Admittingly I am and was for Donald Trump once he secured the Republican nomination. I was strongly against Hillary Clinton and considered her a non-candidate and would have supported almost anyone over her. That said I wish Trump all the success possible and hope he is, as he said he would be, the most successful and most loved President ever.
Okay saying that I have to admit, and say, that I believe he most definitely has the patient on the biggest ego of any President we have had in history. Some would say he has unlimited confidence and is just confident in his abilities but then given much of his bombastic actions and how he says much of what he does I have to believe that a great deal has to do with his own personal ego which thankfully is fed by his current position and continued ability to draw supporting crowds to his stomp speeches that he gives from time to time.
All that said I have to also admit that I'm fearful that the promised "good times" or "GREAT TIMES" as promised, might come up short or greatly subdued. Not that it's the fault of President Trump that Obamacare hasn't been defunded or eliminated but President Trump does have, at his disposal, measures or actions which could go a long way toward beefing up the confidence that people initially had in him. I believe he should immediately remove the Government subsidiaries on Healthcare/Insurance that Obama placed there to give Congress and their staffers GOLD type Insurance plans that means they have absolutely NO DEDUCTIBLES with their Healthcare. They should suffer the same problems the American people do and maybe then they might consider to take more immediate action to remedy the problems.
Today we hear of yet another record Stock Market Gain and it all seems without end and feeds upon optimism surrounding President Trump's agenda and promises, specifically the promises that are business friendly such as removing restrictions and regulations around Obamacare and other Government imposed costly (to business) actions. Also chief among the optimistic hopes is the reduction of the Cooperate and business tax rate that was promised that would bring down America's tax rate to below much of the rest of the Worlds and for many would greatly increase investment in America again and bring about many more jobs. That is the great problem though and the catch 22. Without the tax cuts, this year, the great optimism will (my opinion) turn into great depression among those who thought it was a done deal that certain tax measures would take affect immediately if not surely by the end of the first year of Trump's First term.
As I see it what goes up (fast) can come down (faster). I truly believe without the promised tax rate reduction along with little to no action on the promised infrastructure improvements or projects will lead to a horrendous drop on Wall Street that will eliminate the optimistic gains that came due to Trump's election and promises. I don't think President Trump anticipated the opposition and obstruction that he would get from the Democrats or at least the degree of it and I certainly am confident that he didn't anticipate the destructive opposition that his own party would give him. Government, by design, moves slowly but it should be apparent, after the last election, what the American public, as a whole wanted and wants, and thus although the Republicans don't have an absolute majority they do have control of all branches of Government and therefore will be held responsible for their inability to get things done even in the face of total Democratic obstruction and opposition.
Many in the Republican party still want to see Trump fail because of who he is and what he is even if that means the destruction of their own party and the loss of one or more branch of Government. We are at a point now that President Trump needs to take a note from Obama's notebook and start making executive orders to stir Congress to act and wake up. Short of action on tax rates and infrastructure projects/spending that was promised, given the total inability to stop Obamacare, could very well be a political snowball rolling downhill and alone destroy people's optimism that the promises will be kept and addressed. Time will tell but my fears are that the Stock Market gains may be erased and financial destruction may loom just in the coming months.
