His fourth full day in office, with his pen:

Keystone pipeline is revived.

Eight years ago my son worked for a non-union pipeline construction company. His company was low bidder on the Texas section of the pipeline and was told they had the project.

Obama told the ownership consortium that they had to use only union workers on the entire pipeline or he would not approve it. His company was not awarded the construction contract and he lost a job he really enjoyed.

He became a life long Republican after that. :patriot:

Obama eventually broke his promise to the ownership consortium and never approved the pipeline even though they met all of his requirements.

The President of Mexico is doing everything but rushing the walls at the,White House to meet with Trump. Millenials expect everything, to happen instantly. There is more than just the last 8 years to overcome. Trump has not done, or said anything to give anyone the impression that he is not dedicated to fulfilling all of his campaign promises. The only ones to postulate that is the left wing media. If the people you are debating, are still getting their info from them, they are a lost cause, and will never catch up.

There is no rush to remove him. Comey has any and all info regarding HRC, Putin, and any other ongoing investigations. Comey, may have dropped the ball, or, more than likely had it taken from him, on the HRC server scandal, but he has not done or said anything in conflict with Trump's agenda. Trump can replace him at any time, and it may not be at the top of his to do list.

:iagree: well said! Both sides have denounced him and supported him within a few months of each other. Lol I am sure it is "lower" on his list. Trump has a plan, lets see where he is going with this.

Things are happening very fast in the oval office. The president seems to still be in campaign mode and concerned about things like inauguration day crowd size and popular vote so it doesn't seem like he'd be able to give much thought to what's happening. Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall to see how things are being developed and who is really doing it?

Dale, don't buy in to what the media says about what Trump is placing value on. They are doing everything to goad, criticize, and ridicule his every word. He has responded to some of them, which has given them more ammunition. They hate the fact that he is using social media to communicate directly with the American people, and not going through them.
Instead look at the results. He has hit the ground running, and begun a process, that will have positive effects across the country, and around the world. He has had conversations with world leaders, and has planned meetings with several of them. The orders he signed, especially regarding the pipeline, were just reinforcements of agreements that BHO had reneged on. The only thing slowing him down, is the Congressional Committee, delaying the confirmation of his Cabinet members. Once they are in place, the speed at which things get done will increase exponentially. JMHO

NAFTA is the reason many US industries are in decay. All these "free trade agreements " stacked the deck against the USA. Foreign governments subsidize their products making it impossible to compete against them.

At some point you are going to realize how Trump is playing the opposition. The President can take two minutes of his day to tweet about something like crowd size, popular vote, etc and the left goes crazy all day about it. Meanwhile President Trump is working his agenda. Things are being accomplished. The swamp is large and deep.

Dale, you choose to not understand as is doesn't fit with your agenda and political position. Do you not realize the bigger picture that Trump is trying to bring attention? It's about the media being biased and dishonest, not the size of,the crowd.

It is very difficult to maintain democratic republic with a dishonest biased press.

The Dow crosses 20,000 for the first time in history. I'll have to do a little research to see what its performance has been under the Trump influence, but I know the first was a record high close last November 10, after the vote...and that record was barely over 18,000.

ETA: The Dow has so far set 17 new record closing highs since the election. Right now, it's currently sitting around 20,040.
