Mostly just showcase stuff, except for the big tax cut to the rich that will require cuts to programs to those who need help.

The economic performance is mostly Obama’s work. Tens of millions of Americans will be without healthcare insurance before long.

Actual positive achievements of Trump: he played a lot of golf.

Here we see how Trumpy is hurting his base:

FORD MULLING LAYOFFS OVER TARIFFS Ford Motor Co. is reportedly preparing to initiate major layoffs after suffering a $1 billion blow to its profit due to Trump’s tariffs. [HuffPost]

And:

NEW NAFTA IS ALL ABOUT CORPORATE PROFITS Trump’s new NAFTA is an agreement with Mexico and Canada that has generous protections for Republican-aligned industries, including Big Pharma and fossil fuel polluters; no meaningful environmental protections; weak consumer safeguards; and no mechanism to enforce the moderately improved labor standards contemplated by the deal. [HuffPost]

They will still vote for the douchebag tho.

He is inflicting increased costs on the morons who voted for him by raising tariffs. Stock market there crashed. The illusion Trumpy has done anything much won’t last much longer.

here's another achievement for thrumpy


Melania Trump says she might be world's most bullied person, there are people in White House she doesn't trust




http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-10-12/melania-trump-says-she-is-most-bullied-person/10367934

he really shouldn't bully his wife



it does sound like she's taking lessons from thrumpy ... along the lines of 'I got the biggest crowds ever', 'I am the smartest', 'I''ve achieved more than any other president in history", and now 'I'm the most bullied'

................ Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says President Donald Trump took off the “handcuffs” placed on Border Patrol agents by the previous administration. The result: illegal border crossings dropped to a 45-year low, he says.

Homan appeared on Fox News and reported the impact of an aggressive border security/immigration enforcement policy.

“Under this president, who’s now letting us do our job and taking the handcuffs off the men and women of the Border Patrol and ICE, arrests are up,” Homan told Sandra Smith on Fox News. ...............

Meanwhile idiot Trump has launched a second day of criticism against the Federal Reserve on Thursday, calling its interest rate increases a “ridiculous” policy that was making it more expensive for his administration to finance its escalating deficits.

https://www.theage.com.au/business/markets/going-loco-trump-ramps-up-his-attack-on-the-ridiculous-fed-20181012-p50975.html

His huge, unfunded tax cut to the rich obviously has no implications for his escalating deficits :WTF He really IS a dickhead!
