Not surprising. He's doing good for the country in spite of the media's constant bashing of him and the left's hysteria.

Exactly what "good" has he done for the country?!?

Sure, from the left's perspective it's all bad because they need him to fail but to everyone else, here's doing good. I already replied with a list to another user.

Seems like he is going for a second term.

So much hate on this thread.

Yep. You nailed it.

What I get from this is if you get elected during the up of the economical cycle you can get away with pretty much anything.

Friedman would like to have a talk to you and show that there wouldn't be "cycles" if government weren't fucking around the economy so often.

The more the left beat him the more power he will get.

I don't even like him and most of what he says. But I respect his resilience to the media sillyness but get sad that because of that a real classic liberal minarquist candidate can't get a place on the election for the Republicans. So I accept what was available, Trump less bad than hillary.

A few comments, how many Americans here have taken part in a Presidential Poll, ever? Another thing I have an issue with is why polls vary so widly. One will have a +1 Disapproval and one will have a +15 Disapproval. Finally, some polls only call landlines. That in itself is a joke. Which poll can be trusted?

Don't post that.  It flys against the narrative that Trump didn't inherent a good situation from Obama. I feel like folks just try to make up whatever reality they want.  Its easier to do good when the last President had you on track to do so.  Its harder to do what Obama did and resurrect from a recession.  Please Trump, don't squander what you have been given.  Please.

I can definitely say, I do not care if Trump slept with a porn star, cheated on his pregnant wife or any of his sexual disposition.  What I will say is that when you have a man who has cheated on every wife he has had, then you have to wonder about his character.  What I do care about is the constant lying even when faced with facts showing he is lying.  Its like a slap in the face when a person feels he can just lie to you constantly and because you support some of his policy you are to accept it.

Anytime you excuse someone who will lie to you constantly about everything big or small, you have to judge them on that part of their character.  I have been around griffers throughout my life and one thing you come away with when dealing with them is that they constantly lie all the time. They will always tell you want you want to hear and will constantly stab you in the back when the opportunity comes.  Trump history in business is an open book on such practices.  His famed negiotionating ability is a minefield of broken contracts or reneging on deals.

The way I see it, just because I might support the policy of politician does not mean I will just turn a blind eye to their character, moral compass or intelligence level to do a job.  I highly doubt if Trump would hire himself for the Job of president for how, inexperienced he is at politics and incompetent on the simplest of issues.

How is Trump's lying any different than any other politicians. 

Every single politician in the world you can find a video of him/her saying something and then another video of them saying the exact opposite.

They all are big liars and do whatever they can to continue to get elected and get money from lobying or other sources. No politician leaves office poor, or if they do they somehow are millionaires in no time later, such as the Clintons.

The point remains the same. Trump is wearing a mud suit. We all knew what he was when he got elected and he wasn't hiding behind some spotless record, perfect smiling face. No, he was Trump. He is still Trump. Nothing has changed.

You are right nothing has changed.  He is still the griffer he has always been but do not sit there and act as if the people who voted for him see him that way.  You only have to go to a conservative site to see that the narrative is much different.  I have a few friends who voted for Trump and still support Trump and you can believe they do not see him for what you suggest.  They never did any research on Trump.  They believe every word he says without question and will not hear anything that contradict their view.

I can respect if people actually did say that Trump is the scum that they like compared to other politicians.  If they understand who exactly they voted for instead of some upstanding outsider who is going to change washington then at least they are not putting their thumb in their ear and toning out anything negative against him.

Outside of my dislike of habitual liars like Trump is I also feel he is an idiot.  He doesn't have a clue what he is doing and just winging it.  Why would anyone want the village idiot to run their government.  Everything Trump has touched in his past has turned to ashes.  Just look at Trump history.  If anything he has successfully done is market himself but who the hell want that person as President.  When you have people within his administration leaving left and right because he only listen to his own inexperience voice, why would anyone want him making decision on his gut when you look at his past failures.  It's not like he learned anything from them besides how to make banks never give him a dime unless its one laundering money.

Who is this everyone else.  Is everything always left or right.  Can you run down that list again, I do not plan on arguing any of the points just wondering what I am guessing you being on the right believe Trump has accomplished.

The reason why job participation fell a few points is because baby boomers are retiring.  Please stop the scam or at least try to understand the context you numbers are coming from. 

And since people are living longer job participation has to go down because the birth rate is also going down.  

People aren't gonna work till 90 just to make you happy silly lol.
