  1. Complete List of President Trump’s Major Accomplishments in His First Six Months #MAGA


    Of relevant interest smothered by the MSM:

    Decrease in Regulations

    One of the first things that President Trump did in office was to reduce the number or burdensome regulations put in place during the Obama era. In January President Trump signed his 2 for 1 executive order mandating that for every new regulation, two regulations needed to be revoked. Even far left Politico notes that significant new federal regulations since Trump’s inauguration have slowed to an almost total halt.

    Regulations cost Americans and American companies money to implement and maintain. Reducing or halting regulations allows companies to spend their money on more prudent money making areas.

    Other Results

    The US Manufacturing Index soared to a 33 year high in President Trump’s first six months which was the best number since 1983 under President Reagan.

    The Federal Reserve has increased interest rates three times since President Trump was elected into office in November. The Fed increased intereste rates only once in Obama’s 8 Years prior to the increase after President Trumps winning the election in November.

    Illegal immigration is down almost 70% under President Trump.

    NATO announced Allied spending is up $10 Billion because of President Trump.

    After being nominated by President Trump, Constitutionalist Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed and sworn in as Supreme Court Justice in early April.

    The President has signed around 150 executive orders, memoranda and proclamations as of July 19th, including:

    * Dismantling Obama’s climate change initiatives.
    * Travel bans for individuals from a select number of countries embroiled in terrorist atrocities.
    * Enforcing regulatory reform.
    * Protecting Law enforcement.
    * Mandating for every new regulation to eliminate two.
    * Defeating ISIS.
    * Rebuilding the military.
    * Building a border wall.
    * Cutting funding for sanctuary cities.
    * Approving pipelines.
    * Reducing regulations on manufacturers.
    * Placing a hiring freeze on federal employees.
    * Exiting the US from the TPP.

  2. Trump axes 860 Obama regulations, 179 from ‘secret’ list


    But, but, but, we were told Trump hasn’t accomplished anything so far being mired in the Democrat/MSM intrigue, leaks and exposes’ of collusion with Russia, Russia, Russia. Sounds like all wind and fury (projection) signifying nothing to cover up the complete lack of anything done by the Democrats and their impotence.

    What was that saying?

    “If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell like hell” Carl Sandburg
