Salvatore, San Jose:
I really don’t care that [President Trump] is coming to California. I have disapproved of his recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. I don’t believe it was a smart move on his part. Regardless of how many other presidents have tried to enact that. I think it’s completely disrespectful. Jerusalem is to me a holy city where many people can congregate and practice their religion, and to impose that as the capital of Israel is unfair, and unjust. Especially regarding a separate subject, the Israeli-Palestinian. I don’t think it helped with the conflict at all. I think it kind of escalated conflict even more within the Middle East. I think that’s something we should have not become a part of, because now we’re becoming involved with other people’s drama when we have more serious things to worry about here at home.
Marian, San Francisco:
I have really like the way people have responded to Trump by organizing, deciding to run for office and speaking out against his policies. I haven’t liked anything he’s done and that’s putting it mildly.
I like the fact that he has helped the economy in his mind. And I don’t like pretty much everything. He’s divided the country, his stance on DACA is pretty poor, he has made the country, made everything very controversial. I also don’t like that we have a person in office who is technically the leader of the free world and kind of feels almost incompetent.
I do love the president, I love everything he’s doing. I love his lunatic style. I just love that he’s been firing so many people in his administration and some of them are leaving. The whole flushing out is phenomenal. Everything he’s doing is great. No matter how painful it sounds it’s phenomenal and I’m going to vote for him again. I love that man and I hope he stays our president.
What I’ve liked about Donald Trump is that he has woken people up. He’s gotten people stirred up. That’s what I liked. I will call back when I figure out what, if anything, I like about him.
I have not liked basically everything Trump has done while he is in office. What I have liked is despite him or maybe because of him millions of people have recognized that voting actually matters. It impacts their personal lives. I hope we remember this lesson forever and never let it happen again.
