No health care, no minimum wage increases, no strengthening of the labor union movement, no push to get big money out of politics, more weakening of labor rights like overtime protection, labor rights still one of the worst in the world with no guaranteed paid vacation or sick leave, no reduction in drug prices, no strengthening of social security or medicare, no improvement of disability insurance.

I dont get it. The guy has simply transferred more money and power into the hands of the already well off.
Lower taxes for most Americans, very low unemployment and rising wages.

The Bump Stock ban, but is unenforceable...
But he has returned more liberties back to the people, to choose for themselves, instead of government thinking for you and punishing you if you do not consent.

They did that in 2016. They are so concentrated, it did not matter then either.


More women voted for Trump than voted for Hillary and you expect them to jump on the Creepy Biden train?
Since being sworn in, the Black American voters are waking up to the Plantation mentality of the Democrat party.
Now, the Hispanics everyone thought hated Trump are making the Democrats panic.

When GOPers like to think they know what Democrats believe, they get it wrong. As usual.

MLK was a Republican for a reason. He was not about a handout. It was all about the hand up. The unlimited liberty to choose for yourself.

Trump is going to win, and the reason will be because of the nutty candidates the DNC has presented.
How nutty would the Democratic nominee have to be to make Donald Trump seem normal?

That. Isnít. Happening.

Well, to take your pithy remarks, and applying it:

Trump fulfills all of those conditions...

1) He's always been all about himself and using government to enrich him and his family.

2) He has a pretty good track record of making racist statements and actions.

3) The content of his character is sorely lacking, and so describes a lot of the folks who he's hired to work for him.

I don't you really want to get it but on the off chance that you do, you should stop watching CNN and MSNBC and consider some other sources of news.
