The answer?  For better or worse, he has accomplished a ton – even though a good many “journalists” – either from ignorance or Trump hatred – are telling you otherwise.

Want something more than my opinion on the subject?  OK.

Here is an enumeration of what Trump has accomplished in 2017, compiled by CNN’s Michael Smerconish – no fan of Trump’s by a long shot.


As first years go, how does that stack up?

In considering Smerconish’s commentary, it should be remembered that President Trump had a 55% majority in the House of Representatives and a 52% majority in the Senate.

But, then, it would also be reasonable to compare his accomplishments to those of Barack Obama, who, in his first year, had 60% majorities in both the House and the Senate.  Do that and either Trump looks extremely accomplished, Obama looks extremely unaccomplished, or both (I pick door #3).

In any event, Michael Smerconish has – probably to the anguish of CNN’s people – provided us with an excellent, evenhanded review of Donald Trump’s first year.

Make of it what you will.

  • Can you imagine if Trump would have had a filibuster proof majority in the senate? Wow! Talk about winning.
