Congress passed three significant bills before the Memorial Day recess that Mr. Trump has signed or will sign into law in coming weeks - the Dodd-Frank overhaul, a move that supporters say will spur lending by small banks in small towns nationwide
legislation to reform Veterans Affairs services
and a “right to try” measure allowing terminal patients access to drugs that haven’t received final approval from the Food and Drug Administration.
In addition to legislative wins:
⦁ A record-breaking string of confirmations of conservative judges to federal appeals courts.
⦁ Executive action by Mr. Trump to reverse decades of federal funding for family-planning clinics that offer abortions.
⦁ The opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.
⦁ The withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
⦁ The issuance of new orders to reform civil service rules to speed termination of poor-performing government workers.
⦁ Mr. Trump’s win on NFL policy that will bar players from protesting the national anthem on the sidelines.
There are other victories, such as the successful confirmation battles of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and CIA Director Gina Haspel.
In his Memorial Day message, the president emphasized the economy, which is humming along with a historically low unemployment rate of 3.9 percent.
“Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more,” Mr. Trump tweeted.
The White House is still entertaining hope of getting more accomplished legislatively this year, including passage of a farm bill and confirmation of more judges.
The administration also is working with House and Senate Republicans on another tax-reform package that would make permanent the individual tax cuts.
