Everyone should be proud of our President who keeps America’s interests first, and works diligently to keep his campaign promises. On Google I typed “President Trump’s accomplishments” and found many long lists. I encourage everyone to do their own searches so they can be informed of the facts. No matter whether you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent, remember that no one knows who you voted for unless you tell them. Here is a short list from one site listing Trump’s accomplishments. I deleted a lot of important items due to newspaper space limitations.

• More Americans now employed than ever in history.

• Unemployment claims are at a 49-year low.

• Median household income highest ever.

• African-American, Hispanic, Asian, and Women unemployment lowest ever.

• Lowest unemployment for Americans without a high school diploma.

• Veterans’ unemployment lowest in 20 years.

• 3.9 million Americans off food stamps.

• Signed the biggest package of tax cuts and reforms in history.

• Small businesses have the lowest tax rate in more than 80 years.

• Approved Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines.

• Record number of government regulations eliminated.

• More affordable healthcare options for Americans.

• Approved more affordable generic drugs than ever.  Drug companies freezing or reversing price increases.

• Reformed Medicare program to stop hospitals from overcharging seniors for drugs.

• $6 billion in new funding to fight opioid epidemic.

• Signed VA Choice Act and expanded VA tele-health services, walk-in-clinics, and same-day urgent primary and mental health care.

• Withdrew the United States from the job-killing Paris Climate Accord.

• Cancelled the anti-coal, so-called Clean Power Plan.

• Secured record $700 billion in military funding; $716 billion next year.

• NATO allies spending $69 billion more on defense.

• Withdrew from the horrible, one-sided Iran Deal.

• Historic U.S.-Mexico Trade Deal to replace NAFTA.

• Tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum to protect our national security.

• Imposed tariffs on China in response to China’s forced technology transfer, intellectual property theft, and their abusive trade practices.

• Net exports are on track to increase by $59 billion.

• Improved vetting and screening for refugees, and switched focus to overseas resettlement.

• Building the wall on our southern border for our security and protection.

Just think what all can be accomplished if both side of Congress would work together.

Thank you posting just a few of the changes made to correct th3 direction Obama/Bush/Clinton tried to take us. We citizens need to quit listening to the news and look around. Every grocery store, restaurant, business, and entertainment venue is packed with people spending the money they are making RIGHT now under the law changes made in the last 3 years. Forget the polls, forget the partisan politics. Of course there are exceptions, especially if your company is affected by tariff changes that will balance eventually or be replaced with something else. Examine your own life and admit living in the USA under President Trump is the best thing that could happen, because we are all prospering.

The submitted list by Mr. Jones is just a fraction of how screwed up and regulated we had become. After the entire media blitz to discredit the man fails, Trump/Pence will be reelected in 2020 by a landslide. The reason for this is the large Hispanic voting base have awoke to the fact that what the media tells them and what their financial status has become are diametrically opposite and they will vote for Trump, even if later they will claim otherwise.

The bottom line is if Trump legally moved $10K into some of the BS readers hands, they would still curse him (but grab the cash without a thought).

Blert, Under 8 years of Bush Republicans the economy crashed and Obama cleaned up the mess. Trump is riding the wave of Obama's success. Trump's deficit is higher than ever and will surely lead to the usual Republican crash of the economy. Trump is a liar, con artist, racist, white supremacist who has attempted to destroy every branch of US Intelligence, and courts dictators, conspiracy theories. Republicans are retiring in record numbers and know Trump will be ousted from office soon and arrested for his crimes. Republicans will lose by landslides over healthcare and high prescription costs. Trump's legacy will be low unemployment, bribery, lies, manipulation, chaos, crimes and fraud, the worst President in history.
