Republican? :

Trump is nobody’s idea of a cerebral conservative, taking in history’s triumphs and failures before proposing policy.  He’s a visceral guy with a gut that makes decisions and a mind that justifies them afterward.  That kind of personality in charge of anything, let alone the most powerful government on Earth, is alarming.

Trump tells DREAMers to ‘rest easy’
[His] hypocrisy knows no bounds.  Do you remember during the campaign how he pounded Jeb Bush for wanting to keep the “DREAMer” program?  Do you remember how Trump said he wanted to end birthright citizenship?  Well, by keeping the DREAMer program, not only does Trump keep birthright citizenship, but he expands it to not just babies born to illegals, but children of illegals brought to America.

Trump, The Man:

[Trump] craves respect more than almost anything else, and yet respect remains agonizingly elusive — in part because he takes everything too personally…  The presidency… promises to only heighten [his] sense of entitlement to respect and exacerbate his inevitable resentment when he doesn’t receive it.  So we’ll continue on divided, angry and untrusting…  Trump will be the third president in a row to promise to unite the country, and he will almost certainly be the third in a row to fail.

https://stream.org/trumps-lust-respect-makes-national-unity-implausible/

and…

Not all negative media reports about the Trump administration are ‘fake news’ and the president’s endless trumpeting of half truths and lies about how well his administration is doing needs to be reported on and the record corrected.  Trump doesn’t want the press to report honestly.  He wants them to report on him positively.  In that respect, what difference is there between Trump’s need for adulation and the press’s desire to destroy him?   We’ve got a compulsive liar as a president and an unthinking, reflexively hostile media reporting on him.  We’re doomed.

Instead of letting Mr. Bannon’s team steer the conservative movement away from Biblical alignment, let’s [all] pray and actively push this ship back on the course toward true conservatism as it was understood by the pro-family, anti-homosexuality Founding Fathers… we’re at [a] fork in the road TODAY that will determine whether the Trump administration goes with the Bible or with the [LGBT] crowd tomorrow.  The results could not be more dichotomous nor more consequential.  If ever there was a time when Christian leaders needed to take a firm persuasive stand, it is NOW.  That means we need an immediate, unequivocal and robust rejection of the idea of the myth of the ‘gay conservative’ by the church.
