1.  So far Trump has taken the following actions which he believes will "make America great again".

(a)  Imposing tariffs on China, NAFTA partners (Canada and Mexico), India, Vietnam, the European Union and other allies (Japan, South Korea, etc).

(b)  Imposing sanctions on North Korea, Iran, Russia, Myanmar, Turkey, Cuba, Syria, etc.

(c)  Like a jealous boy bent on destroying everything he can find in his stepbrother's playroom, Trump has dismantled his predecessor's signature achievements in healthcare, education, guns, the economy, the justice system, the environment, foreign policy and immigration, etc. after taking office.

(d)  Philip Bump is a national correspondent for The Washington Post based in New York. Before joining The Post in 2014, he led politics coverage for the Atlantic Wire.

The following are excerpts from his December 15, 2017 article headlined "What Trump has undone" at washingtonpostdotcom.

(Begin excerpts)
President Trump has repeatedly argued that he’s done more than any other recent president. That’s not true, as measured by the amount of legislation he’s been able to sign. It is true, though, that Trump has undone a lot of things that were put into place by his predecessors.

Since Jan. 20, Trump’s administration has enthusiastically and systematically undone or uprooted rules, policies and tools that predated his time in office...  (End excerpts)

P.S.  Time will tell whether Trump will "make America great or small again".

Nothing seemed to work with any of Trump’s predecessors. So why not do things nontraditionally? And guess what? Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin forecasts that the US will have a
sustained 3 percent growth over the next four or five years.


In the meantime, many European and Asian countries are quietly smiling. They know their economies will be pulled along for the ride with the US growth.

Unfortunately, the Chinese are going to lose market share with all the tariffs in place. Even Walmart is shifting its supply sources. I can’t wait to see all the expressions, once the tide shifts.

Taxi Driver

I had an African American taxi driver from Memphis Tennessee in Dallas recently. He described Drumpf as a POS. He also said the JFK assassination was an inside job.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

That a country can produce a president like Trump basically shows that its elective process is greatly flawed.

Governing a pivotal nation requires wide-ranging skills and experiences.  It is not like buying lottery tickets, where no skills at all are involved.  Even gambling at the casinos require knowledge of the rules and basic etiquette in placing the bets.

What Trump is doing is upsetting the American apple cart while claiming that he is doing good for the cart owner because, according to his theory, the acidic apples are responsible for the rotten condition of the wooden cart.

Which of course is the belief of a amateurish bigot.

His country's middle class pales in significance when compared to that of up-and-coming China.

Both the stagnant incomes and the inflationary pressures will combine to work against his poorly-assembled plans.

Remember that Mr. Trump was in fact a political maverick who didn't even have enough qualified candidates to fill his cabinet even as important congressional mid-term elections loom in the horizon.

But the red-necks are so desperate by now that they will try anything to keep their bully's seat in the council of nations.

When a woman asks a plastic surgeon "Can you make me look presentable again?" you know she is long past her prime.  Wrinkles all over her face.  So what?

Just accept the inevitable decline.  No need to be wrinkle-free all her life.

A nation, like a person, has its youth, maturity and senescence.

To fight against its natural course of events is unwise -- just think what a botched job at the plastic surgeon's clinic looks like.

"A nation, like a person, has its youth, maturity and senescence."

Quite true.  Just look at our great friend Boston's head.  What's left on his head is some scary hairy thing that looks more like a moustache that originally belonged to John Robert Bolton, but this time it has been transplanted to a wrong place -- the back of the head.  

Meanwhile, his great idol Trump is tweeting more and more incomprehensible garbage, showing symptoms of second childhood.

What a joke, Trump make America great again!  You should watch US news and see and listen to Americans, from farmers, to manufacturers, to consumers, all moaning and groaning about how they are suffering under Trump's tariff wars with so many nations!  Far from making America great again, Trump is making America weak again!
