Do you agree that Trump is more concerned with the long term well-being of the country than Obama was?

Obama was very much focused on the short term. Interest rates at zero, quantitative easing, massive debt. Those are things that may improve the economy in the short run but can lead to huge economic problems down the line. Obama was like 'Make the economy good now and what happens ten years from now is someone else's problem'

Trump on the other hand seems to be more forward thinking. Raising interest rates, the trade deals, the wall and the space force are all things that may not benefit us right now but years from now we'll look back and realize they were good things.  

Update:

@Random- The president has a lot of control of monetary policy. Probably more so than fiscal policy yet most people assume the president has complete control over fiscal policy. The president appoints the chairman of the Fed. That alone is a lot of power. But, presidential leadership can greatly influence monetary policy as well.

    Many of the actions you talk about were by the Federal Reserve, and have nothing to do with the President.

    Well put. Some see the future, Obama didn’t, other than to destroy it. That was his fundamental change. It’s a wrong view that too many have chosen. I used to be one.

    None of what you said is true. Trump's primary concern in all things is himself and his personal wealth. He is NOT the kind of man who would give up his life to save the life of his wife or children or grandchildren

    Obama was primarily concerned with long term well-being of international terrorists and Latin American drug gangs.
