Trump needs time to fix the nation

I am so fed up with uninformed, unthinking people writing into the Last Word about President Trump and alleged chaos and lack of progress. He has done more in a little over a month to return the country to sanity than anybody in living memory. These people forget that it is the Congress that makes and changes laws.

It took President Obama's Democrat Congress from Jan. 20, 2009 until March 23, 2010 to present for Obama's signature the disastrous Affordable Healthcare Act. That's a year and two months. Let's see what Trump and his Republican Congress have done by a year from now.

It took eight years of mismanagement to create the sad economic and divided condition the country is in. If Trump hasn't improved the state of the union in a year, then the Trump haters may have reason to start beefing. But, if the stock market crashes on Trump's watch it will be, in the opinion of many economic sages, the result of the Federal Reserve's misguided attempt to pump up the economy by issuing trillions of worthless dollars and Obama's doubling the national debt.
