Can you name off alot of the good things Trump brought to the table, or do you just not want to?
Honestly, since his tax cuts were couple with a lot deductions, it's hard to say Trump did a lot of purely good things. Why the hell not just do an income tax reduction, without screwing it up with other BS?
His idea of healthcare was no different than the ACA. I know what he said about his plan. But apparently he didn't even fight for the things he promised. Like selling insurance across state lines.
I could've gotten behind his China trade war, had it also not been riddled with stupidities and lies. Like the "trade deficit." Did Trump think all of us were too stupid to realize what a trade deficit really is? The way he made it out to be was that China owed us something. When in fact all it was, was us buying more from China than they bought from us. And taxing imports only cost us more.
US corporations weren't leaving the US because of taxes and regulations. They were leaving the US because of the USD value. $5 per day in China vs $25hr here. Hell, who wouldn't move their manufacturing to China or Mexico.
Stop spending so got-dayum much money, get the dollar value back to a decent rate, then the jobs will come back. Americans can afford to buy more American products.
Oh shoot, where was I? Oh yeah, things I liked about Trump.
As an ex salesman, I enjoyed his sales tactics. Some of them were fabulous. I liked the way he seem to **** off the left, constantly. There's some regulations that he got rid of that were necessary. The Keystone pipeline was NOT one of them. I like how he regulated the doctors and Pharmacies into not getting any profit off of certain drugs. But then again, the government paid the doctors and pharmacies their losses.
But at the end of the day, I didn't see him as anything more than a liberal in a republican suit.
