Let’s Take A Look At Some Of The Good Things Trump Is Doing
Trump Recently In A Tweet Complained Media Is Ignoring All The Great Things He’s Doing And Is Instead “Trying Endlessly To Make Me Look As Bad An Evil As Possible”
Update: Little did we know when we wrote this, that Trump, in early morning Tweets today, would furiously lash out even more intensely about this very same issue, in the form of a direct threat to Google & other search engines, concluding: “This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!”
We’d argue that Trump himself, not the media, is to blame for looking so bad and evil. Perfect example: the flag above the White House going from half-staff to full-staff to half-staff again, as the President wrestled with just how much to publicly disrespect the recently deceased Senator John McCain, after quite possibly overestimating how much his base would enjoy him snubbing the Arizona Senator, who’d just lost a battle with brain cancer. And the President’s animus seeming to never quite allow him to understand why McCain refused to show blind loyalty to him (as much of the rest of the Republican party has). So it’s hard to move beyond a President who talks all the time about how he’s treated “unfairly”, when nothing’s more unfair than the way Trump first brutally blindsided the Vietnam war hero, and then expected zero repercussions.
Setting that aside — as hard as that is to do — we did find a handful of policies and initiatives we like.
• Starting with the most recent: Trump’s announcement of an agreement-in-principle on an updated trade deal with Mexico. Yes, it’s not a done deal yet, and yes, it’s really only 1/2 a deal since Canada is missing right now, and they’re the 3rd partner. But far from the highly disruptive re-envisioning (or even utter trashing) of NAFTA Trump has repeatedly promised, it’s a lot closer to a common-sense updating of a pact…
