I tlhink he's awful, generally speaking. Not on everything, but on most things.
First the positive stuff: What he's trying to do with US tariffs against Chinese goods might be good for the economy in time. And if he blocks some big media mergers, even for selfish political reasons, that could be good for consumer choice.
I think it's possible that some of his arrogant, bragging foreign policy actions will work, also, although we don't know yet.
More importantly, however, his attempt to "make American great again" by killing off environmental regulations of industry, and by eagerly promoting the production of coal, oil, fracked gas and other fossil fuels, is insane.
His whole administration seems to be committed to wrecking the world's chance to slow down global change in time to prevent real eco-catastrophes. I think he's doing this mostly to win financial and political support from the giant oil companies and to win the votes of frightened coal miners in West Virginia, and that's suicidally short-sighted and stupid.
In his willingness to play nice with racist rightwing extremists like Steven Bannon and even the "nice people" who marched for the KKK at Charlottesville, Trump is embracing a tradition of racist hate-mongering in US politics that's one of the worst curses of American history.
I think that's morally evil, even though history demonstrates that racial hate-mongering often succeeds in US politics. We'll pay enormous costs for his racially divisive politics in the future, IMO.
His latest anti-abortion policy action, to make it impossible for doctors receiving federal funds to even mention the possibility of abortion to poor women in their care, is deeply "anti-liberty" and destructive to the welfare and health of the women. I'm sure Trump will inspire some anti-abortion activists to campaign for the GOP this fall, but what he's doing to millions of poor women is wrong.
