    Almost one year has passed since Trump took the oath. Good or bad what do you think he has accomplished in that time?

    Thankfully, He hasn't accomplished a whole lot. He seems to be fracturing the Republican party (A good thing IMO). He has brought a lot of hidden United States problems to the forefront (A good thing IMO). That's all the good I've seen. His policies are bad for the United States, His executive actions are bad for the United States, His Foreign statesmanship has been bad for the United States and He may have changed politics for the worse for years to come IMO.

    The good:
    - No new wars
    - All the political fighting, crying, whining, teeth gnashing, & other such entertainment.
    - No legislative successes (in areas I hate)

    The bad:
    - No legislative successes (in areas I like)
    - Trump appears to be a poor manager.

    The war in Syria ended and there's risen tensions with North Korea. That's one good and one bad.

    The worst thing that has happened during the campaign and after is that US relations with Russia have reached a low point in decades, even lower than Obama admin managed, but I think a lot of that has been thanks to US media. It's hard to say if Trump's promised "reset" with Russian relations that many were hoping for could have been a reality without the media outrage to block all meaningful diplomacy. As it is, it seems the west is becoming more anti-Russia than during the end of the Soviet Union.

    "but I think a lot of that has been thanks to US media."

    The media? Really? So not Russia for being the actual entity that meddled in our presidential election, but the media that reports on it? If Russia wants better relations with the USA then perhaps they should keep their fingers out of our politics.

    I have the advantage of never having liked Trump.
    The lesser of 2 evils is still evil, you know.

    Personally, I think Trump has caused even a deeper rift between the Left and the Right, stalled progression of climate concerns, lower the ethical values and maturity of the White House, increased public hostility towards immigrants and the media, among several other things.

    The war in Syria ended? When? And why would you think it had anything to do with Trump even if it had??

    One bad thing no one has mentioned: Trump has rescinded gains in transgender rights under Obama.

    I would add that twitter might be out of business except for him. That's success of a sort.

    Good:
    - Bringing Democrats together.
    - Republican losses in many places.
    - Democratic Socialism is becoming respectable again although that might be more due to what goes on in Congress and the growth of the super-rich oligarchy.

    Your extreme amount of denial is concerning.

    Hey if the rural areas want to give back so much to the cities thats their business. I highly recommended not but I'm in a big city so meh. Hope the coal jobs were worth it cause that's about all I saw so far from the big wig.

    Do you really think the US keeps it's fingers out of anyone else's politics?

    It's just about finished. ISIS has no controlled cities and their people are going back to their countries. As you know Trump admin took taking out ISIS as a priority. You can't really focus on trying to get Assad out while trying to fight a genocidal rebellion.
