Hugh Hewitt outlines the first 2 Trump years

I’m exhausted watching President Trump.  How does he do it?  He has accomplished so much and kept so many promises, yet runs all over the country campaigning for local and state candidates.

  • the repeal of the sequester on defense spending and
  • a massive military rebuild underway;

  • withdrawals from the awful Iran deal and, in effect,
  • the absurdist Paris accord;
  • the rollback of job-killing and bureaucrat-empowering regulations by the hundreds;
  • an economy surging while unemployment drops to 3.7 percent ;

  • a new government in Iraq against the expansionist Iranian theocrats.
