Yes but the right was worried about whether or not Obama was a Muslim or a Kenyan, afraid he was going to send in the Black UN Helicopters, none of which were realistic or rational concerns.
The left is worried about Trump destroying healthcare, women's reproductive freedom, freedom of the press... all of which he's already started to do.

No, "Should," maybe not... but he does.

Reduce the power of the federal government and return it to the states and local governments. Government is best when it is accountable, and it is most accountable at the local and state level.
Congress is controlled by the GOP. They will do nothing to rein Trump in.
