Will no man say, ‘Amen?’
In less than two weeks, we will note the one-year anniversary of the Trump presidency. I know your first reaction is – has it only been a year? With the Trump Campaign’s fractured and bellicose style rolling straight into a disjointed and revolving door presidency, it does seem like this show has played for much longer than 365 days.
Democrats add to the raucous clamor with continual cries of alarm and predictions of disaster from the latest Trump proposal whether warranted or not. Congressional Democrats have not helped their party with their game plan of obstruct and delay. The party of FDR appears to be “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” (Sorry, my first Shakespeare reference for the day.)
In the end, the past year played out much as any thinking person would expect. Trump was unprepared to be President and out of his depth in coping with the magnitude of the office. On the other hand, we could expect the experienced businessman to select good people for his cabinet who would quietly get the business of government done. And that is what has happened.
The Year of the Donald has scored significant accomplishments, despite impressions to the contrary created by carping Democrats and pliant media outlets. Here are a few items checked off this administrations “to do” list.
Defeat of the Islamic State
Stock Market at 25,000
Lowest unemployment in years
From White House staff to clerks in Foggy Bottom, the number of federal employees slashed along with other waste.
Recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel
Repeal of the individual health insurance mandate
Elimination of many federal regulations
Withdrawal from Paris Accord on climate control
While I may not agree with every single point…
