Dick Meyer had an interesting column on the Five Worst Americans in History.  He polled academics, historians, political scientists, etc. to come up with an informal list.

It is informal and not scientific, but interesting.  Serial killers, criminals, etc. were not considered. 

 

Yes, Trump did make the list - in a three way tie for number two.

Others are Nixon (1), Bedford Forest and Joseph McCarthy (tie for 2 also),  J. Edgar Hoover (5).

Several others also received votes.

 

While there was concern that it might be too early to consider Trump, the overall consideration was that he has already done enough to make the list.

Call me crazy but had a Muslim killed two white Christians in Portland I suspect our president would have said something




I'm not exactly surprised that Jake didn't give this Oregon incident a blazing headline.

I guess he's waiting for a Muslim in America to have any kind of charge laid against him (including jaywalking) before he gives it the BOLD TYPE HEADLINE treatment here as a warning for all.

Anyone think Trump might make a comment about this incident of violence? As with Jake, it wouldn't further his political agenda, so don't hold your breath.

Trump’s “America First“ Infrastructure Plan: Let Saudi Arabia and Blackstone Take Care of It-

 

"....The two that made the news — a $110 billion arms deal and a $100 million gift to an Ivanka Trump-inspired endowment — are remarkable in their own right.

 

But the third, which was rolled out much more quietly, is no less stunning: The Saudi kingdom joined forces with a top outside adviser to Trump to build a $40 billion war chest to privatize U.S. infrastructure.

The vehicle would employ the same kind of public-private partnerships, known as P3s, the Trump administration has endorsed for its trillion dollar infrastructure plan. The deal hands over control of projects to rebuild American roads and bridges to the private sector and a foreign country....

Immigration arrests have jumped nearly 40% under President Trump. http://bit.ly/2qW4QEq pic.twitter.com/VWdraFZvRa

 

 

 

I would say the only area where the Trump admin has made major progress is on illegal immigration.    Arrest of criminal illegal immigrants are up,   deportation is up,  and southern border crossing way down. 

 

While there isn't funding for a border wall,  such a 'wall' was never necessary in the first place.   Instead just patch the high travel areas (mostly in Texas now),  and increase the number of agents in these areas.

 

Oh, and that travel ban was a poorly designed political stunt;  Instead the admin should have just enhanced the vetting process.
