I vote no.  Not unless he turns things around on his character, policy, associates, and tweets.

So there is no question on his character or his tweets.

Associates:  Manafort, Cohen, Omarosa to name a few. 

Policies:  I think more his way of doing things.  Like letting his lackey say this and then he contradicts them.

I think of character in the present tense and I do think he has changed. Some of his past behavior is indefensible. As far as twitter is concerned, I think he needs to keep using it. It’s the best format for him to get his message out. You and I would agree that he should drop the name calling, except in rare cases like “Crooked Hillary”. She is a crook and should win jail. The strength of Trump is he’s a fighter, but that obviously has a downside. Given that he has been the most maligned and investigated POTUS in my memory I can excuse some of his responses. Keep in mind that he is not just fighting the Progressives but the Uniparty that has put the nation in peril. I think he is doing what no other candidate had the cajones to do.

He's the greatest President who wore a wig.

Wow!!!  There were quite a few.  I didn't know you were that impressed by him.
Several are on "ignore".   I won't argue with the ignorant and disrespectful..

John Adams was the last president to wear a wig and his was powdered not orange/blond.  Now there were 4 who were members of the Whig party.

That could also be Nancy's legacy.

Maybe - Impeached to what end - to not get convicted and win reelection?  Clinton is remembered for being impeached but that may or may not be the first thing people think of.  With Trump, the D's have been spouting off about impeaching him since before he took office.  And they say they will continually impeach him.  Again, to what end?  He will be remembered as having been the target of a political partisan coup.

True, but the meaning is so watered down, it's like getting cited for not having a license in possession. 

"Yeah, but so what."

It may even carry a Roger Maris *   He was impeached but they never presented the articles for trial.  If that happens, the *explanation will state the vote was along political lines.  Suffice for some, the * reference will expand on it stating the House did not find sufficient merit to submit the two Articles to the Senate for the trial.

He will go down as one of the greatest; hands down. The drama is being played out before our eyes and we get the privilege of watching it.

I don't think the greatest.  His policies have been good, but his manner and character are not.
