FOUR years? This had- been going on since they truck bombed our base back in 70s. We kinda notice this more since Bush got Iraq. Obama let the rise of ISIS occur. He promised a red line would be enforced. People were gassed with no response. Trump actually heads multiple achievements including V.A. reform

Iran and Iraq used to be enemy, but now they came together. Iraq wants US out of their land. After US spent over $9T pouring money there while our debt hits $23T, now US has to get out, and looks like Iran will control the middle east.

Trump has created a catastrophe, spent over a trillion on defense while National debt reach over $23T, averaging out to $77,000 per citizens. The average americans have less than $600 in the bank, while the 1% have 90% of the wealth, sky rocket healthcare costs,farmers going bankrupt, student loan debt...this ship is heading into a big storm guided by a Cowboy at the forefront. Trump will not be reelect led for sure. Any Democrats can win hands down.

Zero percent, right?What is with you and farmers? Yrump has hired reasonable judges that don't rule from the bench. It's why I voted for him. I didn't trust the other promises (he kept) but the defense that Bush spent, dems sequestered leading to the destruction of military while Obama gave the funds to illegals, refugees and... Iran, yeah jr gave them a lot of money so, Wong answer? Yes...

Let’s see here: Trump promised his base he would remove US troops from the Middle East and reach a two-solution peace accord with Palestine and Israel. Oh, and he also promised to “remove and replace” Obamacare, have Mexico pay for a wall he never built, provide a “huge” tax cut to the middle class, and play less golf than President Obama. And he has told his base he has delivered on all his promises. But worse still, some on this board believe him. Lemmings? Yes! Brain washing? Yes! One-term only? Yes!

So let’s look at this more closely....here’s a man whose campaign promises included removing all US troops from the Middle East, brokering a two-state solution peace accord between Palestine and Israel, building a wall that would be paid for by Mexico, dismantling Obamacare, delivering “huge” tax cuts to the middle class, ensuring GDP growth of 4-5%, establishing a balanced budget, striking a “beautiful non-nuclearization deal” with North Korea, playing golf less than President Obama, and countless other promises Trump has never kept. And now saying that he’s made good on everything he said he would do. Who’s brainwashing who.....?
