PRESIDENT TRUMP’S FIRST TERM ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Whether you agree or disagree with what President Trump is doing, there is little disagreement that he has done a lot since being sworn in as President on January 20, three years ago.  If you disagree, you probably have either not been paying attention or have been only watching CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, or MSNBC, since those T.V. stations usually do not report the positive actions the President has taken or downplay/twist his accomplishments.  To help remedy this situation, I’ve  compiled a partial list of the President’s accomplishments so far:

1. Created the largest reduction in Federal income tax rates that the U.S. has ever had for both people and businesses, leading to the largest economic boom the U.S. has ever seen.  This has resulted in the lowest unemployment rates ever for African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Asian-Americans, and an overall unemployment rate of 3.5%.  It also has meant about 10% increase in wages to the lowest-paid workers and a total increase to average American families of about $10,000 and larger revenues from Federal taxes because of the vastly-increased economic activity.

2. Revised Obamacare and is replacing it with much better and less expensive healthcare insurance.

3. Ordered and signed hundreds of Executive Orders largely directing various Federal agencies to eliminate job-killing regulations.

4. Withdrew the United States from the do-nothing “Paris Climate Accords,” thus preventing billions of taxpayer dollars being transferred to other countries.

5. Selected two “originalist”  judges to the Supreme Court and about 180 Federal judges.

6. Coerced NATO members to add $140 billion to their previous donations to NATO.

7. Decreased illegal immigrant border crossings by 73%, thus improving the lives of legal immigrants as well as the poor since illegal aliens will work for “starvation wages” and thereby drastically lower the wages employers offer to unskilled workers.

8. Dow Jones Industrial Average increased in value by over 40% since he was elected on November 8, 2016.

9. Enabled the U.S. to become “energy-independent” by significantly increasing oil, gas, and coal production, thus freeing it from mid-east oil.

10. Met with numerous heads of State (like Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Japan, England, Germany, Italy, etc.) to improve relations.

11. Re-established the United States as the world leader by bombing a Syrian airfield when Syria used chemical weapons against its citizens.

12. Destroyed the ISIS caliphate by delegating authority to the Secretary of Defense and removing Obama’s  “Rules of Engagement.”

13. Significantly increased military spending in FY ’18, ’19, and ’20, thus vastly improving the military’s  combat-readiness.

14. Re-negotiated trade agreements (NAFTA) with Mexico and Canada to make it fairer to the United States.

15. Approved the completion of both the Keystone and Dakota Access oil pipelines, thereby preventing the more dangerous train and trucking of the oil.

16. Cancelled U.S. participation in the very flawed and harmful-to-the-U.S. Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

17. Withdrew the U.S. from the Iranian nuclear deal and imposed a “maximum pressure” campaign on it that has forced Iran to curtail its funding of its terrorist proxies.

18. Negotiated a trade deal with china to curtail Chinese tariffs, add American tariffs, and stop Chinese theft of American intellectual property.

19. Built about 100 miles of 30-ft. high wall on our southern border and is scheduled to build another 300 miles by the end of 2020 to curb illegal immigration, narcotics, and human trafficking.

20. Withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia so as to compete with China, who has heavily invested in these weapons.

I’ve only listed a sampling of the Trump Administration’s achievements. Last I looked, there’s a few hundred things that have improved the lives of Americans and the United States.  Since I have been following politics starting in 1960, beginning with the Kennedy-Nixon debates, I’ve never seen any President do more or work so hard in his first term than President Trump.  President Trump has become a genuine “Jobs President.”  His policy positions are superb for the United States and his “in-your-face” and negative campaigning style I believe were instrumental in Donald Trump becoming President Trump.  If he continues to improve in being more prudent in choosing the words he uses in his tweets and comments, I believe he will change many hearts and minds of Independents and Moderate Democrats and will be re-elected in 2020 by a landslide…and perhaps become one of the greatest President in U.S. history.
