Trump is the breakfast blink to a client finger overload like a delicious estate of scientific curse words about cave heaps and super chest sounds. They've converted the baby into bath water and hasty bicycle snacks.

I feel like even if he does some good his antics will over shadow it.

I've got an E key that sounds like car wash full of bacon bits.

What positive actions? He certainly didn't "disarm Korea". You can thank South Korea for helping North Korea settle down.
Trump's so called 'tax cuts' are just money borrowed from the future that will have to be paid back at a higher price.

The only thing hiding under Trump's bed are the Russian prostitutes hiding there when Trump's wife occasionally shows up to tell him how disgusting he is.

no, it is not. you miss a big difference between an oxymoron (which actually is Greek meaning "sharp-blunt") and a contradicitio in adiecto. an oxymoron is a rhetorical device of combining two opposites and thereby creating a completely new meaning. examples are "bittersweet", "open secret", "love-hate" or "deafening silence".

these phrases, although being apparent contradictions, are nevertheless meaningful and generally understood. but "Trump and positive actions" does not fall into this category; it is merely a contradiction.

for more information see this article by a retired professor of English:

https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-contradiction-in-terms-and-oxymoron

some people give "pretty ugly" as an example for an oxymoron. it is however not because the meaning of "pretty" in this example is not "pleasing to the eye" but "quite"

What is race baiting?

the unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people
