Should Donald Trump resign? | The Tylt
President Trump has seen better days. His approval ratings, even with far-more-favorable pollster Rasmussen, are hitting record lows again. People are openly talking his about impeachment. Critics cite the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, the sudden troop withdrawal from Syria and Afghanistan, and the continuing investigations into the president as reasons he should step down. Meanwhile, supporters and the president himself continue to trumpet his successes. What do you think?
Should Donald Trump resign?
President Trump has a rocky few weeks. His secretary of defense resigned in protest. A majority of Americans blame him for the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. Word has trickled out that he has tried to conceal his meetings with Vladimir Putin, and that the FBI launched a counterintelligence probe because the agency was unsure about whether or not the president was actively working for Russia. Let that one sink in.
With problems like these, no wonder Trump is tweeting about Jeff Bezos' divorce. The never-ending cycle of dysfunction and lack of professional maturity have taken its toll on the electorate. The president's inability to govern actually threatens our national security. Trump should take all the "executive time" he wants and step down.
Mattis leaving? Good riddance, we're all tired of neverending wars. Government shutdown? That's on the Democrats, who spent the shutdown partying in Puerto Rico and attending "Hamilton" on lobbyists' dime. Putin, again? Wake us up when there's actual evidence.
For all the anger directed toward Trump, he has been remarkably good at executing the conservative agenda. The job numbers continue to look sterling. Trump's approval ratings among his own party have only gone up. Conservatives voted Trump in and seem happy with the results. Why should he step down now? He's just getting started.
