This evil man should be impeached as soon as possible. He is a huge disgrace to America and the world. He only wants to give benefits to rich conservative white men and wants everybody else to suffer. He's so rude to others and everything he's done so far in his awful presidency is so bad. I don't care what any of you say, if you roast me, I won't listen. Impeach him now.

Creating new jobs you can thank Obama for, Trump had the benefit of becoming President after a president that had improved the economy and unfortunately people don't understand how policy works, they take forever to come into effect, right now the only thing you can thank Trump for was the border control - germshep24

I don't hate Trump or anything but he definitely is controversial. You have these republicans saying "Oh yes, Donald Trump should withdraw from the Paris Agreement" and these liberals saying "No! Trump is going to make Earth look like crap! ". How much support and backlash does he get on each of his actions? - CobaltCards

I will only say this Trump should not have become President and because of this both he and us have now been but into a precarious situation. Trump doesn't know anything about his job, we just have to ride the wave until his Presidency is over and hopefully in 2 years the next President can undo the damage done from his lack of knowledge. - germshep24

An impolite, blowhard jerk, but actually much better than Obama at policy issues, particularly the economy. As Bill Clinton often said "It's the economy, stupid".

It is so ironic that people give Trump credit for the state of the economy even though it was Obama's Presidency that did it. If Obama didn't do well with the economy then Trump's would be hated for the state of the economy right now instead of praised - germshep24

Well, I won't deny how people perceive him is polarizing. On the bright side, at least his approval rating is pretty good. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Approval rating is fake. They don't even ask the whole population - 2storm

He is going to look like a total chump after Donald Trump is done. Obama's eight years of "new normal" for the economy is being destroyed by the growth under Trump in just the last two. And that is just economics. If you run down the list of other areas under the POTUS' watch, Obama is going to look like a fool. Not to lefties of course, but to anyone willing to step back and think about it.

Why you people against Obama? Osama died yes but it wasn't his fault. Osama crashed planes and almost destroyed the US Planes. You people hate him because he's black. I just know it

I am sick of you people hating this man.
