Default Congrats on a Great Year President Trump! MAGA!!

http://www.newsweek.com/trumps-first...shments-786130

Quote:
This article first appeared on the History News Network.

Karl Rove wrote in the WSJ that, “If President Trump could control himself, people might notice his accomplishments.”

Accomplishments are defined by campaign and post-election promises, not each person’s opinion of what is good and what is bad, a legitimate but different topic. Presidential accomplishments also include actions taken by subordinates that have at least presidential approval.



With that in mind, Mr. Trump’s accomplishments through December 2017 include at least the following 82:


100 percent vote by UN Security Council to sanction North Korea.

41 percent decline in illegal southern border crossings

97,482 illegal immigrant arrests, 70 percent convicted of additional crimes, 52,169 expelled

Adopted a resolute policy on Afghanistan

Advocated for practical tertiary education

Advocated for skills-based immigration policies

American companies now expanding rather than shipping jobs overseas

Announced sanctions targeting Iran’s Revolutionary Guards

Appointed a Transportation Secretary who is modernizing air traffic control

Appointed an Education Secretary who is correcting abuses of Title IX

Appointed an EPA administrator who has rescinded over 30 regulations

Appointed an FDA director who is facilitating generic drug competition

Appointed an Interior Secretary to improve forest management and expand users of public lands

Approved the Keystone pipeline

Called for international support of Iranian protesters

Canceled school lunch program that failed to force children to eat unpopular foods

Constructed test models of the border fence

Convinced Japan and South Korea to increase defense spending

Convinced NATO members to honor minimum financial commitments

Decertified Iranian nuclear treaty and sent it to Senate as constitutionally required

Designated North Korea as a state-sponsor of terrorism

Eliminated prohibition on interstate health insurance sales

Ended abuses of the student loan forgiveness program

Ended forced provision of contraception by Catholic nunneries

Ended requirement for state funding of Planned Parenthood

Ended research into Y2K preparedness

Ended rule requiring employers to report pay data by gender and race

Expanded school-choice efforts

FCC has begun to dismantle unnecessary Internet “Neutrality” regulations

Foreign firms building plants and creating jobs in the U.S.

Improved rules of engagement for military in combat situations

Initiated resistance “sue and settle” tactics against EPA

Initiated sanctions on Venezuelan dictatorship

Introduced regulatory budgeting requiring agencies to rescind two rules to issue a new one

ISIS bombing ramped up from about 20 to 500 or more airstrikes per week

ISIS ground campaign intensified; Raqqa captured, its fighters surrendering in large numbers

Issued a National Security Strategy

Kate's Law passed House now pending in Senate

Leveraged U.S. contribution to UN budget to force 5 percent budget cut and reduce staffs

NLRB reversed rule making indirect employee control sufficient to be “joint employees”

Nominated 60 judges, 21 confirmed, none yet denied

Nominated a new Fed chief

Nominated one Supreme Court judge, who was confirmed

Obtained release of Aya Hijazi after three years in Egyptian prison

Obtained release of Caitlan Coleman and husband from Haqqani

Obtained release of UCLA basketball players from China

Raised awareness of Opioid addiction crisis

Recognized Jerusalem as Israeli capital and announced plan to move U.S. embassy there

Reduced excess size of two national parks in Utah

Reduced permanent staff in all Cabinet agencies except VA, HS and Interior

Reduced White House staff by 110

Repeal of ACA mandate included in tax change bill

Requested increased funding for missile defense in face of North Korean and Iranian threats.

Rescinded (temporarily) the Jones Act, facilitating speedier emergency shipments to Puerto Rico

Rescinded 2015 Waters of the United States rule

Rescinded ban drilling in the Arctic and coastal areas

Rescinded coal mining ban on public lands

Rescinded criminalization of accidental killing of migratory birds

Rescinded Cuban cash give-away

Rescinded the “Clean Power Plan”


Rescinded the “War on Coal”

Rescinded threat to pull funds from schools that prohibit transgenders picking their bathrooms

Rescinded Title IX “guidance letter” on sexual harassment

Restored policy barring federal funding of abortions overseas

Restoring military capability in the face of personnel shortages and equipment failures

Revamped U.S. space program, assigning ambitious new objectives

Revised rules for screening potential terrorist tourists

Sanctioned Venezuela for human rights violations

Sanctuary cities legislation passed House pending in Senate

Signed 74 legislative bills (13 reversing executive orders) and 23 joint resolutions into law

Signed comprehensive tax change bill containing most of the changes he proposed

Signed legislation opening Arctic Natural Wildlife Reserve [ANWR] to oil drilling

Signed legislation to expedite firing of incompetent VA officials

Supreme Court largely upheld ban on selected travelers

Taking steps to control the rogue Consumer Finance Protection Agency

Targeted MS13 gang members for priority deportation

The president’s lawyers announced a framework for restoring the separation of powers:



Congress should cease delegating its legislative power to the executive branch

Courts should stop rubber-stamping regulations and orders that lack force of law

Executive will end informal “guidance documents” that undermine due process

U.S. energy production is on the upswing

U.S. sorties and assisted forces reduced ISIS to 2 percent of the area controlled in 2016

Unemployment is at 4.1 percent, a 17-year low

Withdrew from Paris Climate Accord

Withdrew from UNESCO (a warning to other wasteful, overstaffed UN agencies

Generalizing, under Mr. Trump we’re seeing a wide-ranging reduction of regulatory overreach and restoration of the separation of powers now specified in speeches to the Federalist Society, elements in a coherent policy aimed at making the US the dominant center for investment globally.

The National Security Policy concentrates on two areas. In the Near East, it focuses on Iran and drops the long-moribund Israeli-Palestinian negotiations until the latter become more realistic, less violent, and more dependable in keeping agreements in favor of the quietly emerging alliance of several Arab states with Israel.

In the Far East, it seeks increased cooperation with Australia, India, Japan, Philippines and Vietnam in efforts to halt Chinese imperialism in the South China Sea.

Overall, like it or not, Mr. Trump has enacted many of his campaign promises and is working to implement others. Perhaps of greatest distress to the Democrats, he has done so by turning the Alinsky playbook against the left which had thought of them as exclusively its own.

I realize that the usual partisan suspects won't be able to see the forest through the trees, but a job well done none the less!!

Idgaf about approval ratings when shit us getting done.

Government shutdown that the left is responsible for.

Country has been divided well before the Donald.

Still waiting for any actual proof of collusion. Pretty sure somewhere you've posted he'd be gone already.

The 13 shutdown was on the Republicans. This one is on the Dems.

One thing that is absolutely undebatable though is that the reason our military isn't getting paid right now is fully the fault of the Republicans... Specifically McConnell.

No dems want to give legal status to millions of illegals. Most people see it for what it is.

LOL, half of these are straight-up made-up. "Advocated for" or "convinced" or just vaporware like "ended abuse of student loans."

It's crazy to me how people get so angry about people who have been living here for decades, from the time they were kids, getting to continue to live here. Like somehow these people leaving will have some sort of real positive effect on their life. They're American citizens in everything but law. Something tells me if they were British or Australian, no one would care. I understand the concern with a possible culture impact due to an influx of another group, and I do not see that concern as racist like many on the left do, but sending them back at this point to a country they don't even know is just cruel and I feel it is definitely motivated by more than just a cultural concern. I'm all for enforcing our borders and I think it's crazy that to a lot of people, that automatically makes you racist when practically every other country in the world does it and no one bats an eye. But we let these people come here for decades and now we want to kick them out when they've built lives here, have families, followed the law and been good citizens? That's just so fucked up to me.

DIY is just angry because he was smart enough to choose to be born here while all the DACA kids were stupid enough to choose to be brought here as infants and toddlers. I mean it's just not fair, he is obviously a better person!

as Ryan pointed out a good bit of what is on that list is basically nonsense/vaporware but he did make a lot of promises on the campaign trail... its kind of his thing, he'll literally say just about anything to anyone so that they'll like him (previously known as a con man). he said alot and he's done a fair amount via the power of the Executive... doesn't actually mean the ones that aren't simply trumped up action were a good idea or that we're better off for him having done them but, yes, he did them.

and yet, most of the things that he's done have made him even less popular than he was when he started. if the argument is "he promised these things, he got elected, ergo the people want these things" then why does he constantly get less and less popular?

the biggest promises he made on the campaign trail were flat lies:
- who is paying for this wall again?
- is it a big, beautiful, physical wall or is it an ethereal "barrier"?
- what happened to the healthcare plan that was almost done and was SOOO great, would cover everyone for cheaper, etc?
- what about that secret plan to destroy ISIS that was his because he knew more than the generals?

also @torqueburner, its so nice to see you participate in a thread but I'm not sure how you're going to turn this one into moralistic rant on abortion so I'm not sure why you're here...

Are you talking about thread you bailed out of as soon as simple logic was brought in?
I'll add it in the same way you add the whole "doom and gloom" scenario to every thread that doesn't agree with your view. What I pointed out was relevant to where the thread was going.
The reason you avoid talking morals (as you have a few times), is because you have to adopt a Christian view to uphold that conversation, and as an atheist, You have no way to reconcile the two.

lol at only Christians have the ability to talk about morals... that is exactly why I don't engage in that conversation. I'm allergic to that level of stupid.

(respond if you want but I'm not going to engage any more than I already have - which I'm certain I'll regret even more than I'm doing already)

You don't engage because you know I'm right. You have absolutely zero rebuttal for this type of conversation.Period. It's the one time you can't run to your "data" or even science to think for you.I didn't say we couldn't talk morals. It's just you can't OBJECTIVELY talk morals because you don't have an OBJECTIVE foundation to begin with, and you know that. So you hide behind this "I'm smarter than you" then abruptly excuse yourself from the conversationas as if that's the, "end all, be all" of it.
It makes me laugh when I see you atheist defend a view of what's right or wrong. Where do you get what's right or wrong in the first place? Your opinion? Societies opinion? If you want to discuss this in another thread, I'd be more than obliged to show you the ropes phreak.
