And as president, he signed the biggest tax cut for the wealthy ever into law and is backing the full repeal of the estate tax.

He "intimidated" carrier by bribing them with tax payer dollars and they packed up anyways after the headlines, other deals were already in place before he even got into office, they just issued press releases to get on his side, and anyone who trusts Foxconn to follow through with their promises is a full, AND even if they bring all the jobs, it's probably not worth 4 billion in taxpayer subsidies.

He has publicly floated the idea of restricting speech and making it easier to sue the press.

He’s definitely the most pro-LGBT president in history, although this is rarely discussed.

why do you think Trump is pro-LGBT? because he puts his gay son-in-law in charge of everything?

Trump's politics are basically what they always were: Moderate Democrat from saner times, circa 1980's/1990's.

I will add:

7. He believes in prison reform.

"New York State is facing a $2.3 billion budget deficit, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo believes it's largely due to the Trump administration's tax reforms which, on the flip side, have taxed the rich and may be encouraging wealthy residents to leave."

“This is the flip side. Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich. The rich leave, and now what do you do?”

Wrt 5, liberals stopped being pro freedom of speech about 5 years ago. Stopped being protectionist and pro working class before that

I don’t think trump favors higher taxes on the wealthy either

A. I agree he is somewhat “liberal”. He’s more of a 1946 democrat than a modern democrat or classic republican, though

B. A is why I mostly dislike trump. The 1946 democratic platform was racist, classist, and statist. Basically all the things I hate.

C. 5 is blatantly false. Just bc it’s in the constitution doesn’t mean trump likes it. He’s pretty low key on religious criticism-but would go hard on the press and general criticism of him if he could.
