This thread is political from the first post.
That's for damned sure.
Honest answer - the Americans who are most affected by what results they've seen so far from President Trump don't really give two shits about Stormy Daniels or Russia collusion - they're seeing jobs coming back, seeing a country that is leading the world again and not kissing ass or apologizing because they do feel that America is being made great again. Many of these people felt betrayed not just by Obama but by Bush before him, and damned sure felt that Clinton was an embarrassment to the country.
I agree, President Trump did build his campaign upon the comment mentioned by the OP. But one thing you've got to give him - he's actually doing something that no other politician before him would do, he's actually fulfilling or trying to fulfill his campaign promises. The previous FIVE winners of his office had said they'd move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem - Trump did it.
I sort of think of him as what Ross Perot might have been if he'd been elected during his first run for office, when he actually made sense. Government isn't the answer, a lot of the time it's the actual problem in the first place.
And of course, the other minor detail - unprecedented levels of blank unemployment - it's never been lower in the history of this country. Actual unemployment across the board not only at near record lows, but even factoring in the true U-6 numbers, still near full employment. Actually securing the borders of the country to not only prevent illegals from entering the country, but also securing them to prevent terrorists from slipping in the same way. Actually enforcing laws that exist right now regarding illegal aliens - most of which really aren't Mexican, but are from further south.
And finally telling the rest of the world that the U.S. is open for business that's fair for BOTH sides of the equation - not that the U.S. is going to simply feed everyone else off our teat to our own detriment - which has been the status quo coming from Foggy Bottom for way too long.
Congratulations, the free ride is over. You don't have to like the guys personal life - you do have to admire the way he's not only fucking over the mainstream media (which we've known has been biased for liberals at LEAST since 2001, when Bernie Goldberg exposed the dirty secrets at CBS), he's also causing liberal communist Democrat (but I repeat myself) heads to explode in rage because he truly doesn't appear to give a shit WHAT they think. He's going to do what's right for America First.
Oh, and I voted for Cruz in the primaries, and against Hillary in the general because ... seriously, that was the best the Dems could come up with? So I really wasn't what you'd call a Trump supporter by any means. Since then, though ... hell, at age 72, standing in the hot sun for nearly two hours AFTER his speech, just so he could shake the hands of every Annapolis graduate. Obama addressed the graduating class twice during his tenure, then shook a few hands and left.
