Its very easy to only see all of his failures, especially if you only read from left leaning sources, so im wondering if there was anything I missed.

Has Trump objectively succeeded in fulfilling any promises? It seriously seems like hes failed on half, and not even tried with the other half.

I am trying to take a neutral stance and genuinely see if he has actually done anything at all? The best I can think of is trading tax cuts for some jobs?..

Edit 2:

I guess even much of the above either didn't really happen or was in motion prior to him becoming pres.

Nothing? Travel ban? Failed twice. Healthcare? Failed, and on its way to failing again. Firing off bombs like a lunatic isn't helping matters. And now he is trying to do healthcare again next week. Oh yeah, don't forget disgracing world leaders. He has done one thing really well though and that is playing golf.

He really is incompetent.

Also said he would defeat ISIS in 30 days, and have a cyber security plan in 90 days. Its day 91, failed both of those.

But yes, SCOTUS is the accomplishment. Even though that was a bit of a shitshow and took the GOP having to throw out established rules.

I don't have total faith that he won't reverse himself on this, but it is a major accomplishment for good. Probably the only one.

Some of the failed promises here are pretty lol-worthy. You think you've heard every stupid thing about him, and then...

"Culture: Broken If I become president, we're all going to be saying 'Merry Christmas' again."

"Immigration: Broken Deport "criminal illegal immigrants" within one hour of being sworn in."

"World: Broken Rather than throw the Chinese president a state dinner, buy him "a McDonald's hamburger and say we've got to get down to work"."

Just like they did for Obama not confirming Garland? He was no liberal. Obama was pleasing both sides.

Yes, lean further into partisan appointment of judges if you can't agree, that will definitely not tear your country apart.

btw, no, it isn't true that Democrats would support nobody. It took arm-twisting just to get many democrats not to support Gorsuch

I hope you feel the same if he wants to enact some shitty law that he can't get people to vote for and brute forces it.
