5. Other observations

The DACA deadline is one that Trump created artificially. It seems its main purpose is to use the DACA kids as a bargaining chip in other negotiatons. SAD!

In addition to just having come out, the infrastructure bill is so complex it will take all sides a while to sort things out. From what I read, on its face it heavily punishes Blue states that voted for Hillary, transferring funds from them to Red states that voted for Trump. SAD!

I don't know where he's getting his information on the military. Oh, that's right -- where he gets all his information, Fox News. Our military is still more powerful than the next 10 countries combined. Increasing the stockpile of nuclear weapons goes against nearly 40 years of efforts of the U.S. and Russia (then the USSR) to reduce its number. (I imagine Trump will want to return to atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons, under the guise of "Letting the rest of the world see our military might." Plus it's pretty.) Providing even more money than the military has requested is insane, especially since their wish list is usually padded with everything they can imagine. Trump wouldn't know that because he has absolutely no experience with government and the military. SAD!

The military parade -- bigger and better than any in the history of the world -- that Trump wants for the sole purpose of feeding his huge ego has about an 81% disapproval rate. It will cost millions of dollars and weeks of preparation time which could be better used for actual training. SAD!

The Dow is at $24,485, after a near-vertical drop from its high of $26,616 three weeks ago. Trump hasn't addressed this precipitous loss in market value, or done anything to attempt calm investors. SAD!

He still thinks Nazis are good people, women who are abused are liars, child molesters deserved to be Senators, (black) NFL players who don't stand for the National Anthem are sons of a bitch (even though he himself doesn't know the words, see below), and anybody who doesn't applaud his every utterance is a traitor. SAD!

Puerto Rico is still in a bad way. A no-bid contract to restore power for all of the island was awarded to a two-person company, while another contract for 5 million meals was awarded to a one-person operation which totally failed (duh!). Even with all the continuing serious problems on the island, FEMA said it was pulling its support for the island and would have done so had there not been a hue and cry across the nation and on both sides of the aisle. SAD!

The cost of the Wall and the Trump Tax Cuts for corporations and the very wealthy is going to result in cuts to Medicare, Medicare and food stamps. SAD!

Robert Mueller is still plugging along. GLAD!

Trump doesn't know the words to the National Anthem. SAD!
