Making America Great Again: Trump has signed more than 40 pieces of legislation to enact his agenda

Behind the facade of ‘scandal,’ the president has been consistently working with Congress to enact his agenda

(National SentinelPresidential leadership: Most days the Google News feed is full of stories predominantly featuring media reports attacking President Donald J. Trump and his administration.

The “Russia hacking and collusion” dual hoax factors heavily into such coverage.

But behind that facade of ‘scandal,’ the president has been consistently working with Congress to enact the agenda he – and the GOP Congress – were sent to Washington to enact.

As reported by The Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump continues to sign legislation, an achievement he deemed “nice” Friday.

The bills include an act to improve weather forecasting, a long-term vision for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and reforms for the Department of Veteran Affairs.

The three pieces of legislation all had bipartisan support.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Transition Authorization Act of 2017 calls for a $19.5 billion budget for NASA — an increase from $19.3 billion in 2016 — and also asks that NASA create a plan for getting humans “near or on the surface of Mars in the 2030s.”

Trump made space exploration a priority during his campaign.

As for the weather legislation, even the always-critical, always-conspiratorial Washington Post praised it as “the first major weather legislation enacted since the early 1990s.”

TheDC noted further:

Another bipartisan law Trump signed was the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act. This bill allows for greater ease to punish wrongdoers and gives whistleblowers more protections.

VA Secretary David Shulkin, an Obama-era holdover, has also praised Trump’s management style, saying he is bringing decisiveness to the troubled VA along with a real desire to move quickly to implement bold reforms, not just tinker around the edges.

The other bills, while not as consequential, still involve Trump carrying out his agenda. The American Law Enforcement Heroes Act prioritizes giving federal grants to law enforcement agencies that hire veterans. The Public Safety Officers’ Benefits Improvement Act works to reduce the time families of fallen officers have to wait to receive survivor benefits.

Fifteen of the 40 signed bills repeal Obama-era regulations. Examples of these regulations include a rule that made it tougher for states to drug test welfare recipients and a regulation that imposed permitting requirements on mining sites. These bills signed by President Trump utilized the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to nullify any rule or regulation created in the previous administration’s final six months.

The point is, the president has been steadily working to enact his Make America Great Again agenda, which is precisely why voters in a majority of states sent him to D.C.

What’s sad is that Trump Derangement Syndrome within the “mainstream” media, which has reached epidemic proportions, has prevented most media outlets from honestly reporting the president’s, and Congress’, progress.
