Trump begins reclamation of legacy with list of policy wins, from C19 vaccine to Mid East peace
“Our agenda was not about right or left, it wasn’t about Republican or Democrat, but about the good of a nation, and that means the whole nation,” said President Trump.
Amid the flurry of preparations for President Trump’s departure Wednesday morning, the Trump White House released an extensive list of what it touts as its accomplishments, including shepherding a COVID-19 vaccine in record time, tax and regulatory relief, criminal justice reform, revised trade deals and energy independence.
As estranged allies, including even former aides and cabinet members, fret that Trump’s considerable policy legacy has been indelibly tarnished by the Jan. 6 overrunning of the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob protesting certification of Joe Biden’s electoral victory, the hefty list marks a first attempt in what promises to be a long post-presidential campaign to rescue that legacy from the damage it suffered in the final weeks of the Trump presidency
In foreign policy, the White House noted that under its watch, the United States helped usher in historic Middle East peace deals, increase NATO funding from allies, defeat 100 percent of ISIS’ territorial caliphate in Iraq and Syria, freeing nearly 8 million civilians, killed both the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Iranian Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani.
Trump touted many of the same items on the list in a taped White House farewell address released Tuesday afternoon.
“It was about ‘America First’ because we all wanted to make America great again,” Trump said in his video remarks. “We restored the principle that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Our agenda was not about right or left, it wasn’t about Republican or Democrat, but about the good of a nation, and that means the whole nation.”
Though often pilloried by the media for his compulsive tweeting habits, Trump’s substantive policy accomplishments were swift, numerous and consequential. Due in part, however, to an adversarial Democratic House under Speaker Nancy Pelosi during the second half of his term, many of his actions were executive orders that could quickly be rescinded by President-elect Joe Biden.
The White House list includes dozens of executive orders, ranging from stripping discretionary federal grant funding from “sanctuary cities” to invoking the Defense Production Act during the coronavirus to prioritizing getting the COVID-19 vaccine to American citizens before sending it to other nations.
