Here's How Glenn Thinks Trump Is Doing As President So Far

Four days into Donald Trump's presidency, Glenn reported on how he's feeling about the new Commander-in-chief so far.

"Not looking to the past, not looking to the future, just looking right now," Glenn said on radio Tuesday. "I'm feeling pretty good."

Read the transcript below for more.

GLENN: What's with the scatterbrain? Stu, none of us can remember. We start -- I started the question. We said that we would give him a fair shake.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And not looking to the past, not looking to the future, just looking right now, did I ever finish that? Go around the room and --

STU: You and Pat answered it, I believe. And then we kind of got off on a tangent.

GLENN: Okay. So I'm feeling pretty good, except for those things. How are you feeling?

PAT: Yeah, pretty good.

STU: He's exceeded my expectations so far.

GLENN: Well, you had no expectations.

STU: I don't know why you need to point that out.

But seriously, there's been -- I think it's been a mixed bag. I'm not thrilled, but I'm thrilled with some of the things. I think what's interesting about Trump and watching him go through this is he is -- he's sort of a, you know, jam your foot on the gas guy. And when it connects with something you're -- you like, he's amazing.

For example, so far on the EPA and those related issue, energy and EPA, he's been I think very good.

GLENN: He's about to sign -- he's about to open the Keystone oil pipeline.

STU: Yeah. And the Dakota one as well.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: His EPA chief pick I think was very solid. He's been very good on those things. And because that's an issue I'm passionate about, I really like it. I'm also passionate about free trade. And I don't agree with him on that. And his stances there are going to be problematic for me. You know, the Flynn appointment is a disaster for me. It's really bad. And that one, I think, is -- is really problematic. But I would say, overall, you know, speaking generally, I think he's certainly exceeded my expectations, and I think a lot of the picks have been really good. Not just kind of good. Not just okay, well, that's acceptable from a Republican president. Actually beyond that, because he doesn't seem to care, which is great.

However, on the issues I don't agree with him on, it's going to hurt a lot. You know, if we see this sort of dynamic, where there's really good things or really bad things, as long as the bad isn't too, too bad, it's going to be better than I expected. And look, I hope that's the case. I hope it continues. One of the things we talked about yesterday on Pat & Stu is how stupid this protest was by the left.

Think about this. You have a guy who in the campaign asked for $680 billion for federal funding for maternity leave.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: He values his daughter Ivanka seemingly more than anybody on the planet and trusts her judgment and embraces it.

So now you set up a dynamic, instead of working with him to try to get those things done, which no other Republican would do for you, you go out there and oppose him and just piss him off. And the way Trump seems to react to things like that is, "Oh, you thought you're getting that? No way." He will step back and build a wall around himself and say, "Screw you. You're going to go out there and protest me with 3 million people, screw you. You're never getting any of those things now." That's a terrible tactic.

GLENN: Unless you're playing for long-term discord.

Megyn Kelly: 'Why I took my son out of his school'

Megyn Kelly says it's 'disgusting' what's happening with our doctors amid today's gender equality movement — and, maybe even worse — what's happening in our schools. Kelly details the question her son was asked 'weekly' in his school, leading to her decision to leave it: 'This is indoctrination. It's deeply confusing to the children, and it's wrong.'

WATCH: Biden’s Middle East Chaos: Our Dangerous Path to the Next 9/11

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

WATCH: Glenn Beck reveals SHOCKING details of stalled Afghanistan rescue efforts

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
