President Trump said Monday he has already accomplished more than ANY President in U.S. history except FDR.
Sorry, Trump. That’s not even close to being true. Accomplishments are measured by how much legislation you sign, it’s measured by how well that legislation benefits the country.
“Never has there been a president, with few exceptions — case of FDR, he had a major depression to handle — who has passed more legislation and who has done more things than what we’ve done,” Trump said during his first-ever Cabinet meeting at the White House.
The president sought to use the Cabinet meeting to show his administration is getting things done, pushing back on the notion the Russia investigation is stymying his agenda on healthcare, taxes and infrastructure.
Trump also said he would hold a news conference in two weeks to detail his administration’s plan to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The president has thus far been mum on his plan to overhaul the ISIS fight. He last promised such a news conference on May 21, but he never held one.
Critics pounced on Trump’s comments as yet another example of the president exaggerating his record of achievements.
Trump has yet to sign a major piece of legislation, and his highest-profile executive order, the travel ban, has been put on hold by the courts.

President Trump clearly doesn’t realize that undoing President Obama’s work isn’t progress.
