Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

A new indictment has been unsealed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The latest indictment accuses Manafort, with Gates’s help, of secretly retaining a group of former senior European politicians to take positions that were favorable to Ukraine as part of their illegal lobbying work for Kiev’s government. That work included lobbying in the United States.

Manafort wired over $2 million from his offshore accounts to pay these former politicians, the indictment alleges.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Despite Trump's repeated pledges to get undocumented immigrants "out" of the country he has actually deported fewer than Obama.

In 2017, the Trump administration deported nearly 215,000 immigrants according to ICE statistics, 13% fewer than the nearly 250,000 deported by Obama in 2016.

In 2017 under Trump, ICE made routine arrests of more than 155,000 immigrants, in 2016 the Obama administration arrested almost 110,000.

It makes him someone who did not deliver his campaign promises?

Since he is arresting more people than Obama but deporting fewer then the result is the pool of immigrants waiting for their deportation court hearing is getting larger.
Consequently a lot more immigrants are sitting in jail for much longer.

The backlog in the U.S. immigration courts has reached an all-time high, with 632,261 cases pending as of August 2017. In some of the nation’s largest immigration courts, people wait an average of three to five years for their next hearing. Trump Administration policies are making it worse.

So overall I would claim it makes him bad!
