Because of the things he says because of the lack of seriousness in his approach to lead, it is hard to imagine how he can effectively govern for the next 3 and half years.

What he will not come out and say makes it impossible for him to put any pressure on even his own party to push policies through.
Any poli sci majors have a take on this? He continues to fail in this area and now is unimaginable that he will be able to negotiate even among the GOP.

I feel like I am being ultra realistic on this point. Simply his race relations could perhaps be the worst since reconstruction era.

He's made a ton of executive orders despite running on a platform again doing that sort of thing. His legacy is going to be (hopefully only) 1 SCOTUS nomination.

He'll declare victory based on the effects of Obama's policies though.

It could be worse than that. Suppose the FED raises interest rates and growth increases despite his best interests.

People are more likely to interperate Trump's rhetoric of "bring back jobs only done in undeveloped countries" and "cut taxes for the ultra-rich" as good economic sense.
Presidents get reelected during periods of good economic growth.

I almost want the democrats to say "Let the free market handle it" if Trump tries to work with them on infrastructure.
Wasn't that one of Trump's major planks? To attract foreign investment to pay for infrastructure, and also get it done cheaper and faster?

His immigration policy will make sure growth doesn't increase.

Unemployment is so low that we need more people to go to work. Trump isn't letting those people into the country, so homes are going unit and crops unpicked. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/trumps-war-on-legal-immigrants-will-cripple-the-economy/2017/08/02/c4f0de20-77c2-11e7-9eac-d56bd5568db8_story.html?utm_term=.d92f3172c359

Idk how he can brag about how he created 70 bazillion jobs and unemployment is the lowest it's been since 2001...

It's been 7 months. What legislation has he passed that would be responsible for this? All this shit we're seeing is the remnants of the Obama administration. The effects of Trump's policies won't be seen at least for another year or two.

You don't snap your finger and change the economy.

He bribed Carrier millions of taxpayer dollars to keep (I know, this isn't the same as creating new jobs) a few hundred jobs in the US. They laid off the workers and exported jobs to Mexico anyway.

Great deal you made there, Donny.

They do that to give them fair airtime. I've seen a few ads there from Trump and his cronies. It also gives Fox news less opportunity to point and shriek at CNN.

I see.

Anyhow, this is another reason why I get so pissed off at the whole "liberal media" meme because if the media really was so "LIBERAL", that ad wouldn't have ran at all.

Besides, CNN is pretty much centrist with slight center of left (and occasional center of right) elements sprinkled throughout.

He's Faux Lame Duck. His disapproval ratings going to break records and become the reigning champion in that regard. All it takes is for more Republican politicians to outwardly show disdain for him. This will create a domino effect because most politicians supported him out of party obligations and Stockholm syndrome. You don't want to be that one Republican to go against Trump do you? Trump is losing his strange immunity that he's had. Once he loses all support from the right (not his base but those in office), they'll then begin to proceed with pushing impeachment. He's a liability to the GOP. The main reason he's even present is due to the electoral college, Russia using propaganda to get people to vote for him or at least cause leftists to stay home, gerrymandering, and voter suppression.

As many problems the DNC has right now, it's not as bad as it is for the GOP. On the other hand, organizations like Learn Liberty are doing a good job of getting confused and naive millennials over to the fascistic side of things. Although, I have noticed recently that there is a push back against it. It's not working as well as it used to because people are noticing that the dangers of the university lefty is nothing in comparison to the alt-right and what they are doing and demanding right now.

Trump will be remembered as the key accelerator of the downfall of the United State's sole grip around the neck of the world. His clown-like behavior is alienating other politicians around the world as alliances without the U.S. are multiplying and becoming stronger. Russia, China, India, Brazil, Chile, Vietnam, all rapidly industrializing nations ready to grab a bigger share of the pie.

Trump is actually just really generous, caring and compassionate for the comparable plight of the developing nations :)

Thank you, Mr. Trump!

>The tea party was manufactured by the right. It lasted, well, about a year.
How did you draw this conclusion?

Maybe its gone in name (since Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin drove that name into the ground), but the republican party of today is very different from even the republican party of W because of the tea party. Cruz, Rubio & maybe Kasich were all Tea Party guys. Plus the Freedom Caucus is sympathetic to the movement.

Cruz, Rubio & Kasich claimed it when it was convenient, then ditched it when it wasn't, ie when it started to die. They were never really "in" it.

The freedom caucus is the last real remnant of any real influence the tea party had/has, and ironically it's actually causing a rift now within the GOP. they were a major factor in the obamacare repeal failing.

democrats naaaaarrowly lost the presidency, even getting more votes overall. the republicans on the hand did win both houses, but are somehow still struggling to pass legislation.

From all the white trash waving signs whose only unifying factor is that they support tax breaks for the rich, social cuts for themselves, and deregulation for industry/finance.
People don't invent such insane, self-destructive stances in a vacuum, the tea-party is the result of "libertarian" groups amplifying any perspective that contains those three stances.
This is why there's dozens of unrepresented, conflicting opinions held by the tea party, from birthers to truthers to gay marriage to the military to drug law to anything else that does not affect the bottom line of the entities who worked to make those people's voices heard by as many people as possible.

Koch and entities with similar interests created and funded AFP, Freedomworks, Tea Party Patriots, and other groups that spread propaganda, set up rallies, and fund campaigns to make the tea party a thing.

Pretty much all of Rubio & Cruz's policies line up with Tea Party policies. There's a big difference between them and Bush/the republican party I grew up with. I agree the name isn't in the media anymore, but that doesn't matter because the Republican Party has shifted to the right & espoused a lot of Tea Party policy.

>From all the white trash waving signs whose only unifying factor is that they support tax breaks for the rich, social cuts for themselves, and deregulation for industry/finance.
It didn't last just a year. All that is still going on. They might not be the loudest group of protesters in the street (but I'm sure there's a ton of overlap with the alt-right/MAGA crowd), but they are the loudest group in congress. Senators get 6 year terms, so I guess we'll have to see in 2018 how many of these tea party guys get voted out, but as of now, the impact of the tea party can still be felt in the republican party.

Reps have Congress because of gerrymandering and partisan districting. Dems won't oppose it because they play the game too.

Really wish we had independent districting and, I don't know, anything but first past the post voting. It's ridiculous that two parties have dominated American politics for 150 years. But I'm preaching to the choir here.

I would bet my life savings that he's not going to make it to the end of his term. It's not like he's going to magically start shaping up and become a great president, quite the contrary, soon Obama's leftover proposals will be drying up and he'll have nothing to claim as his own and the shiatgibbons he replaced them with can't do the task because for one, Trump still hasn't hired anyone to work in other important congress confirmed positions. The entire government is just limping along and when people has quit, no one is replacing them. Trump seems wholly uninterested in hiring people to actually run the fucking government. He's going to war with the GOP and it's only a matter of time before they start hitting back and impeach. Mueller is getting closer to giving them the ammo they need every day.
