I think President Trump is doing a great job thus far, given he’s only been in office a number of weeks. He is laying the groundwork to do exactly what he promised to do on the campaign trail. He has rolled back a number of Obama’s executive orders. He has selected a great candidate for the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Justice Scalia. He has put together an impressive cabinet comprised of individuals with political, military and most importantly real-world business experience. These people aren’t just more bureaucrats. These are people who have built and run successful businesses. They’ve led men and women in the military. So, overall I think the cabinet is going to prove very successful in helping forward the agenda that the President laid out. I am still very pleased to see him taking on the media. In fact, I would almost prefer that he not have press conference but instead get his message out to the people via on-going campaign rallies. I think it’s great that he has been meeting with business leaders to hear their concerns and get their input and ideas. This is what great leaders do. They surround themselves with good people and get the input from various stakeholders. He’s making progress on tax reform proposals, border security, trade, job creation, and immigration reform. These are all things that were totally neglected over the last eight years that have resulted in the mess we have here in America—low growth, high unemployment (if you look at the real numbers), unsafe borders, high taxes and the list goes on. Time will tell if he will be able to make a huge difference, but at least he’s continuing to talk about the issues and making an effort to address them. I think we’ll see good things happening in the future.
