    He sets a record in the amount of hit-piece propaganda directed against him, soaked up by leftists who will believe anything if it makes them feel good and fits their myopic world view. Almost the entire MSM not only sold out massively for Hillary (as proved by Wikileaks, cooked polls, and fake news), but they continue to spread hysteria and propagandize against Trump.

    Maybe he should dance on Ellen and seem cool, like Dear Leader "B" Hussein Obama. Then he could run up the deficit $9.3 Trillion, bomb Middle east countries, and collect a Nobel Peace Prize, and no one will say a thing.

    Which is why Trump lost so badly against Clinton; the American people sure love that MSM. They believe everything it says, and do whatever it tells them to do.

    Are those approval ratings from the same shills who made the elections polls?

    That's the way we like it. Low ratings but bigly wins in getting stuff done. :)

    Oh, where to start...I'll stick to the facts as it should concern a Conservative. Trumps tax plan adds about $7 trillion to the deficit over the next decade. The "wall" will cost tens of billions of dollars (not including upkeep and maintenance. Backing out of various trade deals and antagonizing Mexico (whom with we have a pretty robust trading relationship) couldn't possibly cost the US revenue either I suppose. There was a time (pretty recently) when I could accept the tacit left-right argument about airing grievances...but Trump is different, no matter your political stripe - he's either incompetent or staging a coup of sorts that is a first in my lifetime. I think Conservatives have as much to worry about as the "lefties" out there...

    You mean the ones that predicted the popular vote to within 1-2%? By all means, if you can do better, then have a go.

    Yeah - the EO for the ban has worked out well both in action and positive sentiment. And last night he fired two people for actually doing the job they are supposed to do. He's getting stuff done. A toddler in a playroom also gets a lot done quickly - making a huge mess of everything.

    When they say "he's getting stuff done," read that as "he's making the trains run on time."

    Draining the swamp was about sacking the hacks from the last 8 years. ;)

    Again - she was doing her job. And her time there was limited anyway as it was based on the approval of Trump's appointee. Make no mistake - she was fired because Trump only wants "yes" men/women around him like he's CEO of a company. That's not how our country works.

    2 reasons this EO has shrunk Trump's approval rating:

    - It was executed with utter incompetence. How little respect Trump has for border agents that he drops this mess on their shoulders and goes to watch Finding Dory while it hits the fan. No thought went into this at all, no planning, no analysis, no critical thinking, no due diligence. Remember how badly Bush fumbled Katrina, and his approval rating never really recovered as he was never able to shake that memory if incompetence. The same is happening here.

    - This EO increases the chances of a terrorist attack in the US, not decreases it. ISIS is retweeting breitbart stories about this EO, and the text of the EO itself. They're celebrating it, they're saying their leader's prediction of how terrible American's are are coming true. Here's the thing that is actually a danger to us: homegrown terrorists already in the US who feel there is a war between east values and west values, reading ISIS propaganda, and being recruited as a lone-wolf soldier. What Trump has done is ensured that ISIS has enough propaganda for raise up more lone wolf extremists within the US than ever before, thereby making us all less safe.

    It is astonishing that, in less than two weeks, the current president has destroyed American prestige and goodwill around the world. He is confirming everyone's worst fears about the US by appealing to the worst instincts of many.

    Hard to get excited about a Gallup Poll with their track record or lack of

    "Gallup has been a fixture in presidential polling for decades but a tough cycle in 2012 left them as one of the MOST INACCURATE major polling firms in the country. As a result, they vowed to examine their methods and come back strong in 2016. Well, apparently, they’re not confident enough yet to step back in the water."

    FAKE NEWS. Trumps ratings are the best. They're the greatest. Many people are saying this. Trump has the most viewers, retweets, comments, likes.

    If Trump runs for office in 4 years and wins, than the Democrats/liberals will still have no clue why he got re-elected.

    Yeah, exactly. After Dubya won his first term, there was similar outrage on the streets by the bleeding-heart Democrats ... so much so, that the voters rewarded Dubya with a second term as POTUS. Too funny.
