President Trump the year 2017 achievements

Of the tax reform, military achievements, here is a look at President Trump is a success a year after he took office.

If congressional Republicans and President of the trump for a tax-holidays at the White house occurred shortly before Christmas, a triumphant Mitch McConnell began to tick away, the President successes in the first year.

The offers of the Kentucky Republicans, who had underlined a rocky relationship with trump in times of how, despite internal strife, which has excited the given media – the Trump administration, his party has much to crow about in the year 2017.

Of the confirmation of the Supreme court, Neil from gorsuch regulation rollbacks on Wall Street gains, to the passage of the tax debt and the more the leadership of ISIS in the Middle East – so McConnell, “This was a year of extraordinary success for the trump administration.”

To be sure, there are many choice of the promise that Trump will not meet, in his first year: a wall has not yet been built, on the border with Mexico, ObamaCare has not been repealed (although the individual mandate) and an infrastructure package has not passed yet in Congress. Meanwhile, Trump handicapped at the White house in times of Special Counsel Robert Müller Russia’s investigation and the daily drama, often the result of a tweet fired by the President himself.

“This was a year of extraordinary success for the trump administration,” Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell.


But Republicans inside and outside of the White house claim that the media, the hammer Trump rode on each, he gets him the credit for the year of 2017, his administration has in a combative political environment.

A senior administration official said that while tax reform has often been described as Trump, the first major legislative win, you have counted, 81-piece set of trump-backed legislation, now law.

“This is in addition to the 15 Congress-review of administrative acts, according to which the President took a look at the laws that were passed without the benefit of congressional review, and decided to cancel, or undo,” the official said.

Before leaving for Florida for the holidays, Trump on Twitter tout took his administration “long & nice list” of services. He predicted that the “Fake Mainstream media is NEVER about our services, speak to your end of the year reviews.”

“The President has managed some absolutely historical things during this last year.” Thank you, Charlie Kirk of turning point USA. Unfortunately, the Fake Mainstream media is NEVER about our services, speak to your end of the year reviews. We compile a long & nice list.

Here is a look at some of the President of the biggest political victories in his first year in office:


With just days left in the year, Congress Trump passed its biggest legislative win by sending a $1.5 Billion tax package on his Desk. He signed it in the Oval Office shortly before leaving Washington for the holidays. Trump, who had been traveling the country for months, calls for Congress to act on taxes, calls it “the largest tax cut in the history of our country.”

The tax bill cuts the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent and reduced the prices for most of the seven individual tax brackets.

While critics of the law panned out as a great tax relief for the rich and corporations, the overhaul doubled the standard deduction, the administration argues, the trump, is a boon for the middle class.


The legislation also allows Trump to say he’s dismantle ObamaCare: the bill is a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which require the individual mandate to buy American health insurance or face a penalty.

Still not the President of the decryption of the former President Barack Obama’s executive action legacy has paused, mainly due to regulatory rollbacks in Congress.

“You have finished the over-regulation of the American economy,” McConnell told him to celebrate as the White house.

Trump, the EPA has moved to roll back the Clean Power to wipe out the Plan and he has to kill the Congressional Review Act, an obscure rule of law, a wave of last-minute rules pushed through before he took office.


After the inauguration, the President signed an executive order mandating that the two rules must be eliminated for every one created. The White house says the administration has exceeded the ratio, the claim to have eliminated 22 of the regulations for each new regulation.

Trump has fallen in love with other actions to conservatives, including mobile, from the Paris climate agreement the green light to Dakota access and the Keystone XL oil pipelines and the exit from the Trans-Pacific partnership.

But the Republicans are also excited about its nominations to the lower courts. The trump administration was deliberately come to the choice of conservative, young-of-court nominees, which could remain on the bench for many years to come. From the middle of December, 19 of Trump 66 nominated in total this year have been confirmed by the Senate.

“We have the Supreme court cemented to the right of the middle for a generation,” McConnell said. “Mr. President, thank you for your nominees, we have 12 circuit court judges in the place — most of all, because the circuit court system in 1891.”
