  1. Well, most of the items on that list are either failures in my mind (Brett Kavanaugh, pulling out of the Iran deal…), things he probably had little to do with (middle class wages have been rising for a number of years, so has oil production), and things that are political slogans (smashing the caliphate, holding the line on migrant caravans), or merely symbolic (moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem). Let me see, what is actually positive on that list…. Confronting China might be if only he were a bit more strategic about it – right now, I think he is losing the battle because by pulling out of treaties, China has increased its influence.
