I might agree that most of Trump's policies were beneficial but I don't agree that the net effect of Trump was beneficial.

His trade policy was disastrous.  Even by his own ignorant metric - the trade deficit - it was an epic failure.

He presided over the greatest increase in national debt ever.  Even as a percentage of GDP the debt increased faster than at any time since WWII.

Since the true tax rate is the national debt since that debt must be paid - in one way or the other by the people - he presided over the largest tax increase in history.

He surrendered a huge portion of prestige and respect internationally.

He damaged American conservatism for the foreseeable future.

He ended America's unblemished record of peaceful transfers of power tearing at the fabric of the social compact.

He was the first president since Hoover to lose the House, the Senate and the Presidency in four years.

He was a national disaster.

Agreed, in totality, the overall effect of his policies.would be a negative.

One thought, for Obama's 8 years, he increased the national debt from ~$7T t0 ~$20T.  In 4 years Trump took it to ~$27T. Although COVID spending played a significant part, that was a bit higher rate of increase. The treasury took in more revenue each year after his tax reduction, however, his profligate spending went unchecked. Eventually, our national debt would be our downfall.

You see them numbers ah doh give ah SHITE about them.  Two numbers ah care about is the 27.8 million and 487k. the first people affected by COVID and the second the deaths. To me nothing else matters.  Plus he could be responsible for 3/4 of the world population.  When America sneezes, the world ketch the flu.
