Trump ‘outpacing Reagan’ in conservative accomplishments

Donald Trump and President Ronald Reagan

President Trump’s administration already has outpaced President Reagan in its implementation of agenda items proposed by a prominent conservative Washington, D.C., think tank.

Nearly two-thirds of the 334 items called for by the Heritage Foundation‘s legendary “Mandate for Leadership” blueprint have been accomplished in Trump’s first year in office, reported the Washington Examiner.

The Heritage Foundation’s Thomas Binion said Trump has implemented 64 percent of the “unique policy recommendations” from the group while Reagan had completed 49 percent at this stage in his presidency.

“We’re blown away,” Binion, director of congressional and executive branch relations at Heritage, told the Examiner.

He said Trump “is very active, very conservative, and very effective.”

The accomplishments cover a “huge spectrum” of issues, he said, including foreign policy, deregulation, immigration, tax reform and health care.
