Is there anything our President can do

that will not result in attacks against him?

I see people saying the tariffs he proposes will do harm to allies like Canada...but he has already said "exceptions" can be made. 60% of our trade deficits are from China. there never seems to be an honest report of all the details, on anything he proposes. At the same time, the tax cuts are showing a benefit to millions of people...but they were all attacked viciously.

Can anyone explain why tax dollars, from people all around the country, should go to California, while it protects "illegals"? Are people who sneak into this nation here illegally? That seems like a simple thing to understand. If people don't want to recognize that "law" then what one will be ignored next? What is this teaching the young people? Listening to most of the news broadcasts one would think this nation is a total "3rd world" one, with nothing that is good about it. Must be sad to grow up hearing that.

The jury is out on the tax cuts. A temporary economic boost is inevitable following a tax cut. Perhaps the 3+ percent growth will cover the deficits caused by cutting federal revenue without cutting costs. Perhaps not.

I'm with ya on California and sanctuary cities/states.

Here's a question I put to you: Is there anything our President can do that will cause his supporters to hold him accountable for his uncounted political flip flops and outright lies?
Thanks from Nwolfe35, Hollywood, Lyzza and 1 others

There's plenty he's done that people disagree with. You're just never going to hear an "I wish I voted Clinton", if that's what you're asking for.

Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it

& so the candidate who ran a scorched-earth campaign from the moment he threw himself into the ring - is now asking for political quarter? But he never offered any, he never took any prisoners, he shot them all as soon as he had them in his power.

That's what remains when you win by scorched-earth tactics - it's all ashes & ruination, as far as the eye can see. There is no political goodwill left, he threw it on his bonfire of the vanities & threw gasoline upon it, heaped torches upon it, & danced while it went up in flames.

Like a massive burn scar after a general conflagration in old-growth forest, it will take centuries for the scars to heal. & meanwhile Trump can make his horse a senator. Can he play the violin, by any chance?

The parallels would be complete, except, alas, that he's already cast the Christians into the furnace. Well, he never claimed to be a student of history ...
Thanks from RNG and Camelot

Then again, I and many others threw our weight behind Trump for many other reasons than that he would make a good president. So the day to day blunders plastered all over the MSM don't really capture my attention in the same way it does yours.

Trump should have fired Comey within 2 hours after taking the oath of office...
