The Presidency of Donald Trump - A Make Shift Coffee House Conversation

The Presidency of Donald Trump. Let's talk about it. With respect for each others' views.

What do you like about him? What do you dislike about him? How is the Trump presidency good or bad for our country and the world? What are your thrills? Your fears? And why do you think the way you do?

All are welcome. As with all Make Shift Coffee Houses, this is not a debate. It’s not about persuading each other or arguing with each other. It’s not about deciding what’s best or what’s worse, who’s right or who’s wrong. It’s simply about UNDERSTANDING each other’s political views. It’s a lot more about listening than telling.

We want to hear your political views AND how your views came to be. Come to this Make Shift Coffee House and tell us how you feel about Trump, and come hear how your neighbors feel.

If you have never been to a Make Shift Coffee House, check out "What It's Like" here: https://makeshiftcoffeehouse.com/what-its-like/
