Donald John Trump is the 45th and current President of the United States, elected into office on January 20, 2017. Prior to his inauguration, and following into his presidency, President Trump has faced a never-ending flow of media attention. His presidency is an extremely controversial one. Many American citizens love him and hope he will bring America out of debt, and end the war on terror. Other citizens, and majority of Hollywood and the media industry, cannot see past his personality. The president is criticized for every move he makes, both political and personal. He has made multiple mistakes that affect the way people view him, especially his twitter account.
One of the biggest debates of his campaign and presidency is fake news, which he says strongly effects the public and shines a negative light upon him. Many people believe in the last election they were voting for the lesser of two evils. So the new President was apparently just that. They also believe he should be given a chance, there is nothing that can be done at this point, people need to stop protesting long enough to see they are not embarrassing him, they are embarrassing themselves and America as a country. Others demand his impeachment. Whether you like him or not, he is not a waste of space, even though many people believe that to be true. Nine Accomplishments made by President Trump in 2017 include
President Trump had a total of 12 federal appellate court nominees, making him the only president in United States history to have more than 11 appellate appointments during his first year in office.
The president signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on Dec. 22. It featured the largest tax cuts since 1986.
Individual mandate repeal
Through tax reform, Trump fulfilled another key campaign promise: repealing Obamacare’s individual mandate.
During his campaign, Trump promised to do away with two existing regulations for each new one his administration enacts. This year, as officials canceled or delayed more than 1,500 regulations in the first 11 months of Trump’s presidency. The administration has said Trump ultimately cut 22 regulations for each new one enacted this year. Saving taxpayers billions of dollars over the coming years. Trump has repeatedly credited his deregulation push with the economic growth that has flourished during his first year in office.
Cutting government waste
Three months into his presidency, President Trump issued an executive order directing every federal agency to determine “where money is being wasted [and] how services can be improved.”
Despite initially attracting criticism from across the political spectrum for its botched rollout. Trump’s so-called travel ban scored a major victory later this year when the Supreme Court ruled to allow the entire policy to take effect.
Defeating the Islamic State
The Trump administration made a series of strategic decisions this year. Decisions that supporters say made the difference in the years-long battle against the extremist group in Iraq and Syria. The terror organizations saw its numbers and territorial holdings decrease this year.
Recognition of Jerusalem
Despite pressure to keep a status quo that his predecessors had left untouched for decades in Israel, Trump made waves on the international stage this month when he formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He announced plans to move the U.S. embassy there from its present location in Tel Aviv.
Withdrawal from Paris climate agreement
Trump ultimately followed through on a campaign promise to withdraw from the agreement despite objections from several of his closest advisers.
To conclude, whether the public agrees or disagrees with his actions, he followed through on many campaign promises, even when met with criticism. It can be argued, are these all actual accomplishments? But that decision is up to the reader and their own political and personal opinion.
