Bit by Bit, Trump Has Been Methodically Undoing Obama Policies
Despite the negative press that President Trump receives on a regular basis, he has been steadily working to undo Obama’s policies and help make America great again.
Russian scandals, staff shakeups, and an adversarial media hasn’t stopped Trump from muscling through the seemingly insurmountable pile of failed policies and sorting most of them into the round file.
From abortion to energy to climate change and personal investments, Trump is keeping his promises in methodically overturning regulations and policies adopted when Barack Obama was president.
It hasn’t all been smooth sailing.
Trump recently failed to fulfill his pledge to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, which continues to stand as Obama’s most recognizable domestic policy achievement. Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan couldn’t persuade enough fellow Republicans to back new health care legislation last month. Ryan pulled the measure just before a scheduled House vote.
Trump has had better outcomes in other areas.
Trump signed an executive order last week to deliver on his pledge to unravel Obama’s efforts to curb global warming.
