If we can sit aside, for a moment, all the Trump bashing by the progressive democrats and our own dislike of some of his comments and tweets—and evaluate his performance from the job he was assigned to do.

That job, to a large degree, is Article II. of the U.S. Constitution. Some of the salient points, as follows: “…. that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
In every issue that has arisen, I see he has done performed as expected, aka ordered.

Next, the Constitution states “…. he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” He has fought valiantly to uphold the laws Congress has made. For example, the practices in sanctuary cities are illegal. He has attacked those. And he has and is attacking illegal immigration-clearly against the laws of the United States. (see 8 USC 1324).

Lastly, he has issued orders to stay visas from countries where two federal agencies have stated vetting is not possible. This authority—and responsibility—is clearly laid out in 8 USC 1182(f). Several federal judges have seemed to have found a “super clause” in the Constitution which enables them to overlook federal law if enforcing that law runs counter to their sense of “social justice.” Section VI. Of the Constitution states that “This Constitution and the Laws of the United States…..” “shall be the supreme law of the Land; and the Judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or Laws of a State to the Contrary notwithstanding.” I don’t know where this leave us.

Nation-states are formed to protect us from threats—both external and internal. And for the US, at least, to secure, and protect,our liberty and freedom. To do this requires a vibrant economic system. President Trump has done much to jump start this economy, lifting the Obama restrictions on offshore drilling and the Keystone pipeline as well as onerous business regulations.

Overall, I give him high marks and hope his administration will avoid even replying to the ridiculous attacks from the left, especially the media, press and electronic, with their leftist agenda and so much control of the narratives. It is good to forget the media completely, as I have. It’s not “fake news” anymore; it’s lies.

In my opinion, the flaw in your commentary and analysis is equating the agenda and the individual. What has been promoted and achieved so far, would have been achieved by any Republican administration , regardless of who was President . Accomplishments to date, have not been accomplished because of Trump, but in spite of him. On the topic of collusion with the Russians, I don't think Trump was involved, because I don't believe he has the intellectual acumen to pull off such a stunt. Most of Trump's difficulties so far have been largely self inflicted. He is mean spirited, divisive, demeaning, and in my opinion, wholly incompetent. His idiotic impulsiveness and verbal assaults on any perceived slights, are only making matters worse. I believe the Senate could very well go to the Democrats in 2018 because of his erratic and irresponsible behavior . Republicans may have won the battle for the White House, but could ultimately lose the war. The Republican Party could be damaged for a generation,, and you have Donald J. Trump to thank for that. He may be doing more for the progressive agenda than Schumer, Pelosi and Sanders combined.
