President Trump, love him or hate him, has been a consequential President and got a lot of good things done. Here is our list:
Judges: He has redone the courts, appointing a record number of strict constructionist judges.
Significant tax cuts and deregulation which led to, pre-Covid, the lowest unemployment in 50 years.
Rebuilt the U.S. military.
Most pro-life President ever.
Supported education choice.
Standing with Israel. He moved the Embassy to Israel’s capital and recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.
Established the Abraham accords with historical peace agreements between Israel and now five-Muslim Arab countries, with more coming.
Built a border wall with Mexico to keep out illegals trying to enter the U.S.
Supported religious freedom in the U.S. and around the world.
Withdrew from the unfair Paris climate accord.
Establish America as energy independent and an exporter of oil and gas.
Got NATO nations to pay more of the costs of joint defense.
Protected federal property during the riots of 2020.
Criminal Justice Reform – the First Step Act.
Withdrew from the badly flawed Iran Nuclear deal and eliminated the lead terrorist in the Iranian military.
Rebuilt trade agreements so America is treated fairly.
Protecting freedom of speech and protection against false accusations on college campuses.
Send real weapons to Ukraine and Taiwan.
Operation Warp Speed developed a Covid vaccine as promised before the end of 2020.
Reforming the V.A.
Reducing prescription drug prices.
Standing up to Russia and China.
And this is just a partial list. Public policy wise, he will go down as one of the most consequential Presidents of the last century!
