Which of those could he do without Congressional support? His attempts at tge wall were not supported by the legislature and his redirection of funds for the wall was stopped by courts.
Absolutely. Imagine what he could have accomplished with a modicum of support and not having to deal with with false impeachment, Russian collusion, etc. What he has accomplished is kind of amazing.

I am going to disagree because:

HRC was not investigated.

We are still in NATO.

Trump has never had a replacement for Obamacare.

Trump promised an actual border wall on land with an actual fence.

Trump promised to deport "all" immigrants here illegally who are criminals.
Again - he said we’d leave NATO IF NATO countries didn’t meet their financial obligations, the other NATO nations ponied up and did meet their obligations due to this threat. Promise kept

Trump is building new barriers, and increased fees and tariffs on Mexico - So, we are getting two walls for the price of one - Promise kept.

Another falsehood from you. He has several great proposals but congress won’t budge - Promise kept in the fact that he has tried.
And AGAIN, he destroyed the :dog: legacy and ambitions. I take that as a partial victory.

You’re goin to disagree because you are being intentionally obtuse. It comes across as immature, and annoying.

Unlike what left leaning individuals like yourself think, Trump is NOT a dictator, he doesn’t rule by fiat. He must work within the frame work of the constitution, the thing you all want to destroy, and have cooperation from the little napoleons in Congress.

geez, leftist have so destroyed education, I have to give civics lessons in a gun forum.

Go crawl back under your rock or go protest with the rest of the low life scum!
I don't protest like the commies but I think you're lost on the meaning of my post. Not worth the effort to clarify it to the likes of you.

And here's what we'll get with your preferred choice for president:

Prosecuting Hillary Clinton

No corrupt politician will ever be prosecuted under a Democratic administration unless it's a Republican guilty of some technicality and any new corruption, no matter how severe, will ever see the light of day in the state-controlled media or in the corrupt Democrat controlled department of justice or the equally crooked FBI.

Ditching NATO

NATO will no longer be necessary under a Democrat administration because we'll be friends with all our enemies and won't have anything to do with any of our former allies.

Rebuilding infrastructure

Trump was willing to do this but the Democrats were too busy investigating Russian collusion and trying to impeach Trump.

Deporting all illegal immigrants

Again Trump was willing to do this but the Dems would rather die than to deport a substantial portion of their voting base. The only way Trump could have done it is if he were a dictator rather than a president.

National Debt

Harris/Biden will increase it by multiples of a thousand.

A border wall paid for by Mexico.

We could have paid for it ourselves ten times over with the money the Democrats have pissed away on expanding social programs for illegal immigrants.

Repeal and Replace Obamacare

Parts of Obamacare have been repealed. But Democrats will expand Obamacare and you and I and anyone who works for a living will help pay for it.
Nice spin job on TRUMP’s UNDELIVERED promises from 2016.

Good point because Trump should UNDERSTAND how our THREE branches works BEFORE he made those promises. If he did, he would not have made those promises.

The silver lining has to be the appointed judges. The President has not delivered on ANY of his 2016 campaign promises.

Worth it? Considering the current chaos in America, I would say no.
But you'll never be happy until we're Amerika.

You are mostly correct about Biden.

However, socialism is already in our country with Medicare, Social Security, minimum wage, etc..
Maybe spend some time studying what socialism really is and what it leads to. I agree that those are big social programs leaning in that direction, and these programs are failures, but our system is not socialism...yet. President Trump has tried to spark the private sector of the economy and free the economic system up some. Things will only veer more towards real socialism and the inevitable attendant tyranny that follows if "we" don't stand in the way of the left. We see some of it already with the governors' reactions to the Wuhan flu and the BLM/Antifa "systemic racism" canard. It's a constant battle when people are told by the politicians, who are taking individual wealth to buy votes, that they can "rely on government." Allowing the leftist statists to gain power is absolutely the wrong move here regardless of one's personal animus toward President Trump. That is what must not happen. That is our duty as citizens.

Yeah...no candidate ever says they will do something and then gets stifled by congress. So...your only viable choices are Harris/Biden, Trump/Pence, or lay on the floor kicking and screaming like a child and waste your only opportunity to act with the power you have been given to choose.

In the off chance that it happens, will 4 years of tweet storms have been worth it? Biden can undo most of what Trump has done aside from the federal court appointees but thus far we have already seen Trump appointees refusing the legislate from the bench and ruling against the administration on a few issues.

Disclaimer: Hillary is literally Satan, Biden has dementia and Democrats hate America. Now let's actually discuss the issue at hand.

Blatantly false dichotomy.

Fighting for what's right is never wrong. If the Democrats win, Harris will eventually become President! She will force the socialist issue and we will go to war. I hope it never comes to that but I'm a realist!

So... by that logic no campaign should ever list a plan or make a promise ever. As much as I would love all politicians to actually tell the truth, you might as well go tell the sky to be purple for all the good that will do you.

Our system is not pure capitalist, either. It is a hybrid of capitalist and socialist. Our military, USPS, police/fire departments, public schools, interstates, public libraries, community colleges, national parks, water, sewage, and waste management are ALL socialist.

We have taken the best of capitalism and SOCIALISM to make this country sustainable.

So he was selling
B.S.? Have you heard the President addressing any of the things from my list?
R.B. you know those were real goals and you know he accomplished a lot. You also know he attempted to accomplish every one against great resistance.

Trump’s first term was successful by most measures. Impeachment and Covid were not in his playbook at the outset, and both were huge energy and focus drains that hobbled his Presidency.

Trump ain’t pretty to watch, but he is a worker and a fighter for the right goals and the right reasons. He has earned another shot.

Sure. I never stated "we"were purely capitalist, although I'm not sure what the best of SOCIALISM means? Just because the government supplies something doesn't make our system socialism. There's much more to it than that. Like I said, look at it and you'll see that there's little more to it than that. Sweden, for example, is not a socialist economic/political system...they make their money through capitalism practiced by private corporations.
