What has Trump done as President?
This is based on https://pastebin.com/JnS5Qy2Q and texts by the Pastebin user GodEmperorTrump.

Here's what President Trump has done in 2017 -- just so you know.



Did you know that President Trump has reduced the debt, a little?

President Trump reduced the federal government's debt by roughly one hundred billion in 2017, the largest continuous, uninterrupted cut to the debt of all time; however, despite this decrease, there is still a net deficit for the year, and the debt ceiling was increased in part to cope with Puerto Rican relief efforts. However, the deficit was still lower than projected, and due to the fact that the first part of the fiscal year was under former President Obama, Trump's total increase to the government debt after the debt repayment period ended was only twenty-eight billion total; including the amount that Obama spent in 2017 budget before Trump was inaugurated, about 171 billion dollars out of the 503 billion expected deficit. Since the 2017 budget ended, the debt has increased by a further 45 billion dollars; in total, since President Trump was inaugurated, the debt has increased by about 73 billion. It's highly likely that these unexpectedly low deficits could continue through future budgets under the Trump administration as well.

The cause of the federal debt decrease -- besides the fact that the federal government obviously paid off some principal given the USG always pays back its interest -- is not yet known or publicly announced.

It could be because of the fact that there have been widespread audits to locate wasteful expenditures under the Trump administration and efforts to save money by agency executives who have more experience with attempting to balance the budget than previous administrations--such as businessmen--may actually be much better at not overspending than previous administrations' agency executives.

It could also be due to the fact that many Trump executive orders issued in January involved cuts to spending, including a moratorium on most federal hiring between January and April, executive orders reducing spending on enforcement of the individual mandate and other parts of Obamacare, environmental regulations for US infrastructure projects, and regulations created by the executive branch. Another cut Trump did during this period is the defunding of foreign abortion organizations, which saves nine billion United States dollars per year.

Or it could be related to not taking out more loans, or simply refinancing old debts so that interest rates would be lower. We don't really know.

Please note, if you're thinking any of that sounds unconstitutional--I did not list anything that has been found unconstitutional in there, and reducing wasteful spending by executive order is actually fairly common, and in the 90s there was even a proposal to allow the President to veto individual budget items that he disliked, despite the fact that the Congress was Republican and the President was Bill Clinton, a Democrat.

Did you know that the economy is improving under President Trump?

While it is still the first year of the first term as I'm posting this, Republicans are ironically sort of gaining here from a precedent they tried to set while Obama was still President--rather than blaming Bush, they wanted to hold Obama accountable...and so, rather than crediting Obama, this time credit goes to Trump. Funny, right? But if you want to credit Obama for this stuff yourself, well, let's see if the improvements persist.

The American GDP grew 3.3% in the third quarter of 2017.

And finally, the economy has reached its potential, or optimal, output. This is an important marker of complete recovery from the Great Recession. Economic output can still increase beyond its theoretical potential, but not for extended periods of time--though America's economic output potential is growing at the moment, so that shouldn't be a problem.
