    Al:. You may like Trump’s personality for “deal making”, but don’t forget his personality disorder of narcissism. Read up on that disorder and you will begin to see why his leadership qualities are affected and his strange behavior becomes more explainable. Some of his negative behavior is predictable and detrimental to his success.

      Again I have to say that I definitely did not vote for the man. For what it is worth, I could really care less aobut his “deal making”.

      I was and still am hoping that things will get shaken up so that so changes that I would like to see are made. Exsamples are the unenforcement of laws that apply to me but apparently not to all people. I would like also to see an end to political correctness. There is, in my mind, a huge difference between it and simply “loving your fellow man, as Jesus taught”.

      I don’t think his behavior is strange. It just reflects how selfish and arrogant he is.

    I Forget who it was who first said “The lessor of two evils is still evil”, but so far I don’t rate Trump as evil. He is doing the best he can, with opposition on ALL fronts.
    He cannot wave a magic wand and end Obamacare. He Cannot suddenly balance the budget. He is doing what he can to remove rules and regulations that are excessively burdensome.
    He is trying to drain some of the swamp.
    Everything worthwhile takes time…….and so it goes.

    Archdeacon (!) Andrew says:

    David just who has diagnosed Mr Trump with having a narcissistic personality disorder? There’s all the difference between a person who is narcissistic and someone such as Trump who has a colossal ego. A narcissist hates to be corrected, and is in love with himself to such an extent that he alienates all those about him/her. Despite MSM’s unceasing efforts to parody the U.S. president with these latter traits, he has made countless friends thanks to his selfless generosity whilst enjoying the support of a close and well adjusted family.

      I would agree with you Andrew.

    Yes, certainly all major changes do take time.

    I agree with Andrew. It’s amazing how many people will simply think whatever they are told to think.

    Credibility plunging worldwide. You wonder who will believe the US at the next international crisis.

    Germans who believe US is a trustworthy ally
    November, 2016: 59%
    February, 2017: 22%

      Those people will generall think along the same lines as tose who agree with them. That is the reason that many “advisors; letter writers; and others who are seldom correct about much of anything have such a strong following.

        Dick Tracy says:

        There is so much phony media these days that critical thinking is all you can consider, but most people will never be able to decide because they won’t listen to others and read very little. So we get what we deserve, but our species is no different from any other, we will last only as long as something better comes along and that something we have created, AI.

      That, AJ, is a very sad but true statistic. It proves just how far we have fallen doesn’t it?

    Trump will drain the swamp and refill it with a different kind of swamp.
