It’s Not Him. It’s You
Trump racked up the most extraordinary record of accomplishments of any president's first term. By lowering taxes and slashing a record number of regulations, he brought employment figures to unprecedented heights, with job numbers for blacks, Latinos, and Asians the highest ever. He reversed the export of manufacturing jobs abroad, replaced NAFTA with a much better North American trade agreement, and improved the trade imbalances with Europe and China. Median household income reached a new peak; GDP and consumer confidence hit - and, until the COVID lockdown, stayed at - remarkably high levels.
He initiated extensive criminal-justice reforms, took action on drug
prices, improved VA health care, and introduced Right-to-Try. He made the US
oil independent and turned the country into a net natural gas exporter for the
first time in over half a century. He pressured allies into pouring tens of
billions of dollars more into NATO. He introduced the Space Force. He moved the
US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, recognized the Golan Heights as Israeli
territory, and arranged peace deals between Israel and the UAE, Israel and
Bahrain, and Serbia and Kosovo.
