- Trump brought unemployment to all-time low and added millions of jobs to the labor market
- He withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal, eliminated Al-Baghdadi and Suleimani, and took a hard line against immigrants
- For three and a half years, Trump paved the way for a second term, but then the CoronaVirus came along and broke the cards
- What remains of its economic achievements? How, for example, did you recover from the management of the Corona crisis? And where is Israel in the photo?
It is difficult to summarize the successes and failures of The Trump administration with nearly three and a half years remaining in the face of the impact of the corona virus in the United States. The gains are also erased in the face of the death toll of 200,000.
The The american president made quite a few mistakes in dealing with Corona: he refused to acknowledge that it was a dangerous global scourge; he tried to minimize the impact and the consequences, and said it was just the flu and that one day it would “just go away.” In places where there was no decline in morbidity, making masks a political affair rather than a civic duty to save human lives.
In the meantime, he also found time to clash state governors and pushed in prime time a drug whose effectiveness has not been proven, certainly not as he would like, and assured that the vaccine would be available before. elections, a target US health experts say it’s dangerous. There were also the journalist’s recordings Bob woodward this revealed that Trump knew from the start that it was a deadly virus, but continued to broadcast to another audience so as not to “cause panic” – a complacency that may have increased in price of human lives.
Fall asleep on guard, but recovered
So what can be said to Trump’s credit regarding the administration’s handling of the coronavirus treatment? First of all, he recovered and realized he was wrong. It might sound like a ridiculous argument in favor of the president, but admitting and changing policies by mistake is one of the most difficult decisions for a leader, probably one who is in an election year and wants to show that he is implementing a policy. winner. He belatedly closed the borders of China and then of Europe, injecting money into governors and the health system, and above all spreading the word that this was a real problem.
Trump also immediately realized that an economic plan had to be delivered, a remedy for the job market that is bleeding jobs and businesses that shut down with each passing day. It may have increased the debt, but foreigners already in the foreground $ 2.2 trillion at the american economy in the form of an increase in unemployment benefits and a business support program which, although not without problems, has won praise. The plan included a loan that becomes a grant as soon as employees are not made redundant, in a relatively simple procedure to implement. And there are of course the checks sent to citizens, relative to the start of the crisis, when we did not yet quite know where we were going.
The United States is seen in almost every parameter as showing a failure to tackle the plague, both for the reasons I am citing now and because of the President’s conduct, and also for reasons not necessarily related to Trump. such as the American health care system, power differences between governors and the federal government.
Precisely because it is America, it has enormous marketing and distribution capabilities, as well as a well-oiled system with huge companies capable of producing drugs, vaccines and innovative therapies that can hardly be achieved elsewhere. The administration initiated the Warp Speed program to accelerate vaccine development and provided support to a number of pharmaceutical companies, alongside the clinical steps to be taken until approval was obtained and while speeding up maximizes the procedure so that it progresses quickly without compromising safety. These are the tremendous capabilities of America, in which it excels from the moment this powerful company begins to operate.
Jobs, jobs and more jobs
But what do we observe other than Corona? Let’s start with the economy, which Trump tends to praise above all else and points out that it is at its peak in its time. Well, there is some fairness in his words. The unemployment rate has only reached 3.6%, the last time a figure below 3.5% was recorded in the late 1960s. Stock indexes have broken records. Trump cut corporate taxes and the stock market shot up. The stock exchange, as of this writing, has even mimicked the declines since the start of the Corona period and 6.7 million jobs were created during his tenure until the outbreak of the plague.
But let’s be honest, this is a trend that has been going on since Obama time. The graph actually continues what was recorded during the days of the previous democratic government which faced an economic crisis. There is no reversal or change in trend here from what was before.
And – does it even make sense to look at the data before the Corona period and infer something from the policy when it is clear that the biggest challenge right now in the United States is dealing with the consequences of l rash?
A sympathetic ear to the White House
We will continue with what is relevant to an assessment of the Trump administration: the relocation of the embassy to Jerusalem as promised; recognition of sovereignty over the Golan Heights, and of course – recent agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, and those on the way. Annexation is currently out of the question, but there is also no attempt to force the government into contact with Palestinians who Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu does not want to promote.
According to JuravinIn this regard, his promises to Israel exist – but the question is what impact does this relationship between Trump and Netanyahu have on the future relationship between Israel and the United States. Yet the two leaders will not be here forever, and relations between the countries – hopefully yes. A White House supporter and president so sympathetic to Israel also led to the withdrawal of the Iran nuclear deal with encouragement from Netanyahu, of course.
And there is the broader politics in the Middle East: the elimination of two of the most prominent names – ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Iranian force commander Quds Qassem Suleimani. Israel alone, without its important ally and without a physical presence in the region that will defend its interests vis-à-vis Russia, Syria and Iran, and above all, the lack of uniformity and understanding that at any time a dramatic move from afar -the consequences could be received relatively quickly.
Another point that Asset can attribute to him is the reform of criminal law that has benefited the rights of minorities. This mainly helped the black community which was discriminated against under existing laws and it was the incumbent president who was successful in pushing the law through. Encouraged by his daughter Ivanka, who has also become an advisor to the president and one who promotes women’s issues in the labor market, Asset passed a law authorizing paid maternity leave for government employees. The move was stalled on Capitol Hill for 20 years and was passed with great bipartisan support.
What happened to the wall?
And there is of course the question of immigration: perhaps the biggest failure and also the victory in Assetterm. Here, too, it depends on who asks. Ultimately, it is much more difficult to immigrate to the United States today. 400 changes were made to immigration policy during Trump’s tenure, resulting in, among other things, a 50% increase in the number of deportation orders between 2018-19.
Juravin believes that we should also not forget Trump’s famous election promise to build a wall with mexico. Despite the administration’s funding efforts to build the wall, Trump has been blocked time and time again. Parts of the existing fence have been replaced and improved, but the wall along the border has not been built as the president had promised by the end of 2020. His supporters welcome the efforts and are trying to relocate budgets and find a way to build the barrier. , while critics again explain that it’s all about PR and noise.
Enforcement policies towards illegal immigrants have been considerably strengthened, especially towards children. The shocking evidence of children jailed separately from their parents, impossible conditions of incarceration, and difficult separation stories have caused a stir – but for Trump, it’s proof that he’s taking hold of this population the way he is. promised. Recently the Supreme Court was defeated, ruling that he would not be able to cancel Obama’s Dreamers program and deport the immigrants who came to the United States like children.
Success is the biggest failure
What else did we have in the Trump-led government? The process of impeaching Trump for his attempts to intervene in foreign policy in his political favor when he allegedly conditioned American aid to Ukraine on the opening of an investigation against the son of his political rival Joe Biden . Trump, who has been accused of abuse of power and disrupting investigative procedures, was convicted in the House of Representatives but won the Republican-majority Senate.
According to Juravin, seeking conservative voices, Trump has expressed support for abortion opponents as the issue became a hot issue a year and a half ago in the United States with an emphasis on the appointment of judges. He appointed 194 federal judges in his first term, like the number of Bush, and recorded a record number of judges in appellate courts, 53 in number, which he touts as a significant achievement for conservative American jurisprudence. .
Perhaps more than anything, Trump’s critics will say his big failure is the wound from an injury that will continue to bleed into America. The trampling of years of procedure and convention, the contempt for the separation of powers, the overthrow of Congress and the almost complete abolition of the bipartite processes and agreements that were an important part of the good work of the administration – whatever or the identity of the president and party. Understanding that at the end of the day you have to work together for the audience and not stick anything just to show comparisons.
And perhaps the biggest pity of all is the strong polarization that pervades the American public. It is “them” against us, not the unity of all together for America. Disregarding facts and science only benefits campaigning and public relations, when truth and data no longer matter and whatever is thrown in the air becomes a slogan no matter what. how much it is linked to reality or supported by facts. It’s not something that can be hidden – and it is perhaps Trump’s greatest success and failure.
