Trump claims progress after 500 days
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is touting what he sees as his top accomplishments after 500 days in office.
On Twitter Monday Trump says: "we have accomplished a lot - many believe more than any President in his first 500 days." Trump continued: "Massive Tax & Regulation Cuts, Military & Vets, Lower Crime & Illegal Immigration, Stronger Borders, Judgeships, Best Economy & Jobs EVER, and much more..."
Trump has signed substantial tax cuts into law and has successfully nominated a slew of conservative judges. Economic expansion continues and the unemployment rate has hit an 18-year low.
Illegal border crossings, as Trump measures them, have gone up since he took office and he is still seeking more funding for a long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
