    Kut's Trump Approval Thread #1 (Starts Out at 100%)

    When OP is locked post #5 will continue the scoring.

    So it's now President Donald J. Trump. He gets a clean slate. He starts out with a 100% approval rating from me. However, as his presidency continues, I will rate his actions. It may go down, it may go up (if less than 100), but I will explain why he loses or gains points. I figure this is the best way to do this rather than post numerous individual threads about his presidency. Good natured debate is welcome, bad natured debate is not, and if pervasive without moderator intervention, I'll simply go back to my original plan and post a bunch of "Trump" threads.

    Other member's ratings are welcome.

    Anyways.

    Trump Approval Rating: 87.7

    1/22/2017- Announcement of not releasing taxes, even after completing audit -2
    1/23/2017 -Withdrawal from TPP (+0.5 since it never was enacted), reminding American funds from foreign interests (+1) = +1.5
    1/28/2017 -Immigration and Visa EO -4
    1/29/2017 -Removal of Chairman of Joint Chiefs and Director of National Intelligence as permanent members of the National Security Council and the addition of Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, as permanent member to the body -1
    2/1/2017 -Announcement of Gorsuch as SCOTUS replacement +1
    2/1/2017 -Unannounced trip to visit family of first soldier KIA under his watch +0.2
    2/14/2017 - Resignation of incompetent National Security Advisor (M. Flynn) -1
    2/16/2017 - Request that Israel slow down on settlements +0.5
    2/22/2017 - Trump rescinds Trangender bathroom protections, and leaves it up to the individual states +1
    2/24/2017 - Exclusion of specific media outlets from the White House Press Room -2
    +4/5/2017 - Removal of Steve Bannon from National Security Council +1
    4/6/2017 - Missile attack on Syria -5
    4/29/2017 -Trump invites Philippines dictator Duterte to the White House -0.5
    General - ICE activity in the removal of illegals +2
    General - Has signed more EOs than any president since WW2 -1
    5/9/2017 - The firing of FBI Director James Comey (method/reason/effect) -3

    Non-pointable embarrassments:
    -Twitter (on-going)
    -Angela Merkel non-Handshake
    - 2017 Presidential Voter Fraud (on-going)
    - Disbelief in Russian attempts to disrupt the 2016 Election (on-going)
    - Praise of Kim Jong Un (on-going)

    My current thread approval rating: 100

    I think its unfair to start at 100. I'd suggest 50. Balance. Equipoise. Neither good nor bad.

    Okay. So rate his speech. I'd go 7/10. I'm picky.

    8.5/10 ....but stuff like that will have no effect on my "official" rating, only bad behavior, and policy missteps.

    This seems oddly specific.

    No. It's approximate. If you want specific it's 150 out 271-1/3.
