    God commands us to earnestly pray for those in leadership over us, so how many here plan to obey God and pray continual basis for God to protect/direct Trump now?

    Well I pray the 1 Timothy 2:1-2 prayer on a regular basis, which would include President Trump and our Government of the United States of America. Of course, the bible also commands us to do so. I find this especially important now that we are on the cusp of so many wars: Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and Islamic Terrorist groups that abound across the world.

    Trying to get a plan to stop Isis, trying to keep terrorists out, trying to get Christians back legal freedoms, just overall, trying to so what is best for USA, Obama wantd to do just what was bst for liberals/minorities it seemed!

    President Obama was disengaged in world events, Trump engaged right off the start!
    Shows us all that we need to know whn President Obama stated that hismost important act was getting gay marriages legalized!

    Trying Trying Trying.........then you have a list of botched initiatives (I wont list them because we are all aware of them). Point is......Do something --from start to finish. Do it well. Stop stepping on your junk. Crying they don't love him -- Big Wossie. Then, maybe someone will pay attention. Until then, Blank Off!

    Trump is the leader God gave to us, and the church must pray for him to do the will of God, correct?
    Cannot the Lord use Him as his toll to exult USA back again to God now?

    Oh, please do. List them. I am not aware of any botched initiatives. He has only been President for one month. How many global initiatives can he plan, fund, execute, and evaluate in 30 or 31 days?

    With the possible exception of the EO re: the travel restrictions, he hasn't really had any major policy-based gaffes.

    What has happened is that his White House appears to be disorganized and dysfunctional (especially in light of the Flynn issue). Whether or not that appearance is reality is a separate question.

    Thus far, my beef with the President is mostly with the way he presents himself to the public. I think he needs to be more disciplined.

    I don't like his policies, but he hasn't really failed at doing what he's attempted to do (apart from the travel ban--which is TBD).

    Yes, but not as much as I should have, as I was not in agreement with anything that he did!

    He has largely failed as a human being as far as I am concerned. Both he and Rush Limbaugh need to get together. The sheer magnitude of his narcissism, his need to be loved....the guy is a mess as a human being....not fit for the president.

    Oh so you pray by degree of policy acceptance. I got it, you will use your Christian backed decree to pray for a guy like Trump but will throttle back on the 1st African American to take the oath of office. Good for you.

    Why are you asking me who is better when you know full well I cant stand Obama....I consider him a failed president & never voted for him nor did I ever support him. I deeply hate the fact that he slammed a Health Care program down the throats of Americans & cost us.

    Now comes this Trump character promising the same Hope & Change BS agenda (but never delivering on it) ...but now its Make America Great nonsense. RIGHT. Yea, right here with your cheap slogans (same as the old boss).....start producing. The Republicans had 6 freaking years to come up with an alternative health care plan---where is it?

    So let me give you the proper metric for how to measure US Presidents.....

    BY PERFORMANCE: Does Trump conduct himself as a Leader, a Professional, an Example for others, A model of Integrity?

    Does he encourage people to work together (or does he insult & drive wedges between people)

    Does he manage through the force of facts & not through the forces of personality (emotion) etc?

    Does he criticize (in public)?

    Does he feel his lofty position as POTUS gives him special privileges that he can lord over others?

    Does he take responsibility or does he scapegoat?

    Is he mature in his thinking process?

    I will state this one last time for you....The position of Leader of the free world / POTUS is not "Charisma," not Public Relations, not Showmanship. It is Performance, Consistent Behavior -I should stress "Good Behavior"-LOL, and Trust Worthiness.

    Do not accuse me of not praying for him just due to him being a Black president, it was ONLY due to his anti christian agenda and policies!

    In Feburary 2009, Obama signed the $787 Billion stimulus bill and the extension of the S-CHIP, children's health care program.

    In February 1981 Reagan had already sent to Congress his sweeping budget revision plan and his huge tax cut plan. He was urging citizens to call their representatives in Congress and tell them to pass the bills.

    In February 2001, George W. Bush was aggressively advancing his agenda. He started with his education overhaul package, then his faith-based initiative, introduced his $1.6 Trillion ten year tax cut plan (the Bush tax cuts), and sent his $1.96 trillion budget to Capitol Hill.

    Trump? He had a good first week, signed some EO's, appointed Gorsuch, met some world leaders. Then he got bogged down in the Flynn resignation, the Russian connection accusations, the botched travel ban rollout. He's gone golfing in Mar-a-Lago three weekends in a row, had a couple of press conferences, and held two rallies. No matter what Hannity tells you, compared to these other guys Trump is flailing and not getting anything done.
