President Donald Trump is now almost six months into his four-year term as president of the United States. Some people might be ecstatic about President Trump finally taking office, others are seriously considering moving to another country.

In the first two months of Trump being president, he has already signed thirty-four executive orders. An executive order, according to Merriam Webster Dictionary, is a rule or order issued by the president to an executive branch of the government and having the force of law. Such executive orders included: providing an order of succession within the department of justice, protecting the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the united states and border security and immigration enforcement improvements.

Many people have taken a liking for the new president, yet some continue to claim that he will never be their president.  Fazed with the words Trumps uses to describe Mexicans such as “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. … They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists” he says in his 2015 announcement speech, some will never respect him.

But some still choose to stick by him to due to his pro-life mentality, or the fact that he did not delete 33,000 e-mails, and some just believe he truly will “Make America Great Again.”

When Mater Dei students were asked about their views on Trump, Alan Rojas, a junior, was quick to answer. He states, “I think he will make a great impact to America, it is very new and I feel like we cannot tell, but I feel like his changes will be really good or very bad, but I do hope he makes ‘America Great Again’.”

Many people, like Rojas may be unsure of what the future holds and are hoping for the best, while others have made up their mind entirely.

Ryan Flores, a junior at Mater Dei, has his hopes high for this Trump’s term. He explains, “I love it! [He’s] someone who talks to people with the truth, straight to the point”, he goes on to say, “I like his ideas… and I just really like him”.

While some are completely on board that President Trump is the guy to count one, some Crusaders are not completely sold.

Junior Samantha Ruiz comments, “By the way he treats people and by the way he reacts to what people say about him… he just lashes out and I think that’s his problem”, open-minded to the future, Samantha goes on to say, “I haven’t agreed with anything that he’s done up until now, but if I really do see that there is a change I might change my opinion. I am not denying the possibilities.” She concludes by saying, “He thinks that by putting a wall, the crime is going to stop, but that is not true, everything is going to continue.”

There are many opinions on this topic, but this is something only that can only unravel throughout time. Whether in the end Trump decides to build walls or bridges in this nation is still unclear and in the end we shall see if he really will ‘Make America Great Again’.
