1. I don't like any of his initiatives except one

I don't like tax cuts mainly for the very rich top 1%.
I do not like dismantling of the EPA and raping the environment.
I don't like the huge increases on military. Such a waste!
I do not like killing ACA mandate which meant everyone was contributing to healthcare. Now the healthy young can opt out.
I do not like packing the supreme court with right wing justices.

The only issue I like is trying to do something about the ugly big annual foreign trade deficits, one of the main causes of middle class manufacturing jobs disappearing. I guess even a dark cloud has a silver lining?
