their vote.

And the ones that don't openly regret it, are not openly supporting him.

A liberal coworker posted this on Facebook last night:



"Descriptions of Donald Trump, from:

- Thomas Barrack Jr, Trump's friend: “He’s not only crazy, he’s stupid.”
- Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: "He's a ****ing moron."
- Most every member of the senior staff on repeated occasions, he's "like a child."
- Rupert Murdoch: "What a ****ing moron."
- Steve Bannon: he's lost his mind
- Attorney Gary Cohn: he's dumb as ****.
- National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster: a hopeless idiot

MAGA."

people will say that Trump may be crazy but itsy kind of crazy.


if however, the economy tanks republicans in general will be an endangered species.
^^This. My 401k is up 35% since Trump was elected. Who would have expected a 25,000 DOW. Under the last guy, the Welfare rolls swelled, under Trump the market is swelling.

And a liberal guy pretending to be a moderate Trump supporter reposted it on CD. So?

No, you'll find a lot of folks who don't care about Trump only cares about the policies. It's people like you who despise him for who he is. If today it was a different President following the same policies you probably would support him.

I can show countless youtube videos of Hillary and Bill Clinton talking the same Trump policies from the 90s. The differences is that Trump doesn't just talk about it he goes after them and tries to fill his campaign promises while Hillary and Bill are all talk and no action.

I think Hillary would have been a worse choice.


I'm just personally ashamed for Trump. He has no remorse, sense of empathy or anything other than an unquenchable desire to pump his own tires and "prove" he's the best. Even if it means lying constantly.


None of that in isolation is that bad, but this is who we want to present to the world as representing us. That's simply revolting. He's a walking, talking, tweeting, small handed, cheeto colored disgrace. Mildly entertaining when he only affected himself, disturbing as our leader.
