Right-winger Hugh Hewitt has a WaPo column praising Trump's accomplishments. It is not worth reading. My comment to it is:
Replaced NAFTA with, what, a renamed NAFTA?
Made us an outlaw nation on climate change
Deregulated life-saving industry regulations.
Took credit for the turnaround in the economy started by Obama
Aligned with right-wing Netanyahu and made enemies of the Palestinian
Turned a potential partner, Iran, into an enemy
Made friends with the world's most repressive and despotic leaders
Enriched himself by the shameless violation of the emoluments clause
Proved that you don't have to read and comprehend complex information to be president
Demonstrated that the many people accept that few Fox News loudmouths are acceptable presidential advisors
Proved that there's no need for a president to be presidential
Became a role model for men who exploit and abuse women
