Some may claim that the first year in office for President Donald Trump has been a disaster. But those naysayers are proven wrong with a laundry list of Trump accomplishments for 2017, says Stephen E. Strang, author of the new, best-selling book God and Donald Trump.
Most recently, Trump fulfilled one of his biggest promises of the year by signing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on December 22—a historic tax overhaul that will impact American families and American businesses. And many of the president's actions over the past year were in tune with the evangelical supporters who helped elect him.
"From the beginning, Donald Trump understood the importance of the Christian vote," Strang wrote in God and Donald Trump. "He courted evangelical support, spoke openly about his faith, accepted invitations to speak to the Christian media and promised to stand strong for the issues that would bring Christians to the polls. It proved to be a winning strategy."
That strategy continued into Trump's first year in the White House, Strang said, with many promises fulfilled, including transforming the Department of Veterans Affairs, pursuing fair and reciprocal trade deals, focusing on an America-first foreign policy and military, unleashing economic potential, eliminating job-killing regulations and wasteful spending, unlocking American energy, achieving a massive reduction in illegal immigration, protecting religious liberties and appointing a conservative Supreme Court Justice in Neil Gorsuch. In fact, the Senate confirmed 12 of Trump's circuit court picks this year—"the largest number of appellate judges confirmed during the first year of any president in history," reported The Daily Signal.
