Hardly -- but every last item on Trump's accomplishment list serves destroy America and undermine our reputation and our democratic institutions . His executive orders will be erased soon after his exit from the Oval Office. Trump has done more damage to this country than any other president in the last 150 years and it may take decades to repair what he has done.

Speaking of an idiot, Bush II was treated like one nearly nightly on David Letterman.

Congress did vote to resume military action in Iraq.

Bin Laden was hiding out in Pakistan. That country would not allow U.S. troops in to search for him. Would you have approved of Bush invading Pakistan?

Quite so.

This is why people are examining Trump's motives. The things Trump has done to hurt this country are so irrational on the surface of it people of both political parties want to know 'why'? ... why would he?

If so, that's a problem of his own making. He is entirely responsible for that.
Trump has made himself fearful and fixated on Obama's legacy and presidential performance. The issue making Trump erratic and unstable in general is his delusional disorder. It flip-flops from one thing to another but is often related to Obama and anyone who opposes his supreme will. He has a maniacal obsession with Obama and can't find enough ways to blame him for every real or imagined problem. It is close to erotomaniacal stalking behavior in some ways. With every thought of Obama, Trump whittles away at his own grandiose and inflated sense of self-worth. That is what fuels his passion and hatred. He has an unquenchable jealousy that is entirely based on delusional thoughts. He has frequently exhibited or expressed paranoid behavior regarding Obama -- but it doesn't stop with Obama. He imagines that everyone -- the FBI, Federal Reserve, and now Fox news is out to get him. And somehow, it is all Obama's fault.

Put another way, 30% more people do not approve of him.

Or another way, among the approx. 220 million US adults, about 30 MILLION more don't approve than do......
Not surprising considering that about 80% of the media is anti-Trump.

I liken Trump to be the evil form of Herbert Hoover. Everything from currying favor to racists and the Smoot-Harley Tarrif Act.

Things didnít work out so well back then.

At least at his core Hoover was a kind and giving philanthropist.

You might want to ask him, lol. It appears he can't Obama out of his head.

Nah, the media just reports what he says and does. If you want to blame something for Trump's abysmal ratings, you might want to start with him. Of course, with Trump anything bad that happens will always be somebody else's fault. He is textbook.
