And all in under a year.
Now, compare that to the GOP, they got one Bill to POTUS.
But, compare all of this to the Dim party? They managed to spark riots, tare down historical statues, backed communists, BLM, support Muscum, get exposed for therapists and pedophiles they are and the list is endless, but atop all of that, they managed to destroy their own party. Now that's quite an accomplishment. :laugh:

Not too shabby for someone whose party leaders are incompetent and a media that is biased.

Let's not forget all the judges he has appointed. That in and of itself is major accomplishment.

Folks, take a dart and randomly throw at the list.
Everything on here is, in itself, massively groundbreaking, for example, I just grabbed one.

"Signed an Executive Order demanding that two regulations be killed for every new one creates. He beat that big and cut 16 rules and regulations for every one created, saving $8.1 billion."

That is a serious attack on big govt! :thumbsup:

Well.... there's another side to the 1st year, President Trump (Libs hate that) story.   And it's not hard to find the narrative, but here's a few highlights.  Call it TDS or Trump-Derangement-Syndrome.  We've seen it on TV, heard it on the Radio, and on the Internet.  Fully grown kids, having not gotten their way, flip out and scream at a full moon... and the same people say Trump is nuts..?

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/06/psychiatrist-who-raised-concerns-about-trumps-mental-health-wants-to-contain-him-for-an-evaluation/
Quote
Yale psychiatry professor Bandy Lee has been raising concerns about President Trump’s mental health for over a year and suggested in a new interview that Trump should be physically contained for an “urgent evaluation” to determine his mental state.
...
Lee responded, “We encounter this often in mental health. Those who most require an evaluation are the least likely to submit to one.
Come to think if it, Bandy - have you been evaluated lately for TDS?  You've been at this for OVER A FRIGGIN' YEAR, lady!!!  We use to say, "Man, you got issues..." or "Seriously, man, you need to get a life.." - not any more, "You got TDS, like, really bad, lady!"  That'll be $150.  CASH, please.

She has been warned, but those suffering from TDS are often so blinded they can't read.

Every four years, the United States goes through a protracted elections process for the highest office in the land. This year, the election seems like anything but a normal contest, that has at times devolved into outright vitriol. The unique atmosphere of this year’s election cycle may lead some to want to psychoanalyze the candidates, but to do so would not only be unethical, it would be irresponsible.

Since 1973, the American Psychiatric Association and its members have abided by a principle commonly known as “the Goldwater Rule,” which prohibits psychiatrists from offering opinions on someone they have not personally evaluated. The rule is so named because of its association with an incident that took place during the 1964 presidential election. During that election, Fact magazine published a survey in which they queried some 12,356 psychiatrists on whether candidate Sen. Barry Goldwater, the GOP nominee, was psychologically fit to be president. A total of 2,417 of those queried responded, with 1,189 saying that Goldwater was unfit to assume the presidency.

Goldwater sued and won damages, Fact magazine went out-of-business.  But, wait!  There's more!

Another Yale professor is making headlines, coming off the suspension of a "multicultural" social justice professor for racial insults against white people, the poor, and for those who do not have her intelligence and education level.
Whoopsie...!   What's this?  Does she not like White people?   A YEAR of hanging on to TDS, even wrote a book about it - oh wait!   Another book - everyone is trying to cash in on President Trump's success.  (Libs REALLY hate that).
All animals are created equal; Some just take longer to cook.   Survival is keeping an eye on those around you...
