But why behind glass ? Someone could have easily shot him when he came out from behind the glass. And what's that go to do with the spirit of Xmas

It is a special bulletproof glass, it is more difficult to shoot a moving target

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Apparently, the US gained more after 1 year of a Trump presidency than 4 years of Obama.

Looking forward to another year of Presidential trolling.

I’m asking this as out of genuine curiosity. Gained what? What is the measure?

It's not quantifiable, and there is no scientific or mathematical basis for it, but it is nonetheless a fact.

So... by a similar logic... the claims of Trump's collusion with the Russians are also true, even if there is no evidence?

He's had nearly 90 accomplishments in terms of economy, regulations and judiciary. GDP growth is about 3.5%, and some of the lowest level of unemployment in about two decades. Housing is booming, economic optimism is up, income is higher, military and law enforcement moral is up. With about 11 Obama legacy effects undone, while the consequences of Trump's legacy will carry on for a couple of decades. All in less than a year's work.

"about 11 Obama legacy effects undone, while the consequences of Trump's legacy will carry on for a couple of decades." No doubt the next President will undo Trump's legacy just as quickly

Very unlikely as Obama's legacies are mostly through executive orders that can be rescinded with a memo. Court appoints and legislation is not easily undone. So you'll find most of Obama's legacies quickly undone, while Trump's legacies endure 20 or more years.

Obama is a footnote, while Trump is a significant turning point.

Really?
Obama signed an average of 35 EOs per year while Trump has already signed 55.

Legislation?
Trump has signed fewer laws in his first year than any other of the recent 10 Presidents; 95 laws versus 118 for Obama.

You know the song Worried Man Blues - Woody Guthrie?
"It takes a worried man to sing a worried song "

Quote:
Donald J. Trump‏@realDonaldTrump

WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier.
FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.”
And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!
Hope these thoughts did not hinder his golf swing! 97th game this year.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Former President Obama is America’s “most admired man” for the 10th consecutive year, according to new survey data from Gallup.
Hillary Clinton was named the most admired woman for the 16th year in a row, with 9 percent of mentions.

Source

Trump came second (in the male category)

Meanwhile former White House ethics lawyer Richard Painter about Trump tweets attacking FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, called the messages Trump sent over the weekend "stupid." He said that Trump's tweets indicate a "pattern" of obstructing law enforcement.
A Former Watergate prosecutor, Jill Wine-Banks, also said Tuesday that President Trump's new attacks on the FBI could amount to obstruction of justice.

Here you are: Time magazine referred to Obama as the most secretive president ever so much for his transparency.

Maybe he uses your tactic of when asking for evidence he suggests to "look it up on google".

Eh, that is a meaningless poll. Anyways, Obama and Hillary are long gone and ain't coming back. Because he FBI reports to Trump, the obstruction allegations also couldn't really hold water. Its just added to try to make Fake News seem more interesting. A sitting president can't be charged with a crime, he can only be impeached by Congress.

Oh, and Trump is said to be getting a Jerusalem train station to his name:

What did Hillary or Obama get?
