Hmm.. I don't remember prominent "and Congress" added as a disclaimer to any of Biden's claimed accomplishments.

Anytime House Democrats refuse to work with the President it's a failure of Trump's. But anything they pass accrues to their benefit, not Trump's. Of course President Pen and Phone had the right idea.

Actually, to be accurate, for a number of the items on this list, people should be thanking Obama and Congress, since they were things approved before Trump even took office.

The point is there is no conditioning of any accomplishment claimed by Biden sharing credit with Congress. Yet you insist on inserting that qualifier into Trump's accomplishments as if he was dependent on the indulgence of Congressional Democrats instead of being under constant attack.

Partisan tribalism in the form of zealous adherence to the central principle of Orange man bad is what drives today's Democrats. Nancy Pelosi displays a seething hatred for the President daily. Committee chairs like Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler openly lie in their attempts to run the President from office. Maxine Waters exhorts the mob to violently confront Trump administration officials when they are seen in public. VP nominee Kamala Harris endorses violent riots as long as they are against Trump. Joe Biden only emerges from his basement to issue stinging condemnations of Trump and tepid criticism of rioting when his handlers calculate it will boost his partisan standing. There is plenty of blue tribalism at work.

Oh puleeze. Tell you what,,,,; Name them and explain how President Trump was forced to approve those items against his will. Otherwise you have posted nothing more than a worthless opinion.

Anyone with the slightest intelligence should know our government process bridges election changes. Trump occupies the "OFFICE" of President which is perpetual. We do not form a new government every four years.
