Do you understand that our corporate tax rate was much higher than any other nation? Do you not understand that when corporations are able to reinvest in their companies, they can hire people? Or, do you think that the government should be hiring all people and paying us?

Trumps' treatment of people is getting worse and older by the minute. He is nothing but an old loudmouth, run of the mill, rich wannabe playboy, con artist that just happened to have the presidency handed to him, like everything else in his life.

No wonder he is so cocky. When he falls off his wall, and crashes, like humpty dumpty, I hope you are ready to catch your weird idea of what a president and commander and chief, should be.
This is the thinking of people who get their 'news' from the so-called MSM. If you take a moment to actually watch him and see what he says, you would understand differently.

The only thing he has going for him is the economy he inherited and economists think we're headed to a RECESSION.

As much as I would hate to see a serious downturn in our national economy, Trumpees deserve it, and it will be interesting to see how they spin the blame when it happens. I find it very odd how they are more than willing to take credit when things were continuing to improve (Thank you Obama !) and we all know they will never accept any responsibility when it goes South. It will be "Hillary, Hillary, Hillary......."

Trump is in a precarious situation here. 2020 is fast approaching, and things, economically, are starting to wane. Even as inept as he is, he has to know his chances of re election are hinged on the economy, and if it changes adversely, he will be a one hit wonder.

I prefer a person that can talk in complete sentences and doesn't have to have someone, later on (KellyAnne), say he didn't mean that but meant something else.

True Trump voters tend to cover up what he said by saying he didnít say that and IF he did thatís not what he meant.

Forgot to mention the great health care program he promised. He's got a year to get it done before he's one and done and history will show how bad of a President he was......

Trump: 'Nobody knew health care could be so complicated'

That is only the base. His approvals run 33-43% average, but that includes independents. The only people that would stick with him in a bad economy that Trump caused is his 33% base. Independents have generally opined that they would not vote for him should the economy tank.

And, frankly, the base may be ok with Trump's crude, bullying, vindictive, immature and negative behavior and comments, but a lot of people are exhausted by it. Many would prefer a president who shut up, did his job and did not require more attention than a one-year-old.

People can claim they don't care if the president is a role model or not, but when their kids start repeating the crude, bullying, bigoted and offensive behavior, maybe they will. Schools will not put up with the type of bad behavior Trump constantly acts out.
