It has been almost four years since the 45th President of the United States was sworn into office. President Donald Trump has come a long way, from being a businessman in the hospitality industry to becoming the most powerful man in the United States of America.
The historical journey began on the 20th of January in 2017 when the President was inaugurated and assumed his duties as the presiding office of the United States. President Trump’s first year as President saw a great deal of activity, ranging from the most active period of presidential executive orders since World War II, to the stock market reaching record heights even as the United States withdrew from the Paris Climate Agreement.
Fast forward to 2021 and the President has nearly completed his fourth year in the White House. A great deal of energy has been focused on job creation and helping the economy recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Policies such as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 have helped Americans save money in their paychecks.
It was also during the fourth year of President Trump’s presidency that the United States was able to secure the most comprehensive trade negotiation with China since the end of the Cold War, through the signing of the Phase One Trade Agreement in January. This agreement is expected to benefit both countries in terms of trade and investment.
The President’s tenure also saw some controversy, such as the failed attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act or the failed attempt to build the controversial border wall. He also introduced a controversial travel ban for citizens from several Muslim-majority nations. However, the President’s overall focus has been on increasing job growth and economic growth.
The fourth presidential year for President Donald Trump has been a time of unprecedented activity and accomplishment. As the United States enters its fourth year of President Trump’s presidency, we can only monitor and observe the effect these decisions have had on ordinary citizens and the country as a whole. The coming year will certainly bring its own set of changes and challenges that will need to be navigated – and it all starts with the President.
