No opinion as of now. The industry standard is to give new hires a 90 day probationary period before a decision is made. Although Donald Trump was technically hired on election day, today, (1-20-17) is his first day on the job. So, after 90 days I'll be able to honestly answer this poll. However, I was impressed by his speech.
I disapprove of Trump not because I think that he is a vile, mean person; we've had plenty of "mean" people in the White House who have been extremely effective presidents (Johnson is the best example; "the Johnson method" might as well be called "bullying"), and plenty of nice ones (Carter, Ford) who haven't been.
And I don't disapprove because his policy stances seem based entirely on impulse; by any measure his economic plans are predicted to be a disaster for both the US and the world economy, his protectionist stance towards our allies threatens our relatively secure status as dominant world power, and, of course, his policy positions seem to change from day to day.
However, I do disapprove of the fact that he is, plain and simply, a liar. It always seemed ironic that that title was usually attributed to Clinton, while Trump was considered as "telling it like it is," while even a cursory glance at Politifact (or really any fact checking website), will tell you that the opposite is true. And this isn't the type of white lying that politicians often require. This is the creation of an artificial reality entirely unassociated with our own, one where the US is running rampant with crime (it isn't), where our economy is in shambles (it isn't), and where immigrants and PC culture have stolen America from the Americans (it hasn't).
But there are people, particularly in rural ex-manufacturing areas, who are buying this reality because it gives them sorely needed hope. These people have legitimate complaints; the US economy is doing well...but not in their sectors or their towns, where jobs they've worked for generations are traveling overseas. They have a robust and valuable culture...that they correctly feel is becoming diluted by the (on-balance beneficial) influx of new cultures and ideas into the US. Donald Trump said "I alone can fix it," and they believed him because they needed something to believe in.
But Trump is a false prophet. His policies will hit the communities that believed in him the hardest, but Trump's deft denial of the truth may leave them in the dark as to who, exactly, pulled the rug out from under them.
I want to be wrong. I want Trump to uplift us all, but looking at how his proposals are slated to affect the US economy and foreign relations, looking at the baffling lack of experience in his cabinet, I don't think he has the knowledge, nor possibly the will, to do it. He has exploited the desperate to gain power, and that exploitation is what I disaprove of the most.
Donald Trump is a quasi-fascist narcissist.
Conservatives should despise his libertine past, his racism and his dishonesty. They should despise that he would be willing to run as an independent and split the conservative vote. They should despise that Nazis and white supremacists like him.
Evangelicals should despise his extravagance, his worship of Mammon, and his lack of any spirituality.
Everyone else should be terrified by a person willing to spout misogyny, duck out of debates like a coward, personally attack those he disagrees with, plaster his name onto everything, flatly lie about empirical reality, make up policies, and his utter lack of any political credentials worth nothing.
Impeach Trump - he will immediately take away health care for millions of Americans with his Billionaire Cabinet - without Congress
He lost the popular vote by 3 million and his approval rating is 37 % - how did the Billionaires in this country rig the election !
I voted for Trump and would again. If everyone would stop fighting against Trump he could get a lot more done. I don't blame him, I blame the ones making it harder for him to do his job.
