Default Trump haters versus Trump lovers

I am wondering just how many people view Donald Trump in a nuanced way--just as every president prior to him had been viewed.

It seems that the Trump Haters are infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome; nothing that he does is pleasing to them.

On the Other hand, the Trump Lovers seem...well, almost like a cult: Everything that he does is the very embodiment of perfection, as he is some sort of secular messiah.

I am wondering if we could just get back to a more normal, nuanced view of the man.

I myself see a President that has done a number of things that I approve of (tax cuts, cutting regulations, etc). His instincts in dealing with foreign leaders appears to be pretty much correct. While opposing tariffs, I believe that his use of them has yielded positive results so far.

At the same time, I see him as a brutish and narcissistic person. He is somewhat thin skinned and results to what I would call childish responses to people that criticize him.

I really don't care for the man as a person, but he seems to be doing a good job as a President. I am planning on voting for him in the upcoming election.

Trump is a d*ck at a time when this country needs a d*ck...

Ever since Reagan, our choices have been the establishment pushover on the Left against the establishment pushover on the Right...That choice was removed, and for those who liked those two choices, they're lashing out because those two choices were taken away...

You are correct. I don't mind how he interacts with others within our government or with the leaders of other nations. However, I do believe is a crass and narcissistic person and god's gift to women. Again, I don't care for Trump the person but do believe that his job performance warrants another 4 years.
