Polls show that Donald Trump’s approval rating has gone down to around 35%. The polls indicate voters don’t like him. So that should tell us he won’t serve a second term.
No president of the United States can serve in office for more than 10 years. That means a sitting president can be re-elected for a second term.
But my head still hurts just how badly the predictions of 2016 went south. Hillary Clinton was regarded as the candidate to win the election by an impressive margin. The New York Times gave her a very wide chance of success, even though as the night progressed it became obvious the two candidates switched sides and Trump won by a wide margin of electoral votes.
Since then I’ve become a critic of polls. They obviously don’t work.
The President of the United States, Donald Trump, wants to create a new branch ￼ of the military with equal but separate powers with the air-force. He calls it “Space Force.”
I don’t think this sounds like a good idea. Are we now going to militarize space? The Internet is already producing thousands of images to mock the idea.
All news is bad news. Bad news sells.
Increasingly, however, there are human interest stories dubbed “happy news” at the end of news broadcasts, but it seems to diminish in the light of the chaos that I see going on the world.
Cyber attacks, White House in turmoil, Trump increasingly isolated, Russia buzzing our planes within 20 feet, North Korea, the terrorists in Syria and Afghanistan, firing the one guy in charge of investigating the President.
Even if you get all your news from Fox and Rush Limbaugh, surely you must sense there is chaos. Every other major news organization in the world is reporting on it.
It’s depressing. I’m really trying to understand.
I’d like this blog to steer towards science, but sometimes, I just have to say something.
So here it is: something.
For better or for worse Donald J. Trump is not going away.
Much to the chagrin of the Democratic party and half the country, it is unlikely Trump will be impeached or somehow replaced before the end of his term in office. The era of Trump has begun. The world has changed. Much.
Yes, we all know the President has made outrageous statements and unverified claims before, during and after the election campaign, an￼d he will obviously continue to do so into the foreseeable future. That’s not going to stop. Neither will his conservative agenda.
Trump is making progress toward fulfilling many if not most of his campaign promises. To his supporters he is a dream-come-true President that is standing up for what many Americans have wanted all along. On the other side, to those who will be negatively impacted, he is a nightmare.
Be prepared. The dark side of the Force has awakened.
