I cannot find a single poll anywhere here that's asked this question, and i'm curious as to how many in the anime community are for or against him. As far as those who talk politics, it seems to be roughly a 50/50 split here on Crunchyroll, but lets put it to a poll.

Mostly dislike i mean he has done some good shit but in general he is a terrible leader makes VERY questionable choices and his sense of morals and emotions seems ......heavily lacking.

He isn't the smartest person either even by politician standards.
He isn't as bad as people say (calling him a Fascist etc) but he is objectively not the best person you could have in there (though i highly doubt Hillary would of been better so objectively out of the two to pick at elections he was the best pick)


He will be out by the next Presidential elections.
He doesn't seem to understand the impact his choices in America have on other countries and that's going to come and bite him in the ass

Neutral. Least-worst option, for the most part. The last election was a train wreck. I wasn't enthused with whoever would win out until Hillary managed to piss me off.

I have no problem with the dude, doing much greater than what came before him. he isn't doing everything I agree with and I call it every time.

Eh I like his policies on somethings (trade renegotiation, dealing with ISIS in Syria, dumping the personal mandate), not so much on others (Healthcare, Education). Either way anytime he does something decent he has a habit of saying something stupid and I'm like was that really necessary. I'm not some blind partisan I will not support someone 100% of the time or resist everything and anything they do, for an independent like myself actions must be judged on their own merits.

Mostly dislike.

that said i will probably never find president i will love. as no president is a saint despite what some might claim. anyone who controls military with the power orders the death of hundreds is never something i will see as "Good."

Over all a lot of his policies i disagree with as well as his "press is the enemy." rhetoric. as i view it as neither good or evil.

however, hes hardly the worst if anyone remembered regains "trickle down." or god forbid Nixon.

i would say he is probably on the same level of dislike as bill Clinton.

I largely dislike him, but I don't think he's Hitler reincarnated like the rest of everyone around my area tends to think. I'd say I agree with maybe 20% of his stances on partisan issues. I particularly like the way he's handled international trade, but particularly dislike the way he's handled education and environmental issues (which I view as two of the most important). I also don't think hes good at picking qualified people to appoint to positions of political office. Discussing him gets pretty annoying though because around where I live (SF Bay Area) literally everyone will act like the world has ended every time he takes any sort of political action regardless of if they actually understand it or if it actually unknowingly aligns with their political ideals. A good example of this would be back when Trump decided to tariff Chinese imports to pull manufacturing back to North American, partly as a reaction to Chinese companies' frequent and longstanding violations of intellectual property (you're probably familiar with Chinese knockoff products). Now, this is actually a pretty left leaning political decision on Trump's part, and has been advocated in some form by Bernie Sanders, yet people around where I live freaked out when this happened despite the fact that most of them had never even thought about international trade in their life prior to this, and that wanting international free trade (the general ideological alternative to this decision) is actually a right wing policy. The hilarious thing is that whenever I would tell people that wanting free trade was typically the right wing stance, they would immediately change their positions on the issue mid conversation right in front of me because they were just that afraid of touching anything they might consider vaguely right wing. That said I still don't like Trump, and political decisions aside, his obnoxious behavior is just embarrassing for the US as a whole and only goes to further cement negative American stereotypes in the eyes of the international community. In the future though I think he'll probably be more remembered for the reactions people had to him than anything he actually did himself; it'll be interesting to see.

No is my answer, but if there are individuals who are in favor of Trump they are free to do so.

Though I have not diligently followed his actions as a President, Mr. Trump's obvious brash comportment is to me judgmental and disgusting.



From his comments against the now five men who were wrongfully accused of raping a woman in the Central Park in 1989, to trying to sue a woman named Vera Coking to take her home and build a parking space, to his perverse comments toward women by grabbing a specific area. With the vast amount of examples available, I do not see this individual capable of being a public figure nor a President, but this is my opinion.

He is a politician. That already says a lot about his credibility. In other words, DON'T TRUST IN HIM OR ANY OTHER POLITICIANS. He is a politician, which means he is a trouble-making, liar and actor. If you think he is going to make the world a better place, you are lying to yourself. All politicians are trouble-makers and liars.

He's not my personal cup of tea, but the media definitely exaggerates a lot. CNN did it with Bush, Fox did it with Obama, and CNN is doing it with Trump. No matter who the president is, the "other-side" of the news will attack and exaggerate to get views. While at first I thought he was a dumbass for how he acts on Twitter and in some news interviews, I eventually looked into it and found that he's just playing the game with the news; using them to get free publicity. A lot of the clips we see of the terrible, horrible things he says are actually edited and clipped to cut out the parts where he sounds like an actual human. You can't blame him for the fact that a lot of ignorant citizens are using him to justify their ignorance.

Either way, not my favorite but, despite the supreme court justice he nominated and a few other outliers, he hasn't destroyed the country like everyone said he would.
