In judging the administration so far, I think it’s fair to look back at my expectations after the last election about the positive things I thought we might get from a Trump presidency. I listed four main things: withdrawal from the Iran deal, withdrawal from the Paris agreement on global warming, the appointment of at least one good Supreme Court justice, and the repeal of Obamacare.
I also expected some distinct negatives, and the results have been mixed on those. Trump withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade deal—which still continues, but now we’re being shut out of it. On the more positive side, there are some broken Trump promises that I’m not so torn up about. Trump has pretty much caved on immigration and the “Dreamers.”
