If you ask the Democrats, President Donald Trump and the current Republican Congress are useless and haven’t accomplished anything.
However, this couldn’t be any more far from the truth. In fact, Trump’s Congress has signed more bills into law than his four most recent predecessors.
“To date, President Trump has signed 37 bills into law, placing him ahead of the last four administrations,” stated Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy in an address to the media.

Conservative Tribune reports:
By way of comparison, President Obama’s administration had only signed 24 bills into law, President George W. Bush’s administration had signed 15, President Bill Clinton had signed 33 bills and President George H.W. Bush had signed 35 bills into law.
But the comparison didn’t end at just bills passed by both chambers of Congress and then signed by the president. The GOP-led House has also been passing legislation at a much faster rate than previous Houses under prior administrations, as seen in the graphic above tweeted by Republican Illinois Rep. Rodney Davis.
“The Republican-led House has passed 158 bills, making it the most productive in the modern-era,” noted the House leadership duo, according to The Times, pointing out that Obama’s Democrat-led House during the same time frame had only passed 131 pieces of legislation.
The next time you hear a whiny liberal criticizing the Trump administration, alert them to these simple facts. The Trump administration is getting things done and working hard to improve the quality of life for hardworking Americans.
