As critics of President Donald Trump explain it, he’s accomplished absolutely nothing since entering office while causing a whole bunch of unnecessary problems.
Back on Earth, the story is quite different. Trump is plowing through the items on his agenda in impressive fashion.
As the mainstream media and Democratic leaders obsess over wild conspiracy theories and the never-ending stream of gossip that emanates from the nation’s capital, Trump and company are busy working and actually getting things done.
Washington Examiner has the details on exactly how much has been accomplished by Trump thus far.
With unprecedented speed, the Trump administration has already implemented nearly two-thirds of the 334 agenda items called for by the Heritage Foundation, a pace faster than former President Reagan who embraced the conservative think tank’s legendary “Mandate for Leadership”blueprint.
Thomas Binion, director of congressional and executive branch relations at Heritage, said that Trump has implemented 64 percent of the “unique policy recommendations” from the group.
We’re not talking about a few meaningless bullet points that cater to the very few either.
Trump has managed to affect meaningful change that has improved the fortunes of our nation as a whole.
At this stage of his presidency, Reagan had completed 49 percent of the Heritage policy recommendations.
“We’re blown away,” Binion said in an interview. Trump, he said, “is very active, very conservative, and very effective.”
What’s more, he said, Trump hasn’t just focused on one agenda area, but he and his team have pushed through administrative moves on foreign policy, deregulation, immigration, tax reform and health care, moves often ignored by the media.
In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, Trump jokingly remarked that folks were going to get sick and tired of winning under his leadership.
A little over a year into his first term in office, it’s quite refreshing to note that’s at least an option.
As the commander-in-chief himself may say, he’s managed to deliver on his promises in a big league fashion.
