Voters React to President Trump 99 Days After He Takes Office

WYOMING--- Friday marked 99 days since President Donald Trump took office and it had people talking politics at the Avenue Diner.

Voters in Luzerne County helped Trump win Pennsylvania in November and they still feel pretty positive about their newly elected leader.

Some lifelong democrats said back in November they went red for the first time.

"My father would probably roll over in his grave if he heard I had switched over to republican, but I just liked what I heard," Trump voter Jim Tighe said.

Tighe said he still feels confident about his decision. He said in the past 99 days, Trump has proven himself and voters have proven they won't always toe party lines.

"It shows government that we're not only locked into a party, but we're locked into people also," Tighe said.

Others, like Trump voter Jason Santee, said at first he thought Trump was a joke. However, after a while, he started to believe Trump could really change the country.

In 99 days, Santee said Trump has done what he can despite all of the gridlock in Washington.

"I don't think 100 days is nearly enough. I think they're still battling between each other, you know it's ridiculous," Santee said.

No matter which side of the aisle you're on, there's no denying the Avenue Diner has had a seat at the table for history.

Former President Barack Obama sat at the counter and had a slice of pie a few years back and Diane Sawyer interviewed people about President Trump's victory.

"It's put a small town like Wyoming, Exeter, West Pittston back on the map. We do have a say in some other things as well," Owner of the Avenue Diner, Dave Krappa said.

More than anything, these Trump voters said we need to just give the president a break.

"It's 100 days, I mean let's see what happens in four years," Tighe said.

The Avenue Diner hopes to host President Trump at some point in the next four years as well.

Tickets to President Trump's Saturday rally can be found on his campaign website.

    You have to love all the Trump supporters who quoted him and believed every word he said while campaigning, including DAY ONE and HIS First 100 Days that HE promised them over and over!! NOW they tell everyone he hasn’t had enough time, didn’t understand how complicated it was, it’s gridlock or how Congress works. Reallly? WE ALL knew that so where’s he been? NO ONE thought to tell him he couldn’t just wave a magic wand and Make America Great Again?

  • WarningFakeNews

    Despite all the efforts by the left and the media (As per the department of redundancy dept.) Trump still enjoys rock-solid support from those who elected him. All of that hot air expelled by them has amounted to exactly- NAUGHT.

    I love that he will visit the Farm show in Harrisburg and not some Isis-linked mosque.
    He released his taxes, paid higher rate then any other President. Still no O birth certificate.

    • get a life trucker

      You poor dumb (unintelligible) Your messiah has not released his tax returns, hasn’t paid taxes in years, and yes, Obama produced his birth certificate. Pay attention and take notes.

        “Hasn’t paid his taxes in years”. You’re a liar. That’s right from the Harry Reid playbook, and his returns are nobody’s business but his, crybaby.

    Q: What’s the difference between a crying baby and a liberal / Democrat on Nov. 9th, 2016?

    A: The baby stopped crying, eventually.

      Whoever wrote this post seems to have little understanding of how the stock market actually works, or is just being misleading with statistics. The stock market has been going up and up for YEARS. After the election, there was really little more than a “Trump bump” to an already healthy market. Plus, these things are cyclical – the market will go back down, and I’m sure you won’t be blaming Supreme Leader Trump when it does.

    • get a life

      Another Breitbart idiot. Do your own research instead of cutting and pasting someone else’s BS.

  • Dave

    All the Trump haters, should pay us back on all the cost of immigration spending we had to fork out in the last 8 years.

    • cheeseburger_walrus

      What, all that spending on Border Patrol and deporting people? Because illegal immigration was already on the decline and there were plenty of people sent back under Obama.


    Trump is in office for one reason – to enrich himself – his tax proposal says it all. If we allow it, he will perpetrate the largest transfer of wealth from poor to rich that the world has ever seen. One word conveys his actions and decisions: HEIST!!!

  • Carl Homish

    The man is a bully and a buffoon. not qualified for the office. has done nothing except enrich himself with taxpayer money.

  • Liberal stupidity is frightening

    How come I never saw the sensationalized media stories of the Hussein’s first 100 days? Can’t be a left wing communist media tactic I’m sure!

      • Liberal stupidity is frightening

        I get out just fine thank you. I watch madcow on msn and the conspiracy lunatic fringe on cnn who all seem to sport the ridiculous professor type eyeglasses and display the overly dramatic facial expressions. This is very comical to watch while selling their cancerous propaganda. It’s truly worrisome that low IQ voter’s buy into this false narrative.

      • Silverfish Imperetrix

        Reading comprehension isn’t your strong point, is it. In your fervor to bash Fox your reply made absolutely no sense regarding LSIF’s comment. LOL

    • cheeseburger_walrus

      You should probably get your memory checked, Obama’s first 100 days were also extensively (and sensationally) covered.

      • Silverfish Imperetrix

        “Sensationally” isn’t the word for it…and the rest of both of his terms. He could do absolutely no wrong according to the media, no matter how much he outright lied, circumvented the Constitution, stirred up racial hatred, trashed our allies while embracing our enemies and totally stagnated America’s economy. Sensational Soetoro was the biggest mistake America ever made, but you’d never know it with all of the sensational coverage he got from the media. All Democrats get the same sensational treatment too.
