Just another example of smoke and mirrors "trickle down economics". It didn't work way back when "snoozy" was in the White House and it won't work now. More nonsense from a president who spends more time "tweeting" than actually getting anything of substance accomplished.
Since it seems you guys missed it, here are the things this President has accomplished for America, while “twitting”:
Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017, giving one of the strongest inauguration addresses in American history. His first bill signed as president was to allow retired general and Defense Secretary nominee James Mattis to be confirmed. Trump had a very busy and productive first week, undoing Obama's legacy and instituting conservative executive orders. He had already made a reasonably large impact by his 50th day in office. President Trump accomplished many of his campaign promises by his 100th day in office, and he had already made significant progress by then, most notably by reducing regulations, enforcing American immigration laws, and appointing and having the Senate confirm his Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. In his first 100 days as president, Trump signed the most pieces of legislation of any president since Harry Truman and more executive orders than any previous president. By his 100th day, it was clear that Trump had disrupted the liberal political establishment consensus.
According to Reuters in late September 2017, President Trump had "begun to reshape American life in ways big and small." He undid many of Barack Obama's executive orders and worked to undo his entire political legacy. Not only did President Trump act as a disruptor, but he "set in motion an administration arguably more conservative than Ronald Reagan’s."
A poll taken shortly before the 100th day of Trump's presidency indicated that 96% of his supporters would have voted for him again had an election been held that day. A May 2017 poll showed Trump with 98% support among Republican military veterans and 54% overall. Similar polls taken mainly around the same time gave the same results. Additionally, a Pew Research poll indicated that over three-fourths of "white evangelical Protestants" approved of Trump's performance. These people, as well as members of the Tea Party Movement, did not believe the media and left-wingers in their war against President Trump. Evangelical Christians stood with President Trump, as seen in August 2017 when nearly every evangelical advisor to the president remained in their positions after Trump made politically incorrect comments related to white supremacism, while business and arts advisors resigned over the controversy and establishment Republicans criticized him. A POLITICO/Morning Consult poll taken just before the one-year anniversary of the 2016 presidential election found that 82% of Trump's voters would vote for him again.
It was reported on June 10, 2017, that President Trump had signed 37 bills into law, more than each of the previous four presidents, and the U.S. House had passed 158 bills, "making it the most productive in the modern-era," according to GOP House leaders. Overall, the legislature was relatively productive by mid-2017. An August 2017 Pew Research Center study found that the 115th Congress was more productive than any other Congress since 2007 and had the fifth highest count of substantive bills signed into law in the past 30 years.
