Main article: Donald Trump achievements

This article is a non-exhaustive list of miscellaneous political achievements by U.S. President Donald Trump, his administration, and Congress.

General

  • On January 5, 2017, the U.S. House passed a motion condemning Obama's allowing a leftist anti-Israel resolution to pass in the UN.[1][2] Additionally, Trump voiced his strong support for Israel during his transition.[3][4] On April 27, 2017, all 100 members of the U.S. Senate sent a letter to United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres demanding an end to the anti-Israel bias in the UN.[5] After that, the U.S. condemned the UN after the organization ignored the letter from the Senate.[6] On June 5, 2017, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution observing the 50th anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem and called for President Trump to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem,[7] and Congress commemorated the event.[8]
  • January 20, 2017—On the day he took office, Trump returned the bust of UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill to the Oval Office that Obama removed when he took office.[9] He also accepted the United Kingdom's offer to re-loan the second identical bust of Churchill, which Obama removed and returned after the first loan expired.[10]
  • January 28, 2017—Trump signed an executive order banning administration officials from lobbying their federal agencies for five years, as well as banning them for life from lobbying foreign nations and political parties.[11][12]
  • March 21, 2017—President Trump signed a bill into law not only funding NASA, but setting a goal of having humans visit Mars "in the 2030s" and potentially colonizing another planet.[13] The bill also funded the agency, the first time such a bill was signed into law in seven years.[14] On June 30, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order re-establishing the National Space Council.[15]
  • May 5, 2017—President Trump attached a signing statement to a five-month spending bill he signed, ignoring several liberal provisions,[16] such as a statement ordering the administration not to enforce federal marijuana laws in states with medical marijuana.[17]

Political appointments

  • January 30, 2017—Trump showed he would not tolerate incompetent leftist administration officials when he fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates (a left-wing Obama holdover) when she refused to defend his refugee and immigration ban executive order.[18][19] Trump emulated Ronald Reagan's firing of the striking PATCO workers in 1981 by doing so,[20] contrary to the mainstream media spin.[21] That same night, Trump replaced the acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (another Obama holdover) with a more competent official who had a reputation for enforcing immigration laws.[22]
  • April 21, 2017—President Trump replaced Obama-appointed Vivek Murthy, who was opposed by gun rights groups, as Surgeon General of the United States.[23][24] During the same month, the Trump Administration reassigned two career government officials who had been strongly criticized by conservative organizations.[25]

Productivity

  • Despite opposition to Trump from the Left, it was reported in April 2017 that congressional Republicans were more united during Trump's presidency than in any other time in recent U.S. political history.[26]
  • 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.[27] Overall, the legislature was relatively productive by mid-2017.[28]

Proclamations

  • January 20, 2017—The day he was inaugurated, President Trump instituted a national day of patriotism for the country,[29] and a few days later Trump officially designated his inauguration day the National Day of Patriotic Devotion.[30][31]
  • May 1, 2017—President Trump proclaimed that day as Loyalty Day, to "recognize and reaffirm our allegiance" to American values, such as "individual liberties, to limited government, and to the inherent dignity of every human being."[32][33]

Failures

  • As of early April 2017, several Obama-holdovers still held their positions in the Trump Administration with little to no indication of leaving.[34][35] President Trump did not fire Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen, who targeted conservative groups under the Obama Administration.[36] President Trump also appointed at least one NeverTrump individual to the White House.[37] Due to the delay in Senate confirmations, Obama holdovers were able to continue Obama-era policies, such as removing references in official documents of "genocide" against Christians and other religious minorities by ISIS.[38]
  • George Nesterczuk, Trump's nominee to be Director of the Office of Personnel Management, withdrew in the face of long confirmation delays and opposition from federal employee unions.[39]
  • The Trump Administration sent delegates to the 2017 meeting of the Bilderberg group, a secretive globalist elitist group.[40]
