Not being party to social media, I feel like I have missed out on a whole world of angst and vitriol brought on by the Trump Presidency. It’s been four years of relative calm to me, apart from having had my own battles to deal with on behalf of my disabled partner. :roll:

Instead of just listening or reading all the hysteria surrounding the downfall of Trump’s presidency I preferred to do some actual reading on what he achieved or tried to do. :?

So what has this egotistic-narcissistic-racist-ignorant tweeting bully achieved apart from alienating the US from much of the world and allegedly condemning 237,000 citizens to death by Covid and recently inciting an invasion of Capitol Hill?

Much of what he attempted in trade and foreign policy appears to have been a mixed bag. Two positives that stand out were; 1/ reduction in business tax from 35 to 21% although some point to a windfall for big business. 2/ changes to the criminal justice system look fairer and actually more humane for convicted criminals and inmates, but some aspects like allocation of judges seem to have more to do with expanding his influence of power.

In some people’s minds even to look for positives make you a deluded-ignorant-racist-sexist-Brexit loving moron! :? I guess that describes me to a T....except perhaps for the racist-moron bit. ;)

Maybe some on here can enlighten me to some things I’ve missed? :old:

I'd like to know how much of any positives was actually due to Trump rather than despite him. TBH I suspect the latter.

I guess these people might disagree.

I suspect there are many layers to go through before he actually gets his orange finger anywhere near it. Or at least I hope so :shock:

I’ve just been reading about Trumps niece Mary and her prediction and explanation of why he might try to wreck as much on his way out the door! Scary stuff.......but as to why the US got such a man for President; ‘as ye sow, so shall ye reap! “

Re-read stuff like Thomas Franks 2016 article in the Guardian; Why so many ordinary Americans support (or supported) Donald Trump. :? You can see how this character became a ‘populist leader’ and had his finger on the pulse of people’s legitimate concerns despite all his flaws. :roll:

I sometimes wonder if vested interests have not tried to exploit Trumps own vanity and weaknesses so that he would ‘zombie like’ turn those characteristics against himself? :? Ultimately they appear to have succeeded!

I’m not being sympathetic at all towards Trump the person, but towards some of his goals whether he actually believed in working towards them or if he was just exploiting them. l am always concerned when some of the original message about why we are where we are gets perverted or lost along the road. :roll:

He may not have been the most desirable of presidents but look at what you MAY end up with
Now I'm not one for conspiracy theories (mainly the unspoken truth) but if this Biden dude has dementia (or any other complaint that impairs his ability), they can play their 25th amendment card...remove him...and install the Vice president....

A left wing, mixed race female!
God help everyone in their next civil war

"Twitter permanently suspends Trump's account" :? Surely that's an oxymoron, you can't "suspend" something permanently.

Joe has already had a premonition.
Then depending on how you view the conspiracy theories, Kamala takes up the presidency and appoints Killery as the veep......3 months on Kamala commits suicide, probably shoot herself twice in the head and there we have it the Clinton's are back in charge.......... perhaps ;)

I am going to miss Trump, he was entertainment right up to the end.

The World will now be much more boring in it`s end stages for us humans, because that`s where we are, end stage....Not long now.

Apologies for the cheerfulness. lOl
