Donald Trump is doing a very good job as President. Do you accept this debate challenge?


I accept the challenge. Set forth your contention, best of luck.
Debate Round No. 1


Looking back on President Donald Trump"s first year in office, he has compiled a shockingly strong record and long list of accomplishments. As was also the case with his rise to the presidency, President Trump has broken several records for a first year commander-in-chief and fulfilled many of his key campaign promises.

1)According to Politico, "Trump has solid evidence when he brags about the stock market."

This link provides a chart showing the Dow Jones Industrial Average since Trump's election victory in November 2016. It shows that from the time Trump won the election until his Jan. 5 tweet about how well the market was doing, the Dow rose from 18,589.7 to 2,5075.1, which is about 35%.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average's highest closing record in history is 26,616.71 set on January 26, 2018. Then it finally peaked, stopped climbing, and corrected. Before the correction, the Dow had set 96 new record closing highs since the 2016 presidential election.

2)One good thing that Trump does is he doesn't play around with dictators and terrorists.

A)According to Marc A. Thiessen of the left leaning "Washington Post", Trump "enforced President Barack Obama"s red line against Syria"s use of chemical weapons." When the regime of Bashar al-Assad used a toxic nerve agent on innocent men, women and children, Trump didn't wring his hands. He acted quickly and decisively, restoring America's credibility on the world stage that Obama had squandered."

B)He has taken a hard line with Russia. Trump approved a $47 million arms package for Ukraine, sent troops to the Poland/Russia border and imposed new sanctions on Moscow for violating the "Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty".

C)Donald Trump has even now set up a meeting with the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, something that seemed impossible in the years before. He had taken a hard line with Un, even creating a coalition with China, via sanctions, to squash his abilities.

3)Foreign Military successes-

A)He got NATO allies to kick in $12 billion more toward our collective security."Decades of begging by the Bush and Obama administrations failed to get NATO allies to meet their past financial commitments to the alliance, but Trump"s tough talk to affirm America's Article V commitment was what it took. NATO is stronger as a result. Negotiations are different when people believe the negotiator won't back down.

B)He has essentially eliminated the ISIS physical caliphate. Trump removed the constraints Obama placed on our military and let it drive the terrorists from their strongholds. Many military personnel complained that past rules of engagement and diplomacy tactics were putting them in danger and helping ISIS Trump came in, and the military had ISIS running for its lives. Sadly, if this had been the prior case, imagine how many of ISIS' victims wouldn't now be dead? How many ancient relics would still be safe and in tact in the Middle East?

4)He is installing conservative judges who will preside for decades. With his appointment of"Neil M. Gorsuch, Trump secured a conservative majority on the Supreme Court, and he has moved at a fast pace to"fill the federal appeals courts"with young conservative judges.

Why does this matter? The left has decided the rule of law and common sense is whatever they want on any given day. Examples?

In California, they have actually put an illegal alien into state office. Why not a Russian or a Chinese spy? What's to stop that? I mean, they're good people. Not all Russians and Chinese are moles, spies, espionage artists.....

The mayor of Oakland actually warned illegals, some who were violent criminals, of an incoming ICE raid. And sanctuary cities are actually harboring criminals from deportation. Why? "To keep families together". Really? If I get nailed, will you let me loose to keep my family together? Of course not.

There are places where illegal aliens can literally drive around without insurance with no penalty, and they don't have to worry about losing their car. They literally have rights that citizens do not have. Hopefully one doesn't hit you in traffic.....

Open borders-

Much of the left wants open borders. They always view it from the viewpoint of Mexico, but completely ignore the Pandora box. There are Russians who literally want Alaska. Oh good. Just move your butt in. We are an open borders society. You want citizenship? You're dreamers? Well just come on in. I can hear the Russian National Anthem playing now as Russians and the Chinese just March into America and happily use leftist immigration policies in a takeover...

The point? This country needs Donald Trump. This country needs pro America policies. And I'm not sure how long it would take for chaos to takeover and the rule of law to die if anti-Trumpian policies are implemented for much longer.

You need to present a clear understanding of President.

To the best of basic knowledge the democracy as only presented an Executive officer to the Whitehouse and executive Branch of Governing. The democracy has failed as a whole to address any United Sates Constitutional representation. This is however not a crime as a representation of some kind is being made.

My reason for being unable to support the idea of President Trump is by understanding possibility of an illegal female President as a United State. A woman who is to represent the United States Constitution must come forth in an equal verbal witness account as Prasedera or some other unique title addressing the true legal importance of this position.

It should be know that a foreign nation does not hold the burdens of the United Sates Constitution and should not be expected or used as example to resolve legal boundaries it creates.
