My argument is very simple. Pro says I cannot mention these issues, but doesn't say I can't mention that I can't mention the issues.

Therefore I will highlight that I cannot mention all these issues. By default, we should assume they are all opposing Trump. They likely show a heavy detriment and loss of happiness in the public. Indeed, by the end of his presidency, more than 50% of the population disproved of him, showing that his general policies were not good at all. (https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/trump-approval-ratings/)

Unless Pro is able to prove that Trump has succeeded in each and every one of these issues, then we can assume the evidence is so stacked and obvious that they are not even worth mentioning. Just as 1+1=2 is an obvious truth that doesn't need mentioning, I'm sure Trump's issues are widely known and people would generally know, with nearly 60% people agreeing that he was a bad president overall. Therefore, the fact that I can't mention the specific issue highlights that Trump is a bad president through and through.
