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
Like the other person said, his approval rating was pretty low when he started, but it always was. I'm not going to throw in a bunch of evidence to support my conspiracy and make a million character essay, but the polls were definitely controversial. - Zakattack2
His approval rating was pretty low when he first started. Although, it seems to be growing, though I can't say for sure until I see the Gallup polls. Either way, you can't deny how much of a drama king he was during the elections. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Many of us think he's an incompetent, thin skinned, tantruming, preteen, vindictive, intellectually bereft and feckless and lazy and as selfish and hoarding as they come.

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt Romney.
When history fairly scrutinizes Obama's record, this country and the world will see him as he truly was; a master of deception, a charlatan and a first class "used car salesman".
He's heavily controversial. You have one side claiming he is good because he drops unemployment rates while the other side complains about mass debt increase. :/ - CobaltCards
Well, I won't deny how people perceive him is polarizing. On the bright side, at least his approval rating is pretty good. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
His "Iran Nuclear Deal" could very well bring an end to the world. Thanks a bunch.
