I tried to put a positive spin on Trump but got lots of bad comments.

I wrote a post at another site about Trump. I said this as a topic for discussion at myLot. The reactions about what I wrote were not all good ones. For one thing, I was trying to motivate people to stop criticizing the prez. I told people that 'You and I Voted for him' so we should "Give him a chance and stop finding fault with him. " The reactions were as follows - I was said to be disingenuous when I said, "You and I voted for him" - and I was told - "That wall will never get built."

Well, I know that silly.

I know that wall won't get built because it is a bad idea. Bad ideas don't get done when the majority of voters still think it is a waste of resources and now that we all know the tax payers will have to foot the bill no one will vote Yes to build that border wall. I think that many people did not vote for Trump and many or most of those who did not vote for Trump also mostly did not vote for Clinton either and many just opted out and did not vote for anybody.

I want it known here at personapaper that I, Anthony Davis am not in favor of building that WALL. Just saying. There are lots of good people at myLot. I had to find out for myself if anyone was paying attention.

I had to start a discussion that started off with showing positive motivation to support the president of these here United States. He is against drugs coming in to America from Mexico and so am I. He is against terrorism and so am I. I have nothing to argue in those two areas. As for health care that is both fair and affordable. Killing Obama care aka The Affordable Health Care Act is the wrong thing to happen. Instead of killing Obama care, we need to make it better by keeping all that is good about it in tact and adding more good things to it, not replace and repeal it. I find it a form of just showing bad judgement to just Tweet that 'I want to build a wall and Obama Care is dead.' These are neither of them positive statements. If we keep on this road by posting Tweets that condemn tran-genders in the military after all those men and women of tran-gender nature have served with respect to the rules of engagement and did their time fighting for our country's values, it is a sad thing and a bad thing to just Tweet, get rid of those trans-genders and let's not let any more of them enlist. It's just not good policy.

Bad tactics will only divide our country in half and then cause complete anarchy. Already we have the American Indian hating white people and we have whites who think they are better than blacks. We have too much hate and that will kill everything that is fundamentally right in America. If we can't keep the constitution upheld and respected what are we but a bunch of angry hypocrites? You can't get anything done when everyone is Tweeting hate and fake news all over the planet.

This is a very different presidency from any previous ones, it appears. People are worried, some are afraid and others are jubilant. A good leader needs tobring people together as far as possible.

And Trump unfortunately is pulling people apart and I do not see it getting back to normal in a matter of speaking, but only time will tell and of course history will teach us all a lesson in due course.

If you want to put a positive spin on anything Trump says or does you have two options.
Option 1: Keep it to yourself.
Option 2: Follow Trump on Twitter and tweet what you have to say directly to him.
Not that he'll read it. But at least you said what you had to say and moved on.

It all sounds so simple. but nothing is simple when it comes to politics. And yea I try to keep it to myself but can't seem to do it. I think my opinion is both favorable about him but in some ways critical. I see him in two different lights.

Hey Anthony - tough to really know how to address the phenomena that is Trump. I'm Canadian so don't have to wear it. Can see from your writing that you're a good-hearted guy, but I must question your suggestion that people should "give him a chance and stop finding fault with him." I suspect that the people who are "finding fault" are some of those who were horrified that there were enough American voters who were willing to elect as president a man who was so obviously a chronic liar, a misogynist, and a racist. He's ignorant - on a scale never previously witnessed in American politics. His narcissism is off the charts. This is all BLINDINGLY apparent.

I would suggest that no reasonable humane generous American could/should have voted for this creature.

To say you agree with him because he's against terrorism.......... uh which candidates were FOR terrorism? To say he is against drugs coming to America... seriously? That's like saying he's against asteroids hitting the planet. Or against - sadly - - CAT 5 storms hitting the continental USA. The thing is, if he was against the latter - the increasing ferocity of hurricanes for ex - he could've done better than to opt out of the Paris Accords on Climate Change.

What will it take Americans to wake up? How many thousands dead or displaced by the upset planet to recognize that we are in very dangerous times?

And liars at the helm don't help.

Okay, I feel foolish for posting it. But it did get you to admit to many factual things that need to be addressed. You have done well to add meaningful thoughts. I do not disagree with you on any of this, but I felt it was necessary to post it even though frankly I am embarrassed for it. I appreciate your comment. Have a good day.
