The Trump Presidency - A Journal of Accomplishments

This is a journal of all successes and failures of Trump as president.  I wanted to keep a log simply to be able to reference them for those who attack him.


November 10, 2016 - Canadian Prime Minister is already saying he will sit down with Trump to renegotiate NAFTA.  It won't take long.

November 17, 2016 – Ford decides not to move its Kentucky plant to Mexico following the election. -

November 19, 2016 - Only took 10+ days, but already Mexico's president is agreeing to sit down with Trump to "modernize" NAFTA.  Jobs are coming home.

November 29, 2016 - Carrier decides not to move its plant to Mexico, saving 800-1000 jobs.  -

December 6, 2016 – Japanese investor, owner of Sprint, to invest $50B in the US and create 50K new jobs.  It was speculated that Son chose to invest this money in the US because he felt the situation under Trump would make it more feasible for Sprint to complete their merger to T-Mobile.  But let’s get real.  That’s exactly why businesses invest money…to make money.  So, they create 50000 new jobs in the process…let’s ignore that. -

December 28, 2016 – He begins the process of helping veterans by bringing in heads of major non-profit hospitals to negotiate them allowing veterans access to their services using their veterans benefits.  -

January 3, 2017 – Trump convinces Ford to build a new plant in Michigan creating 700-2000 new jobs for Americans.  -

January 6, 2017 – Fiat Chrysler to invest $1B in new projects in the US.  They tried to deny that Trump had anything to do with it, but really, let’s get real.  Businesses don’t spend their money in an environment where they won’t make money in return.  -

January 11, 2017 – Trump divests himself from his business completely.  Even though the law doesn’t require him to do so, he did it anyway.  He handed everything over to his sons and a business partner.  He made sure there were no ties at all.  He is excluded from decisions.  He has no informational rights.  He has made sure that the company is making no international deals during his presidency.  He made sure that the is an ethics attorney signing off on all deals to make sure there are no conflicts of interest.  He even cancelled all deals that were already in the process but unfinished till now...costing him and his children and others tens of millions of dollars.  He did everything necessary to make sure that the American people have no reason to believe he is using the Oval Office for his own benefit. -

January 11, 2017 - German software company SAP will be adding 400+ jobs to their Pittsburgh and Philadelphia facilities this year. -

January 16, 2017 - IMF adjusted their growth forecast for the USA because of the "Trump factor"...raising it to 2.5% for 2017 compared 1.6% for 2016.  A reminder that Obama was the first two term US president never to experience a single year of 3% growth or better.  -

Post Inauguration - Year One
